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.

    Story
    "I am giving up. I used to love the series, no more"
    What would have made Ever After better?

    Ever After would have been better if it had stop being so formulaic. As has been happening over and over and over for the last several books, Rachel (the main character) is forced into a situation she doesn’t want to be in; everyone tells her that she can’t do it whatever it is she has to do and that she is stupid for this or that reason, she argues (REPEATEDLY) with everyone that she HAS to do whatever it is she has to do, then there is an awkward side story that makes little sense with Ivy, (roommate, ex-lover, and sometimes partner). Eventually she goes out and does what she said she had to do, while everyone told her she couldn't do it and things are right in the world until the next book comes out . . . . .and she is again forced into situations she doesn't want to be in, told she cannot do what she says she needs to do, and argues that she has no other choice.

    I have gotten to the point that I listen with frustration in the desperate hope that THIS BOOK will be different, that THIS BOOK will revive the series that I was originally drawn to. I’ve listened in frustration to the last four of five books with this empty hope that the formula will change, partially because I loved the series in the beginning and partly because I have literary OCD and it bothers me to fail to finish a series when I start it.

    But this book was the last coffin nail. The endless arguing and complaining and second guessing feels like filler. The books would be half as long if you were to cut out all the, ". . . .You can't do it RACHEL!!! YES I CAN, I DON'T HAVE A CHOICE!!!"

    I can't listen to this series anymore, because my dentist says I have to stop grinding my teeth and the last 4 or 5 books in this series is the main cause of my dental issues.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Kim Harrison again?

    Possibly, if it were a new series and she didn't slip into this repetitive formula


    Which scene was your favorite?

    In this book? Nothing pops to mind. It is a blur of b----ing. Possibly the seeming growing romantic relationship between Rachel and Trent, but then his fiancee comes back and adds to the B----iness.


    What character would you cut from Ever After?

    The ridiculous struggles Ivy has to deal with is so annoying that I would almost say her. If not "Annoying Ivy" then Trent's fiance.


    Any additional comments?

    Two things:1) Marguerite Gavin is an INCREDIBLE narrator. She is absolutely one of the best!! If I had the option in this review, I would give her 10 stars.

    2) The last book I think I can remember enjoying in this series is "For a Few Demons More." That was the beginning of when the "formula" started to become a little noticeable, but it was still ok. There were bits and pieces of Outlaw, White Witch, Black Magic, and Pale Demon that I liked, but the formula started to become more apparent, then annoying, then frustrating. Ever After just caused me to reach the point where I gave up. It will be easier to deal with the OCD of not finishing the series, than it will be to endure another frustrating book in this series that started so promising.

    My sincere apologies to Kim Harrison, I enjoyed her earlier work. I just can't do these anymore.

    "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?

    Story
    "Rachel Morgan Finally Comes into Her Own"
    What made the experience of listening to Ever After the most enjoyable?

    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!


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


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

    Voice shows moods and intonation that it's just impossible to get from reading the words. Great interpretation by Marguerite here.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Actually tried to but hadda sleep sometime!


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "On The Edge of My Seat and Panting, 5 Star Listen!"

    OMG, I can't believe this book was so good. I was on On The Edge of My Seat. Panting and totally captivated. This is definitely a 5 Star Listen! I have been waiting a long time for Rachel and Trent to come together. Rachel is powerful and together Rachel, Trent, and yes Al; well let’s say there is no stopping them. Finally a lot of the questions were answered about the origins of the Elf’s and the demons. The only negative thing I can say is that the next book is not ready for download. I can’t wait, I want more. Kim Harrison’s Ever After is outstanding. The Narration, by Marguerite Gavin brings this story to life. No one could have done it better.

    "**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.

    "Harrison continues to make this series fresh!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Ever After to be better than the print version?

    I read Ever After and am currently listening to the audio version. I like both. Having Marguerete Gavin narrate brings all the characters to life. I think I hear her voice in my head when I was reading the story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ever After?

    Trent and Rachel finally stop talking passed each other and really listen to what the other person has to say. This is totally important given how much they end up having to depend on one another and stop pushing each other's buttons to come up with an aligned plan.


    Have you listened to any of Marguerite Gavin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I think Marguerite Gavin has narrated all of the Hollows Series save one, which they really should redo with Marguerite Gavin's narration. Her performance for the series has been incredible, this narration is no exception to what she has done in the past. She is distinct with each character. Great cadence in her narration.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I really would have loved to listed to this book in one sitting but it's a long book (thank goodness). I run while listening and my runs have never gone quicker, not that my running is any faster but listening to this latest Hollows book makes the run seem to go much faster!


    Any additional comments?

    Rachel is coming into her own in this new book, she clearly has matured and has a better sense of who she is and much more confidence than when the series began. I'm already looking forward to the next book. I read that Kim Harrison intends for the series to be complete at book 13, not sure if that's accurate. She continues to make each book fresh and exciting.

    "Brilliant!"

    This is an excellent addition to one of my favorite Urban Fantasy series. Kim Harrison writes a beautiful story richly layered with wonderful characters, action, adventure, love, and heart break.

    All my favorite characters are in this book and we get a peek at an unexpected side of both Trent Calamack and Al. Make sure to listen or read these books in order for the full experience. Marguerite Gavin does a terrific job with her narration. This is my second favorite in the series second only to Pale Demon.

    "I want more....."


    I LOVE where this story went.

    Everyone had to get a little understanding of each other to get past age old hate, to save them all. The world changes for them all anyway. The end of this book opens up a whole new world of options, possibilities and dangers for Rachel and Trent.I hope the Kim Harrison goes there even if it takes Rachel into a different series. It will be sad to leave old friends behind but that makes room for the new. Growth always come at a cost.
