Cover of Dead Witch Walking (Rachel Morgan 1)
Blood Work by Kim Harrison
Blood Work is Kim Harrison’s journey into graphic novels, and I’ll be honest I’ve never been one for the normal graphic novels. I have an uncle that introduced me to the dark graphic novels but I only read a few of his when I visited him and my aunt. It’s no wonder that I got into the darker graphics look at how I write, . Kim’s venture into graphic novels was right up my alley. It was dark just the way I like it, granted it is a prequel to Dead Witch Walking the first book in the Hollows Series. However, Kim changes things up a bit in Blood Work with a POV change from Rachel’s, in the main Hollows Series to Ivy’s. Now we really get to see the change Rachel has made in her over the years as her character has grown.
In Blood Work, she truly was a hard as nails bitch attitude always following the rules the vamps set for her, especially Piscary. There’s a lot of history within the 166 pages, Ivy’s history. Kim wrote a six chapter graphic novel and it’s full of rich back story we’ve been dying to know and you don’t want to miss it. You’ll learn about Ivy and Rachel’s first run. How they bumped heads from the get go. Denton’s issues also there from the beginning. You’ll see Kisten in color, though in my head he was cuter. Watch Rachel work her magic and you even get a look at Trent though you don’t know its Trent officially. But who else is called “Sa’Han.” Sorry no Jinx maybe in the next one.
There’s also really cool information from pages 151 – 161 about how the graphic novel was created, the creators, sketches and much more. Kim chose the right artist to work with when she took on this project and with those artists they made a wonderful graphic novel. So make sure you check out this addition to the Hollow Series and add it to your collection.
Monday while heading home from CA, I finished my review of Kitty’s Greatest Hit’s by Carrie Vaughn I just have to type it up and send it off to PBD. I also started and am almost finished with my review of Drink Deep I just need to add some finishing touches. Today over at PBD my review of Blood Work by Kim Harrison is posted. On Friday my review of The Help, will be posted and on Sunday the Dolls will be catching up with me. So check out the latest article. I’m not sure which one will be posted I turned in three. November with the Dolls is going to be stalked full of fun books and authors so be on the lookout.
Also stay tuned for more info on Team Makenzie, while we’re at the JDRF they were doing a documentary and Mak got put in it.

I’ll try to have the reviews up for Blood Work this week now that the Dolls have posted it. My review for The Help will be up after Friday and as soon as I have finished with the little touches I want to add to Drink Deep I’ll post it. But all sure be up before Sunday.
I wrote this months articles for the Paperback Dolls, there’s two of them. There not every long but I think you’re going to enjoy them. I sent them in tonight. I also sent in my review for Blood Work, Kim Harrison’s graphic novel. So be on the look out for those over at Paperback Dolls. Tomorrow the Doll have Ghost Story posted so stop by and check out my review and see what else the doll have going on.
This weekend I’ll be working on my review of The Help and hopefully I’ll be able to read a few more stories that I’ve been trying to read. The new Castle novel just came out and I still need to finish book two. I’ve been reading Carrie Vaughn’s short stories and I’ll be writing a review about the book as a whole. So far the book is pretty good. Plus we have so many new books coming out I can’t wait.
Now why I said articles, reviews & a bath well as you know Flyboy and I have Jax, our puppy we adopted after Artemis passed away, well today he decided to jump into the pond behind our house. There were geese in the pond and he wanted to chase them, so he jumped in, got all wet and stinky and now needs a bath. Holly thankfully didn’t jump in but she did scare the geese away. Pups what to do with them. So needless to say Jax hasn’t been allowed to do much today since he’s dirty. I swear I have a two year old.
