Product Description

Review

“Harrison’s colorful cast of supporting characters keeps the story moving among the fast-paced action scenes. Longtime fans will obviously be standing in line for this one. However, readers with any interest in urban fantasy can easily jump into the story.” (Library Journal)

“With the end of this popular series coming soon, fans will be savoring the remaining episodes all the more, and those who have delayed entry will begin jumping on board.” (Booklist)

“The pace and tone of A Perfect Blood reflects its protagonist: a little more cautious, reflective and purposeful, and the book is more powerful as a result…Harrison provides the strongest and most self-assured Rachel we’ve seen yet.” (Miami Herald)

“Kim Harrison has created a popular series that captures the imagination.” (North County Times)

From the Back Cover

Ritually murdered corpses are appearing across Cincinnati, terrifying amalgams of human and other.

Pulled in by the FIB to help investigate, former witch-turned-day-walking demon Rachel Morgan soon realizes a horrifying truth: others want to create their own demons, and to do so they need her blood.

She’s faced vampires, witches, werewolves, demons, and more—but this time Rachel’s toughest challenge might be humanity itself.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Feb. 21 2012
Format: Hardcover
In urban fantasy, human beings are usually the pathetic losers - we don't get any cool supernatural powers that witches, werewolves or vampires get, and we're usually depicted as ineffectual racists. At best, we're just oblivious.

Kim Harrison is among the few authors to tackle the subject with any real depth. "A Perfect Blood" is a smart, witty, fast-paced book where a small but clever cabal of humans humans are the enemy. While the plot gets a little bogged down in Rachel's woes as a new demon, the main plot is tense, taut, and genuinely scary at times.

Rachel is furiously treading water in the government bureaucracy when an old, powerful vampire (via a young one named Nina) offers her a deal -- if she helps solve a bizarre crime, he will arrange for her to be declared "alive" again.

But the crime is more than merely strange: a young man who was ritually murdered, and partly transformed into a hideous beast-man. Even worse, he's not the first. Rachel realizes that someone was trying to transform him into a demon. And the perpetrators seem to be HAPA (Humans Against Paranormals Association), a hate group that wants to destroy all Inderlanders, and is now using magic to do it.

And since Rachel's demon blood makes her a huge blinking target, she begins worrying about the people she cares for -- and what will happen if she finally removes the elven bracelet. But soon she begins to realize that has members hidden in the IS and/or FIB -- and everyone around her might have their own agenda.

Excellent book. Well worth reading. This book will make you wonder if she and Trent might eventually become something more than allies and sometimes friends.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Kim's books are like candy: Once I start a book, I'm unable to put it down until the very last page. Consequently, I find myself waiting anxiously for months only to be finished in hours. In this book, we learn of a human organization dedicated to the extermination of paranormal species (HAPA). As with all of Kim's books, ends are never quite tied off leaving me sure that this is not the last we'll see of HAPA. Older characters such as Ivy and Jenks seem to get less page space here, but we see meaningful develpment in Rachel's relationship with Trent. One complaint for me would be fewer scenes with Al (my all time favourite character), Newt and the other demons, but the stage appears set for demons to play a more prominent role in the next installment. Looking forward to it.
