Blurb: All the creatures of the night gather in “the Hollows” of Cincinnati, to hide, to prowl, to party… and to feed.
Vampires rule the darkness in a predator-eat-predator world rife with dangers beyond imagining – and it’s Rachel Morgan’s job to keep that world civilized.
A bounty hunter and witch with serious sex appeal and an attitude, she’ll bring ’em back alive, dead… or undead.
Review: This was really quite interesting. Kind of long but, for once, it added to the story instead of taking away.
It gives the reader a little insight into how things happened, how the humans found out about all of the supernatural beings after a major catastrophe while also sticking to the main point.
The cover makes you think it’ll be a sexy book, I admit it made me think that along with a friend that I showed however, it is no where close to being a sexy book. The love interest is just a tiny little footnote while he’s helping her out and, I liked it.
It was just another case of judging a book by its cover and being wrong but, I’m really glad about that. It was a welcome surprise.
It was funny, sarcastic, simple without being boring and had plenty of twists to keep this reader going.
This book had some really in depth characters and while it stayed in one point of view, I easily grew attached to the others as I would if I read it in their perspective.
Give this book a chance and I think you might be on the prowl for the next one.
Thank you for reading my review.
