Every Which Way But Dead, by Kim Harrison

At first glance Rachel Morgan is doing pretty well as a magic
mercenary. She is making enough to cover her rent, kicked the
local vampire crime boss's ass and is learning ley line magic. But
there are some major flaws, such as ending up as a demon's
familiar, scaring her boyfriend away, and the fact that her
roommate has gone back to drinking blood. Plus, you know, all
the local evil trying to do her in.

I'm really enjoying this series. The dialogue is perfectly timed
and sometimes makes me laugh out loud because it is so
perfectly fitted with the characters. My only tiny complaint with
this book is that it felt a little rushed.

I like that this series isn't as if it was one really long book cut
into sections. Each book has some parts carried over, but gives
you enough info it could be almost stand-alone as well. It
makes it less frustrating when you can't get a hold of the next
book quite as quickly as you wish.
5 stars,
