455 stars If you can just mentally delete the epilogue that
ended the series at book 13 American Demon is a fantastic the series at book 13 American Demon is a fantastic to the Hollows seriesI kind of like that American Demon is an initially unplanned continuation because otherwise the series might have felt too drawn out Now it s moving forward with a fresh intention and that s exciting The book dealt with the aftermath of the crazy things that went down in the first series and it truly felt like a new beginning in this world Harrison did an excellent job expanding the laying field by adding a bunch of new characters and the demon Hodin became an instant favorite I love
Characters With Duality But The Best Part Is That This with duality But the best art is that this installment is still filled with the characters we ve built connections with over the first 13 books so it already has that developed depth that makes longtime fans like me fawn over every ageI was enjoying the story for all the things listed above but what really set this book apart as a strong addition to the series was the inclusion of a lot of complicated spellwork It was awesome I remember Rachel spelling in revious books but I don t recall it ever being uite this involved She was trying to develop a new spell and I found every stage o It s been a while since I read The Witch With No Name Long enough that I was worried I would have a hard time jumping back into this world It s a complicated one but one I loved dearly and invested in fully for many years I even considered a full series reread of the Hollows It would not have been a hardship Those books were The Wapshot Scandal phenomenal But I opted to go in with just a brief glance over my old reviews It worked out fineBecause Kim Harrison is just that goodIf you re wondering whether thisicks up after the epilogue from TWWNN the answer is no It s just a few months after the main events of the series came to a close I will get back to that epilogue in a minute thoughDemons now walk around in our reality though only Dali and Al live openly Ivy has separated herself a bit from Rachel and Jenks working again with law enforcement and trying to make her new bond with Nina work Jenks and Rachel are living on Kirsten s boat while the church gets repaired from its damage in the last big battle And Rachel and Trent are trying to make a go of things Unfortunately she s still feeling The NIGHT. Erotischer Roman pretty insecure on that front not about their love but whether he would be better off marrying Ellsbeth and taking his rightfullace among the elvesThe world kind of grudgingly accepts Rachel seeing as how she saved magic and everything But everyone holds some kind of grudge too mostly about the demon thing So it s hard to find work But when a zombie winds up in her own backyard she gets ulled into an investigation involving supernaturals who are attacking their loved ones seemingly without cause She meets a mysterious new demon named Hodin And at the same time is trying to help Trent hold on to his ower against Landon who I am embarrassed to say I did not remember at all as he vies to take control of the elves by trashing Trent to the worldI loved this book I was afraid it would feel forced but it didn t It felt like coming back to a favorite TV show after a hiatus or a spot on seuel to a favorite movie franchise It does not skip a beat Kisten Piscary Ceri even the old guy that used to give Rachel advice in her neighborhood they are all gone but not forgotten Same with Trent s arents although that s exciting if you read that reuel book a couple of years ago If you are a huge Ivy fan you may be a little disappointed She has a largely reduced role here but she is around and it makes sense in the context of the book Jenks is his normal trash talking self And I just love his friendship with Rachel I adored Rachel with Trent and I really enjoyed seeing him try to navigate his weak footing for the first time This is a guy who has always been large and in charge and it s interesting to see him as an underdog for a changeThese are still the same characters I have always loved but they are still evolving and the story is still fresh and I could not ask for than thatAsk for that epilogue mentioned above view spoilerI m reading it as though it was a dream None of the other reviews I read at this oint are saying that but as Rachel references the dreams she s had that related to this storyline one of them was about Ray getting married and while I can t find my old TWWNN book to compare it it sounded a heck of a lot like that epilogue to me And some eople might think that s a little easy but I kind of like the fact that it reopens the series for anything to happen hide spoiler Rache Bis Jenks and Trent are back in. Rachel Morgan is back and The Hollows will never be the sameWhat happens after you've saved the world Well if you're Rachel Mariana Morgan witch born demon you uickly discover that something .

W murders and an exceedingly mysterious new demon in town it will take everything Rachel has to counter this new threat to the world and it may demand the sacrifice of what she holds most dear.
