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.
What I thought:
I'm liking this series more and more with each book, but unlike the previous books so far, this put me in a very melancholy mood. It had an underline sadness as they talked about Jenks' life expectancy. I really enjoy this character and I hope to see him in plenty of books.
The story was a good one. I really didn't like Nick after the last book and it turned to hate after this one. But it will be interesting to see what happens with him, if he shows up, in the next books. I thought it was interesting about how different packs were after Rachel to challenge her to get David to play nice with his own kind. I think this should get very interesting later on.
I really am enjoying these books. They are some of the best ones I have read. I think Harrison has created such a great cast of characters that really help bring the story to life instead of words just written on paper.
