“The world of the Hollows is fast-moving, funny, harrowing, and scary, and—the greatest compliment to a fantasy—absolutely real.”
—New York Times bestselling author Diana Gabaldon
Kim Harrison is a New York Times-bestselling phenomenon, in the superstar pantheon along with Laurel K. Hamilton and Charlaine Harris of Sookie Stackhouse fame. Return to “the Hollows” in White Witch, Black Curse, as tough-as-nails bounty hunter witch Rachel Morgan seeks vengeance for the death of her lover among the creatures of the night. Indeed, Charlaine Harris herself has nothing but praise for ’s peerless protagonist, promising, “You’re going to love this bounty hunter!” White Witch, Black Curse is contemporary dark fantasy at its electrifying best.
Confusion reigns for characters and readers in the complicated seventh urban fantasy outing (after 2008's The Outlaw Demon Wails) for witch detective Rachel Morgan. Rachel's reputation is in tatters to save humanity, she used powers that are considered evil and she's still devastated by the mysterious death of her boyfriend six months earlier. Her attempts to solve his murder bleed into a case involving an emotion-sucking banshee, and soon Rachel has to bring in her PI partners Ivy, a bisexual vampire, and Jenks, a pixie in existential crisis along with empathic psychiatrist Ford and the banshee victim's father, Federal Inderland Bureau captain Edden. Harrison's unique vampire mythology unduly complicates world-building, and newcomers will be desperate for a glossary, but the nearly nonstop action nicely plays off the poignancy of Rachel's difficult life.

White Witch,Black Curse
Extremely slow, so much so the characters are hard to follow.
New people and Witches World need to be better defined.
When I started reading this series I thought I was going to read each book in a couple of months each, take it slow, but I find my self reading it with in a matter of a week or two, I couldn't help becoming completely infatuated with it, with the end of this book i'm happy and a bit sad too for Kisten and for her being shunned but I'm about to start reading the next one and I can't wait to find out what happens next :)
