Review - Pale Demon by Kim Harrison

Pale Demon (The Hollows, Book 9)Pale Demon (The Hollows, Book 9)

Flat out, this is the best book I've read so far this year. Like fine wine, The Hollows is a series that has just grown better with time. Although the intricate complexities of this latest addtion (9th book) to an already variegated storyline might initially leave even an ardent fan like myself bewildered, enlightenment soon dawns upon the second and even fifth reading. While that may make you rethink your decision to read this 448 pages long harcover, my suggestion would be run and grab this book - now. Devour it like the aforementioned "Pale Demon" devours souls in this never-a-dull-moment fantastic thriller of an addition to a stellar series. That said, this is definitely not a stand-alone story and must be read in order of the series to get the full-bodied effect.

Now that I've sung its praise enough to make you curious, let me give you a glimpse of what this story's about.
