Dead Witch Walking
Dead Witch Walking | Kim Harrison
All the creatures of the night gather in "the Hollows" of Cincinnati, to hide, to prowl, to party ... and to feed. Vampires rule the darkness in a predator-eat-predator world rife with dangers beyond imagining -- and its Rachel Morgan's job to keep that world civilized. A bounty hunter and witch with serious sex appeal and an attitude, she'll bring 'em back alive, dead ... or undead.

I have started a re-read before the new book comes out. I am doing a slow re-read with The Cincy Underground Facebook group, which suits me at the minute timeline wise, though I may jump ship to the Goodreads read along with Kim at some point!

It‘s been ages since I read these, and I had forgotten a lot! But I love Rachel, Ivy, and Jenks, and I can‘t wait to see more of Al. I never warmed to Trent or Nick though, Rach has terrible taste in men!

thegirlwiththelibrarybag Ahh, I also started a reread... I should get back to it! I didn‘t know there was going to be a new book 6d
Bookworm54 @thegirlwiththelibrarybag There are 2! American Demon is expected to come out in June next year :) it‘s set between the end of the last book and the epilogue 6d
thegirlwiththelibrarybag Ok! I stopped reading originally after one of my favourite characters was murdered - but I read at least the first two earlier this year - hopefully will get back into it (I‘m pretty bad at drifting away from series) 6d

Day 16 of the #Fallisbooked challenge by @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks and @OriginalCyn620

#Wicked - The word often gets thrown around in reference to witches (mainly because of that one bad apple), but most witches I know are actually benevolent and compassionate people. Rachel Morgan, Wanda Maximoff, Arra Pelindrake, and the good witches from the Potterverse are all noble heroines. Witches aren‘t wicked, they PROTECT us from the wicked! 🧙‍♀️

Okay I tried. I tried so hard for over 2 months to like this book, but this book is so damn boring I want to scream! You could literally skip over entire chapters and not miss a thing. I'm still torn because I really really want to like this book but I know I shouldn't force myself. Perhaps I will set it aside for right now and pick it up at a later date.

4 out of 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Two things that are very important to me in a novel are characters and story. Fortunately, this book has a plethora of fun characters! Witchy heroine Rachel is funny and engaging, yet also flawed enough to feel real. Ivy the vampiress is somber yet charming, and Jenks the pixie is a hilarious scene-stealer!

The story is a bit lacking, and there are too many unanswered questions at the end, but it‘s still worth reading.

Branwen Did you like it enough to continue with the series? 1y
DaveGreen7777 @Branwen Oh, definitely! I know people who have read the series who have told me that the first book is one of the weakest installments, and that the storytelling gets much better later on. I do want to continue the series eventually! 😊 1y

I love the world building in this book, an AU where humans didn't head to the moon, but instead focused on genetics. When a genetically modified disease wipes out half of humanity the supernaturals reveal themselves.

This focuses on a witch called Rachel, who just wants to quit her job, but of course it is never going to be as easy as that.

It has fast paced plot, great characters and I loved every moment. Can't wait to read yhe whole series.

Buechersuechtling I think it‘s the series I started reading years ago (8 or 9 or so). By that time the series already had like, don‘ remember exactly, 13 volumes or so. At first I really liked it but after reading 5 or 6 books I was tired of it. I didn‘t like how the storyline was built. It bored me. But I wish you more reading joy. 🙂🍀 10mo

@LazyOwl These are my top 5 #urbanfantasy series because, when it comes to this type of read, I have a hard time choosing. For me, these series have to have a strong female MC and a world that closely reflects ours. I'm not a big fan of the overdone vampire/werewolf trope. There has to be something in the series that stands out from the crowd. I want strong world building and relatable character development. #NYBirthdayGiveaway

WarpedSweetness I'm so glad I came across this! I love Kim Harrison and Patricia Briggs. And I'm always on the hunt for urban fantasy that fit that. I'm going to look up those other books. 2y

#HallowReads #day12 #HallowedGrounds Catching up on yesterday's prompts,got wrapped up in The Rules Of Magic.This is a series I've used before but it's perfect for this.Rachel Morgan is a witch in an alternate version of this world.She & her business partners,Ivy a live vampire & Jenks,a pixie,all live in an old church with an attached graveyard. Most of their property is still hallowed ground, which gives them protection from demons & the undead.

Cinfhen How are your eyes??? Improving?!? 2y
Laura317 A live vampire. 🤔🤔🤔 2y
Lizpixie @Cinfhen slowly but surely. Adjusting to two sets of glasses is annoying but if that's what it takes👍 @Laura317 in this world, you're born a vampire but don't become truly undead until your mortal death. Kind of similar to Vampire Academy & their different types of vampires. 2y

In a similar world to ours,a mutated virus escapes into the world at the end of the 60s which attached to a tomato,decimates the worlds population.The supernatural community,being immune to the virus,come out to humans in what becomes known as The Turn.Rachel Morgan,the narrator,is a witch.

Bookworm54 It took me a while to get into it the first time I read it, and the Hollows is now one of my favourite series! Rachel really grows as a character throughout, and I love the relationship between her, Jenks, and Ivy 🙂 2y
Kamisha @Bookworm54 yeah, I'm about halfway through it now and I appreciate it a lot more than I initially did! I like that it packs its own sort of unique take on the supernatural world rather than just being a twin to all the others. I love guilty pleasure urban fantasy but if it's got unique ideas too, sounds great to me! Haha 👍🏼 2y

Playing catch-up for #MayBookFlowers. My pick for #supernaturalmysteries is Kim Harrison's Hollows series, starting with Dead Witch Walking. A coworker bought this book for me to cheer me up after I had a bad day.
Witch bounty hunter Rachel Morgan, her pixie backup Jinx and vampire roommate Ivy battle demons, vampires, and all manner of supernatural creatures. They all have movie titles, and the rest are Clint Eastwood titles.

Bookwitchery Titles like, The Good, The Bad, and the Undead and Fistful of Charms. 3y

I was in need of a new urban fantasy series and so far this one is doing it for me! Looking forward to continuing on.
I especially was interested in how Rachel thinks of herself as great / non prejudiced but also displays quite a bit of prejudice to Ivy, and how the uncomfortable experience of reading that makes you really consider motivations and perception vs biases and reality.

When I learned to not feel guilty when I took time for myself, I started reading again. The Hallows was the first series I dove into.

Why do I love to recommend it? Characters I truly care about, diversity galore, and well.... Rachel, her kick ass boots, and lust life are fun. And Ivy. Tink's panties!

I know I have used this for another prompt recently, but this is a series I #ChangedMyMindAbout

I originally read the first 3 in the series. I enjoyed them, but not enough to continue with the series. I did however keep them. When I reread them a couple of years later I sped through them and NEEDED to know what happened next! 😊

Oh Rachel Morgan. So many of these characters are smart and snarky, but I'm going with Rach. This is especially apparent in Waylaid (the crossover with Peri Reed), because man is she pissed to be summoned. SHE WAS ON A DATE! 😡 haha

josie281 Waylaid was the perfect crossover. Fantastic choice! 3y

Wayne of the newer Mistborn novels is definitely on of the #bestsidekicks. Slightly cleptomanic, with a cool set of skills and always a creative curse on the lips.
Jenks, the pixie from the Hollows series has some of the best curses ever, many of them involving Tinkelbell, is another one.
Bartimaeus may be the main character of the books, but in their world he would be seen as Nathaniel's sidekick. I love Bartimaeus so I had to pick him too😍
