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 found a new series"

    Im a guy who likes both vampires & detectives. My favorite author/character combo is Robert B. Parker's Spencer series. Im also an Ann Rice fan. This book I got on sale & the following book, Every which way but dead. I have to say it took awhile to get into the characters not having listen to the 1st book. But by half way though I was very interested in where the book was going & all the new type of character that she added to the vampire genre. By the end of the book I was hooked & I went directly to the 3rd book. I love following a character's growth through a serious of books. Im going to enjoy these character's and this serious.

    I can find a book to love in any genre -- a beautifully written classic, an interesting mystery or sci-fi, a trashy romance. Bring it!

    "Not sure about this series..."

    This series sounds good and the reviews are high, but it's just not holding my interest. I'm not sure why, but it doesn't to keep focus on the main plot line and gets bogged down with other smaller escapades.

    Narrator is very talented, but she seems to be content with just a mediocre performance. She will often pause, then add the rest of the sentence on like it's an afterthought. Sometimes she rushes into the next paragraph when a tiny pause would have made the topic change a little clearer.

    I'm going to try one more book and hope...

    "Great series"

    At first I thought this was going to be too silly and I actually turned it off after just a few minutes and listened to something else. Then I didn't have anything else to listen to so I turned it back on. I am on book 4 now and can't wait to listen to the whole series. It is a classic detective story that happens to have supernatual charecters.

    "Interesting story, slightly difficult narration."

    I can't say this is the best story I have ever read/listened to, but it is darned entertaining. I love the fact that it is set in Cincinnati with familiar names popping up. My main problem is with the narrator. She pauses in the oddest parts of a sentence, breaking the flow of the story and making it a tad irritating to listen to. I didn't really notice this in the first book so perhaps it is just a product of her not feeling well during the production (she sounded a bit congested in parts). It could also be the fact that I normally listen to books while working and in this case I listened on a flight where I wasn't distracted. Overall, though, I would suggest this story to others. I liked it just as much as the first book and I have already purchased book 3.

    "conflicted"

    This is the second book I have read from this series. I was a little disappointed with this one, Rachel who is the main character is sometimes just plain stupid just so the author can create drama. Also the narrator has a cold in many chapters and it is a little irritating to hear the nasal clog in her voice. I still recommend it but not as enthusiasticly as book one.

    "narration issue"

    The story was entertaining but the narration has gotten much worse than in the first book. The narrator, Marguerite Gavin, slurs words and even mis-speaks. For example, she says FBI instead of FIB. The worst is the slurring. The book would have gotten 4 stars except for this issue. I thought her speaking manner would grow on me after the first book of Kim Harrison's, and another book by Lois McMaster Bujold (which made it my least favorite of hers), but this book has possibly put me over the edge for this narrator.

    "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'm a 30-something paranormal, mystery, and humor enthusiast. For me, the main character is the most important part of a book.

    "Rachel too whiny"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Overall, I like this series, and I did enjoy listing to it. It's a complicated plot with a lot of characters, but overall it's not hard to keep everyone together. I just felt that Rachel whined ALL THE TIME. She always jumped to the wrong conclusions- which was a little frustrating.
