Review: American Demon by Kim Harrison

American Demon by Kim Harrison
The Hollows #14

Rachel Morgan is back--and The Hollows will never be the same.

What happens after you've saved the world? Well, if you're Rachel Mariana Morgan, witch-born demon, you quickly discover that something might have gone just a little bit wrong. That the very same acts you and your friends took to forge new powers may have released something bound by the old. With a rash of zombies, some strange new murders, and an exceedingly mysterious new demon in town, it will take everything Rachel has to counter this new threat to the world--and it may demand the sacrifice of what she holds most dear.

When I first picked up AMERICAN DEMON, I had assumed it would pick up after the epilogue of The Witch With No Name, but it actually picks up a short time after the actual ending events of that book. I'll admit that for the first few chapters of this book I was rather confused as it just didn't mesh with the epic HEA from that original epilogue. And then, I realized I didn't care, as regardless of the timeline, there's more Rachel books, which means a YAY from me. 

Things are anything but rosy for Rachel and company as despite all she did to save the world, politics and complications derail pretty much everything. And frankly, that makes for the BEST kinds of books. While the poor characters are going through chaos and turmoil, it keeps the reader sucked in, and Kim Harrison is a master at her craft in this aspect. She's not afraid to take big risks, and this book was no exception. The church gang is "breaking up" with Ivy gravitating more towards Nina, the demons are living in plain sight, Trent's leadership is being challenged, all while him and Rachel try and foster their budding relationship, and oh so much more. This book is jammed packed and I loved every single moment of it.

All in all, AMERICAN DEMON is another smash hit in this amazing series, and I can't wait to see what happens next!
