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!

    "Wickedly entertaining Witch!"


    Urban Fantasy at it's best. Reminds me of Jim Butcher's, Harry Dresdan series, but with a tough, likable female lead. The story is complex and layered. I recommend you read the first in the series because the relationships with the characters are an essential part of the charm.

    Kim Harrison has built a terrific world with humans and every type of creature/species interacting that makes for a thrilling tale. Rachel is an underdog with a big heart that is loyal to her friends at any cost. You can't help but cheer her on. She is an earth witch living in an old church with her vampire friend Ivy who is fighting to resist her blood urges. Jenks, her pixie friends lives in her gorgeous garden with his wife and multiple kids. Together the three of them have an started an investigation firm. The newest challenge is to find out who is the serial witch killer. Old foes are presented as suspects and Rachel reluctantly aligns herself with the FIB.

    By the end of the book discoveries about herself and her father are made, she boosts her reputation, breaks her arm, and has three precarious relationships that will make the next books really interesting. I am a fan!

    The first third of the book is a little slow but stick with it and you will be rewarded. The narration on this book is some of the best I have heard. Even though I have a lot of these books in hardback I plan on listening to them because it makes the book even better.

    "Perfect series."

    These books are amazing.

    This book is very good. I catch my self laughing a lot at the character. She is just too like some of my bestfriends, I can only dream to be so bold. I love the thoroughness of how these books are evolving. I love the length. I listen all the time. And I swear I need some compensation on all the referrals! Lol

    I have bought up to book 4. Buying more. Nothing I don't like about these books.

    Mystery. Sci-fi. Romance. And best of all humor.

    Story
    "Kim Harrison and Marguerite are FAB!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Good, the Bad, and the Undead to be better than the print version?

    Kim Harrison is on Fire. Book II in the Hollows Series is another crazy roller coaster ride. Rachel, and her sidekick Jink's, are at it again; with Ivy at their side who can stop this dynamic trio. Hold on to your audio player because you will not want to turn it off.


    What other book might you compare The Good, the Bad, and the Undead to and why?

    All the books in this series are great, I am listening to them all over again.


    What about Marguerite Gavin???s performance did you like?

    Ms Gavin brings each and every character to life. I can vision each scene as if I were there.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book is full of passion, action, romance, and reflection. I had so much FUN!

    "Awesome series"

    This is a series I was grabbed into after reading all my favorite vampire novels such as the Sookie Stackhouse series, and Jeanine Frost books. It captured my attention, but it wasn't until the 3rd book that I really became completely addicted! However, you have to read the first two to fully understand it!
    The author does a great job in bringing Rachael to life with all her problems! If you like any of the vampire novels that I mentioned above then you will like this series!!!!

    "Hooked on this Series"

    I have fallen in love with this series. It is a guilty pleasure on my commute to and from work. The narrator is great - she gives each character a good personality. I'll admit, that sometimes the main character seems a bit on the whiny side and sometimes the writing can get repetitive but the rest of the story makes up for it. This isn't for people looking for something "deep" - this is for people who just want to listen to something fun.

    "Not the Voice for the book."

    I read the first book in this series on a whim and fell in love with the just about everything that the author brought to the table. It was almost like the birth of a new age Anne Rice-style author. Given.. with every person there are going to be different interpretations of how people should sound, inflection, etc, etc. The reader for this book just about killed the series for me. Sorry. Call me rude, call me fickle, but I'm just putting my two cents in.

    Otherwise, I love the book so far. Just the difference is now is that I've gone back to reading it.

    "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

    "I'm hooked"

    I listened to the first book... and I'm hooked.

    Kim Harrison does a great job of writing, and the narrator does a superior job.

    This book was such a delight to listen to, you will not be dissapointed with this book series.
