The Undead Pool: The Hollows, Book 12 | [Kim Harrison]

The Undead Pool: The Hollows, Book 12

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.

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.

    I enjoy mysteries, wrapped with violence and sprinkled with romance.

    "Unique story with UNEXPECTED TWISTS"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Undead Pool to be better than the print version?

    Absolutely!! I normally read a book first then order the audio only if the story is good enough for me to enjoy the story again. However I stopped doing that with the Hollows Books starting with 9 since Harrison proved to consistently deliver a good story and Marguerite Gavin brings to life the characters that I love.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The shift in Rachel and Trent's relationship and the changes in Trent's character.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The fight scene between Rachel and Al. I won't say more not wanting to spoil the fun for you.

    "Another Good One"

    I enjoyed this book. I have enjoyed every book in the series. Usually by book 12, I have gotten tired of the story lines. Not so with this series, I love the alternate earth and world that Kim Harrison has created. This one is maybe not as strong as some of her other books but I still have a vested interest in the characters and their lives.

    "LOVED IT!!"

    This is my favorite book so far in this series. You can tell that it is nearing the end and things appear to be falling into place. Rachel is wiser and she got a happy ending I this book which I hope continues in the finale.

    "Why does it have to be over!!"
    If you could sum up The Undead Pool in three words, what would they be?

    Demons, witches, and an elf


    What did you like best about this story?

    Rachel never fails at being a good protagonist with an attitude problem, who is slightly oppositional defiant. Kim Harrison created a well written group of characters that you come to know as family. Rachel finally gains acceptance in the strangest places.


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

    Marguerite Gavin is an excellent narrator. She has a great way of making the character's voices completely different from one another. I almost stopped listening to the series when the narrators where changed, but I plugged through it.


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

    I just wish they'd make the film.. : )


    Any additional comments?

    This series was excellent, from the in-depth back story of the tomato virus, to the history of each race representative in the book. I have a difficult time with the run of the mill fantasy, and tend to skip the D&D writers. However, Kim Harrison has provided a story that is both fantastical and appealing to all readers. I highly suggest this book.

    "Thank you Kim Harrison!"
    Would you listen to The Undead Pool again? Why?

    I LOVE this series. I wait for the books to come out and usually preorder them... I do listen to the series about twice a year, after it's not so fresh in my mind....


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love all of the characters. But I think if I HAD to choose one, it would be Jinx...he's so funny and M. Gavin reads the parts with perfection.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I don't want to give away anything to anyone who hasn't read it yet, but I was biting my nails waiting for Rachel and Trent to finally hook up...lol


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

    I laughed during some parts...


    Any additional comments?

    It's a great book, they all are. I'm VERY SAD about there only being one book left after this one... I really wish Kim Harrison would keep the Hollows alive....this is one of the only series that I look forward to. I love the Anita Blake Series by Laurell K. Hamilton, the Otherworld Series by Kelley Armstrong (which is over now...sad but true), The Sookie Stackhouse Series by Charlaine Harris (also over), anything by Cassandra Clare, Melissa Marr and Christopher Moore, the Love Story being my favorite by Christopher Moore and the House of Night Series by PC Cast...so these series are my favorites and it's sad when they end. But out of all of these, and more authors and series, I love the Hollows series the best.

    Story
    "I can't believe it's almost over!!!!"

    I believe that the next book will be the last in the series and it makes me a little sad. However, this is an awesome second to the last book. There is a lot of foreshadowing and by the end of the book you feel like you're creeping to the top of the hill on a massive roller coaster- lots of adrenaline, excitement and a little foreboding. The storyline is great- the undead asleep, magic going haywire and the chaos that goes along with it. The mystics are an interesting aspect and I hope they come into play in the next book (I kind of hope the series ends with Rachel becoming the Goddess). Al is one of my favorite characters and I hope that he's in the next book. I also hope the chrysalis survives. This has been one of my favorite series, the characters have always been interesting and the storylines never stale. I will be sad to see it end, but what a ride it's been.

    Marguerite Gavin has been an awesome narrator- every voice discernible and every voice consistent throughout every book. Can't say enough good things about how talented she is!!

    "Great addition to the Rachel Morgan series!"
    Where does The Undead Pool rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Right up at the top!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked FINALLY hearing about the progression of Rachel and Trent's romance. It's about time it moved along - but I'm glad it did take several books.


    Which character – as performed by Marguerite Gavin – was your favorite?

    I always like Jinks. I just love his little sayings - he's full of comedy!


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

    Definitely!

    What did you love best about The Undead Pool?

    Learning more about the history of the goddess entity and how it all works.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have dropped the Trent romance line. I know a lot of people love this pairing, but I still remember how he was introduced as a drug running murderer and while he had his reasons to keep his secrets, the secret of the survival of the elven race he in my mind is still a murdering scumbag.


    Which character – as performed by Marguerite Gavin – was your favorite?

    Jenks


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

    mostly


    Any additional comments?

    I hope the final books answers more.

    "Keep them coming!!!!!"
    Would you listen to The Undead Pool again? Why?

    Yes. To absorb details I may have missed the first time around.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story line and the narrator.


    What about Marguerite Gavin’s performance did you like?

    She is wonderful! No one could do Jenks better than her!!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    So Thrilled that Rachel and Trent are finally together, but want Rachel to kick ass again without second guessing herself now that she's in love. I was extremely sad to see the relationship between her and Al come to an end. I hope it is just temporary.


    Any additional comments?

    I think Kim Harrison was up for 12 or 13 in this series. I hope they sign her at least a few more as I don't know how you could cram all the is left unanswered into just one more.
