I actually bought this book as well as the sequel but they have sat on my book shelf for a long while now gathering dust as I kept finding something else to read and would come back and flip through for a moment or two and just decide I wasn't ready to read this one quite yet.
Then I found the audio book, had some credits to burn and said 'what the heck!' and I'm very pleased that I did.
Greywalker takes a new twist on the paranormal and their powers and I rather enjoyed the book. I think a few parts of it are stretching it on how quickly she jumps into some rolls but honestly, what book doesn't do that when dealing with the paranormal.
This is a very good audio book, the narrator did her job marvelously and I have to admit that the second that the follow up book becomes available as an audio listen that I'll be snatching it up eagerly.

The narration is adequate but not great. Mia Barron has a clear and distinct voice but a couple of character voices were very irritating. A teenager turned vampire seemed more like a preteen, whiny and such with no rebellious edge. I do think the narration was effected by the story and writing style. I bought the book having read a Greywalker short story. I could not tell if I liked it so I tried the first book in the series. It is rather dry with long expository sections explaining the "grey". It would have been better, in my opinion, to just let more things happen and learn about the "grey" as a by product of the story. The central character, is very stereotypical and frankly hard to care about or engage with as she goes about solving the mystery. Supporting characters, such as, Quinton, just appear and have the skill set she needs at that moment. Again cliched. I read other urban fantasy and tried this but I was disappointed as the book, to me, is very blase. Average.
