Book Review: The Undead Pool

Hello Everyone,

As you know I love to read and want to share with you the new book released by one of my favorite authors, Kim Harrison. The new book is Undead Pool, released February 25th, 2014 is the 12th in the series. 

Amazon Story line: Supernatural superhero Rachel Morgan must counter a strange magic that could spell civil war for the Hollows in this sexy and bewitching urban fantasy adventure in acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison's Hollows series. Witch and day-walking demon Rachel Morgan has managed to save the demonic ever after from shrinking, but at a high cost. Now, strange magic is attacking Cincinnati and the Hollows, causing spells to backfire or go horribly wrong, and the truce between the races, between Inderlander and human, is shattering. Rachel must stop this dark necromancy before the undead vampire masters who keep the rest of the undead under control are lost and all-out supernatural war breaks out. Rachel knows of only weapon to ensure the peace: ancient elven wild magic, which carries its own perils. And no one know better than Rachel that no good deed goes unpunished.

My Thoughts: Spoiler alert – I am so happy to see the development of the relationship between Trent and Rachel. I know we have all been rooting for this relationship for quite some time. I was excited to hear from Kim Harrison at the 2012s NY Comic Con. She stated that we had 3 more books to go so I think now we either have one or two left before the series ends. She is wrapping up ties. We know that Nick is now dead. We are learning more and more about what may have driven Newt crazy. We are seeing the possible separation of Rachel and Ivy. I think this might be the only series that ends in a way that I can enjoy. – End Spoiler Alert

The book was well written and Harrison continues to drive the characters forward. She writes with her end in mind and I am happy to enjoy the ride. I read this book quickly which is always a good sign. I look forward to seeing where the series goes. It has not let me down. The book explores the Elven hierarchy more and we learn what Trent has to deal with. I also enjoyed seeing Bis develop more as a character. I did not put much weight into his development but he has become very important in Rachel's development as a demon.

The relationship between Ivy, Jenks, and Rachel continue to be tested and various ways and they find their trio is now a quartet. Overall a great read. Check out the book and series and let me know your thoughts.
