Ms. Harrison has outdone herself!

I had no idea of what to expect when it came to a world book. I’d surely never read one before, so I was anticipating something fairly close to a textbook, which generally = boring. This was certainly information rich, but boring is was not. In fact, it’s fantastic.

The theme is genius. It kicks off with the Hollows humor we all know and love, instantly drawing you in. It’s basically told from the POV of an innocent bystander of one of Rachel’s spells gone hila

This should be read after Pale Demon to avoid spoilers. The ending of this book is just after the time frame of Pale Demon. I skipped and skimmed some parts because of complex reasons but I do intend to take my time and truly absorb all the information sometime in the future. It would be a perfect adjustment in a re-read of The Hollows series.

For a series guide, The Hollows Insider is pretty good. Kim Harrison gives us not only a bunch of dry facts but an actual story. Told from the POV of an in

This is the first guidebook I've actively sought out for purchase. But, as a massive Hollows fan, when I heard this was to be released last October, I was excited for months and has this one pre-ordered. My rating fluctuates between four and five stars for various reasons, which will be explained below.

First, the book is told mainly through the investigative research and slander of a Hollows Gazette writer who was on the bus when Rachel's spell to catch a were backfired, causing everyon

It was kind of fun. In general this kind of thing doesn't add much to the series, but it's fun for the fans. This one was certainly done with good intentions: the book is very high quality paper (and heavy!), the images really look like I imagined the characters would look (unlike the graphic novel, that's the difference when the author is fully in control), the cover has a nifty glow-in-the dark moon and some city lights, and it's just overall slick and nicely produced. There isn't much new inf ...more

I honestly have mixed feelings about this. On the one hand, it was a really cool idea to bring all the facts and fun stuff about the Hollows series into one guide book for readers. It even has a nice story behind its creation.

The good - I really love the recipes, spells, and cute tidbits. The 12 Days of Christmas song lyrics were my favorite touch.

But there's a lot of things I didn't like - It was a drag to get through some stuff. I assume a lot of people reading this skimmed a lot. I never sk

Just not what I was hoping for. I wanted it so bad.. it was tedious, filled with detailed spells and how to do them supernatural guides, IS files, Newspaper articles, song verses, maps, all stuffed in a reporter journal. Really I got nothing out of it that I did not already know. There was so correspondences from/to Trent that I expected to be interesting but they really did not give anymore away. The books had mush more exciting details. I am just not interested in how to do the spells or the d ...more

Wow! The graphics are awesome. The Insider is a fun look into the background of the Hollows. I enjoyed peering into Trent's thoughts and gained a better insight of his personality through the Kalamack Industries interoffice memos. I hope Quen's quote, "It is not always what we do, Sa'han, but who we love that makes us who we are," in the last memo to Trent is a clue for the future of the series. In comparison to other authors' series information guides, Kim Harrison out did herself on this proje ...more

I purchased this book as a reference, and it is quality construction as a reference book should be. The jacket cover illustration is repeated on the hard cover. It is about the size of a textbook. As you may know, the Hollows is a series fantasy in an alternate reality. It is one of my favorite series. The back story and the rules under which this world operates are complex. The length of time between books makes points, spells, species particulars and events hard to remember.
