Fans of the series will find a lot of payoff in this book. Rachel finally matures enough that she learns to be open with her colleagues, to be honest with her men, and to take risks and trust people when her gut tells her to. Ivy is moving on, Jenks is not incapacitated by hearbreak, and Trent is no longer such an enigma. Series readers get a lot of insight into the history and relationships between demons and elves - and gargoyles. The plot seems to be wrapping itself up... is the series almost over? I'm not sure I'd appreciate the book as much if I hadn't been following the series since the beginning. It's definitely not a stand-alone tale.
Yes, currently listening to the series in order to get the feel of the collection together
Why? B/c it was an awesome adventure and not the typical trio of the Hollows. I got to know Quen, Al, Newt and Trent etc more (which I was really really excited about)
It is a melodious adventure, refreshing but still very familiar
There are many but I think the 2 that stuck out the most w/o giving too much away for the "future reader" is When Rachel was in another one of Al's dreams while he was searching for his inner self &When Ellasbeth was put in her place by Quen after Rachel "talked" to her,
Yes all I would have to say is Chapter 16 and Chapter 27 made me so flustered, mad at Nick, being who he is and trying to play stupid when the results actually happened. Coward!! If you hated Nick before you'll plot your own version of his end in this book lol!
It is a must listen. All of the Hollows books are awesome, this one is very unique and I absolutely love it! Currently waiting on a few friends to finish their copy so I can talk about it!!
High marks for the genre. One of the best of the series.
AL - Rachel - Trent getting together!
Series would not be the great listen without Marguerite.
Yes and Yes and just in case you're not sure YES! This was a long awaited book for me, I was so excited i literally had Audible up waiting for the release counting down from 5 hours.Fabulous listen, never a dull moment, exceeding it's predecessor and that takes an amazing imagination.
The rest of the Hollow's, Kim Harrison has a very unique way of writing. I'm a very big listener and reader of fiction and I just haven't listened/read anything close.
Wonderful as always, voices are spot on and continuity is excellent.
Yes! but I'm not telling you where.
There seems to be a little issue with production, I noted that in order to listen comfortably I have to turn on the treble reducer on my iPod. It's sort of like the radio's not quite tuned. But to a fan, that's minor.Thank you very much Ms Harrison, I re-listen to The Hollows a lot as they give me such pleasure.
the "Ever After" is one of the best and most comprehensive and refreshing book of the Hollows series written by kim. Many things long talked about and speculated over were brought to light; showing the true power and emotional fortitude of Rachel when it came to making tough decisions that could either demonize her or humanize what she thought about herself. this was one of the book I eagerly anticipated for 2013 and it didn't disappoint,seeing the true faces of both demons and elves and the long war the raged for eons.
who started the war????
how was the lay lines created???
the strength and power of the wild magic... etc
All I can say is YES lol .Kim Harrison puts out another non stop action plot with occasional catch your breath pauses.The moment I 've been waiting for Trent and Racheal recognizing there attraction...sparks are igniting in this book, Can't wait for the next book..a whole year away :(
She sounded very similar to Wendie Malick (except more dramatic). The fluctuations in her voice were irritating and extremely distracting. The voices she gave to the characters were disappointing. I expected more from someone who has narrated so many other books.
The story was disconnected and rambling. It would go chapters about seemingly unimportant subjects. When it did come back to the original story line, it was confusing and vague. The characters talked over each other and it became irritating and confusing. I felt this was one instance were the written book might have been more enjoyable. The voices of the different characters were distracting, and seemed to be at odds with each other.
I have followed these books from the beginning and I really enjoyed how this book was going. I would love to see romance interest go some where but I also love how all the people in the story are growing and changing. I laughed, and cried with this book and I look forward to see what Kim Harrison comes up with next for Rachel, Jinx, Ivy, And Trent.
This is a wonderful story reader. I love any book that Marguerite Gavin does. She brings the people in the stories to life.
Growth of a Demon.
I do hope others enjoy it as much as I did.
First of all I didn't realize this was book 11 in a series (my bad) so I got the first one from the library and found that I didn't like the story at all. So over the top unbelievable and the story just jumped around. I tried but just couldn't like any of the characters. I really wanted to like the first one so I could get my monies worth but I basically wasted $20+ dollars on something I can't stand. It looks like many do considering this is the 11th in a series. Yuck.
All of it...
She is fine. Not memorable in any way. Gets the job done. I wouldn't seek out her work but wouldn't turn it away either.
