"This series is absolutely unique"
Harper Blaine still doesn't know why she is a Greywalker
but she is slowly getting used to it. As a private
investigator, using the Grey can actually work to her
advantage. However the Grey isn't a safe place, as she has
already learnt the hard way.
When Harper hears from an ex, and very dead, boyfriend she
finds herself visiting him and her mother to find out more
about her father's early death. She tries to find his ghost
but only finds a void where he should be, which leaves
Harper with more unanswered questions than she had when she
Then Harper's investigation into her own mystery gets cut
short when a very demanding vampire insists she goes to
London for him. When she arrives in England she discovers
that her personal mystery is actually tied up with her
present job and she starts to get some answers.
London however is a dangerous place and before Harper knows
what is happening she is on the run from the baddies and
trying to find a friend before he is killed. In a strange
city away from all her securities, Harper has to use her
Greywalking skills to save her friends and herself.
Vanished is book four in the Greywalker series and
even after the long break between books I have no problem
getting back up to speed with Harper. Like visiting an old
friend, Harper is a character that you will find hard not
to like. She has strength and stamina but she is also
vulnerable and scared. Harper is just like you and me, past
problems, worries about the future and trying to get
through the present.
This new installment to the series started off slowly but
sped up all the way through till the very end. Being
British I loved the idea of Harper being in London and
enjoyed her adventures there and found them very detailed
and interesting. Lots of new information and some questions
are answered in Vanished but I hope that Harper will
be back again soon to open up more of the 'grey' for us.
This series is absolutely unique. There is nothing else out
there like the 'grey' and the spooky and scary elements
that surround it. Ghosts and vampires are just a taste of
the paranormal characters you will find inside this book
and the rest in the series. With so much variety and such
original content this is a series I would highly recommend
to all lovers of the paranormal urban fantasy genre.
