Just finished reading GREYWALKER by Kat Richardson. I received the book from a Kelly Gay blog contest. My name was randomly drawn. I got some other cool stuff too. I just bounced back from Kelly's blog. I let her know that it's her fault I had to order book 2 in the GREYWALKER series - POLTERGEIST.

It seems I'm behind in this series. The books in order are:


I was lucky enough to find books three and four at my local bookstore. Which is no small feat considering four Borders stores are closing right here in NC. I contacted Kat Richardson because I couldn't find books one and two in hardcover. She informed me that the first two did not come out in hardcover. Oh the pain! I'm a nerdy book collector and it's driving me crazy having part of a series in mass market paperback and the rest in hardcover. ROC, can you say special order please.

I had to special order some of Laurell K Hamilton's books to complete my hardcover collection. Which by the way, all of my friends have been pushing me to stop collecting hardcovers and switch over to a kindle or a nook. No such luck people. I can not get over having the actual book in my hot little hand.

Without further distractions, here's my review. Well, first of all, GREYWALKER must be pretty good if I've already brought book three and four with POLTERGEIST on the way.

Here's the write up from Kat's site:

Recovering from a near-fatal accident, Seattle Private Investigator Harper Blaine develops the ability to move through the Grey: the realm of ghosts, vampires, witches, and magic that exists between our world and the next. Harper wants her life to return to normal, but when her clients turn out to be paranormal, the reluctant GREYWALKER is drawn into the affairs of ambitious vampires and angry ghosts. As her cases converge, Harper uncovers a plot that threatens Seattle’s Grey world and must choose between honor and survival.

I loved the GREYWALKER idea. A living person that can enter and move through the grey where paranormal creatures live. Just that one idea alone makes for some very interesting possibilities. I found myself reading into wee hours of the morning scared to put GREYWALKER down. I didn't want to leave Harper hanging in a potential deadly situation. There are enough twists and turns, vampires and magic to keep the plot moving along nicely. There were a couple of times I had to re-read a couple of passages because they were a bit overwhelming with descriptions of the paranormal. but, over all I really enjoyed this one. Like I said. I'm set. I've got books 1, 3, 4 with book 2 on the way. I'd definitely recommend this to my friends.
