The Books We Can’t Wait to Read: February 2014

The Undead Pool, by Kim Harrison (February 25)dead pool

Oh, Kim Harrison. Oh, Rachel Morgan. I don’t think it’s any secret, based on how many times we’ve interviewed Harrison and featured her books, that I’m a huge fangirl. The Hollows series is, I believe, one of the finest representations of a great urban fantasy. There are witches and vampires, werewolves and the most sarcastic, potty-mouthed pixie you will ever read in the genre. It’s absolute perfection.

At the end of the month, Harrison fans will get a gander at the second to last book in the series, The Undead Pool. While we mourn the end of this great series, we can all celebrate the creativity, imagination and humor that Harrison has given us with her past twelve books.  Bunny eared Kiss-Kiss to you, Mrs. Harrison!

#1 New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison returns to the supernatural adventures of Rachel Morgan in the penultimate book of the Hollows series

Witch and day-walking demon Rachel Morgan knows magic—earth, ley line, even the forbidden demon magic—and that knowledge has saved her life more than once. But now something—or someone—is attacking Cincinnati and the Hollows, causing spells to backfire or go horribly wrong while living vampires attack humans and Inderlanders alike.

The pressures build when the city is quarantined to contain the unreliable magic, and Rachel must stop the attacks before the undead vampire masters who keep the rest of the undead under control are lost and it becomes all-out supernatural war.

The only way to do so is through the ancient elven magic, but that carries its own perils—for magic always has a price, and gods do not come lightly when called.
