Greywalker Harper Blaine reunites with her love Quinton in Portugal but not for a vacation. The two are hunting Quinton's father, James Purlis, a dark mage who plans to unleash a necromantic creature on the world. An ancient city, Lisbon is a challenge for Harper because of her affinity for ghosts and spirits, but luckily she and Quinton have vampire Carlos, who lived (and died) in the city, along for the ride. The three chase after Purlis, as he and his allies raid the ossuaries for the bones needed for his ritual. VERDICT Every long-running series can do with a change of locale, and choosing Portugal allows Richardson to give readers the backstory for Carlos while still developing Harper and Quinton's relationship. The stakes are higher in this volume (after 2013's Possession), but the story suffers a bit as it departs from Harper's private investigation roots.
