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.

"Action packed… chick-lit with a supernatural twist." (The Times)
"A spellbinding blend of sharp wit and vivid imagination. A wonderfully fun romp through the supernatural world." (Kelly Armstrong)
"Discovering a new series like this is like finding buried treasure." (Diana Gabaldon)
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.
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
I really enjoyed Marguerite's narration of the series
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
It would be great to get ' A Perfect Blood' to complete the series
I am an Australian woman who enjoys reading many different styles of books, from history to sci fi and mystery to poetry. I also love to listen to the same whilst not paying attention to other things. I aim for my reviews to be short and succinct so that they are easy to read.
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.
Hi all fellow listeners. I am disabled and spend most my time at home or walking my beautiful Jack Russell dog Sydney. I live for my dog and fantasy world. Keeps me going having this wonderful site to get all my books from. Remember to laugh and smile every day and throw some love into the mix :)
Unfortunately i did not enjoy this book at all. I gave up after the first few chapters. Just not me.
I'd say the vulnerability of the main character, the story was also well written.
I cant say i think the narration threw it off for me, maybe if i read the book i would have a favourite character.
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.
