Sept. 26, 2012, update: Uh oh...if you bought "A Perfect Blood" by Kim Harrison in hardcover, she put an extra chapter from Trent's point if view in the just released mass market paperback. Supposedly viewable for free on publisher site (link not there yet), at Barnes and Noble at http://www.barnesandnoble.com/sample/read/9780061957901 (not on flash device right now so cannot check link), and presumably will show up other places.

Clueless how to review this one without spoilers. I'll just say was an excellent, rollicking read and still surprising. 10th book in The Hollows series; and, frankly, there are not exactly a lot of series out there that even three books into I am still giving 5 stars. Pre-ordered without even waiting for this to hit library or paperback and well worth it. I think I would take maybe an eighth of a star away for still not having a big romance although we still get teasers and it's a bit strange having a whole new group of bad guys and potential good guy organizations thrown in -- but will reserve judgment until next book (I think I saw somewhere there were 3 more books to series but not sure if that was before or after the publication of this one?).

I'm feeling generous... 3 ½ Stars. ( )

Really enjoyed the latest addition to the hollows series. Most of the book was taken up on Rachel's struggle with keeping or removing the silver band. And finally she accepts herself! It only took 10 books!

I did like the addition of a new big bad in the human hate group, HAPA. I love the new characters and hope to see more of Wayde, Winona and Emojin.

Could have used more Al but I understand why that wasn't possible. ( )

Synopsis: Al, and the other demons, think that Rachel is dead. The silver bracelet she's wearing has turned off her powers leaving her vulnerable to practically everyone. She's also not very good at allowing her body guard to actually do his job, nor does she trust Trent to help her regain her powers. Into this mix come personal frustrations, the re-emergence of HAPA, the head of IS abusing a living vampire, and the head of FIB inserting herself in an ongoing investigation. And then there are the-men-who-don't-belong.
Review: One of the best by Harrison, this book adds a whole new set of characters while letting established characters 'get on with their lives'. The HAPA mole was rather obvious. ( )

An enjoyable adventure not quite as good as Pale Demon. This review will be about this book, eventually, but I wanted to say that, looking back, I'm surprised by how much I like the book before this in the series. I didn't expect much out of a roadtrip book, and got much more than I expected.

So . . . this book was decent, and I'm really trying to evaluate it on its own merits. Left with the problems created in the last book, Rachel is forced to live a life without leyline magic or face her demon heritage. New factions rising up only complicate things.

Things I liked
-How the elf children are changing Trent. For a character I really disliked early on, Trent has become a favorite character of mine, independent of series. Like Kelley Armstrong's Eve, Trent very rarely lets morality impede his protection of those he loves.
-Rachel making noises suggesting she is coming to accept what she is. Progress is good, but get on with it already!
-Ivy has a great storyline, trying to help another living vampire that's fallen victim to a senior, undead vamp.

Things I didn't care for
-Really, Rachel, you're still whining about the same crap? I know you have to preserve characterization, but let's grow the eff up a little faster. Please? I'm trying to cope and failing.

Book description
Ritually murdered corpses are appearing across Cincinnati, terrifying amalgams of human and other. Pulled in to help investigate by the I.S. and the FIB, former witch turned day-walking demon Rachel Morgan soon realizes a horrifying truth: a human hate group is trying to create its own demons to destroy all Inderlanders, and to do so, it needs her blood.

She's faced vampires, witches, werewolves, demons, and more, but humanity itself might be her toughest challenge yet.
Haiku summary
