Ok, I was excited to find a new author and potential series. But I am not even done with the book and it is like pulling teeth right now to even read a few pages. I can see where it is leading, but the concept of "walking in the grey" is tiring and not enough information is being given to keep the readers interest (at least not mine). There needs to be more character development for me to bond with them and so far nothing. I am sort of hoping the "thing" in the grey eats the main character.

This book was awesome! I dug the whole thing, and I normally don't read too many books with a female main character. But Harper is sweet! She's really out-spoken and rough around the edges - she makes a great reluctant heroine. The supporting characters are cool too, especially the not-exactly human ones. I say it's a 3-pointer for Kat Richardson. I know there's two more books, but keep 'em coming!

As a mid-20s female who does not enjoy romance, I love dark fantasy and crime, and this series has both for me! How nice of Kat Richardson to combine the two. I thought this was a really fun read. The author is kind enough to spare us all the mundane and overly-long descriptions that most authors bog us down with, and just lets us use our imaginations, while she gets to the meat of the story, which is the action. Apparently, it takes place around 2000 or 1999, which is awesome, because I moved away from Seattle in 1998, so I knew of most of the places she mentioned - a homecoming, of sorts! I also absolutely adore Harper Blaine. She's everything a woman should be: tough, a smart-alec, logical, suspicious of things outside the norm... I thought her denile of what was happening to her was very realistic. That's how I would've reacted! Anyway - great job, Kat. Poltergiest and Underground were even better!

If you like fast paced novels that don't bog you down with unnecessary explanations and too-long descriptions, then this book is for you. The characters are likable and realistic. Harper was not at all happy about her new talent, she fought against it. Wouldn't some one in the real world do the same? I loved the plot, it moved along with the speed and weight of a frate train. A great book all around!

I could not get into this book at all. I ended up reading 3 or 4 other books in the time it took me to finish this one. The plot was boring. The story dragged on and on and could not keep me interested. I do like the concept of a greywalker but the story itself did nothing for me.

In Seattle private investigator Harper Blaine expected an apology and a check from her client, but instead he hammered her head with his fists and slammed it against the doorjamb before completing his beating of the sleuth. A few days later Harper awakens in the hospital where Dr, Skelleher informs her she had died for two minutes before they managed to bring her back.--------------- Nothing is the same since the incident as now Harper sees ghosts and other paranormal essences that she cannot classify. Even stranger her clients take a gruesome twist as she has started to have walk-ins from the shadowy realm beyond the mortal plane. She needs professional help and a psychiatrist would cost too much money. So instead she turns to Linguistics Professor Ben 'ghost guy' Danziger and his ¿bewitching¿ wife Mara to instruct her on supernatural 101, 102, and advanced courses. Life is not the same for this GREYWALKER though she tries by dating a normal antiques expert while she is one bite away from being the vampire king¿s dessert as she blunders on a case from beyond.----------------- This is an amusing somewhat satirical fantasy mystery starring a delightful female who gaining an on the job education as an almost human sleuth. The story line is fast-paced, but belongs to the heroine who hopes by dating the norms she can keep one foot out of the graveyard. Fans will enjoy the delightfully entertaining detective story that moves back and forth between worlds as the tyro GREYWALKER learns about life, death, and a myriad of grey in-betweens.---------------- Harriet Klausner

I liked this book very much. It's a relief to find a strong female protagonist who isn't constantly making foolish mistakes or bemoaning her lot in life. Great cast of characters and world development. I'm really looking forward to the rest of the series.

This was a good book, I am looking forward to reading the rest in the series. Harper Blaine was a PI before an accident left her dead for 2 she has a second vision and can see things in the grey. This leds to new clients. Lots of twist and turns, and interesting chracters.

I like Kat Richardson's writing. I like her heroine, a very real and ordinary young woman, apart from the minor detail of carrying a gun and being a private investigator. Oh, and the fact that her heart stopped beating for a couple of minutes after she was beaten up. I like the people who help her too, the nerdy scientist and his forgiving wife, and the picture they paint of true love. Poor Harper Blaine doesn't have a true love, but she does have a love interest and he's really rather cool. She has a rather amazing guy who fixes things too. And a talent for meeting and helping the oddest of people, but you'd have to read the book to see how that works out. I like the way the author portrays Harper's reaction to the unknown. The physical sensations of being afraid, and the effect of those sensations on the environment are convincingly portrayed. There's no magical transition from klutz to superwoman here-just a slow learning to apply skills well known to situations thoroughly unknown. And there's the Grey, a scary place, intriguing, confusing, but oddly satisfying in its relation to reality, myth and magic. The book leaves me convinced that the author has everything rather nicely worked out, and eager to read more and find to find out how she's going to make it work.

Really liked a short story by author, so bought this novel. Her writing is decent and the premise and plot were interesting. But I found her protagonist so annoying that I kept futilely hoping the monsters would kill her. And WAY too much time boringly over describing the Gray world.

Skilled writing and interesting. No huge surprises either, kind of predictable. I'll buy at least one more in the series. Much better than some of the crap that passes for writing these days.

Hello Seattle. So, this took me longer than I thought to read. I was looking forward to it. But had to take a break, well a lot of breaks from reading this, because I wasn't in the mood to continue. At times, I was getting bored. That doesn't mean I didn't like the book. I actually like MC Harper Blaine and when she's learning more about her new ability, gets to know her new found friends and enemies, and of course when she's investigating. Otherwise, it was a good start to a series I want to give a chance and read more from.

Kat Richardson is one of the best author finds I've made in many, many years. It probably helps that I was  raised in Seattle, as were my mother and grandmother, so even The Grey -- that world-beside-world of  Seattle's dead community -- feels familiar and like places I've known or heard stories about since I was a toddler (which is many, many years ago now). Harper Blaine, Kat's protagonist, is well drawn and "real" from her first words to her last. Harper's sidekicks are equally well written and real -- even those one might not expect to meet more than once. This first book draws the mind-pictures you'll need to continue through the rest of the series. And, as a ferret owner myself, her ferret character is a real ferret -- perfectly nuanced and definitely alive. That's a first for me. I highly recommend the entire Greywalker series -- all 9 of them. Join the fun. Pick a favourite character. Imagine a really dire situation to put them in. I'll bet Kat beats you to it.

Started off pretty good, then got all kinds of complicated with 871 plot twists and turns. I was actually angry when trying to finish this book.  I released my angry and deleted the book. I don't care how it ends, and frankly am surprised there are multiple installations.

This was neither the best, nor the worst book, I've ever read. It was written well; the concept is a good one, if a little vague at times; and, I found I grew attached to the characters easily. Although it took place in Seattle, it read like something out of the UK. I will definitely give it one more chance. I will go in for Number Two, and see how that goes. If I'm still not crazy about it, I won't bother with any more from this series.
