"I wouldn't miss a Kim Harrison book for anything."—Charlaine Harris, author of the Sookie Stackhouse novels

New York Times bestselling urban fantasy superstar Kim Harrison is back with Pale Demon—her ninth electrifying adventure featuring contemporary witch Rachel Morgan. This time Rachel's leaving the Hollows, on a cross-country road trip with a pixy, an elf, and a vampire, as she races to clear her blackened name at a California witches' convention in order to avoid an eternity of torment at the claws of a soul-devouring demon. Pale Demon is Kim Harrison at her gothic best—combining mystery, action, intrigue, paranormal romance, and breathtaking dark fantasy in a delicious witches' brew that fans of Laurell K. Hamilton, Charlaine Harris, Stephenie Meyer, and Jim Butcher simply will not be able to resist.

        Starred review from January 24, 2011
        Harrison's intriguing ninth Hollows novel (after 2010's Black Magic Sanction) lives up to the earlier books, which established Harrison as a major urban fantasy player. Witch and bounty hunter Rachel Morgan needs to get to her brother's wedding. This leads to an uneasy alliance with her elven frenemy Trent Kalamack, who's being pushed toward Seattle by a quest. Meanwhile, Jenks the pixy is recovering from the loss of his wife, Matalina, and needs distraction. The result: "A witch, an elf, and a pixy on the Great American Road Trip" through a landscape reworked by magic, facing down terrifying foes en route. Elegant and taut as a gymnast's cartwheel, Harrison's polished prose drives a story that will have readers swerving in their seats every time Rachel turns the wheel.

        Rachel Morgan must get to the witches' convention in San Francisco--fast. She's been condemned to death for reputedly using black magic and needs to clear her name. Since she's prohibited from flying, she teams up with an elven tycoon, a living vampire (what?), and a pixy to drive cross-country. Alas, there's a would-be assassin slowing them down. The one-day laydown on February 22 says it all, and the 250,000-copy first printing is nice, too. Buy lots.

        What do you get when a witch, a pixie, a vampire, and an elf go on a road trip? If the witch is Rachel Morgan (Black Magic Sanction), chaos is likely to ensue. Rachel's headed to the annual witches convention in San Francisco to defend herself against charges of using demon magic, and her friends Ivy and Jenks aren't going to let her travel alone. Rachel's longtime frenemy, Trent Kalamack, needs to get to the West Coast for his own purposes--an elf quest to take back something that was stolen by his ex-fiancee. The unlikely group bands together for a cross-country trip that is anything but a cheery jaunt down Route 66. Harrison's alternate America is creepy and desolate, with large swaths of abandoned territory and ghost towns galore. And trouble, in the form of a dangerous demon named Ku'Sox, follows them wherever they go. VERDICT As in Harrison's previous books, this one features plenty of action and a strong central character, but it is a little bit lighter in tone than the last few installments in the series. Urban fantasy and paranormal romance fans will undoubtedly place plenty of holds, so purchase accordingly. [See Prepub Alert, LJ 10/15/10.]--Nanette Donohue, Champaign P.L., IL

        November 15, 2010

        Magic, sexual tension, bloodshed and convoluted plotlines color this urban-fantasy road trip, the ninth in the series featuring Cincinnati witch/incipient demon Rachel Morgan (Black Magic Sanction, 2010, etc.).

        Rachel's ability to invoke demon magic has gotten her shunned by her fellow witches, and put her at risk of life imprisonment—or worse. Since she's on the no-fly list, she's forced to drive to the witches' convention in San Francisco for a slim chance at a pardon, accompanied by her vampire roommate Ivy, her pixy sidekick Jenks and, unexpectedly, the elven druglord Trent Kalamack, who has promised to plead Rachel's case, and (as always), also has his own agenda. En route, they're pursued by rogue pixies, the only coven member sympathetic to Rachel's predicament, assassins targeting Trent and a mysterious demon, who, unlike others of his kind, can appear during the daytime. It's always fun to watch Rachel outthink and outfight what appear to be overwhelming odds. Those who have followed the complex love/hate relationship between Rachel and Trent through several books will be glad to see it finally making some significant progress. However, the method Trent employs to help Rachel retain her liberty is stunningly ruthless. It's amazing, given her rock-solid sense of morality, that she can still be attracted to him, particularly since the core of the series concerns Rachel's retention of that morality through her extensive travails and personal transformations. Although Trent exerts himself and suffers significantly to redeem the horrific consequences of his actions, readers may be somewhat put off—probably not enough to skip the next volume, however.

        An exceptionally enjoyable ride, if at times somewhat ethically and logically questionable.

        Starred review from October 15, 2010
        The ninth Rachel Morgan novel finds our tough and feisty witch on a mission to get her shunning rescinded, which requires traveling to the annual witch convention in San Francisco. But the coven doesnt want her to make her appointment, so theyve put her on the no fly list, which is why she has to accept Trents offer of a cross-country car trip. The rich elf has his own reasons for traveling cross-country, telling Rachel and Ivy that he is on a traditional elf quest. Fans of the series will recognize that simply having Trent, Jenks, Ivy, and Rachel on a road trip is enough to make for a good story, but that is merely the beginning of an action-packed tale that finds Rachel coming fully into her demon magic powers and reevaluating her long-held impressions of Trent. Ending with hints of some major character developments and changes in Rachels life, this is an excellent entry that is guaranteed to satisfy Harrisons legion of followers. (Should there be any overlap between Clint Eastwood and Kim Harrison fan clubs, that subset will certainly enjoy Harrisons allusions here to Eastwoods Pale Rider.) The Rachel Morgan series is fast becoming one of the hottest tickets in the urban-fantasy subgenre.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2010, American Library Association.)
