Publisher Comments:

The evil night things that prowl Cincinnati despise witch and bounty hunter Rachel Morgan. Her new reputation for the dark arts is turning human and undead heads alike with the intent to possess, bed, and kill her — not necessarily in that order.

Now a mortal lover who abandoned Rachel has returned, haunted by his secret past. And there are those who covet what Nick possesses — savage beasts willing to destroy the Hollows and everyone in it if necessary.

Forced to keep a low profile or eternally suffer the wrath of a vengeful demon, Rachel must nevertheless act quickly. For the pack is gathering for the first time in millennia to ravage and to rule. And suddenly more than Rachel's soul is at stake.

About the Author

When not haunting the stores for good music, good chocolate, and sexy boots, New York Times bestselling author of Dead Witch Walking; The Good, the Bad, and the Undead; and Every Which Way But Dead, Kim Harrison is hard at work on the next novel of the Hollows.

Kenda Montgomery, July 5, 2006 (view all comments by Kenda Montgomery)
I love this series. No, I mean I REALLY love this series! A quick rundown of its finer points: It?s got action, though not over the top. It has a smidgeon of romance that lends a slight sensitive air to an often dangerous and suspenseful atmosphere. It has amazingly strong characters, from villain to heroine, that make you feel and know who they really are. And finally, though never least, it has a solid plot that advances satisfactorily with each progressive installment.

Rachel Morgan has had some tough issues to deal with in less than one year. She?s been marked for death by the organization that she once worked for and survived. She?s been marked and almost claimed by a rather nasty demon, yet managed to best even that complex being. And so achingly close to home, she?s still coming to terms with her scattered love life, confusingly twisted around her roommate Ivy, her lover Kisten and former boyfriend Nick. It?s not a love triangle, but it comes durn close! When her estranged partner, Jenks, comes on board for one last run, they?re off to Michigan to pull Nick and one of Jenks? sons out of trouble. As always with our dear, flawed Rachel, she gets way more than she bargained for and soon they?re fending off the unwanted attentions of some disturbingly unified were packs. Why are the Weres uniting and what will it bring as the normally submissive species climbs its way towards top of the supernatural food chain? Nothing good for the vamps, which have much to lose if the packs do unite. With ultra aggressive Weres sniping from every direction, and more undead looking on her with not so subtle lust, what?s a poor earth witch to do? With Rachel, it's an open book and fans may be surprised at the lengths she?s willing to go to in this one.

If Harrison?s new book is on the shelves, every other book I?ve got waiting to be read will just have to wait longer. Harrison pulls readers right in once again with this excruciatingly enticing installment, which I am completely convinced is the best of the series to date. Told in the first person, we?re allowed a depth of Rachel?s character that seems so much more personal than with books told in third person. Readers will feel every punch, every wound and recovery effort Rachel takes on throughout the story, as well as every emotion. This is an emotional wringer, with Rachel, Jenks and Ivy?s problems laid barer than they?ve ever been before. There are two levels of betrayal that raised the bar in this one, one towards Rachel, the other towards Jenks that helped set this one apart from the previous books. And of course, the ever suspenseful situation of Rachel and Ivy? Kim Harrison is an amazing author, one I am so happy to see continuing with this thrilling rollercoaster ride we?re on with her. Waiting with not much patience here for the next one!
