The Bespelled (The Hollows #6.5) - Kim Harrison Short and sexy. Yeah, Al, the bastard, is sexy! But he is not short. Actually I don't remember any details of his height :).In this short story we learn how Ceri actually ended up as Al’s familiar. Al is naughty demonic and Ceri is not much of an angel herself. Kids, don't play with demons or you will get burned!
