Synopsis

"I wouldn’t miss a Kim Harrison book for anything."—Charlaine Harris, author of the Sookie Stackhouse novels

New York Times bestselling urban fantasy superstar Kim Harrison is back with Pale Demon—her ninth electrifying adventure featuring contemporary witch Rachel Morgan. This time Rachel's leaving the Hollows, on a cross-country road trip with a pixy, an elf, and a vampire, as she races to clear her blackened name at a California witches' convention in order to avoid an eternity of torment at the claws of a soul-devouring demon. Pale Demon is Kim Harrison at her gothic best—combining mystery, action, intrigue, paranormal romance, and breathtaking dark fantasy in a delicious witches’ brew that fans of Laurell K. Hamilton, Charlaine Harris, Stephenie Meyer, and Jim Butcher simply will not be able to resist.

Good

There are plenty of opportunities for kick-ass action and magical mayhem, giving the story a fast paced adventure feel, but it’s nothing series readers haven’t already experienced in previous books.

You'll forget the time when you read this book. I did....And you'll salute Kim Harrison when you reach the end of the story. It's not an easy thing for an author to consistently top herself. Good thing Harrison has the trick of it.
