A fun series, getting deeper and more absorbing

Poltergeist is Kat Richardson's second Greywalker novel. It's now sitting on my husband's bookshelf waiting for him to finish Turn Coat, Jim Butcher's latest Harry Dresden offering. Once he finishes, I'll start...

But I was the one to read Poltergeist first, and I really enjoyed it. The two series (Harry Dresden and Greywalker) really do fit well together, with both authors slowly adding to their mysterious worlds, both giving the feel of a protagonist who doesn't know it all but is wise enough to learn. Harper Blaine learned to see into the edges of the Grey in Greywalker. Now she learns more control over what she sees and how she perceives it. Her friends' small child provides light relief with disastrous consequences, and a group of interested recruits in a paranormal research experiment provide the odd dead body and wounded hand.

All the old characters are here, even the world-trotting boyfriend carrying on his long-distance relationship. Quinton remains as mysterious and intriguing as ever. The scared vampire and the scary vampire continue to rack up debts owed and paid. And those who think they know it all end up learning they really don't, which seems fair to me.

Poltergeist is a fascinating mystery with dark undertones and exciting chases set in an absorbing world. But it's only number two in the series, so I'm pleased to know I'll have plenty more to go.

Now, if my husband would just hurry and finish Turn Coat...
