Witch and day-walking demon Rachel Morgan has managed to save the demonic ever after from shrinking, but at a high cost. Now strange magic is attacking Cincinnati and the Hollows, causing spells to backfire or go horribly wrong, and the truce between the races, between Inderlander and human, is shattering.Rachel must stop the occurrences before the undead vampire masters who keep the rest of the undead under control are lost and it becomes all-out supernatural war. However, the only way to do so is through the ancient elven wild magic, which carries its own perils.
As I have said before, I am a huge Kim Harrison fan, but I must say this book was confusing for me.
There were so many factions to contend with, such Inderlanders, which are non-human races. These include Elves,Demons,Witches, Pixies and others not dealt with in this book. There are Vampires, living and undead. Living vampires are normal humans who have been infected by the vampire virus. The undead Vampires were born already infected by the virus and are the superior of the two. Another group are the Weres, which are lycanthropes. In this book all of these factions or groups were being influenced by some wild magic and not in a good way. I was hard for me to keep everything straight so I finally gave up and just concentrated on the growing relationship between Rachel Morgan and Trent Kalamack.
