1225621._SY475_When you dance with demons, you lay your soul on the line…

In the Hollows, where the natural and the supernatural co-exist – not always peacefully – desperate times often call for unorthodox measures. But bounty hunter-witch Rachel Morgan did the absolutely unthinkable to save the lives of her friends: she willingly trafficked in forbidden demon magic. And now her sins have come home to haunt her.

As Rachel hunts for the truth behind a terrifying murder, the discovery of a shocking family secret is about to throw her entire life into question. And the long-lost ancient knowledge she seeks resides in the demonic ever-after. But there are some lines that should never be crossed–like the one Rachel Morgan’s stepping over…again!

What a whirlwind this story was! There was actually quite a bit that happens in this 6th (!!) instalment in The Hollows series. What I like about Harrison’s writing, is that no matter how much time I take from reading between this book series is that when I start reading another Hollows book, I always feel welcome. I start reading a Rachel Morgan story and I’m instantly transported into her life! Continue reading

Library Reads #47

library readsHELLO FRIENDS! TODAY I’M TALKING A LITTLE ABOUT THE BOOKS I’VE BORROWED RECENTLY FROM THE LIBRARY.

Library Reads: I’m a huge fan of libraries. I tend to visit the library quite often, and I even come across great finds. These Library Reads posts are where I write a tad about the books I’ve borrowed.

In this post I’ll write about what books I borrowed, and what I think of the books before I actually start reading them. Whether what I say is a sentence or a few sentences long, here I catalogue the books I’ve borrowed. — From doing these posts I hope to spread a little love for libraries and the stories they can give us.

HERE ARE THE BOOKS I BORROWED FROM THE LIBRARY RECENTLY!

For a Few Demons More, by Kim Harrison | Book Review **EDITED**

Hello hello, friends! Today’s post is going to be my book review of

For a Few Demons More, by Kim Harrison.

For a Few Demons More is the 5th book in The Hollows series. 

pink leaf divider

30259Despite dating one vampire and living with another, Rachel Morgan has stayed ahead of trouble until now. A serial killer stalks the Hollows, claims victims across society, and ignites a vicious Inderland gang war. Rachel hides an ancient artifact that could stop the killer or start a battle to the death among supernatural races of Cincinnati. Every action has its price. When the vampire master Piscary is set free and the demonic Algaliarept dares to walk openly under the sun, even Rachel Morgan can’t hide forever.

So, For a Few Demons more, the story ended up being a white-knuckle read. I literally could not have stopped reading this 5th book if I had wanted to. From the start of For a Few Demons more the story was go-go-go. There wasn’t really ever a break, and if there were, the break that Rachel got was maybe an hour or so.

The most happened within For a Few Demons more, and I’m kinda mad that I didn’t write down any notes. But I know that there was quite the roller coaster–no, not even a roller coaster of emotions. It was more like an emotional hurricane.

Just know that I really enjoyed reading For a Few Demons more, and that I can still feel the residual anger and grief that I had towards the end of this 5th Hollows book.

I give For a Few Demons More, 4.5 stars.

Have you read For a Few Demons More?
