Pacific Northwest Paranormal: Greywalker

September 18th, 2011 Posted in Fantasy, Fiction, Kelly, Urban Fantasy

I’m a sucker for novels and TV shows set in the Pacific Northwest, and so when I heard about Kat Richardson’s Greywalker, I had to pick it up since it’s set in Seattle.

Private investigator Harper Blaine dies for two minutes, and after being resuscitated she becomes a greywalker. She can see into the grey, a sort of alternate plane for ghosts and other paranormal creatures that go bump in the night.  When she takes on a case to find missing college student, her investigation takes her into the world of vampires.

Greywalker is a good choice for adult fans of paranormal fiction. The private investigator set-up works quite well, as it gives Harper skills to adapt to her changing world, while also giving her reasons to dig into other people’s problems. Plus the concept of being PI for the weird? Brilliant. At times the explanations of the grey get a little wordy as both Harper and the reader learn about the grey.
