Review

"'a creepy and original addition to the Urban Fantasy landscape' - Tanya Huff 'Greywalker is a non-stop action book with an intriguing premise, a great heroine, and enough paranormal complications to keep you on the edge of your seat. Richardson's characters are multi-dimensional and engaging, and I enjoyed this book all the way through' - Charlaine Harris 'Fast-paced fun, this first novel will captivate fans of Charmed, Buffy and Charlaine Harris' - Publishers Weekly 'Clever...a cut above' - Publishers Weekly"

Book Description

Second book in Kat Richardson's acclaimed urban fantasy GREYWALKER series

Format: Paperback
Poltergeist picks up a few months after the end of Greywalker. Harper is now more in control of her ability to see into the Grey, but she still hasn't perfected it. With no other Greywalkers to talk to she has to rely on the advice of her friend Mara, and more riskily, the knowledge of Carlos the vampire. Her latest case sees her investigating a University research group who have created an artificial poltergeist. When one of the group is murdered Harper decides to find out who is responsible.

As Poltergeist builds on the story started in Greywalker, I think it's best if you read Book 1 of the series first. Although the mystery part of the story is pretty much standalone, Harper's ongoing arc and interactions with several characters continue from the previous book.

One of the things I like about the Greywalker series is that it isn't obvious where the story is going. I've watched that many episodes of CSI that it's rare for something to surprise me. But Kat Richardson manages to keep her plots intriguing. In the end, the mystery wasn't that mysterious, but all the other stuff that happened along the way, more than made up for it. The fact that while you're reading the story you're completely immersed in Harper's world.

Harper's life doesn't just stop because she has a case. She's also trying to maintain a long-distance relationship with Will Novak (the auctioneer from Greywalker) who has moved to London. Mara and Ben are still on hand to offer assistance, with their resident ghost Albert seemingly encouraging their toddler's bad behaviour. Strange ghosts are accosting Harper in public toilets, vampires are ringing at 5 am asking for favours and she's still not completely sure how her power works.

Format: Paperback
Harper Blaine is a small-time private investigator trying to earn a living when a low-life savagely assaults her, leaving her for dead. For two minutes, to be precise. When Harper comes to in the hospital she begins to feel a bit strange and starts seeing odd things -- things that can only be described as weird-shapes emerging from a foggy grey mist. Harper's death has turned her into a Greywalker; a person who is able to move between our world and the mysterious cross-over zone. Harper wonders whether it's purgatory at one point. Her new status as magnet for all things grey and spooky lands her with some very interesting cases. Harper's world has a mixture of denziens, including but not limited to: ghosts, necromancers, witches, and vampires. I really like how Richardson handles vampires in fact. They actually seem otherwordly for once (and Harper is afraid of them). Shock horror. It's quite refreshing.

In the days leading up to Halloween, Harper finds herself hired by a university research group who are attempting to create an artificial poltergeist; via collective psychology. Tuckman, the leader of the project is suspicious that someone is deliberately faking the phenomena (due to its strength), and approaches Harper to help wheedle out his saboteur. Much to Harper's chagrin, her investigation leads her to some unexpected places... including asking Carlos the vampire necromancer for help. When one of the group's members is mysteriously murdered she realises that this will not be just another case.

'Poltergeist' saw most of the characters from the first book return, notably the Danzigers (love them!), Carlos, Quinton, and Cameron. I really like Carlos. He's very interesting and he seems quite interested in Harper, in the way a cat is amused by a mouse.
