Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

<p>"I wouldn't miss a Kim Harrison book for anything."<br> --Charlaine Harris</p> <p>There's nothing more darkly satisfying than time spent in the Hollows--New York Times bestseller Kim Harrison's alternate urban fantasy Cincinnati where vampires, pixies, and werewolves roam free. Harrison takes us back in A Perfect Blood, as former bounty hunter witch-turned-reluctant daywalking demon Rachel Morgan investigates a series of ritual murders, only to discover to her horror that whomever--or whatever--is responsible is actually seeking her blood. Rachel's sexy, supernatural adventures have consistently landed atop bestseller lists from coast-to-coast, and A Perfect Blood is no exception--another supremely satisfying excursion to a deliciously eerie fantasy realm that's certain to delight Kim Harrison's voracious army of fans...not to mention Laurell K. Hamilton, Charlaine Harris, Jim Butcher, Kelley Armstrong, Patricia Briggs, and Stephanie Meyers aficionados, and any reader who craves a walk on the wild, dark side.<br></p>

Library Journal Review

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.
