Kim Harrison’s The Undead Pool, available now for order online at your favorite local new bookseller, is the next to last novel in her internationally bestselling “The Hollows” urban fantasy series, featuring the genre’s most demonically popular heroine, the bewitching Rachel Morgan. Hear her Voice of the Author interview here.
Rachel is quite well known for unleashing Hell on Earth in a literal sense; or at least for wreaking havoc on the Ever After. But something is seriously amiss in The Hollows—spells are backfiring or going horribly wrong unexpectedly, even the Human-Inderland truce is crumbling—WHAT th-?—and Cincinnati—and Rachel swears it has nothing to do with her own demoniacality. “Not me!” she cries. But it does seem to stem from her ley line. What, then, is causing this eruption of enhanced magicality? On top of everything else, all the master vampires seem to be fast asleep, unwakeably so, and an insurrection of “Free Vampires” is on the rise, led by a living vampire who is the spitting image of Rachel’s deceased (?) lover.
New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison was born and raised in the upper Midwest. Interestingly, an inordinate number of the titles of her published works pay homage to that quirky daredevil, Clint Eastwood. For example, her bestselling Hollows novels include Dead Witch Walking, The Good, The Bad, and The Undead, Every Which Way but Dead, A Fistful of Charms, For a Few Demons More, The Outlaw Demon Walls, White Witch, Black Curse, Black Magic Sanction, Pale Demon, A Perfect Blood, Ever After, plus the short story collections Into the Woods and The Hollows Insider.
