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.
Poor Rachel, she really gets in the middle of the worst kind of trouble. She really is a waling disaster but I think that's part of what makes her so likeable.
I loved Al's part in this. He's completely deranged, calculating, manipulative and utterly charming. He's definitely one of my favourite characters in the series. Looking back, I'm picking up things I missed the first time round and watching his and Rachel's relationship grow all over again is very enjoyable.
Trent in this was slightly less heinous and a tad more charming than in book one. Rachel still completely hates his guts which is just excellent. I've never been a fan of insta-love and Trent and Rachel's relationship is the complete opposite. She mostly hates him, very occasionally tolerates him if he's useful and more often than not she trying to arrest him. We didn't see Trent a while lot in this book but what was there was very fun to read.
My heart broke for Ivy in this one, it truly did. No-one deserves what Piscary did to her, least of all Ivy. I always thought Ivy kind of got lost in the last few books so I really enjoyed her story in this book.
Obviously I love this series, its characters and the world and this installment was no exception to my fan girling.
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.
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.
