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!

    "So disgusted, I couldn't finish it."

    I really enjoyed the first book but this one was a huge disappointment. I kept starting, then lose interest, start again, but in the end I just couldn't pick it up anymore. Rachel's whining was getting on my nerves. The thing with her roommate Ivy is plain stupid. It sounds like an abusive relationship with Rachel blaming herself for Ivy attacking her. Really? Don't see why they are friends. I really can't stand stupid people and Rachel keeps doing the stupidest things. I don't think I can continue with this series. I don't like being annoyed with the main characters of the books I read. The only good thing about this book was the narrator. I'm sorry I wasted a credit.

    "Another one of my favs"

    I am just in love with this series. It is exciting, funny, and unpredictable. I would give the narrator 10 stars if I could. She is AWESOME!! I love Jenks and all his Pixie antics. I would recommend this series to anyone!

    I've always loved books. Even before I could read I've loved them. Fact or Fiction, I love books. I'd sooner read a book than see a movie.

    "A Very Good Read"
    What did you love best about The Good, the Bad, and the Undead?

    I enjoyed the relationships between the characters. The sparing of great wit, acid barbs, and deadly spells make this book fun and exciting.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, the plot was sparked in the first book and plays out nicely until the very end.


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

    I loved Ivy, she really put some deepth into her character.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book made me laugh, but I was sad and angry over Ivy's ordeal.

    "Enjoying this series"

    This is the second book in a good series. I gave book one 3 stars and this one earned 4 stars. It is a series that drags you in. If you enjoy Carrie Vaughn's Kitty Norville you will like The Hollows. Listen in order it's important in this series.

    Rachel Morgan is an earth witch who gets into trouble with demons and elves. She has two partners in her Runners Service Ivy, a vampire, and Jenks, a pixie. Jenks may be my favorite character. Rachel does not usually understand the consequences of her actions this keeps trouble on her heels.

    Marguerite Gavin does a great job as narrator. But I have to say the production quality was not the highest and it seems to get worse as the series goes on.

    "I love the stories. But the tool.."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Really enjoying the Kim Harrison series, just wish the rewind worked better. I only want to go a few lines back but end up at the start of the chapter.


    What about Marguerite Gavin’s performance did you like?

    Good reader, but her male voices all sound like the same guy.

    "Entertaining."

    It gives you an escape from daily life and brings you into the world of witches and vampires as if they are everyday normal people with abnormal problems. A nice change of pace.

    Story
    "A Great Second Book"
    What did you love best about The Good, the Bad, and the Undead?

    I really enjoy Rachael's character. She is young, impetuous, fearless, and loyal. The mythology is rich. Rachel Morgan is an an independent runner who nearly almost lost her life to a demon disguised as a vampire in the first book. That story established Rachel as a freelance investigator, living with an almost undead vampire (Ivy), in an old church. In the garden live her trusty assistant, Jenks (a pixie), and his family. Vampires can live in the daylight, the werewolves are organized, and Ever After is not a nice place to be. Kim Harrison makes you believe.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Trent’s storyline is a clincher. We have such a love-hate relationship with his character right now. He has been set up as the worst kind of bad guy and is certainly seems to be doing his best to earn that reputation. Still Kim Harrison surrounds him in enough mystery to wonder if he could possibly turn out to be a good guy in the end?


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

    I heard her in Dead Witch Walking. Now, her voice is Rachael's voice in my head.


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

    Things come together in a terrifically violent climax. Certain secrets are revealed, and other mysteries come to are brought to light. It is brutal and brilliant.
