Black Magic Sanction by Kim Harrison

About the book:Rachel Morgan has fought and hunted vampires, werewolves, banshees, demons, and other supernatural dangers as both witch and bounty hunter--and lived to tell the tale. But she's never faced off against her own kind . . . until now. Denounced and shunned for dealing with demons and black magic, her best hope is life imprisonment--at worst, a forced lobotomy and genetic slavery.Only her enemies are strong enough to help her win her freedom, but trust comes hard when it hinges on the unscrupulous tycoon Trent Kalamack, the demon Algaliarept, and an ex-boyfriend turned thief.

First line: Tucking my hair back, I squinted at the parchment, trying to form the strange angular letters as smoothly as I could.

My thoughts: This is the eighth book in the Rachel Morgan series. The whole story revolves around the fact that Rachel has been shunned by her the witches for being able to kindle demon magic. Her search for a way to save herself was somewhat disjointed what with hopping from place to place with help from so many people it was hard to keep straight. I have read and enjoyed them all including this one. However this one is among my least favorite of this series.

Quote: Oh, I was still impressed with Pierce’s magic that far outstripped mine. His quick one-liners in his odd accent aimed at Al when the demon wasn’t listening still made me smirk. And I wasn’t looking at his long wavy hair, or his lanky build, much less his tight ass. Damn it.
