Welcome back to the Hollows. We have not visited witch-born demon Rachel Morgan and her crew in a while, so the preface of American Demon gives the reader a rundown of people, places and terms to either introduce or catch us up on the Cincinnati supernatural scene. I was happy to read that Rachel’s tough talking pixy partner Jenks is still at her side, as is adolescent gargoyle Bis. They are facing an increase in zombies in the ‘hood, some murders that are a bit strange in nature and a big demon peril to Rachel and her lover, elf born Trent. Trent is a political threat to others in power and a plot to kill him is putting everyone and everything Rachel loves in peril. But the cure may be even worse, like world-altering dangerous. What’s a demon to do? I was pulled into the Hollows world once again, and happy to be there.
A thrilling return to the #1 New York Times bestselling urban fantasy series, continuing Rachel Morgan's story.
RACHEL MORGAN IS BACK--AND THE HOLLOWS WILL NEVER BE THE SAME.
What happens after you've saved the world? Well, if you're Rachel Mariana Morgan, witch-born demon, you quickly discover that something might have gone just a little bit wrong. That the very same acts you and your friends took to forge new powers may have released something bound by the old. With a rash of zombies, some strange new 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.
