Product Description

Review

“I wouldn’t miss a Kim Harrison book for anything.” (Charlaine Harris)

“...the nearly nonstop action nicely plays off the poignancy of Rachel’s difficult life.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Her work can read like a smoldering combination of Alice Waters and Ozzy Osbourne.” (New York Times Book Review)

“Movie Pitch: Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Tank Girl. Lowdown: Outlaw may be tough for newbies, but Rachel’s personal growth, series-altering revelations, and a lot of humor make it inviting. B+.” (Entertainment Weekly)

“Rachel boldly tackles every challenge amid a cascade of plot twists that will delight Harrison’s fans” (Publishers Weekly)

“Harrison has a real flare for pacing and plotting.” (Jeff VanderMeer, Realms of Fantasy)

“{A} demonkicking extravaganza… Action-packed and full of Rachel’s persisten erotic ruminations, this titillating tale includes a shocking finale that will leave fans panting for the next installment in the Hollows series.” (Publishers Weekly)

“You’ll love this bounty-hunter team. . . . A fun-fair ride through a fascinating version of our world.” (Charlaine Harris, USA Today Bestselling Author of Club Dead)

“Harrison makes Rachel’s conflicts real and poignant without turning them into melodramatic slush. .. Harrison devotees should find ample emotional revelations and plot resolution, with enough loose ends to have them eagerly awaiting the next installment.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“The well-crafted world of the Hollows continues to grow more complex … Harrison’s following has grown as readers continue to discover her work, and fans of the early books in Laurell K. Hamilton’s Anita Blake series will enjoy Rachel Morgan’s supernatural adventures. Recommended.” (Library Journal)

“A wonderfully fun romp through the supernatural world, a spellbinding blend of sharp wit and vivid imagination.” (Kelley Armstrong on Dead Witch Walking)

“A fun mystery set in an interesting contemporary world where supernatural beings live out in the open, if not totally accepted.” (Locus on The Good, the Bad, and the Undead)

“Blends the best qualities of Anita Blake and Stephanie Plum. . . . Kim Harrison carries it off with style.” (Jim Butcher)

“[A]n unforgettable supernatural mystery with bite.” (Romantic Times BOOKclub)

From the Back Cover

Some wounds take time to heal . . . and some scars never fade.

Rachel Morgan, kick-ass witch and bounty hunter, has taken her fair share of hits, and has broken lines she swore she would never cross. But when her lover was murdered, it left a deeper wound than Rachel ever imagined, and now she won't rest until his death is solved . . . and avenged. Whatever the cost.

Yet the road to hell is paved with good intentions, and when a new predator moves to the apex of the Inderlander food chain, Rachel's past comes back to haunt her.

Literally.

Format: Hardcover
Rachel Morgan has a rough life -- short-lived pixies, a vampire roommate, demon marks and smut, and a permanently dead vampire lover whose murder she can't even recall.

And actually, things get even WORSE for her for a time in "White Witch Black Curse," the seventh book in Kim Harrison's Hollows series. This particular chunk of the series pits Rachel against a particularly nasty Inderlander, even as she's faced with a new slew of problems and a new source of loneliness -- now if only the subplot about Kisten had been fleshed out a bit more.

As Rachel struggles to remember who killed Kisten, she and Ivy are called in when Edden's son is nearly beaten to death by a seemingly normal suburban couple. But as they uncover odd details about the couple, Rachel realizes that the woman, Mia is a banshee -- an aura vampire -- and that neither she nor Ivy can hope to prevail against her.

As she searches Mia and her creepy banshee baby, Rachel also is forced to juggle family problems, a ghostly presence, a rotten reputation, and the haunting question of what happened the night Kisten was murdered. But a bad situation rapidly becomes worse when Rachel is unexpectedly shunned -- cut off from the witch community completely -- and an old friend is kidnapped by Al. And there's still that nasty banshee to deal with...

The dust jacket of "White Witch Black Curse" makes it sound like the hunt for Kisten's murderer is the main plot. Well, it isn't what the whole plot is about. While his death (and the emotional turbulence it causes for Rachel) hang over the story like a dying storm cloud, the story is mostly about banshee-hunting and the nasty effects of dealing with demons. Lots of smut, and possible social ostracization.

Although I liked The Outlaw Demon Wails story better than this one, White Witch was improved over it because Maragrite Gavin is back!

Now to the book. Warnings spoilers.

There were a few things that bothered me a little about the book. The resolution to Kisten's death was very disappointing. I won't say who it is but I thought it would be someone important...or actually dangerous.

Lack of Al Rachel teaching. You don't actually see it, just hear about it, vaguely.

There's little seen of Trent, and nothing of Ceri or David.

The things I did love was:

Any part with Al, Rachel and he seem to be getting along very well. They seem to have a uneasy friendship (at least on Rachel's part.) Although I think it's more of a pet/master relationship on Al's part. The interaction between them was hilarious. And finally Ivy meets Al, although Ivy didn't know him at first.

The interactions between Ivy and Rachel. As someone who really thinks they're prefect for each other it's a little disappointing that Rachel has a potential new love interest, but there's more of those tantalising tidbits that Ivy and Rachel might actually get together at the end of the series (fingers crossed.)

The new love interest: I won't say who it is but I can say that I can't wait to see him in the next book.

Jenks: Well anyone who has read this series knows what a hoot he is. But in this book it's mixed with sadness. His wife is dying and he knows it. I really hope that Rachel had find a way to save both Jenks and his wife.

All in all this was a good book, and has left me eagerly waiting for the next.

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.
