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!

    Story
    "Heroine’s recklessness gets her into trouble"

    which is too close to stupidity for me.

    If you like to lose yourself in an urban fantasy world, this is a good one. But I want stories where character and plot are the main draws. Here not much happens to support the plot. The setting has a wide variety of paranormals: witches, vampires, pixies, elves, werewolves, and demons. I like the way they live, work, and interact with each other and humans in current day.

    My biggest problem is that I don’t enjoy Rachel. She is reckless, impulsive, jumps to wrong conclusions, and makes mistakes. Those character traits are the source of her troubles and conflicts throughout the book. Some of it is stupid. In one scene she tells Trent she doesn’t like him because he is a thief (and other things). Well, Rachel is a thief in this book which bothered me. A thinks B stole a fish. Rachel is hired to steal it back which she does. Then she finds out A was mistaken and B did not steal the fish. So I think Rachel should return the fish to B. She does not. She keeps the fish for herself. Yes ornery characters can be fun. In fact I love some of them in other books, but this didn’t work for me. I couldn’t like her, and therefore I could not enjoy her escapades.

    Other Rachel examples:
    A wants to take one of Rachel’s books. Rachel says “Let him have it.” After A leaves, B tells Rachel now she cannot do the spell she needs because it was in that book. Rachel says “Oh.”

    Rachel is in a dangerous situation and needs to do a chant. She gets distracted in the middle of the chant and says “Oh my God,” then she forgets the last word of the chant, but she has already interrupted the chant, then several moments later she remembers the last word.

    Another problem:
    In every crisis, someone else comes along to save Rachel - at least in the first two books. She may do something weird trying to save herself, but it doesn’t finish the scene. It reminds me of “deus ex machina” (a god comes in to move the story forward when the writer can’t think of another way out).

    The narrator Marguerite Gavin was ok.

    Genre: urban fantasy

    "Another light entertaining book from Kim Harrison."

    I had listened to the first book becuse of a group of stories offered by Audible of different authors, one being Kim Harrison.

    I enjoyed the first book so much, I purchsed the second right after.

    Love the personalities, the wry humor, and Jinx too!....lol

    "meh"

    I like the world that has been created and most of the characters. However, I can't get over the way Rachel treats her friends. She endangers one's career for a petty reason and continues to trust one even though it is obvious she shouldn't. Also, the whole thing between Rachel and Ivy. Either it's a thing or it's not. There is no need to drag it out. As always, Marguerite Gavin does a great job as narrator. I will give the next one a try when I have caught up on my reading and have nothing else.

    I loved reading about King Arthur and Knights of the round table when I was a wee lad. Now I am older and love Game of Thrones!

    "Wow, better than the first!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, while many of the charactors are set in the first, you as a reader can pick right up on the characters in this book. Marguerite Gavin , IMO, is incredible, with her emotions, and voicing, she makes this book very interesting. She is a great narrator, doing this book justice. This is a very entertaining series.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    THe conniving of the vamps, and sub-plots in the story.


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

    I enjoy Rachel and Ivy, and Nick and Glenn.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Sinners in CinCin


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait to read the next.

    "This witch can kick some butt."
    Where does The Good, the Bad, and the Undead rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    All of the hollows series are right up there at the top of my must listen list for audiobooks can't recoment them enough.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Thats a hard question, Kims characters are all very well written and all have there moments. If I had to choose I would say Jenks he really holds it them all together.


    What does Marguerite Gavin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Marguerite really brings a great voice to the characters and personality that although is on the page is brought to life by her increadible voice.


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

    I don't want to give anything away so I'll just say this alot of people have a problem with all the mistake Rachel makes, but really in the end she allways gets the Job done. My favorite part is allways when our little witchy figures out whats going on and starts handing our bad guys there heads.


    Any additional comments?

    Funny and sexy these stories are an all around good time.
