I've anxiously awaited the return of Rachel Morgan and her fellow Vampiric Charms partners, Jenks and Ivy. White Witch, Black Curse continues to develop these entertaining yet complex characters, and, as usual, Harrison includes several subplots that intrigue and add to the overall story. Rachel continues to kick butt and push the edge of the envelope in her quest to beat the bad guys. Again, I’m left panting for the next book in the series.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“The world of the Hollows is fast-moving, funny, harrowing, and scary, and—the greatest compliment to a fantasy—absolutely real.”
—New York Times bestselling author Diana Gabaldon

 

Kim Harrison is a New York Times-bestselling phenomenon, in the superstar pantheon along with Laurel K. Hamilton and Charlaine Harris of Sookie Stackhouse fame. Return to “the Hollows” in White Witch, Black Curse, as tough-as-nails bounty hunter witch Rachel Morgan seeks vengeance for the death of her lover among the creatures of the night. Indeed, Charlaine Harris herself has nothing but praise for Harrisons peerless protagonist, promising, “Youre going to love this bounty hunter!” White Witch, Black Curse is contemporary dark fantasy at its electrifying best.

Review:

"Confusion reigns for characters and readers in the complicated seventh urban fantasy outing (after 2008's The Outlaw Demon Wails) for witch detective Rachel Morgan. Rachel's reputation is in tatters — to save humanity, she used powers that are considered evil — and she's still devastated by the mysterious death of her boyfriend six months earlier. Her attempts to solve his murder bleed into a case involving an emotion-sucking banshee, and soon Rachel has to bring in her PI partners — Ivy, a bisexual vampire, and Jenks, a pixie in existential crisis — along with empathic psychiatrist Ford and the banshee victim's father, Federal Inderland Bureau captain Edden. Harrison's unique vampire mythology unduly complicates world-building, and newcomers will be desperate for a glossary, but the nearly nonstop action nicely plays off the poignancy of Rachel's difficult life." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Some wounds take time to heal . . . and some scars never fade.

Rachel Morgan, kick-ass witch and bounty hunter, has taken her fair share of hits, and has broken lines she swore she would never cross. But when her lover was murdered, it left a deeper wound than Rachel ever imagined, and now she won't rest until his death is solved . . . and avenged. Whatever the cost.

Yet the road to hell is paved with good intentions, and when a new predator moves to the apex of the Inderlander food chain, Rachel's past comes back to haunt her.

Literally.

For all you die hard Kim Harrison fans and lovers of all things Rachel Morgan, such as myself, you will not be disappointed. Kim takes us on a whirlwind adventure, taking place in a few short days(I read it in the same amount of time). We are introduced to the banshee, the lastest inderlander to need Vampiic Charms special kind of attention. I laughed and I cried as Rachel recalls the death of Kisten and together with Ivy (auramates)solves his murder. I can't wait to find what the Hallows has in store for us next.
