Sometimes, though you know it to be true, nature will remind you of what a bitch it is.

Like, for example, if you come to Australia and manage to avoid the myriad of poisonous spiders, snakes, scorpions, jelly fish, stone fish and some frogs.

Then you manage to not get killed or viciously maimed by the crocodiles, koalas, cassowary, dingos, sharks, sting-rays and locals (do you have any idea of how many tourists go missing and get murdered in Australia?)

Then you survive the outback with its inten...more

So I don't know if I'm using the "@!?#" button correctly, but in my head it's the "WTF?! Elephant." Has been since I first laid eyes on it. So if that's not what it's supposed to mean, now you know what it means to me:

Elephant as illustration for WTF?! + @!?# (WTF?!) = WTF?! squared.

And that is what is going on here. And it is fan-friggin'-tastic.

Right. So Trent's getting married to Ellasbeth, and he wants Rachel to work security for the wedding.

Wow. That was my final impression of the much anticipated fifth book in Kim Harrison’s Rachel Morgan series. Much like Harrison’s previous work, For a Few Demons More was a non-stop, action packed romp through an alternate version of Cincinnati. My only complaint was that the relationship of two of the main characters seems to have taken two steps back for the single step forward it gained. And of course the death of a beloved character never sits too well with anyone. But enough of the teasing....more

Currently working my way through the requisite hundred or so pages of relationship angsting that has to happen before the plot starts. That may sound tedious, and frankly it is. But it's Harrison's pattern, and once the plot kicks into gear it's a fantastic ride. You just have to slog through that introductory angst first.

And now that I'm finished, I'm not sure what I think. The story itself was pretty darned exciting, but I'm getting a little sick of Rachel, and most of the people around her...more

For me this installment in the series wasn't as good as the last 2 books, which were a 5 stars-rating and favs. I would give this book 3.5 stars if possible.

The beginning was good. All the drama with Al was a great way to begin the book. I like him a lot. He's not one of my fav characters but a really good one; you just know that if he's in the picture thing will get juicy.

My problem was that then things got slower and slower. It took me forever to finish it. I got bored more than once and had...more

Not too far removed from Book 4, in For a Few Demons more we see that Rachel still has "the focus," a 5,000 year old demon-crafted werewolf artifact that was the focus of book 4. Considering its power, it's a hot commodity and everybody who is anybody wants to get their hands on it, from the evil Vampire Piscary to business tycoon and underground druglord, Trent Kalamack, to the Weres themselves. Rachel's got her hands full, and it doesn't help that her werewolf friend, David, is suspected of be...more

This book shredded me. I cried for the last 50 pages or so. And not just a silent tear or two, but out-loud crying... messy with used Kleenex all over the sofa. I will not spoil the why's of it, but I can't possibly talk about this book without acknowledging its enormous emotional impact. I don't know if I can ever forgive Kim Harrison.

With the ending weighing on me so heavily, it's hard to look back to the rest of the book. It starts out strong, addressing the repercussions of Rachel's interact...more

I stopped about 100 pages into this one in Fall 2010 because I did not see enough character development. Had I continued to read it I don't think I would have come away with a different perspective because I wanted it too badly. I was reading it at the same time I was getting into Cat and Bones of Night Huntress so I wanted more of that. My opinion of what should happen overshadowed my ability to really enjoy what was. This time around, I was better prepared for the character short comings due t...more

You know I really don't have a problem with same sex relationships, but if Ivy and Rachel go there I'm seriously going to stop reading this book. Like I said I don't have I problem I really just don't want to read about it. And Rachel, well she just keeps getting worse and worse ugh. I mean if Ivy doesn't want to go there then stop pushing it. Especially if neither of you can control yourselves. It's extremely annoying. Then there's the fact that nothing good ever happens. First Rachel lets ever...more

This book was soooo good! I swear, I love Rachel Morgan - she is so badass! The beginning of the book was really good. All the drama with Al was great. I like him a lot. He's not one of my fav characters but definitely one of the good ones! Plus, you just know, if Al's involved, things are bound to get juicy!

I had a few problems with this book. Mainly with Ivy. I liked her before, I even felt sorry for her in previous books but now her tragedy comes across as a bit irritating and overdone someti...more

It seems that The Hollows is a series that might just be a bit like crack: I don't find it that particularly awesome, and there's a lot about it that I don't in fact like, but overall, it's addictive and hard to stay away from - and dammit, I want more.

First, the bad: honestly? Pretty much the same things I've complained about in my reviews for the previous books. Epithets. Dear god, the epithets. There were long stretches where I either didn't notice them or an editor had got hold of some chunk...more

I have a love and hate relationship with this book series. Book 4 ended with a lot of hate. I was really annoyed by a lot things, which happened. So I took a long break from this series and wouldn't have touched the next book if was because of boredom.

But when I started it, I remembered why I liked it in the first place. I like the world, a couple of characters and the story and I thought that I may really like this book again, but than again I don't like the the author makes characters really u...more

Plain and simple: I love this series. That's about all there is to it. I know I sound like a broken record, but I think you'd be hard pressed to find something more entertaining and imaginative, at least in this genre. Harrison is a fabulous writer who's created some of the most heartfelt and entertaining characters I've come across in a long time.

This novel feels like everything has finally come to a head: Rachael's dealing with demon magic, she being the keeper of the much sought after were fo...more

Slipping back into Kim Harrison's world of Rachel and her friends and foes is very comforting. It makes me wish that I could never leave it because once I start reading her books I feel lost and amazed, the real world forgotten and far away in my mind. Each new volume beckons me to indulge in another fantastic adventure where the fights, jokes, puns, some wicked magic and charismatic characters hold me in a trance until the last page is devoured.

The fifth book of the series has been the book of...more
Erin (Paperback Stash)
Book five is such an interesting blend. While it is one of the best in the series, likely the funniest, it is also the most tragic and depressing.

For the characters, a reader gets plenty of page time with their favorites. Al is around quite often but not in the typical fashion and for different reasons. There's the return of an older villain. Trent gets plenty of time on the page, as well, but this book soured my impressions of him. Even after reading all the books now up to book 12, I still fee...more

Yay, I was finally able to give a Kim Harrison book four stars! Let's throw a party.
Much better than the first four books of this series. I wasn't feeling conflicted about it, or confused by it the whole time. I was along for the ride. And by the end, I was totally captivated. I think Rachel finally starts to figure some stuff about herself, which is a relief.
I won't ruin the ending for those of you who are deaf, dumb and blind on this site and don't know what happens already (I'd known since ab...more

I don't think this story could have been any better. It was full of action, drama, romance, and last, but not least, it was heartbreaking sad. I knew, what was going to happen, with a character in this story. I have known it, probably since the second book, when i decided to read some comments on the upcoming books. I have known it, in the way that, that character has slowly being removed from the spotlight of this one's and the previous book plot.
Knowing it, didn't make it easier...so i will jo...more

Sometimes, a novel is so good, yet so heartwrenchingly sad that just the thought of reviewing it, leaves you emotionally drained. This is one such book. Now that I'm done, I feel like I have to rely on coping mechanisms: I try to remember only the happy moments. Like Rachel's birthday party, or Ceri standing up to Trent, heck, even his wedding;-) Reading somebody their rights can be a lot of fun, especially when Rachel's the one doing the reading;-) Or Minias, the charming new demon who shows up...more

My favorite of the series so far! Once I had the time to get into it, I didn’t want to put it down! Really like that Trent was back and I always love Jenks! Although we lost a main character I have a feeling that the story is only going to keep getting better and I am glad that we are done with Piscary finally! I just love this series and can’t wait to read the next one!

Fifth in her urban fantasy series (click the author tag to view them all) featuring Rachel Morgan, witch for hire. Harrison’s books have an awful lot of boom, and this one is no exception between the weres who keep turning up dead, a master vampire about to be released from jail, bloodshed over the ancient artifact Rachel is hiding, oh yeah and the demon crashing Trent’s wedding.

There are a lot of things I could say here. I could say that, while Harrison’s writing gets better and better with ev...more

I absolutely love this series! I don’t believe that the author could write it better! Action, humor, drams, relationship matters… Everything combined in a astonishing way that makes the reader craving more and more! The world-building with its details is definitely one of the best in an urban fantasy series and the characters are not only very well-written but they have a great development in every installment in this series.

In this story, Rachel finds herself for one more time in the midst of t...more

The Hollows is one of the few series that have kept my interest throughout. The characters are unique, likable, and entertaining. Sure, they can be irritating at times, and they all have flaws. Rachel doesn't seem to know what she is doing one moment to the next sometimes, but that's ok. It's ok because it's realistic, and it makes the characters easier to relate to, which is something I find very important in a book. I know that some people were upset that one of the characters got killed off,...more

Excellent!

I can't decide which book in the series I liked the most! Great action, great scenes, great thinking by the main character... I can't ask for better. Rachel and her friends find a lot more trouble in this novel than the previous four, but this one was the best. Rachel endures more than she ever had in this novel, and she and her circle of friends have no choice but to deal with each catastrophe as they show up. The climax is gripping, the ending sad, but definitely not finished. Rachel...more

The Good
Rachel is not having a good day. She wakes up to find a demon in her kitchen, which should be impossible since demons can't enter sanctified churches (Rachel lives in a church). Werewolves are being murdered and it might have something to do with the Focus, a demon artifact, which Rachel happens to be hiding away from the many things after it. Oh, and pretty much everyone is out to get Rachel for some reason. Yup, just another day in the life of.

This book starts off very promising. Rach...more

Well it was intensely dark..I actually feel a little depressed after I finished it..

I find Rachel so irritating in this book..I mean there is a choice between staying alive or getting my soul dark ! Yes it is hard to decide..WTF?

This and all my other reviews are originally posted on my blog (un)Conventional Bookviews .

For a Few Demons More starts with Rachel waking up - but not really waking up! She can feel that someone else is inside her head, and she has no idea what to do to get rid of the other person - who has nothing to do in there anyway. As Rachel manages to force that someone out of her head, Ceri arrives to help her, but is terrified when she sees who is there.

This frantic mood continues through most of For a...more

“Sure am glad I'm not royalty," I muttered. "I wouldn't want to have to bump uglies with someone I can't stand. On a regular basis. And no one else."

"Ow!" I exclaimed, trying to yank my fingers from Trent but finding them caught. Then I colored, realizing what I'd said. "Oh… sorry," I stammered, meaning it. "That was insensitive."

Trent's frown turned into a sly smirk. "Bump uglies?" he said, eyes on the table behind me. "You are a font of gutter slang, Rachel. We must do this again.”
