I would recommend it if they were into the series just because once you start it you need to know how it ends. But this book was dreadful. The first half was not to bad, but the second half was so painful. The narration was outstanding as always. Toward the end of the book I was wishing this was the last book of the series. Will I get the next book....yes I will just because I need to know how the story ends.
Some of the reviews have complained about the plot drift from the romance that seemed to be starting in book 9. I disagree, the books have always been about the person who, with some luck might bring some balance to her very out of whack world. I thought the story moved well and was every bit as enjoyable as each before. I love Kim Harrisons sense of humor and wit. She balances that wit with real bone deep characters that you will cry over and find yourself holding your breath about. Marguerite Gavin is a master and I am pleased she is once again bringing me the voices of the characters I have come to love.
Tell us about yourself! I love to read. I read two to three books a week. My favorite authors are Kim Harrison and Stephenie Meyer.
Yes I have been recommending Kim Harrison's books for years. She is my favorite author. Her boos draw you in.
Thre are many great parts of A Perfect Blood. I think Trent is adding a great deal to this book. I think it would be funny if Racheal and Trent got together.
I the seane with Al and the babies. I was so worried that he would try to take them to the ever after. I also liked it when the fairy made Jenks a jacket.
There are allways funny parts in Kim Harrison's books. I think the part that women gets turned into a Demond is really sad.
I Think this Book is great. I don't want the series to end.
I found this was an excellent addition to the series. As per usual the story keeps you interested till the end. I would recommend this series to anyone who likes this genre.

Being classified as dead, with a newly acknowledged demon status, and magically neutered like a dog, doesn't suck nearly as much as having to deal with the frustratingly idiotic bureaucracy of the DMV. Rachel Morgan isn't having a very good life, or afterlife according to the governmental powers that be. But when a low level department minion offers Rachel a case, she quickly finds herself entangled in the plans of a domestic terrorist organization known as HAPA or Humans Against Paranormals Association. The hate group's goal is to eradicate paranormals. Too bad Rachel's about as effective as a human right now with the binding cutting her off from the everafter and her magic. She'll have to bide her time until she can get the unbinding done. Unfortunately Rachel's blood is the key to their mission, and they're doing everything they can to get to her.
Kim Harrison's latest installment of the Hollows is simply seductive. A Perfect Blood draws you in and keeps you wanting more even after you've reached the end. Ten books deep into the series, Harrison has a firm grasp on the world and characters. The solidly established foundation allows her to focus on story lines and having a little fun with her writing. The plot was very interesting, I loved how inventive Harrison was in expanding everything she's built and incorporated real world concerns, then translating them into her paranormal world. It's always nice when an author avoids the well worn or expected story lines.
Rachel Morgan is feeling stuck, her roommates are moving on, but I think Morgan's acceptance is the next step in her growth. I like Trent's growth and direction, he and Rachel are still dancing around each other. I'm waiting for that love affair to explode into action. It can't be just me who'd love to see a demon elf baby. Though I'm not sure how much longer this series will continue considering the growing separation between Ivy, Morgan, and Janks which makes everything feel like it's ending.
This is THE series that got me hooked on audiobooks. There were about eight books out when I gave it a go and I really can't imagine experiencing this series any other way. If you've been thinking about trying audiobooks the Hollows is a great place to start. Marguerite Gavin is an amazing narrator, especially in this series. Gavin's voice is so belovedly associated with Rachel Morgan that there was a huge backlash when another narrator read the sixth book. In a way the switch just highlighted how good Gavin is, she really brings the books to life, and makes The Hollows one of my favorite series.
A Perfect Blood is another outstanding book, both written and read. So read it, or listen to it, either way don't miss out on this one.
5 stars is i love and i will read agani and again. 1 is i hate and i never want to hear about it ever again. YES = :))) - NO= :'(
i remember when i started reading the series 3 years ago. and every time I read the next book in the series i have more reason why i love this series..
I don't want to say what i liked in this book, and what new things happened... just that it is damn good and how morgen keeps on getting herself into trouble always :)
i think the next one will be really good

Rachel and Trent are getting ever closer to being the couple you really expect them to become. As for Rachel, she is now coming to grips with her "Demon" status. Al is now more of an ally...sort of the "Spike" from Buffy fame minus the intimate relationship with Rachel.
There is a new threat out of the dark...sort of an inderlander version of the despised Klan from our own reality. Glenn is spun off on a new tangent and Ivy joins the background with Jenks this episode as it really is about Trent and Rachel.
There is a wonderful twist at the end that leaves everything up for grabs.
Probably not, my friends and I are law enforcement/fighter types and it's too damn annoying listening to Rachel f-up every single time she's attacked. She has ridiculously great weapons and she just freezes and lets the bad guys beat the crap out of her. I can not believe she is supposed to be a trained 'runner'. Kim Harrison can write, but Tink's titties she definitely isn't a fighter. Or even a watcher of Law and Order episodes....The play between the characters is good though, and I'm invested enough in the gang to keep listening. Rachel does seem to be getting better with her choices - not good - but better, and that makes the book much less irritating that some of the others. Honestly, I always think that Rachel deserves the painful situations she gets into and I don't care about her survival all that much. I do love all of the support characters though, and I listen to the books largely to see what happens with them.
*sigh* I'm sure it will be the next in the series. Finishing a series is a compulsion, and I have to get unbelievably bored or upset not to finish one. In fact, it has only happened once.
She is great at giving life to the characters, though I will say that she messed up her voices a few times in this book. She would get confused maybe and say a line in the wrong voice before realizing who was supposed to be talking and switch over.
I'm not sure.
