In some cases, death doesn't always stick, and Harper Blaine is proof of that. The latest book in Kat Richardson's `Greywalker' series brings back Harper, as well as an apparent ghost ship all tangled up in the Grey to investigate.

With so many female paranormal investigators out there, it's important to note the ways in which this one is different. Harper is grounded, unpretentious and sometimes even resigned to what she can do as a Greywalker. She's careful, and thinks twice about leaping into danger, most of the time. Unlike some of the urban fantasy heroines, she isn't a wand-waving or guns blazing private investigator, and that makes her unusual.

The book is full of rich detail about the Pacific Northwest, which makes sense as the author is a native, and living in the region myself, I appreciated some of the sly digs at the local peculiarities and weather, which is a character in and of itself. In fact, the fog which is an important element of the story only adds to the air of creeping unease that becomes more evident as Harper and Detective Solis work together to solve the mystery of the Seawitch.

Solis takes on the role of the skeptic, but one that knows enough about Harper to realize that there is something more to her 'weirdness' than seeing things. He's not ready to just embrace the idea of the Grey, but he's not actively hostile, which is a pleasant change from most outsiders in this genre.

The two of them take slightly different routes to investigate what brought the Seawitch home, and who, or what is responsible for its absence as well what happened to its missing crew. Ultimately, though, this is one partnership that might stand the test of time, or the 'weirdness' that Harper tends to attract.

Originally posted here:[...]
Seawitch is the seventh novel of the nationally bestselling Greywalker series by Kat Richardson. Private investigator and Greywalker Harper Blaine is back in Seattle after the the events of book six (Downpour) took both her and her boyfriend out of their comfort zones and to a national park near Seattle.

Harper Blaine used to be a smaller-time private investigator-that is, until she died for two minutes. Now, she's a Greywalker, someone able to see and interact with the Grey, the plane of the ghostly and otherworldly, and home to ghosts and other entities. Due to this ability to tread the very thin line between the living world and the paranormal realm of the Grey, Harper lands some decidedly "strange" cases.

The ghost ship Seawitch disappeared twenty-seven years ago and hasn't been seen since--until now. Now, it's the subject of Harper Blaine's latest case, a case that has her teaming up with Detective Rey Solis of the SPD, a man well-skeptical of anything falling outside of "normal" logic. On top of a partner who doesn't really trust her, Harper must also navigate her way through this case while avoiding destruction, ghostly and paranormal threats and death.

You know, the usual.

Delves a little deeper
Seawitch, like all of the previous Greywalker novels, expands Richardson's unique magic and supernatural system. We see a little bit more of Harper's view of the Grey and of the mortal world. In particular, there is a focus on the Guardian Beast of the Grey and Harper's relationship with it (y'know, it being her boss and all). The magic of the system also gets some screen time as Harper's understanding of it grows. In addition to the supernatural growth, Harper's physical boundaries are expanded.

Format: Hardcover
This is the seventh book in the Greywalker series. It was a solid addition to the series but was pretty contained; there was no new big story-arc started.

I listened to this on audiobook and the audiobook was very well done. The narrator does an excellent job and sounds exactly like I imagine Harper would. She also does an excellent job distinguishing between voices.

Harper and detective Solis have both been assigned with the investigation of a mysterious ghostly ship that has appeared in the harbor named the Seawitch. Of course the appearance of the Seawitch is linked with a number of disturbing paranormal things. It is up to Solis and Harper to unravel the mystery behind its reappearance before it is too late.

The story is written in a very detailed and analytical way, like all of the books in this series. These book are very heavy on the investigative aspect of the story. In this installment we are introduced to some new paranormal creatures; mainly mermaids and the Father of all Otters.

There isn't a ton of character growth in this book. Harper spends some time trying to learn how to be a better friend to those around her, but she doesn't really grow in power or learn to use her power as a Greywalker in new ways. More of the story is spent on Solis and him trying to deal with all of the paranormal things he runs in to. Solis is forced to face some uncomfortable truths and he does grow quite a bit. We learn a lot about Solis and his background.

This wasn't really the start of a new broad story arc, the investigation and the Seawitch mystery are fairly self-contained to this one book. There are some things going on with Quentin and his father that sound interesting and are set up to be dealt with in the next book.
