Review

“I couldn’t put it down.” (Wired's GEEK MOM)

“Tense and thrilling.” (Miami Herald)

“Harrison’s gift has been the emotional growth of her characters. This is no exception.” (Tulsa World)

“Fast-paced and entertaining.” (Publishers Weekly)

“The world-building is incomparable” (Fresh Fiction)

“Longtime fans will find their emotions running the gamut, as events for many of Harrison’s familiar characters take new and sometimes tragic turns this time around. Rachel’s journey of self-discovery is hard, frightening and definitely life-threatening; it also makes for fantastic entertainment!” (Romantic Times BOOKclub)

“…for fans of her work, this lengthy and complicated volume will be a welcome new addition to her universe.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“The pace and tone of A Perfect Blood reflects its protagonist: a little more cautious, reflective and purposeful, and the book is more powerful as a result…Harrison provides the strongest and most self-assured Rachel we’ve seen yet.” (Miami Herald on A PERFECT BLOOD)

“Harrison’s colorful cast of supporting characters keeps the story moving among the fast-paced action scenes. Longtime fans will obviously be standing in line for this one. However, readers with any interest in urban fantasy can easily jump into the story.” (Library Journal on A PERFECT BLOOD)

“With the end of this popular series coming soon, fans will be savoring the remaining episodes all the more, and those who have delayed entry will begin jumping on board.” (Booklist on A PERFECT BLOOD)

From the Back Cover

New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison returns to the sexy, supernatural adventures of Rachel Morgan with the eleventh book in the Hollows series

Ever After

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 falls apart.

Of course, there's also the small fact that Rachel is the one who caused the ley line to rip in the first place, and her life is forfeit unless she can fix it. Not to mention the most powerful demon in the ever-after—the soul-eater Ku'Sox Sha-Ku'ru—has vowed to destroy her, and has kidnapped her friend and her 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 partnership fraught with dangers of the heart as well as betrayal of the soul—to return to the ever-after and rescue those she loves. One world teeters on the brink of interspecies war, the other on the brink of its very demise—and it's up to Rachel to keep them both from being destroyed.

Well developed story line and characters.

I read this in one sitting. Carried it everywhere. Skipped the gym and treadmill. Stood next to the microwave reading while dinner cooked. Yes, it was that good. Why is it the books you wait the longest to come out, go by so darn fast?! It's also one of the few books where the title has no OBVIOUS Clint Eastwood inspired Western movie title. More on that later. It's also the first book with a complete, totally un-obscured view of Rachel, albeit in an 1980's pantsuit.

Each author has his or her own way of catching people up - it's been around a year since the last book after all! Kim Harrison does it masterfully - no long, boring paragraphs of back story, or entire chapters just copied from previous books (yes, a well-known SciFi author actually does this!) - just a few succinct lines are enough.

The action is non-stop, the story is gripping from beginning to end. It's what, the 11th book in the series? Pretty incredible. By this point many authors have become lazy and the books show it. Not here. We have plenty of treachery, one very surprising loss (I personally think we should have seen more of the details), a series of kidnappings - plus more "interesting" events (as in the Chinese curse "May you live in interesting times".) . Rachel is the focus of this book. Everyone else is a comparatively minor player. There are more, but I don't want to ruin the shocks. There is one thing I found a little annoying. We see almost EVERY living and undead character that we've met in Cincy again. Some major players are reduced to cameos. Ivy is almost non existent. The two major vampire lords make short appearances, just to remind us about Rachel's promise the help reclaim their souls (probably a setup for the next book.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
By the time many authors finish their 10th or so book, the series becomes stale as the author grows bored with the characters. Not so for Kim Harrison with the Hollows (Rachel Morgan) series. Ever After--the 11th book--is arguably her best work yet, as she weaves a very complex and action-packed tale bringing in all the characters readers of her books know and love--and kills some of them outright. She does it with finesse and ease, bringing us into the story and emotionally tying us to the characters so when they suffer, we suffer. But I'm getting ahead of myself.

The story line is complex too. Someone has been stealing Rosewood babies. At the same time, the Ever After begins shrinking as Rachel's ley line has a black hole-like event horizon that is sucking the Ever After into oblivion. If the Ever After fails, all demons are dead, save those who can day-walk. That would be Rachel and Ku'sox, the insane demon Trent freed from the St. Louis arch some books back. Not only will the demons be gone, but all magic will disappear from the world. Without it, the Inderlanders can't possibly survive humans.

To make matters worse, Rachel is framed for the ley line problem. All the ley lines are discordant, which makes jumps almost impossible without the help of gargoyles. Rachel is put on trial and given a handful of days to fix the problem or die at the hands of the demons. If that isn't messy enough, the kidnappings take an ugly turn and now Rachel has a huge mess to fix.

Amazingly, Harrison handles the complex story with ease as bad guys become good; good guys become bad. We learn more about demons and their relationship with elves. We learn more about undead vampires. And we get more of Trent, Al, and Rachel interactions.

I really love Kim Harrison's books. There are flaws, but her books are usually entertaining and hard to put down. I had trouble putting the book down until I was almost halfway through it, then the irritating contradictions, Rachel's whining, and the slow-moving and convoluted plot frustrated me too much to really enjoy reading it. I am not going to give a summary because other reviewers have already done that.

The writing was too jumbled in Ever After and jumped around constantly. I got so tired of the same formula: Rachel comes up with an idea, Rachel fights (badly), Rachel loses/runs away, Rachel goes off to whine about it for the next 50 pages. This seemed to happen over and over again. Ivy barely made an appearance, and when she did, her character fell flat. Jenks did not contribute much in this book either. He only reacted to everything and said the same fairy curses repeatedly. He was more a parody of himself. Al acted like a sad, pathetic, old man that we're supposed to feel sorry for, instead of the tricky and humorous demon he used to be. So many of the characters' (Ceri, Paine, Al, Rachel, Trent) decisions were way too stupid and did not fit their personalities.

The dialogue was corny ("Come and meet your death!"), Ku'Sox one-dimensional, and the plot dragged. I felt like there should have been more of a sense of urgency and grief, yet there was too much sitting around, drinking coffee, talking about coffee, Rachel sharing long, meaningful gazes with Trent, everybody telling Rachel how great and wonderful she is, and having a freaking pizza party. Rachel has four days to fix the leak she caused into the ever after, yet she goes grocery shopping and screws around for what seems like the majority of the time.
