The Good, the Bad, and the Undead | [Kim Harrison]

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. 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.

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!

    "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 in this series is as entertaining as the first.

    "Really enjoy the series but hope Rachel grows-up"

    I enjoyed the storyline of different magicals/non-humans trying against the odds (and against the advice of those around them) to live and work together. I like the internal struggles they go through as well as the day-to-day challenges of being bounty hunters & PIs. The reader does a great job in vocalizing the different characters, enabling me to visualize Rachel, Ivy, Jenks, and the others. I've only listened to the first 2 books, but so far, Jenks is my favorite pixy. I do have one complaint; it just seems that Rachel's success in life and in her job happen by accident or by sheer luck. I was hoping that Rachel grows in the series, gets a little smarter, and things actually happen the way she meant it to happen

    Story
    "Demon summoning boyfriends are a pain in the rear."
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Good, the Bad, and the Undead to be better than the print version?

    I think so. I came to the series late so I read the first 5 or 6 books really fast, but I LOVE listening to the series. I was so eager to get through each book I didn't stop to give the characters any vocal personality. This audiobook, Marguerite Gavin, does GREAT with the voices. The different voices give the characters more depth.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Rachel, Ivy, and Jenks all for different reasons. I love Rachel because she's such a mess. I love Ivy because she wants more for herself and tries hard not to hurt (or kill) the ones she loves. Jenks... ah, Jenks. He is smart mouthed and sarcastic. Poor Jenks, Rachel and Ivy will drive him nuts.


    What about Marguerite Gavin’s performance did you like?

    Jenks. I laughed at Jenks when I read the book, but sometimes I laugh so hard my eyes water when Marguerite Gavin gives Jenks the annoyed, frustrated tones that she does.


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

    Yes, I did on more than on occasion listen way longer than I should have and woke up groggy and very grumpy the next morning... what made it better? More Good, Bad and Undead!!


    Any additional comments?

    Rachel deals with her boyfriend and his demon summoning, Witches getting killed one right after the other, and learns something very interesting (and important) about herself and her late father.

    Story
    "Great Urban Fantasy"
    What made the experience of listening to The Good, the Bad, and the Undead the most enjoyable?

    This is a great combination of compelling story paired with excellent narration. The result is an audio book that is hard to set aside.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The intrigue and action were great, but I really like how Kim Harrison further develops her cast of characters and the world in which they live.


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

    Definitely Jenks. I love her characterization of the pixie.


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

    I think there is just a general vibe of how Rachel deals with becoming and unwilling and unsung hero. She is leading a hard knock life, but continues to rise to the challenge.
