Demons of Good and Evil by Kim Harrison

While Rachel and her friends may have vanquished the trickster demon Hodin, his mysterious associate known only as “The Mage” is eager to finish what Hodin started, beginning with taking down Rachel’s power structure piece by piece.

When he frames Rachel for the death of a powerful coven member and the vampire leaders in DC threaten to send a new master vampire to take the city in hand, Rachel’s friends Ivy and Pike are forced into hiding, and even her lover, Trent, finds himself under fire. With her world falling apart, Rachel desperately needs help. But with all of her supporters under attack, her only hope is to make a deal with the unlikeliest of allies…

Review of Demons of Good and Evil

For Kim Harrison’s readers, there is a familiarity and expectation that comes along with a new Hollows installmentRachel will always court danger and in the process the people she loves and loathes are caught in the crosshairs. 

Number 17 in the Hollows series, Demons of Good and Evil, brings readers back into Harrison’s world and right in the thick of another adventure. 

Months after she tangles with Hodin, witch-born demon Rachel Morgan’s resolve is put to the test and her responsibility to the supernatural folk of Cincinnati as the demon sub rosa brings challenges she hadn’t expected. “The Mage,” a mysterious character manipulating the supernatural community, is complicating the local weres’ lives and turning Cincinnati into chaos. 

Added to this new enemy, Rachel faces distractions in her relationship with her partner Trent, with the vampires and the ever-irritating witch’s council. 

Returning to the Hollows is always a treat and in this latest installment, Harrison proves the conflict in Rachel Morgan’s life hasn’t ebbed, and there are plenty of mysteries to unravel and lives that need saving. 

Highly recommended.
