drey's thoughts:
In Black Magic Sanction, Rachel Morgan spends countless pages running from the white coven, who are intent on bringing her to justice--their version of it anyway--for her use of black magic. They've already shunned her, now they're outright kidnapping and attacking her. First, they attack her in the grocery store. Then, they use her slimy ex Nick to summon her, and this gets Rachel thrown into Alcatraz. Luckily for her, her friends manage to come through and help her out. Only for trouble to find her again.

Ironic, isn't it, that the white coven is using lethal means to capture and confine Rachel? Sure, she's got some smut on her aura, but the how of getting that should count for something... When even her sanctuary is attacked, Rachel comes up with a daring plan to get the coven off her back. So what if it involves playing  people way more powerful than she is? She can handle it. Hopefully.

I really enjoy Kim Harrison's Rachel Morgan series. Rachel takes on demons and more, to help save her friends, whether they deserve it or not, whether they appreciate it or not. Now she has to come to terms with what she is, if she can live long enough to figure that out. Can't wait for #9.

lol Jenks is totally cool! Trent is kind of a jerk in this one, I think. What is it with broody fussy men anyways? Sheesh. :P And I always forget about the cover art. Sometimes I think it could be wrapped in brown paper and I wouldn't care if the story's good... Then again, that's probably just me... But YES, this cover's AWESOME!! =D
