I actually bought this book as well as the sequel but they have sat on my book shelf for a long while now gathering dust as I kept finding something e..Show More »lse to read and would come back and flip through for a moment or two and just decide I wasn't ready to read this one quite yet.
Then I found the audio book, had some credits to burn and said 'what the heck!' and I'm very pleased that I did.
Greywalker takes a new twist on the paranormal and their powers and I rather enjoyed the book. I think a few parts of it are stretching it on how quickly she jumps into some rolls but honestly, what book doesn't do that when dealing with the paranormal.
This is a very good audio book, the narrator did her job marvelously and I have to admit that the second that the follow up book becomes available as an audio listen that I'll be snatching it up eagerly.
This story has wonderful potential however the narrator is really, really bad. She over enunciates, speaks too slowly at some points and just distrac..Show More »ts from the story in general. You can hardly tell the characters apart in some cases.
So I've been trying to figure out why the Greywalker novels have such low reviews ... I think I've finally figured it out. Greywalker novels don't hav..Show More »e anywhere near as much action as say the Dresden files, though I must also say that Kat Richardson doesn't have the humor the Bob the skull brings to Dresden either. Greywalker novels though are much more about the mystery than Dresden and as such have only a few action scenes.
However, this is the best Greywalker novel yet. I really enjoyed Underground. A lot more information is found out about some of the more mysterious characters in the novel, and many interesting relationships spring up. Also the world that Kat creates about the underground world of Seattle is very interesting even if reminiscent of Dresden's Undertown. Great novel really strong mystery and the answer isn't as obvious as the other two. Looking forward to continuing the series.
The title is a bit misleading … if I were to pick a similar title name I would call it Revealed or Unearthed. The fourth book in the Greywalker series..Show More » reveals many things about Harper’s past and many things about why and how she become a Greywalker. Also some interesting plot lines brought up in the first book and practically dropped for the next two are finally brought up again and more is revealed.
Also I’ve found that the grey is becoming normal, as normal as any paranormal thing can be. I am no longer confused by the oddities of the grey, and find that it makes sense.
Finally, Harper gets to explore other parts of the world beside Seattle. She visits London! Full of great history and lots of paranormal activity in the grey!
Also I had no problem with the narration. I think that Mia Barron does a great job!
I especially liked the remote setting full of quirky characters and mystery. Most of the book is minus the usual secondary characters (except for Ch..Show More »aos, the ferret, and Quentin, the geeky love interest, who is secure enough to let Harper do all the a** kicking.) Anyone who has enjoyed the previous entries in this series should enjoy this one. Would have liked a bit more juxtaposition from the last book to this one, but still an enjoyable read.
