Quotes & Awards

  • “Bewitching…This thrill ride celebrates the can-do spirit of one of urban fantasy’s most charming witches.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Marguerite Gavin perfectly delivers Rachel’s wry tones as she is kidnapped and imprisoned on Alcatraz, awaiting a lobotomy without a fair trial. Rachel’s sardonic tones are entertainingly offset by those of a gravelly sounding gargoyle, a sultry living vampire, lighter-toned pixies, and a demon with an English accent…Gavin provides an enthralling narration for Harrison’s popular series.”

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Tanner | 2/18/2014

    " Harrison, in my opinion, continues to be a compelling author despite this being the eighth book in the Rachel Morgan series. Nick is back, which adds some fun, and there's some movement with the Jenks/Matalina side-story. The love interest isn't overly done, which I like, too. "

    " Okay, when's the next one due out???? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cher | 2/2/2014

    " Well, this series has been interesting. Only one book left and I can't wait to start it tonight. I think this ight have been the best book in the series so far. Maybe I'm biased, I really want a Trent/Rachael hook up. It's funny because as I read the books, I keep thinking that Trent will actually improve and he doesn't.Maybe I've just come except this now from him and not surprised when he does something evil to Rachael. Now Rachael's love life isn't honed to just Trent(Rachael won't admit).She has Pierce.This story isn't finished by any means but I'm still stumped for it. Although we know what he was and his past lifes, we still don't really have a feel for why he's really there. I believe Jenks, when he told Rachael to stay away from him. Jenks hasn't been wrong about the men in her life. Now Jenk's storyline made me cry. We've been expecting the death of his wive for the last few books but it was downright depressing. I love Jenk's as a character and I love that Rachael went small to help him with his grief. I'm more curious about his life now, then most of the characters.Quen and Ceri are still a mystery to me.I really have to wonder if Ceri was lying as she confessed to being a spy for her. As for Nick, I don't think I was that surprised except for Trent's being there. On to the next book... "

    " I like these books, I really do, but aren't there enough bad guys to take out and good people to save in Rachel's world? The constant, personal betrayals are getting wearing and old. "

    " Apparently I'm the only one who didn't find this book good. Maybe since I haven't read the previous books in the series or maybe cause I personally think it sucked. "

    " This is my favorite series to read!!!! I fell in love with it after I read all of the Charlaine Harris "Sookie" books. I read them no stop and over and over great series!!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrew | 3/21/2011

    " By far one of my favourites in the series, things start to take a turn for the absolute worst for Rachel. The adventure is wild and makes you crave the next book as soon as you close the back cover of this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeremy | 3/18/2011

    " I really don't want to like these books any more. The main character is high-strung, immature, and whiny, and it's clear that the hot witch/vampire lesbian romance is never going to go anywhere. I still stayed up til 1pm finishing it. Dammit. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 3/18/2011

    " Another rolicking romp by Harrison! She pulls out nearly ALL of the characters who have interacted with Rachel Morgan through the first 7 books and works them into this novel. It felt like a reunion of sorts. I wonder what's coming up in book 9? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Summer | 3/18/2011

    " I loved this book, poor Rachel just can't catch a break!! The ups and downs of this book was awesome, poor Jenks, Ivy, Al, and Pierce I love all the characters!! Can't wait for the last one to come out!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jackie | 3/17/2011

    " Why can't Rachel every stay out of trouble? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chrisy | 3/14/2011

    " I wish they would make this series into a movie already and take a pass at all the dumb vampire movies they make. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Missyb | 3/12/2011

    " non stop action. So sad what happens to Jenks, but really showed how they've become a family to each other. Al is kind of funny in this book, and the relationship between Al & Rachel is becoming interesting. "
