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 was hesitant on starting this book mainly cause I had never read any of her books, but I am hooked on her Hallow series. This book got me hooked.

    "Was ok, might listen to it again next year"

    I wasn't too impressed with it even though I listened to the end. Could of been better. It just didn't grab me like the rest of the books I have.

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

    Engaging, funny, suspenseful!


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

    When Rachel was caught as a mink in Trents office.


    Have you listened to any of Marguerite Gavin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first time hearing her, she is really good at the multiple characters and keeping the listener interested.

    Story
    "Definitely an interesting twist on an old theme"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dead Witch Walking to be better than the print version?

    This is one of those series that appears to be more interesting to listen to rather than read.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The alternative universe the author has created in this series is just different enough from other series to make the reader want to learn more.


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

    This book was not a "page turner" where you had to finish it in one sitting, but it was entertaining.

    "The reading is amazing."

    The book doesn't treat you like you an idiot but throws some new terminology at you and a couple details and your brain does the rest. It's very imaginative and hysterical. I laughed a lot. Out loud. But I have to give props to the reader! I want her as my best friend! I know why this book series's is one of the top "wish listed" it's awesome. Expensive but worth it.

    Story
    "Very Disappointing. Boring with little suspense."
    What did you like best about Dead Witch Walking? What did you like least?

    I liked the character Rachel. She was a tough girl with a good personality. The book just was not exciting. In fact I would say boring. Not much suspense. It was like a VERY long episode of law and order with Vampires, witches, demons and annoying pixies.


    Has Dead Witch Walking turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. Thank goodness. I started some books by Jeaniene Frost and they are just what I expect from this genre. Suspense, sinister characters, laughs, and love. This book seemed geared for teens. ( Maybe it is I don't know).


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Marguerite Gavin?

    Yes she does an amazing job.


    Was Dead Witch Walking worth the listening time?

    no.


    Any additional comments?

    I was hoping to get into another series but unless someone can convince me that the books get better.. I'm done. Sorry but I just was not entertained.

    "this is a great book"
    Would you listen to Dead Witch Walking again? Why?

    Yes, I love this series!


    What other book might you compare Dead Witch Walking to and why?

    I don't know about a particular book, but The Hollows series reminds me of the Dresden Files meets Anita Blake but better.


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

    She does a good job portraying all the characters.


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

    Not one thing in particular in this book. All I know is I have greatly enjoyed this series and recommend it to everyone I know.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait for the next book in the series!

    "Interesting New Paranormal Story!"

    This futuristic story centers around a witch named Rachel Morgan and it is set in time after a genetically engineered virus wipes out a good chunk of the human population. After the virus, the paranormal community decided to come out of hiding and make itself known to the rest of the world. The rest of the world wasn’t quite ready for the big reveal so the two communities still keep themselves mostly separate.

    Rachel works as a type of cop for an organization called IS. The IS doesn’t treat her very well so she decides she wants to quit and work on her own. A little pixie named Jenks and her vampire friend Ivy also want to quit the IS and work with Morgan. The IS can’t have these renegade types out there, so they put a contract out on Rachel. Now Rachel and her two friends must hide from hit men while they try to figure out a bust that will be big enough for them to get out from under the contract.

    I really enjoyed this story. Kim Harrison has created a whole new world for us to explore and enjoy. There was a whole different take on vampires and witches that I found a bit confusing at first. That was due to my preconceived notions about the paranormal traits of vampires and witches, not because of the writing. So flush your brain of all other vampire and witch stories and start fresh.

    I enjoyed that there was a mystery surrounding Trent that was never actually divulged. Normally that would tick me off, but with all the rest of the action and suspense, it didn’t. There was a whole lot going on in this book and it will be one that I will probably go back and listen to again.

    This was the first book in a series and I will definitely go on to the next.

    The Narration Review
    I think Marguerite Gavin did a great job on the narration. I liked that she would increase the tempo just a bit for when she was talking for Jenks and that she gave him a good I-got-attitude voice. All the voices were clearly distinguishable so I never had to wonder who was speaking.
