Some nice gaps filled in, but not a good first Rachel Morgan read
on 29 December 2012
I do love the sassy, funny, madcap adventures of Rachel Morgan and friends/colleagues. This fills in some nice gaps, such as her meeting with Pierce after a mistaken summoning in her youth. However I feel you would lose a lot, and gain some spoilers if you read this before her other books, at least up to Pale Demon.
If you want to try some good paranormal fantasy that actually relies on character development, rather than covering it up with sex, then give it a go. It does include some sexy scenes when relevant to the plot, so not a book for the kids, but older teens who watch 15 rated films and the occaisional vetted 18 film should be fine. The first book is Dead Witch Walking (Rachel Morgan 1) - how she manages to get away from the paranormal police force who do NOT like people leaving their employ alive....
