Publisher's Summary

Rachel Morgan is a runner with the Inderland Runner Services, apprehending law-breakers throughout Cincinnati. She's also a witch, one of the many Inderlanders who revealed themselves after a genetically engineered virus wiped out 50 percent of humanity. Witches, warlocks, vampires, werewolves: the creatures of dreams and nightmares have lived beside humans for centuries, hiding their powers. But now they've stopped hiding, and nothing will be the same.

On the run with a contract on her head, Rachel reluctantly teams up with Ivy, Inderland's best runner...and a living vampire. But this witch is way out of her league, and to clear her name, Rachel must evade shape-changing assassins, outwit a powerful businessman/crimelord, and survive a vicious underground fight-to-the-death...not to mention her own roommate!

Fun, sassy, filled with action, humor, and romance, Dead Witch Walking is the perfect summer listen for anyone who likes vampires, paranormal fantasy, romance, or just a great beach book.

And hear more from the Rachel Morgan series!

    "Just terrible...."

    I bought this on the recommendation of the Kindles & Wine blog which have been dead on with authors like JoJo Mayes, Charlaine Harris and Karen Moning - this book however they were dead wrong. Uninteresting story with a lead character I didn't like, I had to struggle to finish this one (not wanting to waste my credit). Unlike Johanna Parker whose smooth southern accent accentuated the True Blood story and drew me into the world of Bon Temps - I did not care for this narrator at all. Waste if a credit

    Story
    "In hindsight: one of the best books in the series"
    If you could sum up Dead Witch Walking in three words, what would they be?

    Fantasy, Action, Attitude


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rachel is obviously my favorite character, but there really isn't much to choose from. She's clearly the character we are meant to identify with, and all the others are either somewhat 2-dimensional or pretty flawed and not likeable.


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

    It's typical Marguerite Gavin, and that's a good thing! She is perfect for this role, as she gives it just the right amount of "attitude".


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

    No, I was happy to spread it over a week or so.


    Any additional comments?

    I've been through the entire series, and the series has had it's ups and downs, in terms of my enjoyment of the books. In hindsight, this first book is certainly one of the best.

    "Not bad."

    Aside from the alternate reality setting, the lead character makes me think of a female Harry Dresden. The lead is just a bit too concerned with her libido as well. The performance is ok. I've heard better and I've definitely heard worse.

    "Awkward Badass"
    What did you love best about Dead Witch Walking?

    This book was hilarious! The characters were well written and the scenes were fantastic. The story line was in-depth and interesting.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dead Witch Walking?

    Every time Rachel had an encounter, here inner dialog was great.


    Which character – as performed by Marguerite Gavin – was your favorite?

    Rachel was done well and Francis was the best! Nasally and annoying..


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

    Absolutely. I'm pretty picky about how I spend my credits, and I'm really tired of the Teen drama with a twist of fantasy. I've read a ton of the vampire and ghost stories available, but this one is for adults without the sex.

    "Vampires and Witches"
    What did you like best about Dead Witch Walking? What did you like least?

    Jenks - He was hilarious and I loved the voice the narrator gave him. Rachel - Got a little tired of her reactions to Ivy every time she came near her. Also, some of her decisions were a little questionable.


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

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    The story was good for the most part but dragged in several places.

    What about Marguerite Gavin’s performance did you like?

    She seemed to flow effortlessly between characters and scenes


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Ivy's reactions and efforts to control and addiction


    Any additional comments?

    This book was great. I was turned on to these books by a co worker since I loved the Dresden File Books by Jim Butcher. Please check out this series. I think you will enjoy them.

    "Good idea not executed as well as it could've been"
    Where does Dead Witch Walking rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    About a 6 on a 1-10.


    Has Dead Witch Walking turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. This is a fun genre. I enjoy the theme a lot - witches, pixies, vamps, demons - good stuff.


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

    Janx's voice. It was very amusing and well done. I think she did all of the characters extremely well. I would listen to more books read by Ms. Gavin.


    Any additional comments?

    I would read other books in this genre by Kim Harrison but only if they didn't have the Rachel Morgan character in them. I did not like her one bit. She was a spoiled, stubborn, rude and stupid character and I had no feeling for her besides annoyance. Also, the story plot was a little "movie of the week". It was trite and tiresome. I wasn't so much interested in the storyline as I was in the characters and their world. I really wished that the story explored more of Ivy and Janx. I was also a little disappointed that the loose ends weren't tied up very well at the end of the book. I hope that Ms. Harrison's next book is more about the world of the vamps and/or pixies. I think it may be more interesting.

    "Great series. I keep wanting more."
    What made the experience of listening to Dead Witch Walking the most enjoyable?

    The narration is excellent. The character develop well and the world feels full and dynamic with enough real world to help the fantasy come to life. The problems Rachal gets herself in seem daunting and with no way to go back and no desire to do so she finds her self and her two closest friends with only one choice. Stand or die. This holds fast thru out the entire series and only gets better as the depth of the world and personalities works its way out. If you like fantasy and magick in a mostly modern era. If you like demons witches and vampires. You will enjoy this series. I am a guy and wile there is a great deal of lover interpersonal relationship emotional involvement in this series it did not degrade in to a "sappy love story with spells and fangs". As a guy i prefer action but a listener looking for quality emotion that enhances the story more than becoming the story will most likely come away satisfied.
