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!

    My wife says she can read me like an open book. Though she regrets not being able to shut me up the same way. :)

    Story
    "It keeps getting ready to go. Narrator saves it."

    All told, I'll probably give this series another crack. I actually thought the narrator, Marguerite Gavin, saved this story for me. Her inflections were right-on with just the right pacing that kept the story moving past repetitive scenes.

    I found myself getting frustrated in some scenes where the author left me with a sense that her story was otherwise "getting ready to get ready to really takeoff... anytime now." Only to then have the main character do some other dumb thing that lands her in another predicament that just felt like it was a bit like the "other" predicament she landed herself in during the last scene -- which, unfortunately, seemed very similar to the "current scene."

    But, while a few scenes felt a bit like "Groundhog day," a saving grace of the writing was the dialog. There was a lot of dialog between the characters--which I like in stories. The characters were colorful and quirky; they were likable -- even the bad ones.

    I'll be downloading #2 in the series. But whether I hang on beyond that will depend on how the author evolves the main character; she has a lot of growing up to do and lots more skills to develop if she's going to continue holding my interest beyond book 2.

    Overall: It's worth a credit if you like this genre.

    Story
    "The First in a Great series"
    What did you like best about this story?

    The interaction's between the main characters and no matter how bad everything got they stuck together in an amusing way.


    Any additional comments?

    The story is great as it tells the story of a witch who is trying to stay alive a vampire and a pixie that befriend her. The three live together in a church and you can see the friendships develop. The best part is the fact that Ivy (vampire) Rachael (witch) live and work together but Rachael is scarred to death of ivy. It's an interesting story with a lot of mixed emotions. It's a good supernatural thriller with two main characters that have a lot of emotional baggage. I recommend this story and suggest that you listen or read them in order, just like the Bones and Cat books.

    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.
