Rachel Morgan can’t catch a break. Even as she is happily dating a human, Nick and things seem to be going fairly well with her new roomies, Jenks and Ivy. Rachel gets sucked into a witch murderer case. Several witches have been found dead and Rachel has this gut feeling that Trent Kalamack is behind this. After all, it wouldn’t be the first time Trent had tried something mischievous and manipulative to get what he wants.

As Rachel gets to work with Detective Glen, readers come to see a much more passionate side to Rachel. Flipping through the evidence files, the blood and gore is too much for even a witch like her. I loved this part because it not only showed readers a compassionate side to Rachel, but also displayed nicely that she isn’t above all this. I enjoyed seeing her determination and her eager need to take Trent down. It isn’t simply to take revenge on what he did to her in the last book.

Kim Harrison weaves an intricate plot in THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UNDEAD. Though Trent infuriates me sometimes, there’s also something very magnetic about him. Readers can’t help but wanting to know more about him. Who he really is is still up in the air and I love the way that Harrison plays this out.

Each book in the series reveals just enough to keep readers entertained without giving too much away. Nick still makes me nervous. I like him, but there’s something about him that causes me to question everything he says. I’m eager to find out what happens with the human.The Hollows has become a world that I have been wholly invested in. I can’t wait to find out what happens next!

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
