[PDF] American Demon The Hollows #14

When Friendship Followed Me Home Juniors
Inclusion of a lot of complicated spellwork It was awesome I remember Rachel spelling in previous books but I don t recall it ver being uite this involved She was trying to develop a new spell and I found Naked Choke every stage of the process absolutely fascinating I hope this leveled up component continues in the next bookThe Hollows is one of my top urban fantasy series It s not my overall favorite precisely but it is responsible for a couple of my single favorite scenes across any genre Harrison really knows how to build momentum and she has truly dazzled me with some of mostpic moments But that gradual momentum that always leads Pleasure Activism: The Politics of Feeling Good epic moments But that gradual momentum that always leads amazing payoffs takes time to develop And so as we re just beginning another story arc in American Demon the pacing is rather casual throughout most of the story Which is just fine because when a series touches you like this one has meven the slower parts have a lot of merit It was a great way to Murder at the Mansion ease back into the worldRecommendations this is a must read for fans of the series the story uality continues as strong asver With that in mind I wouldn t recommend new readers diving in without first reading the main Hollows series Also Harrison published a really good preuel novel The Turn that she referenced often in American Demon so if you haven t had a chance to read that one yet I think it added a lot to the Healing Souls experience I want to thank Berkley Publishing Group Kim Harrison and Netgalley for allowing me access to anarly copy of American Demon you made my yearVia The Obsessive Bookseller at wwwNikiHawkescomOther books you might like This book is proof that a well beloved UF series with an official Seductive Surrender ending does not have to EndWhat am I saying Nothing much No ret cons needed We just have a new beginning with the same old characters we loveBut wait isn t our witch ahem just a LITTLE TOO OVERPOWERED Especially with that last book going NUTS with the changes changes andven bigger changesNope Because the world moves on Nothing is so impressive and amazing that others can t st all over your parade deny it Seductive Surrender (Highland Heather Romancing a Scot, ever happened or make your life a living hell just because they re ignorant andor a jerkHuh That kinda sounds like a slice right out of real life noAnd THAT is why this book picks up not too long after thevents of book 13 of the Hollows and starts back up with Return to the Hollows with nothing than a shrug Our Witchy Morgan is never given the credit she deserves and all these new characters showing up gives the series new lifeAnd YES Jenks is still his glorious self Bis too And happy time with Trent is uite happyThe novel gives us good mystery good action and plenty of smoldering lust and much in the way of annoyance for certain jerks In other words it s a classic return to what made the series special I love it It was fantastic to be reading about itchy witch again Going back to this world after six years made me savor it When the book begins Rachel is on the phone planning a park date with Trent the girls and surprisingly Ellasbeth too Rachel is back at her old homechurch She is meeting Jenks and Ivy They re trying to decide what their future looks like Can they still work together or is time for one of them to move on Should they reconstruct their home or find a new place It looks like Ivy is ready to move on and live with Nina Rachel understands but can t leave Jenks alone This reunion is broken up by the appearance of a zombie The appearance of the zombie is the first clue that something is not right New cases are popping up where couples are attacking their love ones for past grievances Someone seems to have manipulated their minds while sleeping When Al is attacked Rachel knows this is too close to home Rachel knows she has her hands full She is dealing with her relationship with Trent and his x the politics between Demons and Elves a new vampire moving into town affecting Ivy s life and she can sense she is running out of time in stopping the new threat So many things I loved about American Demon I love Trent Kalamack He has grown so much as a character He likes himself better and it s all due to Rachel He has made his own sacrifices and lost some of his position of importance as an Elf but he knows it s worth it Rachel acted so much mature in American Demon She lets people help her and she is pausing to think before reacting Al was adorable all the way around I wish he was prominent in this book He makes me smile very time he shows upDavid Ivy Jenks and Bis are also so important to the series It wouldn t be the same without themI still feel a tug on my heart very time Kisten is mentioned I will always miss himSo glad Kim Harrison is writing books in this world I ve only one uestion when is the next one outCliffhanger No45 FangsA

friend or foe can cost verything to the Hollows gangI L o v d American Demon Harrison has captured verything we loved in the Hollows series but brought as an ntirely new series to devour If you are a fan of the Hollows you are going to love it If you are jumping right into Return to the Hollows you can read it without the Hollows but I highly recommend reading the Hollows first Harrison does a good job giving some background but nothing compared to the connections you will gain reading both seriesI received this ARC copy of American Demon from Berkley Publishing Group Ace This is my honest and voluntary reviewMy Rating 5 starsWritten by Kim HarrisonSeries Hollows Book 14Hardcover 496 pagesPublisher Ace June 16 2020Language EnglishISBN 10 0593101413ISBN 13 978 0593101414Genre Urban Fantasy Noble Want check us out on Tome Tender Book Blog or on Facebook 3 stars I kind of wish I had just stopped reading the series at book 13 Harrison nded it so perfectly While I was xcited to get back into The Hollows my mind is screaming not like this When I started this book it felt really good to be back in The Hollows with Rachel and the gang but halfway through I realized this book was waaaayyyy too long winded and the plot was all over I nded up kind of skimming until the nd which I also somewhat hated Not sure if I will continue this series if there are books I should have let it be Happy Hollows Day Damn it feels good to say that againWell if there were Le valeureux guerrier ever the perfect occasion to dust off the old blog this is it It s been six years since we said see you later to Rachel and the gang but that later is NOW and I am so glad to have The Hollows back It was my flagship series for many years and honestly when the seriesnded I was feeling a bit of urban fantasy burnout I also went to get a masters degree so I had to table reading for fun for a few years and it never really uite picked back up to what it used to be Snowflakes on the Sea even after I was done with school So is this the time to reel me back in The short answer YES You would think after a baker s dozen or so of books that the Hollows well of ideas may have run dry But really it doesn t The book comes in at a hefty near 500 pages so t It s been a while since I read The Witch With No Name Longnough 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 Wrathful Chaos: Five Books of Satanic Philosophy even considered a full series reread of the Hollows It would not have been a hardship Those books were 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 this picks up after thepilogue from TWWNN the answer is no It s just a few months after the main vents of the series came to a close I will get back to that pilogue 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 nforcement 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 pretty insecure on that front not about their love but whether he would be better off marrying Ellsbeth and taking his rightful place among the lvesThe world kind of grudgingly accepts Rachel seeing as how she saved magic and Humanism: The Greek Ideal and its Survival everything Butveryone 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 pulled into an investigation involving supernaturals who are attacking their lov. 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 Ed 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 new demon named Hodin And at the same time is trying to help Trent hold on to power against Landon who I am Love 2.0 (A Cates Brothers Book, embarrassed to say I did not remember at all as he vies to take control of thelves 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 ven the old guy that used to give Rachel advice in her neighborhood they are all gone but not forgotten Same with Trent s parents although that s xciting if you read that preuel 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 njoyed 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 volving and the story is still fresh and I could not ask for than thatAsk for that pilogue mentioned above view spoilerI m reading it as though it was a dream None of the other reviews I read at this point 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 pilogue to me And some people might think that s a little Desire in Seven Voices easy but I kind of like the fact that it reopens the series for anything to happen hide spoiler Kim Harrison takes us back to our beloved Hollows with American Demon and fans will not be disappointedWe join up once again with Rachel Morgan right before thepilogue in The Witch With No Name Harrison introduces two new characters into the book whom I thi Thanks to Berkley and Netgalley for providing me an advanced copy in xchange for an honest reviewI am so happy to be delving back into the world of the Hollows Don t get me wrong I like Kim Harrison s Peri Reed the palate cleanser she worked on to give herself a break from the finished Hollows I m really sad that she didn t publish the third one I didn t care much for her standalone Perfunctory Affection It wasn t Bad But It Wasn but it wasn her best work ither I hate to say it because I know authors need to write other things to keep themselves happy and fresh minded but Hollows is where she shines the most It s where she s at the top of her gameThis one opens luckily with a uick recap of characters and recent The Casa Mono Cookbook events which is a blessing I tried hard to complete my reread of the series before I needed to read this one Alas my reading mojo hasn t been nearly as big as in previous years so I finished up through book five gasp thatnding is so hard and wasn t able to finish I m so glad we re back in Rachel s life Jenks is one of my favorite characters and I love Al Sadly Al takes a backseat in this one due to a VERY dangerous nemy but that turns out to be okay A few new characters are introduced that I really really like and Cincinatti s shaken up yet again with new leadership on multiple frontsAll in all I loved this one very much but I did have to deduct half a star and go with 45 strictly because of something at the nd It would have been a whole star but luckily Harrison hinted that there will be a revisiting of this specific thing Can t and won t spoil it for you sorry not sorryLooking forward to the next book The Rule already Hope it releases next year and we get a little xtra resolution and a lot of Rachel and gang Keep m coming Harrison 455 stars If you can just mentally delete the pilogue that nded the series at book 13 AMERICAN DEMON IS A FANTASTIC 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 xciting 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 xcellent job xpanding the playing 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 new 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 very pageI was njoying the story for all the things listed above but what really set this book apart as a strong addition to the series was the. Ight have gone just a little bit wrong That the very same acts you and your friends took to forge new powers may have released something bound by the old With a rash of zombies some strange ne. ,
