Despite dating one vampire and living with another, Rachel Morgan has always managed to stay just ahead of trouble...until now.
A fiendish serial killer stalks the Hollows, and no one living in or around Cincinnati - human, inhuman, or undead - is safe.
An ancient artifact may be the key to stopping the murderer - a mysterious relic that is now in the hands of Rachel Morgan, fearless independent bounty hunter and reckless witch. But revealing it could ignite a battle to the death among the vast and varied local supernatural races.
Rachel's been lucky so far. But even she can't hide from catastrophe forever.

I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!
This is a good, story, but not great like book 4.....the first half of the book drags a bit, but as a true Rachel fan, I knew it would get better...and BAM...the 2nd half of this book was incredibly awesome....
When Rachel tries to make a deal with the artifact...and it turns into a violent blood bath...I felt so bad for her....always trying to do something good, and it backfires....
I love Rachel of course, but then Jenks....and Al....
When they find Kisten....I was so sad....I loved him and he didn't deserve that....
I love this series, but since book 6 is not narrated by Marguerite Gavin, I will be reading it the old fashioned way on My Kindle....lol then I will go back to audio for book 7!
I am easily amused!
I loved this book but hated parts of it. Once again the book is nonstop action that leaves your head spinning and your heart reeling. There is a particularly steamy scene, which is the first in the series that I remember, that made quite an impression with me. The world building continues and The Hollows becomes more complicated and intriguing.
I would warn folks that it you are a big Rachel fan you may want to make sure that you finish the book in private because there are some heart wrenching events that are better read uninterrupted. A great book.
I have loved this series, and the way Marguerite Gavin narrates them. Jenks, especially, has been a hilarious part of the stories. But I am getting tired of Ivy's antics. Quite frankly, I have never been a fan of situations where one person tries to high pressure, or even force, someone to have sex with them. I can't find anything likable about this character who thinks she has the right to force someone else to live by what she want, dictating what Rachel's allowed to do. Nevermind what Rachel wants. And I really can't understand how Rachel is willing to put up with all the unreasonable demands Ivy puts on her. For this reason, I'm a little leary about continuing with this series. I think, at the very least, I will be taking a break from this series for a while.
Well, I don't even know what to say. This book has a hilarious wedding scene (think Julia Roberts humor) to scenes that rip your heart out. This book hangs with me thinking "What? No that can't really be true." 2, TWO characters die in this book, it seems that from the first to the last chapter there are twists and turns.
I listened to Ever After first and then HAD to start at the beginning to find out more.
I love Marguerite Gavin voice and how she give life to each individual in the plot. Wonderful, Wonderful, Wonderful combination!
The story is great.
I’ve listened to other books in Kim Harrison’s “Hollow’s” series and am used to hearing the same narrator.
The narration for this book might not be as challenging to listen to if this narrator had started from the beginning of the story.......Or.......had listened to one of the previous books and pronounced the character names the same way.
Some of her pronunciations are so far from the previous that in the second half of the listen, I didn’t know who she was referring to.
For the 5th book in the series, Rachel is another heroin that the character doesn't seem to grow as books progress, she seems suck in this whiney teenage girl that is a hippocrate. As far as being a hunter, she really hasn't done ANY hunting in the past 5 books. She has gotten her ass handed to her many times and saved by others many many times.
Good story and good characters. Keeps me interested and entertained. This is by no means a deep read but I definitely enjoy the book. I think the narrator does an excellent job.
Once again, Rachel is trying to save the world and her friends. The one thing I like about this series is that it is like real life. When bad things happen, they happen all at once. There are several plot threads, but they revolve around familiar characters. So, it is easy to keep track of all of the action. Along with the action, there is lots of drama revolving around the Ivy/Kisten/Rachel triangle. This is an incredibly well plotted book that will make you angry, anxious and sad at times. By the end of the book I, like Rachel, was emotionally drained. I I look forward to reading the next book. Some storylines were resolved and others are developing. I look forward to reading the next book.
Realization, double-cross and endangerment
Yes and I tried
Great book, great reader and the series is worth the cost
