Harrison knows how to write emotion and action, and once the story was up and running, I was hard-pressed to keep up with all the twists and turns.

Synopsis

All the creatures of the night gather in "the Hollows" of Cincinnati, to hide, to prowl, to party . . . and to feed.

Vampires rule the darkness in a predator-eat-predator world rife with dangers beyond imagining—and it's Rachel Morgan's job to keep that world civilized.

A bounty hunter and witch with serious sex appeal and an attitude, she'll bring 'em back alive, dead . . . or undead.

The ending sequence of events is so predictable it’s almost depressing to read it play out when you know what’s coming.

The vampire angle is pretty much what’s been written in other novels and for me, Ivy and her associates weren’t the most interesting elements in this book.
