Greywalker is detective story that uses paranormal aspects to solve the cases. I adored the book as it started out and was fascinated by Harper's transition into a Greywalker. What turned me off about the book was the number of things happening all at the same time - too many villians, too many agendas, too many different species, too many unexplained events. The second half of the book became more and more complicated, with Harper constantly being sucked dry. In fact, the second half of the book I actually got tired of Harper constantly, constantly stating how tired she was, how wrung out, how nauseated, how sick, how weak, how cold - you get the picture. At one point, I wished she would just kill herself. I probably will buy a second book to see if Harper gains some equilibrium with the Grey and actually becomes useful, because the series does show some real promise.
And here's a pet peeve of mine as an aside: why are Jim Butcher and Andrew S. Swain the only authors that can write about MALE protagonists in this genre??
Harper Blaine is a detective who was attacked by a felon, she died for 2 minutes and came back with the gift for walking in the Grey. The Grey seems to be a parallel dimension for ghosts, demons, and any number of otherworldly beings. When she first realizes something is different she goes to a Dr., he sends her to Mara, a witch, and Ben, a philosopher.
Consequently, half of the book is explanations and tests to find out what Harper can do and see in the Grey. I admit I skipped alot of the psychobabble. I just enjoyed her floundering around in confusion. There may have been a little too much explaining.
She also has two investigations going on, the first involves a missing person, Cammeron, who turns out to have been turned into a vampire. The second involves a spirit who has been captured and forced into an old organ. My question is : if her previous existance has been so normal why is she so accepting of a vampire? While dealing with the vampires she doesn't seem worried about being drained of blood.
Edward is leader of the vampires, he made Cammeron and then cast him out when they had a fight. Cammeron just wants to learn how to be a vampire, as he says "there is no book called VAMPIRES FOR DUMMIES.
I wonder if all of her clients now will be connected to the Grey. Mara thinks alot of things, without a voice, will want to use Harper to complete whatever plans were interrupted by their transition to the Grey. I admit I will be waiting for her next book. I think most people will need to read this one first.
