From New York Times best-selling author Kim Harrison comes the second book in her brilliant Hollows series. Packed with the perfect balance of wry humour and thrilling action, it will delight fans of thrillers and fantasy alike.
During the last few months, former bounty hunter Rachel Morgan has been rather busy. Having escaped relatively unscathed from her corrupt former employers, she's not only acquired a vampiric room-mate called Ivy, faced werewolf assassins, and battled shape-shifting demons, but she has also found the time to pick up a boyfriend (even if he is only human) and to open her very own runner agency.
But cohabiting with a vampire, however reformed, has its dangers. Ivy's evil vampire ex-boyfriend has decided that he wants her back, and he views Rachel as a tasty side-dish. To make matters worse, Rachel's demon mark is the ultimate vamp-aphrodisiac; one that works both ways.
The stakes are high, and if Rachel is to save herself and her roommate she must challenge the master vampire and confront the dark secrets she's kept hidden even from herself.
"Action packed… chick-lit with a supernatural twist." (The Times)
"A spellbinding blend of sharp wit and vivid imagination. A wonderfully fun romp through the supernatural world." (Kelley Armstrong)
"Discovering a new series like this is like finding buried treasure." (Diana Gabaldon)
"I wouldn’t miss a Kim Harrison book for anything." (Charlaine Harris, author of the Sookie Stackhouse novels)

Better than the 1st Book!
It's way better than the first book. The author writes a lot less about how people look and the way their eyes are, which leaves more time for the actual story. It is much easier to follow what's happening and you can even understand some of the characters. Harrison comes up with new challenges and twists for Rachel Morgan which keeps the story somewhat interesting, even though her main enemy is still the same.
The narrator wasn't very successful at getting different emotions across and making it easy to follow the different characters, but she made it easy to follow the story and listen to the audiobook.
