The Hollows, Book 16
Synopsis: Rachel Morgan, witch-born demon, has one unspoken rule: take chances, but pay for them yourself. With it, she has turned enemies into allies, found her place with her demon kin, and stepped up as the subrosa of Cincinnati—responsible for keeping the paranormal community at peace and in line.
Life is . . . good? Even better, her best friend, Ivy Tamwood, is returning home. Nothing’s simple, though, and Ivy’s not coming alone. The vampires’ ruling council insists she escort one of the long undead, hell-bent on proving that Rachel killed Cincy’s master vampire to take over the city. Which, of course, Rachel totally did not do. She only transformed her a little.
With Rachel’s friends distracted by their own lives and problems, she reaches out to a new ally for help—the demon Hodin. But this trickster has his own agenda. In the end, the only way for Rachel to save herself and the city may be to forge a new understanding with her estranged demon teacher, Al. There’s just one problem: Al would sell his own soul to be rid of her. . . .
Review: It is always a real pleasure to discover the adventures of Rachel Morgan. This new volume is not all rest for her!
Ivy is back (yay!) but her return also means trouble, because she is accompanied by a master vampire who is determined to prove that she killed Constance and wants to take over the town! And this challenge will be far from easy because he has everything planned to have the upper hand. On top of that, Rachel will have to deal with the demons who seem determined to return to old habits that Rachel has forbidden. But that’s not all, because our heroine is also going to have to deal with Hodin, a demon that she thought was an ally, but who is going to turn her life upside down and not for the best.
I had a great time and I was curious to see how Rachel was going to be able to cope with everything that comes her way. And I have to say she is very imaginative! It’s a very cool series, always with lots of surprises. A must read!
