So here's the deal -

This story revolves around a local legend in San Antonio Texas. 1800s at the Longhorn Saloon, which is located a stones throw from the Alamo, room 207 was the place of a murder. A beautiful young woman is killed for a diamond that her lover won in a card game, but the gem was never found by the murderer.

Present Day. Kelsey O'Brien, a US Marshall is staying at the saloon and inn, now owned by childhood friend Sandy. She has been offered a position with the FBI in

I so enjoyed learning more about the Alamo. Interesting way to get more people for the series. although does every single person need to find their true love.

I never seen to read Heather Graham's books in order, but that does not seem to matter. I really enjoy all of them. The murderer in this one took me by surprise. Always a pleasure to read the ins and outs of how the author builds the story and describes and presents her characters.
I'll give all of the long time Heather Graham fans a warning. The old Graham is probably never going to come back. I'd liken her older books to rich Godiva chocolate: rich and oh-so-sinfully bad for you, whereas her newer books are like Hershey chocolate: good, but not nearly as good as the Godiva was. This is pretty much the case here in this book.

I'll be honest and say that while this wasn't an "oh my gosh, read it until my eyeballs pop out" type of book, it wasn't bad and is an im

Had potential, but poorly written. Many characters and only two were attempted to be developed. The lengthy sex scenes were the best description going on here, but way too much of it. And though it was clearly the goal of the author to want me to LOVE Texas and everything about it (she even gives the coveted recipe for texas chili to you at the end) I ended up loathing it and every pass she made at me with it. Far too much cheesiness going on here, even for me.
4.5 Stars... Legends come to life in this haunting tale of murder and lost treasure... A new team of Krewe of Hunters is formed in the heart of Texas where history takes center stage as a serial killer continues to take the lives of young women... A hardened Texas Ranger, Logan Raintree, and a no nonsense US Marshal, Kelsey O’Brien, lead this new unit of “gifted” specialists to try to end the killing spree...

Just say no to The Unseen by Heather Graham. This is the fifth book in the Krewe of Hunters series. (You do not have to read the books in order.) The history in this book needs a major tune-up. Also, one of the main characters in the book, Kelsey, is the very definition of annoying. She follows the same pattern in this book as in previous outings, falling in love too quickly. The story was also too easy to figure out. While this book had other problems, I am so done wasting my time on this novel ...more

Very Entertaining

I enjoyed reading this book. It had a great mix of ingredients... ghosts, a mystery, a serial killer, a smart and feisty heroine and romance! What more could you want! And then the author added some Texan recipes as an encore.

I was able to get Phantom Evil,  the first book of this Krewe Of Hunters series from the Audible Romance package.  Heart of Evil  and Sacred Evil were available with audio through Kindle Unlimited.   The Unseen is not in either program so I requested the CDs through Interlibrary Loan.

Luke Daniels'  narration is a total win. I'm sure the library hates me for all the reque Theand

Heather Graham is kicking off a spin-off series to her Krewe of Hunters books, with this romantic-suspense, peppered with paranormal elements. As someone who has never read the original series, I can tell you that this is a great place for new readers to jump in, since a crew of all-new characters are introduced. And I never felt lost at any time.

Jackson Crow is the leader of a paranormal law enforcement group and he is putting together the second team of its kind to help investigate

The Unseen is the latest book by Heather Graham. I can say this book belongs in some part to the Krewe of Hunters series or at least it runs parallel to that series.

Jackson Crow, the leader of the original Krewe of Hunters is in Texas organizing a second crew, since his original group is already too busy working many cases and they are not enough for all the demand of work they have. They need more people and here is where Texas Rager Logan Raintree and U.S. Marsh

First thought: I really like the new team :)

What I Thought of the Case: The Unseen is set in San Antonio, TX and as a Native Texan I had to love it! As a history buff, I loved the setting even more. It was centered around The Alamo and the history of a missing diamond. The killings were very much committed by humans but the
As a lover of the Krewe of Hunters series I was super excited to see this spin-off series featuring a new Krewe of Hunters.
I enjoyed the book it had everything that I love about Heather Graham’s writing. It had the murder mystery, the ghosts, and the psychics and then it had the romance but I usually just think of the romance as being a part of the story that was just there.
While I really enjoyed the mystery aspect of the story and the ghost part, I feel there was something missing i

This is my first story by Heather Graham, and I have to say it was pretty good. I don't usually read paranormal stories but this was done very well. Kelsey O'Brien is a U.S. Marshall that has a special ability that she sees ghosts and that helps her find victims of brutal crimes, has been picked to join a special task force to help solve unsolved murders. Logan Raintree is a Texas Ranger with the ability to see and speak to the dead,if he touches the body he can speak to them. The case they are ...more

Once again the Krewe from Heather Graham's previous works have reappeared, this time in San Antonio.

Someone is killing young women around town. How are they connected to The Alamo, a hotel called the Longhorn, and a cursed diamond that's been missing for over 100 years?

I always enjoy Heather Graham's stories weaving the paranormal and a good mystery. The romance between Logan and Kelsey is just a small part of this novel, but fits nicely into the storyline. Logan, a Texas

This is the start of the second Krewe of Hunters. Jackson Crow comes to San Antonio to form a new team with Logan Raintree as its leader.

It gets a half a star more because it has a Texas Ranger among other things. As all the other books in this series it recalls a past event. The events in this book go back to the time before the Battle of the Alamo when a beautiful Rose Langley was killed at the Longhorn Saloon. Recently, a number of bodies were found and they all have some kind of co

I was maybe a bit rougher with this book in my review and here is the reason why. I have found that I either love or hate Heather Graham books. The reason for this is that when Ms. Graham starts a new series, the books are excellent, well written, well formatted, exciting, etc. As the series progress, it seems that Ms. Graham tends to let her writing "slide" and the books become more formulaic, romancy and predictable. The Unseen was no different. I reviewed the first 4 Krewe of Hunters books fo ...more

Stars: 3.5 / 5
Recommendation: Yes, pick it up for a mystery involving paranormal activities.

The Unseen is the fifth book in the Krewe of Hunters series by Heather Graham and published in March of 2012. This plot introduces the second group of elite paranormal investigators of The Krewe. It primarily revolves around Logan Raintree - leader of the Krewe at Texas - and Kelsey O'Brien - a U. S. Marshal and with equal paranormal abilities.

Book Review originally published here:

The story had its intriguing moments, and well, after reading half a dozen books by Heather Graham, it’s great that she still manages to surprise me every now and then. The combination of the urban legend from the 1800s and present day ghosts was an interesting one. Unfortunately the romance was dull – rather boring even – and the characters had almost zero chemistry.

I read this series in between my fave genre of romance as it's creepy enough to keep me slightly awake at night if I decide to read it then (I don't normally as I do get scared fast).

We now have Jackson Crow building the 2nd Krewe of Hunters team. And he got Logan Raintree and Kelsey O'Brien as the first recruits. Though the two are decidedly wary about Crow and his team and his methods. But bodies are piling up and their murders than don't seem to be related in anyway.

I did not see it coming.

Oh boy!

I was so disappointed with this installment of this series. I'm not sure why the author decided to introduce a whole new set of characters when I feel there was still much more she could do with the ones we already had. I also don't understand why she keeps making damsels in distress out of the main characters.

Like all her other books there is a female character and a male character that end up getting together. So we have this long expensive annoying sex scene that just

I didn't realize this was part of a series before I started, and it read fine as a stand alone book. It felt more like a book #1 than a mid-series book, because because this story was about the start of a new Krewe.

The mystery was interesting, with ties to Texas history, as well as current day murders. I liked the involvement of the ghosts. It was interesting and not too unbelievable.

The relationship between Kelsey and Logan seemed a bit lack luster, although they do make

This book is a history story in itself about the Alamo and the fight for Texas. Another team is being assembled since the original Krewe of Hunters had enough to keep them busy. Texas Ranger Logan Raintree is at home in San Antonio and has been approached by Jackson Crow to head another group of extra ordinary group of investigators.

A Gem with blood on It.

5 gold stars plus a million more again. From a Pirate to Galveston Texas to The Alamo to The Lone Star Saloon a gem that's caused a lot of deaths for what amounted up to be greed. A gen that caused a lot o deaths and caused a friendship to end but, really wasn't their in the first place. Only in the end did true love come out of it both from long ago and present today. Run grab a copy and find out what happened .

I really enjoyed this book. It’s got a lot of romance in it, but I’d classify it more as a crime/mystery story.
After the first 40 or so pages, the story really picks up and I could hardly put it down. It has good characters that were interesting but one thing I really loved was how Miss Graham makes San Antonio a character. It's so richly described and intricate to the story that, though I've never been there, feel as though I'm intimately acquainted with the area surrounding the Alamo.

I love a good mystery and I love a good ghost story and Heather Graham has yet to fail me on both accounts. It's been a while since I have read her book as I got so caught up with life and Netgalley and such, but I'm awfully glad that this was the one I had coming up next (since I have this thing about reading in order). A new unit being formed for the Krewe was the perfect jumping in spot for me and I'm sure I'll be back to get to know them better soon.
