I am very sad that this is the penultimate Hollows Novel. Whilst I think it's good that a series not keep on indefinitely till it starts rehashing the same old story lines, I will be sad to lose my Hollow's friends. All the characters have grown and revealed new depths over the years, but none more so than Rachael. She is a loveable heroine, and her ability to unit people of different "races" in her family and community is a testament to what a community might look like if we accepted each person on their merits. I found I was delighted by the deepening relationship with Trent, and whilst he has lost his need to conform and has discovered what really matters, I hope he keeps the edge that made his banter with Rachael so enjoyable. Jenks, as always, is a joy and a delight. Harrison is not afraid of losses, and they occur in this book too. But they feel very right. And I await the last book with some trepidation. Just as they find calm waters, what will disrupt Rachael and her friends?
As always with this series, the relationships between characters is so well done, they grow and change, as in real life and that keeps things interesting. Also, thank you Kim, for Not adding the full on sex that seems so prevalent in other paranormal books these days.
I enjoy that this series is about friendship, love, loyalty, yes - there are some sensual moments and thats great. Just very glad it hasn't gone to soft porn like so many other writers these days.
