Publisher's Summary

Condemned and shunned for black magic, Rachel Morgan has three days to get to the annual witches' conference and clear her name, or be trapped in the demonic ever-after - forever after.

But a witch, an elf, a living vampire, anda pixy in one car, going across the country? Talk about a recipe for certain disaster, even without being the targets for assassination.

For after centuries of torment, a fearsome demon walks in the sunlight, freed at last to slay the innocent and devour their souls. But his ultimate goal is Rachel Morgan, and in the fight for survival that follows, even embracing her own demonic nature may not be enough to save her.

while needed one of the least enjoyable.

I didn't enjoy this book as much as the other books in the series. The villain is a paper cut out of a cartoon evil villian. Sadly it was needed for the overall story, to continue the rest of the series the main character did need to go through most of it but it seemed rushed and forced by the author. The narrator is great, editing as well. I just wish that the author hadn't gone the way she had.

One of my favorite authors

Rachel Mariana Morgan is one of my favorite urban fantasy protagonists. This installment is just as good as the rest so far.

Awesome story!

Any additional comments?

Very good series and book! Plenty of witchy and vampire action. Character development and world building is phenomenal. The narrator did a great job too!

Enjoy the story, and love the series!

Love this author, and couldn't imagine anyone better than Marguerite Gavin to give voice to the story. The redundancy of some of the phrases used are wearing on me though. "Peter Pan pose" is overused. Tink references too, but I can give it a pass I suppose.

This series just gets better and better!

I love this series. I first found it when I came across White Witch Black Curse in a book store. Since that's the middle of the series, I had to go back to the beginning, to Dead Witch Walking. That's when I found them on Audible. This series is a terrific read, but with Margarite Gavin's interpretations, they are even better as audio books. Pale Demon is no exception. It an epic tale well told...the story of major turning points in the lives of several characters. These events shift the Hollows world, but they also bring a sense of satisfaction to the reader/listener. These shifts feel like a payoff of the best kind because you know the story isn't over.

Another good Hollows book

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I think that the pacing was a little staggered. It felt as though the calm points in between to allow the reader to "catch their breath" weren't really present.

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

The story moved the Day-Walker aspect forward very well.
I would have liked some more time spent on the end of the story wrap-up. I understand the need to create and foster a sense of need for the next book, but some of the elements felt forced. Fairy/Pixie anxiety at the end of the book, Ivy leaving and then not leaving, Trent and that entire sub-plot.

Which scene was your favorite?

The making of the memory in the Ever-After. I think that the descriptive process and the language used really allowed me to feel a part of that scene.

Could you see Pale Demon being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Not this book by itself. The series, with another set of plots that maybe were in between the books, yes.
