I understand the rule 'if it isn't broken, don't fix it', but that doesn't mean don't change anything except the setting and the names of your characters. Not much is new in this story which might set it apart from the rest. Hell, I could easily change the names and settings and have a description of one of the previous books. Well, except one thing: there is a race against time in this one. They are trying to save someone. It didn't do much for me. It isn't edge-of-the-seat story. They kept

I confess that these books are a bit of a guilty pleasure for me, and I tend to read them as soon as they come out.

I say guilty pleasure because, let's face it, it's not rocket science. And to be honest, the writing is simplistic and formulaic. You can tell before even opening the book that there will be a 'stunningly beautiful' woman with some kind of powers with the dead. Then there will be some kind of 'ruggedly handsome' man who's a bit ornery to start with but who is soon won over by the c
The story was good and kept me picking it back up, but the writing was a bit off to me. It was hard to figure out who the main character was. I mean it started with her and ended with her, but he did all the mystery solving. Then there were those scenes the editing was just out of whack.

For example, both partners are in the morgue talking to the mortician. She has to leave to take someone home and he is asking questions of the mortician. The four or five questions later he ask her something. Pu
Heather Graham is a consistent, dependable author for gentle, formulaic [and I don't say that as a criticism] and entertaining ghostly mysteries. This was no exception.

The characters are basically nice, intelligent strong people who believe in what they are doing - including the bad guys - who are investigating murders that may or may not have a supernatural perpetrator.

Graham's mysteries are not Agatha Christie, but they are fun and well-written and engaging. I read her books when I want someth

"Graham's books just keep getting better and better. In this installment of the Krewe of Hunters, the mystery is tangled up with the history of Savannah, Ga., and a band of pirates and background makes the story that much more enjoyable. The main characters are complicated and stubborn, and their mutual attraction is positively combustible. With the help of the senior members of the Krewe, they solve as intriguing mystery."

Miniseries: Krewe of Hunters
Suspense Magazine
Unmistakable in style, Heather Graham continues to entertain with the second in this year’s Krewe of Hunters series with “The Night is Alive.”
Abigail Anderson—recent graduate of Quantico’s FBI Academy—has returned home at the request of her grandfather, Gus. Home isn’t the typical abode but a historic tavern with a prominent spot on Savannah, Georgia’s haunted tour schedule. The Dragonslayer has an illustrious history going back generations in Abigail’s family. But Gus isn’t there to greet her
I can truly say I'd like to be a character in any of the Heather Graham books! They always find the perfect man right up front! Anyway, in this book Heather Graham takes us to Savannah both of the 2000s and also the 1750s.

We begin with a Abigail Anderson being summoned home by her grandfather Gus. She just finish the FBI Academy and now she leaving to help her grandfather with whatever mysterious problem he seems to have.

When she arrives, to the Dragonslayer, a tavern which was built by the And

This review is from: The Night Is Alive (Krewe of Hunters)

This was my first book by Heather Graham in this series. The Night Is Alive" performed by Luke Daniels on CD.

This story focuses on a grand-daughter, Abby, and her grand-fathers legacy. that legacy begins with the Dragonslayer a tavern in Savannah, Georgia. The grand-father, Gus, is the owner. He is a descendant of the original owner, Blue. It turns out that blue was a pirate. blue co

I like Heather Graham. I enjoy her quirky female leads and how she smoothly integrates her paranormal characters in to her mysteries. But, I will not be reading any more of her Krewe of Hunters books. The Night is Alive is the second Krewe of Hunters novel reviewed on Sand Between the Pages. You can check out Phantom Evil here.

I grabbed the audio version of The Night is Alive, Krewe of Hunters #10, from the local library, drawn in by the promise of Savannah history and pirate ghosts. I never say
Abby and Malachi are a great couple! The who-dunnit was pretty easy to figure out, but what a great story getting to the reveal!

It's going to be interesting with a 3rd krewe stating up. I love that Jackson, Angela, Kat, and Will were in this book too. I just miss the "team" interaction when the whole krewe are involved.

Looking forward to the next book though.
Mystery, suspense and ghosts. Savannah is one of my favorite places. The book is set in the city with ghosts from the past. The FBI has a paranormal investigation division seldom known about. The well rounded character of the granddaughter meets up with a stranger who is a consultant to this division. Both have paranormal experience that help them solve the crimes being actively committed, and at the same time, getting to know each other well. The loyalty to each other and the department plus th ...more
Although I have read many books by Heather Graham, The Night is Alive is my first Krewe of Hunters experience. Since I really was not confused by the characters the entire time, I feel this can definitely be read as a stand-alone novel. This was a well-paced story full of mystery, romance and ghostly appearances. I was guessing ‘who-done-it’ the whole time, but when the murderer is finally revealed, I had that ‘of course I should have known that’ moment.

Ms. Graham is an awesome story-teller, an
I love this series. I am always excited to see a new one on NetGalley, they are so fun and entertaining. They are like an indulgent treat for me. I curl up on my couch with a cold beverage and comfy clothes, and read away the hours. Sometimes one of my cats or Penny will join me, cozied up behind the backs of my knees.

This one particularly interested me, as it is set in Savannah, one of my favorite cities to visit. The plot made full use of Savannah's piratical history, with pirate boat shows, n

I have enjoyed this series each time I've read one of the books, granted I picked it up in the middle and am slowly trying to catch up my reading and while most of the core characters are in each book it's not necessary to be strict about the reading order, which I really like. So this one takes place in Savannah and involves pirates (who doesn't like pirates especially gentlemen pirates?) and underground tunnels with a dash of ghost thrown in. When Abby is first introduced to Malachi she was a ...more
For anyone that knows me they know I love Heather Graham's books and while this one is no exception it is also one of my favorites so far. I think all the Krewe books are great and interesting. But this one drew me in more than the others. I loved the backdrop and background she included and the setting was well detailed and described so it almost became its own character in the story. Along with pieces of the history that has taken place in Savannah you could really envision the locations where ...more
Abigail Andersen's grandfather told her that her pirate ancestor Blue would appear in times of need to watch over the family. When she sees Blue in the tunnel with Gus beneath the family restaurant, the Dragonslayer, she knows something is terribly wrong and that it is more than just an old man's heart giving out. Coupled with the newspaper articles about the women found murdered recent FBI graduate Abby feels she has enough information to contact the Krewe and ask for assistance.

I really loved this book. A detective, murder mystery with pirates and ghosts. Abby is studying at the FBI Academy to become a detective, when she gets a call from her grandfather, Gus, who runs a tavern known as The Dragonslayer in Savannah. He tells her that she must come right away because he has something important to tell her. But when Abby arrives she soon discovers that he has died, or been murdered. Not only that, there's been a few murders that have all ready taken place. This is only ...more

I came into this series a little late in the game. I didn't realize there was so many before this book but I seen it on Netgalley and it sounded really interesting so I went for it. Even though I haven't read the others I didn't really feel lost. I am pretty sure that these books are able to stand alone even though the same group of investigators are involved in the books. I really enjoyed it.

Abby has the gift of being able to see dead people, but mainly she has only seen Blue Anderson who is a

I enjoy Heather Graham Krewe of Hunters series. They are a mystery with FBI agents that all have extra senses to solve their cases. So they have romance, murder mystery, ghosts and in this story pirates.
The Night is Alive is a good mixture of history of Savannah, pirates, ghosts and a modern day problems.
There was a few love scenes that I skipped over. I enjoyed reading it.

This the tenth book in Graham's Krew of Hunters series and it features Abby and Malachi. Abby just passed all her FBI classes but when her grandfather Gus summons her home with a cryptic message she drops everything to help him. On her return she finds Gus dead in an old pirate tunnel underneath the tavern he owns. Police rule Gus's death accidental but Abby knows that something more sinister happened to him, she believes he was murdered. With her background in the FBI Abby has heard of the Krew ...more

In Graham’s paranormal suspense novel, Savannah is beautiful, historical and very much haunted. The Dragonslayer is one of the most haunted taverns in the city and its owner, Gus Anderson, is descended from the original owner’s pirate brother, Blue, who just happens to still haunt the building.

Gus contacts his granddaughter, Abby, FBI agent in training, concerned enough about something he is not yet ready to reveal to anyone. Shortly after Abby arrives, she stumbles across Gus’s dead body. Her i
Another awesome book in the "Krewe of Hunters" series! This story takes place in historic Savannah, Georgia where Gus Anderson owns the historic pub called the DragonSlayer. It has been passed down from generation to generation beginning with the famous pirate Blue Anderson who had a tunnel dug under the pub and out to the river to allow people to be shanghaied and place on ships going to sea. I love these stories by Heather Graham so much! She puts so much history into the story of the surround ...more
I've read a few of these now, and each time I think it might be the last, because they all follow the same basic formula, yet I still come back to them. A mysterious death with paranormal overtones is discovered, normal police can't handle it, the Krewe is called in, and new or old Krewe members fall in love. THE NIGHT IS ALIVE doesn't vary from this script, but it's still a fun read. The author is good at describing the settings of her books, in this case, Savannah, Georgia. Her history researc ...more
3.5 Argh! Me Matey’s The Night is Alive by Heather Graham is filled with mystery, murder, tunnels and pirates! The tenth book in the FBI Krewe of Hunters series, each book deals with one case and a romance from this elite team that solves murder mysteries involving paranormal anomalies. Three world review: suspenseful, dark and entertaining.
The tale is set in historical Savannah, Georgia at a tavern built in the 1750s known as the Dragonslayer. Gus the owner is a direct descendant of the origina
This was a very good mystery. Heather has a wonderful talent of bringing the scenery her story takes place in to life. I've not been in Georgia but with the details she provides you can see the taverns, the boats, the entire thing in great detail in your mind's eye. The history she gives each character is also an added charm to the story. It makes you connect with the characters that much better and the way she provides "red herrings" keeps you guessing throughout the story although at one point ...more

There are several reasons why I enjoy Heather Graham's books so much. First, I love ghost stories and it is hard to find a good ghost story these days. She also has the historical element to all of her books, which I find to be both interesting and a lot of fun. They are fairly easy reads and aren't usually more than 400 pages so you don't have to worry about an overload of details. You begin reading, you learn some interesting history about the setting and background of the story, and the plot ...more
When recent FBI academy graduate Abigail (Abby) Anderson returns home to the family restaurant, the Dragnonslayer, in Savannah, GA, at her grandfather's request, she finds him dead under unusual circumstances. She also discovers that a serial killer may be prowling the Savannah night. When local authorities think her concerns are the result of her grief, she calls in a special FBI group, the Krewe of Hunters. Each member has his/her own extraordinary skills. Abby finds that she has more in commo ...more

I finally figured out who the killer was before the end of the story! This book was filled with the history of Savannah, GA and I learned a lot while enjoying a good mystery. I enjoyed the idea of a pirate ghost as a killer. Graham describes many historic locations in Savannah including the tunnels that run under the city. These tunnels were used for many reasons, including some that Graham has invented in her story. This story made me want to visit Savannah. Good book!
4 stars for the book and its characters... except for Abby, she gets 1 star. How can a trained FBI agent not be suspicious of those around her, no matter how close to family they are? There is a serial killer/rapist on the loose, who seems to have killed her grandfather but she doesn't even want to consider one of them is the killer because she has known them for most of life. Not to mention that she has spent the majority of her adult life away from her town. How can she be so instinctively wea ...more
