Black Magic Sanction by Kim Harrison

Black Magic Sanction (Rachel Morgan/The Hollows, #8) Black Magic Sanction by Kim Harrison

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Hardcover: 496 pages
Publisher: Eos; 1 edition (Feb 23 2010)

Rachel Morgan has fought and hunted vampires, werewolves, banshees, demons, and other supernatural dangers as both witch and bounty hunter—and lived to tell the tale. But she's never faced off against her own kind . . . until now. Denounced and shunned for dealing with demons and black magic, her best hope is life imprisonment—at worst, a forced lobotomy and genetic slavery. Only her enemies are strong enough to help her win her freedom, but trust comes hard when it hinges on the unscrupulous tycoon Trent Kalamack, the demon Algaliarept, and an ex-boyfriend turned thief.

It takes a witch to catch a witch, but survival bears a heavy price.

My thoughts:

Another amazing book from one hell of a writer!
Kim Harrison out did herself once again. Black Magic Sanction is the 8th installment in the amazing Hollower series. I've been a fan from book one and was hooked from page one.
Each book just keeps getting better, and after Rachel's hard trials I'm glad to see her getting past her devastation.. Kisten will be deeply missed and I bet I'm not alone in saying that.
Rachel's still not out of the hot water. Rachel wouldn't be Rachel if she wasn't in some sort of trouble. And what a trouble she is in this time..

Rachel finds herself in a showdown with The Coven.
The Coven are technically committed to practicing only white magic.. but that doesn't make them any less dangerous. Because of her relationships to demons, The Coven attempt to lock her away in the witch prison of Alcatraz, guarded by violent guards who feed the inmates food that is drugged.

Black Magic Sanction expands on Rachel's relationship with the demon world. Al is a bigger character in this story (which I was so happy about) and we finally get a bigger glimpse of his world. Al is my favorite!
I honesty love the demon. I know he has his many faults, but Al is someone I can't stop thinking about. In this novel you can see he truly cares for Rach, even if it's not in the typical caring way. We see more of his personality and what it is to be a demon.

This story may have lots of action and suspense but it also have strong emotion. There were times where I laughed out tears and times where I truly cried my eyes out. We finally get to see the outcome of the pixies, of whom make the story what it is and what the past was like between Rachel and Trent.

A funny thing about the series is that Kim Harrison names her Hollows books after Clint Eastwood movies. Which really makes me laugh..not that I'd ever laugh at Clint Eastwood..but the thought is funny..
Another hilarious thing is Rachel, stoned.
Well not "stoned", but drugged. She is a very funny person when she open and free. Ever Al truly enjoyed her while stoned. He he!

If you have yet to read this series, I cannot stress the utter most importance in starting it! :P It truly is an amazing read. You will not be disappointed!
