The seventh book in Harrison's Hollows series feels like the middle book in a long-running series: The plot meanders between two storylines and never really seems to settle on which should be primary. The saving grace is Rachel herself -- she's one of the most self-aware heroines in the genre, and her negotiation of her position in the world is fascinating.
Rachel Morgan has had to cross too many lines, break too many rules and take entirely too much on herself -- and now she must pay the price. Kisten's murder left a deeper wound than anyone imagined, and now Rachel knows that she will never stop looking for his killer, no matter the cost.
As Rachel deals with her internal turmoil, a new predator comes to the fore, one that feeds on emotion and is willing to sacrifice nearly everything for those she loves -- a parallel Rachel doesn't seem to notice. (EOS, Mar., 512 pp., $25.99)
