Between “runs”, she has her hands full fending off the attentions of her blood-drinking partner, keeping a deadly secret from her backup, and resisting a hot new vamp suitor.
Rachel must also take a stand in the war that’s raging in the city’s underworld, since she helped put away its former vampire kingpin – and made a deal with a powerful demon to do so that could cost her an eternity of pain, torment, and degradation.
And now her dark “master” is coming to collect his due.
I recently read an anthology called Dates from Hell and there was a story in it by Kim Harrison which made me realize just how very much I have missed the Hollows so I decided to pick up where I left off with the third book in the series called Every Which Way But Dead and it was even better than I ever could have hoped! I’m kicking myself for taking so long to read it.
Since I did take a break from the Rachel Morgan's world I was a little confused at first because Harrison’s books don’t read very well as stand-alones but because I have read the others (although it’s been awhile) I was able to puzzle out key things (like who people were) eventually. The author does try to give a little back story but unless you have read the previous two books then you will more than likely will be lost.
I have to say that I’m really happy with the direction the series is going and I hope Rachel keeps her current love interest! There was so much action and drama in Every Which Way that I’m still wondering how it all fit into only 500 pages. So much happened in the book that I’m still wondering when that poor girl found time to sleep!
I’ll be starting the next book in the series (A Fistful of Charms) soon. I’m just hoping it will be as good this one but since Rachel and Ivy always seem to be getting into some kind of trouble (with many people trying to kill them), I’m assuming it will be.
