Publisher's Summary

The sixth book in Harrison’s New York Times best-selling urban fantasy series starring Rachel Morgan. A pacey and addictive novel of sexy bounty-hunting witches, cunning demons, and menacing vampires.

Having barely escaped being skewered by the criminal vampire overlord of Cinncinati, Rachel now has even bigger problems to contend with. The demon, Algaliarept, although banished back into the ever after has infected others of his kind with his interest in a witch who can channel demon magic. Rachel soon finds herself with not one but three hellions on her tail - and one of them is even crazier and more dangerous than all the fairy assassins, weres, and vampires on the planet.< /p>

Published as The Outlaw Demon Wails in the US.

Pronunciation narrator

What the pixie fudge? Ok sure they had to use a different narrator for whatever reason but she could at least have listened to the previous books to understand how to pronounce words like piscary and ley line. So rubbish definitely a downgrade from the amazing narration we've had so far. Ruined the whole book for me.

Narration

This narrator absolutely ruined this book for me. I could not listen to her or that god awful music interlude...what were you thinking.....? Purchased the book old school and read it. if I could give less than 1 star for performance I would.

Narrator was annoying

I really like the story itself, but the narrator and her mispronunciation of characters names and accents were there weren’t accents previously was quite hard to listen to. I also didn’t like the music interludes. At first I thought I was getting a message or email.

Please bring back the original narrator

Terrible narration

Not sure why they changed the narrator but Gigi Birmingham was not a good choice. Pronunciation was completely different from the previous books which made for confusing listening. There was not enough variation between the characters voices, everyone sounded the same and Trent sounded like a woman.

Change of Narrator

If you could sum up Rachel Morgan: The Hollows (6) - Where Demons Dare in three words, what would they be?

Like any Star Trek Next Generation Episode its always good when Q Turns up. So when Al turns up again I say yippee.

What does Gigi Birmingham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I like her new voices for the different characters but her male voices are just two high. The only thing that bites his her pronunciation of ley line and Piscary

Horrible naration

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Gigi, find another job, please. Listening to your voice was a painful experience, God bless this is the only book from my favorite series narrated in a way that almost killed the story.

Any additional comments?

Despite your criminal choice of the narrator I am not returning this book, I bought it to listen to the story and I want to keep my collection complete. Please do not switch narrators in the middle of the series, I am paying for this terrible experience.

Good story, lousy delivery

The musical interludes are really annoying and pointlessly break up the narrative.

New narrator is okay but mispronounces a lot of words and damn Jenks' voice is annoying.

Glutton for punishment

This series is driving me crazy, the sheer stupidity and indecisive behaviour of the main character is beyond belief. Rachel constantly takes one step forward and then two backward, considering she is supposed to be a 26 year old woman she acts like a braindead teenager with no ability to educate herself. Please let the character grow up because at the monent she is just tedious.

Where Demons Dare

I have enjoyed the previous books in this series. However, beware that the narrator on this book is different to that than of the previous volumes. Although she is not bad, I found the differences in pronunciation and the accents/voices for the characters to be so different as to be rather off-putting.

annoying narrator

What did you like best about Rachel Morgan: The Hollows (6) - Where Demons Dare? What did you like least?

I have really enjoyed the series and am unsure why they changed the narrator for this book. Her voice is annoying with some of the characters and she pronounces things completely differently to the original narrator...so much so that on occasions I didn't know who she was talking about for a while. I am also getting fed up with the blood balance thing between rachel and Ivy, it detracts from the story and is going on too long. Hopefully the next book will be back on form.

What did you like best about this story?

Kim Harrison is an amusing writer, all series have there good and bad points.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Gigi Birmingham?

The narrator who reads all the other books in the series..Marquette Gavin.

Do you think Rachel Morgan: The Hollows (6) - Where Demons Dare needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

I hope so as the series hasn't finished!!

Why oh why has the Narrator changed!

I adore this series, but the change of narrator and wierd music between chapters has ruined this one for me. It is by no means a bad narrator, but every character has changed, the pronunciations have changed it is hard work to even finish it!! so relieved to see they go back to the original narrator for the next books.

Echoing Previous Reviews about Narrator Change

So I’d read the reviews when I noticed the narrator change, so knew in advance that it wasn’t going to be the same. However my thought was that I’d read these books years ago and I just fancied enjoying them again in audiobook format, I loved Marguerite’s performance in the previous books and figured I’d give this one a go just so I didn’t end up skipping a book.

I won’t lie, it was horrible at points, I’d cringe everytime “leeline” was said instead of the “leyline” and I could barely cope with how high pitched Jenks voice was being portrayed as. I did skip ahead A LOT and in the end figured that since everything wasn’t quite right I listened at 1.2 speed just to get through it quicker, with some points I picked the book back up instead of listening.

The story is amazing as always! But the change of narrator threw everything off! And what was with the random musical interlude in random spots? I’d get if it was used at the end of chapters, but most times it was thrown in to be suspenseful but ended up just throwing off the flow!

Don’t let this make you ditch the series though, maybe read this one and then pick up the next book to listen as the narrator switches back to Marguerite again 👌

Disappointed that the narrator changed and they didn't say things the same way and in turn the characters changed and not in a good way

Minor annoyances can't ruin great story

For whatever reason the usual narrator wasn't used this time, and she has a ... different interpretation of several character names. She also pronounces leyline to rhyme with beeline which is super annoying given this book uses that word a lot.

There's also a bizarre choice to use an instrumental piece at random points, sometimes in the middle of a conversation so not even to give a sense of time passing.

Still they go back to the usual narrator after this book so it is worth suffering through to continue the series

Brilliant story bad narrator

The narrator for this book made no attempt to keep the audience on board. Completely different pronunciations for names and places and made the main character sound like a whinny child.

Great story, prefer the other narrator

The story is brilliant but I didn’t like this narrator. She said the names and words different to the previous one, I found it very distracting and the random music bits to the parts she found needed it were irritating.. I’ve looked ahead and found the other narrator is carrying on with future books or I would be continuing on in print.

Horrifying narrator

Iv been listening to all the Rachel morgan books back to back. The stories flow really well, with no massive jumps in time. But this book has just upset the flow of the whole series. The story is good, but the narrator is so annoying it's hard to get past it and pay attention to the content. This is such a change, names are pronounced so differently it's hard to place the characters, the cadence and nuances that characters had were obliterated, as the voices didn't match the characters. Even the pronunciation of the main use of magic was mispronounced. I found my self. Correcting the narrator though out the book.

Very poor choice to change narrator, luckily the next boomk it's back to the usual person. I'm not saying the narrator is bad, just the sudden change throws it all off. Worth listening to to be able to follow the story to the next book.

Another great adventure

Didn’t care for this narrator at all! Glad it’s only this one book. I almost just skipped this book, but sooo glad I powered through it. A real turning point in the series. The story is a must listen. Big surprises & turns for Rachel.
Narrator pronounced names & words differently and Janx’s voice is ear piercing horrific!

Can’t wait to start next book and be back with Marguerite’s characters.
