*but what really *what really this book apart as a strong addition to the series was the inclusion of a lot of complicated spellwork It was awesome I remember Rachel spelling in previous books but I don t recall it ever being uite this involved She was trying to develop a new spell and I found every stage of the process absolutely fascinating I hope this leveled up component continues in the next bookThe Hollows is one of my top urban fantasy series It s not my overall favorite precisely but it is responsible for a couple of my single favorite scenes across any enre Harrison really knows how to build momentum and she has truly dazzled me with some of her most epic moments But that Elena's Conquest gradual momentum that always leads to amazing payoffs takes time to develop And so as we re just beginning another story arc in American Demon the pacing is rather casual throughout most of the story Which is just fine because when a series touches you like this one has me even the slower parts have a lot of merit It was areat way to ease back into the worldRecommendations this is a must read for fans of the series the story uality continues as strong as ever With that in mind I wouldn t recommend new readers diving in without first reading the main Hollows series Also Harrison published a really ood preuel novel The Turn that she referenced often in American Demon so if you haven t had a chance to read that one yet I think it added a lot to the experience I want to thank Berkley Publishing Group Kim Harrison and Netgalley for allowing me access to an early copy of American Demon you made my yearVia The Obsessive Bookseller at wwwNikiHawkescomOther books you might like Kim Harrison takes us back to our beloved Hollows with American Demon and fans will not be disappointedWe join up once again with Rachel Morgan right before the epilogue in The Witch With No Name Harrison introduces two new characters into the book whom I think Hollows fans will love They bring a breath of fresh air to the series after laying dor. Rachel Morgan is back and The Hollows will never be the sameWhat happens after you've saved the world Well if you're Rachel Mariana Morgan witch born demon you uickly discover that something ,

*reality though only *though only and Al live openly Ivy has separated herself a bit from Rachel and Jenks wo 3 stars I kind of wish I had just stopped reading the series at book 13 Harrison ended it so perfectly While I was excited to et back into The Hollows my mind is screaming not like this When I started this book it felt really ood to be back in The Hollows with Rachel and the ang but halfway through I realized this book was waaaayyyy too long winded and the plot was all over I ended up kind of skimming until the end which I also somewhat hated Not sure if I will continue this series if there are books I should have let it be The world has changed for our team Ivy has Nina the church is badly in need of repair Jenks needs a new home and Demons are enjoying coffee that doesn t taste like burnt amberThings are tense between Trent and the elves but a young elf seeking him may change things as Rachel embraces all sides Ivy wasn t present as much as I would have liked but Jenks is his usually charming self It was delightful to be back solving problems as the Moonrise gang faces a deadly enemy with harmful intentRomance new friends powerful discoveries and magic await you in this addictive first installment I am so happy to be back in the Hollows I loved seeing Al and you won t believe who is working as a barista in our favorite coffee shop Trent has mellowed and seeing him with Rachel and the children is answer enoughThe trouble and conflict in American Demon was a scary one and Rachel can t rest until she stops them because someone she cares for is at risk Harrison delivered a fresh spin on a mythical loreA new friend Morgan encounters come to her aid but has others on high alert I lovedetting to know them making all the connections and learning the uniue histories Watching things unfold was delightful and of course Rachel never listens to advice and needs to find her own answers It s something I love about her even if it also makes me crazy Harrison brought twists particularly when it comes to the Goddess It felt right We et hints of trouble ahead and some developments that have me excited The ending left me crying but hopefulFans will want to add this to their bookshelves because it s a keeper If you haven t read the Hollows you could technically begin with American Demon But as a member of the fandom I recommend started at the beginning This review was originally posted at Caffeinated Reviewe. W murders and an exceedingly mysterious new demon in town it will take everything Rachel has to counter this new threat to the world and it may demand the sacrifice of what she holds most dear.

prior book ended before the epilogue In terms of the new friends or foes I really enjoyed theirbook ended before the epilogue In terms of the new friends or foes I really enjoyed their to the story I think there is potential for even character development for them as the series continues and I m really looking forward to it While it s still a reat read I do think there are a couple of faves that some readers are Beautiful Ghosts going to miss thiso round but it allowed for our new additions to Alexandra, Gone get the proper introduction and development I care about them in just one book because of it I ve been a TrentRachel shipper since basically the dawn of time so there is ample development in their relationship Kim doesn t shy away from addressing their checkered past She faces it head on but the uestion is will they be better off or worse off for it Just when we thought we knew all there was to know about the Kalamacks and the elves we re in for fascinating surprises We take a deeper dive into demon and elf magic The neverending war of which type is truly superior keeps youlued to the pages I really don t know where Kim comes up with all of this stuff Honestly it s definitely worth a reread to digest the science behind magic itself If there is one downside it s my own fault I hadn t read this series in years and if there s one thing I wish it s that I took part in the reread leading up to this release This book builds so much off the prior books without iving you too much backstory which I do appreciate builds so much off the prior books without iving you too much backstory which I do appreciate I really dislike it when stories F.
