The underground population of witches, vampires, werewolves—creatures of dreams and nightmares—has lived beside humans for centuries, hiding their powers. But after a genetically engineered virus wipes out a large part of humanity, many of the "Inderlanders" reveal themselves, changing everything. Rachel Morgan, witch and bounty hunter with the Inderland Runner Services, is one of the best at apprehending supernatural lawbreakers throughout Cincinnati, but when it comes to following the rules, she falls desperately short. Determined to buck the system, she quits and takes off on the run with an I.S. contract on her head and is reluctantly forced to team up with Ivy, Inderland's best runner . . . and a living vampire. But this witch is way out of her league, and to clear her name, Rachel must evade shape-changing assassins, outwit a powerful businessman/crime lord, and survive a vicious underground fight-to-the-death . . . not to mention her own roommate.

This is the first book that I have read by this author and I am so glad that I did because I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is also the first book in the Hollows series which I now know is going to be a series that I am going to not only enjoy but also devour, because as soon as I finished this one I immediately started reading the next one in the series which I am enjoying to. The only reason it took me so long to read this book is because I got distracted with other books as well as life being a tad busy so my head not being in the right place to read it.

The main character Rachel is an amazing Bad ass Bounty Hunter who works for a government agency called Inderland Security, who are responsible for dealing with non law abiding Supernatural creatures (witches, werewolves, vampires), in a post Apocalyptic Cincinnati where the society is divided into human and Inderlander (super natural). Or at least she does until she leaves their employ to start her own agency and takes Ivy and Jenks with her, which earns her an I.S. Assignation contract.   She works with a witty pixy called Jenks and a Vampire named Ivy. She is such a strong and determined and multi dimensional person, who’s a practicing white witch, which is why I felt such a strong connection to her.  Throughout the book I enjoyed seeing how her relationships with Jenks and Ivy matured, and how her relationships with other characters developed.

Jenks and Ivy were also strong, interesting and well developed characters who it was easy to connect with.

The plot development and world building were fantastic and kept you hooked throughout the book, because the author kept dropping new little tit bits in every now and then about different things which meant that I wanted to read on to find out what happened with connection to the tit bit.

I gave this book a five star rating because I enjoyed it so much that I immediately wanted to read the next book, as well as the fact that I would not only recommend it to it to anyone who likes urban fantasy as well as buy it for anyone I know who I think would enjoy it.
