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!

I love the Hollows Series by Kim Harrison and this one does not disappoint! The gang takes a road trip across country and the best part is the development of the already well established relationships. I love to see characters continue to grow and change even after 9 books in a series. It is an exciting, fun read.
"Publishers Weekly Review"
by Publishers Weekly,
"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.)"
