From Publishers Weekly
PI Harper Blaine sees a strange shift in clientele in Richardson's dizzy urban fantasy debut. After being dead for two minutes as a result of a clobbering by an angry perp, Harper discovers icky side effects complicate her Seattle life in unexpected ways—she sees ghosts and attracts otherworldly business as she pops in and out of a shadowy overlapping world. Harper seeks the assistance of Ben Danziger, self-proclaimed "ghost guy" and linguistics professor, and his wife, Mara, a witty Irish witch. They educate Harper on the Grey, "a place between our world and the next." Harper tries to maintain a normal life, dating a sexy antiques expert while battling wits with Seattle's vampire king, but being a Greywalker means she can only "pass for human." Fast-paced fun, this first novel will captivate fans of Charmed, Buffy and Charlaine Harris (Definitely Dead). (Oct.)

The author has crafted a very believable world with magic built upon a solid metaphysical foundation. The book is a quick, easy, and very enjoyable read. There is one plot point that strikes me as a bit odd, however. While the heroine has significant challenges dealing with her newfound abilities and embracing the "grey," she has no qualms about befriending a witch or misgivings about discovering that one of her new clients is a vampire. It seems to me that a bit of angst at such things might have been more fitting for the character, yet it by no means ruins the story. Let's face it, for some folks it's easier to accept strange happenings when they impact someone other than themselves.
The bottom line is that Richardson has crafted a rich, interesting story filled with appealing characters that truly connect with the reader. This is no run of the mill urban fantasy. In fact, I liked Greywalker so much that I bought the rest of the series before I even finished reading it. It's a dark fantasy, but a fascinating one. I am excited to reading more of her work.
Author of Blinded by the Night, among other titles
Characters: I really liked most of the characters in this book. I didn't love any of them, but there wasn't really anybody I disliked either.
Overall: This was a really solid paranormal mystery. I didn't have any big complaints about it, but I'm not sure I loved anything about it enough to read book 2.
