That was fantastic! ( )

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.

This was one of my least favorite of the books. i just couldn't get in to the story of the banshee and with the flash backs a Rachel tries to remember the death of a friend. It just lacked the energy that the other novels have. ( )

3.5*s - Too much Ivy/Rachel drama again. I really was hoping we had finished with that after the last book but it was back here. The last quarter or so when the demons and elves finally show up redeemed it for me. ( )

White Witch, Black Curse (Rachel Morgan Series #7) RATING: 2.5 stars
 
ATENÇÃO: SPOILERS DE LIVROS ANTERIORES!
 
E... mais um livro em que a Rachel anda de um lado para o outro mas faz muito pouco. Mais um livro em que a Rachel se ilude e diz a si própria que não é uma bruxa negra. Mais um livro cheio de drama devido à relação tensa entre a Rachel e a Ivy. E no meio temos o Jenks com os seus 500.000 filhos.
 
Neste livro, como em todos os outros, acontece muito pouco (e lá estou eu a escrever isto outra vez). Aliás, parece que acontece mais entre livros do que nos livros. Este sétimo livro abre com Rachel cheia de problemas, porque foi afastada da sociedade das bruxas e é agora a estudante do demónio Algaliarept. Para além disso começa a recordar-se de pormenores da morte do seu namorado.
 
E mais, aparece uma nova raça de sobrenaturais, as banshees. Poderia ter dado uma história interessante mas nunca se torna interessante porque rapidamente o mistério é resolvido e porque nunca percebemos muito bem as motivações da banshee vilã. Também aparece uma gárgula, mas é-lhe dada pouca importância. Só gostei das últimas páginas, em que a Rachel e o Trent vão para o ever-after. 
 
Achei este livro um pouco parado e pouco imaginativo. O drama foi apenas uma repetição dos livros anteriores e para uma série que vive do drama e das personagens, isto fez com que o livro fosse muito menos viciante do que os outros.
 
No geral, continua a ser uma série fácil de ler, mas este livro ficou aquém dos restantes. Em termos de desenvolvimento do mundo e das características sobrenaturais do mesmo a série "The Hollows" deixa um pouco a desejar (pois o desenvolvimento é quase nulo), mas continua ser de leitura compulsiva.

Epigraph
Dedication
To the guy who finishes my sentences and gets my jokes. Even the lame ones.
First words
The bloody handprint was gone, wiped from Kisten's window but not from my memory, and it ticked me off that someone had cleaned it, as if they were trying to steal what little recollection I retained about the night he'd died.

Book description
From Booklist
Hell hath no fury like witch and bounty hunter Rachel Morgan when it comes to avenging her lover’s murder. Her quest for justice holds some significant realizations for her, too, such as the strength in her bond with vamp partner Ivy, who helps her withstand the waves of power coursing through her body in one of the book’s most emotionally gripping scenes. Through a welter of vampires, demons, pixies, and witches, Harrison conducts readers on a suspenseful, satisfying journey of payback, personal growth, and empowerment while setting the scene for Rachel’s new romance, which will probably commence in the next of this spellbinding series. --Whitney Scott
-------------------------------------

From the back:
Kick-ass bounty hunter and withc Rachel Morgan has crossed forbidden lines, taken demonic hits, and still stands. But the death of her lover struck her harder than she ever thought possible. She won't rest until his murder is solved...and avenged.

But a new predator is moving to the apex of the Inderlander food chain - and now Rachel's past is coming back to haunt her.

Literally.
