BOOK REVIEW: HOLIDAYS ARE HELL

Patrol Log:  11103142018




Rated it








This holiday, spend quality time with family and loved ones—living and dead . . .

There's no place like home for the horrordays—unless you'd prefer a romantic midnight walk through a ghost-infested graveyard . . . or a haunted house candlelight dinner with the sexy vampire of your dreams. The (black) magical season is here—and whether it's a solstice séance gone demonically wrong with the incomparable Kim Harrison, a grossly misshapen Christmas with the remarkable Lynsay Sands, a blood-chilling-and-spilling New Year's with the wonderful Marjorie M. Liu, or a super-powered Thanksgiving with the phenomenal Vicki Pettersson, one thing is for certain: in the able hands of these exceptional dark side explorers, the holidays are going to be deliciously
hellish!




Rachel Morgan, our beloved witch from the Hollows series, is back, but in this endearing novella she is just a child straight out of school and ready to fight the world! Gung ho on working for Interland Security like her father before her, Rachel attempts to manipulate her mother in order to get the application signed. When her older brother Rob comes into town after a five year stint, the two get in way over their heads, and Rachel finds out just how powerful of a witch she really is!


This story takes us back in time, and it was truly amazing! To see Rachel at such a young age, and learn first hand how it was to live with her mother, the struggles they both still endure with the loss of her father and just the nostalgia made me all giddy inside. Rachel's mother wants her to do whatever she wants to do, BUT she fears working for IS, the very people that her father worked for when he died, has Rachel believing that her mother will not consent. As she tries to figure a way out, her brother Rob comes home for a surprise visit. Rob makes it very clear to her what he wants for Rachel's future, and the two make a bet. Oh boy what a bet! Just when I thought the adventure ends, BAM! The thrill of the ride these two take is unbelievable! Rachel was born to kick ass, and she proves this by how she handles her first case doing what she does best...not listening to anyone, lol. OH, and we have a surprise guest! Holy shit, I was like OMG NO WAY!


The story surely will pull at your heart strings if you are a fan of the Hollows series. Kim Harrison pulled no punches, and left me with a tear in my eye in the end. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this story!
