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.
Rachel Morgan is an awesome character. I love the world that has been created for her as well as the supporting characters who are involved in the story. This is a great book and a great series.
Kim & Margurite are the"Dynamic Duo"in this explosive series.Rachel is on a perpetual rollercoaster ride of luck it seems.horrible luck one instance to a miracle the next.No one is WHO they seem to be,not even Rachel.The plot continues to thicken & just keeps getting more & more interesting.I am thoroughly loving this series & it's characters.There is a combination of whit,fun,excitement,sex,dark magic & sorrow which brings us back to that roller coaster ride Rachel is on including all her friends & also enemies.I am so excited to read on & find out more.

I compare Rachel Morgan very much to Harry Dresden because both start off nowhere near as powerful as they are in the later books, it doesn't seem like much, many books involve characters improving they're skills as they grow older & stronger, learn new techniques to a talent they never knew they had (Sanderson books), or given new talents by unlocking a vast amount of knowledge instantly...
That is obv a generality so there are plenty of books that are based off a characters progress as they essentially level up like in a RPG. I Believe this book is the strongest out of all the Morgan books because u get many things answered, suggestions of romance where u thought it might go, & a cast of characters that are very good.. 'Pale Demon' is another great book & glad they ended up decreasing the credits to 1 instead of 2 credit. I love strong female characters although Rachel almost seems to have a lot of help from other friends until she finally gets so pissed she does her thang & taps into the power she has but is afraid from a moral standpoint to use
I honestly don't know where this series is going after reading 'Ever After' which is not a bad thing but if u want to choose a good female series I think Morgan is it.... Mercy Thompson is cool as well but a wild coyote vs werewolf no matter how clever just ain't the same lol, Paks is not bad, I just think paladins are boring... too much of goody goodness...
Overall in the end, I'm rambling about the series as a whole being good because reviewing this book after I read it was obviously a missed opportunity lol, it was awhile ago, but I keep up with all her books, Harrison & Gavin are a great combo... Gavin is also great in another series I won't mention that is very good as well... but this book is 2 thumbs up for what happens to Rachel, the character involvement & how it ties into the future
The series slowed down a little in the last book, but the story is moving forward and new in this one.
I love the reader. She is always a good listen
Marguerite Gavin is a great reader, enjoyed listening to her.
most of the vampire good "chick" books. They are all about the same type of thing, but interesting to listen too while doing cooking, cleaning, and mindless things!
I enjoy the interaction of the characters in all of the books but this one is my favorite so far with a Lot more action and less whining.
Thrilling, Ingenious and Funny
I wouldn't compare it to any other since i found it very unique. But if you like me, like the books about Rachel and the gang you might also like the Georgina Kincaid or Succubus books by Richelle Mead.
I don't know if i have one in particular but i like the part when Rachel and Pierce have to hide in the hole in the ground.
When you're figthing for survival the lines between right and wrong changes.
The Rachel Morgan books are amazing and i hope we will get to se many many more of them.
Harrison is currently my favorite author, so I may be biased. I was disappointed by the previous book, but this one delivers! Gavin's narration is terrific, as always. We get more of all of our favorite characters (except David, who seems to be moving to a much more minor role), and once more Rachel manages to wiggle out of another impossible situation through trickery, a little thievery, and sheer moxie- and by accepting help from the most unexpected sources. Loved it! (Even Pierce has grown on me with additional listens...)
