Frigging Amazing! Why did it have to end?!
Condemned to death for black magic and shunned, Rachel Morgan has three days to somehow get to the annual witches convention in San Francisco and clear her name. If she fails, the only way she can escape death is to live in the demonic ever after . . . for ever after.
Banned from the flight lists, Rachel teams up with elven tycoon Trent Kalamack, headed for the West Coast for his own mysterious business. But Rachel isn’t the only passanger along for the ride. Can a witch, an elf, a living vampire, and a pixy in one car survive for over 2,300 miles? And that’s not counting the assassin on their tail.
A fearsome demon walks the sunlight, freed after centuries of torment to slay the innocent and devour souls. But his ultimate prey is Rachel Morgan. While the powerful witch with nerves of steel will do whatever it takes to stay alive, even embracing her own demonic nature may not be enough to save her.
Best installment yet!
"Pale Demon" is the ninth installment in the Hollows series by the amazing, Kim Harrison.
If your a fan of The Hollows series already, then this was a must read for you. If your like me, then you were begging for this installment since you finished "BMS" and ofcourse after reading this I can happily say, it's my favorite of the series. Yes, there were more emotionally written installments in this series, but this was just too good to be true. Only bad thing is, the next one won't be out for another year. *Pulls hair out waiting!*
I don't want to give any major spoilers, but I have to say, I loved the interaction between Rachel and Trent.
Trent was always a favorite of mine, but not as much as he is now. Trent opens up, yeah, I know..sounds too good to be true, right? But he honestly does grow as a character and we see a whole new side of him. It's definitely exciting.
Al is my favorite as always. Although he's the "bad guy", he's my favorite for Rachel. He's right for her, in a weird, sick kind of way. If your also a fan of Al, then this novel is a slam dunk for you. He isn't in the beginning as much as I'd like, but he comes through from the middle to end strong.
Jenks. Jenks. Jenks. Am I ever glad he's still going strong. I don't know what I'd do without him in this series. He's what makes this series what it is. "Pale Demon" shows him trying to grow withouth Malida. He's ajusting, although it isn't easy for him. He misses his wife, but he's trying to move on with his life. But Jenks is Jenks and he still makes you laugh with his quirky sayings. His loyalty is amirable, he truly is a great character. One of the best.
Ivy has grown imendesly in this instalemment. I never thought I'd see the day of how much Ivy has matured as a vampire. Her happiness is something we've never seen, and I like seening it.
Rachel is the same old Rachel. Yes, she's grown, but she still makes Rachel mistakes. Though, that's why we love her -lol. I love Rachel, she's one of my favorite female characters. She's smart, pretty, funny and can kick major butt. There's no lack of butt kicking in this novel, that's for sure.
Over all I'd rate this novel a 10 out of 5! (Yes, I know impossible, but it really was that good!) It was non-stop action and was full of twists. I had a hard time putting it down to eat. It was one for the shelves, and worth every penny.
