Dead Witch Walking

Updated: 20 hours ago

Times Read: 5+


Excerpt: "All the creatures of the night gather in "the Hollows" of Cincinnati, to hide, to prowl, to party... and 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, dead... or undead."


My Rambles: OK so I've been reading this series since high school and only make it to like book 5 or so before putting it down for too long and then restart it because by time I'm trying to read I've forgotten everything. Soooo that's why I've read it so much lol but I do love it. (day job is letting me listen to audiobooks so I'm burning through what I have available) Listening to it, I was able to pinpoint: "oh that's an influence" moments. I swear if you pay attention and read both mine and hers, you can see that I'm heavily influence by her. (clearly I love it cause I have a tattoo for this series [that's also a bff tat])


I've been arguing with a friend that started this book and put it down, swearing that "nothing happens" "it's not cohesive" "the character doesn't have a main goal"

and I just....don't agree, at all. So much happens in this book (which is saying something since I have 5 of them smooshed together in my brain lol) Rachel is literally running from assassination attempts, idk how one can expect her to go through a "normal" day-to-day. I feel like staying alive is a clear goal. But eh to each their own.


Ivy's intense focus on Rachel has piqued my interest. I forgot how almost obsessive she was and Nick pointed out how she was "hunting" her and it made sense. I can't recall if there's an answer and it makes me excited (again) to read the next one. Jenks is a massive delight and I love him. So much sass in a 4" being. I feel bad with this read through, I have constantly forgotten that Kinsley was an older black man. I know that it shouldn't matter, people are people, he shouldnt have to operate through stereotypes for me to know that, etc. I just hate that I never remember. I love him, he's great, he feels like family and a character that I've trusted since book one with ease. Speaking of trust [major spoiler towards next books, read at own risk] I absolutely hate Nick and rereading reminds me of that every time and makes me want to put the book down so I don't have to acknowledge him. I hate that Rachel trusted him so easily, so readily, even though he has red flags all around him.
