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.

    Story
    "Plot Armor"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The one thing I would change is the Main character in all of the books. Rachel is a air head that works off her feelings which wouldn't be bad if she knew how to take care of her self. She thinks she is a bad ass but, she is not. The only reason she is not dead is because the stories are about her and she gets plot armor from the writer. Every guy she met she is willing and normally will fall backwards with her legs open. The only good point this series has is the side characters.


    What could Kim Harrison have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Make a stronger Main


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

    All side characters


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No

    "Exceptional! When is Book 10 coming?"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Pale Demon to be better than the print version?

    Not sure, I have thoroughly enjoyed the audio version. Marguerite Gavin brought the unique characteristics to the individual personalities


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Pale Demon?

    Trent and Rachael are getting closer - they would be a good match


    Have you listened to any of Marguerite Gavin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Consistent and imaginative - love hearing her voice in character - It is amazing to hear the different inflections - sometimes I think the voice tracks are slowed down or sped up to make them unique.


    Any additional comments?

    When will Book 10 be out. I can hardly wait.

    "Better than the last book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Pale Demon to be better than the print version?

    Probably not, but certainly more convenient. The narrator took a bit of getting used to as I'd already read in print the earlier book in the series, but once adapted to her characterization (not the voice I'd pictured Jenks as having, but it worked well) it was a pleasurable listen.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It tied up loose ends, Rachel develops in this story instead of spinning her wheels in a repeat of the


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Any additional comments?

    The price was outrageous, 2 credits it is not worthy of, I wouldn't spend that much again on it if I had to do over. I'd buy the book in print instead. That said, this is alot better than I thought it would be as I was getting tired of Rachel et al simply repeating themselves with no character growth. Now I have hope for this series! However, I'll buy the next one in print if the credit cost remains 2 credits.

    "I hope this won't be the last."

    Book 9 in the series has many twists and turns and is sometimes hard to follow, but it is nonetheless satisfying and extremely entertaining for Rachel Marianna Morgan fans out there. She expands her circle of friends, turns former enemies to her cause and ultimately triumphs over all in the end.

    The end came a bit abruptly and had the feeling of the author just needing to tie up loose ends in a hurry, but a few strings were left dangling that can be pulled on for the next book (if there is one).

    "Well worth the credits!"

    I literally could not stop listening to this book. I listened to it in the car, on breaks at work, over lunch and even while folding laundry! Harrison ties up some loose ends with Rachel and Trent, and manages to open up wonderful new possibilities with almost all of the characters.

    I love this series and about 1/2 way through started listening instead of reading them and it enriched an already great series. In Gavin, Harrison has found the melody to her groovy beat.

    Trust me-you want to hear Al say "Rachel Mariana Morgan."

    "Pales in Comparison"

    I looked forward to this book so much that in order to prolong the pleasure I reread the previous book before starting it. Unfortunately it was a disappointment. The only reason this book "went anywhere" was because they were on a road trip and went from Cinci to the West Coast. I read about the idea that MS Harrison had for the road trip theme but it was weak at best. The action seemed sort of random like she had to find something for someone to do at intervals along the way. I did enjoy the softening of Al but Pierce was a total stick in this one - going from a hottie to an incidental character with little chemistry between him and Rachel. And then there is the "new" Trent - who seems a bit nicer and apparently also in love with Rachel. She's a lucky gal - everyone (Al, Pierce, Trent, and Ivy) seems to be in love with her but they all wind up disappointing her in one way or the other. You would think after this many books there would be SOMEONE she could count on who won't kill, use, eat her? And her "poor me I'm a victim" attitude is REALLY starting to get OLD!

    Let her glory in what she is - live half in both dimensions and kick butt in both - it's about freakin' time!
