Publisher's Summary

The author of the best-selling Dead Witch Walking makes her hardcover debut with this spellbinding new supernatural adventure featuring the highly original Rachel Morgan.

Things are going well for Rachel Morgan, witch, independent runner, and one-third of the runner service Vampiric Charms. She's got a business, friends, even a semi-regular - and always-sexy - boyfriend. So what if Kisten is a vampire? So's her roommate, Ivy....

But an unexpected call for help sends her out of Cincinnati on a desperate trip to rescue the son of her business partner, Jenks. It's fun at first, even with dealing with a human-sized Jenks (you cannot believe how much trouble a six-foot pixy can cause, especially when he looks like a supermodel), but the road trip quickly turns dangerous when confronting an old love becomes a fight for survival. 

For seeing Nick Sparagmos again is the least of Rachel's problems - the ancient, mystical statue he has stolen holds the key to sinister, wild magic that can change humans into Weres. And for the first time in millennia, the Were packs are banding together to overthrow human and Inderlander alike. The fight that follows will shake Rachel’s very soul...and she will never be the same.

Main character being an irrational idiot

A fun series if you don't mind the main character (Rachel Morgan) being an irrational idiot. Frustrating at times but plot armor and raw power keep her alive.

Another Excellent Gavin Narration

I wrote an excellent, considered review, but once again, the changes in the allready-challening Kindle keyboard have annoyed me to the point of starting over! I will get another external keyboard, since my old one bit the dust. This keyboard is my number one problem with Kindle. The last update changed many things for my Kindle experience, none of them for the better. 🤐 I have been a heavy Kindle user and a fan since the first reader, so that says a lot.

Now onto the review, Gavin is great. The book is too long. The story action is good, but there's too much repetition of the Ivy/Rachel dynamic by the three Vampiric Charms partners and Kisten. All four of them in every configuration discuss it endlessly. We knew all this from book one, and I'm sick of it. Harrison should have let this develop naturally in a more subtle fashion within the stories. She probably could have cut this book down by a third and saved the readers some time and irritation. The scene in the van and Rachel's continuous inner dialog are too much. Folllowed by another endless discussion between the four, two and three at a time, one directly after another! Where is a decent editor? You'd think somebody would pay closer attention to the writer's first hardcover print! Many readers didn't finish the book or continue the series because of this pointless detail.

Recommended, but if you are as bothered by these issues as I am, you may choose to read this installment of the series instructions of listening. It's easier to skip over the repetitive parts.

series is still great

I am still loving what Kim Harrison is doing. The last few books focused on demons and vampires. This book focused more on werewolves, fleshing out the world that they live in. The comedy is still great, the MC still wants to have sex with everyone she meets, and we still hear about every good outfit in perfect detail.

If you liked this series so far, you will love this one. Highly recommended.

Weird

Great narrator but wtf with the speeding up her voice until it sounds like she had helium here and there throughout the book?! Really weird to listen to but, when I was able to tune out the speed up and slow down of the narrator’s voice I enjoyed the story.

Love/Hate

Rachel really got on my nerves, she did so much whining 🙄 in this book!! I just wanted to hit her in the back of the head and tell her to pull herself together, lol. Minus that, I loved the storyline and as always, the narration was phenomenal!! I definitely have a connection with each of the main characters, and even the side characters had depth. Looking forward to the next book in the series!!

Not her best

Rachel Morgan is in trouble again. However, in this particular addition it seems to be dragged out to extremes. So many half story lines going that it was clear the author struggled to keep track of it all. Almost manically written it hems and haws to a conclusion, but not as fulfilling as previous books.

All your favorite characters are there, it just seems there is a struggle to give depth to them in satisfying stories. The vampiric pseudi rape storylines are so pathetically boring and pandering to the lowest common denominator that I nearly stopped there. Please stop trying to make rape seem sexy, it's not. It's not sexy when it's guy on girl, not sexy girl on girl, it is just NOT sexy! Find a new conflict, please. Giving the books one more shot, but this may be the end of my run with Rachel.
