“I wouldn’t miss a Kim Harrison book for anything.”
—Charlaine Harris

There’s nothing more darkly satisfying than time spent in the Hollows—New York Times bestseller Kim Harrison’s alternate urban fantasy Cincinnati where vampires, pixies, and werewolves roam free. Harrison takes us back in A Perfect Blood, as former bounty hunter witch-turned-reluctant daywalking demon Rachel Morgan investigates a series of ritual murders, only to discover to her horror that whomever—or whatever—is responsible is actually seeking her blood.  Rachel’s sexy, supernatural adventures have consistently landed atop bestseller lists from coast-to-coast, and A Perfect Blood is no exception—another supremely satisfying excursion to a deliciously eerie fantasy realm that’s certain to delight Kim Harrison’s voracious army of fans…not to mention Laurell K. Hamilton, Charlaine Harris, Jim Butcher, Kelley Armstrong, Patricia Briggs, and Stephanie Meyers aficionados, and any reader who craves a walk on the wild, dark side.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The pace and tone of A Perfect Blood reflects its protagonist: a little more cautious, reflective and purposeful, and the book is more powerful as a result…Harrison provides the strongest and most self-assured Rachel we’ve seen yet.”

    Miami Herald

  • “Harrison has, by now, fleshed out an exceedingly satisfying and well-rendered world that is much more than the usual paranormal backdrop…First-time readers will find this volume a good introduction to Harrison’s landmark urban fantasy series.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “With the end of this popular series coming soon, fans will be savoring the remaining episodes all the more, and those who have delayed entry will begin jumping on board.”  

    Booklist

  • “Harrison’s colorful cast of supporting characters keeps the story moving among the fast-paced action scenes. Longtime fans will obviously be standing in line for this one. However, readers with any interest in urban fantasy can easily jump into the story.”

    " Can't wait for the next book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kevin | 2/12/2014

    " As ever, a fun series. The title fits, though I don't quite see how it falls into the Clint Eastwood title/wordplay theme of the other ones. If any of you "get it" for the title, please let me know. And no, The Perfect Storm is not a Clint Eastwood title. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cazy | 2/8/2014

    " Man. Rachel really gets on my nerves. But her lack of decisive actions and hr constant whining really infuriated me. The action was great as always, but she was acting more like a girl and less like a woman. She was way more ruthless and decisive in her first book. It seems like Rachel is scared of violence and sex...but she's always playing around with both at the expense of her own life, then she ends up feeling guilty. Geesh. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sherrie | 1/31/2014

    " I think out of the series this book has been one of my favorites I cant even say how much I absolutely love this series and cannot wait for the next book Ever After #11 to come out in 2013 so excited but really bummed that I have to wait for it because I think it has taken me about 3 to 4 months to go through the series up to this point! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lonnie Tapia | 1/22/2014

    " Another fun Rachel Morgan novel, filled with the best elements of the series and none of the nightmare inducing ones. But then agan, I scare easily. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jimmie | 1/15/2014

    " Rachel has a new partner. But a partner on how many levels? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barb | 1/11/2014

    " I love Kim Harrison's "Hallow" series. Can't wait for the next one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 CaroleDee | 1/4/2014

    " Things really seemed to drag in this one. The story was enjoyable, but there were too many parts that seemed to drag it out. At one point everyone was getting prepared to raid a "baddie" hideout and it just went on and on. Honestly, do we need a 6 page dialogue about how the bust is going to go down? No so much. I want to read about the actual take-down, not the preparation of it. Not to mention one of the baddies must have been related to Freddy Krueger because that guy wouldn't stay down. Rachel is still annoying at times, Ivy still has her "emo vampire sex goddess" thing going, Jenks is still hilarious, Trent is still (for the most part) a mystery, and Al does make an appearance towards the end (which just wasn't enough Al for me. I <3 him). I'm sure I'll grab the next Hallows book the day it's released, but if Rachel doesn't quit annoying the crap out of me I might not continue past the next installment. "

    " Another great adventure with Rachel! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Becky | 12/16/2013

    " Not the best Rachel Morgan there is...probably because of the no magic thing for half the book. "

    " Nice additon to the series, Rachel really needs a boyfriend soulmate to help move this series along. ONe of my favorite parts was discussion around Trent, Ceri and their girls. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christopher | 6/15/2013

    " After the less than satisfactory beginning RM finally grows up and starts paying attention. The latter half of the book made up for the annoyances in the first part, but not enough to rate 5. Love the series but RM is so freaking childish it drives me insane sometimes. "

    " I don't want to get into spoilers, so I'll just say - This book is a good addition to the series. I like that Harrison is staying consistent and showing growth and development with all the major characters. I'm really liking the direction she's going with the series in general. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alicia | 5/27/2012

    " I love this series. It keeps getting better. I need to pick up book #11 and can't wait to read it but its bittersweet. I don't want to see the series end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alice | 4/30/2012

    " Rachel wasn't as whiny and guilt ridden as she has been in some of the other books in the series. There was a lot of the handsome elf, Trent (I think that's his name). Very cool plot. "
