On the run with a contract on her head, Rachel reluctantly teams up with Ivy, Inderland's best runner...and a living vampire. But this witch is way out of her league, and to clear her name, Rachel must evade shape-changing assassins, outwit a powerful businessman/crimelord, and survive a vicious underground fight-to-the-death...not to mention her own roommate!
Fun, sassy, filled with action, humor, and romance, Dead Witch Walking is the perfect summer listen for anyone who likes vampires, paranormal fantasy, romance, or just a great beach book.
And hear more from the Rachel Morgan series!

"Fast-paced and loads of fun - the perfect read when you just want to get away from things for a bit." (Fantasy & Science Fiction)
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.
Audible Addict. I listen to 2-3 books a week, depending on my schedule. I've been a member since 2008 and feel like I have a personal relationship with my I-Pod! I'm an ecclectic reader but have been hooked on "romance" (I hate that term) and paranormal books lately.
Purchased the first 2 books of series when they were on sale. This story never really grabbed me. It must improve with the next book but I'm not sure when I'll listen to it. Love Marguerite Gavin as the narrator in the Kitty Norville Series.
Action, Humor, Romantic longing
Pixie Jinks swearing is always a hoot
Marguerite Gavin is the best reader out there. I love all her portrayals, especially the Demon Algaliarept
No. I like to luxuriate in the stories as I have read them all.
Kim Harrison is a great story teller and I only wish she could write more stories.
