This time we get to meet new characters as all of Jackson Crow’s original Krewe of Hunters is paired up and have an overflow of investigations.
The story is set in San Antonio Texas in the past and the present. Young women are being murdered, and all were last seen around the Alamo and the Longhorn hotel. The Longhorn isn’t just any hotel though… in room 207; Rose Langley was murdered at the hands of Matt Meyer, after being more or less kidnapped by him. The room was covered in blood, and yet her body was never found. Since then there have been more young woman slain and these murders and the mystery of the Longhorn is the first case for our new hunters.
The two characters that are focused on in this book are Kelsey O’Brien; a US Marshall who sees ghosts, is great at her job but has a certain emotional distance from people because of her ability.
Logan Raintree is part Native American and a Texas Ranger, who not only sees the dead but can also hear them.
The other characters’ of the ‘Krewe” were not really focused on a lot, and so it’s a little hard to know if I liked them or not. As with Graham’s other books, we will obviously get a chance to know each character more intimately when their story is up.
Both characters were nice, and I guess I’m going to say just a little bland from her original characters. That being said I enjoyed their romance just not as much as the previous characters and I think that you really need to give something more each time otherwise readers who have read the series will come out… a little bored.
When I read the synopsis, it sounded like an awesome read, and overall I would have to say it’s a good story but not great. The mystery side was the best part for me and for a while I was trying to figure out who the bad guy was which I like in a book. If it’s too predictable, then what’s the point right?
Overall, an enjoyable read but for me definitely not up to par with her previous books.(less)

I may have been at a little disadvantaged as I haven’t read the series from the beginning, however I still enjoyed the book. The 'Walker Paper' series follows Joanne Walker, a mechanic and ex-police officer (after being bitten by a werewolf), Irish Shaman, with gifts that she will only use to survive.
Raven Calls opens with Joanne having a 'need' to travel to Ireland; where she has to confront her past and face her future. However, she won’t be alone as her former police boss and on hold love interest Mike Morrison sends Joanne’s BFF and gruff cabbie Gary Muldoon to Dublin to try to keep her out of trouble. The two take-off on an amazing adventure fraught with mystery and danger around every corner.
I want to say more about Raven Calls, but I don’t want to spoil it for anyone. I loved this book and now I’m definitely going to go back and read through the whole series. How didn't I know about this series earlier?
There is a lot of mythology and background that makes the book somewhat confusing if you haven’t read any of the previous books. Although, in saying that, I found learning about the lore, legends and history were quite fun. Many parts of the book had me smirking and laughing! I love that in a book, it’s the easiest way to get me hooked on a series.
