Read the First Two Chapters of PALE DEMON by Kim Harrison

Fans of Kim Harrison’s The Hollows (Rachel Morgan) series are going to want to drop what they’re doing right now and immediately head on over to her blog where she has posted an excerpt (Chapter 1 and Chapter 2) from Pale Demon. The ninth book in the series finds Rachel, Ivy, Jenks, and Trent (yep, Trent) on a road trip to the witches convention in San Francisco. Harrison says the point of throwing Rachel and Trent together on a road trip was to explore their relationship and see if they can actually get along. She says, “what evolved surprised even me.” How’s that for a teaser?

Pale Demon will be released on February 22, 2011.

Synopsis of Pale Demon by Kim Harrison:

Condemned to death for black magic and shunned, Rachel Morgan has three days to somehow get to the annual witches convention in San Francisco and clear her name. If she fails, the only way she can escape death is to live in the demonic ever after . . . for ever after.

Banned from the flight lists, Rachel teams up with elven tycoon Trent Kalamack, headed for the West Coast for his own mysterious business. But Rachel isn’t the only passenger along for the ride. Can a witch, an elf, a living vampire, and a pixy in one car survive for over 2,300 miles? And that’s not counting the assassin on their tail.

A fearsome demon walks the sunlight, freed after centuries of torment to slay the innocent and devour souls. But his ultimate prey is Rachel Morgan. While the powerful witch with nerves of steel will do whatever it takes to stay alive, even embracing her own demonic nature may not be enough to save her.

UPDATE 1/18/2011: Chapter 3 is now available as well!
