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 have already read some books from Krewe of Hunters series and I generally like them. However this one wasn't as fascinating as some others.

Abby's grandfather dies unexpectedly and she thinks there is something strange about his death. She asks The Krewe of Hunters to investigate it. The Krewe sends Malachi whose aim is to help Abby, especially that her grandpa's death can be connected with the case of the serial killer who is kidnapping and killing young women in Savannah.

The author as always
3.5 Stars

Not the best, but still a fun edition of the series. This one takes place in Savannah and featured pirates. I did know who the killer was, well before the end, and did find it a bit unbelievable that the agents couldn't; because it was quite obvious.

I enjoyed the new characters in this story and I liked meeting up with a few of the characters from previous. I also enjoy that you can learn a lot of history from these books.

Again, still a really great story and am looking forward to 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

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

Wow, Wow, and Wow to another exciting book The Night is Alive ( book 10 of Krewe Of Hunters ) by: Heather Graham < this is a F.B.I.'s Paranormal Investigation Unit >. This book takes place in Savannah in the most haunted place in Savannah a Tavern that passes down from generation to generation and is in the care in hands of Gus Anderson and family and of the first proprietor and now Ghost Blue Anderson a gentleman and pirate. When Gus dies suddenly his granddaughter Abby come and finds him ...more

I was disappointed in this tale because although it was set in the perfect place for a ghost story (Savannah, Ga), and although the pirate premise was fresh and interesting, it seemed Ms. Graham had to write this book in a hurry and ran out of story before she'd reached her publisher's required word count. There were several places in the book where entirely too much time was spent on lengthy descriptions of scenes which did not really move the story forward: ex:, when Abby had to play the wench ...more

The best about this audiobooks is the narrator, I don't think I would enjoy as much if it wasn't for Luke Daniels.
Silly me, I thought this was going to be about Malachi from the previews book. I realised too late this was Malachi Gordon and nothing to do with the Malachi Smith the teenager who's family was killed in the Evil story.

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

Stars: 3.5 / 5
Recommendation: Yes, pick it up for a mystery involving paranormal elements, historical flair and the romantic side of the plot.

The Night is Alive is the tenth book in the Krewe of Hunters series by Heather Graham and published in August of 2013. This time around the plot revolves around Abigail "Abby" Anderson - fresh graduate out of FBI - and Malachi Gordon - independent Private Investigator and a new recruit into the Krewe of Hunters.

This forms the second book in the trilogy
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.
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
Harlequin Books
"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." RT Book Reviews, rated 4 1/2 stars

Miniseries: Krewe of Hunters
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.
I enjoy Heather Graham's books. I just didn't like this one as much. In the other books that I've read there was more of a connection between the main characters. I also had some issues with the ending.

This one gained an extra star just for making me doubt myself. The author managed to give enough reasonable suspects for me to go "WHO IS IT" which is a rare occurrence. I did guess right at one point, but had managed to talk myself out of it. Recommend.

Oh, so great to read this book! Loved the characters, the romance, the mystery, yet again! Great book, and I can't wait to read more of this series!

One of my favorite genres — and perhaps guilty pleasures — is trashy crime novels with a heavy dose of romance, cigarette smoke, cheap thrills, and sex. After reading Till Death by Jennifer L. Armentrout, which, by the way, wins every award for my guilty romance crime novel pleasure, I needed more. Unfortunately, I quickly found it’s not a genre that’s just... searchable.

So when I saw about 50 books by this Heather Graham author in our book sale (with very attractive spines, might I add) I was

Heather Graham
Pages: 378
Keywords: Crime, FBI, Romance, Paranormal, Ghosts, Some sexual content

In Short: A slow start with characters that are a little bland at first but they flesh out towards the middle of the book and the complex case keeps you turning to the last page and hoping to visit the Dragonslayer Inn again.

Story takes place in Savannah, Georgia--a city known for its pirate history and ghost stories. The Dragonslayer restaurant and inn is the scene for many of the events. Abby's grandfather owned the Dragonslayer but he was found dead of an apparent heart attack in the underground tunnels near the restaurant. A few other people were also found murdered and floating in the nearby river. Both Abby and newcomer to town, Malachi, have the ability to "see dead people". In other words, they can ...more

As slated in the previous novel by Jane, another new Krewe is introduced. However this left me thinking back to the second Krewe to count if we heard stories from them all - I think we did this time around...

I also have developed the belief that these novels are more like the game of Clue rather than a ghostbusters series.

About halfway through the copy of "Principle agents - two closets agents to the crime and investigation" (aka our main characters) was introduced. I appreciated this being
Another action-packed read in the Krewe of Hunters series. The main characters and love interests in this one, Malachi Gordon and Abby Anderson, were not actually Krewe members (yet). Abby just finished her stint at the FBI academy, and Malachi was a PI invited to assist with the case of a piratical serial killer in Savannah. The story had a strong sense of atmosphere, with lots of interesting facts worked in about Savannah history. The villain was also unexpected (though there was a rather ...more

Heather Graham's stories are really good and this time she writes about Savannah, South Carolina and the magnificent history of the pirates and their tales. Abigail Anderson had just graduated from the FBI Academy when her grandfather called her and told her he needed her and for her to come home. Unfortunately by the time she arrived, her grandfather was dead but she knew it was not by natural causes, no matter what the police said. She had heard of Jackson Crowe and knew he could help so she ...more

Would I recommend? Yes .

Things I liked:
Pirates, Ghosts, Murders
While reading these books, you seem to guess who the murderer is but in this one I had a bit of trouble guessing it.
I love the history that Heather Graham puts into each of her books. .

Overall: This book is the second book from the trilogy in the series. First one was The Night is Watching.
This book follows Abby (just finish studying at FBI Academy) and Malachi (newest Krewe Of Hunters member). Are strong and passionate

This Krewe Of Hunters book takes place in Savannah Georgia. Abby's family owns an old tavern that dates back to the day's of the swashbuckling pirates day's. Women are coming up missing and then murdered. The Krewe brings in a consultant named Malachi to help Abby try to figure out who's behind the murder's. Fast paced story with lots of pirate and Savannah history! This story leads you to believe that so many people could be the suspect. In Heather Graham's style you don't know who it is until ...more

Great characters, fun history and who doesn’t love pirates! The story followed two potential Krewe members as they tried to figure out the serial killer with the help of history and ghosts. I enjoyed all the descriptions and romance and mystery except for one thing. The killer was very obvious. I mean no question obvious after the first account. The focus on that aspect and how it did not click with the whole unit was bothersome since it had been talked about earlier in the story.

Still though I
