Kim Harrison: Dead Witch Walking

Brought to you by OBS staff member Katie

Book One: The Hollows 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. (From Amazon)

I’m so glad that I found this series. Dead Witch Walking is well written, fun, and humorous. You really get to know and love the characters.  There’s paranormal and mystery with a touch of romance, what more could I ask for? After reading a fair amount of most books I can normally predict the outcome, but I have to say that Kim Harrison does a great job of keeping it a secret with all her twist and turns.

If you’re looking for a fresh new series this is a must read. It will keep you up till the wee hours.
