Ever After (The Hollows #11) by Kim Harrison


The eleventh book in the Hollows series was a decent story, if more of the same. Ivy made only a cameo in this book, and I have to say I didn't miss her at all. As with previous stories, this one deals with demons and elves. It is fairly fast-paced, and follows Harrison's standard pattern - adventures punctuated by stops in Rachel's kitchen. Plans go awry, Rachel is stubborn and impulsive, but somehow it all works out in the end. That's probably a slightly over-simplified summary, but people who read this series will know what I mean.

I'm still trying to figure out why everyone cared so very much about what Rachel was planning to wear to her showdown with Ku'Sox. I'm sure Harrison could've come up with a less ridiculous way for people to speak to Rachel alone than setting up the whole "what are you wearing to save the world, I want to see your closet" thing. Harrison spends a lot of time justifying things that seem illogical but are necessary for her plot to continue the way she wants it. Most of the time I overlook it with an eye-roll, but it tends to make everything less intense and believable. However, I've taken a step back with my constant judging in this genre, and just try to enjoy the read instead of thinking about it too much.
