There's no witch in Cincinnati tougher, sexier, or more screwed up than bounty hunter Rachel Morgan, who's already put her love life and soul in dire jeopardy through her determined efforts to bring criminal night creatures to justice.
Between "runs," she has her hands full fending off the attentions of her blood-drinking partner, keeping a deadly secret from her backup, and resisting a hot new vamp suitor.
Rachel must also take a stand in the war that's raging in the city's underworld, since she helped put away its former vampire kingpin - and made a deal with a powerful demon to do so that could cost her an eternity of pain, torment, and degradation.
And now her dark "master" is coming to collect his due.
Rachel, Ivy, Jenks, Kisten, Al and Trent are all back in Every Which Way But Dead.
Rachel is a mess and I love every minute of it. Let’s see when we last saw her, she has received couple of demon marks from Al and she promised to be his familiar if he would help her bring Piscary to justice. So naturally Rachel’s been trying to avoid Al by not going into the Ever After. Oh and she made her boyfriend, Nick her familiar by mistake.
After Rachel scares the crap out of Nick by using him as her familiar he’s been distance which has left Rachel feeling lonely and hurt. But have no fear there’s always other (better IMO) guys around that are both sexy and bad boys. Namely a sexy blonde vamp named Kisten and an elven business man, Trent.
Don’t worry. Rachel Morgan is no Anita Blake. She doesn’t juggle multiple men in her bed. She’s just a witch that’s good at her job as a runner (paranormal bounty hunter) but sucks (no pun intended) in the personal life department.
Rachel works a case and makes her life even more complaint. Will she never learn? If you like your heroines on the witchy side and just a little clueless (in a good way) then check out The Hollows series. It has a bit of everything from witches, pixies, vampires, weres, demons and fae.
I’m continuing to enjoy Gavin’s narration of Rachel and the other characters. Her voice, tone and pacing is perfect for this series. I don’t know that I would enjoy the books more if I read them. This is a series I will experience through audio to the end.
After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.
While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).
