"Vegan vampires, Shakespearean actors, food-co-op aficionados and serious runners face off against old-school bloodsuckers and rapacious, forest-devouring builders in this follow-up to Out of Breath (2011) set in-where else?-Lithia...Spunky Kat is good company; Alex and Roman are better defined this time around, but most vivid character honors go to the setting, whose tall evergreens and babbling brooks, shadowed by brooding mountains, enhance the sturdy plot. Thoroughly entertaining."-- Kirkus Reviews
"The question of who will prevail in this battle of good against evil, of humility against greed, is the most pressing of several cliffhangers that will keep readers eagerly awaiting the third and final volume in Richmond's compelling trilogy." -- Our Hen House
"[A] fast-paced trilogy...[Richmond] does a great job capturing the flavor, politics and issues of the town...The Ghost Runner perfectly captures its setting while adding in engaging characters and a dose of the supernatural." -- Ashland Daily Tidings

Richmond--whoever he or she really is--makes us care about Kat--the main character --as she struggles to go back to school, find love, protect the environment, become an actor, and hold down a job . What makes her appealing is not just her pluckiness but also ability to grow and think through lifes' problems . Gold, and ghosts and her missing father make appearances in the second books (death and taxes too) and the author keeps the story moving and gives Kat plenty of problems to solve.
I'm stocking up on garlic and waiting for the third installment in the Lithia trilogy.
Kat's not the scared little homeless girl that was lucky enough to find a job. She has a job, she's going to school and she's even in a school play! That's pretty amazing from where she had been not too long ago. She's become a strong young lady, still a bit too trustful. Enter someone from her past (I'm not going to tell you who) but my goodness when they betrayed her I just knew that's what they were going to do all along! The bum! Come on, Ket! When you have more then one person warning you about this person and you know how they were maybe you should be a tiny bit more wary! *shakes her head*
A few surprises in The Ghost Runner, I'll give you a few: a ghost runner, someone from her past coming to find her, and inheritance. Those are only a few of the amazing surprises in store for you! Normally I don't like surprises but these added so much to the book and made to great that I'll let it slide...this one time :D Loved how it flowed. Likes water. smooth and at a great pace. No rushing and no slow pokes in this one!
In book one she's herself situated in her new life but in The Ghost Runner she's out to help save the beautiful land of Lithia. She's makes one mistake but she's out full force trying to rectify this mistake. I applaud her for this. She could have given up but no. She's literally running to save it. Two thumbs up, Kat! I love all the things she's dealing with in this book. Most I can relate to (not the vampires though) and some I can sympathize with. I can definitely picture myself in her running shoes. I'm still in college and have to juggle all these things in my life and she is no different. Very happy that they didn't change her too much and made her even more relatable then before and not "oh she's perfect now".
Overall, yes! Read it! You'll love the surprises! Especially the end! By the way, when is book 3 going to come out? This cliffhanger is making me anxious!!
I enjoyed the subtle personality changes that we see with Katherine. She has evolved as a character, which is what we wish out of all our protagonists: to see a bit of a change in the way they look at life. She can get a bit on the whiny side sometimes, but it's not nearly enough to put me off reading the book. We also get to see a bit more of Alex in this book, which is definitely a plus. The many little side plots work well, adding to the overall plot without distracting the reader.
This is a fun addition to its genre and one that I easily recommend to all lovers of paranormal fiction.
