Pale Demon is book 9 in the Rachel Morgan series. I have followed Ms. Harrison from the first with this series and I had found that with her last few books I was losing interest. Pale Demon just made me a fan all over again! Whatever I felt was missing, has been found! It all starts with Rachel needing to travel out west to seek a pardon with the Coven of Moral and Ethical Standards for using black magic. In comes Trent needing to get to the west as well for personal reasons. With Rachel not being able to fly, a road trip is the answer. So Rachel, Trent and Jenks set out, later joined by Ivy, Peirce and a surprise member that was so not expected! Along the way they encounter assassination attempts, a new demon known as the pale demon. It’s so bad ass that even the other demons are scared of him. They are stuck in a rat trap of a car and have lots of time to get to know one another. Let the good times roll!!!
Again I just thought Pale Demon was awesome! Mainly because I love Trent and Rachel's chemistry, how they spar back and forth. Jenks is back in a whole new way, and provides most of the greatest one liner’s out there! I cannot wait to see what happens next, and I hate that I have to wait so long to find out!

Condemned to death for black magic and shunned, Rachel Morgan has three days to somehow get to the annual witches convention in San Francisco and clear her name. If she fails, the only way she can escape death is to live in the demonic ever after . . . for ever after.
Banned from the flight lists, Rachel teams up with elven tycoon Trent Kalamack, headed for the West Coast for her own mysterious business. But Rachel isn't the only passanger along for the ride. Can a witch, an elf, a living vampire, and a pixy in one car survive for over 2,300 miles? And that's not counting the assassin on their tail.
A fearsome demon walks the sunlight, freed after centuries of torment to slay the innocent and devour souls. But his ultimate prey is Rachel Morgan. While the powerful witch with nerves of steel will do whatever it takes to stay alive, even embracing her own demonic nature may not be enough to save her.
