Publisher's Summary

Number-one New York Times best-selling author Kim Harrison returns to the supernatural adventures of Rachel Morgan in the penultimate book of the Hollows series.

Witch and day-walking demon Rachel Morgan knows magic - earth, ley line, even the forbidden demon magic - and that knowledge has saved her life more than once. But now something - or someone - is attacking Cincinnati and the Hollows, causing spells to backfire or go horribly wrong while living vampires attack humans and Inderlanders alike.

The pressures build when the city is quarantined to contain the unreliable magic, and Rachel must stop the attacks before the undead vampire masters who keep the rest of the undead under control are lost and it becomes all-out supernatural war.

The only way to do so is through the ancient elven magic, but that carries its own perils - for magic always has a price, and gods do not come lightly when called.

    "A Perfect Tale - Al Gets What He Deserves!"

    What a great story! Trent and Rachel work very well together now, and there are the usual interferences from Trent's "ex". Newt is very much front and center in this tale, adding adventure and a lot of story backfill that makes the book a rich read. Have a listen to this one for a great escape!

    "Long Time Fan and Still in Love!"

    This has consistently been one of my favorite series, and 12 books in Rachel, Jenks, Al and the gang feel a bit like old friends. I get a bit annoyed with the descriptions of each mood, such as all the brow furrowing and teeth clenching, but at the same time I like that the books feel as if they flow together smoothly. Ivy's character has lost relevance, and hopefully her story will either wrap up or ramp up if there is another book. I love that the inevitable finally happened with Rachel and Trent. Long overdue!

    "Save the best for last?"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Undead Pool to be better than the print version?

    I don't know, I have not read the print edition.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the way Rachel 's friends always rally around her. They love her and they are really family even though they are different species.


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

    I have and they are all good. Marguerite Gavin knows how to perform and bring a book to life.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Rachel and the Mystics


    Any additional comments?

    I don't know if this is Rachel and Kim Harrison's last book, but if it is it ended with a bang. I hope it is not the last of Rachel, Jenks, Trent and Ivy. They have been a part of my life for so long. I'm not sure what it will be like without them.

    Listen mostly to urban fantasy and suspense/thrillers but also enjoy mysteries, sci-fi, fantasy, romance, adventure, classic, modern, spiritual or general literature. And I always like a bit of romance in any of my stories.

    "Better all the time"

    Each book I think can't get any better and yet the next one proves me wrong. This one is no exception. If you've been listening to the series you'll be pleased with this installment. If you haven't started the series yet you owe it to yourself to get "Dead Witch Walking" and start listening now. Marguerite Gavin is an amazing performer. I love all of her work but especially the Rachel Morgan books. It is with both great expectation and much sadness that I await the final installment.

    "Whew!"

    Rachel is a heroine we all love because she is just so bad at it! In a good way, of course. She spends an inordinate amount of time saying "I'm sorry", but in the end, she gets the job done.

    Without delivering any spoilers, I was very relieved when I finally got to the end of the book. I would have been very sad if it had ended any other way.

    "Wow - Kim Harrison does it again!"

    Another wild installment in Rachel Morgan's adventures - and her adventures just get more unbelievable. I don't want to give away too much of the plot, but once you accept a world where witches and demons travel back and forth from the underworld, and elves are involved with genetic manipulation and ketchup is considered dangerous, then little things like a goddess who loses pieces of herself, or catching a train at fifty miles an hour with the help of gargoyles seem almost logical. The characters are wonderful, even if I do miss bad guy Trent. Biz is coming into his own. And by Tink's pink *****, Jinks the pixie is one of my favorite characters ever!

    I love Audible for their variety and number of options of books available. I can enjoy books, take care of my grandchildren and drive too.

    "I will never complain about Kim Harrison's books"

    I don't like to regurgitate the plot, I'll just say I have all the Hollows books from the beginning and Kim's is a great plot master. The only thing I hate is waiting for the next book, (oh my gosh #13), and as all good things, someday it has to end. But whenever that day comes, I will be sad. Please if you are new to the series do yourself a favor and start at the beginning. There are so many characters that came before who are referred to and you need to know what the background was. You will not be sorry.

    "At Last"
    Would you listen to The Undead Pool again? Why?

    I absolutely will listen to it again, it's that good.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Trent, choosing to be true to himself instead of his species.


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

    MG was a great narrator as always.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did cry a little at the end, because I love Al, even if I never really considered him as a romantic partner for Rachel. His heartbreak was very moving.


    Any additional comments?

    I cant wait for the final installment. After that I will read/listen to the entire series all over again.

    Story
    "Everyone coming full circle"

    Great book, 16 hours long and I listened to it in two days, that's how good it was. If you are following this series, you won't miss this installment and won't be disappointed. It brings together many of the characters we haven't seen in awhile, such as David and the pack, along with reminders from previous books, not forgetting Tristen and Ceri. The vampires play a heavy role in this one, with Ivy having a larger role. Jinks is at the top of his game, keeping us in stitches with his blunt outbursts of life as he sees it. Al seems to be the heartbreaker of the book, as we see where his torment lies (demon or not, I felt sorry for him) Things seem to be coming to an end as some of the lives of our friends get settled one way or another. The story mainly folds around Rachel and Trent though with yet another adventure to save the world, as they both struggle with personal emotions for each other.
