Through the years Rachel has grown in power and skill. She’s gotten herself into and out of some of the toughest situations and faced down countless adversaries. And now is the time for her to take all that she has learned and put it to the test. Rynn Cormel wants his soul and to get it he will do whatever it takes. It doesn’t matter that Rachel just saved the undead vampires in Cincinnati. Cormel will kill whoever he has to in order to force Rachel to bind his soul to him. But she has to find it first.
The Witch With No Name was a phenomenal book. No one was safe and it was a hell of a ride to find out each person's fate. There were some unexpected turns and carefully crafted words to make your heart stop. Rachel drew on everything she had to navigate the numerous obstacles thrown in her path. But even with all her power and abilities, sacrifices had to be made.
Remember back in Dead Witch Walking when Ivy asked Rachel to save her soul if she died her first death? Kim Harrison brought the series full circle by making the main plot device finding and retrieving an undead vampire’s soul. Given that The Witch With No Name was intended to be the last of The Hollows, this was a brilliant way to end the series. Kim Harrison never lost track of the initial spark that created her world. She brought back most of the characters we've met in the series, but in a way that didn't crowd the book And almost everyone finished out their character arcs.
I think the best thing about this series has been that Kim Harrison never loses sight of what's important to her characters. They've grown so much over the years, but still, captivate me just as much as they did from the start. Despite the heartaches and setbacks they have encountered, they pick themselves back up. The Witch With No Name highlights the ties that bind each character and the lengths they will go to protect their loved ones.
I am so happy The Hollows has continued. And now, I can’t wait to read American Demon.
