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!

    "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.

    "Not as good as first book"

    I didn't find this book too captivating.... Not one of the books I just can't put down... But it was entertaining enough. Not a bad story... Just a bit too complex at times. Also, the narrator seemed to have a stuffy nose a few times, the voice would slow down and be a bit stuffy. Other than that, it was an ok read. Will start on book 3 soon!

    "A good story..."

    ...and worth downloading if you like the genre, but I do want to address the common complaint of Marguerite Gavin's pronunciation. Yes, she does flub words; not often, but when she does it is apparent and usually near each other (30 minutes into this book you have "errrrr on the side of caution" (instead of it sounding like "air") and "rye-bald" for "ribald" (I want a pastrami on ryebald, please)).

    Everybody mispronounces words at some time, but don't blame the narrator. To err is human (or preternatural), but to not catch it is the producer/editor's fault--that's what "takes" are for.

    But don't let this detour you from looking into any of these books; Gavin has a good voice that fits the character, and you can even use her flubs as character traits of a 20-something witch detective that lacks linguistic talent to help you get through it all.

    "It is not terrible. 3.5 stars MAX."

    It is not terrible. 3.5 stars MAX. I gave 4 but didn't feel good about it, however I felt worse leaving a 3... so 4 it is.

    Seriously, the main character is not too bright, I really think things should have been written a bit differently in a few parts. The action in this book is really lacking along with some common sense. I think the writer couldn't figure out how to keep the story moving and made the main character do things out of character. The idea behind what this book is about has so much potential I keep hoping the writer will exploit it. I would re-class this book to high end drama with a little action. I am hoping the next book will be better, fingers crossed.
