Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine to share what books we are most looking forward to.

Pale Demon
By: Kim Harrison
Publication Date:  February 22 2011

From Goodreads:

Condemned to death for black magic and shunned, Rachel Morgan has three days to somehow get to the annual witches convention in San Francisco and clear her name. If she fails, the only way she can escape death is to live in the demonic ever after . . . for ever after. 

Banned from the flight lists, Rachel teams up with elven tycoon Trent Kalamack, headed for the West Coast for her own mysterious business. But Rachel isn’t the only passanger along for the ride. Can a witch, an elf, a living vampire, and a pixy in one car survive for over 2,300 miles? And that’s not counting the assassin on their tail. 

A fearsome demon walks the sunlight, freed after centuries of torment to slay the innocent and devour souls. But his ultimate prey is Rachel Morgan. While the powerful witch with nerves of steel will do whatever it takes to stay alive, even embracing her own demonic nature may not be enough to save her.






I LOVE this series.  I discovered Kim Harrison's books while I was commuting to college.  Instead of doing homework, I read about Rachel Morgan.  I hate hate hate that they went to hardcover but I am such an extreme fangirl of this series that I buy them anyways.  It is the only series I buy in hardcover. Even my beloved Dresden files must wait a whole friggin' year for the paperbacks to come out before I purchase them ( and don't even get me started on the new covers, or the fact that the new books coming out in paperback are half and inch taller then the previous paperbacks  GRR!!!!!!!!)   


A lot of people gripe about how Rachel hasn't grown in any of the books and that she still makes all the same mistakes but I don't care.  As long as I get my yearly dose of Jenks and Algaliarept I'm happy  :)








This is the tenth book in the series and these are definitely not stand alones.  I highly recommend starting at the beginning, plus, then you have something to keep you busy until February!  


The book order is as follows:  Dead Witch Walking, The Good, the Bad, and the Undead, Every Which Way but Dead, A Fistful of Charms, For a Few Demons More, The Outlaw Demon Wails, White Witch, Black Curse, and Black Magic Sanction.  Phew!

Oh I love this series!! I agree with you I have paperbacks and then BAM hardcover. I can't wait until this book comes out and I'm hoping for at least a little Trent and I'll be happy. February can't come fast enough :)
