"I wouldnt miss a Kim Harrison book for anything."—Charlaine Harris, author of the Sookie Stackhouse novels

New York Times bestselling urban fantasy superstar Kim Harrison is back with Pale Demon—her ninth electrifying adventure featuring contemporary witch Rachel Morgan. This time Rachel's leaving the Hollows, on a cross-country road trip with a pixy, an elf, and a vampire, as she races to clear her blackened name at a California witches' convention in order to avoid an eternity of torment at the claws of a soul-devouring demon. Pale Demon is Kim Harrison at her gothic best—combining mystery, action, intrigue, paranormal romance, and breathtaking dark fantasy in a delicious witches brew that fans of Laurell K. Hamilton, Charlaine Harris, Stephenie Meyer, and Jim Butcher simply will not be able to resist.

Review:

"Harrison's intriguing ninth Hollows novel (after 2010's Black Magic Sanction) lives up to the earlier books, which established Harrison as a major urban fantasy player. Witch and bounty hunter Rachel Morgan needs to get to her brother's wedding. This leads to an uneasy alliance with her elven frenemy Trent Kalamack, who's being pushed toward Seattle by a quest. Meanwhile, Jenks the pixy is recovering from the loss of his wife, Matalina, and needs distraction. The result: 'A witch, an elf, and a pixy on the Great American Road Trip' through a landscape reworked by magic, facing down terrifying foes en route. Elegant and taut as a gymnast's cartwheel, Harrison's polished prose drives a story that will have readers swerving in their seats every time Rachel turns the wheel. (Mar.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

Synopsis:

Condemned and shunned for black magic,Rachel Morgan has three days to get tothe annual witches conference and clearher name, or be trapped in the demonicever-after . . . forever after.

But a witch, an elf, a living vampire, anda pixy in one car going across the country?Talk about a recipe for certain disaster, evenwithout being the targets for assassination.

For after centuries of torment, a fearsomedemon walks in the sunlight—freed at lastto slay the innocent and devour their souls.But his ultimate goal is Rachel Morgan, andin the fight for survival that follows, evenembracing her own demonic nature maynot be enough to save her.

OMG! Pale Demon is the best out of all the books in The Hollows Series. Kim Harrison has out done herself yet again. It draws you in for the very first chapter & it ends making you beg for more.

I have read all of the books in this series and have to admit I'd been disappointed with the last few books. So this was a nice surprise. While parts of the plot are predictable there are plenty of twists in this book. Also the main character, Rachel, seems more the like the witch we've all come to know and love. For those who have not read the series, I do recommend it. The last few books were not bad, but in this book Harrison seems back on point with the characters moving in a more interesting direction. This book left me wanting for the next installation in the series!
