Review: A Perfect Blood (The Hollows #10) – Kim Harrison

Review: A Perfect Blood (The Hollows #10) – Kim Harrison

A Perfect Blood is as close to a perfect story as any I have read in The Hollows series (so far – yes, I need to say so far, because this series keeps getting better and better). The story starts with Rachel being called in to a crime scene – which kind of surprises her, as both the FIB and the IS usually don’t really want her around until the dusters have finished getting all the evidence they possible can. As she arrives, a very disgruntled Trent is leaving – and he tells her to please answer her phone when he calls her. What she sees at the crime scene had me thinking of this painting by Salvador Dali – […]

Review: Pale Demon (The Hollows #9) – Kim Harrison

Review: Pale Demon (The Hollows #9) – Kim Harrison

Pale Demon brings out the best in all the characters I now know and love! In order to save herself, Rachel needs to be at the annual witches conference to try and clear her name. But the witches will do anything they can to make sure she won’t make it in time. At the same time, Trent needs her help for something he won’t really tell her about – he only lets her know he has to be in Seattly before a certain time, and he wants her to ensure his safety while traveling. Because it’s impossible for Rachel to travel by plane, a road-trip becomes the only option – with Jenks, Ivy and Trent driving with her in her […]

Review: Black Magic Sanction (The Hollows #8) – Kim Harrison

Review: Black Magic Sanction (The Hollows #8) – Kim Harrison

Black Magic Sanction is yet another wild ride for Rachel and her friends, and it sure is for the readers as well! It’s impossible not to feel for Rachel in this installment, because so many things happen to her, and she just can’t catch a break. And there are some tough things she needs to come to term with. Both when it comes to herself and the society of witches known as the coven. My review of Black Magic Sanction is pretty much spoiler free, but there are spoilers from prior books, it’s impossible to review the 8th book in a series without talking about some of the things that have happened before, especially in a series that has some […]

Review: White Witch Black Curse (The Hollows #7) – Kim Harrison

Review: White Witch Black Curse (The Hollows #7) – Kim Harrison

White Witch Black Curse – the title really does say it all! Rachel is doing all the wrong things for all the right reasons, and I love how she is justifying her actions to herself. I also think that the more she does things she thought she’d never do, the stronger her moral compass gets, and that’s part of the awesomeness that is The Hollows! There also is a new supernatural creature in White Witch Black Curse, and the way she is weaved into the story and the plot of this installment is really good! On top of that, she fits into the overall plot as well, and I realized this because of something that happened in Dead Witch Walking. […]

Review: The Outlaw Demon Wails (The Hollows #6) – Kim Harrison

Review: The Outlaw Demon Wails (The Hollows #6) – Kim Harrison

The Outlaw Demon Wails completely blew my socks off! So many incredible twists and turns, so many new secrets unveiled, so much new information about Rachel and her family. I am almost reeling after finishing this read. My review of The Outlaw Demon Wails is spoiler-free, but since it is about the sixth book in the series, there will  be spoilers from the prior books, so if you haven’t read the five first books, please proceed reading knowing that! I love how much Rachel grew in The Outlaw Demon Wails, finally, she is starting to think a little before she acts – even if that is still a little difficult for her. Dealing with the aftermath of Kist’s death is […]

Review: For a Few Demons More (The Hollows #5) – Kim Harrison

Review: For a Few Demons More (The Hollows #5) – Kim Harrison

For a Few Demons More starts with Rachel waking up – but not really waking up! She can feel that someone else is inside her head, and she has no idea what to do to get rid of the other person – who has nothing to do in there anyway.  As Rachel manages to force that someone out of her head, Ceri arrives to help her, but is terrified when she sees who is there. This frantic mood continues through most of For a Few Demons More, and little plot-points from prior books are resolved, while seeds for new plots are expertly planted – almost out of sight from the reader. Rachel has finally decided to introduce Trent to Ceri, […]

Review: A Fistful of Charms (The Hollows #4) – Kim Harrison

Review: A Fistful of Charms (The Hollows #4) – Kim Harrison

A Fistful of Charms is filled with action, just as the prior books in the Hollows series are. Most of the action happens away from Cincy, though, and it was nice to have a change of scenery. When Jenks shows up in panic, because Jax is missing after leaving with Nick, Rachel puts things in motion to save both of them – even if Nick never called her back or truly broke up with her. There are even more sub-plots in A Fistful of Charms than before! Rachel is challenged as David’s alpha, she uses more magic to transform people, but this time she does it without her earth-charms to make things happen faster – and thus, she has to […]

Review: Every Which Way but Dead (The Hollows #3) – Kim Harrison

Review: Every Which Way but Dead (The Hollows #3) – Kim Harrison

Every Which Way but Dead is an apt title for this book, because Rachel will do almost anything in order to make sure she’ll be alive when all is said and done. She has some very big players to go up against now, though, and she especially has to be very cunning in her dealings with her favorite demon, Al. My review of Every Which Way but Dead is spoiler free, but there might be spoilers from the first two books in it. Especially because the plot is moving forward pretty quickly, and I want to make sure I touch on all the things that were important to me while reading. So if you’re even later than me to The […]

Review: The Good, the Bad and the Undead (The Hollows #2) – Kim Harrison

Review: The Good, the Bad and the Undead (The Hollows #2) – Kim Harrison

The Good the Bad and the Undead starts in the middle of a run that doesn’t go exactly as planned, and it kind of sets the mood for the whole story. Rachel isn’t exactly a planner anyway, but the things she tries to plan do not happen accordingly. She meets Piscary for the the first time, and is amazed that this is the infamous vampire who rules Cincy along with Kalamack and some other shady men of the underground. While having dinner there, Glenn realizes he has an acquired taste for tomatoes, and the ensuing smuggling of ketchup and other things made of the fruit is hilarious. As several ley-line witches go missing or are killed, Rachel is certain Trent […]

Review: Dead Witch Walking (The Hollows #1) – Kim Harrison

Review: Dead Witch Walking (The Hollows #1) – Kim Harrison

Dead Witch Walking has been on my kindle for a very long time! I went to check, and I actually bought it in September 2010, so yeah, Rachel Morgan and her friends have been very patient waiting for me to really notice them. Lately, three of my very good blogging friends have been talking about The Hollows series and telling me how good it is, so I decided I should at least start reading Dead Witch Walking and see if I agreed with them or not. I was amazed at how action packed Dead Witch Walking was, with a big cast of characters – both main and secondary. The readers quickly realize that Rachel is a strong character, both physically […]
