Book Description

Nov. 14 2011 Hollows (Book 9)

"I wouldn’t miss a Kim Harrison book for anything."—Charlaine Harris, author of the Sookie Stackhouse novels

New York Times bestselling urban fantasy superstar Kim Harrison is back with Pale Demon—her ninth electrifying adventure featuring contemporary witch Rachel Morgan. This time Rachel's leaving the Hollows, on a cross-country road trip with a pixy, an elf, and a vampire, as she races to clear her blackened name at a California witches' convention in order to avoid an eternity of torment at the claws of a soul-devouring demon. Pale Demon is Kim Harrison at her gothic best—combining mystery, action, intrigue, paranormal romance, and breathtaking dark fantasy in a delicious witches’ brew that fans of Laurell K. Hamilton, Charlaine Harris, Stephenie Meyer, and Jim Butcher simply will not be able to resist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Witches and elves on the run Feb. 24 2011
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
The most head-scratchingly complex relationship in the Rachel Morgan series has always been between Rachel and Trent.

And after several books of dancing around the topic, Kim Harrison dives headfirst into the respectful-yet-antagonistic relationship in "Pale Demon." Her ninth Rachel Morgan book is a taut, lean thriller with crackling dialogue and some very unusual magic -- and the centerpiece is the baggage-laden exchanges between witch and elf.

While Rachel is preparing for her coven pardon and her brother's wedding, Trent reveals that he wants to take her there himself. Je also has important business in the same area -- and despite her reservations, Rachel reluctantly agrees. But their road trip is interrupted when a trio of elf assassins attack them in St. Louis.

It turns out that Trent is after something he's desperate to claim from his ex-fiancee, and he needs Rachel as his "mirror, sword and shield." And their road trip only gets worse as they deal with pixie tribes, hostile witches, and a daywalking demon named Ku'Sox. As the witch world turns against Rachel again, she finds that she is the only one who can stop Ku'Sox.

"Pale Demon" is basically about a vacation from hell that blooms into a massive supernatural battle. But under the skin, the book is actually about the relationship between Trent and Rachel, which always seems to be hitting potholes -- when they aren't practically ripping each other's heads off, they're sizzling with sexual tension.

And after the complicated tangles of the last few books, "Pale Demon" is a relatively straightforward book -- there's a lean, fast-paced story entangled with just a few running subplots.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kim Harrison Rules Sept. 27 2013
By Bootsy Bass TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Best Urban Fantasy series I have ever read. I love the writing of Kim Harrison. I read the first 10 books all in a row and view the series as one big book. Therefore, differentiating between individual volumes is impossible for me. Therefore I rate every book, so far, as a 5 and heartily recomend them to all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, Entertaining Storytelling Aug. 25 2013
By Debra Purdy Kong TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Earth witch Rachel Morgan has to drive (she’s not allowed to fly) from Cincinnati to San Francisco in three days to attend the annual witch’s conference. Rachel’s been shunned by the coven of moral and ethical standards, and must defend herself for using black magic. She wants to be pardoned, however others want her permanently gone. Complicating her journey is an elf named Trent, who needs to get to Seattle fast but won’t tell Rachel why. Nor is he eager to explain why someone is trying to kill him. Rachel’s determination to help save everyone, including traveling buddies, Jenks and Ivy, proves more difficult when Trent unleashes a powerful demon. As Rachel’s trust in Trent evaporates, time is quickly running out.

Pale Demon is the first Kim Harrison novel I’ve read, and I loved it. There is a terrific balance of detail, character development, backstory, and plotting in Rachel’s world. In addition to entertaining characters, Harrison explores some pretty intense themes here: belonging, acceptance, self worth, and the cost of taking big risks to set things right. I understand why this is a bestselling series, and look forward to going back and starting at the beginning.
