I like the Ivy/Rachel relationship in the story but that falls flat, it's a tease, it's like the author just dropped it all together for a more conventional romance.
The biggest problem I had with this book is the last part of the book. I felt that the author brought in a character, Nick, just to bring in a typical romance hero good, appearing, guy, who Rachel falls for instantly and trusts without reservation. I just felt that introduction of the character brought strong confident Rachel to be a weak kneed romance heroine. I believe that Harrison can remedy that in the next book, and I'm looking forward to it.
I would strongly recommend this book because it will be a part of a series and the world is solid, the characters with the exception of Nick, are all strong and worth the time to get invested in them.
Rachel, along with her partner Ivy and Jenks, must break free of their IS contracts, start their own buisness, and just try to survive day to day life, without bitting one another, or placing spells on one another. They must fight those whose only goal in life is to get richer, like Trent, and those that want to see them fail.
The characters are greatly developed, and have actual depth. The plot is easy to understand and in the end, everything is wrapepd up, just in time for "Every Which Way But Dead", "The Good, The Bad, and The Undead","A Fistful of Charms", and "For a Few Demons More".
Though the end of the series appears to wrap itself up, we can only hope that Kim will take pen to paper again, and continue writing this series, through a book 6.
It was one of those books where you know it's 3 a.m. and you have to get to work at 8 a.m. but hell, just one more chapter, right? Wrong! Warning: This book can keep you up all night! It took 2 days to read thanks to such interuptions as work, sleep, and other inconviences.
I love the way Harrison writes, the story doesn't drag despite the fact that she has so much information to inpart on a new world she's created for us. It's fun to read, the characters are likeable (some not) and realistic. It's not a story of happy endings and it does end with a not so subtle "be the continued" but if you like serial novels such as Stephanie Plum and Anita Blake where the stories flow from one book to another you'll love this book. It's imaginative, creative, funny, and makes you beg for the next installment.
I'm not going to pretend that the book's premises are spectacularly original. Harrison's world is one where magic and the occult were always there, but until a bio-engineered virus wiped out half of the 'normal' folk, the occult world stayed carefully hidden. Now it is a world divided - in this case the normals live in Cincinnati proper and the 'spooks' live across the river in The Hollows. The Hollows is part of the Interland, where technology and medicine are suspect and you never know when you might get hit with a bad spell. Interland Security spends its time hunting down ill-behaved vampires, werewolves who shift out of season, and black magicians.
Rachel Morgan is a police runner down on her luck and not getting a lot of respect from her management. She's been relegated to second-rate assignments and only a down and out pixie will work at her side. Instructed to bring in a blackmailing leprechaun she gets offered three wishes and decides it's time to go independent. To her surprise Ivy, an unturned Vampire and expert runner, and Jenks, a pixie with a strong case of obnoxious attitude, decide to join her. This infuriates Rachel's ex-boss, and he takes out a contract on her.Read more ›

I bought this book and I really thought it would be a good book. Did not like it. Normally I finish every book I start. I gave up SPOILER ALERT when Ivy almost bit her.Published on May 22 2013 by red1cutie
This is an interesting read with compelling characters. I love fantasy books, especially dark fantasy about vampires, werewolves and the such. Read morePublished on Feb. 26 2009 by Cindy
I borrowed this series from the library because it was touted as being similar to Jim Butcher's and Laurell K. Hamilton's. Well, there is similar, and then there is stealing! Read morePublished on May 21 2007 by Angelo
I would equate this novel with the first X Men film. It was good, but most of the story was spent on introducing characters and settings for future sequels instead of on plot. Read morePublished on July 9 2004 by A. R. Hinton
Normally I don't write a review for a book, but this one deserves high praise. I read the entire book from my grandparents home in North Carolina to my home in Kentucky. Read morePublished on July 5 2004
