Review--A Perfect Blood by Kim Harrison

New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison returns to the Hollows with the electrifying follow-up to her acclaimed Pale Demon!

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 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.

Finally finished Kim Harrison's latest A Perfect Blood! Just weeks before it goes paperback! Whew!

As with all Kim's Hollow books it was awesome! Rachel finds herself in yet another pickle! She is wearing her band of silver, cut off from her powers. Yet she can still kick ass! Just not at the DMV apparently, where all of Rachel's problems begin!

Soon she finds herself working with the I.S. and FIB trying to find a group of humans, know as HAPA, who hate Inderlanders and everything supernatural. Rachel is deep into the case, trying to track down the bad guys when she gets caught by them. Whoops.

Rachel soon realizes just how evil some humans can be. She is more determined than ever to escape and bring these bad guys to justice. And escape she does...eventually!

Trent is back! We all had our Trent love in Pale Demon and that seems to continue--for me at least--here! Trent really comes through for Rachel on several counts as they work to bring down the bad guys and find out who's helping them.

A Perfect Blood was a perfect read! Yeah, couldn't resist! I loooove the Hollows! Would so visit there myself and enjoy a slice of pizza with Rachel, Ivy and Jenks! Jenks is as wonderful as ever! His snarkiness never ceases to amaze me and I lol'd several times at his outbursts!

The pacing was perfect! There's usually one major problem Rachel focuses on and then a little thing or two pops up, but there's incredible buildup to the problems and other problems stemming from that! And yet, at the end all is resolved. Of course you get the glimmer of things to come, we know that Rachel isn't in for a HEA just yet!

This is definitely one of my all time favorite series, being one of the first I started when I began reading adult books so many years ago! Think Kim was at book 2 at that time! I look forward to seeing how she wraps the series up as I believe there is only 2 more books, but I can't recall at the moment!

I highly recommend this series if you're looking for an action packed, mystery base story filled with colorful supernatural characters and of course the witty snarkiness that is Jenks! And Rachel can be pretty snark too!

Overall rating 5/5 stars


  1. I can't wait to see what happens next for Rachel. It seemed in a Perfect Blood that a lot of things were changing in her life.
    I'm definitely eager to get my hands on Ever After as well as the completion of novellas in, Into the Woods. I really want to read Million Dollar Baby.
    Great Review!!

  2. I can't wait to read this series. You introduced me to them..and I am so glad! The main character sounds really badass...and I LOVE those types of heroines! LOL ;p Great review! :D
