Dead Witch Walking, by Kim Harrison
First book in what looks like a promising series, Rachel is a
witch and works for Inderland Security. She is basically a
supernatural cop. However she is not in her boss's good graces,
and finally, sick of dull and insulting jobs she decides to quit.
Quitting the IS isn't recommended if you like being alive though,
the last guy to quit was found mysteriously blown up. Rachel
now has hit men and evil fairies trying to kill her, a vamp
housemate who claims to not drink blood anymore and a pixy
with a bad temper living in her backyard.
I was a bit on the fence about this one. Although the characters
are great, the plot was wandering at times and I wasn't loving
the writing, it seemed a bit flat. I'll give the next book a try
though in hopes that it improves.
4 stars, Emme
