Publisher Comments:

Harper Blaine was your average small-time PI until she died—for two minutes. Now Harper is a Greywalker, treading the thin line between the living world and the paranormal realm. And she’s discovering that her new abilities are landing her all sorts of “strange” cases.
 
After being shot in the back and dying—again—Harper has lost many of her powers. Now, if the Greywalker dies one more time, she won’t be coming back. Harper’s only respite from the chaos is her work. But while conducting an investigation in the Olympic Peninsula, she sees a ghostly car accident and finds a victim who insists he was murdered, blaming the nearby picturesque community of Sunset Lakes—called “Blood Lake” by locals.
 
Harper soon learns that beneath the icy waters of the lake hides a terrible power and a host of hellish beings—both of which are held under the thrall of a sinister cabal that will use the darkest of arts to achieve their fiendish ends…

Sheila Deeth, August 26, 2013 (view all comments by Sheila Deeth)
After dying, again, Harper Blaine’s skills in the Grey have changed, and author Kat Richardson does a great job of restarting this exciting mystery series after the climactic events of the previous book. Even the image on the cover looks older--a wiser, darker, oddly stronger Greywalker learning the ropes of her altered life.

References to events in the past book reminded me it was a while since I last read it. But the story flows quickly and convincingly, so readers new to the series could probably start here, with just a few missing pieces. If you know Seattle you'll love seeing remembered locations. If not, you'll discover the mist and rain of the Olympic Peninsula, described just as convincingly as downtown streets, all subjected to the powers of invading magic.

Filled with evocative descriptions, well-researched history, intriguing mystery, convincing missteps and a host of great characters, Downpour is a fast dark urban fantasy, blended with scenes from the National Parks, twisted myths, and an enjoyable touch of romance.

Disclosure: We bought Seawitch when we visited Seattle, then I realized I still hadn’t read Downpour, so now I’m catching up.
