I think this may be my new favorite book in The Hollows Series, by Kim Harrison. I find myself having more and more in common with Rachel. Though, with her being a witch, her problems are on a larger scale. Against popular opinion, I'm a huge Trent fan. I don't know what it is about that elf. And I also love Pierce. So far, he's my favorite potential boyfriend for Rachel. Bis has a greater role in this book, and I'm definitely a fan. Have tissues handy. My copy was covered in tear drops on a few pages.
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 - at worst, a forced lobatomy 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 an ex-boyfriend turned thief.
It takes a witch to catch a witch, but survival bears a heavy price.
