Kim Harrison’s A Perfect Blood, the tenth book in her Hollows series, is out February 21, but Harper Voyager has released an excerpt now to whip us all into a frenzy. What’s remarkable about this series is that its protagonist, Rachel Morgan, has changed so much, but some things remain the same: Her beat-up car, inability to hold a license, love of trashy clothing, and exasperation with bureaucracy. And unlike some series where the familiar becomes a lazy shorthand touchstone (certain type of snack, car, clothing, etc.), Rachel’s constants are integral to each story and change themselves. Here is the blurb for A Perfect Blood:
Ritually murdered corpses are appearing across Cincinnati, terrifying amalgams of human and other. Pulled in to help investigate by the I.S. and the FIB, former witch turned day-walking demon Rachel Morgan soon realizes a horrifying truth: a human hate group is trying to create its own demons to destroy all Inderlanders, and to do so, it needs her blood.
She’s faced vampires, witches, werewolves, demons, and more, but humanity itself might be her toughest challenge yet.
