“Arguably Very Best Paranormal Series Ever Written” Declares Barnes & Noble Book Blogger

Paul Goat Allen, the influential book blogger for Barnes & Noble, recently listed the twenty best paranormal fantasies of the past decade, and at the very top of the list he placed For a Few Demons More, the fifth novel in Kim Harrison’s Hollows urban fantasy series. What’s more, he declared the series itself , represented by Richard Curtis Associates, “arguably the best paranormal fantasy series ever written.” Below is his full quote. The runners-up include Charlaine Harris and Laurell K. Hamilton.

#1. For a Few Demons More, by Kim Harrison (2007)
The fifth installment of Harrison’s phenomenally popular Hollows saga featuring endearing gray witch Rachel Morgan and company, this novel was the first hardcover release in the series and, at least for me, heralded its ascension to elite series status. With only two novels to go until the series concludes, there is no doubt in my mind that the Hollows saga will go down as arguably the very best paranormal fantasy series ever written.

    I have to say that I completely agree with this. Kim Harrison has a interesting way of writing about the paranormal that many authors that have been around for a while have yet to accomplish. I’ve read the series from the start and have no complaints, unlike other authors who I do like but take turns for their characters that seem more unbelievable than the paranormal could ever be. Love this lady and hope she keeps it up.

    I completely agree. Her and Kelley Armstrong’s series are the only two paranormal fantasy that I still read. Laurell K Hamilton’s got repetitive and when into just porn. Sherrilyn Kenyon’s seems to be repeating plots, same with the Carpathian series.

    The Rachel Morgan series is just as amazing from the last book to the first book, whether it’s audio or written.

    I love her books. I read through them so fast then I spend time waiting for the new book!!!!!

    Totally agree with Narmowen’s comment above. I read both Hamilton and Harrison at the same time. I really liked Hamilton’s earlier books, but agree with the repetition and porn comment. Just wish that Rachel would have been able to date Trent. Oh, well.

    Kim is phenomenal. I have been a longtime fan of all things paranormal & have read most every paranormal writer there is & own most of them. I was hooked on Kim from the beginning. I introduced her to my daughter, who is also Rachel, as well as my sister. They were hooked! The three of us had the great honor of meeting her in Asheville, North Carolina on 2/4/2013 & got books signed & pictures with her. It was amazing!! She is so down-to-earth & I felt like I was meeting an old friend. And in a way, I guess I was! And Guy is awesome too! Just hate that it is coming to an end soon…. How will there be life after ‘The Hollows’??

    My comments will match the others. I have also read all of the stores mentioned about and Kim is my favorite. Her story is not dragging, forced, unbelievable and dull. She knows how to conclude a book in a way that’s both satisfying but still leaves you wanting more. She doesn’t keep the same format with a ‘happy ending’. The only other author I can think of that does this is the Night huntress series by Jeaniene Frost. Kim’s most recent book was the best yet.
