Book Description

Mar 2007 The Hollows (Book 5)

The fifth book in Harrison’s New York Times bestselling urban fantasy series starring Rachel Morgan. A pacey and addictive novel of sexy bounty-hunting witches, cunning demons and menacing vampires

Bargaining with demons has left Rachel Morgan in constant danger of losing her soul.

As if being famous in the underworld – for all the wrong reasons – and sharing her home with a vampire and her jealous girlfriend didn't make her vulnerable enough, one night Rachel finds demons ransacking her home with no fear of sanctified ground. They are searching for something they believe Rachel to possess – a danger that Rachel thought was well hidden and secret.

But when the human morgue starts to fill up with partially-turned lupine women who have been brutally murdered, Rachel realises that someone else knows the Focus still exists and that she may have been betrayed.

More About the Author

The only girl in a large family of boys, former tomboy Kim Harrison invented the first Brigadier General Barbie in self-defence. She shoots a very bad game of pool and rolls a very good game of dice. When not at her keyboard, she enjoys lounging on the couch with a bowl of popcorn watching action movies with The-Guy-In-The-Leather-Jacket. She plays her Ashiko drum when no one is listening, and is hard to find when the moon is new.

5.0 out of 5 stars She's certainly not slipping, not a bit! 4 Mar 2007
Format:Paperback
This is the 5th book in a series I strongly recommend you read in order, both because of the personality development that takes place across the books, and because old, presumed solved, issues raise their ugly heads in later books and it won't be half as much fun. The first four are 'Dead Witch Walking', 'The Good, The Bad and The Undead', 'Every Which Way But Dead', 'A Fistful of Charms' and now, of course, 'For A Few Demons More'.

Rachel Morgan started out going 'on the run' in the first book and despite soon physically settling in one place, she's still running. She lives in a society where humans are frightened of tomatoes because a genetically modified strain killed many of 'us' off, thereby making every supernatural creature unable to hide in the mass of humanity anymore. So you have everything, vampires, demons, pixies, werewolves and so on - collectively known as 'Inderlanders'. Rachel is one too, because Witches aren't just talented or learned humans, they're as otherworldly as vampires and perhaps because they aren't as obvious, trusted the less for it.

Rachel started out as a kind of supernatural policewoman, a 'runner', making sure humans aren't preyed upon (unless they want to be) and generally trying to keep the supernatural species from each other's throats. I don't like giving away plot developments, so look away here if you've not read the first book - she quickly loses this job, and sets up on her own with a not-quite-vampire (she was born that way, and has to die to become a vampire), Ivy.

What drove me to write this review - apart from the fact that she's keeping me hooked into book 5 - is that the paperback edition I have says on the front 'action packed chicklit with a supernatural twist' - the Times.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Never Enough--More, Please! 18 April 2007
Format:Paperback
In many ways, Rachel Morgan's problems come full circle in this fifth installment of the Hallows series. With enemies drawing closer than they ever have before, her palette of choices is fast becoming slim to none. In one power play after the next, Rachel's about to fall behind enemy lines, instead of the one step ahead we've been seeing.

It's back to Cincinnati after her desperate attempt to save her pixie partner's son and her ex-boyfriend, Nick. Rachel harbors a rather nasty curse trapped in a bone prison, the focus, which threatens to twist the realities of Weres and vampires alike, both of wom squabble over it like children. With Trent vying for it, someone killing for it and our favorite demon Al lusting after it, Rachel once again has to find a way to undo another problem forced upon her. As the delicate balance between her and Ivy begins to come to a roiling boil, it's all the earth witch can do to stay this side of good, acceptable magic. With her special blood and desire to help others though, it's near impossible for her to deflect the trouble that comes looking for her with a vengeance. Unable to unload the focus on just anyone, she'll have to decide who's the best choice...and none of them are looking particularly stellar.

The first of Harrison's series to be offered in hardback, it's a worthy installment for it, tipping the scales even further towards excellent. For a Few Demons More wraps up some of the problems that Rachel has been having over the course of the other books while of course unraveling others even further. Trent comes back into play and it's a totally different side of him than readers have read before. Ceri, the powerful ex-demon familiar, shows Rachel just how much she respects her and Rachel's pack mate David takes on a major role.

4.0 out of 5 stars Supernatural action: a really witchy romp 4 April 2007
By Rowena Hoseason HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Kim Harrison's series about Rachel Morgan is leaping along, and this volume is probably the best of the bunch.

It's set in an alternative universe where fairies, vampire, werewolves and witches have come out from the shadows and exist in uneasy harmony with humanity.

Rachel is a witch -- and like all good modern heroines she is feisty and up for it (whether it is a spot of fisticuffs or frolics between the sheets). Her supporting cast includes a female vampire flatmate (who's a lot in love with Rachel but that love is unrequited -- maybe!); a frisky pixie and his entire family; a werewolf who choose Rachel to be his pack alpha; a vampire boyfriend, a human ex-boyfriend thief, an evil (maybe) elf; a good (maybe) elf, and a bunch of demons who are all out for her blood.

The series have really broadened and developed in the five books, and it is clear that there is plenty of Rachel's history which has yet to be revealed.

This genre is a tricky one to manage. It's part soap-opera and part supernatural thriller. I have given up on a few other series because they end up being excuses for soft-porn or childish girly fantasies. Kim Harrison doesn't make that mistake and so far she's balancing the demands of plot and character in a believable yet fantastic universe very well.

It's not flawless, which is why it doesn't get the 5-star rating. Kim tends to find a favourite phrase ('pity party' or 'my blood pressure spiked') and rely on it too much. She deserves better editing to make her prose flow without such interruptions to the reader's concentration.

But otherwise this is a thoroughly enjoyable, entertaining and uplifting book.
