Book Description
Publication Date: September 9, 2014
It’s Rachel Morgan’s ultimate adventure . . . and anything can happen in this final book in the New York Times bestselling Hollows series.

Rachel Morgan has come a long way from her early days as an inexperienced bounty hunter. 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 unexpectedly become something much more.

But power demands responsibility, and world-changers must always pay a price. Rachel has known that this day would come—and now it is here.

To save Ivy’s soul and the rest of the living vampires, to keep the demonic ever after and our own world from destruction, Rachel Morgan will risk everything. . . .

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

Kim Harrison does it again with this final installment of the HOLLOWS SERIES. It has taken me a while to figure out what to say. It is always hard to say goodbye to your favorite characters. Rachel, Trent, Jenks, and Ivy are some of the most well-written characters that I have seen. I will miss Jenk’s little sayings, they always bring a smile to my face. Rachel has had so much character growth, with her powers, and relationships. Kim Harrison ties up everything very nicely. Rachel  has to find out how to give vampires back their soul, once they get their soul, what will keep them from committing suncide. Things just don’t go the way Rachel wants it to go. So things go to hell in a handbasket. This has been a hard review to do. I just don’t want the ride to end, so I just kept putting it off, but I took the bull by  the horns and wrote the review. For anyone who has not read this series, I urge to start it. This series will make you laugh, and cry. So now I give THE WITCH WITH NO NAME 5/5 stars. Great series, and great characters.

    #1 New York Times bestselling author Patricia Briggs’s Mercy Thompson series has been hailed as “one of the best” (Fiction Vixen). Now, Mercy must deal with an unwanted guest—one that brings a threat unlike anything she’s ever known.

An unexpected phone call heralds a new challenge for Mercy. Her mate Adam’s ex-wife is in trouble, on the run from a stalker. Adam isn’t the kind of man to turn away a person in need—and Mercy knows it. But with Christy holed up in Adam’s house, Mercy can’t shake the feeling that something about the situation isn’t right.

Soon, her suspicions are confirmed when she learns that Christy has the farthest thing from good intentions. She wants Adam back and she’s willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen, including turning Adam’s pack against Mercy.

Mercy isn’t about to step down without a fight, but there’s a more dangerous threat circling. Christy’s stalker is more than a bad man—in fact, he may not be human at all. As the bodies start piling up, Mercy must put her personal troubles aside to face a creature with the power to tear her whole world apart.

  1. Kat Richardson -Greywalker Novels.revenantBook Description
    Publication Date: August 5, 2014
    Harper Blaine was your average small-time PI until she died—for two minutes. Now Harper is a Greywalker, treading the thin line between the living world and the paranormal realm. And these abilities are landing her all sorts of “strange” cases….

Turmoil, sickness, and destruction are sweeping through Europe—and its effects are being felt all the way across the world in Seattle. Harper Blaine and her lover, Quinton, suspect that Quinton’s father, James Purlis—and his terrifying Ghost Division—are involved.

Following a dark trail of grotesque crimes and black magic across the Old World, the pair slowly draws closer to their quarry. But finding and dismantling the Ghost Division won’t be enough to stop the horror that Purlis has unwittingly set in motion.

An ancient and forgotten cult has allied with Quinton’s mad father. And their goals are far more nightmarish than Harper and Quinton—or even Purlis—could ever imagine.

The pursuit leads to Portugal, where the desecrated tomb of a sleeping king and a temple built of bones recall Harper’s very first paranormal case and hold clues to the cult’s true intentions. Harper and Quinton will need all the help they can get to avert a necromantic cataclysm that could lay waste to Europe and drag the rest of the world to the brink of war.

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

like most people, I am looking forward to reading this book. I am anxious to see how Kim Harrison wraps everything up in the series. Rachel Morgan is one of my favorite kick-ass heroines. Yeah most times she is just flying by the seat of her pants to try to solve what is going on, sometimes she makes it look easy, but in truth she doesn’t know what the hell she is doing. She doesn’t always have the answers, but she gets the job done. i am  hoping that Trent and her stay together, for he has been there for her since the first. He is the only guy that really gets her. The other guys that were in her life did not really know her. Trent has known her since camp, and ever since has been a thorn in her side; until she fell in love with him. Their relationship has been an odd courtship since book one  DEAD WITCH WALKING. 

Out of the supporting cast Jenks is one of my favorites for his blunt way of talking and his sarcasm. He always makes me laugh when I read these books. So if you have not read this series, PLEASE, PLEASE, do so. You will not be disappointed. THE WITCH WITH NO NAME  will be the last book in the series.   🙁  I will be sad to see the series end. I know good things don’t last forever, so I will patiently until the next series.

REVIEW: THE UNDEAD POOL BY KIM HARRISON(HOLLOWS #12)

Book Description

         Publication Date:         February 25, 2014

Supernatural superhero Rachel Morgan must counter a strange magic that could spell civil war for the Hollows in this sexy and bewitching urban fantasy adventure in acclaimed New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison‘s Hollows series.

Witch and day-walking demon Rachel Morgan has managed to save the demonic ever after from shrinking, but at a high cost. Now, strange magic is attacking Cincinnati and the Hollows, causing spells to backfire or go horribly wrong, and the truce between the races, between Inderlander and human, is shattering. Rachel must stop this dark necromancy before the undead vampire masters who keep the rest of the undead under control are lost and all-out supernatural war breaks out.

Rachel knows of only weapon to ensure the peace: ancient elven wild magic, which carries its own perils. And no one know better than Rachel that no good deed goes unpunished . . .

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON

SPOILERS*****SPOILERS******SPOILERS******SPOILERS

I will try not to reveal too much of the book and spoil it for you, but just in case I put up the spoiler alert for those that don’t want the story spoiled for them. With that said let’s begin. We start off several months after the last book EVER AFTER ended and Rachel is doing security for Trent. She is also trying to convince herself that she is not falling for him and to get the kiss out of her mind. Then the action starts off with a bang and we have nonstop action throughout the book. In this book something or someone has put the Undead Master Vampires to sleep and not wake up. For those that have been waiting a long time for Trent and Rachel to finally get together will not be disappointed. In usual Rachel fashion she is flying by the seat of her pants trying to find the answer to the problem of how to save her city before it is destroyed.

This is one epic adventure that will take you on  one wild ride. When Rachel is infected with mystics, she has to find a way to return them to her line and the Goddess before she goes insane. If you think jumping a train is a walk in he park, you would be mistaken. The last resort to rid herself of the mystics is to see if the demons know of a way to get rid of them. Kim Harrison delivers another exciting adventure, and as we get closer to the end of the series I hate to see it end.  I recommend this series and this book. So far this is the best one yet and I give it 5/ 5 stars.

I BOUGHT THE NEW KIM HARRISON NOVEL

I am a big fan of Kim Harrison and her Rachel Morgan series. I am excited about reading THE UNDEAD POOL, the only snag right now is that I have to finish the book that I am in the middle of reading. I am reading Jennifer Estep’s THE SPIDER. So far it is pretty good. Here lately I have been buying books on my kindle, because I have been running out of room to put books on my shelves. I had to have Kim Harrison’s in hardback, so I would have it for my collection.

As we get closer and closer to the end of the series, I catch myself wishing that the story would not end. In my mind I know that it has to end, for if we let it continue then the story will just become stale and repetitious. We as fans don’t want that to happen to a great story. Another of my favorite authors that I am looking forward to in March is Patricia Briggs. She has a new Mercy Thompson book coming out March 4, called NIGHT BROKEN. March for me has always been a big new release month for my favorite authors. I usually pick up about 15 books in this month alone. I usually save up for this month, so I can get the books that I have been waiting a year for. Well Charlie and me are tired and I think we will go to bed. It is also time for more sinus medicine for my headache that I cannot get rid of for the past 3 days. So I will tell you good night.
