I love this series!! I love the writting, I love the characters, I love the reader. When I read the series I don't want to turn my car off I want to hear what happens. Kim Harrison sucks you in you just want MORE! Great read, can't wait for more
Well paced and excellent story. I love the world Kim Harrison has created and the character growth throughout the series. Marguerite Gavin is excellent as always. I can't wait for the next book.
I literally could not stop listening to this book. I listened to it in the car, on breaks at work, over lunch and even while folding laundry! Harrison ties up some loose ends with Rachel and Trent, and manages to open up wonderful new possibilities with almost all of the characters.
I love this series and about 1/2 way through started listening instead of reading them and it enriched an already great series. In Gavin, Harrison has found the melody to her groovy beat.
Trust me-you want to hear Al say "Rachel Mariana Morgan."
"I really enjoyed this book. Kim is a great writer.
Plenty of adventure hated to get to end of the story. This book a must listen".

I looked forward to this book so much that in order to prolong the pleasure I reread the previous book before starting it. Unfortunately it was a disappointment. The only reason this book "went anywhere" was because they were on a road trip and went from Cinci to the West Coast. I read about the idea that MS Harrison had for the road trip theme but it was weak at best. The action seemed sort of random like she had to find something for someone to do at intervals along the way. I did enjoy the softening of Al but Pierce was a total stick in this one - going from a hottie to an incidental character with little chemistry between him and Rachel. And then there is the "new" Trent - who seems a bit nicer and apparently also in love with Rachel. She's a lucky gal - everyone (Al, Pierce, Trent, and Ivy) seems to be in love with her but they all wind up disappointing her in one way or the other. You would think after this many books there would be SOMEONE she could count on who won't kill, use, eat her? And her "poor me I'm a victim" attitude is REALLY starting to get OLD!
Let her glory in what she is - live half in both dimensions and kick butt in both - it's about freakin' time!
I'm in love Al now.. hate Trent even more than I did and I just wish Pierce would die or disappear to never return.
It's good listen, but there were moments where things lagged longer than they should and lulled me to sleep. There also moments like with Rachel and Ivy in hotel that made me cry a little, it soooo endearing and I couldn't get enough of Rachel in the Ever after. Just for those chapters alone I would've paid more. Don't pass up, even with the stupid credit hike it a must listen, read whatever...
I am a guy that has become addicted to Audible books, both free and bought. I own many books now both fiction and non-fiction I loved the Rachel Morgan book before this one- Black Magic Sanction. It was witty and had great characters. This one lost me early on and I never recovered. Perhaps Ms. Harrison is not being edited properly. In a scene at an airport early in the book, There are seven comments that Rachel will not get on the plane. One would have been sufficient. It is as if the living characters of the previous book became cartoons, acting out their pre-assigned shticks, like Daffy or Bugs, and are not in a living story. I just did not like it or buy it and would recommend that this will be skipped. I will try some of the others and see if they are better
Two credits? Really? I really wish it had been a bit more affordable since there are so many books in this series already! Now that my frugal side has been appeased i can get onto the story. So much happened in this book! We get to see a lot more of Trent in this book and a more casual side of his character. Rachel is stronger than ever and enemies come out of the woodwork to ensure this book is an exciting ride. I recommend this book. It is essential to the series, but it can stand on it's own.
I'm on my 315th audiobook since 2007. I only discovered Audible in 2010 and I find it's a great way to manage my audiobook budget.
A road trip with an elf, a witch, a vampire and a fairy?????? Awesome! Loved the development of Trent's character and Jinks coming out of his shell. Hoped Rachel would make him big again, I'm still hoping.
