I’m reviewing The Hollows Insider by Kim Harrison at Smexybooks

In the Hollows, the supernatural Inderlanders rule, and humanity must abide by their conventions, or else.

To survive among vampires, witches, Weres, gargoyles, trolls, fairies, and banshees—to say nothing of demons—humanity needs a guide. And now, written by Kim Harrison herself, here is an insider’s look at the supernatural world of the Hollows, from an overarching new story to character profiles, maps, spell guides, charm recipes, secret correspondence from the elusive Trent Kalamack, and much more.(Goodreads)

I’ve never been a fan of companion or insider books. They are usually nothing more then an encyclopedia of recycled facts about the characters. You may learn something new but not enough to justify the often outrageous price. The Hollows Insider was a pleasant surprise. Set up more as a behind the scenes story, it sheds light on the characters and main arc. The Hollows series is told in the first person; from the protagonist’s (Rachael Morgan) point of view. Everything we see and hear is through her. In here we are able to see and hear what Rachael couldn’t.
