Series: The Hollows Series Book #14

Supernatural superhero Rachel Morgan must counter a strange magic that could spell civil war for the Hollows in this sexy and bewitching urban fantasy adventure in acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison’s Hollows series. Witch and day-walking demon Rachel Morgan has managed to save the demonic ever after from shrinking, but at a high cost. Now, strange magic is attacking Cincinnati and the Hollows, causing spells to backfire or go horribly wrong, and the truce between the races, between Inderlander and human, is shattering. Rachel must stop this dark necromancy before the undead vampire masters who keep the rest of the undead under control are lost and all-out supernatural war breaks out. Rachel knows of only weapon to ensure the peace: ancient elven wild magic, which carries its own perils. And no one know better than Rachel that no good deed goes unpunished . . .
Review: This is the book I have been waiting for! For those of you who follow this series, you are already well aware of the sparks between itchy-witch Rachel Morgan and elven prince Trent. While we have been tortured through numerous books on the yay-nay of a possible romance between these two, we actually get a book focused mostly on those feelings and desires – and I was in seventh heaven. If you had asked me in book one, I would have said I didn’t see them together, but which each passing book I began rooting more and more for them! In this one, they finally start really facing their feelings for each other – and realizing what lengths would be required of each for them to actually make it work. And I relished every minute of it!
Of course, a Hollows book wouldn’t be the same without the requisite cast of characters – Ivy, Jenks, Biss, etc. – and the gang is certainly all here in this one. Not to mention all of Rachel’s antics and luck! You don’t want to miss the wild roller coaster ride that is a Rachel Morgan book – whether your an old fan or a new one. Fans will love, love, LOVE this installment! And if your new to her? I definitely recommend this series – it is one of my absolute favorites! You definitely want to read it from the very beginning, but trust me – it’s well worth it!
