some wounds take time to heal…and some scars never fade.
Rachel Morgan, kick-ass witch and bounty hunter, has taken her fair share of hits, and has broken lines she swore she would never cross. But when her lover was murdered, it left a deeper wound than Rachel ever imagined, and now she won’t rest until his death is solved…and avenged. Whatever the cost.
Yet the road to hell is paved with good intentions, and when a new predator moves to the apex of the Inderland food chain, Rachel’s past comes back to haunt her.
This book features a Banshee and she doesn’t have the characteristics of a banshee as we would know it. She is more of a cross between a succubus and a vampire, sucking the life out of her lovers. The Banshee is a clairvoyant type being, in my opinion, a harbinger of death, not its cause, and I wasn’t a fan of the interpretation.
The whodunnit mystery of the last few book is finally solved in this book. The murderer is a surprise, and I was glad to see it finally resolved. While there some niggly issues with the books in the series, I keep giving it a five-star rating because it kept me hooked and I couldn’t wait to see what happens next. A must for a series. Even though it’s gone on for seven books, I’m still interested.
