Kim Harrison's eighth Hollows novel, Black Magic Sanction, finds our favorite witch struggling against the witches' coven that has shunned her after discovering she carries demon blood. Suddenly, it seems like everyone wants a piece of her — Nick, her bad boy ex-lover; Pierce, her "first love"; and Trent, her nemesis since childhood — all offer help, mostly with strings attached. But can she trust them? Double- and triple-crosses ensue with Rachel's team sticking by her until the end. Rachel proves again that she is tough to bring down and a force to be reckoned with.
