My Hollows reread continues as we count down to the release of American Demon!
Werewolves have begun to gather in Michigan. Multiple packs are binding themselves to one wolf, and their behavior is erratic and aggressive. To make matters worse, Nick has stolen an artifact they all want. Now he's being held captive by the wolves, and they will do anything to find their prize. A desperate call from Jax is the only clue Rachel has to find Nick before it's too late. And too much exposure to the cold will put Jax into a deep hibernation he may never wake from. Jenks could care less about Nick, but he will do whatever he has to save his son Jax. Rachel and Jenks team up once again to go on what should be a simple grab and run. But can things ever be simple for Rachel?
Rachel's been toeing the line between white and black magic, but this time around she may just have to twist a curse or two. She doesn't want to be labeled as a black witch, but without the curses, she may not survive. Society has conditioned her to believe that all black witches are evil, and yet not all curses are bad. But even if they don't require blood and sacrifice, the imbalance of nature they create stains the soul. If Rachel invokes a curse, her aura will be black. Anyone and everyone will know what she has done if she puts up a circle in front of them. Is it worth the risk?
For the most part, Ivy is going to take a backseat in this one. Rachel and Jenks have some catching up to do, and fences to mend. However, readers will have a chance to learn about Ivy's past and how she became the uptight living vamp we know. And while learning about your roommate's tortured past would scare most people away, it drives Rachel and Ivy even closer together.
