Original Review from 2012:

 

First Thought When Finished: I am a Rachel, Ivy, and Jenx fan now! This was just to fun!

What I thought of the Case: In Dead Witch Walking, the main focus is on Rachel starting a new chapter in her life. She is quitting her job and they are not taking it well at all. They keep trying to kill her and that plays throughout the book. The other part is getting her new business setup with Ivy and Jenx. Needless to say Dead Witch Walking is fast and furious from beginning to end. We are introduced to lots of key players (I think) and taken on an action packed thrill ride. There is so much going on that when the end happened I was shocked that Kim Harrison managed to pack so much into the last quarter. I immediately wanted to pick up book 2!

What I thought of the Characters: I usually have a problem with 1rst in series books because you are given a bunch of character info but no action to back that up. That is not true in Dead Witch Walking–the characters are introduced through their actions and you either love/hate/get annoyed with them through that. I really love when an author takes that path to getting the reader comfortable in their world. Needless to say I am a huge fan of Rachel–she is not perfect and does a lot of things that make you shake your head. However, she is loyal to her friends and is giving in nature. Jenx and Ivy also made very positive impressions on me and I can’t wait to see more of their adventures. I am not so sold on the “maybe” love interests but then again in UF, I seldom am.

What I thought of the Audio:

Narrated by Marguerite Gavin/ Length 13 hrs and 14 mins


This audiobook is very well done! Marguerite is perfect for Rachel and her punctuation/articulation/emotions were right on the money! I highly recommend the audio.

Final Thoughts: I really loved Dead Witch Walking by Kim Harrison and had fun getting introduced to The Hollows.

 

New Thoughts Jan 2015

None really other than this time I am immediately jumping to book 2 and going until I am through with the series! Gonna be a great ride, I can just tell!

    I haven’t jumped into this series yet, but you’ve made the audiobook option very tempting. I start working on my Masters in August and I’m pretty sure the only time I’ll have to read books for pleasure will be when I’m working out or driving. Since I can’t legally read and drive (it would probably end badly), I’ll probably be going for audiobooks. I’m going to save this book until then.

      I am on book 5 (put it on hold for a bit as I am waiting for my library to get a copy) and so far the romance is the only part I don’t like. Luckily it isn’t distracting to me. I hated N, Don’t like K as a love interest, and T hasn’t warmed me up yet LOL

  2. Ramona

    I like fast and furious all the way through πŸ™‚ And I especially like a narrator who is a good match for the series (think Rebecca Soler and The Lunar Chronicles). It can be really off-putting when the person that reads doesn’t “get” the characters… This is a wonderful review – loved it!
