New York Times best-selling author Kim Harrison returns to the Hollows with the electrifying follow-up to her acclaimed Pale Demon!
Ritually murdered corpses are appearing across Cincinnati, terrifying amalgams of human and other. Pulled in to help investigate by the I.S. and the FIB, former witch turned day-walking demon Rachel Morgan soon realizes a horrifying truth: a human hate group is trying to create its own demons to destroy all Inderlanders, and to do so, it needs her blood.
She's faced vampires, witches, werewolves, demons, and more, but humanity itself might be her toughest challenge yet.

I read a few reviews that complained about Rachel's character and the ending ot this book and can't really understand them. I like the Hollows series, I like the characters and I like some things didn't exactly go in the direction one would think (look out for the men who don't belong and don't make assumptions.) I agree Rachel could do more listening to the people around her, but then again I've met many Rachel Maryanna Morgon's before and guess what - they never listen, fall backwards into trouble and pretty much Forrest Gump their way out of the same trouble. If you're a fan of this series, as I am, you will enjoy this book.
As to Marguerite Gavin, no one else does this story like she does (as proven when someone else took on the reading and got a lot of the character interpretations and pronounce names completely wrong.) Can't see listening to this without Miss Gavin - especially her voice of Jinx, which is the voice I hear.
Over all enjoyable and wonderful edition to the series. It's a same you can't pass on Audiobooks like you pass on regular books, I would love to have so many people experience this awesome series.
Bringing Al back, and the relationship between Rachel and Trent moving forward instead of being stuck on the same groove in the record every story.
Voice to the characters, a sense of drama to the story even when characters have to sit back and watch action from afar and a sense that she was born to do this audiobook
I have been happily married for 17 years, I have 3 children (12, 14, & 16), and 2 dogs. I am currently working on a 2nd degree. Life is chaotic and stressful, but I wouldn't change it. I am blessed and enjoying my life.
Let me say first, that I have really enjoyed this series. I have listened or read all the books. But why did she sound so whiney?! She made all these threats throughout the entire story and backed it up with NOTHING! ZIP! NADA! Just a whiney little girl with lots of words and just full of it. If you are a freakin demon you ought to be able to kick butt, what the heck!
i was quite disappointed with this new book, despite having waited months for it. the storyline was disappointingly repetitive and Rachel morgan came across as a bit of a retarded dimwit. i found it really frustrating, given the rich storyline of the previous books.
was definitely not at all impressed, especially given how ridiculously expensive it was.
great performance though.
I like UF, PRN and historical romances. Some of my favorite authors are Jeaniene Frost, Karen Marie Moning, Richelle Mead, Kim Harrison, Chloe Neil, Lisa Keypads & Julia Quinn. The list keeps growing every day :o)
This series is getting better and better with every book. I love the way Kim Harrison portraits Rachel. She has grown so much since the first book and even though the poor woman has the worst luck in the world. She never seems sour or whiny; she keeps her beliefs as a shield and grows more confident in every book. I particular like that in this book we get to see and understand more of Trent. He is also changing and becoming more mature and understanding.
Marguerite Gavin 's narration was perfect. I love all her voices especially her Jenk's voice. She makes me laugh every time :o)
I absolutely love these books and can’t wait for the next installment. Kim Harrison you are a genius!!!
