Review copy source: early review program

Condemned to death for black magic and shunned, Rachel Morgan has three days to somehow get to the annual witches convention in San Francisco and clear her name. If she fails, the only way she can escape death is to live in the demonic ever after . . . for ever after.

Banned from the flight lists, Rachel teams up with elven tycoon Trent Kalamack, headed for the West Coast for his own mysterious business. But Rachel isn’t the only passanger along for the ride. Can a witch, an elf, a living vampire, and a pixy in one car survive for over 2,300 miles? And that’s not counting the assassin on their tail.

A fearsome demon walks the sunlight, freed after centuries of torment to slay the innocent and devour souls. But his ultimate prey is Rachel Morgan. While the powerful witch with nerves of steel will do whatever it takes to stay alive, even embracing her own demonic nature may not be enough to save her.

Im going to start off by telling you have to start at book 1 DEAD WITCH WALKING to follow along with the Rachel Morgan/The Hollows series or you will miss way to much.

Rachel really has grown a ton throughout this series. I cried quite a bit during PALE DEMON. There is a ton of shocking and good surprises, lots of new information and situations. Lots of feelings finally coming to pass. Rachel never has anything to come to her easily and there is ton of tough situations, drama and fighting for life situations. I love all the characters in The Hollows they never disappoint me. I have high hopes for a certain relationship that might be starting. PALE DEMON was a fantastic edition to The Hollows that leaves a lot open at the end to bring into the next book of the series CAN'T wait to read more.

I gave it 5/5 stars
