"With the end of this popular series coming soon, fans will be
savoring the remaining episodes all the more, and those who have
delayed entry will begin jumping on board."--Booklist
"Harrison's colorful cast of supporting characters keeps the story moving among the fast-paced action scenes. Longtime fans will obviously be standing in line for this one. However, readers with any interest in urban fantasy can easily jump into the story."--Library Journal
"The pace and tone of A Perfect Blood reflects its protagonist: a little more cautious, reflective and purposeful, and the book is more powerful as a result...Harrison provides the strongest and most self-assured Rachel we've seen yet."--Miami Herald
"Kim Harrison has created a popular series that captures the imagination."--North County Times
In Harrison's tenth series installment (after Pale Demon), Rachel Morgan, a witch-turned-demon, is drawn to the crime scene of a tortured and mutilated university student strung up in a park gazebo. Working with both supernatural-run and human-run police agencies, Rachel investigates more ritualistic murders thought to be carried out by a hate group, Humans Against Paranormals Association (HAPA). HAPA is attempting to create its own demons but needs Rachel's unique blood to be successful. While simultaneously trying to fight HAPA and evade being kidnapped by the group, Rachel also struggles with her identity as a demon. VERDICT Harrison's colorful cast of supporting characters (a foul-mouthed pixy, a frustrated werewolf bodyguard, a cat-riding fairy, and a posh vampire) keeps the story moving among the fast-paced action scenes. Longtime fans will obviously be standing in line for this one. However, readers with any interest in urban fantasy can easily jump into the story via Harrison's explanations of past events.
