For A Few Demons More
Amazon Blurb -
In bestseller Harrison's fifth demon-kicking extravaganza to feature Rachel Morgan, the first in hardcover (after 2006's A Fistful of Charms), the Cincinnati-based bounty hunter and spell caster still possesses "the focus," a 5,000-year-old demon-crafted Were artifact. With the help of her pixie partner Jenks and Detective Glenn, Rachel must deal with demons, the elf Trent Kalamack and master vampire Piscary, who along with angry Weres, struggle for possession of the artifact. Meanwhile, a serial killer is on the loose and Rachel's alpha werewolf pal, David Hue, becomes the prime suspect of the FIB (aka the human-run Federal Inderland Bureau). Action-packed and full of Rachel's persistent erotic ruminations, this titillating tale includes a shocking finale that will leave fans panting for the next installment in the Hollows series.
I was dreading reading this one in the series knowing what was coming. Suffice it to say I was very sad over it and wonder why just like everyone else who loves this series. Oh well and that's all I say on that. Moving on...
Rachel is trying to figure out who is killing some local weres and how some of them have turned from humans. In this series the author has weres being born that way not being made by a bite or virus. Her pack leader, friend, and insurance adjuster ;), David thinks he's been doing the killing since some where his girlfriends. She realizes it's that darn focus that her ex Nick stole in the last book that's responsible. To get everything under control she thinks giving it to Master vamp Piscary is the answer, and of course all hell is going to break loose with this move. The warring were packs are none to happy about any of this. With Jenks at her side and friend F.I.B detective Glenn, as always Rachel tries to solve all the problems almost at the risk of her own life.
I liked it, though Ivy and Rachel's relationship is driving me batty. That part of the story is what I think held it back from being super. I think even all the characters just wanna hit them over the head with a 2x4 too!! As always those pesky demons keep coming back to bother her, and so does Trent Kalamack. With Ceri to help her, Rachel is lucky to have her as a friend. Her magic is amazingly strong and she has come to help Rachel more than once! Of course I will continue with this series.
