I loved it. The world was interesting and characters amazing. This book had mystery, action, and friendship. Rachel was such a flawed character, she was so impulsive, never had a descent plan, and constantly needed rescuing but to my surprise I still liked her. Ivy's motives were hazy, she was so se...

First half of the book is mostly world building. Very slow....a bit boring.

I really liked Harrison's The Drafter, which came out last year and was ignored by everyone because publishing is a remorseless bitch. So I thought I'd go back and read the book that put her on the map. Alas, I didn't like this at all. There's some first time novelist mistakes I'm willing to overloo...

It's really hard post-hoc reviewing books that begin long-running series you've already read. It's too easy to overlook things that gave pause on first read, or were unclear, because you know where it's going. On the other hand, it's sometimes hard to see the really clever flourishes in the world-bu...

Rating: 2.5 out of 5 Stars. This was totally not what I was expecting. I had no idea I was in for a YA book, from the look of the cover. Dead Witch Walking begins hitting the road running, full of funny anecdotes and situations, but then I tripped on the worldbuilding. There were just so many dif...

I'd never read Kim Harrison before. I picked the book because Margaurite Gavin is the narrator and I normally enjoy what she reads. By the end of "Dead Witch Walking" I was convinced that Kim Harrison had created the basis for a strong Urban Fantasy series. Her imagining of an alternative earth...

I guess if you can get past the fact that Rachel Morgan is certainly not the brightest bulb in the box I guess this could be a rather enjoyable story for you. Personally I feel that the book was not as good as it could have been due to the constant fumbling, stumbling and general “wimpiness” of the ...

I'm a big fan of the Dresden Files books by Jim Butcher so I really loved this book. I can't wait to get into the rest of the series. I love the characters and their interplay. Who knew pixies and fairies were mortal enemies and that pixies were so tough? The concept of two types of vampires, living...

This is my buddy read that I am doing with Moonlight Reader. You can read her update and review at the following links: Updated here. Review here. Wow. I think that if I was not reading this as a buddy read with Moonlight I would just skip this series. There are so many other well written urban fan...

So, Obsidian Blue & I are buddy reading The Hollows - one book every two weeks is the general plan, but we'll see how things go. She's been busy, I've been busy. Shit happens, right? Anyway, Dead Witch Walking is the first book of the series. I thought I had read it before, but now having actually...
