Book Review: Every Which Way But Dead (The Hollows #3) by Kim Harrison

There's no witch in Cincinnati tougher, sexier, or more screwed up than bounty hunter Rachel Morgan, who's already put her love life and soul in dire jeopardy through her determined efforts to bring criminal night creatures to justice.

Between "runs," she has her hands full fending off the attentions of her blood-drinking partner, keeping a deadly secret from her backup, and resisting a hot new vamp suitor.

Rachel must also take a stand in the war that's raging in the city's underworld, since she helped put away its former vampire kingpin - and made a deal with a powerful demon to do so that could cost her an eternity of pain, torment, and degradation.

And now her dark "master" is coming to collect his due.

Yes, I know I'm reviewing these out of order.  This is what happens when you try to play catch-up with reviews.  Anyway...

The Hollows by Kim Harrison is definitely one of my favorite series of all time.  Every Which Way But Dead is the third book in the series and is another example of the excellent writing of Kim Harrison.  I think I'd enjoy reading her grocery list.

Rachel is in trouble.  She's wrestling the demon Al to keep her freedom; trying to find her way in her relationship with Ivy, her roommate; getting hot under the collar for Kistan, the vampire; and arguing with her partner, Jenks.   So, yah, everything's normal.

While the story is great, the genius as always in this series is the characters.  Harrison writes characters that can pop off the page and go out to dinner with you.  As long as it's not Piscary, the vampire kingpin.  

You can read this book without reading the first two in the series, but I think it would be more enjoyable to start with the first book, Dead Witch Walking and read them in order.  This series is a must read for paranormal/supernatural vampire, pixy, werewolf fans!

 I give this book 4 Bookworms.
