Official Blurb:

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.

I finished The Witch with No Name nearly 2 hours ago and I’ll admit I’m feeling a bit lost. As a reader, you mourn the ending of beloved series as you would someone in real life or a pet’s passing. You know in your heart that your favorite characters have either reached their HEA or lost everything in the process. You’re left with a void that will take time to fill. This is the case of The Witch With No Name. It’s the ending of an era. Rachel, Trent, and the gang have been so much a part of my life in the last few years it’s like my best friends have moved away and left me behind. But, enough about my feelings, let’s dive into WWNN. 

Throughout the 13 book series, Rachel has blossomed from a fledgling witch to a thriving, strong witchy demon woman. Trouble and heart break find her in every turn and she can never seem to catch a lucky break. WWNN combines all the growth we’ve experienced with Rachel and Trent for the matter, and showcases her true nature. Her role in the world greatly changes the farther you get through WWNN. Her self doubt melts into self confidence. Harrison couldn’t have written a better final story for Rachel. 

I will admit…I cried at the ending of The Witch With No Name. The ending to say the least is unexpected, but very fitting. I honestly cannot say too much about the book without giving away the major plot points or spoiling the ending for readers. This book is so damn good that no matter if you offered to pay me a billion dollars to tell you how it ends. I wouldn’t do it because it’s unfair to you not to experience it for yourself. The Witch With No Name will make you cry, laugh, and smile with its twisting and turning finale spectacular. 

Lastly, I’d like to personally thank Kim Harrison. Kim, your imaginative and thrilling world that you’ve created in everything that is The Hollows series will be revered for many years to come. Rachel’s trials and tribulations will go on to excite and inspire readers and authors alike in the future. I’m going to be at your signing tomorrow night in Indianapolis. Tomorrow night isn’t about just meeting beloved author and getting your signature in a book. It’s about getting to personally meet the author and person who have re-inspired my literary passion with Rachel’s story. Thank you Kim from the bottom of my heart!
