Peri can't put her finger on it, but she has that problem with lots of memories. It seems that Jack and she may be corrupt, but Peri is sure she's not a bad agent. The journey to finding herself is long, hard, and full of action. Peri's first rule is she never kills anyone who hasn't killed her first. A great new series is born. Very highly recommended.

The Witch with No Name - Kim Harrison

The Witch with No Name is the 13th and final book in the Hollows series. A series set right across the state line in Cincinnati. If you haven't been keeping up, you should start from the beginning. You won't regret it.
The situation with the elves, the demons, and the vampires is coming to a head. Rachel is doing her best to "fix" things, but it's getting out of hand. This book is suspenseful and exciting and sad all at the same time. Too bad this great series had to end. Very highly recommend.
