Review: The Night is Alive by Heather Graham

Abigail Andersen's grandfather told her that her pirate ancestor Blue would appear in times of need to watch over the family. When she sees Blue in the tunnel with Gus beneath the family restaurant, the Dragonslayer, she knows something is terribly wrong and that it is more than just an old man's heart giving out. Coupled with the newspaper articles about the women found murdered recent FBI graduate Abby feels she has enough information to contact the Krewe and ask for assistance.

The Krewe send Malachi Gordon as an FBI consultant to check out what's going on with Abby in Savannah. Malachi has something in common with Abby. He too can see Blue. Abby and Malachi must learn to trust each other before they become victims.

The Night is Alive by Heather Graham is Book #10 in the Krewe of Hunters series and is due out July 30th from Harlequin Books.

The book moves along at a fairly fast pace. I hadn't read any of the Krewe books before, and I think this one can stand alone pretty well. The action focuses on Abby and Malachi with the rest of the Krewe only as a supporting cast.

I love the setting of Savannah and the combination of real history of the city, the pirates, and the tunnels with the fictional setting of the Dragonslayer. I enjoyed the paranormal aspect as well.

If you like your mysteries with a touch of romance and a bit of the ghostly, then you will enjoy this book.
