At long last... The final book in the New York Times bestselling Hollows series by Kim Harrison!

Rachel Morgan's come a long way from the clutzy runner of Dead Witch Walking. 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 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.

 LAST BOOK IN THE SERIES SO THERE MAY BE SERIES SPOILERS AHEAD.

The Witch with No Name may not have been the best book in the series (it was close) but it left me satisfied. What a great ending to a fantastic urban fantasy series. The last chapter almost earned it 5 stars for me. But I dropped it to 4.5 stars because I thought that The Undead Pool and Pale Demon where just a touch better.

Rachel wouldn’t be Rachel if she didn’t try to mess up something good in her life. I was getting a little tired of her second guessing her being with Trent. I kept thinking “Don’t you fuck this up Rachel!” Trent really was the right guy for Rachel. He would call her on her bull shit every time.

I thought that with The Undead Pool that we would get the answers to the undead and their souls. But no, it carried over to The Witch with No Name and it gets wrapped up.  So does the storyline of the Demons and the Ever After. I love how Kim Harrison weaved the two species issues together and how they were solved.

I was worried about Al after The Undead Pool but he was back this time and he and Rachel made up. I love Al! And I got teary eyed a few times on his behalf. Seriously I’m a little misty eyed now just thinking about him.

With The Witch with No Name being the last book we got to see some characters from earlier books show up and I was so glad that Nick was not one of them! Rachel’s mom shows up along with a few other characters to help round out a nice cast to bring the series to an end.

Now that the ride is over I’m going to miss Al and Jenks the most.  I’ll never look at Tinkerbell the same after hearing all of Jenks’ curses involving her. Here are some of my favorites.

  • Tink’s titties.
  • Tink’s a Disney whore.
  • Tink loves a duck.
  • Tink’s little pink dildo

There is no doubt in my mind I will revisit this series on audio. I’ve really enjoyed Marguerite Gavin bring this fantastic world and characters by Kim Harrison to life.

I coexist with my husband of 15 years, our 11-year-old son and two chilled cats in the Deep South.

After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.

While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).

  1. Lovely review; I’m with you on everything you said, from loving Al to Jenks’ curses, to Rachel’s somewhat annoying habit of messing things up for herself. I absolutely LOVED Rachel’s mom in this one. And the scene where Rachel and Trent figure out what Al’s job is is just hilarious!

    I’m sad that it’s over, but I agree that I’ll be going through the audiobooks in the relatively near future. I had listened to the first 6 or so a few years’ back and was ok with them, back before I was even willing to listen to audiobooks.

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. ROFL — Tink’s titties.
    Tink’s a Disney whore.
    Tink loves a duck.
    Tink’s little pink dildo.

    I DNF’d the first one and obviously that’s a mistake. I must revisit it now that I have a better appreciation for UF. 13 books is saying a lot, Sookie wasn’t able to sustain that kind of power as well as Anita Blake.

  3. Ahh I love Jenks’s swearing. It totally made his character for me 😀

    Ugh, am I glad Nick isn’t in this one. I hated that guy. I still have to read a major part of the series, but I’m glad everything got wrapped up so well
