There’s no witch in Cincinnati tougher, sexier, or more screwed up than bounty hunter Rachel Morgan, who’s already put her love life and soul in dire jeopardy through her determined efforts to bring criminal night creatures to justice.
Between “runs,” she has her hands full fending off the attentions of her blood-drinking partner, keeping a deadly secret from her backup, and resisting a hot new vamp suitor.
Rachel must also take a stand in the war that’s raging in the city’s underworld, since she helped put away its former vampire kingpin – and made a deal with a powerful demon to do so that could cost her an eternity of pain, torment, and degradation.
And now her dark “master” is coming to collect his due.
This the third book in the Hollows series and you really need to read them in order to keep up with the story. This book is fast-paced full of action and with a widening array of complex characters that help drive the ever-evolving story forward.
I absolutely love the demon world in this series and in this book we meet Newt the only living female demon. The interactions between Rachel and Algaliarept are brilliant, you never know who will be the victor in their regular battles of wit.
This is a series that gets better as we delve deeper into the complexity of its unique setting. Characters are evolving, and relationships change as the story develops. I highly recommend it to lovers of fantasy.
