Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Harper Blaine was slogging along as a small-time P.I. when a two-bit perp's savage assault left her dead. For two minutes, to be precise.

When Harper comes to in the hospital, she begins to feel a bit...strange. She sees things that can only be described as weird-shapes emerging from a foggy grey mist, snarling teeth, creatures roaring.

But Harper's not crazy. Her "death" has made her a Greywalker — able to move between our world and the mysterious, cross-over zone where things that go bump in the night exist. And her new gift (or curse) is about to drag her into that world of vampires and ghosts, magic and witches, necromancers and sinister artifacts. Whether she likes it or not.

Review:

"PI Harper Blaine sees a strange shift in clientele in Richardson's dizzy urban fantasy debut. After being dead for two minutes as a result of a clobbering by an angry perp, Harper discovers icky side effects complicate her Seattle life in unexpected ways — she sees ghosts and attracts otherworldly business as she pops in and out of a shadowy overlapping world. Harper seeks the assistance of Ben Danziger, self-proclaimed 'ghost guy' and linguistics professor, and his wife, Mara, a witty Irish witch. They educate Harper on the Grey, 'a place between our world and the next.' Harper tries to maintain a normal life, dating a sexy antiques expert while battling wits with Seattle's vampire king, but being a Greywalker means she can only 'pass for human.' Fast-paced fun, this first novel will captivate fans of Charmed, Buffy and Charlaine Harris (Definitely Dead)." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"[Enough] nonstop action and paranormal complications to keep you on the edge of your seat" Charlaine Harris, author of Definitely Dead

Review:

"[A] strong addition to the growing body of urban fantasy mysteries." Library Journal

Review:

"This nuanced ghost story is a clever addition to the literature, and sure to engage teen readers." KLIATT

Review:

"[A] superb beginning to the series that's unquestionably in the offing." Kirkus Reviews

I am not a science fiction person. Really. But something caught me about this book, and I am now three deep into the series. A smart heroine who you could almost see yourself being. Especially fun reading for people who know Seattle and its culture a bit.

A R Pickett, October 16, 2006 (view all comments by A R Pickett)
This is a quick, riveting read for fans of the "woo-woo" factor. The real strength here is the character of Harper Blaine, a woman with new skills she did not seek out but must now learn to manage. Richardson does a fine job in portraying the tension between Harper's new life and her nostalgia for the simpler more clear cut world she inhabited before her injury. Several subsidiary characters are also nicely portrayed - the young college student who has gone missing, a computer "geek" who matter of factly helps Harper even as he perceives the truth of her situation, and an attractive antiques dealer who hopes to be a permanent romantic person in Harper's life.
