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.

    "Not worth 2 credits. Overpriced"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. I would tell them they could skip this installment. No character growth.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    So disappointing. This book just was not interesting.


    What does Marguerite Gavin bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Marguerite is an excellent narrator.

    "I loved this whole series!"

    I enjoyed this series so much that I have listened to it twice. I did not enjoy book six as much as the others as I had become accustomed to Marguerite Gavin as narrator (who does a sterling job!) and I just could not get used to the change in narrator. I found the incorrect pronunciation of names and places distracting but I stuck with it as I wanted to continue on with the series. Well worth a listen!

    "What's up with Rachel?"
    If you could sum up A Perfect Blood in three words, what would they be?

    Love this series, but this book was so out of character for Rachel. Who was this self doubting some what wishy washy woman. I hope this is the last we see of her. Glad to see Trent step up more and Ivy step back, but the Pixie and Al have got to stay, too funny most of the time. Great Narration, you will still want to hear this book even though not her best.


    What about Marguerite Gavin’s performance did you like?

    She is so GOOD! Love to listen to anything she reads.

    "Book 10 is still great! Waiting for book 11 ):"
    What made the experience of listening to A Perfect Blood the most enjoyable?

    Kim Harrison continues a good story with action and three different segments to the story line. I love the reader, she makes the character's in the stories believable. Kim Harrison unlike many other supernatural stories does not turn to sex to sell her books.


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

    Marguerite Gavin performs all the characters well. She is one of the best readers out there.

    "Disappointing, not worth 2 credits"

    First I should say I'm barely holding on in this series. I do not like the POV character, I do not like Ivy, however, I love the world building and basically all the other characters. I just wish we'd see more growth in Rachel. She's still pretty whiny and I get very tired of her constant lust thoughts about every character male or female during pretty intense action scenes, or just anytime.

    Second, I really don't like the reader. She surges the accents in a sentence in a way that really bothers me. The only character I feel that style works with is Jenks. I have the last few of these books as audio only because I can manage thru the reader and I prefer audio format over reading as I can continue to do other things while listening.

    Thirdly, this is NOT worth 2 credits. I get WELL over 150 audios a year minimum using the Platinum Annual 24 packs of credits at a time {which totally rocks!} so 2 credits is less than buying outright with the audible member discount. This is the first time I can say I regret the credits I used. I can see a LONG audio with a super reader being two credits {I have no problems with Songs of Fire and Ice being two credits} but not a mediocre reader and a 16 hour book. I only took the chance cause I actually LIKE the last book in this series, Pale Demon and had hopes this one would be as good. I would also like to say I know the two credit deal is the publisher NOT Audible.

    Basically, I hope this series wraps up soon, get some character growth really happening. I will not buy the next book in audio with this reader for 2 credits no matter how much everyone says it's great.

    "Another great addition to the series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Perfect Blood to be better than the print version?

    Yes, some narrators that just give a book another dimension


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

    There are some many different aspects to this story line it is difficult to compare it has it all, witches, vampires, fairies and demons.


    What about Marguerite Gavin’s performance did you like?

    Bringing the characters to life for me


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

    On Hallowed ground comes love, friendship and survival

    "A bit disappointing both in performance and story"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Rachel appeared to lose focus and ability, letting mere humans kick her butt, and not paying attention to the advice of her friends. A lot of the writing was rehashing and reiterating (space fill?). Still, I love Rachel, Ivy, Jenks, David, etc, and will buy all the series as they come out and anxiously await the next. Maybe Rachel will grow up soon.


    What aspect of Marguerite Gavin???s performance would you have changed?

    I'm a big fan of Ms. Gavin but she seemed to not pay attention to where the phrase should end and starting slurring half to 2/3 the way through. It appeared that she'd read a sentence and then stop at the end of the line, even though the sentence didn't end for another 3-4 words. Still, I can't stand anyone other than Ms. Gavin to voice Jenks or Ivy.


    Do you think A Perfect Blood needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    There has to be more because not much happened here.

    "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!

    "Awesome as always"
    What made the experience of listening to A Perfect Blood the most enjoyable?

    I love the depth to all of Kim Harrisons characters. The Narrator did a great job. I had a hard time putting it down.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I hated Trent till this book, now he is finally turning around and I can't wait to see what happens with him in book 11.


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

    The characters come alive as she acts them out. She did an awesome job:-)


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I enjoyed the back in forth dialoge between Racheal and Trent.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope book 11 comes out soon

    "Ignore bad reviews, it's a solid Hollows book"

    I held off on reading or listening to it with all the reviews... Now that i've listened,I thoroughly enjoyed it. It reminded me of some of the older ones, more runs, more fun, and yes less Al, but for a good reason. Classic Rachel making dumb decisions, but not only do we expect it, but so do her friends and they rally around her and do their best support her. It's not just her being immature, but a true character flaw that she and all around her accept and work around. I just love these books. Dont know how I could have doubted it.

    Is it worth 2 credits? That's hard to swallow, I usually read them for this reason, but had some extra credits to burn. Its the first time ive listened a book in this series. It's hard to come in after 9 books and years of my own ideas. In my head, Jenks is so much more animated, not just a guy, and Trent so much more smooth. All the narrators exclamations for every character are delivered in the exact same way that I can't figure out how to describe, but it's not a way I've ever heard a person mad, hurt, scared or trying to get attention yell. So the narration was distracting me, but again, I know that mostly because I had different ideas. I wouldn't even say it was bad or negative.

    However consumed, I think it's a good addition to the Hollows series.
