The second book in Kim Harrison’s Hollows series delivers just as much fun and action as the first. The story follows Rachel Morgan, now free of the IS, but still in plenty of trouble. She still wears a demon mark, which wasn’t her fault, but where ever Rachel is trouble follows.
The cast of delightful characters from the first novel are back, the seductive damaged vampire Ivy, the loveable potty mouth pixy Jenks, dubious and cunning politician Trent Kalmanack. As well as introducing new ones, the ancient powerful vampire Piscary, the human with a taste for danger Nick and the sexy bad boy vampire Kisten.
This time, Rachel is brought in on a case to find a serial killer that is making his way through the city’s best ley line witches in short order. When all the clues lead point Trent, Rachel goes deep undercover in the guise of a minx and finds herself in even deeper water than she could have imagined.  
The hollows series isn’t as fast paced as some of the other novels on the market, it actually uses clever interactions, and intrigue to build the story before it climatic finish. The plot is filled with twists that keeps the reader interested, and the world constantly builds and expands upon itself making for excellent story telling.
