After 10 years and 13 adventures, The Witch with No Name (Voyager) is the triumphant conclusion to Kim Harrison's Hollows series. Rachel Morgan has come a long way from her early days as an inexperienced bounty hunter. To save her best friend Ivy's soul and the rest of the living vampires, and to keep the demonic ever-after and our own world from utter destruction at the hands of fanatics, she must risk everything. In The Getaway God (Voyager), the sixth high-octane adventure of Richard Kadrey's bestselling Sandman Slim series, James Stark must save himself — and the entire world — from the wrath of some enraged and vengeful ancient gods.
Kim Harrison's eighth Hollows novel, Black Magic Sanction, finds our favorite witch struggling against the witches' coven that has shunned her after discovering she carries demon blood. Suddenly, it seems like everyone wants a piece of her — Nick, her bad boy ex-lover; Pierce, her "first love"; and Trent, her nemesis since childhood — all offer help, mostly with strings attached. But can she trust them? Double- and triple-crosses ensue with Rachel's team sticking by her until the end. Rachel proves again that she is tough to bring down and a force to be reckoned with.
Synopses & Reviews
In New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison's most complex and nuanced adventure yet, bounty hunter and witch Rachel Morgan fights a deadly battle — mind, body, and soul.
Rachel Morgan has fought and hunted vampires, werewolves, banshees, demons, and other supernatural dangers as both witch and bounty hunter — and lived to tell the tale. But she's never faced off against her own kind . . . until now.
Denounced and shunned for dealing with demons and black magic, her best hope is life imprisonment — at worst, a forced lobotomy and genetic slavery. Only her enemies are strong enough to help her win her freedom, but trust comes hard when it hinges on the unscrupulous tycoon Trent Kalamack, the demon Algaliarept, and an ex-boyfriend turned thief.
It takes a witch to catch a witch, but survival bears a heavy price.
"The eighth bewitching but overly dense Hollows adventure (after 2009's White Witch, Black Curse) updates the travails of Rachel Morgan, delectable magical jack of all trades. Having recently learned that Rachel is a witch-born demon whose children would be demons, a white magic coven is shunning her and accusing her of black magic. They offer her a terrible choice: sterilization or imprisonment in Alcatraz. Trent Kalamack, drug lord and elf in hiding, offers to get the coven off her back, but her double-crossing 'ex-rat ex-boyfriend,' Nick, shows up and lands her in more hot water. As Rachel battles those she thought were on her side, her survival depends on a paranormal cornucopia of elves, demons, vampires, gargoyles, pixies, and even a leprechaun. This thrill ride celebrates the can-do spirit of one of urban fantasy's most charming witches." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
