Book Description

April 22 2008 Hollows (Book 1)

The underground population of witches, vampires, werewolves—creatures of dreams and nightmares—has lived beside humans for centuries, hiding their powers. But after a genetically engineered virus wipes out a large part of humanity, many of the "Inderlanders" reveal themselves, changing everything.

Rachel Morgan, witch and bounty hunter with the Inderland Runner Services, is one of the best at apprehending supernatural lawbreakers throughout Cincinnati, but when it comes to following the rules, she falls desperately short. Determined to buck the system, she quits and takes off on the run with an I.S. contract on her head and is reluctantly forced to team up with Ivy, Inderland's best runner . . . and a living vampire. But this witch is way out of her league, and to clear her name, Rachel must evade shape-changing assassins, outwit a powerful businessman/crime lord, and survive a vicious underground fight-to-the-death . . . not to mention her own roommate.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Bases for a series July 3 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I like the world that Harrison writes in. I like the people that parade around in it. I like Rachel a tough head strong woman. Ivy, Jenks, Trent are all good characters to base a series with.
I like the Ivy/Rachel relationship in the story but that falls flat, it's a tease, it's like the author just dropped it all together for a more conventional romance.
The biggest problem I had with this book is the last part of the book. I felt that the author brought in a character, Nick, just to bring in a typical romance hero good, appearing, guy, who Rachel falls for instantly and trusts without reservation. I just felt that introduction of the character brought strong confident Rachel to be a weak kneed romance heroine. I believe that Harrison can remedy that in the next book, and I'm looking forward to it.
I would strongly recommend this book because it will be a part of a series and the world is solid, the characters with the exception of Nick, are all strong and worth the time to get invested in them.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
This entire series by Kim Harrison is mind-blowing. We are thrown into a world of humanity that has greatly suffered from a virus spread through the average tomato. Much of humanity dies, only those know as Inderlanders survive, the ones that have tried to stay hidden and out of the human eye. Humans must accept that elves, witches, warlocks, and much more of the old, thought to be fairytales are in fact true.

Rachel, along with her partner Ivy and Jenks, must break free of their IS contracts, start their own buisness, and just try to survive day to day life, without bitting one another, or placing spells on one another. They must fight those whose only goal in life is to get richer, like Trent, and those that want to see them fail.

The characters are greatly developed, and have actual depth. The plot is easy to understand and in the end, everything is wrapepd up, just in time for "Every Which Way But Dead", "The Good, The Bad, and The Undead","A Fistful of Charms", and "For a Few Demons More".

Though the end of the series appears to wrap itself up, we can only hope that Kim will take pen to paper again, and continue writing this series, through a book 6.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot damn this was good! July 5 2005
By Saya
Format:Mass Market Paperback else to put this, but WOW! I hadn't figured on liking it as much as I did. It's a great book! If you like the quirkiness and hijinks of Stephanie Plum and the horror/fantasy aspect of a Anita Blake world, then you'll love Kim Harrison's Dead Witch Walking, the first in the Rachel Morgan story (2 books follow this one).
It was one of those books where you know it's 3 a.m. and you have to get to work at 8 a.m. but hell, just one more chapter, right? Wrong! Warning: This book can keep you up all night! It took 2 days to read thanks to such interuptions as work, sleep, and other inconviences.
I love the way Harrison writes, the story doesn't drag despite the fact that she has so much information to inpart on a new world she's created for us. It's fun to read, the characters are likeable (some not) and realistic. It's not a story of happy endings and it does end with a not so subtle "be the continued" but if you like serial novels such as Stephanie Plum and Anita Blake where the stories flow from one book to another you'll love this book. It's imaginative, creative, funny, and makes you beg for the next installment.

4.0 out of 5 stars When A Kiss Is Just A Bite July 7 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Kim Harrison's debut novel about a young police witch who decides to strike out as an independent, comes as something of a pleasant surprise. Certainly, there has been no lack of tough magician/detective stories in the years since Laurell K Hamilton, Jim Butcher, and some of the urban fantasy crowd moved into the genre. Detective fantasy is a small niche at best, but the overall quality has been good, with only a few wobbles lately. But just when I thought the genre dead, along comes this effort, and the story shows much promise and only a few imperfections.
I'm not going to pretend that the book's premises are spectacularly original. Harrison's world is one where magic and the occult were always there, but until a bio-engineered virus wiped out half of the 'normal' folk, the occult world stayed carefully hidden. Now it is a world divided - in this case the normals live in Cincinnati proper and the 'spooks' live across the river in The Hollows. The Hollows is part of the Interland, where technology and medicine are suspect and you never know when you might get hit with a bad spell. Interland Security spends its time hunting down ill-behaved vampires, werewolves who shift out of season, and black magicians.
Rachel Morgan is a police runner down on her luck and not getting a lot of respect from her management. She's been relegated to second-rate assignments and only a down and out pixie will work at her side. Instructed to bring in a blackmailing leprechaun she gets offered three wishes and decides it's time to go independent. To her surprise Ivy, an unturned Vampire and expert runner, and Jenks, a pixie with a strong case of obnoxious attitude, decide to join her. This infuriates Rachel's ex-boss, and he takes out a contract on her.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful
I bought this book and I really thought it would be a good book. Did not like it. Normally I finish every book I start. I gave up SPOILER ALERT when Ivy almost bit her.

2.0 out of 5 stars Derivative and disappointing
I borrowed this series from the library because it was touted as being similar to Jim Butcher's and Laurell K. Hamilton's. Well, there is similar, and then there is stealing! Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Start
I would equate this novel with the first X Men film. It was good, but most of the story was spent on introducing characters and settings for future sequels instead of on plot. Read more
