Read in November, 2008

Supernatural fiction is on the rise. Unfortunately in literature, a rising tide lifts all boats, even those of less than stellar construction.

Greywalker is an ok premise with faulty execution. The pacing is off, the story jumps around like a 9 year old on a sugar high. And it's set in Seattle - which would ordinarily be great, except that even as someone who lives in Seattle, I can tell you that this is one vast injoke of locations and happenings that people outside Seattle won't enjoy.

Characterization is a bit weak, too - we're introduced to neat characters like a locksmith with an eye on the supernatural, but get no depth on him.

It's not bad, it's just not good enough to pay trade paperback prices on.
