“This is by far the best book of the series to date. And I say that for many reasons, some of which I will get to in a moment, but I'd be a big liar, liar pants on fire if I didn't fess up to loving it mostly because of the amount of Trent there was in it. My enjoyment of any Hollows book is at...”see full review » see other reviews »

“The overall impression I get from this book, that was abundantly clear from the first few pages, is that Kim Harrison is running low on ideas and had no clue how to start this book. I wonder if she is taking random reader submissions like Piers Anthony started to do just when his Xanth books...”see full review » see other reviews »
“WOW!!! I just blasted through this book - easily the best book in the series thus far. Yes, I have to admit that my love of the book probably had a lot to do with Trent - he's not just in it for the brief glances of the other books, he is right in the center! But It's not just Trent - it's Jenks, Ivy, Pierce, Al, Bis, Newt... Everyone is coming out of their comfort zones, growing and changing. The revelations about most my favorite characters just kept coming in this book - Harrison is finally letting us get answers, though she leaves us with just as many NEW questions!
The story centers on the road trip we've all had to take (well minus the demons, vampires, elves, pixies, and witches). You know, that road trip that starts of wrong and just keeps getting worse? You fight with everyone, you have touching heartfelt moments, you sing, you sleep only to wake discombobulated, grumpy and hungry? Well - it's that road trip. The touching moments are great, intermixed with humor and excitement.
Overall the book is a page turner - even the supposed dips/transition moments in the plot kept you moving along, obviously building toward something. There's so much to say about this book - but to avoid giving away the amazing surprises along the way, I'll just conclude by saying: The book is incredible and sure to remain a favorite in the series, regardless of where Harrison goes from here!

“I loved it, although there are many heartbreaking moments. I am really eager to see what happens in the next book to see if Rachel's decision at the end of the book will hold. I see some definite Trent/Rachel going on, maybe even Al/Rachel. Harrison has worked to show Al in a light we have never seen him in before and I feel she will probably reveal more about his past in the next book. Rachel has finally admitted to herself that she is a demon, and admits it to the world. Ku'Sox was a fierce villain and the fight scene was really exciting. A lot of new stuff is going on with all our beloved characters in this installment and its good to see the series isn't getting stale but constantly morphing and exploring new things.”Rochelle H wrote this review Sunday, October 7, 2012.

“Rachel and Trent (along with the help of Ivy and Jenks) go on a road trip to the West Coast to a) prevent Rachel's shunning and b) finish Trent's elf quest while fighting a new day-walking demon. I really liked this one with the development of Trent's character and Rachel's growing understanding of demons. Plus Pierce was treated horribly - hooray!”Felicity F wrote this review Wednesday, April 11, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
