RT Rating

Harrison delivers the 10th book in her Hollows series, treading this familiar playground with steady steps. While the book seems to detour onto unnecessary paths, making for an overly long and at times slow read, fans of the series should be well pleased with the return of their favorite characters and the deepening of Rachel’s personal story.

Former witch turned day-walking demon Rachel Morgan rarely has a dull day. It was bad enough that she was on no-fly lists, but having to reapply for her driver’s license? A demon shouldn’t have to go through that of all things! Rachel’s day only goes downhill when an ancient vampire contacts her and asks her to look into a trio of corpses that have turned up, apparently ritualistically slain. When Rachel is labeled a suspect, matters get personal. Rachel realizes someone may well be after her own blood, in order to make their own demons. (HARPER VOYAGER, Mar., 448 pp., $26.99)

LITERAL ADDICTION's Review of A Perfect Blood

Submitted by MichelleLOlson on October 5, 2012 - 1:47pm.

Our Review [by Michelle L. Olson - LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha]:
This continues to be one of the UF series that I remain fiercely loyal to (reading new releases right away after release day) & it never disappoints!

I adore these characters & feel like we've grown together. Like Dark Days, it will be very sad when it ends, but it'll have been an amazing ride getting there.

Originally White Witch, Black Curse was my fave of the series, replaced by Pale Demon, now replaced by A Perfect Blood...

Rachel has really grown as a character, but geez, she just can't keep herself out of trouble!

It was really nice to see her embrace her true nature and everything that entails though, and I find that I'm oddly liking the strange direction things are going in with her and Trent. Who woulda thunk it! And yes, as I'm sure was intended, there is just something strangely loveable about the nasty Brit poseur demon Al. What can I say, I like bad boys. LOL.

Jenks remains one of the best UF sidekicks out there and Ivy held her own this one as well showing a maturity of balance between Rachel and her private life and Rachel and their business partnership.

This series continues to get better and better and I'm counting down the days to the release of book #11.

Way to go Kim, another fabulous read!!
