Hello friends! Today I have my review of The Good, The Bad, and The Undead, by Kim Harrison.
The Good, The Bad, and The Undead is the second book in the Hollows series.
Rachel Morgan, sexy witch, independent bounty hunter, prowls the downtown Cincinnati for criminal creatures of the night. She can handle leather-clad vamps and a cunning demon or two. But a serial killer who feeds on the experts in the most dangerous kind of black magic is an ancient, implacable evil that threatens her very soul.
I didn’t expect to love, like, or even enjoy The Good, The Bad, and The Undead. Before sitting down to read more of Rachel’s story, I thought that I would end up strongly disliking this book. I even put off reading The Good, The Bad, and The Undead for six weeks (6 weeks!!!) just so I would not get my hopes up..
Which brings me to say that I’m quite happy that I didn’t let my imagination run off on this novel. I’m glad I took everything at face value—I ended up liking The Good, The Bad, and The Undead more than I thought I would. I enjoyed it so much in fact, that I’m looking forward to reading the next book, whenever I get around to it.
The events that took place within The Good, The Bad, and The Undead were certainly eventful. I don’t actually recall a dull moment during this sequel. From the start of this book, everything seemed to be go-go-go. Rachel never really got anytime to rest because there were just so many circumstances thrown at her.
Rachel dealt with some serious and stressful situations in this book, but I am so, so happy that there were some fun moments as well.
The pace within this novel was great. I thought that I might’ve put this book down more than a few times, but I managed to read The Good, The Bad, and The Undead in one sitting.
I could not expect the ending to this second novel at all. Though I’m glad that ‘T’ and Rachel are on somewhat better terms than they’ve ever been before. I look forward to reading more about them both in the next book.
I never really liked this one character in Rachel’s story. His character always seemed…..grimy to me. I can tell that this character is hiding a lot of secrets so I’m quite relieved that Him and Rachel might have a falling out in the third novel.
Overall, I was quite pleased with The Good, The Bad, and The Undead. I enjoyed reading more of Rachel’s story more than I thought I would, which is always a bonus.
I’m quite glad I took the advice given to me to try and read more of the story. In the first Hollow series book, I didn’t actually like Rachel’s story enough to continue on in the series. With The Good, The Bad, and The Undead though, I’ve warmed up to Rachel and the story she tells.
I give The Good, The Bad, and The Undead, 3 stars.
The first book in the Hollows series is called Dead Witch Walking and my review of DWW is here.
