After 10 years and 13 adventures, The Witch with No Name (Voyager) is the triumphant conclusion to Kim Harrison's Hollows series. Rachel Morgan has come a long way from her early days as an inexperienced bounty hunter. To save her best friend Ivy's soul and the rest of the living vampires, and to keep the demonic ever-after and our own world from utter destruction at the hands of fanatics, she must risk everything. In The Getaway God (Voyager), the sixth high-octane adventure of Richard Kadrey's bestselling Sandman Slim series, James Stark must save himself — and the entire world — from the wrath of some enraged and vengeful ancient gods.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Witch-turned-daywalking-demon Rachel Morgan needs to save the demonic realm of the Ever After in the eleventh entry in the New York Times bestselling Hollows series from supernatural adventure master Kim Harrison.

When Rachel sets off a chain of events that could lead to the end of the world — demonic and human — she must use her gifts to save those closest to her while preventing an apocalypse.

Satisfying and sexy, a visit to the Hollows will take readers on a wild journey that will capture their imagination. Fans of Charlaine Harris and Stephenie Meyer won't be able to resist Kim Harrison's alternative universe — urban fantasy Cincinnati complete with vampires, witches, and other enchanting creatures — where spine-tingling adventures and fast-paced action are the norm.

Synopsis:

New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison returns to the sexy, supernatural adventures of Rachel Morgan with the eleventh book in the Hollows series

Ever After

The ever-after, the demonic realm that parallels our own, is shrinking, and if it disappears, so does all magic. It's up to witch-turned-daywalking-demon Rachel Morgan to fix the ever-after before the fragile balance between magic users and humans falls apart.

Of course, there's also the small fact that Rachel is the one who caused the ley line to rip in the first place, and her life is forfeit unless she can fix it. Not to mention the most powerful demon in the ever-after — the soul-eater Ku'Sox Sha-Ku'ru — has vowed to destroy her, and has kidnapped her friend and her goddaughter as leverage. If Rachel doesn't give herself up, they will die.

Forced by circumstance, Rachel teams up with elven tycoon Trent Kalamack — a partnership fraught with dangers of the heart as well as betrayal of the soul — to return to the ever-after and rescue those she loves. One world teeters on the brink of interspecies war, the other on the brink of its very demise — and it's up to Rachel to keep them both from being destroyed.

Disquietus, April 27, 2014 (view all comments by Disquietus)
The Hollows Series is easily one of my top ten favorites. The characters are compelling, the writing is truly excellent, the action is heart-stopping and the romance is just guh. Gorgeous and swoon worthy, giving you all the feels that good romances should give you. But my absolute favorite part about this series is that although classified as a paranormal romance, unlike most others of its genre, the romance doesn’t dominate the books. You’re not reading page after page of graphic sex scenes with a splash of plot thrown in. Rather, The Hollows series gives you all the action and character development you could hope for, with just enough romance thrown in to make you fangirl ever time Trent Kalamack shows up. And to be honest, one kiss between Trent and Rachel is hotter than many of the sex scenes I’ve read in other books. Ever After, the 11th installment of the series, is the best yet.

Of course my favorite part of the book is all of the Trent and Rachel awkwardness and flirtation. I’ve been a Trent/Rachel shipper since book one, despite the fact that he’s sometimes also Rachel’s biggest nemesis. This book was filled with the great romantic tension, and of course denial, that has come to define their interactions in the last few books.

This installment was also filled with some serious action and heavy-duty development of not just the characters, but the demon’s world in the ever after. This book gave some great insight into how the demon’s interact with each other, as well as their past and Rachel’s slow acceptance of her place among them. The book was filled with Al and Newt scenes, which brought their own special brand of hilarity. They might be the best characters in the series. I loved seeing just how far all the characters have evolved from the first book, whether it was Trent and Rachel working together, rather than against, or Rachel and Quen’s almost familial interactions with each other, not to mention Jenks living with a fairy. It’s fun seeing all these characters who have worked against each other for so long becoming family to each other, even if they don’t realize it themselves. I also enjoyed the lack of Ivy in this book. An unpopular opinion, I know, but she’s always been my least favorite character and her absence did not bother me one little bit.

Things I didn’t like about the book: The return of Ellasbeth. Mostly because I know Trent is going to choose his duty to his people and marry her rather than choosing his own happiness and being with Rachel. Even outside of that Ellasbeth is just a really bad person. Also was not amused by two characters coming to their demise off-scene. I felt the readers definitely deserved better than that after growing attached to these characters over multiple books. Also, I really don’t understand why Nick isn’t dead yet? HOW DOES HE KEEP SURVIVING? It is a mystery, but hopefully he’ll die before the end of the series. I can’t believe there is only two books left.

Epic! Completely amazing. The Hollows keeps getting better and better. Rachel is forced to accept some major changes and truths in her life. The entire book was like riding a roller coaster with highs and lows. There is loss but despite the grief, there is also strength and perseverance. I loved how all of Rachel's various relationships progressed and changed in various ways. I also really liked how Bis and the other gargoyles got a larger role to play in this book. I hope that we will get to learn more about them and their ties to the demons in the next one. Jenks is also growing and accepting life more and more after losing his wife. I thoroughly enjoyed how he and Belle (wingless-fairy, and former arch enemy of all pixys) have learned to co-exist with each other. Overall the entire story rocked and I can't wait for the next one!

This is definitely a series you do not want to miss if you like urban fantasy. It is so unique and gripping that you will not want to put it down. I have read all the books in this series more than once and have never gotten bored.
