Rachel Morgan's come a long way from the clutzy runner of Dead Witch Walking. She's faced vampires and werewolves, banshees, witches, and soul-eating demons. She's crossed worlds, channeled gods, and accepted her place as a day-walking demon. She's lost friends and lovers and family, and an old enemy has become something much more.

But power demands responsibility, and world-changers must always pay a price. That time is now.

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.

This was such a bittersweet book. I waffled between excitement at the release and sadness that the story was ending. I wanted to see how the stories of each of characters came to an end and that everyone got an HEA.

One of the biggest arcs throughout the series was helping Ivy keep her soul. That, and that crazy Ellasbeth character that needed out of the way. She’s always driven me crazy. I couldn’t believe that after all this time, she still played a role in Trent’s life. I was disappointed that Rachel couldn’t get past thinking she was doing the right thing for the elves by not fully committing to Trent know that he would eventually have to go back and make a life with that wench. She knew she wanted Trent, it drove me crazy that she would just sit back and let that happen instead of going for what she wanted. Maybe that was just my romantic side for this series because I have always wanted Rachel and Trent to be together.

The Witch With No Name was a crazy, mad rush of trying to keep the world from falling apart. Everyone wanted to be the race that came out on top, and after the elves playing such a small part in the series (with the exception of Trent) their goals and determination kind of shocked me. I just didn’t see them as such a ruthless species. But just as I didn’t see the elves in that dominating, ruthless role, I also didn’t anticipate the role the demons took. Al, wow, Al. Loved him in this book!

The whole solution to the vampires keeping their souls was really original, and I would have never guessed that it would have played out the way it did.

The ending jumps ahead a little, but satisfied my need for closure with the characters. Al, totally blows me away! I am going to miss Rachel, Ivy and Jenks as well as all the other big characters in this series. I think I need a hug now.
