Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Addition to the "Greywalker" Series While it isn’t necessary to read “Greywalker” (the first in this series) before reading “Poltergeist”, I would highly recommend doing so. “Greywalker” while difficult in the sense that it’s hard to wrap your mind around the concept of “the grey” is necessary in setting the foundation for the character map of the series heroine, Harper Blaine. Unlike the first book, “Poltergeist” focuses on one major plot, thus making it much easier to follow. The idea that the book is centered upon – that a group can come together and create their own ghost or poltergeist - is interesting. Take that idea and combine it with Kat Richardson’s view of “the grey” and you have a very intriguing story. Following are some of the book’s success points from my point of view: • Strong single plot focus • Strong characters with expected and necessary growth of the main characters • Consistent following of the premise of the “grey” wound firmly throughout the book • The portrayal of the supernatural in a different light than most other mainstream books – for example, the vampires in this book do not have a “fuzzy, happy, sexy” side • The mundane (raising a toddler) is coupled with the supernatural (living with a ghost) The only thing I would have liked to see more of is the romantic relationships of the main character. These are all but non-existent throughout the book. I'm giving this book a 5 star rating because it was well-written, very interesting, and hard to put down. I read it in less than two days.
