Dead witch walking

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. (bookcover)

This is the first novel in the Hollows serie.

In this world the creatures of the night (Inderlanders) live knowingly amongst humans. They were discovered when humans created a virus with geneticley modefied tomatos. The virus almost wiped out human-kind and vampires alike. Witches and like stood out because they were imune. Most Inderlanders now live in the Hollows.

Rachel Morgan is a witch and after quitting the I.S. she gets in a lot of trouble. Her vampire co-worker (the best of the I.S.) quits with her and her boss isn't happy about it and puts a dead treat on her head. Now she has to avoid being killed, find a way to pay of the dead treat and she is starting her own business with Ivy a vampire and Jenks a pixie. They end up living together in a church. To try to pay of the dead treat she goes after Trent Kalamack a drug dealer.

Rachel is stubborn and doesn't think before she acts, she rejects help from her friends, but keeps ending up saved by them. The chemistry between Rachel and Ivy is great and Jenks is downright funny.

The story is good, but the first half of the book was really slow. Towards the end of the book it gets a lot better. The story is fast paced and has a lot af action.
The end makes me wonder what will happen next to Rachel, Ivy and Jenks. And though this book was a bit hard to read I will read the next one to see what will happen to them.

Rating: 3/5
