To save the lives of her friends, Rachel did the unthinkable: she willingly trafficked in forbidden demon magic. And now her sins are coming home to haunt her. As Rachel searches for the truth behind a terrifying murder, an even greater menace threatens, for the demon Algaliarept will stop at nothing to claim her, and the discovery of a shocking family secret throws Rachel’s entire life into question. If she is ever to live free, Rachel must first walk willingly into the demonic ever-after in search of long-lost ancient knowledge. But when you dance with demons, you lay your soul on the line … and there are some lines that should never be crossed.

 

What a fabulous addition to the Rachel Morgan world.  Not as wrenching as the last book, For a Few Demons More, this is more of a transition from Rachel’s old life to her new one, but damned if it wasn’t fabulous anyway.  Rachel has to deal with her grief (which I thought was done exceedingly well), as well as the host of problems she’s accumulated over the last year, to include her uber-complicated relationship with Ivy.  I have to say, Rachel is definitely one of my favorite recurring character in any series (she ties with Joanna Baldwin from Rachel Caine’s Weather Warden series)…so much so that any of Harrison’s book are auto-buys for me.  I think her books are what I needed after ditching Laurell K. Hamilton’s books, and thank goodness for that!
