And after several books of dancing around the topic, Kim Harrison dives headfirst into the respectful-yet-antagonistic relationship in "Pale Demon." Her ninth Rachel Morgan book is a taut, lean thriller with crackling dialogue and some very unusual magic -- and the centerpiece is the baggage-laden exchanges between witch and elf.
While Rachel is preparing for her coven pardon and her brother's wedding, Trent reveals that he wants to take her there himself. Je also has important business in the same area -- and despite her reservations, Rachel reluctantly agrees. But their road trip is interrupted when a trio of elf assassins attack them in St. Louis.
It turns out that Trent is after something he's desperate to claim from his ex-fiancee, and he needs Rachel as his "mirror, sword and shield." And their road trip only gets worse as they deal with pixie tribes, hostile witches, and a daywalking demon named Ku'Sox. As the witch world turns against Rachel again, she finds that she is the only one who can stop Ku'Sox.
"Pale Demon" is basically about a vacation from hell that blooms into a massive supernatural battle. But under the skin, the book is actually about the relationship between Trent and Rachel, which always seems to be hitting potholes -- when they aren't practically ripping each other's heads off, they're sizzling with sexual tension.
And after the complicated tangles of the last few books, "Pale Demon" is a relatively straightforward book -- there's a lean, fast-paced story entangled with just a few running subplots.Read more ›
Basically it's a road trip. A road trip with a witch, a vampire, a pixy and an elf. How could things go wrong?
All my favourite characters had plenty screen time: Al (yay!), Trent, Jenks, and even Bis got some.
What I loved most wasn't the nail biting action scenes, the sexy moments or the sweet ones (though they were all fantastic), but what I truly enjoyed was how far this book has actually moved the story forward. The character and relationship developments for example were mind blowing.
I seriously can not wait for the next book. I wish I had it now.
Fans of the series you must read this now!
New comers should start with the first book in the series, Dead Witch Walking (Rachel Morgan 1). It's a great series and worth the time. If you like Kelley Armstrong, Charlaine Harris, Jeaniene Frost, Ilona Andrews etc then you'll enjoy this.
I've been waiting for this book for ages, so I ordered it from America and snuggle up with it for a good couple of days - and it was a hardback (which I love), it was good enough that I had friends over, that I ushered them out (politely) so I could keep reading. Brilliant. :D
I'm not a spoiler reviewer so there really isn't alot more I can say but as an avid Hollows fan this book was beyond my expectations on every level. Outstanding and best book I've read in a year. I need to go into therapy now till the next book is published.
