Book Description

5 Aug 2008 Greywalker (Book 3)

Harper Blaine was just an average small-time private investigator until she died - for two minutes. Now Harper is a Greywalker, walking the thin line between the living world and the paranormal realm. And her new abilities are landing her all sorts of strange cases.

In the cold of winter, Pioneer Square's homeless are turning up dead and mutilated, and zombies have been seen roaming the streets of the underground - the city buried beneath modern Seattle. When Harper's friend Quinton fears he may be implicated in the deaths, he persuades her to investigate their mysterious cause. But when Harper turns to the city's vampire denizens for help, they want nothing to do with her or with the investigation. For this creature is no vampire. Someone has unleashed a monster of ancient legend upon the Underground, and Harper must deal with both the living and the dead to put a stop to it . . . unless it stops her first.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kat Can Do 27 Jun 2009
By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Having loved the previous two books in the series I took a break for a few days before starting this offering in case I was just in a good mood for the time of year (hey we're talking British Summer here folks, that rare and wonderful thing where you get three hours of sunshine against seven days of rain. LOL) so was a tad worried when I started it that I really couldn't get straight back in to the tale. I was wrong on that front as I was immediately hooked and yet again found my time was literally sucked through a portal to end up quite late at night and me suddenly thinking where had my time gone. A great series and one that I really can't recommend enough for those looking for something different in the Supernatural genre. What Jim did for Wizards, Kat has done for her own unique outlook on the world. Definitely a tale worth the read and definitely a high quality series to compare others by.

4.0 out of 5 stars Different 27 Feb 2009
Format:Paperback
I enjoyed this book. The characters are sufficiently well rounded to carry a series and there is scope for development. On the strength of this first offering I bought the next two in the series. Well paced but skip the pseudo scientific babble.

5.0 out of 5 stars Harper's back 30 Jan 2009
By PJ Rankine TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I won't bother expanding on the previous review because it covers the synopsis very well, suffice it to say that Harper Blaine is back and Kat Richardson goes from strength to strength in this latest episode. Her books are well written and literate and exhibit a style and technique beyond what is essentially pulp fiction. Kat; if you're reading this, please take that as a compliment. Her description of the Seattle underground is so vivid that it made me want to go there and see it for myself and demonstrates the amount of research she puts into her work. The characters are well developed and its nice to see old friends are not forgotten. Hope to see the detective getting a bigger mention in a later work. In a genre heavily populated with dross this series is pure class.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deliciously spooky. 1 Nov 2008
Format:Paperback
Underground is the third book in Kat Richardson's Greywalker series, and if you haven't already read the first two books (Greywalker and Poltergeist) I would highly recommend that you do before starting into this one.

Harper Blaine is a private investigator with some extra talents - as the result of dying and being rescusitated two minutes later she now sees ghosts and can manipulate 'the grey'.(It's just a bit too complicated to explain fully here) Needless to say her new abilities have been landing her some strange new cases dealing with ghosts, necromancers, vampires and other things that go bump in the night.

In Underground, Quinton (a friend of Harper's) - fearing he may be implicated in their deaths - comes to Harper looking for help after a number of homeless people from the underground community of Seattle have been found, oddly bloodless and chewed on by some sort of creature...

Harper as a character has developed from previous books. She's far more comfortable with her skills, better able to use them, and needing far less guidance and help from others to deal with them. She's no more powerful, but she is more confident. I also liked finding out more about Quinton and his backstory and I enjoyed the greater role he had in this book to that in previous books in the series.

I found this book to be quite spooky and sinister and full of tension, twists and turns - much more so than many other Urban Fantasy novels anyway. Kat Richardson's books aren't quite as eerily terrifying as Cherie Priest's books but they're not far off at times. I'll be looking forward to more by this author in the future.
