    One thought on “Greywalker”

    1. 2.5 stars rounded up to three because it s Seattle and you know it s Seattle even though it s only a small area of Seattle I can say Seattle a few times if you d like This series has a lot of potential I think this is a good start but it s still rough Something about the book was off and I can t tell you exactly what For one thing, even though this was published in 2006, it felt like it was written in 1995, specifically around technology She s a PI but uses a pager and doesn t have a cell phon [...]

    2. After a near death experience, private investigator, Harper Blaine, gains the ability to see and travel in the grey, that intermediate zone between our reality and the reality of the supernatural I liked the premise however, not everything worked as well it could or should have Still, the book had a nice pace and was fun.

    3. I picked this up after reading the short story by Kat Richardson in Mean Streets, which also featured Ms Blaine First off, it s nice to see a female paranormal detective character whose actual cases seem to have weight than her love life Normally there seems to be a strict gender divide in these things men like Harry Dresden and John Taylor occasionally have girlfriends and occasionally have horrible luck with women , but generally that s not a major focus of the books attention Female urban fa [...]

    4. It s very hard to write a helpful review of Graywalker It simply didn t leave any kind of impression on me good or bad The first half was far interesting than the second It had the tone of a hardboiled detective novel and it was quite refreshing, so I was than a little disappointed when it all went straight to hell in the other half Harper Blaine is a good, strong character, but some of her choices weren t quite clear to me, and the love story well, lust story, to be precise was weird and unco [...]

    5. Following the resounding success of my Locus Quest, I faced a dilemma which reading list to follow it up with Variety is the spice of life, so I ve decided to diversify and pursue six different lists simultaneously This book falls into my FINISHING THE SERIES list.I loves me a good series But I m terrible for starting a new series before finishing my last so this reading list is all about trying to close out those series I ve got on the go.2.5 rounded up to 3 because my wife and my mother in law [...]

    6. This was a Vaginal Fantasy pick from Bonnie I enjoyed the book, although I hear the subsequent installments really exceed the quality of 1, so I m excited to go deeper into the series Nothing 100% innovative here, but had a nice tone that isn t quite as twee or cliched as other books in the genre I enjoy the main character because she was believable in an interesting way For VF readers, this one to explore No racy stuff tho, heads up

    7. 2.5 stars, rounded up because the series has potential I hope I enjoyed the first half of Greywalker than the second I think the author is getting her head around the paranormal world The Grey she creates through the first half and hasn t quite gotten a handle on getting the rest of us into this world I have high hopes for the next book but still think this is a worthy read.The opening scene is one of the truest descriptions of a violent encounter that I ve read in a very long time and is what [...]

    8. Supernatural fiction is on the rise Unfortunately in literature, a rising tide lifts all boats, even those of less than stellar construction Greywalker is an ok premise with faulty execution The pacing is off, the story jumps around like a 9 year old on a sugar high And it s set in Seattle which would ordinarily be great, except that even as someone who lives in Seattle, I can tell you that this is one vast injoke of locations and happenings that people outside Seattle won t enjoy.Characterizati [...]

    9. Harper Blaine is a private investigator In the first few pages she is brutally attacked by a man she was tracking down for a client After she leaves the hospital, Harper begins to see strange shapes and disorienting mists all around her Thinking she is experiencing the lingering effects of head trauma she returns to the hospital Once there, her doctor informs her that she actually died for two minutes as a result of her attack He thinks the new sensations she is now having are not medical at all [...]

    10. Overall, a pretty good book Richardson definitely knows her way around a well crafted sentence and a well imagined world But definitely, progressively, weird and dark.I like Harper for the most part she s complex and not a cliche Aspects of the story reminded me of the Harry Dresden novels, although Harper is not nearly the smart alec Harry is A little humour would ve been nice Harper is the first character I ve ever seen with a pet ferret, and that added a few moments of much needed levity I t [...]

    11. 2.5 stars Not uninteresting, and I quite liked the concept of the Grey, but overall I found the plot muddled, and Hqrper too passive at times, in stark contrast with the hardboiled detective feeling I got from the beginning of the story.

    12. I m 63% into the book ebook, sorry, no page numbers and I don t hate it, but I don t really like it either I like Harper, and her ferret, and some of the supporting characters, but there is a lot of weird, disjointed stuff going on and the pacing and transitions are jarring and odd She resists and resists getting pulling into the paranormal, and boy is it a slow first 1 3 of the boom, but suddenly she s deliberately stirring up trouble for the most dangerous guy in town and associating with seri [...]

    13. In the interest of full disclosure I have to start with a note I m so sick of vampires that I m considering going full Van Helsing on the next person who even recommends a freakin vamp story to me Old style Van Helsing too not pretty, Hugh Jackson in a floppy hat Van Helsing I m talking head chopping, mouth stuffed with garlic, burned up at sunrise I need another vampire book in my life like I need to test drive a late model AMC Gremlin At this point, anything I read that is going to have vampir [...]

    14. Once again, the cover struck me first She looked interesting to me Like she knew things And I liked the slanted city she leaned up against, looking like a character in its own right I love it when a particularly city or a particular building is a main character in a story The whole thing is that much richer for it The good news is I wasn t wrong Harper Blaine does, in fact, know things Things she d rather not know, as it turns out, but know things she does And the Seattle of Greywalker is a dark [...]

    15. This book was just one big bag of meh Harper Blaine is a private investigator who generally deals with pretty boring cases that involves a lot of paperwork and foot work Suddenly though one of her normal cases goes wonky and she is killed but only for 2 minutes When she is brought back to life she can see things like ghosts, weird creatures, and a parallel type world called the Grey Then she is hired to find a missing boy who is in fact hiding out, not missing not her normal case Simultaneously [...]

    16. I really enjoyed this book I liked the protagonist I wasn t really sure of her age Usually in urban fantasy books like this one the protagonist is early to mid twenties but I think Harper may have been in her thirties That, or she doesn t have a problem with dating people much older than she is who she believes to have a teenage son.I really liked all of the second tier characters They were fun, interesting, and seemed to have some depth I do have a few concerns though First, I m a little tired [...]

    17. I m sad to say that I lemmed Greywalker at 84% It s the first time in many, many, many years that I couldn t face finishing a book I was actually really drawn in at the beginning and found the concept of the Grey really intriguing, but the plot went all sorts of downhill from there The characters are all really flat, and Harper was so one dimensional I found her scenes painfully awkward to read You know nothing about her backstory really, and her whole persona simple revolves around her being a [...]

    18. 4 Stars Greywalker by Kat Richardson is a fun and interesting start to another cool urban fantasy series As I have said so many times, I can t get enough adult urban fantasy these days Richardson throws in a atypical heroine as our protagonist and it really works There isn t really anything new in Greywalker but there is plenty of awesome things to enjoy.Great characters.Greater setting.A familiar feel.The writing is good and the pacing is fast.I really enjoyed it So much so that I wanted to imm [...]

    19. Synopsis After being dead for two minutes and then revived as a result of a clobbering by an angry perp, Harper Blaine discovers side effects that complicate her Seattle life in unexpected ways She now 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 [...]

    20. Ok random book choice again Well I have mixed opinions on this one and here is the reason why Ok its not the first I see dead people book and certainly will not be the last Ok it makes are bit of a refined approached to it with and no pun intended fleshing the idea out There is to the Grey than just ghosts but that is as far as I will go without giving things away However the book feels like the main character Harper the Greywalker spends time refusing her gift than getting to deal with it h [...]

    21. Honestly the worst book I have read in a long time I go into horrific detail in my status updates, as it was all I could do to remain sane, writing those out after ever chapter or particularly ridiculous section, so I am not going to force myself through everything again.I did really, truly, try to get through this If only for the entertainment value of the reviews and me getting angry and stomping through the house trying to find people to read parts to, I wanted to finish it But I couldn t, be [...]

    22. Whenever I travel, I like to pick up books I don t have to put much emotional effort into to enjoy for some reason, this usually means I find myself reading books about hardboiled female PIs whose investigations bring them smack dab into a paranormal mess of some kind or another, and that is exactly what this book is It s refreshing because the main character is a bad ass not because of any particular special powers she might possess but because she s tenacious and experienced at the PI game, ha [...]

    23. Yeah, so I did read this, and I just finished it yesterday, but I had to sit and think a little bit to remember what it was about.It isnt a bad book The premise is interesting, the plot moves in a mistly forward direction, but it just didnt execute very well The sentences are all properly honed and all, I just wanted to skip most of them It might just be because the protaganist was so confused about her situation that it really was hard to make sense of her motivations She would plan out these b [...]

    24. Very enjoyable Strong writing She has harsh situations as well as humor along with a bit of romance hovering about the edges I was very engaged the entire time I read it and immediately started the second book I like the way she uses light to accentuate the dark and vice versa I recommend this book highly.

    25. The shame Greywalker was a title I purchased when it first released, in 2006 Eight years later I finally read it Oh, the shame Because Richardson is part of the Urban Fantasy movement as I like to call it When the genre finally started to hit big in the 2000s Ironically 8 books later it s clear this is a top series in the genre, so much so that I ve been faithfully buying them without ever reading a single one Which for me is big It was magic when I finally started up Greywalker and it just clic [...]

    26. Towards the end, it redeemed itself a little, so it s maybe a 2.5.I liked the premise and the plot wasn t bad at all I usually complain when characters are made to make stupid decisions just to advance the plot Especially because most of those times the characters are super cool and I hate to see them acting like idiots for the plot s sake I prefer the story forcing itself on the characters and see them react to it I love when a writer does such a job that no matter how clever the character is, [...]

    27. DNF I don t knowis sounded so interesting but everything about it is actually kind of dull Some of her writing seems really sloppy to me as well I see quite a few mixed reviews for this so I know I m not alone If it s a book you enjoyed I think that s great It just isn t for me Oh well.

    28. In Greywalker, Kat Richardson drops readers immediately into the action PI Harper Blaine lands in the hospital after a work related brawl leaves her seriously damaged and dead for two minutes Upon waking, Harper instantly notices things are slightly off, a little grey literally around the edges Her injuries left her as a Greywalker, someone who possesses the ability to both see and walk in the Grey the space between the living and the dead Prior to this revelation, the paranormal wasn t somethin [...]

    29. A Seattle PI dies for two minutes, and when she wakes up she has one foot in THE GREY, that twilighty zone alongside reality that ghosts live in and magic types use to power their spells In short order she s beset by vampires and revenants and GREY related nausea when all she wants to do is hook up with antique dealers, snuggle her ferret, and hang out with her new witch pals It does suffer some from first novel itis The technology seemed way outdated was this written ten years before being publ [...]

    30. Reviewed by Rabid ReadsThis is one of those series that s been on my radar for a while now it also came highly recommended from a number of reviewers who know how much I LOVE Urban Fantasy, so I decided to give it a listen in audio The narration took some getting used to, as did Kat Richardson s grungy poetic writing, but once the action started flowing I was quickly swept away by Harper Blaine s story GREYWALKER reminded me a lot of Kalayna Price s ALEX CRAFT novels in that the main heroine is [...]
