Revue de presse

Praise for The Undead Pool:“A great ride in and of itself, rather than simply a buildup to the finale, which is sure to be whiz-bang.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

“Harrison delivers some amazing major payoffs and throws new wrenches into the life of day-walking demon Rachel Morgan....Huge kudos, as Harrison really nails this one!” (RT Book Reviews (top pick))

“There’s a general sensation of closure and imminent climax as Harrison maneuvers toward the end, and patient readers are promised a substantial payoff.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Readers who have followed this series will be overjoyed to have Trent and Rachel finally deal with their complicated history and chemistry.” (Library Journal)

“The world-building is complex and solid....and the cast of characters is immensely engaging. The Undead Pool doesn’t disappoint.” (Tor.com)

Présentation de l'éditeur

It’s Rachel Morgan’s ultimate adventure . . . and anything can happen in this final book by New York Times bestselling author Kim Harrison.

Rachel Morgan has come a long way since her early days as an inexperienced bounty hunter. She’s faced vampires and werewolves, banshees, witches, and soul-eating demons. She’s crossed worlds, channelled gods, and accepted her place as a day-walking demon. She’s lost friends and lovers and family, and an old enemy has unexpectedly become something much more.

But power demands responsibility, and world-changers must always pay a price. Rachel knew that this day would come – and now it is here.

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 . . .

En savoir plus sur l'auteur

De son propre aveu, Kim Harrison fut longtemps un garçon manqué. Elle joue (mal) au billard et (beaucoup mieux) aux dés, et aime regarder des films d'action en mangeant du popcorn et joue de son tambour Ashiko quand personne n'est là pour l'entendre. Plus sérieusement, elle est depuis 2004 l'un des best-sellers de cette nouvelle tendance héritée d'Anne Rice et de Buffy, mélange détonnant de Fantasy, de thriller et d'humour qui cartonne aux Etats-Unis et en Angleterre.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Farewell to Rachel 27 septembre 2014
Par M. Céline TOP 1000 COMMENTATEURS
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
C'est la fin d'une ère pour moi: terminé d'attendre patiemment la suite des histoires de Ms Morgan.

Un tome final que j'ai trouvé riche, violent, difficile, sans répit, mais Rachel est plus qu'un démon, c'est une super héroïne que rien ne peut détruire, on le savait déjà. Après, il est vrai que le dernier tome d'une saga est souvent difficile à mener à bien. Celui_ci n'est donc pas parfait: qq manques, des frustrations, des attentes, des questions qui resteront sans réponses; c'est comme ça.

La fin peut sembler un peu fleur bleue, tant pis, j'ai apprécié, j'ai adoré ! Après tout ce qu'ils ont vécu, je pense qu'ils ont mérité un peu de paix et j'aime bien savoir ce qui arrive.

Merci à Kim Harrison de nous avoir diverti et tenu en haleine pendant ces années, et bonne continuation. Qui sait, peut-être une petit suite dans qq années, au vu du final ;)

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Une fin ratée pour une série formidable 13 septembre 2014
Par Lady Lama TOP 500 COMMENTATEURS VOIX VINE
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
J'adore Kim Harrison et sa série Rachel Morgan, mais j'avoue que j'ai été atterrée par le niveau de ce dernier tome, censé clôturer la série en fanfare. Déjà que l'avant dernier tome était en-deçà... En fait elle aurait dû s'arrêter quand Rachel et Trent discutaient dans la cabane de sorts, pendant qu'Al ronflait en cuvant sa cuite.

Ce tome commence par 15% où Ivy est menacée par d'autres vampires, puis progressivement cela glisse vers une intrigue plus globale mêlant les personnages devenus majeurs depuis quelques tomes, les démons et les elfes. Rachel doit encore sauver les mondes. Trent et Al vont l'épauler. Et voilà. Il n'y a quasi plus de scènes du quotidien, si savoureuses dans la série. L'auteur empile les scènes d'action, les dialogues, en essayant de glisser tous les personnages de la série en même temps. Et elle finit par une scène digne de Disney.

Rien ne fonctionne, il n'y a pas de suspense, plus guère d'impertinence (pourtant Jenks est là ) ni d'humour, je ne frémis pas pour Ivy, le sort d'Al m'indiffere un peu et Rachel m'énerve à penser toutes les 10 pages qu'elle ne mérite pas d'être tombée amoureuse et que cela ne va pas durer. Bref, un tome plus que décevant qui m'a fait perdre mon temps, que j'ai du me forcer à lire et qui ne fait pas honneur à la série.

Le dernier est presque toujours un peu moins intéressant que les précédents. Cela vaut aussi pour The whitch with no name. Je n'aime pas trop les happy end, mais je suis contente que Rachel soit heureuse.

Par VampireNovelFan - Publié sur Amazon.com

New Hollows Day is probably as good as Christmas Day for many of us. Not to mention this one has come much sooner than expected! But if I'm being honest, this is probably my toughest review yet. It's taken me so long to get it together because I just keep drawing a blank. Part of it is because this is the end of my favorite series ever. But I have accepted that this must happen to all good things, or else they could risk not being so good anymore.

Kim Harrison brought this novel back around to be about the vamps. She made good on her promise compared to other recent books where they sat more on the back burner. It appears to be for good reason though because vampires are the key to changing everything. There were some revelations that truly surprised me and the unpredictable twists kept me at the edge of my seat the whole time.

I was happy to see the demons and elves get a healthy dose of focus as well. Over the years I have grown very attached to their story lines and was happy to see they wouldn't have too many loose ends.

Rachel and Trent. Yeah, if you're a fan I don't see why that would stop now! They display great teamwork and definitely turn up the heat as they're settling into their relationship together. It's satisfying to see but still hard to believe it's happened considering the long road they took to find one another. Of course it still isn't easy for them. They have very complicated lives, but their determination to make it work just gives a girl all the feels in the world.

Rachel takes her relationships seriously and her friends and family are as strong as ever. We get the answer to the question of whether she is able to save Ivy's soul. That alone is worth the price of admission if you've stuck it out with this series for as long as I have.

The thing is, I was expecting to have the waterworks ready after finishing this final book. 9 years is the longest I've stuck it out with a series. But I finished it feeling satisfied and believing that the characters would be okay. Kim has done her characters justice and she should pat herself on the back for being able to give them what they deserve. And it truly feels deserved with a very fitting ending. They've worked hard and sacrificed so much.

I enjoyed every page from beginning to end in this last installment. We received a lot of answers and many things were wrapped up, but at the same time it also feels like a new beginning so I still want more! I just don't know what I am going to do without my favorite witch, demon, elf, pixy, and vampire team to look forward to once a year.

And now I'm gonna lay the sap on extra thick. Honestly, reading for me won't be the same again, at least for a while. This is the first series to really introduce me to the adult urban fantasy genre and it's set the bar so high that nothing else can scratch that itch quite like The Hollows can. Everything else fights for second. This is the first series I have followed for so long so it will always carry a special place for me for that reason alone. Of course I'm looking forward to what's next, but it's always hard to say goodbye to history, especially as I've gone through the ups and downs with the characters year after year and made quite a few friends in my life along the way, including Ms. Harrison herself. So goodbye Hollows! Thanks for the ride! Thanks for the memories! Thank you, Kim Harrison! I'll be first in line for your next book!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Where the Witch has no Name 9 septembre 2014
Par T. Edmund - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This series ranks as one of my favourite of the genre, it was with some surprise that the finale came out in the same year as the penultimate - although I suspect Harrison has been planning this throughout the creation of all the earlier books and was ready to get this beast out there.

And the finale does not disappoint. I must confess I had some trepidation, like most 'modern magic' series a lot of mythology and additional mumbo jumbo had been added since the beginning of the series. Unbelievably, Harrison manages to pull together not only the characters but the mythos to make a coherent and epic story.

There are only a couple of wee beefs - the story is heavy on talking rather than action - I guess being the last of the series there is much focus on relationship resolution (also handled brilliantly) rather than snappy action (there is still a good dose)

Also the epilogue is a block of cheese, then again after 13 odd best-selling books and several much loved characters, how else to end?

The scariest thing is it doesn't seem that long ago I picked up the first two books of The Hollows and delighted in a decent alternative to the Anita Blake series (which everyone wishes ended) Harrison it seems has picked the perfect time to exit The Witch, before fans tire and/or she evolves into ridiculousness.

Thanks Kim!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 I loved this series by Kim Harrison 16 septembre 2014
Par V. Lee - Publié sur Amazon.com

SPOILER ALERT SO DON'T READ IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THE BOOK:
I loved this series by Kim Harrison, but I didn't like the last book in this series. I felt nothing was wrapped up for me, I was left with a lot of questions of why didn't she talk about what happened to...The whole time I read this series the books kept talking about Al's Butterfly Chrysalis which I thought there was a deeper meaning to what the chrysalis was, I thought maybe it was Al's dead wife's soul? That maybe Rachel was going to find a way to bring her back to life so Al wouldn't have to be alone anymore. But nope the chrysalis meant nothing even though she alluded to it multiple times thru out the series. That didn't happen. Then she never said anything about Jinx and Belle. She alluded that Jinx and Belle were getting closer, I thought maybe a romantic relationship. That didn't happen. There definitely wasn't enough SEX in this series, there sure was a lot of snuggling,kissing and wanting to have sex, but I kept feeling like I was reading a young adult series because they would never 'get it on' much. I hated that Al in the end was an actor/director. WHAT? really? The Goddess was too easy to kill/change. She never talked about what happened to the ever after once Rachael did recreate it. Did she make the ever after a beautiful place or was it still a waste land with the stink of burnt amber? I wanted the demons to find females again so they could be happy, she never finished that story line. She didn't say anything about Bis in the end either. I know you can't please every reader and there's always going to be that one person who complains, I guess that's me. I just wanted more closure.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 I truly hate to say this but... 14 septembre 2014

SPOILERS. SPOILERS. SPOILERS. SPOILERS. I had a lot of trouble finishing this last one. I have loved and cherished every bloody book of this series and I hated this ending. Not the fact that Trent and Rachel finally became happy. None of that, but how they got there... As per usual Ms Harrison is an amazing writer and I have no issues with language or dialogue in itself but what happened to all those characters? Rachel did nothing but whine throughout the book, how undeserving she was, how everything was her fault and how all she wanted was for Ivy to be happy. Trent became this star-crossed lover, not ever opposing Rachel, being super supportive. I missed their quarrels, their arguments, everything that made them different!

A lot of what happened didn't make sense to me... I mean did I miss things? Where does Ellasbeth fit in? What happened to the evil elves? Re-instating Magic and one vampire holding the soul of an undead is it? the answer to it all? How and why did Newt become? There are so many things I didn't understand. Before everything was logical and comprehensively explained.

I hate saying these things but I can't well pretend I liked it. I mean I spent FIVE days trying to finish it... I have to say my all over feel is that every single character was FORCED to a happy ending and nothing just seemed to follow its course. Things needed to change drastically and drastic is exactly what happened.

I would have preferred two installments instead of one, hoping that maybe things would have felt more logical. I don't begrudge them their happy ending, I just find it too convenient.

Everyone is a critic and I know that people will think i'm crazy... but it's the impression that was left in my hind brain. I'm going to miss all of them...

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Nice wrap-up but too much whining - 3.5 stars 15 septembre 2014
Par C. Thilmany - Publié sur Amazon.com

The focus is on the vampires and Rachel fulfilling the promise she’d made near the beginning of the series, to find a way to return a vampire’s soul. And Cormel, the vampire who took charge at the Turn is now forcing the issue. But no one quite understands the consequences.

At the same time, Landon, problem elf from the last book, has a plan to not only kill off the vampires, but the demons as well so the elves can once again rule. Again, the overall consequences to his plan are a little bigger than he anticipated.

More background information on all three species with the biggest threat to Rachel and her friends coming from Cormel.

Plenty of action and some unexpected twists as Rachel does her best to provide balance and save everyone. And at her side is Trent throughout. As usual, the answers to how to solve impossible scenarios aren’t something you’d expect.

I love seeing how much Trent has changed, partly as we’ve gotten to know him and partly due to his wanting to be a better person because of Rachel. He’s happier than he’s ever been which makes it somewhat annoying that in Rachel’s inner dialogue she keeps feeling guilty because he’s lost business, money and political strength since she’s been in his life. This is repetitious throughout the book.

Ivy’s relationship with Nina is also an important aspect of the story. Unfortunately, it’s difficult to like Nina for most of it. But glad Ivy found someone to love.

The last chapter jumps twenty-five years, so we do get somewhat of a recap on how things panned out. But we didn’t get the one thing I’d been hoping to read about and that is witches finding out the truth about their origins. We don’t know if that ever came out in Rachel’s world.

Like the last book, this took me days to get through which is very unusual for me. I like how things got resolved, the action and Trent and Rachel’s relationship. But it’s definitely one of the books in the series that I enjoyed the least.
