blockbuster adventure featuring Rachel
Morgan, witch and bounty hunter

Some wounds take time to heal . . . and some scars never fade.

Rachel Morgan, kick-[butt] witch and bounty hunter, has taken her fair share of hits, and has broken lines she swore she would never cross. But when her lover was murdered, it left a deeper wound than Rachel ever imagined, and now she won't rest until his death is solved . . . and avenged. Whatever the cost.

Yet the road to hell is paved with good intentions, and when a new predator moves to the apex of the Inderlander food chain, Rachel's past comes back to haunt her.


This will be a bit rambling. This is my first attempt at "review"ing one of this series. Something about it causes a jumble of thoughts without much order.

Anyway, I know I've said (repeatedly) that I'm hooked on this series. It really surprises me. For one thing, while I enjoyed the first book, I was sure I'd be fed up with the series by the 3rd or 4th. I was worried there'd be too much sex or... well I skip those parts so if a story evolves around it, I have issues. Instead, I found myself caught in the overall story.

This particular book adds in some new creatures, some vengence and closure, some characters that I suspect came out in short stories (I haven't read any of the shorts and can't say for sure), and of course, several of the characters from previous books. Speaking of, I'm not sure how much longer Jenks will be around for these books, and I'm not sure how well the series will last after that, so... something to see about.

I'm looking forward to reading Black Magic Sanction (currently 7th in line for it at the library).
