Since the release of her debut novel back in 2006, Richardson has published four novels in her Greywalker saga (Greywalker, Poltergeist, Underground and Vanished) which was just released a few weeks ago) and has done something very few paranormal fantasy authors have accomplished – she has made the jump to hardcover.
The magnitude of her last two novels being released in hardcover shouldn’t be downplayed: paranormal fantasy is arguably one of the fastest growing and dynamic categories in genre fiction but of the hundreds upon hundreds of releases each year, only an elite few are being published in hardcover. In three short years, Richardson has joined a select group of authors that includes the likes of Laurell K. Hamilton, Kim Harrison, Jim Butcher, Charlaine Harris, and Patricia Briggs.
Why is Kat Richardson – and her Greywalker saga featuring Seattle based private investigator Blaine Harper – so good? It’s because she excels in fusing all of the appealing elements of contemporary paranormal fantasy (butt-kicking female heroine, heaping helpings of vampires and ghosts, romantic undertones, etc.) with a wide variety of “old school” genre fiction sensibilities.
