Million Dollar Demon by Kim Harrison

Only the dead rule the Hollows. Million Dollar Demon by Kim Harrison on sale June 15th.

To save the city, Rachel Morgan will need to show some teeth in the next Hollows novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison.

The new master vampire of Cincinnati has arrived... and she wants Rachel Morgan out. No matter where Rachel goes, Constance is there—threatening Rachel's allies, causing city-wide chaos, and, to add insult to injury, even forcing Rachel out of her current quarters. Ever since Rachel found a way to save the souls of vampires, the old undead's longtime ascendancy has been broken. Now Constance sees eliminating Rachel as the key to consolidating her own power.

Rachel has no desire to be enthralled or killed—and she's terrified of what may become of the city if Constance forces a return to the ancient ways. But even a witch-born demon can't stand against the old undead—at least, not alone. And if Rachel refuses to claim the role of Cincinnati's master demon, the city will tear itself apart, taking her and all those who stand beside her with it.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Million Dollar Demon is the 15th installment in the Hollows series. No, it most certainly cannot be read as a standalone, nor do I recommend reading out of series order.

Opening a Hollows novel is always a homecoming for me. Rachel and company feel like family, experiencing a warm and fuzzy vibe to visit them again, reading slowly as to harness that feeling.

When Harrison announced she was ending the series, I felt satisfied with the open-ending she provided. When she came back and announced we were getting more itchy witch action, I was ecstatic. Million Dollar Demon is the second installment since the "finale," the overall vibe exactly as its predecessors.

Our Cookie Maker is taking the littles on vacation to their elven family, Ellspeth always lurking about to keep the reader on our toes, never quite sure if Rachel and Trent are living their happily ever after as a couple. The constant threat of elven politics, the fact that Trent could have more babies with Ellspeth, and the worry that Rachel being his partner destroys his political position. Yummy angst, but Trent is nothing if not willing to stand up for himself and what he wants.

The previous installment set up the events in this one. Rachel is searching for a "home," learning what it means to be a demon while on the outs with Big Al, while dealing with the new master of Cincinnati. To be honest, I'm sad about the church because it was such a staple in the series, but all things must come to an end and change, right? Then there is Kist's boat. I'll never let Kist go – that pain just never ebbs for me.

There is more vampire action than usual, as that is a major plot point this go around, with the changing of the guard. Vampires are most certainly political animals with control issues, never missing a chance to use their pheromones as a seduction technique. Classic vampires, where even when dealing with the new head in charge, you must always be leery of their second, because they too might be posturing for the top position, wielding all those same vampire advantages against you.

Poor Rachel, but she has the help of her trusty friends. In this installment, the friends and allies take a step back, as they can sometimes be overpowering scene-stealers in the best possible way. Not much Ivy, which is understandable, but this allows Rachel to shine in the spotlight as she comes into her own. She does what she has to do, entertaining the reader as the pages fly by. All too soon the book is over, I had to say goodbye until the next installment. Forever making me hunger for another series reread.
