(27) The Undead Pool

Title: The Undead Pool (Hollows) by Kim Harrison
Publisher: Harper Voyager
423 pages
Genre: Fantasy

Synopsis: Supernatural superhero Rachel Morgan must counter a strange magic that could spell civil war for the Hollows in this sexy and bewitching urban fantasy adventure in acclaimed New York Times
Witch and day-walking demon Rachel Morgan has managed to save the demonic ever after from shrinking, but at a high cost. Now, strange magic is attacking Cincinnati and the Hollows, causing spells to backfire or go horribly wrong, and the truce between the races, between Inderlander and human, is shattering. Rachel must stop this dark necromancy before the undead vampire masters who keep the rest of the undead under control are lost and all-out supernatural war breaks out. Rachel knows of only weapon to ensure the peace: ancient elven wild magic, which carries its own perils. And no one know better than Rachel that no good deed goes unpunished....

Review: Rachel is more than what she seems.  The only day walking demon she is always being blamed for things but this time Rachel seems to be the only one who may be able to save everyone.  Typical fun Rachel Morgan book and I'm happy to see that Trent is starting to make more of an appearance.

Apparently this is the second to last book in this series which is due to end in 2015 which bums me out because not having Rachel, Jenks, Trent, and Ivy around will make life much duller.  So in the spirit of tying up loose ends this story opens up many doors and helps explain some things that go on in this crazy world.

I can't really say much without giving away the plot so I will stop here and say if you've read the other Rachel Morgan books you will like this one...if you haven't what are you waiting for?
