The Outlaw Demon Wailsby Kim Harrison
Demons, elves, vampires, and witches... just a few of my favorite things! Thank heaven for Kim Harrison and her Rachel Morgan series, which feeds my addiction on a regular basis. It was hard, but I waited patiently, like a good little urban fantasy-crazed fan, for this book to appear. It is Harrison's best by far. The plot, as usual, is well crafted and uncluttered. Too many late-to-the game writers in this genre seem to have a difficult time with this concept. All the regular characters are back as Rachel is forced to team up with her arch-nemesis, Trent, a criminal kingpin and elf, in order to save herself and a friend. Along the way, there are some terrific twists. I loved watching Rachel deal with unsettling revelations about her family history and find a little peace in her confusing relationship with her vampire roommate, Ivy. If you haven't read this wonderful series, start with the first book, Dead Witch Walking. Prepare to be hooked!
Synopses & Reviews
In this riveting new tale in the bestselling Hollows series, vampire and bounty hunter extraordinaire Rachel Morgan must play a dangerous game in which the prize is her immortal soul.
"Red-headed witch Rachel Morgan has a demon after her, but that's just one of her many troubles in this action-packed sixth installment of Harrison's Hollows series (after 2007's For a Few Demons More). A nice guy might be moving into Rachel's town and life, but she's still getting over her last boyfriend, whose murder she has yet to solve. Elf politician Trent Kalamack wants her to go to the ever-after on a dangerous mission. Rynn Cormel, Cincinnati's new master vampire and ex-leader of the free world, is interfering in her life. Her friend, former demon familiar Ceri, is unexpectedly pregnant, by an unexpected partner. On top of all this, Rachel worries she may have had a too close encounter with a vampire and soon becomes concerned about her own abilities with demon magic. With the help of her feisty mother, Alice, and her pixy partner, Jenks, Rachel boldly tackles every challenge amid a cascade of plot twists that will delight Harrison's fans. 9-city author tour." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"This is the strongest entry in the series so far, and based on the loose ends left at the book's conclusion, there's more of Rachel's story left to tell. Highly recommended." Library Journal
"Harrison devotees should find ample emotional revelations and plot resolution, with enough loose ends to have them eagerly awaiting the next installment." Kirkus Reviews
To save the lives of her friends, Rachel did the unthinkable: she willingly trafficked in forbidden demon magic. And now her sins are coming home to haunt her.
As Rachel searches for the truth behind a terrifying murder, an even greater menace threatens, for the demon Algaliarept will stop at nothing to claim her, and the discovery of a shocking family secret throws Rachel's entire life into question. If she is ever to live free, Rachel must first walk willingly into the demonic ever-after in search of long-lost ancient knowledge.
But when you dance with demons, you lay your soul on the line . . . and there are some lines that should never be crossed.
