In her latest Hollows tale, For a Few Demons More, Rachel unleashes all kinds of undead fury on the greater Cincinnati area when she tries to track down a serial killer. To catch up on the Hollows series so far, and to see the music that has inspired the stories, see below.

From Publishers Weekly

In bestseller Harrison's fifth demon-kicking extravaganza to feature Rachel Morgan, the first in hardcover (after 2006's A Fistful of Charms), the Cincinnati-based bounty hunter and spell caster still possesses "the focus," a 5,000-year-old demon-crafted Were artifact. With the help of her pixie partner Jenks and Detective Glenn, Rachel must deal with demons, the elf Trent Kalamack and master vampire Piscary, who along with angry Weres, struggle for possession of the artifact. Meanwhile, a serial killer is on the loose and Rachel's alpha werewolf pal, David Hue, becomes the prime suspect of the FIB (aka the human-run Federal Inderland Bureau). Action-packed and full of Rachel's persistent erotic ruminations, this titillating tale includes a shocking finale that will leave fans panting for the next installment in the Hollows series.

In many ways, Rachel Morgan's problems come full circle in this fifth installment of the Hallows series. With enemies drawing closer than they ever have before, her palette of choices is fast becoming slim to none. In one power play after the next, Rachel's about to fall behind enemy lines, instead of the one step ahead we've been seeing.

It's back to Cincinnati after her desperate attempt to save her pixie partner's son and her ex-boyfriend, Nick. Rachel harbors a rather nasty curse trapped in a bone prison, the focus, which threatens to twist the realities of Weres and vampires alike, both of whom squabble over it like children. With Trent vying for it, someone killing for it and our favorite demon Al lusting after it, Rachel once again has to find a way to undo another problem forced upon her. As the delicate balance between her and Ivy begins to come to a roiling boil, it's all the earth witch can do to stay this side of good, acceptable magic. With her special blood and desire to help others though, it's near impossible for her to deflect the trouble that comes looking for her with a vengeance. Unable to unload the focus on just anyone, she'll have to decide who's the best choice...and none of them are looking particularly stellar.

The first of Harrison's series to be offered in hardback, it's a worthy installment for it, tipping the scales even further towards excellent. For a Few Demons More wraps up some of the problems that Rachel has been having over the course of the other books while of course unraveling others even further. Trent comes back into play and it's a totally different side of him than readers have read before. Ceri, the powerful ex-demon familiar, shows Rachel just how much she respects her and Rachel's pack mate David takes on a major role.

This installment is hugely important to the series. If you've been losing patience, hold on for just a bit longer, b/c this is where it gets good.

Right. So Trent's getting married to Ellasbeth, and he wants Rachel to work security for the wedding, b/c Lee RVSPed to his Best Man invite. This is a problem, b/c Lee is Al's new familiar in the Ever After, so how's he going to pull off being in Trent's wedding?

An excellent question.

It's also a question that has Trent understandably nervous, and as Rachel is the only person to ever hold her own against Al, Trent wants her in place to handle whatever unknown, yet inevitable, shenanigans Al is planning.

Rachel says, "Hell NO. It's my birthday."

Trent says, "40k."

Rachel says, "Well, maybe . . . but I better not have to wear an ugly dress."

B/c Rachel isn't just working security from the sidelines in a Quen-like capacity, oh no, she's doing it as one of Ellasbeth's bridesmaids.

*giggle snorts*

I hadn't really thought about it before, but a fellow fan of The Hollows commented on one of my status updates on Goodreads that this book is a real turning point for the series. On the one hand, yeah, obviously (b/c the Bad Thing happens in this book).

But there is a LOT more going on than that. Al is in trouble with the demons, and he wants Rachel's help getting out of it. Ceri and Trent finally meet. Rachel upsets the balance of power between the heavy hitting Supes. Skimmer does the other Big Thing . . .

And don't let ALL THE THINGS scare you, b/c unlike True Blood, Season 4's hodgepodge of overwhelming randomness, For a Few Demons More is wonderfully coherent, and by far, the best book in the series up to that point. YEP. This is where it starts getting REALLY good.

This book is a major MAJOR disappointment. Alas, another series bites the dust.

I almost didn't read this book, as I had a sinking feeling, based on the slow downward spiral in the series. Unfortunately, this trend has hit a new low with this book.

The actual plot threads are confusing, overly plotted, in most cases not resolved. Almost all the action takes place off-screen (and reported to us later), while we are treated to a series of lectures about how Rachel should have sex with Ivy. Also, the editor/proofers seem to have taken a couple of days off, as the errors (blue eyes - no - brown eyes; you for your; unneeded words left in when a sentence was rewritten; etc.) were shockingly sprinkled throughout the book - unusual for a series this prominent.

Spoilers alert

This series started out great, but each book fell off a bit. The characters, so interesting in the initial book, just didn't develop.

I'd hoped characters that showed promise but were underdeveloped would blossom, but except for quirky, sudden changes, they remained stock characters. Ivy - the tortured vamp friend with angst coming out her pretty little ears until you want to choke her. Kisten, the weak, needy vamp lover who never gets a chance to develop. Piscary, the evil master vamp - we know he's evil, because people tell us things he does off-screen. Trent, the conscience-free rich elf scientist - is he good? evil? both? David, the stalwart alpha were. - call central casting! Etc.

I'd hoped story arcs would resolve, while allowing characters to become fleshed out. To be blunt, neither of these things happened. The major story arcs just keep arcing like fireworks, while an occasional new element is suddenly plunked down like a dead fish.
