From the Back Cover
All good things must end . . .
After ten years and thirteen adventures, at last the triumphant conclusion to Kim Harrison's #1 New York Times bestselling Hollows series!
The Witch with No Name
In 2004, Kim Harrison made her debut with Dead Witch Walking, an electrifying urban fantasy novel full of action, mystery, romance, and humor, which introduced bounty hunter and witch Rachel Morgan. Over the course of twelve 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 Ivy'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.

Kim Harrison brought this novel back around to be about the vamps. She made good on her promise compared to other recent books where they sat more on the back burner. It appears to be for good reason though because vampires are the key to changing everything. There were some revelations that truly surprised me and the unpredictable twists kept me at the edge of my seat the whole time.
I was happy to see the demons and elves get a healthy dose of focus as well. Over the years I have grown very attached to their story lines and was happy to see they wouldn't have too many loose ends.
Rachel and Trent. Yeah, if you're a fan I don't see why that would stop now! They display great teamwork and definitely turn up the heat as they're settling into their relationship together. It's satisfying to see but still hard to believe it's happened considering the long road they took to find one another. Of course it still isn't easy for them. They have very complicated lives, but their determination to make it work just gives a girl all the feels in the world.
Rachel takes her relationships seriously and her friends and family are as strong as ever. We get the answer to the question of whether she is able to save Ivy's soul. That alone is worth the price of admission if you've stuck it out with this series for as long as I have.
The thing is, I was expecting to have the waterworks ready after finishing this final book. 9 years is the longest I've stuck it out with a series. But I finished it feeling satisfied and believing that the characters would be okay. Kim has done her characters justice and she should pat herself on the back for being able to give them what they deserve. And it truly feels deserved with a very fitting ending. They've worked hard and sacrificed so much.
I enjoyed every page from beginning to end in this last installment. We received a lot of answers and many things were wrapped up, but at the same time it also feels like a new beginning so I still want more! I just don't know what I am going to do without my favorite witch, demon, elf, pixy, and vampire team to look forward to once a year.
And now I'm gonna lay the sap on extra thick. Honestly, reading for me won't be the same again, at least for a while. This is the first series to truly introduce me to the adult urban fantasy genre and it's set the bar so high that nothing else can scratch that itch quite like The Hollows can. Everything else fights for second. This is the first series I have followed for so long, so it will always have a special place in my heart for that reason alone. Of course I'm looking forward to what's next, but it's always hard to say goodbye to history, especially as I've gone through the ups and downs with the characters year after year, and I've made quite a few friends in my real life along the way, including Ms. Harrison herself. So goodbye Hollows! Thanks for the ride! Thanks for the memories! Thank you, Kim Harrison! I'll be first in line for your next book!
I treasure each and every one of these books. While there were some story lines and characters that I despised (Pierce) and times when I wanted to throw the book through the window because I was so frustrated with Rachel's stubborn nature and unwillingness to do what I wanted her to do, I have never been disappointed with any book in this series. They are all well crafted, all very entertaining to read. I did not realize how beloved these characters have become to me until I finished this book in the wee hours of the morning this morning and it hit me that I will not be able to read another book in this series ever again.
This book nicely ties up all loose ends and gives us the happy ending we all knew Rachel and Ivy deserved. Bravo, Kim Harrison for a such a nice ride! I have never made it this long in a series, nor have I ever been this dedicated to discovering how characters will turn out when it is all said and done. I am sad it is over, but the ride was amazing.
Rachel has got to be one of the most well-written characters in the Urban Fantasy genre. She has grown up so much throughout the last 10 years, and we’ve grown up with her. Crying for her when things go wrong, and cheering for her when everything goes right. Reading this final book in the series was like saying goodbye to old friends – laughing and crying all the way through.
Rachel has made some incredible friendships on her journey, from just about every race on the planet. Her heart of gold has brought them all together for one final adventure.
The action leaps off the page from the beginning, for a crazy incredible ride, as Rachel tries to find a way to rejoin the undead with their souls, while saving the demons from a life stuck in the Ever After. An Ever After that is shrinking and may just wink out of existence at some point. As always Ivy and Jenks have her back, along with Trent, Al, and Bis, each providing assistance in their own unique way.
The love between Ivy and Rachel is so much more palpable than the love between Rachel and Trent, even though that love was destined from the first book. Ivy and Rachel have been through so much together and Rachel will not stop before she finds a way to save Ivy’s soul, even if means her own death.
Jenks is once again hilarious. I think he has some of the best quotes of the entire series in this one. “Well that’s about as comfortable as finding a naked fairy in your son’s bed” or “Tink’s last will and testicles! You should have been there Ivy!”
I was torn between wanting to swallow it whole, and taking my time to make it last. I put it down many times, afraid to finish it too soon, but in the end it was just too good to put down for very long. There were moments that were so intense that I wanted to cry (and did). There were moments of action where my heart beat so fast I thought it might pop out of my chest. There were moments I wanted to scream at Rachel for not trusting that Trent loved her, regardless of the fact that he could not continue his elven race with her. I wanted Rachel to realize she did deserve him, she did deserve his love, and this was her moment to show everyone. Of course that means making herself completely vulnerable and until she can admit she loves him too, she isn’t ready to do that.
Without giving anything away and, as long time readers, you probably already know this, Rachel does get her happy ending. There is no way Kim Harrison could end this beloved series any other way. Although there were so many intense, edge of your seat moments, you wished you could stand up and fight with her. But Rachel didn’t need our help, not with her tight group of friends.
It is so fitting to see her help Trent raise Ray, the beautiful little girl that Ceri so obviously named after her, along with Trent’s biological daughter Lucy. To realize that no matter what kind of family you have, 2 moms, 2 dads, or 2 elves, a witch, a vampire, a demon, and a pixy, all that matters is that you’re loved… if that’s not the perfect example of family, and the perfect backdrop to a story that took years in the making, I don’t know what is.
I am going to miss Rachel, but I look forward to rereading the series, just so I can go back and say hi to an old friend.
