The Outlaw Demon Wails by Kim Harrison

CC library book
This is the sixth book in the Rachel Morgan series.
This book starts right out with the demon action in the very first chapter. Rachel and her mother are shopping for Halloween costumes and talismans when the demon Al appears, destroys the shop, and nearly kills Rachel. Somebody is summoning him and setting him after Rachel. Suddenly, not only is Rachel in danger, but everyone she loves and cares about are too.
In this story Rachel learns that Ceri is pregnant -- and to keep her baby and the elf race healthy, they need a sample of ancient elf tissue from the ever-after. As a journey to the ever-after might help her defeat Al she agrees to go with Trent. Jenks sneaks a ride with Rachel and is the only one who can get the sample.
This is a story of ongoing revelations: Rachel learns of her true nature, how her father died, who her bio-dad is, the father of Ceri's baby, Keasley's true identity. She did not, however, findout who killed Kisten.
In the end she is forced to make another deal with Al to protect her friends and family.
I enjoyed this book, the humor Harrison slipped in was great. Rachel's character grew and matured. I can't wait for the next installment.
If you like Sci/Fi Fantasy I give it a 4. (464 pages)
