Despite dating one vampire and living with another, Rachel Morgan has stayed ahead of trouble until now. A serial killer stalks the Hollows, claims victims across society, and ignites a vicious Inderland gang war. Rachel hides an ancient artifact that could stop the killer or start a battle to the death among supernatural races of Cincinnati. Every action has its price. When the vampire master Piscary is set free and the demonic Algaliarept dares to walk openly under the sun, even Rachel Morgan can’t hide forever.
The demons are back in the fifth book of the series. I love all of them as characters and would prefer if more time was spent with them. This book is a heartbreaker as we lose one of the main characters for good. If only it were Ivy, I can’t stand her; she needs to put her big girl pants on and accept that Rachel doesn’t return her feelings and stop moping around.
It takes a little while for the action to heat up, but boy does it get hot once all the emotional crap is out of the way. The ending is a real tearjerker, but once again I have to say if it wasn’t for Jenks and the demons, I wouldn’t love this series half as much.
