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

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!

Rachel is at it again. However, I am starting to see a pattern...Trent offers job, Rachel refuses, Rachel relents, Rachel fills with self-loathing.
There were a few points that made this stand out and bumped it from three stars to four. No spoilers, but one was a very poignant scene between Jenks and and his beloved wife after a faerie attack. However, this was sort of Rachel's fault. She grows a conscience at the most peculiar times.
We do get to see her move forward a smidge in her relation with Pierce, and perhaps (but I would not hold my breath) she has finally seen Nick for what he is.
We shall see.
How many times can you get summoned/have run-ins with a bunch or witches and escape? How many times can Rachel think "But he (Pierce) wasn't Kisten." By halfway through the book, I was rolling my eyes every few minutes. Really sad about it because I've really enjoyed most of the series so far.
Yes, possibly. I feel like at this point I've gone so far in the series that I might as well see how it ends. It's just a little disappointing the the storytelling seems to be deteriorating.
I really enjoy her voice and her various character voices.
No. Of all The Hollows' books I've read/listened to, this is the one I'd least want to see as a movie.
