Rachel Morgan, sexy witch, independent bounty hunter, prowls the downtown Cincinnati for criminal creatures of the night. She can handle leather-clad vamps and a cunning demon or two. But a serial killer who feeds on the experts in the most dangerous kind of black magic is an ancient, implacable evil that threatens her very soul.
This is the second book in The Hollows series, they need to be read in order. Several months have passed since the first book ended, and this book focuses on driving the plot forward, more character evolvement than world-building. Once again, an artful combination of humour, action, and drama.
I’m not a huge fan of Ivy, but she is necessary to the overall series, so I just have to put up with her. I am a big fan of the demon plot which gets better with each book. Once again Jenks steals the show. he is fantastic.
