About Katherine Lampe

Some people posit that Katherine Lampe is a construct capable of existing in multiple realities simultaneously. Others maintain that she is a changeling, or at least has a large proportion of non-human blood. It is possible that her brain is the result of a government experiment, although which government is uncertain and as of this date none has claimed responsibility.

Review by: Sonya Craig on June 14, 2014 :
Great read, really great!
I loved all the characters, even the bad ones. Well-researched, vivid imagery, and plenty of heart-pounding danger.
Demons, witches, ghosts, magic and one really HOT Scotsman. Paranormal at its best!
I'm excited because I now have a new series to obsess over :)

Review by: Linda McNorton on June 28, 2013 :
I have enjoyed the book The Unquiet Grave by Katherine Lampe. Caitlin Ross (main charecter) is a knowledgable and more realistic heroine. She has her own issues and conquers her fears. What I find refreshing is that she is married. Their relationship has it's ups and down like a real marriage. This book is not the usual format of romance where the female lead pines over a male charecter, a beastly man that says "mine" or period piece where the woman has no rights. It keeps you wondering "what is next" and I was unable to put it down until I finished the book. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series called "She Moved Through the Fair."

Review by: Deborah Jacques on Dec. 24, 2012 :
Very well written! Rather than reading a book, I was drawn in by a master storyteller. I felt that I was right there with Caitlin Ross in all of her emotions and activities. Apparently a simple country woman who walked to town for her mail every day and puttered in her garden, then at night played in an Irish band, it turns out that she's actually a bit more than that. Her husband, Timber, works in construction ... and is also more than at first appears. This is a murder mystery with enough twists and character development to keep me enthralled until the storytelling was completed. I highly recommend this book.

What a pleasure to sit down with this story! Is one of those tales you don't want to have end because it's so enjoyable. Lovely and unique combination of Celtic mythology, undeniable magic, music you can just about hear, importance of intent, and even good mystery along the way, overlaying a cozy rural mountain setting. I know I'd want Caitlin Ross as my friend should I happen to meet her. She's well grounded in her beliefs yet open to other possibilities, all the while remaining very much human. I can't wait to start She Moved Through the Fair...and so I think I'll go do that now!

Review by: Michael Zimmerle on Oct. 07, 2012 :
Well, it's about time! This is the first book I have read that strips all of the pretensions and flag-waiving out of Urban Fantasy, portraying the kind of characters and use of magic that a reader can actually believe might be taking place in their own neighborhood.
The characters are exceptionally well developed and are grounded in the real world with real world habits and motivations. The fact that most of the book deals with the exercise of thought and deduction only emphasizes the later application of Caitlin Ross's pragmatic approach to magic.
Modern pagans will delight in Caitlin's acerbic attitude toward ceremonialism as well as her belief in common courtesy.
This book also contains the VERY BEST use of tarot that I have ever seen in print or film.

Review by: Stef Maruch on Sep. 28, 2012 :
Fun, well-written novel with a compelling ghostly mystery to solve. The main characters have an established marriage and work well as a magical and investigative team. The sense of place is really strong. A bit unusual for a paranormal fantasy in my experience, the magic is based on modern pagan/Wiccan/shamanic practices rather than vampire and werewolf mythology. If you like your entertainment reading to teach you stuff, you'll appreciate the Celtic music references (I hope a future edition of the book will come with a mix CD :) and learning how to read Tarot cards.
