Publisher's Summary

Rachel Morgan is back! Best-selling author Kim Harrison returns with a new supernatural adventure that fans of Laurell K. Hamilton and Charlaine Harris won't want to miss.

Some days, you just can't win. Witch and former bounty hunter Rachel Morgan has managed to escape her corrupt company, survive living with a vampire, start her own runner service, and face down a vampire master.

But her vampire roommate, Ivy, is off the wagon; her human boyfriend Nick is out of town indefinitely and doesn't sound like he's coming back, while the far-too-seductive vampire Kisten is looking way too tempting; and there's a turf war erupting in Cincinnati's underworld.

And there's a greater evil still. To put the vampire master behind bars and save her family, Rachel made a desperate bargain. Now there's hell to pay: literally. For if Rachel cannot stop him, the archdemon Algaliarept will pull her into the sorcerous ever-after to forfeit her soul as his slave. Forever.

And hear more from the Rachel Morgan series!

What the Critics Say

"Fans of Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake series will be drawn to Harrison's smart, supernatural series." (Booklist)
"The third, and steamiest, Rachel Morgan novel...[features] an endearing cast of central characters, nonstop action, and Harrison's wicked sense of humor...pure, unadulterated fun." (Barnes & Noble Editors Review)

    "Still a great book"

    This has been my least favorite of the series so far. There is too much demon and not enough pixie. That being said it is still a good book and I am looking forward to the next one. Can't wait to find out what kind of trouble everyone can get into next time. Again AWESOME narration!! (I feel like a broken record but she really is great). A must read/listen :)

    I've always loved books. Even before I could read I've loved them. Fact or Fiction, I love books. I'd sooner read a book than see a movie.

    Story
    "Rachel Morgan Kicks Butt"
    What made the experience of listening to Every Which Way but Dead the most enjoyable?

    The narrator Marguerite Gavin does a bang up job of performing each character, bringing each one alive and real. She can read demon, vampire, witch, and pixie or were, perfectly. I just love the demons the most.


    What did you like best about this story?

    When Rachel was trapped on a casino boat which was about to explode and how she managed to excape. I loved how she worked out more of her and the everafter story line. Each brining her character more complete and alive.


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

    I loved her performance of the demons and I always love the pixies.


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

    When one of her partners quit and when she excaped the everafter thinking of another one.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the best of the Rachel Morgan stories so far.

    "Loved the story, not crazy about the narrater."

    I think this book was right up there with the other books in the series. Rachelle Morgan is so fun to try and keep up with. I'm looking forward to listening to the next one.

    I'm a 30-something paranormal, mystery, and humor enthusiast. For me, the main character is the most important part of a book.

    "Jenks?!?!?!"

    Im not going to lie, but t didn't care for the second book, I found Rachel to be entirely too whiny and annoying. She redeemed herself in this one. And Kisten was fabulous.

    I am an avid reader. I enjoy how audible allows me to do chores and listen. It also protects me from too much eye strain. I am picky about the reader. It can make or break a book for me. I love mysteries, psychological thrillers and espionage. My favorite series are by Lee Child, Vince Flynn, Brad Metzer and Kim Harrison. When I am not reading ...I workout and play volleyball.

    Story
    "Absolutely love this series"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I love this series so much that after reading all the books I have gone back and am now listening to the entire series. Witches, demons, vampires, pixies, fairies and elves. There is so much imagination and detail. I love the back story she creates to explain the entrance of inlanders into mainstream society. The reader is also fantastic. Be aware, she did not read book 6.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Her character development and her use of humor


    What about Marguerite Gavin’s performance did you like?

    Her ability to perform the various characters with a number of voices especially the Pixie.

    Story
    "The First in a Great series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Every Which Way but Dead to be better than the print version?

    I liked them both and read the entire series before listening to it. Gavin is not my favorite narrator but she did well in this book, except foe a few places where she paused a little to long as if my Kindle stopped working but it did not take away from the enjoyment of the story.


    Any additional comments?

    The story is great as it tells the story of a witch who is trying to stay alive a vampire and a pixie that befriend her. The three live together in a church and you can see the friendships develop. The best part is the fact that Ivy (vampire) Rachael (witch) live and work together but Rachael is scarred to death of ivy. It's an interesting story with a lot of mixed emotions. It's a good supernatural thriller with two main characters that have a lot of emotional baggage. I recommend this story and suggest that you listen or read them in order, just like the Bones and Cat books.

    "Excellent story can't wait to read more"
    What made the experience of listening to Every Which Way but Dead the most enjoyable?

    I am a big fan of the fantasy detective genre. And was intrigued when I first signed up for Audible by the Hollow series description. It was not a disappointment. Plenty of twists and sexy turns to keep my interest. I'd of said keep me turning pages but it's an audio book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I am fascinated by Ivy as her background and relationships grow.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I wish it was easier to back up more accurately. The control tends to over and under shoot.

    Story
    "Rachel is a great series!"

    Rachel Morgan - Witch and main character
    Ivy - Vamp and lives with Rachel in an old church complete with the church cemetery, garden, pixies, and faeries.
    Nick - Rachel's boyfriend
    Kisten - Vamp and Ivy's boyfriend, or is he?
    Janks (SP?) is Rachel's pixie side-kick and provides great comedy situations.
    Lots of bad guys

    Rachel and Ivy used to work together but Rachel quit and Ivy quit at the same time and they moved into an old church. (First book). In this second book witches are being murdered and Rachel is trying to figure out the "who-done-it" and get the reward. It gets complicated with twists and turns. The story unfolds and the scenes widen as the story develops in interesting side bars.

    Rachel and Ivy's room-mate status is always risky for Rachel as she strives to prevent being bitten. Rachel and Nick have a curious relationship.

    Little swearing, that makes me happy! However, this second book has more steamy scenarios than I like. I purchased #3 and 4 on sale, I hope that there is not so much vamp seduction in these.

    Great part where Ivy is shopping on line for a new pretty casket pillow for her mother for a gift. I do like the comedy in this series.
