Book #32 was For a Few Demons More, the fifth book in Kim Harrisonâ€™s Rachel Morgan series. The back of the book reads:
Despite dating one vampire and living with another, Rachel Morgan has always managed to stay just ahead of trouble . . . until now.
A fiendish serial killer stalks the Hollows, and no one living in or around Cincinnatiâ€”human, inhuman, or undeadâ€”is safe.
An ancient artifact may be the key to stopping the murdererâ€”a mysterious relic that is now in the hands of Rachel Morgan, fearless independent bounty hunter and reckless witch. But revealing it could ignite a battle to the death among the vast and varied local supernatural races.
Rachel’s been lucky so far. But even she can’t hide from catastrophe forever.
Unfortunately, I ruined part of this for myself by reading about the next book on Amazon. So if you donâ€™t want to know what happens with Rachel and Kisten, donâ€™t do that! Overall, this was a solid entry in a series I love, though I donâ€™t think it was quite as good as the last one. There are a lot of surprises here, the first one coming immediately when Rachel wakes up in the process of being possessed by a demon… and it isnâ€™t Al for once. The characters continue to show growth, but I have to say that I was really disappointed in Trent. I was just getting used to thinking about him being a basically decent guy under the whole â€œrunning a drug cartelâ€ thing when it turns out heâ€™s much, much worse than we thought. When this book ends, thereâ€™s a fair amount of stuff that remains to be explained. Thereâ€™s been a big change in Rachelâ€™s world, and I canâ€™t wait to see how things shake out.
