**4.5 stars**

Rachel's finally owned up to what she is and is going around trying to get her life back on track. In the meantime, a human hate group called HAPA are trying to turn witches into demons with horrific results. The I.S. and FIB are not cooperating with each other and one is coercing Rachel into working for them or they will blame her for HAPA's crimes. Rachel's all too willing to help, the only problem? She put that darn charmed bracelet on. Will she be brave enough to take it off?

For me, there are three parts of this book. The first one being the investigation. Typical Rachel Morgan intrigue. I quite enjoyed the twist with the bad guys being humans and it never got boring. The second part is seeing all the complexities of the characters finally coming to fruition ~ or beginning to. This would be a hard book to appreciate if you haven't read the prior books in the series. And the third part is the ongoing tease of Rachel and Trent! At this point, I just don't know what to think....will they ever get together or just be buddies?

I just loved the growth of all the characters...even Rachel. Although she is still taking very slow, precise baby steps in her decisions regarding her personal life. So unlike herself when she's on a run and thinks on the fly, it just makes me laugh. I am glad that she's finally beginning to accept herself.

With some of the other characters, it made me a little sad because it seems as though there is some wrapping up going on and I'm just not ready. Thankfully, Jenks was still his amazing sharp witted self and his lines never fail to make me laugh.

And Mr. Trent? I think he is finally deciding to do some things he wants to do. And does that include Rachel? Sad to say I really have no idea. I was hopeful after the "kiss" in the last book but I kept going back and forth in this one. I was happy to have so many great moments of them though. I won't be happy if they don't get together but maybe they will come to terms with each other? I wish I had a clue! I am disappointed that nothing more happened or that we didn't even get another kiss. Nothing like waiting another year to find out!

Favorite line:

♥ "Oh, I'm sorry. Did I interrupt some sort of dominance foreplay?"

♥ "The cookie maker needs someone to look out for him."

“The cookie maker needs someone to look out for him.”
Kim Harrison, A Perfect Blood

Kim Harrison
“The want for that kiss had shocked him more than the interruption, and he fell back into the chair, cool and nonchalant as Quen came in with his questions and demands. He wasn't sure if he believed he'd really helped, but one thing was very clear. He wanted that again, that feeling of standing with her against all odds and succeeding. He wanted it so bad, he was going to risk destroying everything he and his father had worked for. He should walk away. Right now. But as she was ushered out the door under David's arm, all he wanted to do was follow her. What the hell was he doing, falling in love with a demon?”

ok will do!


Meredith Barrons Hey!! Great review! I agree with you 100%! It would have been nice to get a Rachel/Trent kiss in his office after the bracelet was off.... Babysteps I guess. I have hope for the next book though. Maybe it is better that Rachel is not jumping into things like she always does!!!


Sharon ✽ is an emotional book junkie ✽ Meredith...u have a good point about not jumping in. There were just so many sweet moments where Trent was looking out for her. I swear if they don't get together...i will be sooo upset...lol!


=^☺^=mskitty Damn I was hoping we'd get more of Rach and Trent....oh well...I'm starting today.
