Very disappointed in this book. Had this been the first book of the series that I had read, I wouldn't ever purchase the remainder of the series. Definitely needed better editing - too much stuff in here that doesn't even make sense, not even when in a dialogue. For example, to compare how unlike the texture of Kisten's skin had been to the pool table's wood trim? Huh? Rachel's constant lamenting of, "Oh no, how could I have done this to myself?" was irritating by the third time I read it, but unfortunately, it continued on and on and on throughout the whole book. I don't know, maybe it was just filler to lengthen the book. And really, does Rachel have to think a whole mini synopsis of the book while she's playing pool with Wayde? Not to mention, why was Wayde even in this book? He was not what I would call a needed character since his sparring with Rachel wasn't even lukewarm at best, he wasn't allowed to do his job, so why was he even there? Plus, he's too much of an omega werewolf in his responses - actually he acted like he had been neutered and dominated. The unending angst made me want to throw the book against the wall. I started reading this series when the first book, Dead Witch Walking came out, and I loved it. The humor, the camaraderie of the three friends is so crucial to this series, but apparently Jenks has been relegated to nothing more than an annoying flying gnat (since when does he need everyone telling him what to do, when before he always knew what to do and was thinking three steps ahead of Rachel), and Ivy's character seems to put in an occasional glimpse simply to remind us that she used to a major part of the series, but no longer. And Glenn? Way to neuter a character. And what happened to Bis, who is supposed to be bonded to Rachel? As for the humor which is what made me fall in love with the characters - it's long gone. This series has been in a constant decline ever since White Witch, Black Curse, which when I read it, I honestly thought it was written by someone else. I've tried to stay loyal to the series, but I'm not sure I can.

    Too wimpy and whiney!

    KIM,you and your writer need a dose of testosterone big time. Rachel has to much self doubt and pity. With what she has been through she needs to suck it up and be a heroine.

    Disappointed

    This will probably be the last book of Kim Harrison's I buy. I am so tired of reading about how Rachel scews up just so the author can have a duh moment to turn around for the inevitable happy ending. Either let Rachel become the tough demon who knows her stuff or kill her off already! I mean really! She can take on demons, just not a bunch of bigoted scientists? How can you take this character serious after being beat down like she does in this book. Talk really is cheap.

    Not so fast! This is a book I pre-ordered months ago. I love the series. I should amend that to say I loved the series. This story was slow. My recommendation would be to wait for paperback or better yet just borrow from a friend or library. Not her best work.

    Not up to par

    I have been in love with this series from the go, talking it up to friends and sharing all the hardcovers I had spent money on, until this book. Jenks is a wuss, Ivy is absent, Al is neutered and Rachel is whiny and childlike. Ouch, I know, but reality bites sometimes. Harrison needs to step it up next time or risk loosing a major amount of fans.

    The series hasn't been the same since Kisten's death. Reminds me of what happened to Laurel K. Hamilton's since her divorce, when many people speculated (including myself) that it had been her ex writing the books that began the whole Anita Blake's series.

    I'm not comparing Ms. Harrison. She would totally have to trash Rachel to compare her to Anita.
