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)

Great to re-enter the Hollows again!
It's probably in the top 25, bearing in mind my top two series span 13 books each...
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.
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.
Jumps to conclusions and kicks ass.
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 :)
A great start to a fantastic series
