Some wounds take time to heal . . . and some scars never fade.Rachel Morgan, kick-ass witch and bounty hunter, has taken her fair share of hits, and has broken lines she swore she would never cross. But when her lover was murdered, it left a deeper wound than Rachel ever imagined, and now she won't rest until his death is solved . . . and avenged. Whatever the cost.Yet the road to hell is paved with good intentions, and when a new predator moves to the apex of the Inderlander food chain, Rachel's past comes back to haunt her.Literally.
Just in case you have not noticed this is the 7th book in the series. So there WILL BE series SPOILER below.
If it wasn’t for the last quarter of the book it would have gotten a C- rating.
“But he’s Rachel Candy!”
“Five trolls in a dra-a-a-a-ag,’ the four-inch man sang from my shoulder. ‘Four purple condoms, three French ticklers, two horny vamps and a succubus in the snow.”
“…Everyone had to eat, but eating people wasn’t polite.”
I’m so glad that Marguerite Gavin is back as the narrator!!! She is Rachel Morgan. NO ONE can replace her.
What I liked: (SPOILER ahead)
That last part of the book really brought it around for me. After reading For a Few More Demons I was not blown away by Kisten’s dead. But after Rachel relives that night on his boat I got it. It was very sad and sweet at the same time. I never really got Kisten as a character but after finding out he did what he did to save Rachel and Ivy I wish we got a little more time with him. Those last few chapters dealing with the returned memory and how the book ended was the best part.
What I didn’t like:
7 books in and I’m still not an Ivy fan. I’m sick of the push and pull of her and Rachel’s relationship. I just want her to either become undead already or for one of them to move out.
Not enough Al and Trent.
Will I continue this series:
I’m in the middle of it so yeah. Unless the series take a crappy turn I’m sticking with it to the end. In fact I can’t wait to check out the next audio book, Black Magic Sanction from the library.
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).
