Not all hunters are bound by human laws . . .
Revisiting the paranormal realms they've made famous in their wildly popular fiction, New York Times bestselling authors Kim Harrison, Jeaniene Frost, Vicki Pettersson, and Jocelynn Drake—plus New York Times bestselling YA author Melissa Marr with her first adult supernatural thriller—unleash their full arsenal of dark talen...more
1. Key Line Drifter by Kim Harrison
Tried to get into this. It was about fairies and after 10 pages, I gave up. Did not interest me at all. Unwilling to finish.
2. Reckoning by Jeaniene Frost
Enjoyed it! This is the prequel to the Night Huntress series and features Bones! Love his character! The story dials us back to the time just before Bones goes to Ohio and meets...more
KIM HARRISON(Dawn Cook) is the best, you will be hooked from book 1, page 1.
SHE WILL ALWAYS LEAVE YOU WANTING MORE...AND WAITING FOR THE NEXT IN THE SERIES!
You will not be disappointed! K.H.'s characters come alive, you will laugh and cry with them, grow tremendously from book #1. I love the world that K.H. has created. Bio-engineered tomatoes, witches, vampires, pixies, faeries, trolls, wolves...
The first book runs kinda slow in the be...more
Vicki Pettersson's "Dark Matters" is a short that gives some background on a former Light Agent Jaden Jacks. JJ begins an illicit affair with a Shadow Agent, Solange. I like the way Vicki ties her short stories back...more
Ley Line Drifter by Kim Harrison: The main reason I purchased Unbound as I am a huge fan of the Hollows series. The story features Jenks, Rachel Morgan's pixie partner, as he investigates a disturbance in a park that is causing harm to pixie children. Jenks was his usual fun self and Bis, a gargoyle, added to the fun. It was also enjoyable to see a more confi...more
Jeaniene Frost's "Reckoning" - 4 Stars: Good story! New Orleans, 2004. Bones, an English vampire, is assigned to hunt down a ghoul couple who've returned to the city on a killing spree. A ghoul's method of killing is a bit gross, but enough detail i...more
In "Reckoning" by Jeaniene Frost we get a peek into Bones' life before he hooks up with Cat. There's a murderous couple loose in St. Louis and it's Bo...more
I was really happy that it followed Jenks (with Bis the gargoyle as his sidekick). I've only read the first book so far in that series, but he'd already grown to be my favorite one there. It was a good quick story. I don't know what else has been introduced in the series, but you can read it and not wonder what you've missed.

I'm glad she decided to write about Bones. He is an awesome character and it was interesting to be inside his...more
(Story takes place after White Witch, Black Curse)
If you're a fan of the Hollows series, you'll definitely want to read this short story. It feels like it's set the groundwork for these characters to re-appear in the main series (like how Pierce was first introduced in a SS). You don't have to have read any of the books in the series to understand what's going on, but for full enjoyment, I recommend reading the other books in the series first. There are WWBC sp...more
Jeanine Frost's story was a little different than I expected. I was going into it expecting an excerpt of both Cat and Bones, but Cat does not appear within the story. Rather this tale takes place in New Orlea...more
-10/5 Reckoning: I LOATH reckoning... the character is one dimention and a sexist pig. He has no weakness, and seems to get everything solved even though its not because he's smart or i...more
Line Drifter: Jenks is probably my favorite character in The Hollows Series so reading a whole story centered around him and the rest of the pixies was just great. Finally I got some written confirmation about the possible effects of the make-a-pixy-humanlike-size curse on Jenk's life span. I know the series is supposed to be dark and characters are supposed to die. I'm fine with it. As much as I like Matalina, her stubbornness will probably lead to her not taki...more
1. Key Line Drifter by Kim Harrison
This story was from the Rachel Morgan/Hollows world, and features Jenks. I loved the story, and how it showed his love and devotion to his family. I also suspect that characters mentioned here will show up in Rachel's books soon.
2. Reckoning by Jeaniene Frost
Loved it! This is a Bones story, following him to a hit in New Orleans right before he goes to Ohio (and Cat). You get to see what a g...more

Kim Harrison's story was focused on Jenks. A fellow pixie comes to him for help because a statue is causing one of his children to sleepwalk/fly and attack the statue so hard she's causing herself pain. It's also caused one of his newlings (kids n...more
'Ley Line Drifter' by Kim Harrison - Jenk's is hired to investigate a paranormal attack on a pixy family. - A great Jenk's character building / adventure story (Jenk's is awesome :) ). I thought the reasoning behind his actions was shaky at times. The door was left wide open for this plot line to be continued in future Hollows book.

Ley Line Drifter by Kim Harrison: (The Hollows SS - 7.5) ★★★★
I really liked this SS, since it gives a pixie eye view of the world. I'd never really thought about pixie culture before reading this one. This SS falls between White Witch, Black Curse and Black Magic Sanction, which means that Mattie (Jenk's wife) is still alive. That was an odd thing to see, but...more
Reckoning by Jeaniene Frost pits vampires against each other and against ghouls in New Orleans.
Vicki Pettersson's tale focuses on the Light vs. Dark struggle and the creation of the Kairos, a mixture of both.
Jocelynn Drake gives insight into the constant vigilance requir...more
Ley Line Drifter, by Kim Harrison 4-stars
As a long-time fan of the Hollows series, it was absolutely refreshing to get a novella with Jenks being the central character!!! He dec...more
Kim Harrison gives us a shortstory with Jenks on an indipendent assignment with Bis.
Jeaniene Frost story is Bones before he met Cat in New Orleans with Marie Laveau and encountering Ralmiel =)
My favorite Dark Matters by Vicki Pettersson gives us the story of Jaden Jacks, Hunter as we know from the Signs of Zodiac. How he met Solange, married her and how Warren decided to erase the groups memories of JJ. I loved reading h...more
