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)
I don't listen to books twice but if I did this one would qualify.
It's a fun book with some funny moments. I like the strong women in it. The pixies are very fun too!
I like the fact that no extreme bad language is used. I'd call it PG 13. I like that.
I actually wished I had listened to this one before buying three more. I really could not even finish this one.
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.
She did the main character good but all the other voices were unbelievable and not unique enough.
It is hard to say. None of the scenes captured my interest.
I couldn't even finish it.
Action suspense humor
Yes. You always want to know what happens next.
Her range in character voices is great. It's easy to tell which character is speaking.
I'm always laughing at Janx.
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.
