Series: The Hollows #15
Author: Kim Harrison
Publisher: Ace Books
Released: June 15, 2021
How is it that we’re fifteen novels into The Hollows series? It’s hard to believe that there have been so many, and yet I’m already looking forward to whatever comes next! Million Dollar Demon, by Kim Harrison, is not a novel to miss for fans of Rachel Morgan and all of the chaos she brings with her.
The powers that be have decided that Cincinnati needs to new master vampire, and we all know how well that is going to go. Rachel Morgan has a habit of getting in the way of master vampires, and this time the new master is gunning for her.
That would be fine, except this master is willing to tear through the city to get to Rachel. Meaning it is officially time for Rachel to step up and protect the city. Again. She’ll just have to find a way to win this fight without compromising her ideals.
“Tradition-entrenched, frightened old farts blind to reality.”
Have I mentioned how thrilled I am that we’re getting new Hollows series? Every new announcement has successfully made my day, as I hadn’t realized how much I would miss Rachel and her antics.
Moving onto the actual review now, Million Dollar Demon is absolute perfection. This is the sequel that fans and characters alike deserved. It’s tense and thrilling and showcases some of the best (and worst) that Rachel has to offer.
Frankly, there is so much to enjoy about this novel. I think my favorite bits involved the politics (what a shock, I know) and the clever lengths that Rachel went to find a way out of her current predicament.
That being said, it is by no means the only exciting element in Million Dollar Demon. Trent, Jenks (I adore that little dude), and all the rest make an appearance, as well as a few surprises. Combined with all of the subplots surrounding them, it made for one very full novel – one that I couldn’t get enough of.
It’s fascinating to see how the previous novels and their plots still play a role in what is happening now. Rachel is still reeling from all of the demon and elf business, and I, for one, cannot wait to see how that all will ultimately play out (unfortunately, I do actually have to wait…it’ll be worth it!).
I adored Million Dollar Demon and the thousands of details that worked their way into the plot. Honestly, reading the latest installment has made me crave all of the other books, so I think that a re-read is in order. And that is how you know the sequel is a success. Until next time!
