Where dreams go to die...

Starring in a cult TV show was a blessing for Marnie Davante, especially now that her former fame could support her future dream of starting a children’s theater. So she’ll work the convention circuit. But then a costar is brazenly murdered in front of her. With a killer who vanishes into thin air with seemingly inhuman skill, and strange even

I've given this a B for narration and a D+ for content at AudioGals, which ends up around 3 stars.

While Fade to Black is billed as (wait for it!) twenty-fourth in Heather Graham’s Krewe of Hunters series, there is (fortunately) no need to have read or listened to any of the others, as the novel is basically a standalone. I’ve been on a bit of a romantic suspense kick lately and the synopsis – a story of murder involving cast members of a cult TV show – sounded interesting, so I requested a r

This time, I have in my possession all three books in Heather Graham's latest Krewe of Hunters trilogy. This series features three brothers, Bryan, Bruce, and Brodie McFadden, and the women they grow to love in the course of a paranormal crime investigation.Fade to Black, the first in the series, features the oldest brother, Bryan McFadden.

Fade to Black opens in dramatic style. The cast of a popular older show, now in syndication, Dark Harbor, is participating in a Comic Con in West Hollywood. F

3.5 stars.

Even though these are ghost stories, they are very easy reads and not too terrifying at all. This book introduces the first of three McFadden brothers, whose actor parents died during a theatre show and started haunting their three sons soon after. Talk about never getting rid of your parents!

So with their special abilities to see ghosts, they are prime candidates for the Krewe, especially since they are also war veterans with PI licences. When a Hollywood friend of their parents died

This was my first time listening to a book in this series, but when I saw that Luke Daniels was narrating I jumped for it. He did a fantastic job with the characters and it was fun hearing hints of Oberon and Orla (Iron Druid Chronicles).

Fade to Black begins at Comic-con where Marnie Davante a famous sitcom star, makes an appearance, to help fund her dream of opening a children's theater. Things turn upside down when her co-star is murdered by a man dressed as a comic villain. Meanwhile, PI Brya

This latest Krewe of Hunters addition did not have me spell bound so I'm not going to say too much about it. I think it will appeal to readers who like superheroes and comic books, which I'm simply not into. I'll still be reading the next one by Heather Graham though. ...more

This series is always an easy, enjoyable read. I don't read them in order but rather pick them based on what's available at the library at the time. I don't have s hard time reading them this way, as each is it's own story with new characters aside from the boss, Jackson Crow. Each of these characters is enjoyable and well written. ...more

Sigh, it was so nice to get back to my guilty pleasure... the Krewe of Hunters. Love this series!❤
This was another really good read about the special FB I unit that deals in the paranormal. The murder takes place at a comic-con where a man, in full costume kills one of the cast members. The cast was from a series, that still played on re runs, and dealt with slaying vampires,or werewolves, or demons, that had inspired a cult following. Bryan McFadden, who has helped out people before in distress, is talked into intervening on their behalf by his parents. It does not matter that they are A li ...more

It was a quick read. I finished to find out who the killer was. The romance was...not really believable? Honestly, this felt like "omg I need to finish a book really fast, let me not worry about slowly developing the relationship between the leads." ...more

I love these Krewe of Hunters books this is #24but the first of the three McFadden Brothers. Bryan, Bruce, and Brodie. The next is Pale As Death which is Bruce's story and, I need to find it or buy it Lol.
This was Bryan and Marnie's story and it's cool.

Stars: 3 / 5
Recommendation: Yes, pick it up for a mystery involving paranormal elements, historical flair and the romantic side of the plot.

I’m so glad I didn’t completely give up on this series- the last few books has gotten me excited and interested in the Krewe of Hunters again.

Love this series. Besides liking paranormal stories, I like the history of the settings where the stories take place. The characters are well written and the story line is very good. I do recommend this series but should be read in order. Looking forward to the next one.

For some reason i didn't feel so spelled bound reading this book as i did with her other books.
There was just something that seemed to drag and i got bored while reading it. i try hard not to skip pages to keep the moment but this time i felt like it was just slow moving. It is a great book if you are more into romance then action. The mystery was hard to follow. Someone wanted power, willing to kill for it, and someone had to die. The basic mystery.

Another great book in this series. I love how the characters intertwine and you continue to see them in future stories. Cannot wait for the next one!!

Thank you NetGalley and Mira for the eARC.
This was my first Heather Graham book and I wanted to read it because she's enormously popular. Unfortunately I didn't enjoy it at all. In my opinion it was boring and after reading about half of it, I gave up. Obviously my opinion is in the minority ... this just wasn't my type of read.

I can't read her books anymore. Every book is the same book, the same plot, nothing new. Someone is murdered or missing, guy meets girl, both can see ghosts, guy and girl don't like each other at first, then they do, then they both accept their ghost seeing, then they fall in love, solve mystery, and live happily ever after. At book 24 of the same thing I am done. ...more
So, context: I started in earnest to immerse myself in reading romance novels. I enjoy romance arcs in literary fiction and fantasy books, so I felt compelled to try a true romance novel and find a style (or two or three) of romances I want to continue reading. I picked up FADE TO BLACK because I read the first two chapters in a free sampler of "Summer Romance" titles.

The first two chapters sold me on downloading the entire book digitally from SPL via the Libby app. However, the more I read the

I have enjoyed Heather Graham’s Krewe of Hunters series from the very beginning. A mixture of paranormal and suspense/mystery these stories always keep me entertained and on my reading toes. There have been many stories and just as many couples. I’m always glad to be reunited with old book friends and FADE TO BLACK brought back several of my favorite characters in one way or another. Yet it was a persistent ghost and a man willing to follow his mother’s request, even

This was not as suspenseful as her other books I've read. I thought the story dragged too much before it finally got interesting. Marnie is the main character who is known for the TV show "Dark Harbor" which was once a big hit and is hoping the show gets revamped. Unfortunately during a comic-con convention the cast members are doing an appearance and one of the cast, Cara, is killed by someone in a costume of "Bloodbone", a character from the TV show Dark Harbor. Cara then then appears to Marni ...more

Marnie Davante is an actress of a show with a cult following, but someone has it in for the main cast , a comic super villian named Bloodbone has just killed Clare Barton, Marnies tv mothers, and now her ghost is haunting Marnie.
Bryan McFadden and his two brothers lost their parents both actors in a tragic accident, but that isn't the only thing the close brothers have in common, they see ghost. Unfortunately for them their mother and father stayed behind saying their boys still needed guidance,

When I first picked up the novel, the first thing I was excited for that there was finally a new set of cast members! However, these names seemed familiar so the beginning was hard to focus as I tried to remember the past.

The first four chapters just seemed to repeat themselves regarding the murder of Cara. It became a bit tiresome.

I did however appreciate the return of the killers/masterminds point of view.

And then later we read there was a mastermind and within the text the Blood-bone killer

"Fade to Black" is okay but nothing to write home about. Neither the characters or the plot are well developed. I couldn't feel anything for them. Suspense was missing. I enjoyed the earlier books in the "Krewe of Hunters" Series very much. Earlier books in this series hold your interest and, when reading them, you hate to put them down.

Heather Graham has always been, and still is, one of my favorite authors. To me, I believe she is writing too many books a year. In doing this, her books are los

Fade to Black by Heather Graham was interesting. I was hooked. The plot quickly introduced me to the cast of characters, gave me their story and told me what they were dealing with. I enjoyed watching the living squirm with the idea that their loved ones were haunting them a bit. A gruesome murder needed to be solved and the ghosts were going to stay until it was solved. But they needed an expert investigator and for their living friends to help with the case. So many possible suspects, it was h ...more

Thank goodness! I believe I need to stick to Krewe of Hunters books because I have had disappointment with some of the other series by Heather Graham even though I liked them in the beginning. The Krewe has always been good and this book is no exception. I really like the character Bryan McFadden and the idea that his brothers will have books, too. Marnie is a little different. She seemed really nice at first but turned into a flat-out witch when Bryan turned up and was trying to help. I underst ...more
Back to Hollywood, with the 1st of three brothers. Bryan McFadden out of the service and pondering what to do with his life. He's friends with Jackson Crowe, but his brothers are kicking around the idea of forming a PI-type company.

Small catch, his mother (who is a ghost) has a mission for him. He heads to Hollywood to help solve a murder, and protect Marnie ... with the help of the Krewe.

This was a fun one. I enjoy the Hollywood based stories ... the Comicon environment was an interesting setti
