I gave the book 3.5 score but rounded it to 3 stars. I love giving 3 stars to books that I think deserve so, yet I feel that I'm underestimating them. 3 star books are mercurial in their very being. I happen to think that the author is her own worst enemy.

Whenever a clash is about to occur, or when there's tension and drama and pathos in the present reading of a particular chapter, The author changes the scene and I am left with the feeling that nothing is resolved.

There is a large cast of char

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

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.

Just too much Rachel/Ivy drama for me. I suffered through about 12 hours of that until the story got interesting. And, I'm not seeing any real character growth so I'm taking an extended, maybe permanent break. It was tiresome seeing Rachel make the same dumb mistakes over and over again through five books.

On a brighter note, the narration is excellent.

“There were no more choices, no more options, no more clever ways out of a tough situation. And the rush, I realized in a brutal wash of despair, is a false god I’ve chased my entire life. One that cost me everything in the blind search for sensation. My entire existence amounted to nothing.”


I have no idea how I found the courage to read this book until it's very end. This one was full of suspense and a constant stress and a feeling that someone wouldn't come out of this alive, and for once,

It was so darn good to get back into this world. Even though I knew I loved this series, it was a huge reminder just why I love it.

Once again Rachel has gotten herself into a sticky situation. One full of danger, lies, and oh yeah, demons. The stakes are getting higher and not everyone is going to come out of this one alive.

There were so many feels with this, I don't even know where to begin. So much was revealed and said, and done.

I can't even begin to express how much I love this series. It

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

Why?!?! Nobody warned me about Kisten.
This was a good edition to series but definitely left me sad.
Lauren Stoolfire
The best book in the series so far. I've said it before and I'll say it again: Jenks is the real MVP. By the way, the short story included at the end of the novel called "The Bridges of Eden Park" was particularly brutal to read because of how the novel ended. How could Kim Harrison do that to us?

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

Still a 5 star read and i still love this series i was really disappointed and heartbroken at the ending but i understand it and that it will be a big turning point for Rachel a loss like that numbs certain aspects giving way to new less rose tinted ones....

I love and hate Rachel... I cannot understand her reluctance of certain things and her risks in others she is definitely an enigma, I do feel sorry for her that she has to base her whole life around Ivy's feelings and if she really had the op

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

There is something wrong with Rachel. I'm starting to like this series less and less. Why is she so stupidly slicing off her nose to spite herself? She's a total screw up from what I can tell. She is also a selfish bitch who has too many loyal friends. Why do they gather around her? I really don't know. How many people is she going to take down with her? While I did like reading to learn more about what is going on, I'm starting to really dislike this dumb bitch. If there is one thing I can't ab ...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

Actual rating: 3 to 3.5 I-Expected-More stars.

If I'm forced to pick a least favorite in the series thus far, it'd be this one. I'm not a fan of a few huge plot points in this one. I can't say more for fear of spoiling. Will I continue the series? Well...duh!!! This series and world and characters are still crack to me!!!
Erin *Proud Book Hoarder*
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

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

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

This review is also featured on Behind the Pages: For A Few Demons More

It was as if a part of me had died, accepting that I couldn’t be who I wanted, so I had to work at making who I was, someone I could live with.

Rachel is going to have to accept demons are going to ruin her life. Every time she turns around, a demon seems to be crossing the lines to pester her. Of course, it doesn’t help that she’s learning how to spin curses from Ceri. But if a curse doesn’t hurt someone, it isn’t evil right?

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

This was Heart Pounding! I was cold and then hot, I was engulfed in this one. I was disappointed about Brett; I wanted him to become a part of the team. Sick about Kistin, still despise Ivy. I think Trent cares about her, but he will turn into a snake at a moment’s notice. I liked Manias and Big AL was funny. I laughed a lot in this one. This just might be my favorite one. Can't wait to see what is next.

“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.”
