    Publishers Weekly

  •  “A good addition to fantasy and mystery collections; for fans of urban fantasy and paranormal mysteries.”

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendi | 2/16/2014

    " I'm really enjoying Kat Richardson's work. This is the second of her title's that I've read and the intricacy of her plot lines a great. Her lengthy use of vocabulary is astounding and it's an added joy when I can just tell my eReader to look a word up I don't see very often or that's new to me. Before I would just skim over the word and get the jist of things now I actually am learning more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bonita | 2/14/2014

    " This is the second book in the Greywalker series. I do not think it is as good as the first but, I think it is worth reading. She learns more about her powers and there are some returning characters. The plot is okay but, a little convoluted. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindi (cheesygiraffe) | 2/11/2014

    " It's amazing that a group of people created a ghost by using their imagination to fuel it and make it be. I enjoyed this because it has great characters and a great plot. But I did have to skip over some technical mumbo jumbo. It hurt my head trying to wrap around what they meant and it wasn't too pertinent. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michael | 2/8/2014

    " I didn't like this book. The only reason why i didn't give it one star was that I didn't read the entire thing. I read about three fourths of the book. This is one of the rare times that i didn't finish, actually it might be the only time, a book. Personally i really don't like to not finish books. So for that alone i didn't give it one star. But if I do go back and read it if the story doesn't drastically change and get interesting in a short amount of pages then i will give it one star. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl Tarver | 2/2/2014

    " This book unlike the others I have read is an incredibly slow read. The story doesnt pick up til literally halfway through the book. That being said, when it does pick up expect to be glued til your done. Kat Richardson's use of historical places is amazing and makes one want to dig into the history of Seattle. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pat Stearman | 1/11/2014

    " I'm liking this series - and better reading in order than 4th one second as I did! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 1/9/2014

    " If I hadn't fostered a vain hope that I'd find something to love about this book if I kept reading, I'd have put it down and walked away. It's another case of too much hype over a genre that is oversaturated with similar writers and storylines and that the paranormal angle takes more weight than any actual mystery. I probably will not be buying anymore books by this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shanshad Whelan | 1/6/2014

    " Decent. But like the first book, the author spends a lot of time on explanation and theory and build up of character before the action really hits. Probably not as satisfying for the "a new monster/explosion/attack every 5 minutes" Butcher-esque reader, nor for the crowd that prefers Hamilton style erotica. Takes some patience to get through and could have been streamlined a little, but I think it accomplishes what the author wanted it to. Will be reading the next one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vivianne Kacal | 1/5/2014

    " Too much left unexplained regarding the entity. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chiara | 12/19/2013

    " i enjoy these books but they take me so long to get through. The author goes into so much unnecessary detail at times. Overall the story is good and I really enjoy the main character and the premise of the stories "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pamala | 12/13/2013

    " A great follow up to Greywalker :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sabur76 | 12/8/2013

    " As good as the first...no sign of slut behavior or weakness. Patiently waiting for the third book to arrive in paperback. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa | 11/23/2013

    " I have trouble with some of her descriptions in the "gray", just can't visualize it. But I love her characters and the story lines. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cindy Cunningham | 10/26/2013

    " I wanted to like this more than I did...the blend of historical information and details regarding spiritism would catch my attention normally...but it jumped around a bit too much for me and I could not get a handle on the characters nor on the proposed theories of manifestations. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Teea | 10/19/2013

    " It was okay, the author is still building the world in this book which is good because it's very confusing to me. I have a hard time following it. The dialogue seems very bland too. The heroine seems so serious and I have had a hard time caring if she solves the case or not. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole Prestin | 8/6/2013

    " Not bad for an urban fantasy novel. I like that the heroine isn't overpowered and even more importantly not in love with a vampire or werewolf. I like this series enough to probably continue it if another book comes out after this one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mike (the Paladin) | 5/16/2013

    " Sometimes I think these books are better than "this" after all i did read both of them. Still they ran hot and cold for me and I finally settled on 2 stars. I like some urban fantasy... and this may appeal to a lot of you. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 4/19/2013

    " Love these books -- set in Seattle, non-humans, action. Can't wait for the next one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lumpenprole | 12/28/2012

    " Rather like the first one, except in the case the plot flops. Enough to keep me turning the pages, I suppose, but if there is a third book in this series and it is close to this one, I'll bail. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Morgan Sibbett | 5/16/2012

    " i thought it was ok "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 6/14/2011

    " As a comparison I recently read another 'who is the mystery killer?' and I guessed in the 2nd chapter. I appreciate a little more complexity. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michele | 5/17/2011

    " this starts really, really slow. took 150 pages before the plot got interesting. I like Harper Blaine, the main female lead but give her a sense of humor for goodness sake. Life is not always grim and grey. Let her enjoy something! She seems to have no joy in life at all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bonita | 4/24/2011

    " This is the second book in the Greywalker series. I do not think it is as good as the first but, I think it is worth reading. She learns more about her powers and there are some returning characters. The plot is okay but, a little convoluted. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caran-marie | 3/19/2011

    " The magic theory behind this series is fantastic. I especially enjoy the slipping through time- and the setting in Seattle. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carrie | 2/1/2011

    " Can't say I was impressed with this book. I almost didn't finish it & now wish I hadn't. Sadly, I'm disappointed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 1/17/2011

    " This second book in the series had a much more cohesive plot and some of the issues I had with the first book were moot. Yay! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kalyn | 1/5/2011

    " I thought this book added to the development of Harper as a character and to her relationships with other characters. I liked the premise and am enjoying the series as light reads - good subway books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brianna | 1/2/2011

    " very good. much better than the first one. I missed Will, the anitque dealer from the first novel, but i guess they never worked out their relationship. i dunno why but i am getting a feeling that other relationship is working through. i hope i am right. i can't wait to read on in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carola | 12/2/2010

    " Interesting sequel. Still enjoyed the character and hope to read more. "
