Condemned and shunned for black magic, Rachel Morgan has three days to get to the annual witches’ conference and clear her name, or be trapped in the demonic ever-after . . . forever after.
But a witch, an elf, a living vampire, and a pixy in one car going across the country? Talk about a recipe for certain disaster, even without being the targets for assassination.
For after centuries of torment, a fearsome demon walks in the sunlight—freed at last to slay the innocent and devour their souls. But his ultimate goal is Rachel Morgan, and in the fight for survival that follows, even embracing her own demonic nature may not be enough to save her.
ROAD TRIP! Pack your bags and fasten your seat belts, it's gonna get freaky! Pale Demon by Kim Harrison is the 9th book in The Hollows series. It has all the charm, action, fun, and snarkiness that all the other books in the series have.
With everyone stuck in a car together, there's a lot of interaction between the ones making the trip - Rachel, Ivy, Trent, and Jenks. Although with ley line jumping, plenty of other characters get in the mix. They may even pick up a hitchhiker or two. The intense forced closeness of a car journey brought out a lot of bickering, but also some surprise revelations about the characters. They couldn't help but do a bit of bonding.
The story is full of demons, pixy dust, and Rachel's trademark experimental magic. In my opinion, this book is better than the last. Kim Harrison never disappoints!
I give this book 4 Bookworms.
