Early Review: Million Dollar Demon by Kim Harrison

Million Dollar Demon by Kim Harrison
The Hollows #15
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.

If American Demon was the appetizer foray back into the Hollows, then MILLION DOLLAR DEMON was the full entrée and then some. Rachel, Jenks, Trent, and company are fully back and here to stay, and I couldn't be happier. I can't express how much I enjoyed this book. While Rachel has mostly grown and found/accepted herself, there's still a bit of hesitancy on her part whenever it comes to accepting a role of power. The new master vampire, Constance, is bonkers and insanely brutal, and as a result, the community is pressing hard on Rachel to step up. Of course stepping up has never been a problem for her, but it's to the level needed that has her on edge. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of this new journey and new role for Rachel. 

Another great thing about the Hollows is the large cast of characters and the relationships, family, platonic, romantic or otherwise. Rachel and Trent are as happy as ever,  even if the Elven Dewar and Ellsbeth try and throw wrenches into things. And Jenks... as always, the bond between him and Rachel is by far my favorite, and it warms my heart to see it continue. However, one relationship hasn't been quite what it once was, Al and Rachel. I'm so hopeful that starts to turn around quickly, but it's more than a little sad at the moment to see them at such odds. Regardless of the current status, it's these relationships and all the so many others that make this series so incredible.

All in all, MILLION DOLLAR DEMON was an utterly fantastic read that I couldn't put down. Fans of the series will be more than pleased with this installment and clamoring for more!
