Genre: Urban Fantasy
My Rating: 4.5 Stars!
The evil night things that prowl Cincinnati despise witch and bounty hunter Rachel Morgan. Her new reputation for the dark arts is turning human and undead heads alike with the intent to possess, bed, and kill her -- not necessarily in that order.
Now a mortal lover who abandoned Rachel has returned, haunted by his secret past. And there are those who covet what Nick possesses -- savage beasts willing to destroy the Hollows and everyone in it if necessary.
Forced to keep a low profile or eternally suffer the wrath of a vengeful demon, Rachel must nevertheless act quickly. For the pack is gathering for the first time in millennia to ravage and to rule. And suddenly more than Rachel's soul is at stake.
It's funny how a series can sneak up on you and take you by surprise. How it can worm it's way into your thoughts and you find yourself thinking about it at odd times throughout the day until you can get back to where you left off last and devour it some more.
I think this series has done that to me, wormed it's way into my thoughts and made me completely addicted to it.
I just love all the characters and even though Rachel can be trying at times with all the danger she knowingly puts herself into, I still can't resist the heart of gold she has that makes her do it. She really is like a moth to a flame. If there is danger, she will be there starring it in the face and trying to figure out how she can piss it off more.
But again, it just works for this series and makes it all the more appealing. And umm, hello hot big Jenks! The very fact that Rachel had to keep reminding herself that he was a married man with fifty-four kids seriously made me smile every single time. I have always loved Jenks but he really stood out and shined in this and it was so fun to let him have his bold brave moments and really “see” him for maybe the first time.
This is such a fun series. It has so many elements that make a series great and really make it stand out. From lovable characters that you can't get enough of (even the ones that are suppose to be bad), to the sometimes non stop action, danger, mystery, and a hot romance that doesn't overwhelm the story to the humor that fills the pages and adds that lighter touch when needed,this really is a series that is worth the time to read and enjoy.
