I really liked this book! I am quickly discovering that I am enjoying this series more and more with each book I read. Rachel has been through a lot and at this point in the series, I am pretty invested in seeing things work out for her. Unfortunately, it seems that she just can’t catch a break so this was another installment full of excitement that made it hard to step away from the book. I am so glad that I am finally making my way through this incredibly entertaining series.

So Rachel has a few things that she needs to work out in this installment. She is still trying to learn what really happened to Kisten and she is determined to find out what it is that she can’t seem to remember regarding his death. When she hears that Glenn has been injured, she wants to find out what happened to her friend within the FIB. Before you know it she is up against an almost impossible force, a banshee. Throw in more problems with Al, a ghost from her past, and some surprises in her family and there are plenty of things to keep Rachel, Jenks, and Ivy more than a little busy.

I had no idea how Rachel would deal with everything going on in this book. I felt so frustrated for her because she is constantly putting herself at risk to protect others and society seems to want to punish her for her efforts. There were some pretty exciting scenes in this book and Rachel found herself in a heap of trouble more than once. I have a strong feeling that a lot of the things that happened in this installment will have a big impact on future books.

Marguerite Gavin was back to narrate this installment in the series. I have to admit that I was really happy to hear her version of Jenks and the rest of the gang, along with pronunciations that were consistent with the early books in the series after listening to a different narrator for the previous book. I thought that she did a fabulous job with this book and really helped to bring the story to life.

I would recommend this series to others. It is quickly becoming a favorite but I would definitely recommend that it be read in order. This was an exciting story that helped to move the series along and kept me glued to my headphones. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series. ( )

She likes a lot of dudes in this book... Bit much but oh so entertaining... ( )

A bit blah in the series but it ended with a bang. I couldn't believe that I got halfway through this "sexy witch" book without a sex scene. I may have to start the series over because I think I've lost track of all the demonology at this point. ( )

Fun fluff getting a bit more complex now. ( )

I've been rereadingthe first 7 books in tbis series in an effort to complete the series. I'm now caught up and ready to finish the rest of the series.
This book continues the theme of Rachel and Ivy maturing and making different choices. I hope we are done with the Kisten grief withthis book as well
'The Morgan books seem to be getting better and better thought I have to admit I am not entirely sure where she is going with series.' original review ( )

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.
