The Witch With No Name by Kim Harrison
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This book is the last in the series and I went in so excited, I think I hyped it up a lot to myself and that’s what made it not 5 stars once I read it. Or maybe it’s because of the ending, don’t get me wrong. It was good and tied up questions we were wondering. However after tying up this books story it jumps to the future, I can’t remember exactly but somewhere 20 years out when one of Trent’s daughters is getting married.
This future does help explain what becomes of the main characters in the story, but almost leaves me wanting more. I suppose I could do without the missing years, though I would be interested if they were to magically appear. Really what I feel though is that she could use this ending to spin off a new series with Trent’s daughter and her husband since they will have an interesting and unknown future because of their union. Okay spoiler…this ends with one of the girls marrying a demon. Yeah that’s right. Oh and Trent found a way to make babies between elves and demons sooo it leaves us with the idea that him and Rachel could now potentially have a baby if she wants.
WHAT??? NO YOU CAN’T JUST LEAVE US THERE!!!! I really dislike when endings leave us with new questions, thoughts and ideas. The ending ended THIS book well, and potentially the rest of the series. I think I would have been good with they lived happily ever after the end…but NOOOOOOOOOOO she has to introduce new ideas!!! This is why I docked it a star, because if she doesn’t come out with a spin off series then NONONONO…I need more!
This book also didn’t keep my attention as much as previous books in the series until the end. Usually I get a Hollows book and just want to use ever waking non-working moment to read it. This one I could easily set down and go on with doing other things and just picking it up on breaks, or while waiting in the car when picking kids up and such. It was not in a death grip like previous titles from the Hollows have been. It was another ohhh Shit has hit the fan and now everyone is blaming Rachel and she has to save the world YET AGAIN! And of course like all the previous books she does…it was interesting but not 5 star worthy so I docked another star there. It just seemed like a lot of saving the world fluff to get to the end and find out REALLY what will happen to Rachel and Trent!

This is the second pair I bought on Thursday and I’m sporting today. These are the ones I really need to get used to as they are stiffer/thicker than the others. Men’s sized Nautica, hopefully we get a real winter here in NorCal so I can really wear them! I’ve been ogling a women’s pair in another brand at Costco that looks similar. #boots #shoes #fashion
