I have really enjoyed this series. The potent mix of satire, sensuality, and action really appeals to me. I was however disappointed by all the whinning of the main character in the book. I was very taken aback by it as the other books hardly had any! I hate to say so but at several momemts I stopped the book and because I couldn't take the victim attitude the main character was portraying. I hope and trust the next in the series will not be so bad as this is one of my favorite in the series.
On a positive note, Mrs. Harrision did lay the groundwork for the series continuation and I look forward to see where she's going with it. I won't give any spoilers but the hints are pretty exiting!
I never write reviews but I have to say something about this book! I loved it, it is edge of your seat exciting. I couldn't stop listening, I use audiobooks for my commutes to work and when I drive around town and multiple times I found myself sitting in my carport with the car running not wanting to get out because the book goes from one exciting and hilarious scene to the next! This is Kim's Best Yet!
I thought it was me. I too am/was a big fan. This book made me angry from chapter 5. The whining was beyond belief. Sadly the narrators voice just made it worse. At a point I was actually rooting for the villain. Disappointed
Sci-fi/Fantasy geek :)
Dawn Cook (a.k.a Kim Harrison) does not disappoint! Some authors let you down after 2 or 3 books, but this is book 8 and this one is just as good as the first. Some witchcraft, demons, pixies, vampires, demons, romance, action, comedy, and some top notch voice-acting make this series a pure joy to listen to.
Okay, so maybe a year is a long time to wait for a book, but it was totally worth the wait. Can't wait for the next book to see what happens with Rachel and Al.
I love books, it's my great escape.
An exciting rollercoaster ride is the best way to discribe this book. From the start to finish, I was on the edge of my seat. Even if this books would have costed three credits, I would purchase it again....it was just that good!
I've always loved books. Even before I could read I've loved them. Fact or Fiction, I love books. I'd sooner read a book than see a movie.
Kim Harrison's books would be one of the few books where I would want to listen to again. They are exciting and funny.
There is a very steamy scene involving two of the characters hiding in a hole in the ground. I'm not a big fan of sex scenes, but this was interesting. There was also a very sad scene which moved me to tears.
There are a couple great scenes. Harrison's imagination and writing skill make it difficult for me to choose. The first one that comes to mind is Rachel first being summoned by someone using the demon Algaliarept's name.
Demons, Elves, Fairies, Pixies, Witches Oh My!
Rachel Morgan's story keeps getting better with each novel. This is one of my favorites.
