Kim Harrison's Hollows series is by far my favorite urban fantasy series. I've listened to them all at least twice, and read several in book form as well.
While Ever After was not my favorite in the series (that honor goes to Pale Demon), it came in a close second. The first half of the book is good, and the second half is amazing. The last chapter in particular was excellent. When I finished, I simply went back to chapter 1 and started listening again (need to catch the details I missed the first time...:)
Marguerite Gavin was an amazing narrator, as always.
It had humor and drama, really balanced out each other, one part had me laughing outloud for several minutes!!
so, about halfway through this listen my friends asked how it was thus far, and i told them that it was a bit more of the same as A Perfect Blood, but a really solid story and i was enjoying it. and then THE LAST THIRD began! holy-moly,
what. a. ride.
Trent and Al and Quen and Ku'Sox and Bis and good grief, just so much happened!
buy it, enjoy it. i'm dying for the next one already.
One of the best series ever, and one that I always look forward to. I love that Rachel has grown up, and it was nice to have less Ivy in this book. Marguerite Gavin's narration was great, as usual. However, I am about halfway through the book, and the over-use of phrases such as "I went cold", "His brow furrowed", etc. is driving me nuts. The constant use of "His best Peter Pan pose" and "Bunny-eared kiss kiss" used to just grate on my nerves. We are 11 books into the series. Just saying it may be time for some new lines.
I love all the characters and they are brought to life on this recording.
Learning more about the demons.
She's very good at the voices.
I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!
I liked it all, but really loved the ending, Al was funny...Trent was sweet...and always Rachel was Rachel....
There were many, this book was more sad, than the others at least in my opinion, and when Ceri died...it really hurt my heart...I loved her...
I really liked when Newt showed up to kill Rachel...it was funny...but the ending was my fave...I also loved what they did the girl from the museum....lol
Yes, I did both...this book was funny, and sad...
In this installment there is not a whole lot of Ivy, which disappointed me a bit, not a lot of Jenks... But Plenty of Trent, and a good bit of Al... Rachel has grown sooooo much..I am interested to see where this series goes from here...
Gripping, imaginative and satisfying.
Rachel Morgan is always the star in these books. I love the way she never gives up, no matter how bad everything looks. She's never weak, and yet she never sways from her own moral code.
Marguerite Gavin always makes me adore Al, blending perfectly his evil and untrustworthiness with his need to be accepted and wanted. I can both love and hate him as the scene requires.
Rachel's refusal to allow Ivy and Jenks to be spellbound instead of telling them the truth.
I've really enjoyed all the Rachel Morgan books, but I really loved this one. I felt that Rachel really came into her own in this book.
Addicted to Audible.
It honestly took me awhile to get into the series...I am not sure how or why looking back! I absolutely adore this series and Ever After was one of my favorites. I love the character development in The Hollows. If you like Paranormal fiction as I do this series will not disappoint. I do recommend that you listen to the books in order for the best experience.
must read: darynda jones, Karen moning, Ilona Andrews, kim harrison, gena showalter, Karen chance,patricia briggs,jeaniene frost ,L taylor,
the narration is really good and this installment in the series had a lot of good developements with the characters
i really can't get enough of Al and Biz
really liked the final fight towards the end
I think there are some interesting developements with the characters i like where this is going!!! especially with Biz and the babies. i don't want to give anything away but if you like this series you will enjoy this installment.
Just a guy that likes a good story.
Yes. It is a good story with a solid Heroine. This book doesn't go down the path the smut novel motif and keeps to the strong independent powerful woman. Not all guys like a girl that can kick their ass but I for one do.
Algaliarept. The depth of his character keeps expanding.
Ms. Gavin is a marvelous reader! She is able to breath life into the characters and gives each of them a unique quality. I have actually bought other books I did not know just because she is the reader!
When they tore that arrogant putz apart. I was so ready for it.
Great series of books here. I highly recommend the read. My one complaint is that the main character is always getting out of trouble with more luck than skill and she is suppose to be highly skilled. I would really like to see her just tear down the house sometime.
