In New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison's most complex and nuanced adventure yet, bounty hunter and witch Rachel Morgan fights a deadly battle—mind, body, and soul

Black Magic Sanction

Rachel Morgan has fought and hunted vampires, werewolves, banshees, demons, and other supernatural dangers as both witch and bounty hunter—and lived to tell the tale. But she's never faced off against her own kind . . . until now. Denounced and shunned for dealing with demons and black magic, her best hope is life imprisonment—at worst, a forced lobotomy and genetic slavery. Only her enemies are strong enough to help her win her freedom, but trust comes hard when it hinges on the unscrupulous tycoon Trent Kalamack, the demon Algaliarept, and an ex-boyfriend turned thief.

It takes a witch to catch a witch, but survival bears a heavy price.

Rachel Morgan has gotten herself in trouble again… but it’s not her fault. The coven has shunned her for being a black witch, but she is only doing what she thinks is right, which usually involves saving peoples lives, including her friends. She is still Al’s (the demon) student; Pierce is still around, although this time he has a body, and a nice one at that. There is a little crush or romance going on here, but it doesn't overshadow the story at all.... Rachel is being very cautious with her heart this time around since she is still so distraught over the loss of Kisten. She is bound and determined not to get her heart broken again.In this installment of the latest Kim Harrison book, there is humor, edge of your seat drama, some seriously sad things, and just all around one big joy ride of entertainment. The characters are so intense and intriguing. This has to be one of my all time favorite series, and even though I’ve sworn not to buy hardcover anymore, I couldn’t resist this and didn’t even try. And was not disappointed.Kim Harrison has a way of weaving an unbelievable story into something believable. I couldn’t put the book down. Not only is Rachel and amazingly strong character, although you can easily see her humanity and the chinks in her armor, she has the best friends in the world in Ivy, a live Vampire, and Jenks, a pixie…who would do anything for her, and have, just as Rachel would go to the ends of the earth for them. The angst and competition between Trent and Rachel is still there, stemming from childhood and it’s hard to believe they haven’t killed each other yet, but there is a respect there that will keep them playing the “I hate you” game for some time to come. For some reason I really like Al. The demon is funny, rude, and scary...but it's obvious he cares about Rachel in his own way, despite having no compunction about killing anyone, possibly even her some day. Rachel does spend a little too much time dwelling on things like whether she should do certain things to people who are attempting to kill her. She is trying to retain her humanity, but she really needed to be spending more time on self defense, even if it meant killing... such as a group of vicious fairies... who are a huge part of the tragedy that happens in the book that changes the lives of all 3 of them. Jenks especially.If you have never read a Kim Harrison book, you should. I was hooked from the start… get the first one, and don’t stop until you’re done.read more

Looks like The Hallows has drawn to a close... or has it? Hard to say with Rachel Morgan. The reported last installment in the series ties up a lot of loose ends, but leaves just as many open. Sorrow, hearache, betrayal, backstabbing, and plot twists galore decorate Harrison's last work of the series, and once you start it, forget trying to put it down. Rachel is faced with a dilema, hunted down by the coven of ethical and moral standards (yep even the name of it rings with utter bullsh!t - just like most government agencies), trying to be controlled by Trent, and harassed by Al, all whle trying to NOT be a black witch, rachel has to finally come to terms with what she really is. One of a kind, and different, which makes her VERY dangerous. But with a good set of friends, and a good head and heart, she searches for the right path, and her freedom.

I think I preferred this book over the last couple in the series... While Rachel still suffered inner turmoil over the choices she was forced to make, she actually seemed to mature somewhat this time - choosing to be who she is rather than who she thinks she is.Though this is not to say there weren't moments when I wished I could reach through the pages and smack her for her stupid choices...I'm still mad at Trent. I've been mad at him for several books now and wish she'd left him with the demons, but anyway, that's a tangent...I'm starting the next book immediately because I need to find out what Rachel does next with her life.

Rachel is beginning to come to terms with who and what she is. Although she's being forced by various forces to grow she is beginning to gain the confidence in her abilities she needs. I really appreciate this series and find it an excellent and engrossing read. Kim Harrison is a very compelling writer.
