White Witch, Black Curse by Kim Harrison


From the book: Some wounds take time to heal . . . and some scars never fade.
Rachel Morgan, kick-ass witch and bounty hunter, has taken her fair share of hits, and has broken lines she swore she would never cross. But when her lover was murdered, it left a deeper wound than Rachel ever imagined, and now she won't rest until his death is solved . . . and avenged. Whatever the cost.
Yet the road to hell is paved with good intentions, and when a new predator moves to the apex of the Inderlander food chain, Rachel's past comes back to haunt her. Literally.

My Thoughts: I was anxiously waiting for this book and it wasn't what I was expecting. At 500 pages I think a lot of things could have been left out or condensed and other things brought forward. For example : less of Ivy and Rachel and Jinx forever going on and on about the relationship Ivy and Rachel long for with each other but don't have. More info please about Matilda, Jinx's' sickly wife.
I'm sorry, the above seems like griping and I only wish I could write well enough to write fiction like Kim Harrison has given us. I have loved this series and even though this book was a little disappointing to me, in the end I enjoyed it and look forward to more in this series. At least we found out who killed Kisten. The hook at the end has me ready to read more. Trent sent Rachel a Pandora charm to help her remember. Remember what will be in the next book! If you haven't read this series do not start with this one.

Have you read the first two? What did you think of them?
I've only read Dead Witch Walking and I was a bit undecided whether to continue with the series.

I think you can paste the award 3x.
I wonder if that has happened before?
I got so excited I left an "ocsar acceptance speech".I think you get to make a presidential speech.
