Hi Kim, Hi Everyone...
Having just caught up with the fact that this board is running (I'm always late to parties...) I have an interesting question which has been brewing in my mind for some time now... If anyone can enlighten me as to whether I am indeed crazy or somewhere towards the right lines with my thinking I will be grateful...
I am just reading Few Demons More now so I apologise if this is covered later in the story.
OK Here goes
It seems that as we have gone through the Hollows series Rachel has gradually acquired "links and ties" to all of the major species. So much so that I am now beginning to wonder if she really is the pure blood witch that she thinks she is?
We know that witches can not cross with humans but what about Demons? And mores specifically what about Demons who had chosen to permanently morph themselves with Al's famous morphing curse? In the books we are told that the curse works at DNA level but I'm guessing that there would still be "differences" in the offspring which might explain why Rachel is the way she is...

1 she can do demon magic
2 she’s an anomaly/ not even supposed to live with this weird blood type(is this why her kind isn't supposed to live?)
3 ceri wants her to stop all ley line magic
4 her father had wanted her to stop as well- went to great lengths to keep her away from it
5 she’s getting very involved and like them- has a summoning name/deals with their magic/ethics are getting very grey/can make the bells ring in the everafter/can hold more leyline than anyone thought possible/def has more magic capabilities in her than she knows and maybe more than anyone else even suspects
6 she took Tom’s circle which I’m not even sure Al can do
What do u think? Is there anything else u can think of?

I kind of represent a school of thought which says that Demons have had a pretty bad press up to now... bit like Vamps in some stories
So my thoughts are that there is nothing wrong with this line of development. Its time for us to have a good Demon. I mean in the Hollows they are just another species so they can't ALL be bad. (Actually I have to admit to having a kind of warped affection for Big Al :0 Yes - I know I'm one CRAZY mixed up girly... )
I just hope that Kim has the courage as a writer to "take the path less travelled" and give us a truely unlikely heroine!
