Beginning: Carpenter Middle: Marine then Firefighter Latter part: IT Admin; Books have always provided fuel for my imagination to feed on.
Loved it, far better than book one and very good story telling. Cant wait for three.
I love books! Listening or reading! Vampires and Werewolves and Fey, oh my!
I think so. I came to the series late so I read the first 5 or 6 books really fast, but I LOVE listening to the series. I was so eager to get through each book I didn't stop to give the characters any vocal personality. This audiobook, Marguerite Gavin, does GREAT with the voices. The different voices give the characters more depth.
I love Rachel, Ivy, and Jenks all for different reasons. I love Rachel because she's such a mess. I love Ivy because she wants more for herself and tries hard not to hurt (or kill) the ones she loves. Jenks... ah, Jenks. He is smart mouthed and sarcastic. Poor Jenks, Rachel and Ivy will drive him nuts.
Jenks. I laughed at Jenks when I read the book, but sometimes I laugh so hard my eyes water when Marguerite Gavin gives Jenks the annoyed, frustrated tones that she does.
Yes, I did on more than on occasion listen way longer than I should have and woke up groggy and very grumpy the next morning... what made it better? More Good, Bad and Undead!!
Rachel deals with her boyfriend and his demon summoning, Witches getting killed one right after the other, and learns something very interesting (and important) about herself and her late father.
This is a great combination of compelling story paired with excellent narration. The result is an audio book that is hard to set aside.
The intrigue and action were great, but I really like how Kim Harrison further develops her cast of characters and the world in which they live.
Definitely Jenks. I love her characterization of the pixie.
I think there is just a general vibe of how Rachel deals with becoming and unwilling and unsung hero. She is leading a hard knock life, but continues to rise to the challenge.
Yes I would.
Kim is a good entertainer, the characters were just to hard to follow
I thought the storyline was good and a bit unpredictable which is always a good thing. It doesn't impact the story or my rating for the performance especially because it was a easy mistake to make but the narrator mistakenly said "FBI" instead of "FIB" in the quote from Quinn during the fight. Trent seems could be a descent person however, since Rachel witnessed him actually killing keeps you from wondering if he wasn't misjudged.

This second book in the Rachel Morgan series takes us deeper into the central characters (Rachel and Ivy) of the series. The subcast including Jenks and "Al" the demon are fairly static, but they do remain constant and vital.
This series does an excellent job of creating an Alt-reality story with depth that feels very real. This could very well be the world we live in.
Rachel is searching for the "Witch murders" and eventually finds herself having to choose to work with individuals that she dislikes or outright hates. There is a lot here to enjoy and I think you will find yourself hooked on the series by the end of this installment.
The narration is good, but Ms. Gavin does tend to make all of her males characters sound a bit like Napolean Dynamite.
I'm Eric's mom giving this review and 67 yrs old. I normally read shifter or romance books, This is the first witch book or audio I have listened to. I am hooked and ready for the third in this series. definely worth the money.
Reader of things.
The series just gets better, so I wouldn't change anything
I've read them all and crave more
Smooth, captivating, creative
Read more Kim Harrison
As a person from Cincinnati, I enjoy the attention Harrison takes to local detail
I love the series! This book was mostly about the relationship between Rachel and Ivy. It was nice to see a softer side of Ivy and still get all of the humor (Jenks) and action from the book.
The mystery was kicked up a level and I appreciate the partnership starting between Rachel and Trent. And for some reason I like that Quen is showing up more in the series.
