Pretty fun romp into a unique urban fantasy world. I like the characters but for right now they seem a little shallow. Not annoying just not multi-dimensional. I'll read the next book to get more deeply into the story and the people. ( )

A witch, a vamp, and a pixie walk into a bar, and leave with a detective agency. Oh, and tomatoes are lethal to humans in this world, so goodbye pizza... ( )

Fans of Sookie Stackhouse will definitely enjoy this. It has a lot of the same elements of the "other" becoming exposed to the human race. This dabbles a bit faster in the realm of fairies and weres though.

I liked it. I hated the writing style but most people aren't reading this kind of book for the language so I tried to put that aside. The story was good although I really thought that one of the characters who was acting sketchy would come through with a good twist at the end and he didn't which was weird to me. Maybe that comes later in the series.

The characters are consistent although I kept forgetting what the big deal with tomatoes was and it was annoying to me how Ivy was so moody and I was annoyed about all the rules about vampires. I also didn't really get how witches were different than humans since they went to school to become witches. So...it's just education that makes them different?

Overall a good read for vampire fans, which I'm not really. I like Sookie Stackhouse though mostly because of True Blood. For me I would rather read Sookie but for those who have read all of those already, this is a more urban read.

DNF at Chapter 5, page 64. I couldn't get into it. Rachel Morgan just doesn't compare to Harry Dresden or Kate Daniels or Merry Gentry.

Also, I was really thrown by the following descriptions, on page 13:

"Her slightly Oriental cast gave her an enigmatic look, upholding my belief that most models had to be vamps."

"Her hair was a smooth dark wave, accenting her pale skin and oval-shaped face. No matter what she did with her hair, it made her look exotic."

Only cool thing, for me, was the world being set in Cincinnati, Ohio.

I stood in the shadows of a deserted shop front across from The Blood and Brew Pub, trying not to be obvious as I tugged my black leather pants back up where they belonged.
