Harper Blaine was your average small-time P.I. until a two-bit perp's savage assault left her dead for two minutes. When she comes to in the hospital, she sees things that can only be described as weird-shapes emerging from a foggy grey mist, snarling teeth, creatures roaring.

But Harper's not crazy. Her "death" has made her a Greywalker- able to move between the human world and the mysterious cross-over zone where things that go bump in the night exist. And her new gift is about to drag her into that strange new realm-whether she likes it or not.
(Goodreads Synopsis)

I got sucked into the world of Harper right from page one and I found the premise of the book intriguing and original.

Harper is a well drawn character and I liked her reluctance to her new 'powers' as it seemed more believable than characters in other series who just accept things with barely a blink of the eye. She was a feisty heroine, supported by an interesting collection of figures.

The plot moved along at a good pace with plenty of action and new information throughout. The ending felt a tad rushed, but other than that, it was an enjoyable read from start to finish. I am certainly keen to keep reading the series, which I believe is now up to book seven.
