    A perfect number 3!

    One was fantastic, two was one step past that, and this book might be the best so far! That's remarkable, since the first two were so good. Some authors lose steam the further along in a series they get - Kat Richardson seems to gain it! I absolutely love Harper and all her creepy friends, and I really can't wait for the next adventure! Please hurry, Kat!

    The best of the three!

    This book doesn't stop from beginning to end! It's so crazy in all the best ways! Harper goes to see all the old friends (so to speak) and makes some interesting new aquaintances. I loved the Native American legends in it. So amazing! I really liked Harper with Quinton better than Will - he was such a stick in the mud. Highly recommended!!

    Fantastic!

    Kat Richardson does it again! The Greywalker series is so intriguing and so well-written, I have a hard time believing these are her first books. She has a gift! Harper is probably my favorite of all female heroes - I want to be just like her! ...or, maybe not. Ghosts for clients? I think I couldn't handle that. Anyway, this book is a must read. Like dark fantasy? FORGET the Twilight saga, these are MUCH better!

    A Paranormal Series With Crossover Appeal...

    Harper Blaine is a PI who died for two minutes and came back to life as a Greywalker,essentially someone who can walk back and forth between the living and the dead.As UNDERGROUND opens,Seattle is experiencing the coldest winter in years,Harper's love life is on the skids,and Quinton shows up at her office asking her to go to the tunnels with him but don't call the police he wants to show her something.It turns out someone or something is preying on Seattles' homeless who live underground.After surviving a zombie attack Harper begins to suspect Seattles undead citizens may be behind the homeless killings.'Not us' claim the vampires and want nothing more to do with Harper or her case.As Harper investigates further she'll find the evil is something much worse,something of ancient legend.The question becomes will she be powerful enough to stop it.As always Kat includes an authors note at the end of each book which explains the story behind the story and what she used for research.With each and every book she writes you certainly get your monies worth. Mystery and paranormal fans alike should dig this latest offering from Kat Richardson.Likewise people that enjoyed the movie The Sixth Sense or T.V.'s The Ghost Whisperer and have yet to discover this wonderful paranormal noir series are in for a real treat.A word of caution since this is #3 in the series,you should read book 1 Greywalker first as characters in that appear in Underground.

    This powerful urban fantasy whodunit will appeal to fans of Charlaine Harris

    Private Detective Harper Blaine died for two minutes, but was resuscitated becoming a Greywalker a person who can enter the paranormal realm and can see vampires, ghosts and revenants wandering the mundane world. Her client list consists of a who¿s who of otherworldly beings along side her mortal customers.------------ One day her homeless friend Quinton asks her to go with him to a place in the Seattle underground. There they see the body of a dead homeless person minus a leg that looks like it was chewed off. Within a small area several homeless men have recently been murdered with gnawing marks on their bodies others have vanished. There is an obvious serial killer masticating on its victims mindful of similar homicides in 1949. Harper plans to learn what it is and how to stop it.---------------- This powerful urban fantasy whodunit will appeal to fans of Charlaine Harris as the heroine is dedicated to her vocation, but laments the impact of being a Greywalker on her personal life introducing your boyfriend to a ghost seems to have a dampening effect worse is killing a zombie to free the spirit while your lover goes hysterical. There is a lot of action as the chewing killer leaves his bite in Seattle, but the tale is character driven by the protagonist as she goes from one escapade to another trying to end the UNDERGROUND murders.------------- Harriet Klausner

    Beautifully researched, paranormally fun

    Kat Richardson's Greywalker series features a private investigator heroine called Harper Blaine who lives in Seattle and thrives on a type of grey that lies far below the clouds. Harper's grey is the haunt of magic and ghosts, of history repeating itself, memories of Seattle's fire, and tunnels underground. The tunnels are real, though maybe not so accessible or so inhabited as in the novel Underground. They were left when builders raised the level of streets and buildings to avoid the floods.

    Underground is the third book about Harper Blaine. The heroine died for two minutes some while ago, and, ever since, the paranormal has forced its way more deeply into her life. She investigates crimes in both worlds, looking for a monster that's killing the homeless while filing paperwork for real-world courts. Her skills in the grey increase with each new book, as does her and the readers' understanding; and author Kat Richardson does a nice job of building depth into her concepts, rather than piling ideas like toys on a rug. She does introduce new ideas in this book, and introduces them well. The monster is a fascinating construct, built from the stuff of legends. Real-world characters are convincingly reluctant when faced with the improbable. And the elderly Native American woman is delightfully mysterious and real.

    There's a depth to Kat Richardson's Seattle too, not just in her research of its tunnels and history, but also in her descriptions that bring both past and present to life. Underground introduces some new concerns to the overarching tale, adding depth, and sometimes shallowness, to old characters. The new ideas promise more and leave me eager to read book four, but also make me realize that I really am hooked on the series now and curious to say where the story arc will go.

    Well-written, well-researched, fascinating, definitely paranormal, and fun; I'm hoping my husband will like this one as much as I do, then I won't feel so guilty when shopping for more.

    The best in the series so far!

    This book was by far the best in the series so far, the use of indian folklore was very interesting. It really showed the darker more exciting side of Seattle. She revealed the secret identity of one of the characters. The author really let you see deeper into her characters heads. And finally! a little romance.

    Underground by Kat Richardson

    I just finished "Underground". This is Kat Richardson's third novel of her 'Greywalker' series and I love it! Her heroine reminds me a bit of Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake...without the sexcapades...or the guilt...or the constant killing. Ok, maybe not Anita Blake. Richardson's heroine is a strong character who wrestles with her choices while always trying to do the right thing...even when it's not the most comfortable thing.<BR/><BR/>Harper died...for about two minutes. When she came 'back', she came back with the ability to see what she calls the Grey, that realm between the worlds where time and space aren't quite the same. She also has the ability to 'slide into' the Grey...where she can see ghosts and the past overlaid on the present, and magic and energies have color and weight...very hard to describe, but very well done! In the first book "Greywalker", Harper tries to find out why the world is now so different to her, and how she can come to grips with what's happened to her. The second book "Poltergeist" had Harper learning a bit more about her abilities and the 'rules' of the Grey and it's also where Harper finds out there are more creatures 'living' in both worlds than she ever knew! Each book has a mystery and Harper earns her living as a private investigator, so by now we know that when a 'case' gets dropped in Harper's lap, there's going to be something a big, or a lot, strange about it.<BR/><BR/>This time something is killing the homeless in Seattle's Underground. When her friend Quinn worries that he may be connected to the case, he asks Harper for her help. What these two find out while investigating isn't pretty, but it IS pretty darn dangerous. Harper also has to deal with a few vampires, a witch or two, some necromancers, ghosts galore, creatures from Native American folklore, and her boyfriend who knows nothing about Harper's 'other' life...and doesn't want to.<BR/><BR/>This series has sucked me in but good. As soon as I pick up the new book I'm out of touch with this world until I finish. Harper is someone I'd like to have a beer with...as long as she assured me there weren't any unseen things hanging about! If you like fantasy, give Harper a shot. The first two books are in paperback, but this one is only available in hardcover. I have all three on my 'keeper' shelf!

    Intriguing Who Done it Mystery

    I was very pleased w/ this installment. It was full of otherworldly beings; zombies, ghost, mythical creatures, gods/goddess, witches and vampires. The underground world where the homeless people dwell in Harper's town are being mysteriously killed. Most of them appear to have had body parts eaten. There also seems to be ghost trapped in zombies walking the streets. Harper and Quinton team up to solve the mystery. We also get to see deeper into Quinton's past and his secrets. The relationship between Harper and Quinton is so relaxed and natural. I was so glad w/ the way things turned out w/ Quinton, Harper and Will. I recommend this book.
