Where Demons Dare (The Hollows #6)
The sixth book in Harrison’s New York Times bestselling urban fantasy series starring Rachel Morgan. A pacey and addictive novel of sexy bounty-hunting witches, cunning demons and menacing vampires.
Having barely escaped being skewered by the criminal vampire overlord of Cinncinati, Rachel now has even bigger problems to contend with.
The demon, Algaliarept, although banishe...more
I mentioned in my review of For a Few Demons More that Al was in trouble with the demons and wanted Rachel to help him out . . .
Yeah, guess how well that went over . . .
So Al's HELLA pissed (b/c he's a total blame shifter) and in demon jail, but only during the day, b/c he's arranged for someone to summon him to the real world as soon as the sun sets everyday.
But who? Hmmm?? Probably not who you're thinking . . .
Regardless of who is doing it, Al's getting out ...more
Rachael -- more mature
Ivy -- more sane
Jenks -- still keeping it real
Ceri -- big suprises
Al -- big suprises
Kristen -- still dead
Rachael's Mom -- big suprises
Trent -- whoa is me. I love him but he doesn't give me much to work with.
In this installment, Rachael has to face some rough truths. My heart went out to her as she struggled with so many variables. I didn't get frustrated with her decision-making process as in previous books b ...more
In this story Rachel is being stalked by the demon "Al" and she has to find a way to stop him attempting to hurt her and her family whilst saving a elf race all at the same time.
If you have been disheartened by previous books this one should hopefully pull you back into the series.
In this latest outing, she's upped the ante even more by not doing what Hamilton does as her series continues--to wit, regress her plots to the point where they are mere frames on which she hangs her torpidly overwritten soft-core pornography--but instead takes her character the other way. This 6th book of the series takes u ...more
This volume picks up right after book 5, For a Few Demons More, which includes some shockers that I really don't want to mention here for anyone who hasn't read that one and it makes talking about ODW difficult without spoiling FFDM.
ODW is similarly dense in twists, turns, and revelations. The official Hollows mailing list banned all discussion of it until six weeks after publication, an un ...more
Stuff .. happened, in this one. Lots of stuff. Stuff I didn't see coming (but appreciate).
I also got my wish from the last book - more Quen, Takata and Minias - although possibly not in ways I expected. Heh.
Anyway, it's good to see Rachel finally starting to take charge of her own life. So far, she's been kick-ass and awesome enough, but far too often in reaction, while here she's finally proactively dealing with stuff (and in some cases, even with some maturity). Also, this is the firs ...more
Loved learning about how Ceri became Al's familiar. I think this is my favorite of the short stories.
Still reeling from the shocking end of For a Few Demons More (Book 5), one has to wonder if the series can bounce back. I can certainly say that it does. About the only way to do it is with more action and twists, and we definitely get it in this book.
Everything you thought y ...more
Ok, it's time to move on...
Three months have passed for Rachel since the
events of the last book & like me - she's having a little trouble moving forward w ...more
Still not sure why I like these series so much, since Rachel never really does anything except wait and whine and nothing ever happens... and it's oh so dramatic. But I just... do.

Okay, here's the thing. I like these books. They're fun, and they have a genuinely artless sort of appeal. The series started out really rough clay, if you know what I mean, so it was clear from day one that Harrison has an instinct for what will satisfy emotionally, if no ...more
In this book, nothing is easy for Rachel. Secrets come to surface and she learns many harsh truths about herself. But whatever happens to ...more
Finally, Harrison lets the cat out of the bag in a bi ...more
Oh. My. God. Harrison has outdone herself. The action is set from the very beginning and doesn't stop. The revelations, the intensity, the drama, all of it made me speechless from start to finish. Harrison weaves a thrilling plot and sub plots while giving us humor, action, and the same beloved characters that make the series what it is.
As mentioned on my home page, I assume that you have read the previous books, so this review will have references to the happenings of past books.
"My name is Rachel Mariana Morgan. Conjure by it at your own risk. When demons get deadly, when vamps get vicious, when pixies get pesky, when the Ever-after gets eerie, give me a call. I'm in the book."
No, Rachel doesn't say this. But she so totally should.(view spoiler)[When someone actually did summon her, I started laughing--and this was why. (hide spoiler)]
Kim Harrison's series is one of the most well-known and well-regarded urban fantasy/paranormal romance series out there ...more
We find out about Rachel's true heritage and learn more about her parents. We see more of Rachel and Ivy working through their blood balance. This is shown in a scene where I had to put the book down, and walk away from th ...more
Un 6ème volume qui marque un tournant dans l'intrigue, et l'appréciation que j'ai de cette série. Pour la 1ère fois depuis le début, j'ai réussi à m’intéresser à Rachel, et a m'identifier à elle. C'est un tome de la métamorphose, car on la retrouve plus mure, plus réfléchie, moins bête, plus humaine, et aimable. Rien que pour cela, je ne pouvais pas lui mettre moins de 4.
Je n'ai pa ...more
Another excellent book. A lot of loose ends were tied up in this which was very satisfying but also sad too. I dont know whats going on with Rachel and Trent, i thought maybe something was going to happen between them but then he does a complete turnaround arrggghh just get together already ! Im glad Rache and ivy have came to an understandng, i never really got the thing between them it was weird but hopefully thats behind them now and they can be happy. New arrivals from Marsh ...more
