Well, it took me several years, several recommendations, and an impending author event to drive me to read the first of Harrison's "Hollows" books... and it only took me 3 days to get through the first book... what does that tell you? I can't think of a damn thing wrong with it except the Horror classification. I was never particularly horrified by anything that I read in here...to be honest it's more Urban/Dark fantasy than anything... but I quibble. I quibble.

Harrison's main character, Rachel, is likeable and funny. Her Vamp contemporary, Ivy, is also enjoyable to read. My favourite was Jenks, but I always appreciate the side character/comic relief aspect. Was it worth the wait? I think so.. I will be reading more of Harrison, many many more. I am just so glad that it lived up to all of the hype and expectation, even if Rachel did spend a third of the book as a mink.
