Rachel Morgan has had some tough issues to deal with in less than one year. She's been marked for death by the organization that she once worked for and survived. She's been marked and almost claimed by a rather nasty demon, yet managed to best even that complex being. And so achingly close to home, she's still coming to terms with her scattered love life, confusingly twisted around her roommate Ivy, her lover Kisten and former boyfriend Nick. It's not a love triangle, but it comes durn close! When her estranged partner, Jenks, comes on board for one last run, they're off to Michigan to pull Nick and one of Jenks' sons out of trouble. As always with our dear, flawed Rachel, she gets way more than she bargained for and soon they're fending off the unwanted attentions of some disturbingly unified Were packs. Why are the Weres uniting and what will it bring as the normally submissive species climbs its way towards top of the supernatural food chain? Nothing good for the vamps, which have much to lose if the packs do unite. With ultra aggressive Weres sniping from every direction, and more undead looking on her with not so subtle lust, what's a poor earth witch to do? With Rachel, it's an open book and fans may be surprised at the lengths she's willing to go to in this one.Read more ›
Rachel and jenks leave town to find nick and jenks son who are in trouble after stealing a were artefact supposed to do...err...after reading I'm still not sure and don't really care. I like this series but don't love it only because of three things really: The whole ivy and Rachel relationship and how Rachel constantly analyses it and blames herself when ivy loses control (classic domestic abuse behaviour, by the way), the way Rachel obsesses about doing black magic and how it taints her as if she is the most pious woman on the planet, and the really long boring descriptions of the magic rituals featured in all the books. This book has all these issues more than ever, so Rachel seemed more whiny than usual. She has spent the previous three books asserting that she will NEVER let ivy bite her then all of a sudden changes her mind over some weird need to do what she thinks is best for ivy. Their relationship generally starts blurring lines because its obvious Rachel loves ivy even though she is straight. However that is believable but rachels about turn on the biting thing just isn't for me. And surprise surprise she does more harm than good. Nick goes from the love of her life to the bad guy in the space of this book which feels a bit jarring and there's a scene where Rachel tricks a scuber diving guy to take her out on a boat so she can steal the equipment but then she turns around and tells him the truth and he just says, ok, and goes out of his way to help her. As if that would happen. Why is it that men always seem to go out of their way to help Rachel for no reason? Hmm.
Anyway apart from these issues it was enjoyable enough as an action urban fantasy and the vest thing about it is jenks being big. Hilarious and touching at times. Worth reading as part of a series of general merit but hardly mind blowing stuff.
In fact, in this story we take a road trip away from Cincinnati - Rachel receives news that Nick (her old flame) and Jenks' son Jax are in trouble, and sets out to help them. Since Ivy is supposedly unable to leave Cincinnati - otherwise Piscary gets pissed - Rachel invokes black demon magic in order to make Jenks...more useful. In the course of the story Rachel beats two Were alphas, discovers the existence of the Focus which could cause widescale warfare between Weres and Vamps, takes her relationship with Ivy to a new stage, and ogles Jenks......a lot!
There is a lot going on in this book, and it rapidly became my least favourite so far. I enjoyed the interaction between Rachel and Jenks - particularly because his presence was so missed in the previous book - and the uniqueness of his situation in this book. It was also heartbreaking to realise along with Rachel that Jenks actually counts as an old pixy. I liked the set up of the plan, and cheered the double cross of Nick.
However, there were many things I disliked or got tired of. Weres aren't really my thing, and so I found it difficult to stay interested in the main part of the plot. I ended up wanting to shake Rachel, because she came distinctly whiney in this book.Read more ›
