This has to be my favorite of the series. ( )
  CrissyMoss | Aug 14, 2016 |
Book five is such an interesting blend. While it is one of the best in the series, likely the funniest, it is also the most tragic and depressing.

For the characters, a reader gets plenty of page time with their favorites. Al is around quite often but not in the typical fashion and for different reasons. There's the return of an older villain. Trent gets plenty of time on the page, as well, but this book soured my impressions of him. Even after reading all the books now up to book 12, I still feel soured. He turned me off for the first time with this book.

Ivy is here but while I liked her before, her tragedy comes across as a bit irritating and overdone sometimes. She is certainly presented as fragile, but strong at the same time in other ways. Jenks is flying around and as impressive as always with his loyalty, humor, and genuine awesomeness. Kisten as the ultra boyfriend is here with a scene that was so hot to me the book almost started smoldering.

The book excels with it's scenes. The wedding is seriously the funniest part of the series. It couldn't have been written better. I love re-reading it. The boat scene with Kisten was romantic and hot at the same time with a sweetness. Rachel is the ultimate badass - she's vulnerable and sensitive but does what she has to, even if her stomach is a jumble of nerves. She gets to shine here and finally accomplish something she's been itching for since the series started.

For a few demons more digs deeper into the darker, gritty world of vampires. It's always been disturbing and twisted before, but now it's even worse. The true demented history is explored here for both Ivy and Kisten. Ugh. Even if there is much humor in this book, there is a darkness and seriousness to it that's unshakeable.

The series takes a big turning point and things are never the same again. The ending of this book broke my heart. I was getting teary eyed a little the next day at work off and on, and that's nothing compared to actually reading sobering, surprising ending.

I couldn't recommend the book higher if you're a series fan, but there's some emotional brutality waiting that angered me, depressed me, and turned the Hollows world upside down when I read it. With the book keeping its usual marriages of unusual plot arcs and this installment of the series holds consistent action.

Exciting, fierce, inventive, hysterical, and then depressing as hell - For a Few Demons more is an excellent addition to the Hollows family. ( )

ACK! For the second time in one week I've been stunned by the emotional impact of a book. Rachel is in way over her head this time and has reached a turning point. Secrets meant to protect the Focus are coming to light and now were are being killed by an unknown source who wants to possess it. All of Rachel's enemies are moving in at once and things quickly spiral out of control. With the battle lines drawn, she launches desperate plan in a last ditch effort to save the people she loves without losing her soul...or her life.

I'd say that the series has been building up to this moment from the beginning. The last half of the book was so fast paced I growled ever time an interruption took me away from the story. I have a love-hate relationship with books that make me ugly cry. I can't help but appreciate writing that gets me emotionally involved, but it's hard to see characters I've grown to care for suffer. Harrison did a great job with those scenes creating many gut-wrenching moments among the action and usually silliness that accompanies her stories. Grab your kleenex for this one. You're going to need it.

Hammering my fist against the back of my closet wasn't one of my more pleasant dreams.
Quotations
'This is about summoning demons, isn't it?' I said, and he nodded, too fresh-faced to look sage, but trying for it anyway. I leaned against my car, amazed at how the brightest-looking people did the dumbest things. (Rachel, chapter 16)

Book description
Despite dating one vampire and living with another, Rachel Morgan has always managed to stay just ahead of trouble ... until now.

A fiendish serial killer stalks the Hollows, and no none living in or around Cincinnati - human, inhuman, or undead - is safe.

An ancient artifact may be the key to stopping the murderer - a mysterious relic that is now in the hands of Rachel Morgan, fearless independent bounty hunter and reckless witch. But revealing it could ignite a battle to the death among the vast and varied local supernatural races.

Rachel's' been lucky so far. But even she can't hide from catastrophe forever.
