The evil night things that prowl Cincinnati despise witch and bounty hunter Rachel Morgan. Her new reputation for the dark arts is turning human and undead heads alike with the intent to possess, bed, and kill her — not necessarily in that order.
Now a mortal lover who abandoned Rachel has returned, haunted by his secret past. And there are those who covet what Nick possesses — savage beasts willing to destroy the Hollows and everyone in it if necessary.
Forced to keep a low profile or eternally suffer the wrath of a vengeful demon, Rachel must nevertheless act quickly. For the pack is gathering for the first time in millennia to ravage and to rule. And suddenly, more than Rachel’s soul is at stake.
This book was heavy on the characters I hate, Ivy & Nick, and I barely tolerate Kisten. Its very light on my favourites, Trent and the Demons but hey at least Jenks was still there. The werewolves were a different group to the usual that Rachel finds herself dealing with. It was a fresh change of pace, but I really want the demons back.
I hate Ivy, she just gets under my skin, and this book is heavy on the Ivy/Rachel situation. I would love if she just disappears altogether, but that’s not going to happen. Unfortunately.
This is a series full of plot twists, action-packed with hints of romance. The world evolves and grows and keeps getting better. I highly recommend it to lovers of urban fantasy, paranormal.
