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.

First Impression:

Well that was anti-climatic and not the snob fest I was warned it would be.

Favorite Line/Quote:

“I don’t play well with others and I run with loaded guns.”

“That’s my girl… “  “You call me your girl one more time and I’m going to turn your gonads into plums and make jam with them.”

The Narration:

Gavin has earned a place on my favorite narrator list with her work on The Hollows series. She is Rachel Morgan. I’ve already downloaded the next audio from the library but I’m a little worried since it has a different narrator.

What I liked:

I liked that one of the big bads was taken out this time around. Too bad two of them wasn’t. But there has to be a bad guy and if they all were taken out we would just get another one. But if only one could go in this book I’m glad it was the one that did.

I like how the events in For a Few More Demons is building to something more for the series. Rachel and her gang is never boring.

What I didn’t like:

Either get it on with Ivy or leave her alone already. Geez. I’m sick of the push and pull of Rachel and Ivy’s relationship. It’s weird and uncomfortable. They need to hit the sheets or one needs to move out.

Will I continue this series:

Yes. I’m hooked.

Similar Books/Series:

Early Anita Blake books (pre-orgy books).

I coexist with my husband of 15 years, our 11-year-old son and two chilled cats in the Deep South.

After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.

While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).
