Book Review: The Outlaw Demon Wails (Rachel Morgan #6) by Kim Harrison

To save the lives of her friends, Rachel did the unthinkable: she willingly trafficked in forbidden demon magic. And now her sins are coming home to haunt her.

As Rachel searches for the truth behind a terrifying murder, an even greater menace threatens, for the demon Algaliarept will stop at nothing to claim her, and the discovery of a shocking family secret throws Rachel's entire life into question. If she is ever to live free, Rachel must first walk willingly into the demonic ever-after in search of long-lost ancient knowledge.

But when you dance with demons, you lay your soul on the line...and there are some lines that should never be crossed.
Another reliably entertaining installment in the Rachel Morgan series. I'm getting a little tired of Rachel's bad decisions, and I found this book to be a somewhat predictable. Nonetheless, Harrison is nothing if not consistent. Rachel and Ivy come to an understanding, and I'm looking forward to Rachel not lusting after Ivy to bite her every 50 pages. Now if only Rachel could get rid of her unclaimed vampire bite. Reading about the vamp phermones is getting old. So it feels great, I get it!

I really liked the addition of Bis the gargoyle, whom I hope to learn more about in the next books, and of course I still adore Jenks. I wish Rachel would make him big again...

Just One Gripe:
Rachel makes bad decisions and they're getting old!

The Best Thing About This Book:
The understanding between Rachel and Ivy.
