Publisher's Summary

The evil night things that prowl Cincinnati despise witch and bounty-hunter Rachel Morgan. Her new reputation for the dark arts is turning human and undead heads alike with the intent to possess, bed, and kill her - not necessarily in that order.

Now a mortal lover who abandoned Rachel has returned, haunted by his secret past. And there are those who covet what Nick possesses - savage beasts willing to destroy the Hollows and everyone in it if necessary.

Forced to keep a low profile or eternally suffer the wrath of a vengeful demon, Rachel must nevertheless act quickly. For the pack is gathering for the first time in millennia to ravage and to rule. Suddenly, more than Rachel's soul is at stake.

And hear more from the Rachel Morgan series!

An artifact in the wrong hands

Any additional comments?

This book was by far the best in the series so far. <br/>Nick, the human thief, has gotten himself and Jax (the pixie son of Jenks) into real trouble with several wolf packs. Rachel and Jenks team up on a mission to save Jax and to free Nick from his captors. Rachel feels she owes Nick because he saved her life once. <br/>There's a whole lot of dark spellcasting/demon rituals in this book that are bad but done with good intentions - toeing a very gray area of magic.<br/>There's a cute new character, Rex, who is an adorable kitten that Jax befriended.<br/><br/>An artifact causes untold trouble for a vast number of people. It's an ancient powerful artifact that can do a lot of good and a lot of bad. It would allow werewolves to turn humans into werewolves with just a bite and it would allow several packs to unite (if not all packs) under one Alpha. The artifact could shift the balance of the Interlander community and possibly the Interlander-human community. In the right hands it has the potential for small good. Figuring out whose hands (if anyone's at all) this artifact should be in is very tricky.<br/><br/>There's a whole lot of scheming, counter-scheming, lying and action in this book.<br/>And there are also some very heartfelt, open, honest emotional scenes.<br/>Pescari played a small part in this book and for that I am utterly thankful as I can't stand him!<br/>There's a whole lot of ethics and philosophy in this book too. How much wrong for the right reason is too wrong?

Overall a very enjoyable book

Sometimes the narrator would use inflections or pauses that did not seem to flow with the scene. I did like her use of different accents and voices to differentiate between characters.

Being irritated by the heroine gets tiresome

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Rachel's constant whining and bad decisions make the book more frustrating than enjoyable. I got tired of hearing "It's not fair!", "God save me!" and "I can take care of myself!" Suck it up buttercup. I loved the first three books but this one was hard for me to get into. In saying that, the second half of the book was better than the first half.

What does Marguerite Gavin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Marguerite does a great job of bringing the characters to life and giving them an identity beyond what is written by the author.

These books just keep getting better.

I am listening to the complete "Hollows" series after reading them a few years ago. It's more fun the second time around and would recommend fans of the series to do the same.
