Feels like a strong restart to the series

  • Aug 26, 2013
After dying, again, Harper Blaine’s skills in the Grey have changed, and author Kat Richardson does a great job of restarting this exciting mystery series after the climactic events of the previous book. Even the image on the cover looks older—a wiser, darker, oddly stronger Greywalker learning the ropes of her altered life.

References to events in the past book reminded me it was a while since I last read it. But the story flows quickly and convincingly, so readers new to the series could probably start here, with just a few missing pieces. If you know Seattle you'll love seeing remembered locations. If not, you'll discover the mist and rain of the Olympic Peninsula, described just as convincingly as downtown streets, all subjected to the powers of invading magic.

Filled with evocative descriptions, well-researched history, intriguing mystery, convincing missteps and a host of great characters, Downpour is a fast dark urban fantasy, blended with scenes from the National Parks, twisted myths, and an enjoyable touch of romance.

Disclosure: We bought Seawitch when we visited Seattle, then I realized I still hadn’t read Downpour, so now I’m catching up.
