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!

    "Liked the book, will READ the rest of the series"

    I don't think the narrator was a bad one, but it's been a while since I listened to this. What I remember is the Jenks voice was an interesting choice and I could definitely identify with the attitude of the main character Rachel Morgan. But I could NOT get past Ivy the vampire and her "sultry" voice. It was as though Marguerite Gavin suddenly became six years old and was told to depict a low, husky voice. She sounded like Jim Carrey as Vera (the bodybuilding chick) on In Living Color, if that helps. "Raaachellll." God, that drove me absolutely nuts! When a person reads a book, they attach their own interpretations of how people sound when they read dialogue. With audio books, it's obviously interpreted for you. This is the one book I've listened to where I couldn't suspend reality and eventually get used to the reading flaws (men going shrill for the women's parts and bad blanket accents). I am actually looking forward to reading the print and putting my own inner voices to work (and Rachel Morgan will sound probably just like M. Gavin's depiction). Hopefully I won't be haunted by "Raaaachellll" the whole time.

    I love Urban Fantasy, Paranormal romance and dystopian novels. I almost always have either a book in my hands, or an audiobook in my ear!

    "Anything by kim Harrison is incredible"

    I loved this book, and the entire series! the character development throughout the series is wonderful. I feel like the characters are my good friends. I got lost in Rachel's world durring my own illness, and I am grateful to have writers like Kim Harrison to make me forget real life and escape, if only for a little while!

    "This Book was not what I expected or deserved."

    I would rather hear about Ivy than what's her name? See can't even remember it. Some bright spots but few and far between. Not my cup of tea.

    "Great characters"

    Though the description made book sound rediculous, I downloaded it anyway because of a recommendation from a friend. Somehow it all just works. I really enjoyed the narrator. She made the other character voices different but not distracting. The book has humor, exitement and intrigue. I have now listened to the whole series and can't wait for book 9.

    "The WORST book I've ever tried to listen to"

    This book was such a steaming pile of garbage. I absolutely hated it. The reader is incredibly annoying, the main character is a moron, and the plot makes absolutley no sense. I turned it off 2 hours in and wish I could get my money back. I would rather jab a pen in my ear than have to listen to another minute. It was all just a bunch of nonsense that wasn't even fun or compelling in any way shape or form. There aren't enough words to describe how crappy this book was.

    "Could do with a better narration."

    The book is ok (not great, but ok). The narration is a bit low end. Gavin has the ability to read fine, but her character voices are terrible verging on annoying.

    I also was annoyed that the author didn't bother to look up what order mink are in. Hint: It's not rodentia. Mink (and weasels) are in the order Carnivora.

    "A Fun Listen!"

    This book was just fun to listen to and I'm looking forward to hearing the rest in the series The main character is a bit dim witted at times but hey, who isn't. Though the reviews were mixed I decided to give it a shot and as long you are just looking for something entertaining to listen to in the car on the way to work this is for you.

    "Changing my initial review"

    The first time I listened I couldn't get into this one, though Marguetite Gavin went a little fast with the reading and didn't catch me. Gave it another try and now I'm seven books in. I have to change my first thoughts on that book. I like the characters, especially Jenk. Racheal, who is one whiney, every complaining little witch who runs towards and falls backwards into trouble makes you want to hug her and smack her at the same time. Ivy, the vampire with a chip on her shoulders and pain on her soul is as endearing as every single friend with issues you can remember having but loving, and Jenk, the tiny voice of reason who came give Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer a run for his money when it comes to biting truths wrapped in snark. This is an excellent piece of fiction and hope the author has lots of stories to come.
