Publisher's Summary

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.

So not worth 2 Credits

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

NO. I have read/listened to this series from the beginning and have not been disappointed until this book. The author was uninspired and the story just lays there. This is a great dissapointment. Why Audible thinks this book is worth 2 CREDITS. Really? Marguerite Gavin is like always an amazing narrator.

What was most disappointing about Kim Harrison’s story?

boring. nothing new.

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

She gives each character the depth of personality i think the author intended.

Could you see A Perfect Blood being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

no. The series maybe, not this particular book.

Any additional comments?

Why did you kill off Kisten and then give her poor replacemnts?

Finally!!

Where does A Perfect Blood rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I would have to say it is one of the better stories I have heard in a while

What other book might you compare A Perfect Blood to and why?

I would say I would compare this book to Dreamfever by Karen Marie Moning. Because this is when the female lead, really embraces who she is

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

Her voice really adds to the characters. It makes the vision of this world easier for me

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

I'm Baaaaaaaack

I love this series!

This is one of my favorite series. I am enjoying the whole Rachel as a demon and what that's going to mean going forward for not only Rachel, but for the world as a whole. I like the dynamic of Rachel and Trent and the whole will they or won't they thing. I am also intrigued by what may happen with Al and Lucy and Rae. Marguerite Gavin is great as narrator.

It keeps getting better

Where does A Perfect Blood rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book is toward the top. After listening to the previous books, I like how the characters are evolving.

What did you like best about this story?

It had everything I like in a book. I laughed at parts, I cried at parts. There was intense action. Character development. It made me not only like the book but appreciate the series more and look forward to where it was going.

In addition, Kim Harrison is very good about making you feel present in the scene and like you are having a conversation with the characters. The narration between dialog is exciting and full of personality.

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

She's an excellent narrator. I like the variance in voices. Plus she acts them out and does an excellent job putting emotion and action in the whole story, not just dialog. I think you wouldn't get as much of Rachel's personality by just reading it. I can't put my finger on it, but I'm glad I listened to it rather than read it.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

oh yeah. I listen in the car on my commute and was actually hoping for traffic.

Any additional comments?

The only down side is I wish there was less

Keeps Getting Better

If you could sum up A Perfect Blood in three words, what would they be?

Extraordinary, Simply, Extraordinary

Who was your favorite character and why?

I am falling in love with Trent. You can't put him in a box. He can be coldly homicidal, then turn around and be protective of those he loves. It looks like Kim Harrison is writing towards a romantic relationship between Trent and Rachel.

Which character – as performed by Marguerite Gavin – was your favorite?

Rachel

Any additional comments?

Often, these paranormal fantasy books become bland as they get longer. Kim keeps finding ways to keep the series new and enjoyable. I look forward to book 11.

A Great Trip Back to The Hollows

Where does A Perfect Blood rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

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.

What did you like best about this story?

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.

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

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 am not sure what happened?

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!

disappointing

Is there anything you would change about this book?

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.

Was expecting bettter.

Would have been better if Rachel, being demon, kicked more butt, rather than her butt getting kicked. Would like to see her a bit more bad ass. I still enjoyed the book and love all the characters, Looking forward to the next one, hopefully it will come out soon.
