Another fun romp with Rachel. She's a hoot, but Jenks continually steals the show. As usual, no one can get into more trouble than Rachel, but she's beginning to handle it better, as she should after 8 previous books of practice. Still, the excitement was right up there & the character interactions were great.

This is definitely a series you want to read in order & it's worth it. Possibly the best UF fantasy of those I'm still reading. Definitely more complex than Sookie, no porn like Anita Blake, & a constantly developing world to top it all off. Can't wait to get the next one. ( )

I get serious satisfaction from reading these books about Rachel Morgan. She is always getting into ridiculously difficult situations and there's a lot of creativity involved in resolving all the conflict. This is book...9?...and the series is still fresh and wonderful to read. The characters actually change and grow as the series progresses, and already I'm looking forward to book 10. What will Rachel do next?! Awesome! ( )

I love the whole hollows series. Rachel, Ivy and Jenks pull it off time and time again. Magic, mystery and danger follow them where ever they go.

Harrison just keepings getting better. Fantastic series for people who like urban fantasy but find the sexual overload necessary. I look forward to each and every book.

Rachel has to really learn trust and acceptance in this book. As her power grows her sense of responsibility grows. Fantastic addition to the series. ( )

ROAD TRIP! Pack your bags and fasten your seat belts, it's gonna get freaky! Pale Demon by Kim Harrison is the 9th book in The Hollows series. It has all the charm, action, fun, and snarkiness that all the other books in the series have.

With everyone stuck in a car together, there's a lot of interaction between the ones making the trip - Rachel, Ivy, Trent, and Jenks. Although with ley line jumping, plenty of other characters get in the mix. They may even pick up a hitchhiker or two. The intense forced closeness of a car journey brought out a lot of bickering, but also some surprise revelations about the characters. They couldn't help but do a bit of bonding.

The story is full of demons, pixy dust, and Rachel's trademark experimental magic. In my opinion, this book is better than the last. Kim Harrison never disappoints! ( )

I have to say this is probably my favorite of the series. I haven't been a fan of Ivy & Rachel in the past but I found their big scenes in this one to be very emotional. So much is revealed about Trent, Rachel and the demons (most importantly the demonesses). It did start out a little slow but once the revelations stated coming, and the plot really picked up, it kept the pace up until the end. It's hard to say a series reaches a turning point after 9 books but for me the end of this one definitely represents a potential turning point in the series. Both for Rachel and for many other characters. ( )
