Publisher's Summary

Rachel Morgan is a runner with the Inderland Runner Services, apprehending law-breakers throughout Cincinnati. She's also a witch, one of the many Inderlanders who revealed themselves after a genetically engineered virus wiped out 50 percent of humanity. Witches, warlocks, vampires, werewolves: the creatures of dreams and nightmares have lived beside humans for centuries, hiding their powers. But now they've stopped hiding, and nothing will be the same.

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!

    Any additional comments?

    I'm now addicted to this series. It's one of those things you don't want to stop listening to. The different voices for the characters is great. I love Jynx. The hyper quick talk is funny. I can't wait to read the next one! If you like fiction, supernatural and suspense/mystery this is for you!

    "A fair start"
    What did you love best about Dead Witch Walking?

    I enjoy these pulp fiction wizard and witch series in alternate magical universes. As a hard core Dresden fan this series seems to be developing as such although it may be too derivative.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The main character seems very non heroic, impulsive and not int eh good way.


    Which character – as performed by Marguerite Gavin – was your favorite?

    Ivy


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The rat fights were good


    Any additional comments?

    I am hoping the author finds here own voice for the world and it does not continue to be derived fromt eh Dresden universe.

    "Series has potential"
    What did you love best about Dead Witch Walking?

    I liked the main character and the premise of the story- how magic became a part of the world. Interesting concept.


    Any additional comments?

    The only thing this book lacks, which i have found in others of the same genre, is a strong bond between the characters. The main character has a roommate, and their interactions are awkward, to say the least. I think there is some missed potential there that i hope is corrected in future novels in this series.

    "Trust me, it gets better!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    At first, this book was horrible! The story was all over the map as the author tried to give context and the back story. And I really struggled with the narrator, she isn't great. About 1/3 of the way through the story, it became interesting and I was sitting in my driveway every night listening an extra few minutes. The author could have disregarded an event or two near the end of the reading, it seemed that she was trying to slam an extra few bits of action that were really unnecessary. I hear that the series is good and when Kim Harrison writing well, her story flows and is enjoyable. I am going to pick up the next in the series and see how it goes.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I have no idea who would enjoy this book especially if one likes the vampire/werewolf/witch kind of story - it's not very intelligent. Even the cliches are boring.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Kim Harrison again?

    No.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The performance is terrible. The reader has no sense that she's being listened to by an audience. Very little animation in the voice and that makes it difficult to pay attention. In a word, monotonous.

    I loved reading about King Arthur and Knights of the round table when I was a wee lad. Now I am older and love Game of Thrones!

    "Spellbinding- M. Gavin grabs and hooks you!"
    Where does Dead Witch Walking rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I am not saying first, there might be a better one, but its a tie with about 4 books. I had read a review, and they were spot on... M Gavin does an incredible job narrating the charactors, and making you feel like your in the story. Pure imagination.A few lagging parts, but the narration kept me joyful when I played it and listened to a few chapters, just as keenly as I had started it... all the way thru.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It makes you aware there will be more novels, and there are. I want to get the next three asap!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The tomatoes that changed the future.
