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.

Review: Excellent!

I can’t decide which book in the series I liked the most! Great action, great scenes, great thinking by the main character… I can’t ask for better. Rachel and her friends find a lot more trouble in this novel than the previous four, but this one was the best. Rachel endures more than she ever had in this novel, and she and her circle of friends have no choice but to deal with each catastrophe as they show up. The climax is gripping, the ending sad, but definitely not finished. Rachel has this way of thinking, of acting, of reacting, that is truly unique – a character all her own. Sure you can compare her to a mix of characters (Anita Blake series by Laurell K. Hamilton and Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich), but that mix of characters is what makes Rachel unique. I have yet to read a character that can measure up to her. She swears that she does her best thinking and problem solving when in a panick. She is a ‘fly-by-the-seat-of-her-pants’ kinda gal and I believe it! In every novel, she’s proven that, but in this one, it was by far the best. Rachel faces each problem head-on, unlike her business partner, Ivy, who plans everything with each contingency in mind.

‘Ooooo, Doogie’, I can’t wait for the next novel!
