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.

Good but felt a little hollow

although a very enjoyable story, there's quite a lot of occasions where you have to suspend belief as the main character makes some very odd choices that don't seem logical. Whilst she is likeable, she makes a lot of assumptions that i kept waiting to trip her up but never truly did. I unfortunately found the narrator a little grating which didn't help but that's a personal preference.

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 :)

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
