Genre: Urban Fantasy
My Rating: 4 Stars!
Despite dating one vampire and living with another, Rachel Morgan has stayed ahead of trouble until now. A serial killer stalks the Hollows, claims victims across society, and ignites a vicious Inderland gang war. Rachel hides an ancient artifact that could stop the killer or start a battle to the death among supernatural races of Cincinnati. Every action has its price. When the vampire master Piscary is set free and the demonic Algaliarept dares to walk openly under the sun, even Rachel Morgan can't hide forever.
It was so darn good to get back into this world. Even though I knew I loved this series, it was a huge reminder just why I love it.
Once again Rachel has gotten herself into a sticky situation. One full of danger, lies, and oh yeah, demons. The stakes are getting higher and not everyone is going to come out of this one alive.
There were so many feels with this, I don't even know where to begin. So much was revealed and said, and done.
I can't even begin to express how much I love this series. It took me awhile to get into it, in fact three whole books before I completely felt the love but once that love blossomed, it really bloomed.
I've seen others say this book was a turning point to the series and I absolutely agree. With all the things that happened it was impossible for anyone to come out of it the same. To be unchanged in some way or another.
I don't want to spoil anything but I will say this, these friends, their bond and love for one another, is what makes this series so fantastic. I've always said that sometimes the best family are those we pick to be a part of instead of those we are sometimes born into and that is the case with Ivy, Jenks,and Rachel. There are so many good characters in this, great characters and of course even and some it's impossible not to hate with a fiery passion and I couldn't help but love Harrison for her ability to do that.
If you are hesitating to try this series, don't. It's fantastic and even though like me, it might take you a bit to warm up to it, take that chance anyways, I don't think you'll regret it.
