About The Book:
Condemned and shunned for black magic, Rachel Morgan has three days to get to the annual witches’ conference and clear her name, or be trapped in the demonic ever-after . . . forever after.

But a witch, an elf, a living vampire, and a pixy in one car going across the country? Talk about a recipe for certain disaster, even without being the targets for assassination.
For after centuries of torment, a fearsome demon walks in the sunlight—freed at last to slay the innocent and devour their souls. But his ultimate goal is Rachel Morgan, and in the fight for survival that follows, even embracing her own demonic nature may not be enough to save her.

The Review:
Once again Kim Harrison takes us into the chaotic world of Rachel Morgan. This time Rachel and her friends are traveling to see the Coven of Moral and Ethical Standards but as we all know things wont be easy for them and many will try to stop them. Can she clear her name before it is to late?
This was a great story. Can you imagine a road trip with your family but only a hundred times worse? I loved seeing all the different relationships and the new directions that they were heading to. This is book is number nine in the series so the characters are already established but we do find out many new and interesting things about them. Making it hard to tell just who is the enemy is now.
There is so much going on in this story and so many characters, yet we still get the little details concerning Rachel and her cohorts. Keeping this story familiar and interesting at the same time.
Reading this story was like visiting with old friends. I enjoyed watching Rachel begin to grow and start to really accept who she is and has become. While many loose ends are tied up in this book not all things are and as we know Rachel will be on another adventure soon and I cannot wait to see where it is that she goes.
