FOR A FEW DEMONS MORE by Kim Harrison [Review]
I’m continuing to work my way through Kim Harrison’s The Hollows/Rachel Morgan series, and I’m up to the fifth book, For a Few Demons More. The books are about Rachel, witch and bounty hunter, who lives in a church with her partners—Ivy, a vampire, and Jenks and the rest of his pixy family. It’s a few months after the gang’s spring road trip to Mackinaw, and they’re back in Cincinnati with the Focus. The problem is that a power struggle is brewing because both the vampires and the werewolves want the creepy demon-made Were artifact. Things get worse when Glenn asks Rachel to consult with the FIB on the murders of several female Weres. Rachel suspects someone is killing the Weres to get to the Focus, and it’s up to her to stop them and get rid of the thing for good.
As usual, Rachel is dealing with a few other headaches as well. She wakes up one morning to find the insane demon Newt in her church. A demon on sanctified ground shouldn’t be possible, but Newt doesn’t seem to follow the rules. Rachel’s nemesis, Trent Kalamack, also returns and wants to hire Rachel to work security at his wedding. She reacts about as well as you would expect.
I really started to LOVE this series during A Fistful of Charms, and For a Few Demons More just sealed the deal. So much happens in this book! I think I’m still reeling from it all. The story is jam-packed with action and stunning developments. Characters make shocking decisions and develop even more complex relationships. There were even a few parts that were so emotional that I was close to tears. For a Few Demons More is just a superb entry in what has become one of my favorite urban fantasy series.
I listened to the audiobook version of For a Few Demons More, which is narrated by the amazing Marguerite Gavin. She really captures Rachel’s voice—sometimes she’s a total smartass and sometimes she’s vulnerable—which can’t be easy. The other character voices are fantastic too—Ivy’s voice is low and sultry, Jenks’ voice is high pitched, Al has a British accent—and it made the audiobook so much fun to listen to.
If you haven’t yet discover Kim Harrison’s highly addictive series, start with the first book, Dead Witch Walking.
