Albert is their resident ghost. This means either someone is sabotaging the study, or something really weird is going on.
Second in the Greywalker urban fantasy series set in Seattle and revolving around a private investigator who can walk between worlds. My only complaint with this book was that Harper only had the one case to work on and, at times, her foot work on that case got a bit boring. It’s a perfect name for a ferret. The major difference is that the case she’s working involves a mean spirited poltergeist.

I really loved how Richardson has expanded Harper’s working with the Grey. Again, an interesting and entertaining read, and the bones are there for a really great story, but … it could be better. If you like paranormal mystery that pays special attention to detail when explaining the workings behind the paranormal phenomena then I think you will really love this book.
I just know there’s stuff she’s not telling us There are no vampires here, no explanation of the spell put on Harper from the first novel, one conversation with Will, and little progress with the grey.
The head researcher suspects someone is faking the phenomena, but Harper’s investigation reveals something else entirely – they’ve succeeded. Now that’s where it gets fun. It was fascinating how she worked their interaction and the changing dynamics even though I also feel that she neglected to stretch the tensions between them as much as she could have as well as their own personal issues.
The true power is the mix of science and magic to make everything feel as if it really could be part of our world. Now she’s a Greywalker – walking the thin line between the living world and the paranormal realm. I like what Richardson is doing with the series as a whole and this particular installment was pretty tense. And he is lyin’ ricbardson ass off to Harper. Harper Blaine was your average small-time PI until she died-for two minutes. It was a bit of a problem in the first book, but I assumed the author felt it had to be done to set up the grey world.
There’s an interesting cast of side characters, from the college professor and witch who help her with her skills, to her pootergeist friend Quinton to Phoebe, bookstore owner. Although Harper is new to the paranormal, she is trying to learn and understand more of how it works. I read the first book in this urban fantasy series a few years ago: The narration was somewhat improved when compared to the previous audiobook. Richardson really shows off her skills here!
Book review: “Poltergeist” by Kat Richardson – Book Trolley
A bit faster this time, but still poltergeistt. Denise Francisco is his very angry secretary who helped install the system for the meeting and control rooms while the insecure and angry Terry Dornier monitors the controls. Not as good as the first in the series.
I strongly disliked her version of Carlos who sounds angry and, well, like a woman trying to talk in a deep voice and failing miserably.
The title is all about the Poltergeist as it becomes more and more alive.

I still enjoy poltereist creativity behind the idea of the Grey and the idea of Harper being able to travel through layers of ghostly time is really interesting and adds a whole additional layer to the story. The further she investigates, however, the more convinced Harper is that the group of misfits has, in fact, created a real ghost.
This time around Harper is hired by a local psychology professor to polteegeist the unexpected happenings in an experiment he’s running on psychokinesis, involving a group of participants’ ability to “create” their own poltergeist.
The vampires are still scary as all get out though. Pacific Northwest University professor and psychologist Gartner Tuckman is potlergeist to replicate the results of an actual ’70s Canadian psychokinesis experiment by the Owen group, whose participants appeared to create a poltergeist. I think this book would be better if Richardson could have more dialogue. Poltergeist started out interesting.
Richardson throws in a atypical heroine as our protagonist and it really works.
