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.
I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!
Probably, but I only listened...and I feel listening is always better!!!! lol
Pierce! He is cool..and of course Al...and Rachel!!! lol
If it was shorter...sure...but its a long one....and I loved it, I wouldn't have had it any other way!!
This was a good story....sometimes I do not agree with how Rachel acts or what she does, but I still love her....I was appalled with how the coven treated Rachel in this story, Rachel does a LOT of good with her magic as well as gets into a bit a trouble every now and then...I think I laughed more in this book, than in any of the others...and yes I cried a bit too...I cant believe I am going into book 9 now....I better slow down a bit...because I will certainly miss Rachel, Ivy, and Jenks!!! Highly recommend this series.....
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 can't wait to hear book 9. I am hooked on Kim Harrison. And I like Cincinnati. this is a win-win for me. try The Hollows series you may like it too.
Demons, witches, elves, pixies and werewolves all with cell phones, cars and everyday problems.
Kim Harrison's writing is fast paced, funny and imaginative. The narration is appealing - her voice is comfortable to my ears. I've already downloaded book 9.
