Kims first "Hollows" book. If you like urban fantasy, you will LOVE these books. Very well written, great characters, action, comedy, and a little spice. Buy it, read it, youll be hooked.

This is the first in an ongoing series. I read many books in this genre and truly enjoy these characters. This book hooked me and I couldn't wait to read the next. The characters,their relationships, and abilities evolve with each book, which keeps the story-line interesting. If you enjoy vampire/were fiction or "paranormal romance" you should give this one a read!

Aside from reading the first few Anne Rice novels back in the day, I've had no exposure to "vampire/witch/werewolf fiction" in years. This was my first book by Kim Harrison and I thoroughly enjoyed it. She's created a believable, interesting world in which supernatural folks co-exist (peacefully, for the most part) in a fictional, futuristic Cincinnati. The heroine, Rachel, is a witch. She is plucky, charming, clever and flawed in all the right ways: she's a little bit clumsy, a little too loud sometimes, and occasionally downright dorky, all of which makes her very likable and easy to identify with.

This particular book introduces us to Cincinnati and the Hollows, explains how it all works, and launches right into Rachel's story of quitting her job and starting her own business with her vampire best friend (Ivy) and a fairy (Jenks). Quitting her job landed a price on her head and the book follows her efforts to pay off the contract that is out on her, figure out who's behind some mysterious bio-engineering plots and establish herself as a serious businesswoman doing serious work briging in bad guys in the Hollows.

This book is humorous and rich with detail without being overly wordy. One of the things I have really come to admire about this author is that her decsriptions of any given setting or situation seem effortless and are as clear as if you were watching a film in your head. I like the world she has created and I have fallen in love with the characters. I am thrilled there are more books in this series, because I really do want to know what happens next. These are the kind of books you just can't put down.

If you're looking for something a little different from the usual literary fiction, Kim Harrison's series might be for you. It's high on intrigue but still completely believable. Her settings ring true, and her descriptions of people, places and situations are accurate and interesting. There is a very subtle undercurrent of eroticism running through the novel (as is the nature of vampires in general, I think, and the author would be remiss if she overlooked what is apparently established fact in the literary world), but nothing terribly graphic. She manages to pull off "sexy" without turning into porn.

I give this book and the series 2 enthusiastic thumbs up.

She's also a witch, one of the many Inderlanders who revealed themselves after a genetically engineered virus wiped out 50% of humanity. Witches, warlocks, vampires, werewolvesandndash;the creatures of dreams and nightmares have lived beside humans for centuries, hiding their powers. But now theyand#7525; 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 runnerand#18478;d a living vampire. But this witch is way out of her league, and to clear her name, Rachel must evade shapechanging assassins, outwit a powerful businessman/crimelord, and survive a vicious underground fightandndash;toandndash;theandndash;deathand#19311;t to mention her own roommate!

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

Vampires rule the darkness in a predator-eat-predator world rife with dangers beyond imagining—and it's Rachel Morgan's job to keep that world civilized.

A bounty hunter and witch with serious sex appeal and an attitude, she'll bring 'em back alive, dead . . . or undead.
