Author: Kat Richardson
Premise: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.
According to Me:
This book jumps in right off because Richardson introduces main character Harper, and then kills her off in a violent manner. Harper Blaine is a Private investigator. After her run in with death, she starts seeing things. Harper is independent, willful and sometimes in denial. Harper is still human and dropped into a world she doesn’t want to deal with and have no idea how to deal with. The whole story was unique in the way she had Harper continue her job as a P.I, the normal, ‘human’ way to investigate her cases. The two cases that she is on ultimately become more then the run of the mill types that she gets. But she keeps on. I did like how Richardson introduced her idea of a vamp. Her vampire is manipulative, scary. 3 out of the 5 shown have different abilities, and different ways of going about their life…unlife? The story is believable in a gritty type of way. I love how a lot of the side characters gave great support but hinted at have an awesome back story that Harper needs to delve into.
There were a couple parts that grated at me, but did not slow down my frenzied devouring of this book. Mainly because I hoped some of my questions would get answers but never did. The romance was a little bit thrown in and I kept expecting more from Quinton.
I give this a five rating, because I did enjoy this book.
