Daring You To Read

Daring You to Read

This is another new feature I decided to add to the blog this year.  It’s hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and it’s ultimate goal is to help other readers discover books that they might not have noticed before.  For a full break down of how the meme works please click HERE or on the button above.

 

My first entry into the Daring You to Read arena is going to be Kim Harrison’s Dead Witch Walking, book one in the Hollows series.  This series sits in the number 1 spot of my all time favorite series list.  Mrs. Harrison has managed to create a story with amazing characters, incredible world building and storylines that’ll leave you emotionally and physically exhausted….in a  really, really good way.  So do yourselves a favor and go pick up a copy of Dead Witch Walking.  I promise you’ll be hooked within the first few pages.

The underground population of witches, vampires, werewolves—creatures of dreams and nightmares—has lived beside humans for centuries, hiding their powers. But after a genetically engineered virus wipes out a large part of humanity, many of the "Inderlanders" reveal themselves, changing everything.

Rachel Morgan, witch and bounty hunter with the Inderland Runner Services, is one of the best at apprehending supernatural lawbreakers throughout Cincinnati, but when it comes to following the rules, she falls desperately short. Determined to buck the system, she quits and takes off on the run with an I.S. contract on her head and is reluctantly forced to team up with Ivy, Inderland's best runner . . . and a living vampire. But this witch is way out of her league, and to clear her name, Rachel must evade shape-changing assassins, outwit a powerful businessman/crime lord, and survive a vicious underground fight-to-the-death . . . not to mention her own roommate.

 

Not completely sold?  Check out what my friend Smash Attack Ash had to say about the series.
