The Good, the Bad, and the Undead

Former bounty hunter Rachel Morgan has it pretty good. She has left the corrupt Inderland Runner Service and started her own independent service.

Publisher's Summary

Rachel Morgan is back and in more trouble than ever! Fans of Laurell K. Hamilton and other vampire novels won't want to miss the second novel in Kim Harrison's addictive supernatural series.

Former bounty hunter Rachel Morgan has it pretty good. She has left the corrupt Inderland Runner Service and started her own independent service. She's survived werewolves, shape-changing demons, bad-hair days, and sharing a church with her vampire roommate, Ivy. She even has a cute (if human) boyfriend - what more could a witch want?

But living with a reformed vampire isn't all it's cracked up to be, particularly when your roommate's very bad ex-boyfriend wants her back and wouldn't mind you in the process. And especially when he's six feet of sheer supernatural seduction and you've got a demon mark that makes vampires literally hotter than hell.

To save herself and Ivy, Rachel must confront the vampire master - and the dark secrets she's hidden even from herself.

And hear more from the Rachel Morgan series!

    "Love it!"

    I love this series. I'm not sure what rock I've been hiding under all these years but I'm glad I've come out. These have all been fabulous. I'm not disappointed.

    "unexpectedly good"

    I like the style in which the author writes. It’s humorous and suspenseful and interesting. I will listen to more books in this series.

    "I wanted to love it"
    Would you try another book from Kim Harrison and/or Marguerite Gavin?

    I enjoyed the first book in the series and wanted to like this one too, but it was too gruesome, not lighthearted enough, and the main character became more and more annoying. Having the heroine continually make wrong assumptions and bad decisions didn't work for me. Character flaws can invigorate a story, but this time they didn't.

    I'm a fan of Sci-fi, fantasy and suspense. I like books that keep me guessing till the end.

    "It's fun, like adults in go carts..."

    This series is just a fun listen. It is not for those of you looking for the depths of The Mists of Avalon. What it does give you is a fun ride, with surprisingly interesting characters that begin to really grow on you. It's mind candy at it's finest, just remember to brush afterwards!

    "Such a disappointment"

    I loved the first book in the series so much but this one really let me down. It fell into the trap that a lot of female-centric fantasy books do which is soft-core porn. I'm glad that Rachel and her boyfriend have a lively sex life, but the unimaginative details are too common for the genre. I'm still not sure why she's dating this guy, anyway. He put her in debt to a demon in the first book. That's not leaving the cap off the toothpaste, that's putting her soul in danger when she begged him not to. Also, the excuses that she makes for her room mate, who attacks her over and over, makes her sound like a delusional battered wife. "It's my fault, she needs me, I'm special, I'll be careful next time, I'm worried about her." blah-blah-blah. So annoying! That said, I thought the second book in the Dresden Files series was horrible for many of the same reasons. I'm willing to give the next book a try after a break.

    "I did not like it."

    I found the characters confusing and was bored by the fact that a lot of it was just chit chat. I like vampires, and I like adventure but this book was just plain boring.

    "Book 2"

    Book 2 in this series is as entertaining as the first.

    "Small bright glimpses with a whole lot of awful"

    I tenatively downloaded this book, as I was hedging my bets that it would be better then the first. That's a bet I lost. Rachel is the most annoying main character I have EVER had to bear. She never learns from her past mistakes, ever.

    I don't want to give anything away from the story, but the writer makes no attempt to come up with a half way decent story to deal with the bad guys in the story. Time and time again Rachel delves head long into something that just completely makes you shake your head. She then gets burned, talks at length about why not to do something like that, to turn around and do it again and again.

    The relationship between her and her roommate Ivy had not changed at all. The problem they had from the last book continued throughout this entire book. Two full books of the same stupid dialogue between the two main characters was absolute torture. How any editor allowed this into the book is beyond me. It was barely tolerable in the first book, but just atrotious in the second.

    At this moment, I'm going to take a break from this series. It has moments and some characters I really like, but then the author does something that just totally ruins the whole story. The author has setup a lot of great elements to this world, that she will finally utilize correctly, but the main character is so terribly annoying that I just can't pull myself to listen to this anymore at this moment.


    If you're a fan of this genre like Charlaine Harris's books, or Laurel K. Hamilton, this series is not anywhere close to those. Maybe the later books are much better, but I can't recommend this story to anyone for any reason

    Story
    "Not Great :("
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The narrator sounds like she's fighting off a cold for most of the book. She also says some words that are flat out wrong, like calling the FIB the IFB, or stumbling over longer sentences.


    Would you recommend The Good, the Bad, and the Undead to your friends? Why or why not?

    I picked up this book after listening to the first one out of interest in the supporting characters' story lines, but with Rachel's unbelievable idiocy regarding proper procedure (police and life), I don't know if I will continue the series.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Review/have some kind of post-production to fix her slip-ups or re-record when she wasn't sick.


    Was The Good, the Bad, and the Undead worth the listening time?

    Only if you're not paying very close attention. I don't feel it was worth my credit value I used to buy it.
