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!

    Story
    "I almost gave up...."

    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.

    Story
    "So-so"

    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.

    "It was OK"

    The story took a while to get moving and I go annoyed with the narrator. It didn't keep me interested enough to move to book two.

    Story
    "Stephanie Plum meets Harry Dresden"
    What made the experience of listening to Dead Witch Walking the most enjoyable?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    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!


    What does Marguerite Gavin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrator has a very enjoyable tone to her voice.

    Story
    "I love this series!"
    Would you listen to Dead Witch Walking again? Why?

    I don't listen to books twice but if I did this one would qualify.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It's a fun book with some funny moments. I like the strong women in it. The pixies are very fun too!


    Any additional comments?

    I like the fact that no extreme bad language is used. I'd call it PG 13. I like that.

    Story
    "Just okay"
    Would you try another book from Kim Harrison and/or Marguerite Gavin?

    I actually wished I had listened to this one before buying three more. I really could not even finish this one.


    What was most disappointing about Kim Harrison’s story?

    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.


    How could the performance have been better?

    She did the main character good but all the other voices were unbelievable and not unique enough.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Dead Witch Walking?

    It is hard to say. None of the scenes captured my interest.


    Any additional comments?

    I couldn't even finish it.

    "great"
    If you could sum up Dead Witch Walking in three words, what would they be?

    Action suspense humor


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes. You always want to know what happens next.


    What about Marguerite Gavin’s performance did you like?

    Her range in character voices is great. It's easy to tell which character is speaking.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I'm always laughing at Janx.

    "Fast paced, sexy and unique."

    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.

    "Shrug"

    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


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dead Witch Walking?

    Pixie Jinks swearing is always a hoot

    Marguerite Gavin is the best reader out there. I love all her portrayals, especially the Demon Algaliarept


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. I like to luxuriate in the stories as I have read them all.


    Any additional comments?

    Kim Harrison is a great story teller and I only wish she could write more stories.
