Book Review: For a Few Demons More (The Hollows #5) by Kim Harrison

Despite dating one vampire and living with another, Rachel Morgan has stayed ahead of trouble until now. A serial killer stalks the Hollows, claims victims across society, and ignites a vicious Inderland gang war. Rachel hides an ancient artifact that could stop the killer or start a battle to the death among supernatural races of Cincinnati. Every action has its price. When the vampire master Piscary is set free and the demonic Algaliarept dares to walk openly under the sun, even Rachel Morgan can't hide forever.

Well, here we start the fifth book in The Hollows series by Kim Harrison with Rachel dealing with the same problem as in the fourth book.  The werewolf artifact.  I still find the idea of this artifact and what it does just... weird.  However, For a Few Demons More shoots back up to the quality of the first few books in the series.

Harrison writes characters that you can completely love, hate, like, loathe, or anywhere in between.  She creates them in 3-D.  Even the villains have soft sides.  Everyone is constantly evolving.  I have to admit, though, that sometimes I want to slap Rachel upside the head because she doesn't learn very quickly.  She runs head-on into danger without a plan, she constantly wavers on her relationship with Ivy.  It would be nice to see her grow up some.

For a Few Demons More is a gut-wrenching, action-packed book.  Be ready for anything, because that's what's going to happen!

 I give this book 4 Bookworms.
