When I read the first books of this series I had mixed emotions about how well I was going to like it. However, having now read each and every book and short story associated with it, it has become a must-read in my ever growing library! I love Rachel, Jenks, his kids and the ever growing circle of friends and enemies. Marguerite Gavin is a great narrator who makes the stories come alive.
Rachel is accepting being a witch/demon. As always she is fighting against the odds. This book has Rachel and Trent and Al working to save the Ever After. Much more of the Gargoils in this story - get to learn some of Biz's background and family.
Rachel keeps going after men she can't have or who aren't good for her. Wish she'd accept that she has feelings for her roommate and relax. That would make a great next story.
The reader does an excellent job of rendering each of the characters in this book, keeping the "suspension of disbelief" in effect without interruption from misqueued character voices. Listening to the book was exciting and as gripping as if I'd had the book in my hands, reading for dear life!
Kim H. has brought Rachel Morgan's story a very long way since the beginning of the series and in this book, it's a great satisfaction to see her growth and that of the characters she deals with. Kudos to Kim on this.
Voice shows moods and intonation that it's just impossible to get from reading the words. Great interpretation by Marguerite here.
Actually tried to but hadda sleep sometime!
Only that I heartily recommend this installation in the Rachel Morgan series. Those of you who have followed from the beginning will really enjoy this one.
The World According to JimG944
I rate the book Ever After by Kim Harrison 5 of 5 stars. This is book #11 of the Hollows Series and I suggest this is the best book of the 11. A very solid story that well leverages the world created in the previous 10 books (yes, I have read all 10 in order). Of course, to properly enjoy this complex story you should read the previous books. If you are a Rachel Morgan fan (The Hollows), this is a must read.
I was entertained while listening.
not my world to change. The author's world and story.
sure, i'd buy another.
This series is another good one if you haven't listened to it yet. I love the narrator of it also. I wish Trent and Rachel would just get on with it already. You know they are going to hook up at some point. Rachel so deserves it after Kisten...
Say something about yourself!
I love this series! >>
I have really started to like Trent and Rachel together, the loss of Ceri really pisses me off though. And yet she kept Elspeth...Ah whatever, it all makes a really good book. I don't want this series to end although I know it has to at some point. Maybe this is it?
Enjoyable, Just getting better all the time
Mercy Thompson Series, Sookie Stackhouse. Strong characters that don't always have solutions to the current problem they are facing.
any of the action sequences
I hope the series continues, but I could very well see this one as an end. Really enjoyed this audiobook. Well worth it.
You won't be disappointed! I have always enjoyed The Hollows, and Ever After was not a disappointment. I enjoy the battles, the tiffs and the strong friendships. If you love Ivy, Jenks, Rachel & Trent, you will enjoy Ever After!

Kim did a great job on this one.
I do not like all the books in the series. I did not like the story in the prior book in this series Perfect Blood. This one makes up for it. Except for Perfect Blood I have listened to the series (and this book) at least twice.
The narrator Marguerite Gavin has mastered the characters in this series...
There is one other audio book in this series that has issues "The Outlaw Demon Wails" The story is fine but the narrator Gigi Bermingham messes-up big time. Thankfully Ms. Gavin narrates the rest of the series.
