One was fantastic, two was one step past that, and this book might be the best so far! That's remarkable, since the first two were so good. Some authors lose steam the further along in a series they get - Kat Richardson seems to gain it! I absolutely love Harper and all her creepy friends, and I really can't wait for the next adventure! Please hurry, Kat!

This book doesn't stop from beginning to end! It's so crazy in all the best ways! Harper goes to see all the old friends (so to speak) and makes some interesting new aquaintances. I loved the Native American legends in it. So amazing! I really liked Harper with Quinton better than Will - he was such a stick in the mud. Highly recommended!!

Kat Richardson does it again! The Greywalker series is so intriguing and so well-written, I have a hard time believing these are her first books. She has a gift! Harper is probably my favorite of all female heroes - I want to be just like her! ...or, maybe not. Ghosts for clients? I think I couldn't handle that. Anyway, this book is a must read. Like dark fantasy? FORGET the Twilight saga, these are MUCH better!

talksupe.blogspot.comtechnically a 3.5This series is getting more interesting by the book! If you started with Greywalker and decided to drop it, I STRONGLY URGE you to pick up the book once again and proceed with the series. It just gets better and better and I guess she is taking notes from her buddy Charlaine Harris. So aside from Harper's budding personal life, I'm now excited to ride the Kat Richardson train and take more adventurous supernatural trips on the streets of Seattle.

Another solid installment in the Greywalker series. The best part about this book is that much of it takes place in Seattle¿s underground, the tunnels and old sidewalks below the modern city. I greatly enjoyed learning about the underground¿s sordid history, and I can¿t think of a better setting for a creepy tale about ghosts, murder, and monsters. I also liked the character development, the heart-pounding action sequences, and the nuggets of romance. Overall, Underground is a good mystery, on par with the first two installments, and I¿m looking forward to reading the next book, Vanished.

This is the third book in the Greywalker series by Kat Richardson. The 4th book, Vanished, had already been released and the 5th book, Labyrinth, is due out August 2010. There are six books under contract for this series last that I heard. I enjoyed this book and thought it was a good addition to the series. I listened to this on audio book. The audio book was fairly well done, sometimes the narrator has trouble distinguishing the different male voices, but other than that it was easy to listen to.In this book Quentin contacts Harper about some weirdness happening in Seattle's Underground. Homeless people are going missing and are found dead. Even creepier, body parts have been found in the Underground and the occasional zombie has been seen wandering around. The weather has been strangely cold and wintery; Harper needs to figure out how this is all connected and find out if it is a threat to Seattle. This time the vampires bow out of helping; but luckily Harper has the very resourceful Quentin at her side.As mentioned in previous reviews for this series, these books are mysteries with a paranormal bent to them. There isn't much romance, there is some action, but most of the book is focused on solving the case through investigative work. I again enjoyed Harper's analytical mind and practicality in getting the case solved. It was wonderful to learn some of Quentin's secrets too. He is a great character and I enjoyed having him play such a big role in this story.As with previous books Richardson really does her research and gives us extensive detail on both the Underground of Seattle and the history of the Native Americans of that area. I enjoy this detail, but I could understand how some people might find it cumbersome. So again, if you have read previous books you are familiar with this, Richardson goes into great detail on things and I really enjoyed learning about them.Harper does a great job incorporating the skills she has learned as a Greywalker in previous books to help solve her current case. It was nice to see Harper making use of all that she had learned. Additionally she again learns some new things about her power as a Greywalker. The overall story is nicely summed up, as it has been with each book in this series. I am really enjoying this series. The books aren't incredibly exceptional but they are very well done and make for enjoyable reads. I love trying to race Harper to the conclusion of the mystery. Richardson does an excellent job summing things up and at the end of this book there is a little teaser to what the next book is going to be about.Overall this has been an excellent series and this book was no exception to that. I look forward to reading the 4th book, Vanished, in this series.

Third in Richardson's Greywalker sereis. It is a good read, though I didn't find it as compelling as the first two in the series. It is set in Underground Seattle, which is almost wholly closed off, but in the book, an interesting area inhabited by the homeless. The story also has great detail on legends of the Northwest Indians.

I just finished "Underground". This is Kat Richardson's third novel of her 'Greywalker' series and I love it! Her heroine reminds me a bit of Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake...without the sexcapades...or the guilt...or the constant killing. Ok, maybe not Anita Blake. Richardson's heroine is a strong character who wrestles with her choices while always trying to do the right thing...even when it's not the most comfortable thing.Harper died...for about two minutes. When she came 'back', she came back with the ability to see what she calls the Grey, that realm between the worlds where time and space aren't quite the same. She also has the ability to 'slide into' the Grey...where she can see ghosts and the past overlaid on the present, and magic and energies have color and weight...very hard to describe, but very well done! In the first book "Greywalker", Harper tries to find out why the world is now so different to her, and how she can come to grips with what's happened to her. The second book "Poltergeist" had Harper learning a bit more about her abilities and the 'rules' of the Grey and it's also where Harper finds out there are more creatures 'living' in both worlds than she ever knew! Each book has a mystery and Harper earns her living as a private investigator, so by now we know that when a 'case' gets dropped in Harper's lap, there's going to be something a big, or a lot, strange about it.This time something is killing the homeless in Seattle's Underground. When her friend Quinn worries that he may be connected to the case, he asks Harper for her help. What these two find out while investigating isn't pretty, but it IS pretty darn dangerous. Harper also has to deal with a few vampires, a witch or two, some necromancers, ghosts galore, creatures from Native American folklore, and her boyfriend who knows nothing about Harper's 'other' life...and doesn't want to.This series has sucked me in but good. As soon as I pick up the new book I'm out of touch with this world until I finish. Harper is someone I'd like to have a beer with...as long as she assured me there weren't any unseen things hanging about! If you like fantasy, give Harper a shot. The first two books are in paperback, but this one is only available in hardcover. I have all three on my 'keeper' shelf!

I love this awesome series so far it's turning into a hell of a story line to get wrapped up in, from ghosts and vampires, to monsters in the sewer. I can't wait to get started on the next.

PI Blaine is asked by Quinton to investigate a series of unexplained murders in the Pioneer section of town. The third in the Greywalker series, the protagonist grows and becomes more comfortable with new skill set. A monster from Indian legend and lots of unexpected twists, makes this paranormal PI books, one of the best I have ever read.
