Rachel Morgan has fought and hunted vampires, werewolves, banshees, demons, and other supernatural dangers as both witch and bounty hunter -- and lived to tell the tale. But she's never faced off against her own kind ... until now.

Denounced and shunned for dealing with demons and black magic, her best hope is life imprisonment -- her worst, a forced lobotomy and genetic slavery. Only her enemies are strong enough to help her win her freedom. But trust comes hard when it hinges on the unscrupulous tycoon Trent Kalamack, the demon Algaliarept, and a lowlife ex-boyfriend-turned-thief.

It takes a witch to catch a witch, but survival bears a heavy price.

My Review (2/25/13):
Wow! This installment into the life of our favorite Witch/Demon (who knows?) is definitely a page-turner. This is one of the faster paced books, with action around every corner as Rachel faces off against the Coven of Moral and Ethical Standards responsible for her shunning. Her friends, ever-supportive of Rachel, get drawn into the battle with some heart-wrenching consequences. Rachel is forced to question her own limits and to weigh protecting herself and her loved ones with what her conscience will allow.

Trent continues to be a gorgeous yet frustrating thorn in Rachel’s side – the tension between them is great and you’ll only be disappointed that he doesn’t get more screen time. Nick reappears on the scene as well and, as usual, he’s not exactly a welcome sight. But he has his role to play and I found his reappearance equally frustrating and rewarding. Two surprising characters start to come to the fore: Al and Bis. Al has been a pretty important character for a while now, but in this book he’s become surprisingly endearing. And then Bis… I just love this little gargoyle and he earns more of your love in this book. Oh and there’s Pierce. Oh Pierce….

Prepare to hold your breath, have your heart broken, and cheer her on as she continues to grapple with who she is, what she can do, finding love, and oh, of course, Trent.  Another incredible read from Kim Harrison.
