Book Review: A Fistful of Charms (Rachel Morgan #4) by Kim Harrison

The evil night things that prowl Cincinnati despise witch and bounty hunter Rachel Morgan. Her new reputation for the dark arts is turning human and undead heads alike with the intent to possess, bed, and kill her -- not necessarily in that order.

Now a mortal lover who abandoned Rachel has returned, haunted by his secret past. And there are those who covet what Nick possesses -- savage beasts willing to destroy the Hollows and everyone in it if necessary.

Forced to keep a low profile or eternally suffer the wrath of a vengeful demon, Rachel must nevertheless act quickly. For the pack is gathering for the first time in millennia to ravage and to rule. And suddenly more than Rachel's soul is at stake.

This was my favorite Rachel Morgan book so far. It was very suspenseful! I liked that Rachel "grew up" a little and admitted some things about herself. I loved what transpires with Rachel and Nick's relationship. Rachel Weres in this book and increases her witch skills and the further development of Rachel and Ivy's relationship adds another layer of depth. This book really explored the vampire/shadow relationship as well. And Jenks! Jenks is big almost the entire book! You really get to know Jenks better in this book. Overall, a very enjoyable read from Kim Harrison.

Just One Gripe:
Why does Rachel have to get beaten up every single book?
