I love the Greywalker series and Harper Blaine, so I was excited to listen to Kat Richardson’s Through the Grey. It’s a collection of short stories with three tales from the Greywalker series. Richardson did not disappoint, and we explore everything from the dead to a runaway reindeer.

At the intersection of the normal and the weird, lies the Grey: a place where whatever you believe in hard enough comes to dangerous life, and death, magic, and the unexpected lie in wait. The journey begins with a ghost’s pleas for justice that lead paranormal PI Harper Blaine to an unsuspected crime. Ranging from harrowing to humorous, these ten tales from the imagination of best-selling author Kat Richardson travel into the realms of mystery, science fiction, fantasy, and more:
Share a drink with a reindeer on the run.
Discover a young genius whose nightmares may be the key to a post-apocalyptic world’s return to the sunlight.
Meet a witty woman warrior and her wisecracking dragon companion.
Accompany Detective Rey Solis on a strange case of bank robbery.
Confront a mysterious figure in a magical tower.
Befriend menacing clockwork dogs.
Accompany an undead thief on one Hell of a job.
Enter a roadside dive where a salesman’s life takes a comic turn for the worst.
Explore a Mexican graveyard with Harper Blaine on the Day of the Dead.
This volume includes two previously unpublished pieces, as well as the limited-edition version of the Harper Blaine story Chemotherapy, and two other tales from the Greywalker universe. Enter the Grey and let the journey begin.
Narrated by Kristin James, Richardson plunges us into the world of the Grey: a place where whatever you believe in hard enough comes to dangerous life, and death, magic, and the unexpected lie in wait. Harper Blaine sees the dead and in her stories she takes on cases where the dead cannot rest until she aids them. I loved each of the stories and was left wanting more from this world.
Richardson knows how to weave a story regardless of the subject, and she pulled me into each of the tales. Some set stories we know on end and twisted them, others made us ponder. I still shudder when I think of the reindeer.
You’ll meet dragons, step into a post-apocalyptic world and cross-paths with clockwork dogs. Except for the Harper Blaine stories, these shorts run from humorous to horror and everything in between. I found it worked best if I listened to one story at a time and then paused to digest it. It’s a smorgasbord and Kristin James did a stellar job of narrating the stories. She enhanced the stories from her pacing to the voices she gave to each story.
Through the Grey has stories for fans of mystery, suspense, supernatural and fantasy. My favorites were the Harper Blaine stories, but I also enjoyed the warrior and her dragon, the clockwork dogs and an undead thief.
It’s always a pleasure listening to/reading this author and I hope we see more from her.Through the Grey By Kat Richardson shares mysteries, suspense, supernatural and fantasy tales including three Harper Blaine stories #anthology #audiobook #KristinJames #GreyWalker #Fantasy #Mystery Click To Tweet
