Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Kim Harrison comes the first book in an exciting urban fantasy series. Packed with the perfect balance of wry humour and thrilling action, it will delight fans of thrillers and fantasy alike.

Rachel Morgan is a white witch and runner working for Inderland Security (I.S.) in an alternate world where a bioengineered virus wiped out a great deal of the world's human population – exposing the existence of the supernatural communities that had long lived alongside humanity. For the last five years Rachel has been tracking down law-breaking Inderlanders in modern-day Cincinnati, but now she wants to leave and start her own agency. Her only problem is that no one quits the I.S.

Marked for death, Rachel will have to fend off fairy assassins and homicidal weres armed with an assortment of nasty curses. She's a dead witch walking unless she can appease her former employers by exposing the city's most prominent citizen as a drug lord. But making an enemy of the ambiguous Trent Kalamack is just as deadly as leaving the I.S.

    "I loved this series"
    If you could sum up Rachel Morgan: The Hollows (1) - Dead Witch Walking in three words, what would they be?

    This is a modern sassy series, fun and entertaining. As I remember I preservered with the first book but loved the rest of the series.


    What other book might you compare Rachel Morgan: The Hollows (1) - Dead Witch Walking to and why?

    I think its a stand alone, it's part dectective, part adventure, part witchy and some romance. I ended up loving Rachel, Jinx and Ivy


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

    I really enjoyed Marguerite's narration of the series


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

    Once I progressed probably to book two I had to listen tot them all. When I found a gap in. The series I read the book on iBooks as I wanted continuity


    Any additional comments?

    It would be great to get ' A Perfect Blood' to complete the series

    "Oh how I love this genre but..."

    This author is a hack. I put this book in the "airport" category. A book that you can read/listen to when other things are likely to distract you. I would never buy anything by this author again.

    "Good enough story"
    What made the experience of listening to Rachel Morgan: The Hollows (1) - Dead Witch Walking the most enjoyable?

    I'd say the vulnerability of the main character, the story was also well written.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I cant say i think the narration threw it off for me, maybe if i read the book i would have a favourite character.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    There was something off with the narrators voice it didnt quite match the character. And she didnt quite pull off the other characters either, I dont know how to explain it but just lowering your voice and making it deeper doesnt cut it for me. I think that if the writer had a different narrator one that actually matched the characters then i would've actually really liked this book, but i just couldnt get past this deep husky pretend voice, or her actual voice for that matter.

    "Great to re-enter the Hollows again!"
    Where does Rachel Morgan: The Hollows (1) - Dead Witch Walking rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's probably in the top 25, bearing in mind my top two series span 13 books each...


    What other book might you compare Rachel Morgan: The Hollows (1) - Dead Witch Walking to, and why?

    It sits on my bookshelf next to Kelley Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld [start with Bitten] and Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden [Start with Fool Moon] and consider them to be similar but individual.


    Have you listened to any of Marguerite Gavin’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I have a few performances by Marguerite Gavin, personally she's not too bad to listen to, but i'm not American and do find it a little grating hearing some of the accents. For some reason, when I read I don't hear accents as such.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Jumps to conclusions and kicks ass.


    Any additional comments?

    I already own the paperbacks of these and the kindle editions too. But lately I have little time to read and can fit in audiobooks. I have found myself, more and more of late, continuing series in Audio, as the great expense of a hardback hits my budget. My audible account is paid for by my family as a gift each year, so find this a great way to still get my series fix :)

    "A great start to a fantastic series"

    I absolutely love this Author and her series of books. Having purchased them in paperback I am overjoyed to be able to ‘read’ them on the go. The series is set in the modern times on a parallel to the world as we know it, except for some massive differences such as Pixies, Witches and Vampires living alongside the Humans and Tomatoes (to some anyway) have become reviled.
    This first book introduces us to this world and the characters living within but has a great storyline and sets up the rest of the series, be advised you do need to read in order – give it a go and I am sure you will enjoy it as much as I do.

    "Dead Witch Walking"

    I enjoyed listening to this book very much. The narrator was very engaging and I particularly liked the way she managed to tell the story in a fashion that made it easy for the listener to differentiate between the various characters in the book in a believable manner. Would recommend this book particularly to anyone interested in this type of genre.

    "Great story"

    This is an excellent series that I have had in book form for a long while, but having the time to sit down and read can be difficult. The books are read by an american, which was an annoyance at first (particularly her innability to pronounce names like Ceri) but she is a good narrator with a reasonable range of different voices.
