Rachel Morgan is a witch and an I.S. runner - similar to an FBI agent but for the paranormal world. Her career is going nowhere. It seems as though she can do nothing right and is given the lowest assignments available. Each day and night of work has become drudgery and Rachel is looking for a way out.
Dead Witch Walking quickly immerses the reader in a vibrant cast of characters. We meet Ivy, a living vampire; Jenks, a pixie with a lot of children; Trent, a businessman who may or may not be human and is believed to be dealing in Brimstone, a nasty drug, and so on.
Dead Witch Walking is a paranormal mystery that can easily be compared to Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden series or Laurell K. Hamilton's early Anita Blake novels. Rachel Morgan is a charming character that is very easy to like. She certainly has her issues, but she has none of the angst or brutality of Anita Blake.
Kim Harrison has created a fun book with laughs that are unexpected. The story line is not completely predictable and has many different twists and turns. I hope this is the beginning of a new series.
Kim Harrison describes herself as born in the Midwest. She has been called a witch, among other things, but has never seen a vampire (that she knows of). She loves graveyards and midnight jazz, and wears too much black. Please be sure to visit her website at: [...]
She's got a risky idea that may get her around that, though...if she lives long enough to see it through. Rachel figures that if she can tag the largest brimstone dealer in the Hollows and Cincinnati area, she'll be able to get her contract paid off. However, getting the evidence to bring him down will be far from easy.
With the help of her pixy bodyguard and her living vampire roommate, she may just succeed. If she can quit getting caught.
Enter Kim Harrison's gripping debut novel and step into a world unlike any other. A world of vampires, pixies and fairies, witches and werewolves. A place where humans not only can no longer deny such beings exist, but in some cases, embrace the fact.
Harrison is sure to find success with this preternatural tale of intrigue. The individual characteristics of the bounty-hunting trio entwine to form a bewitching and mysteriously endearing partnership and add further depth to an already captivating tome. Welcome to The Hollows. Watch your back.
For over half the book - I was bored - mainly because there was really nothing that actually drew me to the main characters (except for the pixies).
The main female character came off too immature for supposedly being a "bad ass".
While there was a lot of action scenes - at times it felt like maybe too many of them thrown at the reader too fast.
At times, I felt like all I was getting was an information dump.
No spelling or other errors - the book is well edited.
The pace of the plot does pick up after about half way and things start coming together.
Toward the end - I was glued to the pages.
The characters became much more interesting.
The action scenes more creative instead of being contrived.
There were not so many side issues getting in the way of the plot development. (At the beginning - I felt loss at times with so many characters and so many different "rules" or type of other beings.)
I actually changed my mind about whether this could actually be a series that I might want to follow so I have already downloaded the next in the series to see if it has staying power. With the background already set and the main characters already introduced - I hope that the book starts out as strongly as this one ended and stays there.
