6547188Black Magic Sanction, eighth in the Hollows series by Kim Harrison.  I read this by July 22nd 2010.

It is a fantastic installment to the Hollows series.  Feels a lot like Changes, where Rachel turn for help everywhere and constantly gets turned away.

Matalina sadly dies, but Jenks at least lives on for his kids and Rachel.  So it’s a bit sad, but very touching.

We get more info on the link between demons witches and elves which was pretty cool.  And Trent and Rachel kinda make peace here at the end, which is weird but good because then at least she has one less person out for her blood.
