More About the Author

The only girl in a large family of boys, former tomboy Kim Harrison invented the first Brigadier General Barbie in self-defence. She shoots a very bad game of pool and rolls a very good game of dice. When not at her keyboard, she enjoys lounging on the couch with a bowl of popcorn watching action movies with The-Guy-In-The-Leather-Jacket. She plays her Ashiko drum when no one is listening, and is hard to find when the moon is new.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I am a fan of this kind of story. Unfortunately authors who can write this kind of thing well are few and far between. Jim Butcher is one, Rachel Cane is another and of course there's Laurell Hamilton and her Anita Blake series (early books anyway) Kim Harrison easily fits in with their illustrious company.

The first book, Dead Witch Walking, set up a wonderful world in which post Turn America is inhabited by humans and Inderlanders. Inderlanders include species such as elves, pixies, witches (if it uses magick it's not human), demons, vampires... you name it. Human authority after the Turn has devolved to the FIB, an organisation built from the remnants of pre-Turn police organisations such as the FBI. Inderlanders, due to their use of magick, need a different authority to keep them in line, namely Inderland Security or I.S for short.

Rachel Morgan used to be an I.S runner -- one of their operatives, but in the first book she finally quits and sets up her own agency with a vampire for a partner, and another partner in the form of Jenks the pixie (a father of 30 kids)

I found the first book a little slow at first, but after the first chapter things liven up quickly. Not so with the second book. It's off to a roaring start with Rachel stealing a fish of all things from a baseball team. The mascot is protected by werewolves, but Rachel is a good witch and she gets away with her fishy heist. Rachel gets stiffed for her fee and spends a lot of her time looking over her shoulder from then on.

This is a great book, and in my opinion is the better of the two. Buy it now. You won't be disappointed.

Just as good as the first, this book is enchanting and gut clenching. Rachel is at her best and growing in character as is Jenks, my fav. The book keeps you hanging on right the way through and without a doubt is as good if not better than the first. The ending as in the first book is great really does have you staying awake all night to read the last few chapters.

Rachel's true powers begin to show themselves and a few characters begin to show there real beings and fears including Trent, but is he as bad as he seems or is there light at the end of the tunnel? And why do girls always like the bad boys!?

Read it you wont be sorry!

Great book. Highly recommended and satisfying read. The pace is so fast you have to run to keep up with it. Rachel is hired by the FIB to find who is murdering witches. You meet all the great characters from DWW, some new ones are introduced and there is definately lots going on. If you like vampires, demons, pixies and other strange beings, this book is for you.
Nearly all the questions from DWW are answered, but Ms Harrison has found lots of new, interesting plot lines that make you want to read book three (out later this year) as soon as possible.
I would recommend you read DWW first as an introduction to the world of the Hollows. But this book works as a stand alone.
I enjoyed DWW, thought it was a great book for a new author, was'nt totally convinced by the mink episode, but looked forward to this one. I have to say this is better than DWW and I shall continue to buy Ms Harrison's books with eagerness.

What can I say, Kim Harrison is a god send!! It's been ages since I've found a series of books that I'm in love with till I'm sat counting the days until the next release (p.s. book 3 comes out this summer). I love the character of Rachel Morgan who seems to be imperfect enough to identify with and still manages to find ways of of impossible situations. Rachel is an earth witch, an Inderlander, which includes witches, pixies, vampires...etc. The Turn occured when Inderlanders came out of the closet so to speak. Why'd they come out? Read the book and find out :D!
She's finding it hard to make the rent and ends up agreeing to be a consultant for the FIB ( not FBI) which is what's left of the human police force after the Turn. A serial killer is on the loose hunting witches and Rachel has a good idea who's doing it. Many questions from the previous book are answered in this novel and it could be a bit heady to just jump into this for a new reader. For returing junkies of Harrison, we find out what Trent really is; skeletons from Rachel's past; and who sent a demon after her in the first book.
With new characters; hilarious pixies and the deepening mystery of Trent Kalamack this series seems to only be getting better.

I am loving these books. KH writes with a simple, laid back style that is easy to read but at the same time deceivingly absorbing. I personally think she could write a shopping list and it would be fascinating. Her stories are sexy, down to Earth (as much as the world she has created can be!) and very witty. Writing in the first person really brings the character of Rachel Morgan to life. All her insecurities and her thoughts on all that befalls her always brings a smile to my face. I am lucky enough to own all nine of the books and already I am getting saddened at the thought of finishing the last one, even here at number two....

The second in the Rachel Morgan series. It does not disappoint and the story flows on with Ivy and Rachel. As usual by the time I get around to reading a series that has been in print for a while there are some excellent reviews giving very good synopsis of the story. I cannot fault the book or storyline and this ebook has made it to my kindle bookcase.
