Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This sixth offering of outlaw witch turned bounty hunter, Rachel Morgan, offers the typical Harrison yarn filled with some good laughs and the odd thrill to boot. Gigi Birmingham taps into the comedic undertones, be it the sarcasm so common to Morgan's twisted personality or simply the everyday woman aspect of the tale, thereby capturing the character's essence perfectly. As believable as she is as this generally unbelievable character, Birmingham knows exactly when to amp up the tension and captivate the listener. Always entertaining and quite likable in the title role, Birmingham offers a splendid reading of Harrison's eccentric protagonist.

From Booklist

The fifth book in the Hollows series puts witch and former bounty hunter Rachel Morgan in still more trouble. The demon’s bargain she made a few books back left her vulnerable to demon attacks, and now someone, probably a demon, is trying to kill her. In trying to locate and trap the killer, she has to dig into much more of the past than she ever wanted to know about. Then there are her gentlemen (men?) friends. Rachel’s mother wants her to find a nice guy of some species and settle down. But Rachel is looking at all the problems too many of her friends have with significant others and doesn’t want to lengthen her own quandary list. Harrison’s characterization is as intricate, and her plot as intriguing, as in her previous books. It’s easy to see why she’s so popular among fantasy and romance fans. However, newcomers to the series should begin with the first, Dead Witch Walking (2004). --Frieda Murray --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
Over the course of five Hollows novels, Harrison has teased and alluded to readers about Rachel Morgan's true heritage. Is she really a witch? What did Trent's father exactly do to her DNA? Why does Ceri never let on about what she knows regarding Rachel's unusual talent in kindling demon magic? How is it related to Trent's research for the elf race? Why do demons gravitate towards her as if they have an ulterior motive? Why? Because they do!

Finally, Harrison lets the cat out of the bag in a big way...but she doesn't give it to us all in one big enchilada. The entire meat of the book is a lead in to what we have been waiting for but we stop a few times, glean more along the way.

Two main aspects to this latest tale that stand out significantly are: 1)there is more of a presence and focus on family ties both from Rachel's true family and her urban Hollows one i.e., Rachel's mom has a very dark secret related to Rachel's father, Keasley is revealed, Quen is in dire trouble, Rynn Cormel, the charismatic new Cincy vampire master makes an appearance, Ivy and Rachel come to an agreement of sorts with their blood balance, David the Were appears more nurturing, the addition of Marshal (the witch from Mackinaw Island) provides a potential new love interest, and Ceri...well she's got a bun in the oven from an unlikely source and 2) Rachel's true heritage.

It even gets more complicated and spicier as the search for Kisten's killer ensues, Trent asks Rachel to go on a mission to the Ever-After so that she can retrieve a piece of ancient Elven DNA-that might be able to repair the damage that the demons wrought in the last war.

There's no doubt about it. Harrison has done it again and raised the stakes ever higher with her latest and greatest Hallows book. It's hard to believe this is only book six; it feels like Rachel's character has been with us forever and she only gets more "real" as the series continues. As surely as Rachel twists curses to get herself out of yet another sore spot, Harrison is twisting readers into an absolute fit of excitement with her wicked way with words.

The Outlaw Demon Wails wastes no time and swings into the demon action with the very first chapter. With a trio of sneezes from Rachel, Al's back in crushed green velvet and as ready to wreak havoc as ever. It's October and as the Hallows and Cincinatti residents prepare for the week-long Halloween festivities, Rachel is once again fending off Al's rigorously murderous attentions. Someone is letting him lose from his ever-after jail cell and Rachel has to find out who has it in for her enough to do so. The list of possibilities is long, to say the least. And suddenly, not only is Rachel in danger, but everyone she loves and cares about are too. With guilt and heartache weighing heavily on her with Kisten's demise, not to mention more than one shocking family secret, Rachel is mentally and physically tired. And when a desperate witch just can't take anymore, she'll do anything to save those she loves.

I'd been hearing that at one time this was to be the end of the series, and therefore we'd be seeing a lot of the subplots wrapped up with this installment (even though Harrison's contract has now been extended--which hey, is awesome!). Frankly, I don't agree that that many of them were really wrapped up enough to truly put away.

I enjoyed Kim Harrison books when they first came out. I was looking for more romance, but the story line was great so I bypassed that. I then fell in love with the books when I started to listen to them on my mp3 player. The old narrator, Marguerite Gavin, did such a great job of bringing Rachel to life. I felt more like I knew all of the characters completely and I was just a bystander in their life.

With this latest book, the narrator has changed. Her name is Gigi Birmingham. I HATE HOW SHE READS RACHEL!!!! The first 10-15 minutes into the audiobook I noticed that Gigi reads rachel like she is a 16 or 17 year old. It doesn't help that the first scene is rachel with her mother, that just increased "rachels" (gigi's) childlike behavior and manner of speaking. Also, Gigi makes Jenks voice really high pitch. It doesn't sound right. PLUS, SHE MISPRONOUNCES WORDS. Having listened to the first 5 books read by Marguerite Gavin, I may have become accustomed to the mispronouced words. Hearing Gigi pronouce them differently, DRIVES ME UP THE WALL. She can't even say the word adult right, she completely butchers Piscary's and Takata's names. I may just be used to the way that margeurite said them, but there should be some fluidity between the 6 books, and pronounciation should be fluid between them all. I am totally disheartened at how this new narrator just does not get Rachel and has totally portrayed her incorrectly. I will not purchase the next audiobook if Gigi reads it again. The narrator makes or breaks a book, Gigi mutilated this one. I think I am going to stop listening to the audio and read the book instead, maybe I will enjoy the book better.
