Recovering from a near-fatal accident, Seattle Private Investigator Harper Blaine develops the ability to move through the Grey: the realm of ghosts, vampires, witches, and magic that exists between our world and the next. Harper wants her life to return to normal, but when her clients turn out to be paranormal, the reluctant Greywalker is drawn into the affairs of ambitious vampires and angry ghosts. As her cases converge, Harper uncovers a plot that threatens Seattle's Grey world and must choose between honor and survival.
It was the idea of dying (the accident is technically fatal) and coming back as something a little different, that reeled me in. I'm glad it did, because I really enjoyed the mix of paranormal & good old fashioned detective work. There's lots more stuff to explore in this world so I went looking for what the author did with them in the sequel.
Happily, I liked Poltergeist even more than Greywalker. It felt as if Harper was a lot more comfortable with what she can do and the plot really zipped along. I'm definitely looking forward to the next book.
So, what's everyone else reading? Any recs? Hit me with them. (So I can add them to my ever-growing to-be-read pile!)
