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)
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.
If you like action, this is the book for you. Non-stop! Just when I thought I had the book figured out, it took a turn, and after that turn was a twist, and so on. In the beginning, I got a little lost in all the information but by the second chapter I was in the know.
This is a great simple read with supernatural characters. I like the different twists this book takes from the usual, but it took a while to get use to the narrator. I can usually get past that, but I am crossing my fingers she doesn't read the whole series!
I really like Vamp/Were stories (Dresden, Mercy Thompson, Jane Yellowrock, etc.). This was a fun spin on the genre; has pixies thrown in (sort of like the Artimis Fowl series). A fun story staging the relationships of witches, vamps, etc. There are 2 competing national policing agencies ruling the non-human crowd. Who will ultimately bring down the bad guy? I love the humor, this is mostly a light-hearted adventure. Not as good as the series mentioned in parentheses, but was still worth my listening time. I am now off to listen to book 2.
When I got this book, I wasn't expecting much. I was surprised and delighted to find my gamble had paid off this time. The story was fun and the narrator was good. I loved the pixies and how the writer made them kick-butt awesome fighters. I also liked the interesting take on vampires and all the explanations for why they come off as sex-crazed-jerks so much of the time. I have to say, I did like the secondary characters more than the main character, but I didn't dislike her (most of the time anyway). I'll definitely be giving the next book in the series a try.
I am a cardiac nurse, I like listening to audible books while I am accomplishing other tasks.
Funny, Endearing, Survivor
All the characters represent the different parts of a whole person: Ivy- logical, planner, prepared. Rachel: fly by the seat of your pants, optimistic, fearless. Jenks- in the right place at the right time, devoted, with a sense of humor & loyal.
The three of them manage an unlikely friendship to fight for those things they believe in, they are able to beat the forces holding them back.
Marguerite Gavin is one of my favorite audible voices. She has amazing timing, comedic genius and multiple voices to help keep the characters straight.
This book was a little long for one sitting. I finished the book in about 2 days, while maintaining a full time work schedule.
Kim Harrison paints a clear picture of the places, the people and the events that shaped Rachel Morgan's world. You will not be left with pressing questions in order to understand the story line. This is a great first book in a series.
I just couldn't do it dont know if it was the narration or just the writing
Perfectly light and easy to listen to.
Great story, some....."breath-catching" moments and a lot of humor. :-)
