Review: 90. Pale Demon by Kim Harrison...

July 15, 2011
I've had Pale Demon sitting on my shelves for 3 weeks, and thought I'd better pick it up before it makes the return trip to the library unread...

drey's thoughts:
Well.  Rachel starts out this installment neck-deep in doo-doo, as she has to head to San Francisco to plead against her shunning.  But can she trust the Coven members to live up to their end of the bargain?

None of her cohorts think so, but all Rachel has at this point is hope.  And then Trent comes bearing an offer--get him to Seattle in three days and he'll help her through the trial.  Can she trust him?

The better question would be:  Can a demon-witch, a pixie, a vampire, and an elf survive a road-trip together?  Especially when there are day-walking demons about, assassins on their trail, and wickedly devious goings-on?  I guess you're going to have to read Pale Demon and find out.  Poor Rachel.  All she wants is to be left alone.  And alive, of course.  Getting to that point in one piece wouldn't be too much to ask for, would it?

drey's rating:  Excellent!  Loved this latest installment--lots of action, and definitely a ton of character development.  I wonder where Ms. Harrison's going to take Rachel next?

Have you read Pale Demon? What did you think?
