This book is a wonderful first book in a great new fantasy series. Humans take a back seat to the Vampires, witches, pixies, werewolves and all the things that go bump in the night. Great deep and flawed characters capture our heart. All with action, humor, and serious issues tied together to make an enjoyable read.

Urban Fantasy. "It takes a witch to catch a witch," explains Rachel Morgan, who users her talents to apprehend unlicensed magic practitioners in the supernatural part of Cincinnati known as the Hollows. Fed up with the thankless, dead-end assignments provided by her employer, Interlander Security, Rachel intends to set up her own bounty-hunting business. Unfortunately, the only way to "retire" is to die on the job -- the solution favored by her former boss, who puts out a hit on her. Dead Witch Walking is the 1st book in author Kim Harrison's popular Hollows series, which includes 14 full-length novels as well as numerous short stories. Fantasy newsletter November 2015

I have loved ALL of Kim's Hollows books & would recommend any whom want alternative Supernatural Fantasy with only a light dollop (in comparison to say Sherrilyn Kenyon's novels, another great Supernatural Fantasy/ Romance writer in my opinion) of romance. Found her well written & her stories really tend to draw me in.

Loved it and the whole series. A few parts are questionable but in the end I fell for the characters and the story.

Slow beginning to an outstanding series. Glad I stuck with it. Jenks is a fantastic character, and I'm glad to follow him through the series.

I actually quite enjoyed this book. I absolutely loved Jenks and I cannot wait to keep on reading the series. Oh, BTW, Jenks is 4 inches tall not 6 and this book is not meant to be "thought provoking," it's meant to be entertaning. And so it is! I really enjoyed the plot with all the twists and turns and, yes, with Rachel's screw-ups and all. They make it entertaining. If you want something "thought provoking" I suggest you read Marx. ;o)

Read lots of these urban fantsy series & this one was just average. It tries too hard to be funny but is just mildly amusing in places. Thank goodness for the Jenks character, he's the best thing in it. More suitable as teen literature than adult .

I was embarassed to be reading a book where a 6-inch pixie is one of the main characters! And then the brief appearance of a leprochaun and small fairies. Felt rather juvenile to me. I prefer Karen Marie Moning's big, hunky fairies...thank you very much! This book isn't labelled YA (13-21) but it seems like it's better suited for younger adults (early 20s) {reasons - tame nature of the action, no swearing, non-existent sexual content, etc}.

The tomatoes thing I thought was a bit cheezy and unimaginative. Come on... This book was by no means thought provoking! I felt no connection to any of the characters.

Certainly the author must have has it in mind to leave LOTS OF ROOM for Rachel's character to grow as, in this book, she's not too smart (poor planner), makes a lot of mistakes, and comes off as rather weak despite her good reflexes. I'm sure she'll become wiser, almighty powerful, and grow thicker skin in a few books...

Glad I got #1 over and done with. I'll try the next. I won't give up yet as this series has great reviews further on in the series

White witch Rachel Morgan has been a bounty hunter for Inderland Security for the last three years and it's been a constant bumbling battle for good assignments to prove her worth. She's become bored and disillusioned with the job and she wants out. Problem is, retiring from I.S. means a swift and sure retirement from life. The I.S. doesn't take kindly to broken contracts.
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.

Damn it back to the turn I would be lucky to survive this I.S. contract - Rachel about the contract out on her life.
