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!

    "Dead Witch Walking.... I tried. I really tried"
    What disappointed you about Dead Witch Walking?

    I couldn't get beyond the first few chapters. I just didn't care for the writing style or the narration. I really tried to like it.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I don't know... but I had the books in this series in my wish list. I will have to remove them.


    What didn’t you like about Marguerite Gavin’s performance?

    I thought her voice sounded too old for the part.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Dead Witch Walking?

    I couldn't get through much of the book, so I couldn't say.


    Any additional comments?

    It seemed like this would have been something I would have enjoyed. I like other books in this type of genre, but the writing style and the performance were grating. I just couldn't listen beyond the first couple of chapters.

    "So fun!"

    This is my first audiobook from Audible and my first foray into "urban fantasy." Now I'm hooked! I loved how complex the lives of these characters are, and how sanitized. The vampire, Ivy, is truly dangerous because vampires ARE dangerous, not pouting over-aged teens who whine about their existence or promote some weird anti-woman agenda. Our anti-hero is brave and impulsive and prone to make mistakes. But she also learns from her mistakes and listens to what the folks around her say. And the resident pixie is a brand new archetype to me. I'm looking forward to following the adventures of this family by choice.

    "Series keeps getting better and better"

    I am now listening to the 11th book in this series and have enjoyed it very much. Based on other reviews, I did skip the 6th book (The Outlaw Demon Wails) and read it instead of listening. I can't imagine anyone other than Marguerite Gavin narrating the books. Her voices for Rachel, Ivy, Jenks and all the characters are perfect.

    "Why is this such a famous series???"

    Ok, I got sucked into this book, thinking I could really get into a good series.
    This book and series has had lots of acclaim- how could I go wrong?
    For the first third of the book, absolutely nothing happens.
    Just kept plugging along, thinking it would change. How could so many people love this book, right?
    Then by the time something did happen, I was totally uninvested with the characters, and I thought "Who cares?"
    How this series has found so much fame is really beyond me. I found it to drag, and I also found it poorly written. Perhaps it gets better with the other books, but I won't be wasting me time, or my credit to find out.

    "Confusing start, but great story"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The beginning was hard to follow for a first book, for me anyway. It did get easier after a couple of chapters.


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

    Jinx was great though the whole book, Love his personality and loyalty and good heart.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Maybe don't know that a movie could do it justice

    "Great story but unlikable heroine."
    What made the experience of listening to Dead Witch Walking the most enjoyable?

    The story and the humor were good. The narrator was a bit rushed at times and the voices tended to blend together too much.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't like Rachel. I find her to be one of the most selfish characters I've ever "met". She has no self awareness and doesn't think about the consequences of her actions. I root for her only so Jinx and Ivy don't suffer. I really like the stories though, so I overlook her blatantly self-destructive behavior, the adrenaline flowing in and out of her body like the tides and the constant affirmations of "I'm a White Witch". I love series with strong female lead characters like Eve Dallas or Anita Blake so it's refreshing to have a series with a main character who can't do it all.

    Don't get me wrong. I think the series is original and entertaining. When listening it's easier to hear how often her adrenaline gives her headaches.

    I will continue listening to the series.

    My tastes vary. I like PNR and some HR. I have been known to like YA and NA just as well as some naughty bodice rippers and other romance books.

    "New series to become engrossed in!!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Dead Witch Walking to be better than the print version?

    I really enjoy audio books and the story and narrator really have to match. The narrator did a great job of the characters.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Not really --- but it was very entertaining.


    What about Marguerite Gavin’s performance did you like?

    I liked her range in characters. You definitely knew who was talking depending on her voice.


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

    No --- but it was enjoyable.

    "Fun Fun Fun"

    OK - I've found a new series and I hope all the rest are as entertaining as Book 1. If you are looking for a deep, heart wrenching story, don't look here. This book is funny, entertaining, easy listening. I really enjoyed the personalities of the characters and had to purchase and download Book 2 as soon as Book 1 was over. These books are right up my alley and satisfy my audibook entertainment needs. Kim Harrison doesn't involve too many characters to keep track of, especially while driving, and I didn't notice any lag time in the storyline at all. The narrator did a spectacular job also. Thanks!
