Vanished, by Kat Richardson, is 4th in the Greywalker series.
Harper Blaine solves all kinds of weird and creepy cases as a Seattle P.I. When she died for two minutes, Harper became a Greywalker and has been seeing all sorts of dead creatures ever since. When a former (and dead) old flame contacts Harper about her past, she decides to go investigate her father’s death. And she’s shocked when she hears the truth. Then, head vampire Edward sends her to England to investigate a missing vampire colleague. She goes, if only to check up on Will, another former (living) boyfriend of whom she’s been having strange dreams.
In this latest installment, we get a deeper look into Harper’s past and what helped to shape her into the person she is – her demanding and overly-dramatic mother, her father’s tragic death, and other childhood trauma. And as events unfold in this story, Harper discovers that someone has been pulling the strings behind the scenes for a while. She discovers more about her father and more about her destiny as a Greywalker.
There are plenty of twists and surprises in this story, coupled with fantastic characters that make for exciting reading. Harper travels from Seattle to L.A. to London along her journey of discovery. And Richardson’s narrative gives the reader a feeling of being right there with Harper. Vanished is full of thrills, chills and mystery. And this is easily my favorite in the series so far. Greywalker a unique urban fantasy series that won’t disappoint.
