Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Vampire dominance games and Harper Blaine's quest to free her father's ghost from a Grey maze add spark to Richardson's jumbled but juicy fifth Greywalker novel (after 2009's Vanished). Despite the sometimes complicated magical mumbo jumbo, readers will enjoy watching the plucky paranormal PI, her geeky boyfriend, and funny ferret Chaos battling evil. An ancient Egyptian entity, the Pharaohn-ankh-astet, pursues Harper from London to her home in Seattle, where bloodsucker-in-chief Edward Kammerling is missing, and his rival, Carlos Pires Ataide, desperately needs Harper's help in extricating the tip of a soul-consuming knife from his body. As this series continues its shift from paranormal mystery to more complex vampire-centric fantasy, Richardson's once-playful Harper is clearly evolving into a supernatural force to be reckoned with.

An outstanding book and I am looking forward to the next one!
Carlos also joins the story again and it was nice to learn a bit more history about him, he is a really interesting character.

I have been a loyal fan of the Greywalker series since I read the first book.

This is the fifth book is the Greywalker series by Richardson. Last I heard she was contracted for six books in this series. This book was a great addition to the series. I enjoyed how it tied up a lot of the loose threads presented in the previous novels.

In this book Harper returns to Seattle to find things a mess. Edward's been kidnapped, the serpent-like vampires are taking over the city and their leader Wygan has something horrible planned for Harper, if only she knew what. So all she has to do is rescue her dad's ghost from Wygan, avoid getting killed (again), and figure out what Wygan's big plan is. Easy right? Luckily she has Quinton to back her up and will also get some help from the Danzigers.

To be honest I liked the last book "Vanished" a bit better than this one; that one had more action and just plain old more interesting things going on. But, this book does an excellent job of tying up all the weird random stuff that has been going on throughout the series. Quinton is in the story a lot more and I enjoyed that; him and Harper have such a nice normal relationship despite all the weird stuff going on around them. Carlos also joins the story again and it was nice to learn a bit more history about him, he is a really interesting character. Cameron also makes a reappearance and in a big way.

Not a ton more world-building is done, but we do get to see Harper learn how to do new very awesome things with the Grey, so that is a lot of fun. As I said there isn't as much action in this book as in previous ones, there is a lot of planning. Richardson usually focuses on an area of research for each book and that wasn't as apparent in this book. The research that is presented deals more with the Egyptian vampires than anything else.

Format: Hardcover
As soon as PI Harper Blaine returns home from her adventures in Europe, her home is attacked by a strange breed of vampires. But amidst a vampire power-struggle, Harper is also trying to free the ghost of her father and stop an ancient, evil being from taking over. She has discovered that her entire life (and deaths) has been orchestrated from the start - making her a living pawn. And it's time to turn the tables.

Harper is a constant, yet evolving character - growing in insight and powers. She's brave, sympathetic, kind, and completely likable. Though, I do have to say that I feel sorry for her boyfriends. They should sign a waiver, letting them know that just being with her is a detriment to their health. That goes for friends and neighbors too.

Richardson's creation of the ghostly world of the Grey is completely unique and mystifying. Harper (and the readers by extension) is constantly learning new aspects of this fascinating world. And the overall puzzle is slowly being revealed. Though the mystery takes a backseat in this story, the suspense and fast-paced events more than make up for it. The fifth installment feels like a gradual build up to the eventual finale, ending in a huge cliffhanger. This one urban fantasy series that is not to be missed.

I love the book, 5 stars on content. But someone ran a proofing script (I'm reading the kindle version, don't know if it is also in print) to capitalize one characters name (quint on) and mistakenly capitalized every word that stars with a Qu. There are more of those than you would think, at least one per page (quite, quit, quack, quake, qualify, Queen, quartz, quell, Quip, question, quiet, etc. Etc.).

At first it was funny, but after a while it's distracting, and it's finally to the point I just put the book down. If I could return it, I would, which is a first.

So, publisher, please fix and repost the kindle version! And have a human at least glance at things before releasing! Kat Richardson is a great author and you are doing her a serious disservice.

Side note - this is way too expensive, especially with mistakes like this. I won't be buying any more kindle books unless the price is less than the printed price. This is just greed gone crazy.

I really liked the previous books in this series but this book is brain damagingly boring. There is an interesting short story dragged out through endless, endless descriptions by the heroine of every locale she passes through none of it relevent to the story. It's first person narration so we see and experience everything the same as the heroine. Even though her life is in constant danger from various beings she spends a great deal of time thinking lectures about the history of urban development and renewal instead of watching out for enemies or planning. None of the areas are interesting or unusual. The part is she describes each of the many neighborhoods' locations in great detail as being east of highway 12 and south of something else and near that and west of this... and on and on. Even the boring textbook this belongs in would have just used maps. Remember, NEVER is any of this relevent to the story.
She descibes the types of buildings and homes and their degree of maintenance.

This filler really destroys what should have been a spooky and paranoid atmosphere. How bad can things be if your thoughts are mainly about how maintained the bungelows are, their landscaping and so on? Although most of the story takes place at night she describes all this as if in full daylight. Again destroying any atmosphere or suspense. Even skimming over this garbage the reader will be bored by all repitition needed to stretch this out.

This book could have been vastly improved by having more than the prolog narrated by the boyfriend. His perspective could have been interesting and would have developed all the characters more. His nonsupernatural point of view would have added a lot of atmosphere as well. Ms. Richardson could have filled out her story by actually having more story! I'm so very disappointed in her.
