Book Description

“I wouldn’t miss a Kim Harrison book for anything.”
—Charlaine Harris

There’s nothing more darkly satisfying than time spent in the Hollows—New York Times bestseller Kim Harrison’s alternate urban fantasy Cincinnati where vampires, pixies, and werewolves roam free. Harrison takes us back in A Perfect Blood, as former bounty hunter witch-turned-reluctant daywalking demon Rachel Morgan investigates a series of ritual murders, only to discover to her horror that whomever—or whatever—is responsible is actually seeking her blood.  Rachel’s sexy, supernatural adventures have consistently landed atop bestseller lists from coast-to-coast, and A Perfect Blood is no exception—another supremely satisfying excursion to a deliciously eerie fantasy realm that’s certain to delight Kim Harrison’s voracious army of fans…not to mention Laurell K. Hamilton, Charlaine Harris, Jim Butcher, Kelley Armstrong, Patricia Briggs, and Stephanie Meyers aficionados, and any reader who craves a walk on the wild, dark side.



Editorial Reviews

Review

“Harrison’s colorful cast of supporting characters keeps the story moving among the fast-paced action scenes. Longtime fans will obviously be standing in line for this one. However, readers with any interest in urban fantasy can easily jump into the story.” (Library Journal)

“With the end of this popular series coming soon, fans will be savoring the remaining episodes all the more, and those who have delayed entry will begin jumping on board.” (Booklist)

“The pace and tone of A Perfect Blood reflects its protagonist: a little more cautious, reflective and purposeful, and the book is more powerful as a result…Harrison provides the strongest and most self-assured Rachel we’ve seen yet.” (Miami Herald)

“Kim Harrison has created a popular series that captures the imagination.” (North County Times)

From the Back Cover

Ritually murdered corpses are appearing across Cincinnati, terrifying amalgams of human and other.

Pulled in by the FIB to help investigate, former witch-turned-day-walking demon Rachel Morgan soon realizes a horrifying truth: others want to create their own demons, and to do so they need her blood.

She’s faced vampires, witches, werewolves, demons, and more—but this time Rachel’s toughest challenge might be humanity itself.

*tiny spoiler

At the end of Pale Demon, Trent sagely outlines to Rachel the danger of rendering herself helpless in the midst of so many enemies. Brought back from the brink of death after kicking Ku'Sox's butt, and nearly losing her aura by unwittingly carving out a new ley line that has devastating effects in the everafter, Rachel has some tough choices to make. Will she try to live her life without her demon enhanced abilities? Can she? Can she even go back to being an earth witch?

Harrison smartly leads with this thought in A Perfect Blood where Rachel will reap the consequences of her all decisions...good and bad, to finally realize that with great power, comes great responsibility. With one charmed Elven bracelet, Rachel chooses to effectively cut herself off from the scrutiny of the demon collective, ley lines...even Al thinks she's dead. After the fracas in San Francisco, even the Inderlander government has her declared dead. But has she chosen wisely?

When a deep-seated cell of HAPA (Humans Against Paranormals Association) embarks on a sinister quest to tinker with witch blood carrying the Rosewood syndrome and develop an unearthly weapon against all Inderlander species, Rachel and the gang are up against a foe that will stop at nothing to bring humans back on top of the food chain. While Rachel's past incursions have mostly been personal, HAPA's threat spells doom for all Inderlanders and if they succeed it would make the Elf/Demon war look like a walk in the park compared to the death and destruction that would reign down in the Hollows and everywhere else.

This pronounced intensity rages throughout A Perfect Blood, honing the point home that everything is at risk, and Rachel's final decision about her destiny will be the ultimate game changer.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Small Step for Rachel December 14, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This book takes place about 5 months after Pale Demon. I truly loved Pale Demon I thought it reinvigorated the series really brought in some great ideas and plot lines. However I felt that A Perfect Blood was sort of a staging novel. Kim Harrison used it to set up a bunch of things to come in other books. Things like : Rachel's life once she truly accepts being a demon, a possible new relationship with Trent (what kind we don't know) and conflict (?) with old friends Ivy and Jenks.

However Rachel is still Rachel. Untrusting, leading with her gut not her head, lonely, and still getting beat up all the time (actually that is kind of amusing). I really want Rachel to grow out of the "woe is me" phase and doing things that just don't make any sense. She should group up a little (which admittedly she does a tiny tiny bit in this book)

I gave this book 3 stars b/c although there was some action and plot there really wasn't too much advancement it was all just set up for the future. The Hollows fans will still enjoy it but don't expect it to be as good as Pale Demon.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lots of frustration to get through to the good stuff! November 24, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have to admit that I was rather disenchanted with the repetition the series was taking on for the first 6 or 7 books. After reading Pale Demon, five stars in my opinion, I was completely reinvigorated and couldn't wait to see where A Perfect Blood was going to take us, and after reading it, I guess my answer is actually, not very far. After everything that went down in the 9th book, I was dying to see if Rachel and Trent would finally develop a friendship or how Al would react if he finds out Rachel is alive, or if she was going to embrace her powers and try to save Pierce, or even what the impact would be when Ivy acknowledged that they were on different paths, and to be fair, some of this is addressed, but the way it was addressed was either frustrating or somewhat anticlimactic and the book as a whole took a completely different direction.

Several months after defeating Kusox, Rachel is struggling to adjust with her new life as a demon. Declared deceased, she has no laws to protect her, she can't get her new car registered or her driver's license renewed, and she needs a body guard since she's wearing a bracelet that strips her of her demonic power. When Interlander Security recruits Rachel for an investigation that hits a little too close to home, Rachel takes it personally. A group called HAPA, Humans Against Paranormal Association, are trying to genetically create demons for their blood to spell the supernatural world into extinction and they're modeling Rachel to do this, targeting witches who are carriers of Rosewood Syndrome. Even though Rachel is nearly defenseless, not having her witch or demon powers, she stubbornly gets involved, forcing two agencies to work together, and learns some very hard lessons along the way.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not up to her usual standards. . . . February 24, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have been a huge fan of every book in this series and eagerly awaited the release of this one. I'm still trying to decide if the editing was really bad or the story just too slow. There were several instances where things were explained to the reader multiple times as if we hadn't just read about it two chapters earlier. And way, way, way too many "bunny-earred kiss-kisses". Rachel spent two thirds of the book wishing she had her magic back, but the anticipated ass-kicking she wanted to do never happened. She was just as helpless after she got her magic back and still had to be rescued! Every other book, I wonder how Rachel is going to save the day and she always pulls something crazy and surprising out of thin air. This one, there was no anticipation, just a lot of strange unfinished dialogue that didn't go anywhere.

Kindle Price
Even if the Kindle price does come down once the book is released, why is it so inflated from the start? Cahlua_au is right - there are way fewer expenses associated with creating an e-book and it's the more responsible, environmentally-friendly way to sell books. This is deeply disappointing

Although I don't know this to be true, it seems that the publishers are playing on your interest. This seems to be a very popular publisher method. Release the kindle edition later, hoping that your curiosity will get the better of you and you will just buy the hardcover edition. I don't play... Read more
