Publisher's Summary

Kat Richardson excels at creating vivid, fast-moving novels that blend urban fantasy with paranormal mystery. In Greywalker, Seattle P.I. Harper Blaine is viciously attacked and murdered - but after exactly two minutes, somehow she returns to life. Now she's seeing strange things all around her - dark visions from the shadow world - and living a normal life may no longer be possible no matter how hard she tries.

    I like mysteries, suspense and thrillers. Occasionally I will listen to some scifi or fantasy.

    "Fun story, easy to follow characters"
    Would you listen to Greywalker again? Why?

    No, I don't relisten often, there are just too many good stories out there.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Harper Blaine, I liked her style, she was tough and practical but still afraid.


    Did Mia Barron do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    The characters were differentiated well, I just didn't really like most of the voices. Cam sounded like Scooby Doo and some of the vampires were just annoying.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No

    Story
    "Mucking through Greywalker"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The sentences are blocky and the reader pauses a fraction of a second to long between sentences - adding to the blockyness of the writing. Short choppy sentences are grammatically correct that tell small choppy portions of the overall scene. There is an overabundance of the first person usage of “I” at the beginning of the sentences.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Looking for the inconsistencies throughout the story.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The reader tends to read in monotone, and at a constant rhythm, and under emphasizes dramatic parts of the story. It is not till chapter 15 that the reader appears to develop a sense of the characters and the story begins to develop some cohesiveness.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    There were portions where the reader managed to successfully add accents and character to the voices for ‘some’ of the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    Through much, especially the first 15 chapters, I felt like I was sitting in an economics class listening to the instructor reciting, “ Bueller….. Bueller….”

    Being academically correct in enunciation and pauses between sentences, and after other punctuation, does not lend itself to the telling of a good story. In this case, it contributed to the choppiness of a story that forgets to provide details in an entertaining way and fails to develop characters the listener can enmesh themselves with.

    Story
    "Not NEAR as bad as those other reviews..."
    What did you love best about Greywalker?

    The concept is new. You still get a mix of the supernatural beings (there are vampires, ghosts and witches, etc) but also new things; and the main character's ability is new.


    What other book might you compare Greywalker to and why?

    Not quite sure yet. Haven't seen another character with her ability. Although she is a very tough female lead which I gravitate towards in the books I love.


    What three words best describe Mia Barron’s voice?

    A little mellow. Although Barron's performance is definitely not the best I've heard, she is also NOT the worst I've heard... Her reading can be a little slow at times, and her voice octave doesn't change much when it's a male character speaking, but she is fairly good at different accents.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I like the friendship between Harper and her witch friend, Mara. It's genuine.... Mara seems very genuine and is actually my favorite character. There should be a book about her...


    Any additional comments?

    I actually love the fact that the main character ha s a ferret. I have one and hers is portrayed pretty true to life.

    "Good story"

    A little slow in places, but this was an interesting story - a new paranormal plot that I haven't seen before, and not what I expected. I will read more of this series.

    "Decent"

    The narration wasn't that great. It was hard to discern the characters.

    "Greywalker very good"

    I will look for more because I liked this one so much, although I did not particularly care for the narrator. Narrators with high pitched voices always make the male voices sound geeky, more like mice that men. jd

    "Just "meh"."

    I generally like the urban fantasy genre, but this book dragged. Perhaps it was the slow, uninspired narration? Or the fact that I didn't develop any connecton with the characters...Well, I bought this in a sale, and I blew a few hours listening to it, but I won't be buying any more of the series.
