Review: Ever After (The Hollows, #11) by Kim Harrison
The ever after, the demonic realm that parallels the human world, is shrinking. If it disappears completely, so does all magic. It's up to witch-turned-daywalking-demon Rachel Morgan to avert catastrophe and keep life from changing... for the worse.
While saving the world is important, it isn't Rachel's only motivation. There's also the small fact that she caused the ley line to rip in the first place, setting off a chain reaction of unfortunate events. That little mistake has made her life forfeit unless she can fix it. It's also made her more than a few enemies, including the most powerful demon in the ever after—a terrifying entity who eats souls and now has an insatiable appetite for her. He's already kidnapped her friend and goddaughter to lure her out, and if Rachel doesn't give herself up soon, they'll die.
But Rachel has more than a few impressive and frightening skills of her own, and she isn't going to hand over her soul and her life without one hell of a fight. She's also got a surprise: elven tycoon Trent Kalamack. With this unlikely ally beside her—a prospect both thrilling and unnerving—she's going to return to the ever after, kick some demon butt, rescue her loved ones... and prevent an apocalypse before it's too late. Or, at least that's the plan...

I love this series. I have been putting off reading the last three books for forever because then it meant it was really over and I didn't get to go on dangerous exciting missions with the gang anymore. Rachel is just as awesome as always, but even more now that she is fully aware of what she can do. The whole dynamic with Trent is bittersweet and makes me a little angsty for Rachel. Jenks is still the best partner ever, and this story had a lot less of Ivy than I would have liked but it was understandable. Al I am pretty sure is my favorite though (his part in the end of the book made me laugh out loud) which I find interesting since he was the villain once upon a time.
Side note, I listened to this as an audiobook even though I own the physical and the ebook, and I loved the audio version. I am super picky and have low tolerance for audiobook narrators, but hands down Marguerite Gavin did the best job and is now my favorite narrator. I will gladly listen to the last 2 books in the series since she reads them.
