Worlds collide when Rachel Morgan of The Hollows meets Peri Reed of The Drafter in this exciting new short story from #1 New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison.

The paranormal and the futuristic meet in this thrilling novella featuring your favorite badass heroines from two of “the amazingly gifted” (RT Book Reviews) Kim Harrison’s most beloved series: the Hollows and the Peri Reed Chronicles. The magic of the Hollows runs full force into the technological sophistication of The Drafter when a device capable of carrying a city’s data stream pulls Rachel, the bounty hunter witch of the Hollows, between realities, marooning her in a world where the supernatural holds no sway. To get Rachel and Jenks home, Peri, the dangerous renegade of 2030, must decide what will chart her future: her blind trust in those who grant her power, or her intuition telling her to believe.

WAYLAID was short and sweet, but satisfying.

It was pretty neat seeing Rachel and Peri together. They both have great personalities and together they were pretty fun, add Jenks to the mix and it's a party. I liked how Harrison managed to blend the characters into Peri's world. Rachel was definitely not in her own time and place, but she handled it like I expected her to and it all was pretty smooth.

I really miss Rachel and I am not a huge fan of going backwards in story timelines, but Peri's part was still enjoyable and I liked seeing Rachel again after the ending of her series. I hope that Rachel and Jenks visit somehow plays a part in a later Peri novel.

I gave it 4/5 stars
