# Book Review: Ever After by Kim Harrison
Monday, January 21, 2013 / permalink

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 will start my review by saying this book has some very sad moments in it. I cried! I got a chance to read this awhile ago and it has stuck with me since then. Harrison really tugs at my heart strings in this. So Rachel has to fix the ley lines that are causing the ever after to shrink at a rapid rate. If she doesn't fix it, she will die at the hands of the demon council. Since she and Bis are the ones who caused the tear in the ever after, Rachel is responsible for fixing it. I gobbled up this book with tears, happiness and frustration. 

I've always loved Al, but in this book your just learn to love him even more. We learn more about him than ever before. He is such a wonderfully written character and his evolution to something more human has been amazing.

The ending of this book is so fun and fantastical. It gives that warm fuzzy, triumphant feeling. With a cool ending to learning about the demon and elf history, you'll want to fly on the back of your very own gargoyle.

We also see a reappearance of Elsbeth  had me so frustrated. I want Trent and Rachel to be together damnit! GO AWAY ELSBETH!! GO AWAY!

There really isn't a dull moment in this book. It's full of character revelations and further deepens your attachment and loyalty to them. If you haven't experienced the magic of these books, pick them up now. This is a wonderful urban fantasy series.
