The Good, the Bad, and the Undead - Kim Harrison

This was loads better than Dead Witch Walking, not just in story line and characters but also in the general feel to the writing.  I was a little iffy going into this book because I just did not understand the hype to this series after finishing book 1 but I finally started to see glimmers of why so many love this series so much.   I can't wait to see more out of Rachel.  And Trent.. I think I'm going to like him.
