I am a HUGE fan of the Greywalker series.

I found the book not only an enjoyable read, but also an interesting and multi threaded plot line.

Format: Hardcover
Harper Blaine is headed for the Twilight Zone -- and by that, I mean Forks and the Olympic Peninsula. Thankfully there are no sparkly vampires or drooling fangirls.

No, we've got a slew of Chinese demons, magically cursed lakes, voodoo zombies and dead bodies turned into soap. Awesome. Kat Richardson's "Downpour" does suffer a little from barely following up on the last Greywalker novel, but it's a strong urban fantasy with plenty of murky gothic Pacific Northwest atmosphere.

After her third death, Harper finds that her Grey powers have been diminished. But not so diminished that she can't hear the pleas of a faint ghost named Steven Leung. So Harper heads out to the Lake Crescent area to find his body and uncover who killed the poor man -- and finds the place swarming with strange, dangerous creatures.

It turns out that the "cursed" lake and the bizarre creatures (monstrous guai, undead deer) are connected to Leung's surviving family, the domineering Jewel and the elusive wild Willow, as well as a bitter ranger, a crazy old man, Chinese demons and a a ley weaver. One of these lake people is a cold-blooded murderer, and Harper might be next if she keeps investigating.

I was a little disappointed in "Downpour" at first, because it seemed to almost avoid the fact that Harper was pretty much dead at the end of the previous book. She doesn't seem to have any physical or mental scars from it, and it's only really mentioned in passing. Fortunately that's the only big pothole in the story.

The rest of it is rich and developed. Richardon writes the story as a sort of Pacific Northwest gothic -- dark, rainy and murky, with shimmering Grey magic and lots of twisted grudges and family struggles.

Format: Hardcover
This is the sixth book in the Greywalker series. I was unable to find plans for book 7 right now, but I'll keep looking :-) This was one of the weaker books in the series; it started out very slowly and Harper was apart from all the other characters we know and love for the majority of the book. I listed to this on audiobook. The audiobook was okay, I am still not totally sold on this narrator...sometimes the guy characters sound a lot alike.

Harper Blaine is out doing some pre-trial investigation in the Olympic Peninsula when she stumbles across a ghostly burning car and its murdered occupant. This ghost wants Harper to find his murderer. In investigating the case of this burned car Harper is drawn into some wicked evil magic involving the Sunset Lakes region.

I had a lot of trouble getting into this book. In fact if I hadn't been listening to this on audiobook, while driving, I probably would have stopped reading it after the first half of the book. The mystery setup is very tedious. Harper is out in the middle of nowhere, and because of this, none of the characters or settings we know and love are part of the story. Harper kind of wanders from site to site interrogating people and trying to piece together the mystery of the Sunset Lakes...I just found this tedious and boring. In fact I started to fall asleep during my car ride a couple of times.

I know Richardson is always incredibly detailed in her description of character actions, but usually she focuses on something interesting in the story. I believe the focus of this story was supposed to be Chinese magic and voodoo; but we don't get to learn much about it because the plot is constantly changing focus.

I also missed Quentin.

Recommend reading this series from book #1. Each book grows from the last and you will really enjoy the story a lot more if read in order. Some book sets are not as interdependant as this and can be picked up and read as stand alone books. But this set really does need to be read as a set. Good, strong leading lady.

Format: Hardcover
As always, Kat draws me into the world of Harper Blaine and takes me on a journey down the supernatural highway. Harper is strongly nudged by the Guardian Beast to take on a job where rogue mages are taking control of the magic in the community of Sunset Lakes. Zombies, and other undead creatures as well as Japanese fox demons make an appearance further hampering Harper's investigation.
Non stop battles between Harper and the supernaturals ensue. She finds out about her newly acquired gifts.
The romance between her and Quinton becomes stronger in an unexpected way as you come to find out by the end of the book.

Format: Hardcover
This one was a little strange with the Evil Lake and the strange creatures it dreged up but this installment was a good one.
I like the fact that Will's brother had a happy ending to his harrassment from the police.. such a haunted young man..
the beginning drags a bit and then picks up , but of course Harper is always sticking her nose where it does not belong and getting caught up in sidetracked mysteries.. this is no differant with a ghost in a burned out SUV getting her attention.
She starts poking into a cold case of this missing man, and has evil chinese demons helping and zombies following her.
It all climaxes at a lake house and Quinton helping her though the day. I love Quinton he rocks.. and has the patience of St. Peter with Harper and her messes and her undecieded mind whether she loves or not loves quinton..
