I’ve been on a roll, reading great paranormal mysteries that are new to me. Greywalker, by Kat Richardson, is a fresh take on that popular genre.

After a near-death experience, private investigator Harper Blaine begins seeing strange things. A strange mist seems to surround her everywhere she goes. She learns that it’s called “The Grey,” and that otherworldly beings reside there. Those beings are attracted to Harper, for some reason. And she soon finds herself talking to (and even working for) ghosts, vampires, and other strange creatures.

While at first I found the descriptives of the Grey confusing, it being another dimension of sorts, I soon realized that was part of the charm of this new series. Richardson has created a unique world. While books about vampires are popular right now, Richardson has been able to give the subgenre a different twist.

I started reading this book in the bookstore, and had to buy it then and there. I couldn’t put it down. The story was fresh and exciting. And the characters were all complex and vivid. I was pulled into the story, with its fun twists and turns.

I am much looking forward to the sequel this fall!

Thanks to Carl for the great recommendation!

  1. I’m glad you enjoyed it. I felt the same way that you did…the opening descriptions of the grey were a bit mysterious and her ignorance of what was going on went on just a tad bit too long. Other than that I thought it was a very fun book and I will snatch up the sequels as they come out.

  2. I’m reading this one as well right now. A friend who is working on a novel showed it to me with the question ‘does this sound like my novel?’

    one thing I’m enjoying is the noir quality of the writing. it’s so great.

  3. Yes! This is a lovely book, and Kat rocks. I’m actually going on a roadtrip with her and another author to Vancouver this weekend. It’s going to be the awesome Grrly Urban Fantasy Writers Adventure!

  4. I saw this at the bookstore, but haven’t gotten it yet. But I know I will, it even has the recommendation of one of my favorite authors on it; Charlaine Harris.

    Right now I’m waiting for Patricia Brigg’s sequel to Moon Called, which is due at the end of the month. I can’t wait!

  5. Katie – I’ll be looking forward to hear what you think too.

    Vicki – The cover is great.. That alone would have made me want to read it!

    Richelle – That is too fun! Hope to hear about it on your blog…

    Amy – That’s my job. LOL

    SQT – Waiting on the sequels can be torture!
