Book Review: Pale Demon

Pale Demon (The Hollows, Book 9)
Product Description:

Banned from the flight lists, Rachel teams up with tycoon Trent Kalamack, headed for the West Coast for his own mysterious business. Can a witch, an elf, a living vampire, and a pixy in one car survive for over 2,300 miles?
And that’s not counting the assassin on their tail.


Wow!    Kim Harrison really outdid herself with this installment.  The Great American Road Trip combined with loads of action, assassination attempts and bonding, not to mention Jenks’ brand of humor and swearing.  As usual, Rachel faces a set of unusual circumstances that would make a lesser woman shake in her leather boots and faces them head-on. 

Trent, Al, Ivy and Jenks all have a good amount of page time as well as fantastic character development.  Trent’s elf quest is an unexpected plot turn (didn’t see that one coming!) as well.  Rachel learns quite a lot about trust in this installment as well as some very important lessons about herself.

The bad guy, Ku’Sox, is a day-walking demon who wreaks havoc everywhere he goes.  Hold onto your seat as you read the book because it’s a wild, breathtaking ride you won’t want to end.  I highly recommend it for all Hollows fans and will be waiting very impatiently for the next Rachel adventure. 

If you have never heard of Rachel Morgan or the Hollows, there’s too much backstory for you to start with this book.  Pick up Dead Witch Walking (The Hollows, Book 1), and read all about the adventures of Rachel, Ivy, Jenks and the rest of the crew, making sure to have the next one in the series lined up and ready to go as you complete each one.

Sensuality:  Several kisses and some lustful thoughts but no sex.

Rating: 5 stars
