Synopses & Reviews
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. Suddenly, more than Rachel's soul is at stake.
"Although this is her fifth outing for Tantor playing bounty-hunting witch Rachel Morgan, Marguerite Gavin seems far more comfortable here playing the supporting characters than the lead. Without much emotion or effort, Gavin speeds through most of book four in Harrison's series at a breakneck pace. Her Morgan has no passion or sense of humor and in turn no real likability. She fails to capture the tension and urgency that can clearly be found in Harrison's writing. On the positive side, Gavin's male roles are rich and well-voiced. A HarperTorch paperback (Reviews, May 22, 2006). (Apr.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"[Marguerite] Gavin's narrative passages capture irony, suspense, and humor, moving the story along quickly while maintaining mood and excitement throughout." ---AudioFile
