Rachel Morgan's back, and in more trouble than ever! Fans of Laurell K. Hamilton and other vampire novels won't want to miss the second novel in Kim Harrison's addicting--and already bestselling--supernatural series.



Former-bounty-hunter Rachel Morgan has it pretty good. She s left the corrupt Inderland Runner Service and started her own independent service. She's survived werewolves, shape-changing demons, bad-hair days, and sharing a church with her vampire roommate Ivy. She even has a cute (if human) boyfriend-what more could a witch want?


But living with a reformed vampire isn't all it's cracked up to be, particularly when your roommate's very bad ex-boyfriend wants her back, and wouldn t mind you in the process. And especially when he's six feet of sheer supernatural seduction, and you've got a demon mark that makes vampires literally hotter than hell....


To save herself and Ivy, Rachel must confront the vampire master-and the dark secrets she's hidden even from herself.
 
BOOK REVIEW:



Jenks and Rachel are back as quite the team. Jenks is a great sidekick character. I really like the little fellow, he has a lot of spunk and is very brave. He always has Rachel’s back if she needs him.


There are a few surprises in this book. Some I worked out, some snuck up on me.


I am rather attracted to Quen. He is very mysterious. Trent Kalamack , I just can’t help putting him in front place for my Team guy, he’s not coming across good, but I am still wondering about that garden path we are being led up.

Jonathan is still being uber creepy, ha!


Nick isn’t really doing a lot for me. I’m not sure if this is deliberate or I am just not feeling his connection with Rachel. He is getting himself into some serious extra curricula activities that may eventually be his down fall. When Nick calls Rachel, 'Ray-ray', it did kind of get on my nerves. Right then I knew he wasn't going to be the guy for Rachel....Trent would never call her  'Ray-ray'.


Glenn, I really like this guy. I am beginning to wonder if he has a bit of a crush on Rachel. Just the way Kim writes him. Glenn and Jenks’ kiddies are quite funny. Glenn and his relationship with ketchup are also quite funny.....ha!


The mystery in this book is the horrendous, disgusting , murders of Ley Line Witches. It ain’t pretty what is happening to them. Kim certainly knows how to paint a visual murder scene picture.


Ivy is becoming increasingly frightening to live with.....and Kisten, well, is this another dude that Rachel has some feelings for, or is it the scar talking?


This book was slower paced at the start, but not like book # 1, when, ‘The Good, The Bad and the Undead’ heated up, it really heated up.


I’m in for the whole series as the books do get better , and I want to know if my theory with Trent is correct. There’s just something about him.......


FAVE QUOTES:

“itsy-bitsy-skitsy.”

"I never said thank you."
"You're welcome anyway."
My lips pressed together. Ass.

"You called me by my first name, I like that."
I opened my mouth , then closed it. "So throw a party and invite the Pope......."

  2. Hi Cherry,

    I have heard that from book 3 it gets great! I am willing to keep on reading as this series has 10 books, I figure the publishers wouldn't have kept going with it if it was that bad. HON - House of Honor series P.C. Cast , that didn't start off too good, it got there in the end, several series didn't start off too good, but got there in the end. If I give up I willnever know:D
