In this fourth book, Harper must go to London to solve the mystery of some disappearing assets, along with checking on an old friend who has been troubling Harper's dreams of late. Also, Harper explores her past, especially issues involving her late father, that may explain something about why Harper, of all people, became a Greywalker.
That is enough information! You don't want a spoiler! Suffice it to say that the book is full of wonderful adventure, the usual interesting characters that we really care about, and a storyline that doesn't falter at any point. Obviously, it would be good to start at the first book and read forward if you haven't already sampled Kat Richardson's writing. But it will be worth the time.
This is good adventure and great fun! I can hardly wait for the next one!
A call from the dead leads Harper to investigate her heritage with a focus on the pivotal event before her short-lived death; the demise of her father when she was young. In Los Angeles her mom says he killed himself. Harper reads his tormented writings in which he claimed the monster was coming and he feared for his sweet Harper. She tries to meet her dad's ghost, but frighteningly he is nowhere as if his spirit VANISHED. However, her mind is taken off of her confusion when vampires order her to London to look into a bloody mess. Harper uncovers a connection between England and Seattle that makes her wonder whether her "genes" made it inevitable for her to walk the grey line.
The latest Greywalker investigation is a terrific tale that takes a deep personal spin for the heroine as she inquires into her heritage in an attempt to better understand what happened. The story line is fast-paced and filled with plenty of action as for instance a plane ride to Los Angeles leads to a teenage female ghost popping in wet over Oregon with no one else on board able to sense her. Kat Richardson is at her best with this super urban investigative fantasy as the worlds of the grey and paranormal come figuratively alive through the intrepid but mentally tired heroine.
Excellent characters and nicely written. It helps to have a map of London (Goggle works great) handy but it isn't necessary. The author as usual has done a great job of background research so the story flows smoothly. The plot is very good as is the major sub plot. But warning this book ends in a not quite cliff hanger. It can be read by its self but I would recommend the earlier books in the series mainly because they are excellent reads and will help make sense of the characters.
Overall a highly recommended read.
