Read in March, 2012

The Harper Blaine tale returns to Seattle, which is a plus -- even if Harper spends most of it on the run. The various plot lines (both plots and plots) from the previous volume come to a climax here, and a variety of characters who've popped up in previous Greywalker tales take a new turn on stage.

As a big finish -- and an existential conflict for Harper -- this feels like it should have been more engaging. But too much of the story takes place in the Grey, and while Richardson does a vivid job of describing that magical energy realm, ultimately it's not as interesting or engaging as the more concretely rooted aspects of the story. Where the story ties to real places and Harper's relationships with others, it works; where it doesn't, it starts to lose focus (sort of like Harper).

Here's hoping the next volume is a bit lower key and grounded.
