Number-one New York Times best-selling author Kim Harrison returns to the supernatural adventures of Rachel Morgan in the penultimate book of the Hollows series.
Witch and day-walking demon Rachel Morgan knows magic - earth, ley line, even the forbidden demon magic - and that knowledge has saved her life more than once. But now something - or someone - is attacking Cincinnati and the Hollows, causing spells to backfire or go horribly wrong while living vampires attack humans and Inderlanders alike.
The pressures build when the city is quarantined to contain the unreliable magic, and Rachel must stop the attacks before the undead vampire masters who keep the rest of the undead under control are lost and it becomes all-out supernatural war.
The only way to do so is through the ancient elven magic, but that carries its own perils - for magic always has a price, and gods do not come lightly when called.

My name is Mary. My huband Ken and I listen to books. Ken is a truck driver and he says that it helps the miles go faster.
a great continuation of a great story. Kim Harrison is the best and the narration is excellent.
Spoiler alert...Trent and her finally fall in love! I've been waiting for this to happen for so so long! Who knew Knewt was going to turn out to be the sane one!?! Loved this book!
I born a long time ago and grew up to be who I am today.
This would have been a better book if the concepts in it had been introduce, even in the slightest, at least 5 novels ago. The whole plot of this book seems to just come out of nowhere. In fact, this book is only good if you think of it as a very long prequel to the next book that follows.
No. I just don't think the genre is bad or the writing is bad, The material just comes out of nowhere and Rachel does little but play catch up all the time.
She bring the book the life the way no one else can. No really, they changed narrators for one book and it was horrible.
At least it is the second to last book.
I love The Hallows Series! My only complaint is that after listening to 11 or so audio books in this series Marguerite Gavin has a few inconstancies in her performance. Voices change and names are pronounced differently. It's just something that a regular listener would notice.
The Hallows cones alive in this next installment of the Rachel Morgan saga. There may not be a lot of action but the characters are growing and becoming like family as we watch them grow and evolve. I've come away from this story eager for the next one.
"Another great adventure from my favourite demon."
A nice continuation of the story. Well done Kim Harris in creating characters we are eager to follow.
Jenks. He has all of the best lines.
Trent's fiancé getting a verbal slap (long anticipated).
