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!

    "Good listen"
    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.

    "This book is a must!!"

    This is a great book. I love the story, the characters, and especially the narrator. Marguerite does an awesome job. She talks a little fast but its not hard to follow once you get used to it. But back to the book...Awesome from start to finish! Plenty of action and humor to keep you interested. This is a must for anyone who enjoys books like Sookie, BDB, twilight, etc. You won't regret it!!

    "I tried to like it"

    I missed the point of most of this book. The pacing would slow when describing some little detail, and then gloss over the main points of the book. I found transitions awkward, and frequently found myself how we got from one place to another and what the significance of a particular character was. The story didn't flow for me.

    "Not all it's cracked up to be"

    Honestly. I have no idea what people see in this book. The main character isn't even likeable. In fact, she's down right irritating.

    I only finished it hoping I would find some redeeming value.

    No such luck.

    With such a title and summary, you hope for a fun, sassy ride. The joy is, you get it! Well, I sure did. I'm glad my friends who love this genre sucked me into it!

    "Dead Witch Walking.... I tried. I really tried"
    What disappointed you about Dead Witch Walking?

    I couldn't get beyond the first few chapters. I just didn't care for the writing style or the narration. I really tried to like it.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I don't know... but I had the books in this series in my wish list. I will have to remove them.


    What didn’t you like about Marguerite Gavin’s performance?

    I thought her voice sounded too old for the part.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Dead Witch Walking?

    I couldn't get through much of the book, so I couldn't say.


    Any additional comments?

    It seemed like this would have been something I would have enjoyed. I like other books in this type of genre, but the writing style and the performance were grating. I just couldn't listen beyond the first couple of chapters.

    "So fun!"

    This is my first audiobook from Audible and my first foray into "urban fantasy." Now I'm hooked! I loved how complex the lives of these characters are, and how sanitized. The vampire, Ivy, is truly dangerous because vampires ARE dangerous, not pouting over-aged teens who whine about their existence or promote some weird anti-woman agenda. Our anti-hero is brave and impulsive and prone to make mistakes. But she also learns from her mistakes and listens to what the folks around her say. And the resident pixie is a brand new archetype to me. I'm looking forward to following the adventures of this family by choice.

    "Series keeps getting better and better"

    I am now listening to the 11th book in this series and have enjoyed it very much. Based on other reviews, I did skip the 6th book (The Outlaw Demon Wails) and read it instead of listening. I can't imagine anyone other than Marguerite Gavin narrating the books. Her voices for Rachel, Ivy, Jenks and all the characters are perfect.
