“Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Tank Girl” – Entertainment Weekly
#1 New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison is back with the eleventh book in her Hollows series. In ‘Ever After‘ Rachel Morgan finds herself in a bit of a conundrum. It all started with the ley-line magic gone somewhat awry. It was a mistake, really – just a simple tear in the continuum. But with a little infernal assistance from the most powerful demon in existence, (the same one who is kidnapping human babies, and most assuredly holds a grudge against Rachel), that small gap has become a gaping chasm that is sucking away the ever-after at an increasing rate.
To raise the stakes even more, if the ever-after disappears completely, so will all the magic in the world. And if all the demons die, they have made it frighteningly clear that they are taking Rachel down with them. Rachel will need to use every weapon in her arsenal to get through this one. Aside from her faithful pixy companion, Jenks, and a teenaged gargoyle, she has few allies powerful enough to help her.
Knowing the odds are against her Rachel will need to call on the demons Algiarept, Newt and Dallkarackint and she’ll finally have to let down her guard and ask for assistance from the elven businessman Trent Kalamack, who has his own reasons to wreak havoc in the ever-after.
The plan is simple: rescue the hostages; don’t die; save the ever-after oh….and prevent a pending apocalypse. Pretty simple unless you consider the small matter of Ku’Sox Sha-Ku’ru, the wildly powerful, soul devouring demon who wants Rachel dead and has kindapped her friend and goddaughter to draw her, once and for all, into the ring of fire.
Here is what author Kim Harrison had to say about the book: “Like most of the books in the series, Ever After is a play on a Clint Eastwood movie, in this case, Hereafter. I think it’s especially fitting since much of the story line revolves around the possible destruction of the ever-after, a secondary reality in the mythology of the series.”
Fans of the series can rejoice as Kim has also announced that there are still 2 more ‘Hollow’s’ books left in the series. The next book will be out in 2015.
