This book was pretty good. Not great, not bad. Yes, Harper is basically the same as Sookie---but if you miss reading about Sookie then Harper fills the void.

OPL only has this in e-book format so I ordered a hard copy via interlibrary loan (thanks, Carleton Place Public Library!).

All of Charlaine Harris' main characters act and sound exactly like Sookie Stackhouse, and this one is no exception. A quick, mildly entertaining read.

This is my favorite Charlene Harris series. The characters are well developed and the story is scary.

Grave Sight was a very enjoyable introduction to a fascinating character. Harper Connelly is not Sookie Stackhouse. If you are expecting a Sookie clone, you will be disappointed. I actually think Harper and her stepbrother/manager Tolliver are very compelling characters and Charlaine Harris has created another wonderful fictional world.

I love the Sookie Stackhouse series, partly because the characters are so great, but also because the books are rich in humor.

Grave Sight has a couple of things in common with the Sookie books: It's set in the South, there's a mystery to be solved, and occult forces are at work.

However, this isn't the comedic romp that you'd find in the True Blood series. The heroine has a dry sense of humor, but that's regularly dampened by the rotten way people treat her "otherness" and the horrible circumstances in which she finds herself.

This novel is darker and more introspective. It's not a spoof on various genres. In the True Blood books, mention is made that people treat Sookie differently because she has an ability that they don't understand and that they mistrust. In this book, that issue is treated more thoroughly and more seriously.

The storyline was interesting with a lot of potential but I just found it lacking in someway. I love Charlaine Harris’s Sookie Stackhouse series so figured I would enjoy this one as well. Not so much. The story certainly doesn’t have as much action as Sookie Stackhouse. The story was boring and it dragged on. Sookie is a character you genuinely like who has good morals and manners; I just didn’t find myself liking Harper that much. Throughout the whole book I kept wondering if there was a different (maybe unknown to the characters at this point) type of relationship between Harper and Tolliver, it walked such a fine line that I just couldn’t tell but if its strictly brother and sister then it’s a bit more intimate then I share with my brother.

Overall this book didn’t impress me as much as the Sookie Stackhouse series, maybe I shouldn’t compare but even on its own I would still find it slow and boring. I will try the next book and hope that it gets better , if not I won’t be continuing this series.

The Harper Connelly books have a greater mystery bent than the Sookie Stackhouse. I think she's a more interesting heroine too.

Harper and her Step-brother Tolliver are soul searchers. Ever since Harper was hit by lightning she can locate dead bodies if buried in the ground and see their last few seconds of life. Word of mouth provides them with jobs and they drive all over the country trying to locate the missing bodies for families who just want closure. She's very good at her job though she has to deal with alot of people who just don't like her for what she does, even the ones who hire her for her services. Interesting storyline with potential.
