Dead Witch Walking is the first novel by Kim Harrison in her Hollows series. In heroine, Rachel Morgan’s world, we didn’t go to the moon, and we were nearly wiped out by genetically mutated tomatoes. Paranormal races live side by side with normal humans after the collapse of humanity.
Rachel Morgan is a white witch and an I.S. runner, similar to an FBI agent but they deal with supernatural aspect of the world. Her career is going nowhere, because her boss hates her, and she’s looking for a way out since quitting is not an option. When a way out comes her way Rachel jumps at the chance, and further complicates her life.
Dead Witch Walking  has a rich, vibrant, diverse cast of characters. Rachel the witch is fun and quirky, quick thinking even if she does get herself into more trouble than any one person should. Her roommate Ivy is a living vampire, she sleek and sexy and very damaged. She’s strong, and yet vulnerable. Jenks is a pixie with horde of children. He’s snarky and protective, and even though he’s tiny he’s not one to be underestimated. And the one to keep an eye one, Trent the dirty businessman and drug lord who may or may not be human.
The story is captivating from beginning to end. The plot tight, and a whole lot of fun. There are plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader guessing, from here there are plenty of opportunities for further stories.
