For a Few Demons More - Kim Harrison A slew of dead weres, tricked up to appear to be suicides, a visit from a deranged demon, a secret society fascinated with demon magic and concern that the powerful talisman she has been hiding in her werewolf friend’s freezer is central to all complicates life for Rachel Mariana Morgan, the 20-something power witch of Kim Harrison’s series set in The Hollows. In this fifth book in the series Rachel must cope, in addition, with trying to figure out her relationship with her roomie, Ivy, one of the most powerful vampires in town, deal with having had her driver’s license suspended, and try to find a way to extend the life of her dear friend and assistant, the short-lived pixie, Jenks, figure out what she wants her relationship to be with her vampire lover Kisten, and fend off sundry demons who keep appearing. This was a fun read, with a powerful, explosive climax. There was, however, a lack of explanation concerning a gap in Rachel’s consciousness. What happened during the lost time is never fully explained. And how is it that Ivy and Jenks are alive after Rachel saw them appear to be dead? That was not a happy thing. Her aura darkens but Rachel is learning to live with the soot on her soul. It was a satisfying read, but not the place one should begin reading Kim Harrrison. Return to the beginning and start there
