Worlds collide when Rachel Morgan of The Hollows meets Peri Reed of The Drafter in this exciting new short story from #1 New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison.

The paranormal and the futuristic meet in this thrilling novella featuring your favorite badass heroines from two of “the amazingly gifted” (RT Book Reviews) Kim Harrison’s most beloved series: the Hollows and the Peri Reed Chronicles. The magic of the Hollows runs full force into the technological sophistication of The Drafter when a device capable of carrying a city’s data stream pulls Rachel, the bounty hunter witch of the Hollows, between realities, marooning her in a world where the supernatural holds no sway. To get Rachel and Jenks home, Peri, the dangerous renegade of 2030, must decide what will chart her future: her blind trust in those who grant her power, or her intuition telling her to believe.

When I heard these two awesome heroines were going to share the same reality for a short time I got super excited. 

I love Rachel from The Hollows and Peri Reed from The Drafter and I was ready for a perfect blend of both worlds.  

So how does it work?

Well, I don't want to spoil the fun but let's just say itchy witch Rachel is in trouble and Peri agrees to help her despite this leading to big trouble for Peri if she is found out. 

I do love the way Kim Harrison was able to connect these two very powerful women. They live in completely different worlds.  Rachel in a world full of magic with elves, witches, demons and vampires and Peri in a world where you could go back in time to fix a mistake.

One of the things I liked the most about this short story was that these two women despite being very different and from different worlds were able to get along quite well and even trust each other. They seemed to recognize each others souls. 

On a plus note and in one word : Jenks!!

4/5 Fangs
