After 10 years and 13 adventures, at last the triumphant conclusion to Kim Harrison's number-one New York Times best-selling Hollows series!
In 2004, Kim Harrison made her debut with Dead Witch Walking, an electrifying urban audiobook novel full of action, mystery, romance, and humor, which introduced bounty hunter and witch Rachel Morgan. Over the course of 12 books, Rachel confronted numerous threats, vanquished a range of cunning and powerful enemies, risked her heart, suffered haunting loss, and nearly lost her life. Now, in The Witch with No Name, Kim Harrison brings back her wildly popular heroine for one final, epic battle.
Rachel Morgan's come a long way from the klutzy runner fleeing a bad job. She's faced vampires and werewolves, banshees, witches, and soul-eating demons. She's crossed worlds, channeled gods, and accepted her place as a day-walking demon. She's lost friends and lovers and family, and an old enemy has become something much more.
But power demands responsibility, and world-changers must always pay a price.
That time is now.
To save her best friend's soul and the rest of the living vampires, to keep the demonic ever-after and our own world from utter destruction at the hands of fanatics, Rachel Morgan will risk everything.

QUESTION : DOES LISTENING TO AUDIO BOOKS MAKE YOU SMARTER? If so, I'm. Freakin Genius!
Wow! What can I say? Kim Harrison did an extraordinary job at wrapping up her "Hollows" series. We finally find out the answers to so many questions that have been floating around for almost the entire series.
I really liked that Ivy is such a prevalent part of this book. She has really sacrificed a lot because of her love and friendship for Rachel. So it was nice to see some light come into her sometimes sad existence.
There is plenty of Trent in this book too. Which was GREAT! But one of the best parts of this book is the relationship between Al and his "itchy witch".
What a good book. I'm still wheeling. It's just that incredible. I wish other series I've read would have ended half this good.
I love this book and hate this book. I love the world Kim made and love to escape to it. However every time I read this book and with way it ends smile and cry because there are no more books after this one. With that said, I would recommend reading the entire series (even though there are no more coming out) just for the feelings that the end of the series gives you.
I have not read the written addition. But I am sure the audio version is more alive, because of the narration.
All of her other books....fantastic.
As much as I was dreading for this series to end, the final scene was my favorite.
It truly had me emotional the entire book, the suspense, the anticipation of how it was going to be worked out. She just did it perfectly.
I will miss these characters, Rachel's world was a great place to visit.
Have read or listened to this entire series, and I must say that it was well worth the time. Harrison created an alternate world full of demons, witches, elves and vampires, made it thoroughly engrossing with good times and bad. The books had times that we cried for characters lost, feared for the future, and laughed out loud. I grew close to this little family and will miss them all, Jinx's sense of humor, Newt's unpredictability, the mystery of Trent, and Al being my favorite with his arrogance and seemingly uncaring attitude.
This book ties up all the loose ends of the previous books, solves the dilemma of the demons, the soul searching of the vampires, and the future path for all the supes.
Rachel does find out where she fits in to the whole scheme of things, finally, with a satisfying close to the series. Thanks Kim.
I am still digesting the first "gotta hear all of it NOW" listen. I'll go back and savor it again soon. The narrator is fantastic. The book is well written and lends itself to the production of an Audible performance wholeheartedly.
The final chapter. I keep replaying it over and over in my head. Wonderful ending to an engaging series. No cliffhangers, no "what ifs" and it is just exactly the way I would have written the ending. Absolutely fantastic!
So many to choose from, but probably Al's unexpected rescue of Rachel and Trent. It said so much without saying anything. But wait, maybe the scene in the destroyed garden, or maybe Ivy and Nina at the church, or the Rosewood babies, or ...... you get my point.
Oh my yes! When Rae used the word Mom. I will not spoil it by saying more.
Al's final "job" was brilliant and totally worth a book on it's own!!!!! Please don't let this be the last time we visit the Hollows!!!!
5 stars is i love and i will read agani and again. 1 is i hate and i never want to hear about it ever again. YES = :))) - NO= :'(
I have honestly loved this book, it is one of my favorites in this series. So many events so many twists so many changes.
Morgen was put into a tough spot, between a rock and a hard place and it felt like the world was against her. Demons, Elves, witches, werwolves, pixies and so on they all were involved and gosh how so many things happened here...
When i thought the book ended, it wasn't even close... I think Kim Harrison did a great job with this book and its ending was fantastic.
Loved it and loved this whole series .. Wonder if thats it or if there will be more of our lovely characters
Ditto the previous comments - Loved everything about the book, the series, the narration ... just everything! I'm happy ... I'm sad... I need at least a couple of days to muse before I even think of starting another book ... just Wow!
Top twenty or so just for the time invested and the humor of the series overall
Without spoiling it, the end...
Yes, and she is entertaining in most
Finally what we've all been waiting for.
It is always hard to let go of a favorite series, but unlike the ambiguous ending of "The Women of Otherworld," this book neatly wraps up the adventures of Rachel, Ivy and Jenks, even giving us a glimpse into the future similar to "Mockingjay," proving that Rachel truly made a difference and got her happy ending. The main focus of this story was Cormell's forcing Rachel to save Ivy's soul by ordering a series of hits on Ivy. Either Rachel somehow keeps Ivy's soul with her when she dies or another undead Tamwood vampire joins the existing power structure, still unstable after the events in "The Undead Pool." As a consequence of Cormell's interference, Rachel is further stripped of nearly everything she considers important in her life.
Ms Gavin's performance is once again a pleasure. In my mind, she has become the voice of Rachel. The specific voice characterizations for Rachel, Ivy, Jenks, Trent, Al and Newt are different enough that by this time, you know which character is talking.
It would be unfortunate to start with this book. As any series, I recommend starting with the first one, as "Dead Witch Walking" is actually better in audio format in my opinion than when I attempted to read it as a physical book.
Farewell, Rachel. As I await Ms Harrison's next project, I plan on indulging in her other series since I discovered that Dawn Cook is another nom-de-plume. I have read "First Truth," but not the other three, giving me something else to fill the void left by the ending of this amazing series.
"end of a great series"
Selfishly I regret the ending of great series thanks Ms Harrison. Excellent narration Ms Gavin.
