Early Review: The Witch With No Name by Kim Harrison
The Witch With No Name by Kim Harrison
The Hollows # 13
At long last... The final book in the New York Timesbestselling 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.
The blurb says it all "At long last... The final book." It's both so satisfying and yet utterly bittersweet to see this much loved and long running story come to an end. I have to admit that I was more than a little nervous to start this book as there has been so much build up and my expectations were so high. This series, probably more than any I've read, really need to go out with a bang to give true justice to the investment and attachment to these characters. I'm happy to say that THE WITCH WITH NO NAME doesn't go out with a bang. No, it goes out with a whole herd of fireworks and explosion bangs to light up the entire sky on the Fourth of July.
It truly is amazing to see so many long running threads come together and work themselves out. The last couple of books have started pulling things together, but this final book was the final seal in everything, and I simply loved it. Never could I have predicted things to end up the way they have looking back to when I first read Dead Witch Walking. The character growth and change that the entire cast of characters have gone through is simply astounding. But of course Rachel most of all has stolen my heart with her changes. Who would have though that that reckless witch would have turned into the catalyst to changing all the different Inderlander groups for the better.
THE WITCH WITH NO NAME proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Kim Harrison is an absolute master at her craft. I simply cannot express how much I have enjoyed this book and the series as a whole. These books will be on my re-read shelf for many many years to come. My hat goes off to you Ms. Harrison. Bravo!
