A place of history, secretsand witchcraft.
Devin Lyle has recently returned to the Salem area, but her timing couldn't be worse. Soon after she moved into the eighteenth-century cabin she inherited from her great-aunt Mina: her "crazy" great-aunt, who spoke to the dead - a woman was murdered nearby.
Craig Rockwell - known as Rocky - is a new member of...more
Enjoyed this one. Loved the setting. Loved the history. The mystery kept me guessing right until the end. What I wasn't a fan of was how we are left hanging in the romance department. It seemed a little abrupt and with no resolution of whether they were even a couple of just fuck buddies.
That said, I don't read these books ...more
The story follows the usual pattern: the protagonists see ghosts, the ghosts are mostly helpful. Oh, and there's romance and stuff.
The thing that drove me crazy is the way the past was presented - through lectures. Whether it's on a guided tour through the area or someone is telling someone else about an event from the past, everything looks like a quote from a book on history or ...more
I knew the basics of the Salem witch trials before reading this book but I learned a lot. I have no idea at all how accurate it is but the story is richly detailed and some of course will have been adapted or created for ...more
I really enjoyed this Krewe of Hunters novel. It takes place in Salem and I like how the author choose not to place the time period of Autumn/Halloween; which is what would be typical for this type of novel and setting.
The Salem Witch Trials play a big part in this story and the history that is woven in is fantastic. Also, Wiccans play a big part in this story and I liked how they were painted in favorable light; which they should be. I have read and studied a great deal on Wicca, ...more
Recommendation: Yes, pick it up for a mystery involving paranormal elements, historical flair and the romantic side of the plot.

It has all the things that make a book spooky. Ghosts, some friendly, like Devin's aunt and some a bit more on the creepy side.
The murders have a witchy twist, which makes the setting in the ...more
This one is focused on a new member of the Krewe, Craig Rockwell aka Rocky, returning to his hometown of Salem Ma. He is drawn back in search of the murderer of a high school friend which he had found and the case was never solved. The ritualistic form of the murder and the fact that more women were now found, with the ...more
Wow I don't even know what to say about that little paragraph. I mean seriously it boils down to " except for ALL of the obvious signs that she is dead she might be alive". How moronic. It seems like each book has more asinine sections in it than the last. It's ...more
I was a bit worried starting this. It’s the 13th (unlucky number!) book in Graham’s Krewe of Hunters series. I’ve always meant to read the series, but never got around to book 1, Phantom Evil. This is a mistake that must be rectified!
While I was definitely able to get into the book without having read the others, this one was plenty good enough to make me WANT to read the rest of the series. (Thank goodness the library seems to have them all in ebook!)
get enough. This story takes place in Salem , Mass. it combines the past to
the future of murder. It was so powerful it made me think if i had any
family members that came from Salem. I already know my family history
on my father's side back to the 1200 so i did research on my grandmother sides
and behold there were some that came from Salem in the 1700. so now i am going to
research more. I have always said we don't know where ...more
At the time, I wasn't aware of it but we meet some of the characters from book one, too! I love witches, so the call to purchase this one when I saw it on the shelf was strong and I'm so glad I did! Here we follow Devin Lyle, who is an author of children's books about witches, and Craig Rockwell, newest member of the Crewe of Hunters, and a man who is haunted by the body of a friend he found as a teenager. Again, there are paranormal aspects and human aspects ...more
