To save the lives of her friends, Rachel did the unthinkable: she willingly trafficked in forbidden demon magic. And now her sins are coming home to haunt her.

As Rachel searches for the truth behind a terrifying murder, an even greater menace threatens, for the demon Algaliarept will stop at nothing to claim her, and the discovery of a shocking family secret throws Rachel's entire life into question. If she is ever to live free, Rachel must first walk willingly into the demonic ever-after in search of long-lost ancient knowledge.

But when you dance with demons, you lay your soul on the line . . . and there are some lines that should never be crossed.

Unlike another genre author I won't mention, Kim Harrison's books keep getting better. Kudos to her for never being a lazy writer!

This series is steadily improving. Less "oh, woe is me!" and more "it's about time I grew up and stopped being an idiot". The main character finally starts taking some responsibility for her actions. Not completely, but getting there.

6 books in, and we've probably just gotten the best entry in this series. KH ties up many of the dangling threads from previous entries...and almost none of them in the obvious or expected way. in fact, it's solid enough that you would feel almost ok with the series ending on this book. while still being all about the character interactions, this one is non-stop action: when i went to bed at 3am the first night i spent with this book, it was only because of a chapter break, not because a good stopping point had appeared. the whole series is highly recommended.

Despite my complaints about the last book, Outlaw Demon was actually fairly tight. The stakes are getting pretty high, the reveals about Rachel's family were interesting and tied a lot of the seemingly extraneous plotlines together, and the heretofore-tedious demons have become much more interesting. (Note that none of this excuses the fact that the previous plotlines read as random, boring, or both.) I do not and will not ever love the resolution on the Ivy plotline - it really felt like Harrison had written herself into a corner and needed to find an out that didn't involve Rachel liking girls That Way - but I still like Ivy as a character and am glad she has remained central.

The series has some momentum at this point, despite the average-at-best writing and the inherent unlikeability of the main character. It's kind of a lot to read to get to something that feels satisfying, but at least it gets there.

Not disappointing in the least! Well written, there's action, there's adrenaline, there's emotion, there's humor. It's pretty impressive to me that a bad-ass demon-fighting main character can give this reader misty eyes on occasion. I'm almost sorry that I read the hardcover - it seems like it will be forever now that I'll have to wait for the next book! And for the record: If I were needing to find a name for a young'un of my own, I'd definitely consider Quen!

I enjoyed this novel as Harrison is finally pushing us toward understanding the roots of the animosity between Rachel and Trent. I did, predictably, object to the conclusion of the Ivy issue. Really, Harrison? You have exploited the relationship between Ivy and Rachel for five novels and now Rachel suddenly gets smart? More likely, the intention was never to create anything valuable between the two characters, as that would be uncomfortable, and the lust and titillation of the uncertain situation has run out. The exploitation of lesbian desire remains my objection to this series. (I also find it interesting that Ivy, when sexually denied, is somehow more comfortable with Rachel. This seems unrealistic.) I find Rachel's sudden decision to behave "smartly" even more shocking, especially as her character has never been particularly logical. Moreover, Rachel keeps making rash decisions; the only difference is that she tells herself (and us) that they make sense. Honestly, Harrison needs to endow her characters with a little more consistency. Rachel's ridiculous shifts in personality (and sexuality) are giving me whiplash.

I thought it was a bit "long winded" for the first part of the book but this passed and once we got down to the nitty-gritty of figuring out who's summoning Al, the pace picked up.I really liked the development of the relationships among the characters, and finding out more about the demons and elves and their relationships with each other. I also like Al a bit more now too - I know, odd... but anyway... the whole demon world aspect was interesting, very interesting.I still dislike Trent, or actually, I think I dislike him more than before... and I wasn't very impressed by the lame relationship between Rachel and Marshall... either do your business or get off the pot, seriously.

I wasn't sure that to think of this story at first, but it's really a lot of insight into Al. It's also an intriguing look at Ceri. I had no love for her, but now I understand her better.Merged review:Another one of Rachel's adventures. This time, we get to see a softer side of Trent in the process. I'm enjoying this series far more than I thought I would. The dynamics, the characters, the plotlines, all draw me in and make me want to keep reading.I had to force myself to read something else, honestly, because my books are piling up.

Another Rachel Morgan/Hollows book, 6th in the series.Rachel is a witch, who lives in a sanctified church with Ivy, a vampire and Jenks, a pixy. The formed the business Vampiric Charms to help capture demons and to deal with magical problems. But they have more than their share of problems of their own.In the last book, Rachel lost her vampire boyfriend, Kisten, to a murderer and we still don't know who. She's still dealing with it when Marshall appears. He's a witch who helped Rachel out before and is looking for a job in Cincy. Possible romance? Maybe.In this book, Al, the demon, is being summoned by someone to kill Rachel. She's determined to find out who it is and to stop Al from coming after her and her family. We get to meet Rachel's mom in this book and I hope she shows up in the other books too.Fast paced and still entertaining. I really think this series gets better with each book.

This selection from Kim Harrison's Hollow series is truly excellent. However, read it. Do not listen to it. The reader on the Audible download is not Ms. Gavin. For this omission, I took back one star.
