This story is engaging. I like the characters that Ms Harrison has created very much and I really like how she has thrust all the witches, vampires, pixies, etc. into relatively present day Cinncinnatti. The society she has constructed for them is interesting as are the interactions of these species with each other and their human counterparts. This is a great escapist reading just for the fun of it. The narrator is well suited to the story.
I started listening and with in the first hour I wasn't sure I'd be able to finish but all of a sudden it had my attention and I ended up enjoying the story. I will keep going with the series until it lets me down... if it lets me down. I would give it a shot if you like this genre. It's not as heavy and serious as some stories.
Has more improbable escapades and escapes from danger than your average minx. Which creature, as it happens, has a role in the story. If Audible offers it again really cheaply, and you really like werewolf stories, try it.
I did quite like the idea of the heroine living in a church.
From the description, I expected a cross between Stephanie Plum and Harry Dresden. Fans of both of these fictional characters should really like this series.
Rachel is still finding her way in her new found freedom and learns very quickly what not to do. Sadly, she has a lot to learn yet!
The narrator has a very enjoyable tone to her voice.
I don't listen to books twice but if I did this one would qualify.
It's a fun book with some funny moments. I like the strong women in it. The pixies are very fun too!
I like the fact that no extreme bad language is used. I'd call it PG 13. I like that.
I actually wished I had listened to this one before buying three more. I really could not even finish this one.
With some books I can not stop listening. I find things to do so I can continue listening. I tried and it could not keep me interested at all. I didn't even care what was going to happen next.
She did the main character good but all the other voices were unbelievable and not unique enough.
It is hard to say. None of the scenes captured my interest.
I couldn't even finish it.
Action suspense humor
Yes. You always want to know what happens next.
Her range in character voices is great. It's easy to tell which character is speaking.
I'm always laughing at Janx.
Forget everything you know about witches, vampires and for that matter reality. Dead Witch Walking turns the crime novel into something brand new. I loved the edginess of the book coupled with the power and venerability of the main character. Very entertaining indeed.
A light weight, easy listen that ultimately left me unsatisfied. Going in I understood this was the beginning of a series. I listen to a lot of those. I get that you're left with teasers so you'll want to continue with the series. Usually, however, many of the initial mysteries or conflicts from the beginning of the book are somewhat resolved with new issues cropping up near the end so that you'll be enticed to continue the next book. This one didn't really resolve those early questions and didn't really introduce new mysteries near the end either. Consequently, it feels a little incomplete, and I feel a little ripped off. I'm admittedly curious about some of those unresolved issues, but not enough to get strung along lackadaisically. It starts to feel a little soap opera-ish when books do that. As for the narrator, she was fine. She did a solid, middle-of-the-road job. I wouldn't mind listening to her again. The bottom line: If you're looking for a series that will keep you occupied for a long time but won't be too mentally absorbing, this book promises a series that will definitely fit the bill. If you want high drama and a definite conclusion, keep moving.
