Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Supernatural superhero Rachel Morgan must counter a strange magic that could spell civil war for the Hollows in this sexy and bewitching urban fantasy adventure in acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison's Hollows series.

Witch and day-walking demon Rachel Morgan has managed to save the demonic ever after from shrinking, but at a high cost. Now, strange magic is attacking Cincinnati and the Hollows, causing spells to backfire or go horribly wrong, and the truce between the races, between Inderlander and human, is shattering. Rachel must stop this dark necromancy before the undead vampire masters who keep the rest of the undead under control are lost and all-out supernatural war breaks out.

Rachel knows of only weapon to ensure the peace: ancient elven wild magic, which carries its own perils. And no one know better than Rachel that no good deed goes unpunished . . . 

Review:

"Harrison's slow but steady 12th and penultimate Hollows novel (following 2012's Ever After) puts even more pressure on Rachel Morgan, a witch and bounty hunter turned day-walking demon. A series of magical accidents endangers Cincinnati and its undead community. On the personal front Rachel must balance her bodyguard duties for elf drug lord Trent Kalamack, who was once her sworn enemy, with her growing forbidden attraction to him. When Rachel becomes host to the Goddess's sentient thought-entities, she holds the futures of elves and demons alike in her hands, but at a terrible risk to sanity and existence. The long-running romantic subplot makes substantial progress, with several cinematic action sequences and major world-building revelations interspersed among more intimate scenes. There's a general sensation of closure and imminent climax as Harrison maneuvers toward the end, and patient readers are promised a substantial payoff. Agent: Richard Curtis, Richard Curtis Associates." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Review:

“Longtime fans will find their emotions running the gamut, as events for many of Harrison's familiar characters take new and sometimes tragic turns this time around. Rachel's journey of self-discovery is hard, frightening and definitely life-threatening; it also makes for fantastic entertainment!” Romantic Times Bookclub

Review:

“Tense and thrilling.” Miami Herald

Review:

“The world-building is incomparable” Fresh Fiction

Review:

Review:

“The world-building is complex and solid...and the cast of characters is immensely engaging. The Undead Pool doesn't disappoint.” Tor.com
