Rarely does a fantasy novelist create such colorful, interesting, and enjoyable characters. Even more rarely does one craft such an intricate, believable and rule-bound world as this. Kim Harrison sets herself appart by doing both and making it look easy.
I've loved this series since the beginning and have a fondness for it that simply will not die. Kim listens to her fans and she doesn't dangle things out of reach. Consequently, Ever After brings everything to the table that a Hollow's fan craves, while still following the hearts of the characters it contains.
You will not be disappointed.
Trent was more in this story and Rachel finally begins to understand that she is important. Her abilities isn't something to be ashamed of. She is a demon and she needs to embrace that
It showed how much Rachel and Trent have evolved since Dead Witch Walking
I love Marguerite Gavin reading these stories. She really brings the characters to life
I've listened to hundres so I'll that it falls in the middle. Not horrible but not great. The reader was good, but the story just didn't meet the epic promise of the eighteenth book.
The most interestng aspect was learning about the history of the elves and demons and learning a little about what demons were like before the war with the elves. The least intersting was the drama with nick and ivy. Honestly the side characters like jinks have gotten to be more interesting than Rachels stupid love life.
She does a good clear active performance.
Seeing Al in his former self before the war.
I like mostly fantasy - Robert Jordan, Charlaine Harris, Jim Butcher, Patricia Briggs, etc.
Another good book in this series. This book picks up where the last ended with Rachel being chased by a demon that eats souls. Rachel teams up with the Elven leader to chase the demon across realities. Good action coupled with a good story with twists. If you want a fun, entertaining story then this is it. I found myself wanting to know what Rachel was going to do next & not expecting what came. Each book in this series gets better. If you enjoy Patricia Briggs or Charlaine Harris then you will probably enjoy this author.
I am addicted to audible. I read the first few books of this series and when I discovered audible I down loaded several of them... The reader takes you away and into the story... I will listen to these stories over and over...
A Great Reader.....
I'll be waiting for the next one to come out.....
Love to read!
There are several series I have read that by the time the author gets to book #11, they start to get boring and repetitive. That is not the case for Harrison's Ever After. She has managed to keep the story line going strong and keeps you on the edge of your seat.
The story focuses on Rachel and Trent mostly, with quite a bit of Al in there. Ivy is really side-lined in this one, but it sets up possible future drama with her and the vampire community.
Great book! Looking forward to the next one!
Absolutely! The vocal characterizations helped give the story depth.
The hunt for Ku Sachs
This one is much better than the Kitty... stories.
It made me sigh with relief. If I have to hear one more angst-ridden main character, I'll scream. I think it's because I'm getting older.
Best book of the entire series. And I should know: I've read them all.
I would say that it is one of the better audio books i have listen to but then again i am a fan of all the hollows books!
the ending! it has finally happened!LOL
the only complaint that I would have it that she does sound a little old, but in all she does do a great job!
it was another great book!
I cant wait for the next book! keep them coming!!!!
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!!
