Publisher Comments:

Despite dating one vampire and living with another, Rachel Morgan has always managed to stay just ahead of trouble...until now.

A fiendish serial killer stalks the Hollows, claiming victims across society, and the resulting terror ignites a vicious Inderland gang war. And while the ancient artifact Rachel is hiding may be the key to stopping the murderer, revealing it could also create a battle to the death among the numerous supernatural races that live in and around Cincinnati.

For every action has its price, and when the vampire master Piscary is set free and the demonic Algaliarept dares to walk openly under the sun, even Rachel Morgan can't hide forever.

Review:

"In bestseller Harrison's fifth demon-kicking extravaganza to feature Rachel Morgan, the first in hardcover (after 2006's A Fistful of Charms), the Cincinnati-based bounty hunter and spell caster still possesses 'the focus,' a 5,000-year-old demon-crafted Were artifact. With the help of her pixie partner Jenks and Detective Glenn, Rachel must deal with demons, the elf Trent Kalamack and master vampire Piscary, who along with angry Weres, struggle for possession of the artifact. Meanwhile, a serial killer is on the loose and Rachel's alpha werewolf pal, David Hue, becomes the prime suspect of the FIB (aka the human-run Federal Inderland Bureau). Action-packed and full of Rachel's persistent erotic ruminations, this titillating tale includes a shocking finale that will leave fans panting for the next installment in the Hollows series. 11-city author tour."

Wow! I don't even know how to rate the book because I'm so bummed out; I have loved all of the books so far and how they progressed, the hints of things to come, the resolution of other mysteries. But the way this book ended really really upset me. I agreed with what gothgirl and gean had to say in their reviews; feeling like the series is ruined for me right now. I couldn't wait to read more developments about the triangle! I had really high hopes here! I LOVED that character! Now it only has one direction to go unless another person comes on board and I don't know how I feel about that. I love the way Kim writes because I can just smell or see or feel the things she describes. I love how it more about the people and their thoughts, and the action, and the magic, I love the detail. I like how it's not a 'romance' novel but yet it is, in emotion. And of course that the women are badasses. I especially love Jenks and he never fails to make me laugh ("Let's kick this pig" Loved it) or cry depending on what he does or what Rachel thinks about it. I will suffice it to say I love reading everything Rachel and company, but this ending really left me sad sad sad and although I know I'll read the next book to see what else is going on...I will never forget how betrayed I felt about losing such a great character and all of the places it could have gone. And I wonder who else will go in the next one! I'm still crying about it :`( But, I'm definitely looking towards finding out who the murderer is, what the club is all about, what is going on with Newt, etc. etc. etc. But can't rate it today when I'm still bummed. I know, I'm a dork, but what can I say;, I take my reading to heart!

I have greatly enjoyed the previous Kim Harrison books in this series but the ending for this book really threw me. She has ruined the series for me with her ending of this book. I don't think I can continue to read these books knowing that she does not mind killing off characters that have been so important to the story so far.

Kenda Montgomery, March 30, 2007 (view all comments by Kenda Montgomery)
In many ways, Rachel Morgan’s problems come full circle in this fifth installment of the Hallows series. With enemies drawing closer than they ever have before, her palette of choices is fast becoming slim to none. In one power play after the next, Rachel’s about to fall behind enemy lines, instead of the one step ahead we’ve been seeing.

It’s back to Cincinnati after her desperate attempt to save her pixie partner’s son and her ex-boyfriend, Nick. Rachel harbors a rather nasty curse trapped in a bone prison, the focus, which threatens to twist the realities of Weres and vampires alike, both of wom squabble over it like children. With Trent vying for it, someone killing for it and our favorite demon Al lusting after it, Rachel once again has to find a way to undo another problem forced upon her. As the delicate balance between her and Ivy begins to come to a roiling boil, it’s all the earth witch can do to stay this side of good, acceptable magic. With her special blood and desire to help others though, it’s near impossible for her to deflect the trouble that comes looking for her with a vengeance. Unable to unload the focus on just anyone, she’ll have to decide who’s the best choice…and none of them are looking particularly stellar.

The first of Harrison’s series to be offered in hardback, it’s a worthy installment for it, tipping the scales even further towards excellent. For a Few Demons More wraps up some of the problems that Rachel has been having over the course of the other books while of course unraveling others even further. Trent comes back into play and it’s a totally different side of him than readers have read before. Ceri, the powerful ex-demon familiar, shows Rachel just how much she respects her and Rachel’s pack mate David takes on a major role. The demon Newt is back and we get some interesting information and insights into that character too, though whether they help or hinder the outlook on Newt is the reader’s choice. Ivy’s dilemma with Piscary is excruciatingly dealt with and it was a struggle at certain points to get past the powerful emotions Harrison has written surrounding Ivy and Rachel. As always, Harrison manages to insert a shocking twist, one I never saw coming, involving Rachel and another of her closest friends. For a Few Demons More is inundated with its fair share of pain, angst and utter despair and readers most certainly may feel closer to Rachel than ever before because of it. It’s not without it’s glimmer of hope though and some very interesting new characters are introduced that I hope will continue to make appearances in the next book, most notably a mysterious organization of demon practitioners and Dr. Ford Miller, a psychiatrist for the FIB (Federal Inderlander Bureau, the human division to deal with Inderlanders). In the end, as much as Rachel has had to deal with, she’s never appeared stronger to me. As always, the once-a-year release of Harrison’s Hallows series just can’t come fast enough and I only hope that there will be many, many more to come.
