Despite dating one vampire and living with another, Rachel Morgan has always managed to stay just ahead of trouble…until now.
A fiendish serial killer stalks the Hollows, and no one living in or around Cincinnati – human, inhuman, or undead – is safe.
An ancient artifact may be the key to stopping the murderer – a mysterious relic that is now in the hands of Rachel Morgan, fearless independent bounty hunter and reckless witch. But revealing it could ignite a battle to the death among the vast and varied local supernatural races.
Rachel’s been lucky so far. But even she can’t hide from catastrophe forever.
I really enjoyed this installment in the series! I know that I am really late to the party with this series but I am having fun with it. I really don’t know why I have been waiting so long to start the next book after finishing one. I have grown to really like the characters and was quickly hooked by this story once I started listening. I had a really good time with the series.
Rachel is asked to help with an investigation involving murdered werewolves. As she starts to piece things together, she finds that what is actually happening is even scarier than she could have imagined. To make matters worse, Trent is getting married and wants Rachel to work as security, but as part of the wedding party. There also seems to be a bit of a demon problem and Rachel’s roommate appears to be mad at her. Rachel has her work cut out for her in this book.
This book was really exciting. There were a lot of things going on but it never felt like too much. I really wanted to see things go well in Rachel’s personal life and I was totally invested in figuring out what was going on with the mystery. There were some really high points in the story but there were a few others that were heartbreaking. I love how much the characters have grown and evolved during the series and I really wanted to see things work out for them.
Marguerite Gavin does a fantastic job with the narration. I do find her to read at a faster pace than most narrators so I usually slow down the book a bit. Yes, I know that a lot of people speed up books while I am over here slowing things down but it is what it is. I love all of the voices that she uses for the characters and I thought that she added a lot of emotion into the reading. I think that her narration added to my overall enjoyment of the story.
I would recommend this series to others. I do think that this is a series that needs to be read in order since each book builds on the previous installments. I had a great time with this story and cannot wait to see what is in store for Rachel in the next installment.
About the Author
When not haunting the stores for good music, good chocolate, and leather boots, Kim Harrison is hard at work on the next novel of the Hollows. Born and raised in Tornado Alley, she now resides in the more sultry South Carolina.
This sounds like such a fun, exciting series! I sometimes slow down my audiobooks, too. It feels more natural that way. I don't get how people listen to them so sped up. I feel you you miss all the inflection and nuance that way.
I've only read a few f her books. I really need to read more because this sounds really good.
I enjoy this series. I did a Read-along in 2014. It's loved by many. I'm enjoying the new updates to the series.

I've never read anything by Kim Harrison. I think I have a couple of books somewhere, but have never picked it up. Though, this isn't typically a genre I venture in so there's that.
Was this the series I tried or not? Omg, I do not know. Anyway, yay good
