Length: 423 pages

My Rating: 5 stars 

Blurb:

Witch and day-walking demon Rachel Morgan has managed to save the demonic ever after from shrinking, but at a high cost. Now strange magic is attacking Cincinnati and the Hollows, causing spells to backfire or go horribly wrong, and the truce between the races, between Inderlander and human, is shattering.

Rachel must stop the occurrences before the undead vampire masters who keep the rest of the undead under control are lost, and it becomes all-out supernatural war. However, the only way to do so is through the ancient elven wild magic, which carries its own perils.

My Review:

This is the penultimate book in the series. Each book has reminded me why I love this series so much. Well, it’s official Trent and Rachel are a thing. Not my favourite pairing, I was a Rachel/Al fan. With the evolution of their relationship, the series is very much elf centred now. The goddess and mystics were intriguing and creatively done.

Rachel seems to still be struggling with self-doubt and guilt, which is not what I want in a heroine. She’s not the kick-ass fighter she was. My only hope is that Ms Harrisson is laying the groundwork for an epic finale.
