I've wanted to read the Greywalker books for a decent amount of time now. I received the first one from an exchange a whiles back, and I have the third one as well. My edition of the second one seems to have disappeared sadly, but I sorted that out quickly enough. All that rambling means is that I enjoyed the book quite a lot and can't wait for more.

Harper is...different. She doesn't take things on face value and she can multi-task really well. Her death, because she did truly die for a bit there, opened her up to a whole new level of life that she probably wished stayed hidden, but that she deals with admirably. The 'Grey' is our reality, but not quite. Like The Outer Limits or Twilight Zone, the Grey happens all around us, but for the most part no one has any idea about it. And how people are tuned into the Grey differs from person to person, talent to talent. About halfway through the book I was feeling as sick as Harper anytime she slipped through the Grey quite honestly.

The cast of characters surrounding Harper are equally intriguing--from Quinton (freelance troubleshooter) to Will (antiques auctioneer), they manage to balance out Harper's bluntness. The Danzigers--Ben and Mara--were the most interesting to me. They're in similar fields of study, that is of the paranormal, but have entirely different approaches to it. Ben is more about the science of the unexplained, getting to know the grit and details of what makes the Grey work so to speak. Mara is a witch, she's got firsthand experience with the Grey and what it can do if you're not careful. They butt heads on occasion throughout the book, with a culminating heated discussion near the end involving just how differently they view things.

Harper handles 2 primary cases--the disappearance of college kid Cameron and finding a lost heirloom for a mysterious client. At first both seem pretty routine, but as they unfold it becomes obvious that its just as well that Harper is becoming acclimated to the Grey. Her transition isn't easy, she doesn't just accept that suddenly hey ghosts and vampires and witches really exist; she fights it. She fights it until it makes her sick and then keeps trying to fight it some more. She never wanted to be 'special', she was happy with an ordinary life.
