Publishers Description:

Condemned and shunned for black magic, Rachel Morgan has three days to get to the annual witches’ conference and clear her name, or be trapped in the demonic ever-after . . . forever after.
But a witch, an elf, a living vampire, and a pixy in one car going across the country? Talk about a recipe for certain disaster, even without being the targets for assassination.
For after centuries of torment, a fearsome demon walks in the sunlight—freed at last to slay the innocent and devour their souls. But his ultimate goal is Rachel Morgan, and in the fight for survival that follows, even embracing her own demonic nature may not be enough to save her.

Pale Demon by Kim Harrison is book 9 in the Hollows Series. This series is set in an alternate reality in the Hollows of Cincinnati, Ohio. So much happens in this book. From the very first chapter I was hooked. Rachel, Ivy, Jenks and Trent go on a road trip to the west coast while under watchful eyes and dealing with constant assassination attempts. Trent and Rachel find that they need each other more that either one of them could have ever imagined…ahem, not like that ;). There is an introduction of the scariest villain this series yet and we get to see the other side of those in the ever-after. For the many issues resolved, there are more raised and I am excited about every one. Ms. Harrison does an outstanding job with the pacing, plot and character development. In my opinion, this is the best book in the series and one of the best books I’ve read and I may read it again. I can’t wait for the next book.
Rating: 5/5
Recommendation: Best in the series so far. I definitely recommend.
