By now most people know that the Bottle Nose Dolphin is pretty much one of the biggest assholes in the animal kingdom You know, for randomly hunting down and stalking and killing porpoises, sharks and baby dolphins for no other reason than the pure joy of murdering them in cold blood and so that then can then go off and rape other dolphins.However, the African Bat Bug could easily surpass the dolphin as one of nature s biggest bastards Male Bat Bugs seem to have decided one day to pass over the [...]
Kim Harrison Image from Google In an alternate near past, humans have been much reduced as a result of unanticipated problems with bioengineered tomatoes One result is that non humans, immune to the created virus, have become the dominant culture, witches, werewolves, vampires, the usual gang of idiots The main character here is Rachel, a witch who is contracted with the security organization responsible for policing the magical population Her assignments are called runs In such runs she goes af [...]
3.5 shadowed stars My head tells me 3 stars, but my heart says 4 Which makes an average of 3.5 but you knew that already WOW.Yes, that is the reaction I had after starting Dead Witch Walking great title by the way I was so surprised while discovering every creature this book contains There are witches, vampires, trolls apparently, fairies, PIXIES PIXIES guys There are PIXIES Plus, one of them is an important character of the story I m talking about this one On the left, we have Ivy vampire and o [...]
2 7 18 ON SALE for 2.99 amzn 2fZD4j8Reviewed by Rabid ReadsThe Hollows is another one of the first Urban Fantasy series I ever read The bug had gotten me, but I was still new enough to not really know what was available I think I was just pursuing every lead gave me, and that was back in the 3 for 4 paperbacks days, so I was in the habit of ordering the first four books in any newly discovered series.Which was a good plan, b c by the time I finished Dead Witch Walking, I was well and truly hooke [...]
Every review of this series talks about it being one of the best Urban Fantasies out there, and I have to admit that the world in this one is pretty awesome I liked everything about the world.So, why the three stars Because I have a little pet peeve with something that I can easily spot for the future of this series And, yes, I have so many book pet peeves that my house smells like a pet peeve litter box, but still I can t resist their cute little faces.I know this one doesn t go THAT well, but [...]
Don t let the cover, description, cover reviews, or hell, even the title throw you off on this one It looks like a cheesy paperback Possibly even a twisted romance novel, but believe me it s not.It takes place in a world where instead of going to the moon, money went into bioengineering Of course something went wrong a virus got out, in tomatoes Like a plague it started wiping out humans, Inlanders however people and beings with mystical abilities, witches, weres, pixies etc were immune Well exc [...]
Buddy read with the MacHalo group in June 2016.Ooops, I m going to bail on this one, sorry guys Urban fantasy is just not doing it for me these days, and since I ve already read this series and it d be a re read anyway, I don t feel too bad PQuick generic review, though if you like urban fantasies, this is hands down one of the best series in the genre, overall Some books aren t as strong as others, but it only gets better I know that can be annoying, but with this series, I think my favorite bo [...]
Book, you have the right to a speedy trial reviewTHE DEFENSE Lead heroine is funny and engaging, yet also flawed enough to feel real I felt I could relate whenever Rachel Morgan did something stupid when book characters screw up, it makes me feel not as bad for doing at least 8,000 stupid things a day That s an exaggeration, of course I only do 7,999 stupid things a day tops I also loved the supporting cast Ivy the vampire is moody yet oh so adorable, Keasley never loses his cool, and Jenks the [...]
Dead Witch Walking is the first installment of The Hollows series by Kim Harrison It is an excellent opening book of the series it is intriguing with the right balance of action, mystery, and humor.The main character, Rachel Morgan, a witch, works as a runner at Inderland Security , but now quits her job to start her own business partnering with a vampire and a pixy.The story is about her struggle as she tries to get rid of the bounty was put on her head by her ex boss, and gain her independence [...]
Hated, hated, hated this book Rachel Morgan got on my last nerve, and by the end, I was ready for her to get killed However, her partners Jinx and Ivy were loads of fun.
In spite of the moderately engaging beginning, Dead Witch Walking finally lost me by about page 100 Unfortunately, no Rachel Morgan for me.On the bright side, there is a potential in this series I recently abandoned a couple of UF series because of the barenness of their worlds In this book the mythology behind the story is rich You never feel like the characters walk and interact in vacuum that s how I felt reading Some Girls Bite and Halfway to the Grave Whatever is written about the Turn, wi [...]
First to you who like this, I m sorry We can t all like the same books.I picked this up because it was recommended on the What to read while you re waiting for the next Dresden book thread So First I m not a romance fan to begin with and I can pretty much say that I dislike every PNR paranormal romance I ve ever accidentally picked up Now, I can hear some of you saying, but this isn t PNR At least the recommendation I went with said it wasn t But if it s not, it s close enough for me.I almost pu [...]
I m going with a high 3 stars maybe 3.75 I really enjoyed the world created by the author and I liked the comic touches in places For than half the book, I was finding it all very entertaining and pretty fast paced But I felt the book went on too long and I was starting to wonder if this Rachel was just annoying for making so many bad decisionsI liked the Trent character and hope to see of him Clearly there s to him than meets the eye Nick I didn t really take to Jenks is okay for now but cou [...]
Erok So this is not going to be a complimentary review, as you ve probably already guessed by the rating I am a character driven reader I don t necessarily have to love a character to bits, but if I can get behind him her, then I will come along for the ride, and be willing to overlook a lot of things, like faulty plotting If I don t like the character, well, then I enjoy the book less, and become somewhat cranky I notice choppy plotting not very good writing.I am not a plot driven reader, but s [...]
4.5 5 stars singing Attttaccccccckkkk of the killer tomatoes How can I resist starting this review without that lovely song I can t say I ve ever read a book with so much tomato hate Genetically mutated tomatoes have caused much havoc to the human world in the Rachel Morgan universe, and that sets up an interesting world where humans live with pixies, witches, vampires, and other creatures of the night After I finished the book, I read a lot of reviews on where people strongly disliked the book [...]
I liked this series a lot but around book 4 it petered off for me I need to get back on the horse.
Imagine a world where every kind of supernatural creature was walking out in the streets without a care in the world about being seen by a human.Well, after a disease enhanced by biodrugs because of course us, humans, are pretty stupid at the end of the day, okay wiped out most humans and the supernatural was forced to come to light since they were immune to it, the world is mostly run by the supernatural considering how they ve come to outnumber us And overpower us There s definitely that, too. [...]
Re read it for work related purposes And actually, it was much better the second time around Or maybe Anita Blake s obnoxiousness simply desensitized me Rachel is still dumb, but at least I like all the other characters, or at least I find them interesting enough to keep me going 08 07 01 This book is lame, there is no other way how to say it Rachel Morgan, the main heroine, is a little miss know it all and at the same time she is embarrassingly stupid She considers herself a good runner a sort [...]
OK so the most telling thing for me about this book is that it took me OVER A WEEK to read it It was not a page turner, and I just couldn t get through it any faster It wasn t a bad book, it just wasn t gripping At all Things picked up once Rachel turned into a mink, but that happens halfway through I found the whole relationship between Ivy and Rachel and all of Rachel s constant angst about Ivy quite tiresome I kept wanting to shout at the book make up your mind, trust her or don t trust her, [...]
On a scale of 1 to done I m Me trying to get a grasp on this book Me every time Rachel opened her mouth so yeah, I could go on but I think you get the point There was so much potential ithurt But by the end I was doing some heavy skimming and only went on because I was close to finishing anyways I just really couldn t get into this one This book just wasn t for me, sadly.
What can I say that hasn t been said The action was good, not great, but good At the end it got way better, but still not as good as some books I gave 4 stars in UF Some parts were really slow, specially at the beginning And the fact that it has no romance at all was something that bothered me It s not only that it has no romance, she doesn t even get interested in someone.I was expecting much form this book as everybody was talking about this series, I mean it was a good read, and reading abou [...]
Zabavno, uzbudljivo, na momente i vrcavoMnogo bolje od True Blood serijala, a Rej el Morgan je svakako dopadljivija i duhovitija od Suki Stekhaus A i bolja je enska U ivancija
This is the second time I read this book The first time I did, it left me absolutely unimpressed Worse, it pretty much bore me to death and I thought it was only worth a two star rating So how did I go from giving this book two stars a year ago to giving it four stars today like a 3.5 actually The audio version Marguerite Gavin is a fantastic narrator and she makes all the difference here Where the book was boring, she makes it exciting and lively It did take me some time to get used to Ivy s v [...]
3.5 Solid Series Start StarsWhenever I m starting a new series that is than 3 books long I don t expect a lot from the first book I only expect it to give me a taste of the world and the main characters As I dip my toe into the Hallows pool to get a feel for the series I m hopeful The characters are intriguing and show promise, there are plenty of hints of things to come without really giving anything major away and the world was interesting enough that I might want to visit it multiple times S [...]
I was given this book as a gift The Hollows book 1 First, the back blurb All the creatures of the night gather in the Hollows of Cincinnati, to hide, to prowl, to partyd to feed Vampires rule the darkness in a predator eat predator world rife with dangers beyond imagining and it s 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, deador undead It s been a while since I ve read a back blurb that said so [...]
I loved this book, and was moved to write by the string of two star reviews I was grabbed from the beginning by the fast pace and seamless world building I found it well crafted, with a thumping fast adventure pace, well placed mysteries, mis directions and clues, and rare resorts to info dumping to make the world come alive.The heroine is credible, far from omni competent or a Mary Sue, as befits a young woman just striking out on her own professionally She makes mistakes, learns from them, str [...]
Re Read in 2017 3 StarsI read this book for the first time back in 2015 and loved it but than I never continued the series for some reason Renewed determination to attempt this series again I decided to refresh my knowledge of the characters and story by giving it the old re read I forgot how much I enjoyed these characters especially the two side characters Ivy and Jenkins Ivy is my literary girl crush She s a vampire with asian features I imagine Gemma Chan as this character She s is cold, col [...]
genetically modified tomatoes This is a review of the audiobook I truly enjoyed Marguerite Gavin s narration of this first in The Hollows series, giving the first person narrative for witch Rachel Morgan who is a bounty hunter come private detective great inflection, tone, and pacing Nice differentiation of other voices, too I m looking forward to listening to of her readings as I continue the series And I m definitely continuing the series I just loved this book I thought KH s alternate histor [...]
Reviewed for Wickedly Bookishwickedlybookish I actually liked this a lot than I was expecting Dead Witch Walking starts out slow, and I mean very slow It takes about the first 100 pages for the plot to begin in earnest and another 50 for the action to start Once the action gains some momentum, it doesn t stop until the end of the book There are many negative reviews for this book here on , and I have to agree with most of them that it suffers from the first book in the series syndrome and has s [...]
kinda a combo of the sookie stackhouse series and the anita blake series.just hope i doesn t suffer the same fate.i re read the book now and still like it, it s a really good start to a seriesd i ve read others in the series and the books stay good.
