The Blurb:

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.

The Review
A Perfect Blood by Kim Harrison was a pretty good book. I didn’t think it was as good as Pale Demon, but that’s going to be hard to top.

I’m really enjoying the Rachel/Trent brewing romance. I’ve been waiting on it for a long time.

The first chunk of the book was hard to read. Rachel has come so far and to backslide into this “no, I’m just going to hide now” was hard to watch. But as an author, I get it. She had to go there to move past it. A ton of people can’t stand Persephone for the same reason, but you can’t just skip that bit of character development. At least I can’t. Hopefully this means no more wringing of hands and whining now that everything is on her terms. But I didn’t get how she was so helpless. Book one she just had earth magic and moxie and it got her pretty far.

I really enjoyed the mystery in this book. Great bad guys. I’m very excited to see where the next book leads.
