Ever After: The Hollows, Book 11 | [Kim Harrison]

Ever After: The Hollows, Book 11

The ever after, the demonic realm that parallels our own, is shrinking, and if it disappears, so does all magic. It’s up to witch-turned-daywalking-demon Rachel Morgan to fix the ever-after before the fragile balance between magic users and humans fails. Of course, there’s also the small fact that she caused the ley line to rip in the first place, and her life is forfeit unless she can fix it.

Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Finalist, Paranormal, 2014

The ever after, the demonic realm that parallels our own, is shrinking, and if it disappears, so does all magic. It’s up to witch-turned-daywalking-demon Rachel Morgan to fix the ever-after before the fragile balance between magic users and humans fails.

Of course, there’s also the small fact that she caused the ley line to rip in the first place, and her life is forfeit unless she can fix it. And that the most powerful demon in the ever after - the soul-eater Ku'Sox Sha-Ku'ru - has vowed to destroy Rachel, and has kidnapped her friend and goddaughter as leverage. If Rachel doesn’t give herself up, they will die.

Forced by circumstance, Rachel teams up with elven tycoon Trent Kalamack - a prospect fraught with dangers of the heart as well as betrayal of the soul - to return to the ever after and rescue those she loves.

Both worlds teeter on the brink, one on a possible interspecies war, the other for its very existence, and it’s up to Rachel to keep both from being destroyed.

    "Harrison remains true to her fans!"

    I started reading this series in paperback. Not only does Gavin perfectly nail each character ... Every time.. Harrison also brings us full circle by allowing the reader to spend some much needed time catching up with our old friends. Another exquisite read from the Hollows brought to life by Gavin. Another pleaser is this book costs ONE CREDIT. Thank you; I was starting to resent the two-credit pricing structure. All in all: HOORAY!

    "**WOW** What a ride!"

    Rachel is maturing but stil kicks butt. This is one of my top fav books in this series. I like Ivy but I'm glad this book didn't focus so much on them as the previous books have. I'm going to listen to this one again. And as usual M. Gavin does an amazing job with the voices and her narration.
    Well worth the credit or money to buy.

    "Playing with Demons"

    EVER AFTER is currently my favorite book in The Hollows series. We get a lot of Trent and Al and very little Ivy which was the best part for me. LOL

    With EVER AFTER Rachel has to deal with some issues that happened in PALE DEMON and A PERFECT BLOOD. As far as Pale Demon, Rachel has to work her magic to save the ever after because of the ley line she made while she was over there. And try to find a way to take down Ku’Sox (or as Jenks calls him, Cut Socks). So you have plenty of demon hijinks going on, which is always fun.

    Then you have to moment that Trent and Rachel shared in A PERFECT BLOOD and Rachel is dealing with personal issues as well. Oh boy is there some personal stuff going on with this one. But I can’t talk about it without spoiling but just know it’s good and can only get better (I hope).

    The main focus is saving the ever after and stopping Ku’Sox. Rachel gets help from old friends and new ones. New as in gargoyles, I love these creatures. Kim Harrison is a great writer that I have a clear picture in my head what all of her characters look like and I want a gargoyles on my roof.

    Harrison is slowly weaving what will end up being a great ending to the series I can just feel it. She makes sure to keep past issues clear and present with each book. We are slowly getting more answers to old questions while she hooks us with new problems. The issue with the Rosewood Syndrome is back in full force when a group of babies go missing. Another thing I love about Harrison is that she’s not afraid to let characters die. I just wish the next character to go would be Ivy. I’ve not liked her from the beginning and just when I thought we would get an Ivy free book she pops up for a couple of chapters. The Hollows is the only series where I don’t like the vampire race. I hate their politics and their very way of life.

    I love that Rachel Morgan is a character that has grown during the series. She’s had some really TSTL moments in earlier books but she’s realizing that she has made of some the same mistakes over and over in the past and is working to correct that behavior.

    Marguerite Gavin continues to rock this series! She will forever be Rachel Morgan to me. I’m off to listen to THE UNDEAD POOL.

    I love to read, but I am time-limited. Audible allows me to keep up with all my favorite authors while on the hiking trail. Thanks, Audible!

    "Trent"
    Any additional comments?

    Honestly, can anyone get enough Trent? The answer is no. Thank goodness Kim Harrison agrees. Kim Harrison's tomato-fearful world is back in gloriously full description which enables the reader/listen to really empathize with Rachel Mariana Morgan. Great job to writer and narrator.

    Story
    "I give up"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. After 11 books, the main character still spends half of her time yelling "It's not fair!". At the end of every book, she shows signs of growing up and having character growth but by the time the next book starts, she's back to almost the same place she was at during the first book. Between the two things, and the by now predictable story line, I just can't even finish this one. What I got through was better than the last book, but it's just not going anywhere.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Kim Harrison again?

    I would not read another Hollow's book. It's the same plot over and over and over again with little or no character growth and a main character that basically forgets any character growth she had in whatever book came previous.


    What does Marguerite Gavin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She's a good reader and I enjoy her.


    Was Ever After worth the listening time?

    No

    A middle-aged romantic who grew up reading Heinlen, Louis L'Amour and Richard Hooker. Expect and honest opinion, even if it's not PC.

    "Rachel deserves better Ms. Harrison!"

    I love this series, but am fed up with the inconsistency of the leading character. In one chapter she's a sobbing wimp , and in the next she's a kick-a** super woman. First she can't do anything to chage her situation or save her world, then she suddeny begins to make things happen with no explanation as to what changed to allow this.
    Being a Kim Harrison fan is like being in a bad relationship; you just have to finally realize that the other person isn't going to change and say "enough is enough!"

    "Decent kook, but I'm done"

    Marguerite Gavin is fantastic as a reader, but this is a good stopping place for me. I've listened to or read the entire series up to this point. While I've enjoyed it, I'm finished with The Hollows after this one, and here's why: Rachel makes the same mistakes she makes in all the other books, and the series has become formulaic.

    She knows martial arts but gets into hair pulling fights that don't use her skills; she falls for bad men, berates herself for it, and does it anyway; she doubts her magical abilities even though she's bested... well, the best. She insults quickly and takes offense at perceived slights quickly, and she refuses to think before doing or saying anything. She acts much like an insecure teenager, not like an adult, although I suppose I've met adults who act like teenagers, so maybe that's a moot point. I could tolerate her personality for a while, but it's become exhausting. I don't want to want to smack the main character of a book every other chapter.

    The writing itself has become tiresome for me as well. "Crap on toast", "tink's _____", and "if you don't _______ I'll ______" with nothing to back up the threat are just as common here as all the other books. The book starts and ends with a fight, like all the other books. Rachel is left on her own, nearly dies, and finds "strength in her friends" at the end, just like all the other books. She solves some problems and makes some new ones, leaving the series open for sequels... it's never-ending.

    It's been a good ride overall though!

    "A good one, not a great one"

    This was another winner in the Hollows series. The narrator was great as always, the story line was good. I really liked the development of the relationship between Racheal and Trent. It just seemed to take a very long time to get everything done this time. This book could have been a couple chapters shorter and been no worse for it. But it was still a really good part of the Hollows series.

    "An enjoyable listen for Rachel Morgan fans."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Ever After to be better than the print version?

    No idea - I'm an audiobook fan.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm a big fan of the author (hipster alert - I bought her first book the day it came out on shelves, so I can say with all honesty that I liked her before she was famous) but honestly, it's getting a little bit tiresome reading about a woman who seems so conflicted about every single relationship in her life.

    "Rachel and Trenton"

    I love this book. This one by far is the best yet. I'm glad Trent opened up on shared his feelings for Rachel. Can't wait to see where it goes?
