Another enjoyable read from Kim Harrison. Events move along nicely in White Witch, Black Curse, though I wouldn’t say this is my favorite of the series. New, memorable characters are introduced and Algaliarept is as wicked as ever.
As in previous paperbacks, Harrison includes the opening chapter of the next novel and having read this sneak-peak, I think Black Magic Station has lots of possibilities for Rachel Morgan.
Something that is perhaps rare, if not unique, to Harrison’s vampires is the twist on the vampire virus. In her post-Turn Cincinnati, the vampire bite is lethal to other vampires — so if a vamp bites another vamp, the virus-laden saliva will deliver a painfully deadly payload. Certainly not the way I write my vampires.

White Witch, Black Curse is the seventh in a series by Kim Harrison.
White Witch, Black Curse is the seventh in a series by Kim Harrison. A witch named Rachel Morgan tells her story of an alternate Cincinatti where vampires, werewolves and other creatures have emerged from hiding and are now integrated with human society. Rachel earns a living hauling in dangerous supernal suspects for authorities to process.
I don’t recall why I had picked up the first novel when it came out, but I’ve enjoyed reading about Rachel getting in over her head and somehow surfacing in the end.
This installment promises to continue Rachel’s search for her boyfriend’s murderer while she deals with the crafty demon Al while introducing a new player in the game of screwing up her life.
