Kim Harrison, author of the genre-blending Hollows saga featuring sexy earth witch and bounty hunter Rachel Morgan (A Fistful of Charms, Every Which Way but Dead, et al.), celebrates the monumental first hardcover release in the series with a truly blockbuster installment that is sure to satisfy fantasy, mystery, and romance fans alike.
Morgan's already complicated personal life -- living in an old church in the Hollows of Cincinnati with vampire Ivy Tamwood and a pixie named Jenks -- turns downright chaotic when an insane demon inexplicably ransacks her home, a mysterious murderer begins a brutal killing spree, and her best friend, Ivy, suddenly packs up and moves out. After vampiric crime boss Piscary and villainous councilman Trent Kalamack learn about a demon-crafted artifact in Morgan's possession, she becomes the unwilling focus of an otherworldly power struggle that will change her forever -- and leave more than a few major characters dead!
While the sensually and supernaturally charged Rachel Morgan saga will obviously appeal to fans of authors like Laurell K. Hamilton, Charlaine Harris, and Christine Feehan, Harrison's razor-sharp wit and wicked sense of humor make these novels perfect reading material for those who enjoy fast-paced, offbeat whodunits like Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum novels, Madelyn Alt's Bewitching Mystery sequence, et al. If one single item from For a Few Demons More perfectly epitomized the attitude and ambiance of Harrison's novels, it would have to be Rachel Morgan's butt-kicking knee-high leather boots -- or maybe her edible lingerie… Paul Goat Allen
