"A good addition to fantasy and mystery collections ..." (Library Journal)
Author of The Zochtil, Read by Nick Sullivan
I liked this book better than the first one. Harper has started to understand the grey a little bit better, and she can actually use it to help her when interviewing people. I saw some people comment that Harper had gained greater knowledge of the grey between books with no explanation. That is true, but it only seems natural since this book picks up quite a bit after the first one ended.
My only problem with this series is still the oddness of the "Grey." I'm still not sure I like what Kat Richardson has created, but it is definitely different.
I still prefer the Dresden Files, but I do like this series better in one aspect. The Dresden Files stopped being quite as much a detective novel as an urban-fantasy novel. Where the greywalker series is still very much a detective novel.
This story has wonderful potential however the narrator is really, really bad. She over enunciates, speaks too slowly at some points and just distracts from the story in general. You can hardly tell the characters apart in some cases.
Poltergeist is another great Greywalker novel that moves the story of Harper Blaine forward. I enjoyed it so much that I listened to it twice.
Mia Barron's performance is adequate. She reads female characters amazingly well, the character of Maura really came to life for me, but several of the male characters sounded whiny and inauthentic.
I have to since I bought the entire Greywalker series last Halloween sale.
It just doesn't flow well and feels dull.
When a random character talks, she curses about every little thing.
No, but I played video games while I listened so I can actually do something I like during the time.
-The narrator did a great job accept she kept mis-pronouncing a name (Solis).
-The first book seemed outdated, but this 2nd book in the series seems more up to date with the times.
-The author has a very large vocabulary to pull from and she seems to know a lot about everything as if she did major research while writing this book.
-The story however was missing something and rather boring.
-If you like detective stuff than this may be the book for you.-However for me this book was too slow and non eventful.
no. The story has weakness in it and there are inconsistencies in the storyline. Conversation is strained and many times not realistic in content or delivery.
yes, since there has been improvement from the first.
The Narrator has a long way to go to bring animation to some of the characters. Sometimes the mysterious/dangerous character sounds dull and boring.
It helped pass the time while driving 600 miles. That was about it
I live on the Gulf of Mexico and I love to listen and walk the day away along God's beautiful grace.
Very unhappy with this series, I just couldn't get into the storyline, there was just no "grab me" factor. was sorry I bought the series.. get one book first and see if it works for you. I felt the narration was pitch-y not sure if that was from the narrator or the audio studio, but sound changes in the narrators voice was very distracting..
The first book in this series was OK. Not as good am most of the other series I've listened to, but OK. This book wan't even up to the first book. It was VERY slow with not much of a plot. I went ahead and finished it because I didn't have anything else to listen to at the time. I might listen to the next one if one of my better series hasn't released a new book yet. Maybe that one will be better
I don't think the plot was developed enough. It could have been a good book if she had added a little more excitement into it. The main character sounded bored most of the time.
Her performance was good it was the story I didn't care for
