Customer Reviews

The second book in the series was just as good as the first if not better!
JlWelch
Very well written, the characters are well defined and the stories are fun, exciting and a little edge of your seat in parts.
Amazon Customer
It's a much stronger story line with better character development and an excellent plot.

Wow! I thought Dead Witch Walking was excellent, but GB&U knocked my socks off. The events of this book take place a scant few months after DWW, so there is a high degree of continuity to the story line. Several of my niggling questions left unanswered in DWW were resolved nicely. We find out who called up that nasty demon and why. And I was happy to learn that my suspicions about Trent's species were correct. The relationships and interactions between the growing cast of characters are more complex and interwoven than in the first installment, and Rachel learns that there are so many more shades of gray than she'd like to think about. The mystery is solid and intelligent. The urban fantasy elements are richly textured. Rachel is impetuous and prone to jumping to conclusions (sometimes correctly, sometimes not), but she's still young and those flaws make her character more believable. All in all, I give this book my highest recommendation, and I can't wait until the third in the series, Every Which Way But Dead, comes out this summer.

This is the second in a new series written by Kim Harrison that is based in an alternate world where magic happens and a vampire can be your best friend - during the day. The premise is that a runaway virus brings about The Turn, and when it runs itself out, half the world is occult - witches, fairies, pixies, vampires, etc. And the other half is human, and scared to death of tomatoes. The premise is the same as the old Shadowrun series, but the world of Turned Cincinnati is almost as cozy and familiar as the one we live in. Well, almost.

Our heroine is Rachel Morgan, an independent runner (as in trouble shooter/maker), who almost lost her life to a demon disguised as a vampire in the previous volume. 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. This would be almost normal if Ivy wasn't in a perpetual struggle with her desire to eat people and her obvious affection for Rachel, if Jenks wasn't a potty mouthed mischief maker, and if Rachel didn't have a knack for careening from one deadly mess to another.

This time Rachel's problems start when she accepts a contract to help with the investigation of a series of serial killings that is leaving the city's ley line witches in a bad state of disassembly. Her task is to play a college student in the local University to spy on a particular professor. Rachel, however, believes she is watching the wrong person, and that Trent Kalamack, the man who once turned her into a ferret and dropped her in a rat fight. With Rachel compulsively chasing Kalamack and Ivy trying to desperately avoid her own fate, this is a story that is in perpetual crisis.

Rachel Morgan returns in the series as eager as ever to bring Trent Kalamack down while she makes small runs on the side (hey, a witch has got to eat!). When a string of witches are murdered for reasons unknown, human cop-shop calls her in as a "consultant"... as if she was ever one to stand around and give advice without doing it herself. This second book in the series is even better than the first. With the I.S. off her back, she doesn't have to worry (much) about booby-trapped charms and interlander feds out to kill her, now she can concentrate on more important things, like saving her soul from demons, keeping her blood from vampires and preventing a witch-killer from slaying anybody else. She has her work cut out for her.

"Dead Witch Walking" and "The Good, the Bad and the Undead" are a fresh read to smart-aleck bad-guy hunters. Where Hamilton takes Anita seriously and makes her scarier than she's supposed to be, Harrison has made Rachel way more accessible; a lot less perfect. Rachel Morgan is good at her job, except when she's being clumsy, or when she's jumping to conclusions, or bumbling by selling her soul to a demon... not to mention her un-hunky, geek of a boyfriend who's addicted to demon summoning. Did I mention that Rachel dresses a tad like a slut? Oh, and she wears stinky perfume to ward off her vampire partner-housemate who "vants to suck her blood" because really, as a vamp living with a witch, it's the proper thing to do. But what really sucks is when Rachel does a "run" or a job and she doesn't get paid for it. Apparently, that happens a lot with her. Hilarious, but creepy. Serious but irreverent.

I love the idea behind the urban fantasy craze - vampires, fairies and werewolves, all trying to live normal, everyday lives alongside humans. It is a great idea. I wish someone would get it right.

What Harrison writes is fluff fantasy, the sort of thing you read on the bus because you don't want to think too hard and will probably fall asleep anyway.

That's my excuse for having read this - I needed bus reading. I'd read the first book of this series and didn't hate it, so I picked up the second. Now that I've read two Hollows books, I know the reason I didn't like the books is because of Rachel Morgan.

Rachel Morgan is not a strong, intelligent, independent woman. She is a dumb bully. She is aggressive for the sake of being aggressive, reckless and stupid, and does the opposite of what anyone tells her just because someone tried to tell her what to do. She does this even after having the reasons explained to her. She is a teenager in an adult body. I spend my working hours around teenagers. I don't want to read about obnoxious teens on my off-hours.

Rachel's best friend (of what appear to be a whopping three - big surprise) is a vampire. In the world of the Hollows, vampires can't control their thirst for blood very well, so naturally Rachel decides it would be a good idea if the two of them lived together. Everyone is telling Rachel it's dumb to live with a vampire. Rachel refuses to leave, even when her roommate attacks her. In the end, Rachel engages in a bit of heroism on Ivy's behalf. We are supposed to feel that Rachel is dedicated, trusting and protective (like Anita Blake), but I agree with all the other characters: Rachel is dumb.

I also don't like Rachel Morgan because I suspect that she is a Mary Sue for the author.
