‘Rachel Morgan’ series Book #3

Rachel Morgan’s back! Bestselling author Kim Harrison returns with a new supernatural adventure that fans of Laurell K. Hamilton and Charlaine Harris won’t want to miss.

Some days, you just can’t win. Witch and former bounty hunter Rachel Morgan’s managed to escape her corrupt company, survive living with a vampire, start her own runner service, and face down a vampire master.

But her vampire roommate Ivy is off the wagon, her human boyfriend Nick is out of town indefinitely and doesn’t sound like he’s coming back while the far-too-seductive vampire Kisten is looking way too tempting, and there’s a turf war erupting in Cincinnati’s underworld.

And there’s a greater evil still. To put the vampire master behind bars and save her family, Rachel made a desperate bargain and now there’s hell to pay—literally. For if Rachel cannot stop him, the archdemon Algaliarept will pull her into the sorcerous ever-after to forfeit her soul as his slave. Forever.

Review: Can’t ask for better!

I swear, this is one of the best series’ I’ve read. Plenty of action, a little love, and a total mix of different and complex characters, included with a plot well written and twists, another excellent novel.

Rachel is as she always is, and tries to do her best, even when she doesn’t know what or how. Nick lost something good, Kisten found something right, and Big Al gets what he deserves. I think, or hope, that Ivy will finally come to understand that her partnership with Rachel is purely platonic. I hope that Kisten can finally break some of Rachel’s shell, and I hope she can patch things up with Jenks. Rachel learns more and more as the series goes on, and she’s definitely becoming more proficient in her field.

The way Harrison writes her novels, you’re sucked in with the first sentence and sigh with the ending of the last sentence, then jump up for the next book. I can’t keep my hands off. Some refer the series as a cross between Stephanie Plum and Anita Blake. It’s the best example I read, and the best that describes it. I can’t get enough of Rachel and her crew, and I truly hope that this series will be around for years.
