It has been so long since I picked up a Krewe of Hunters book. I was pretty excited when my random TBR generator spit out The Night is Alive by Heather Graham. I am a sucker for a good mystery, and if it involves ghosts trying to help solve it, even better.
The story in The Night is Alive was very interesting and included facts about Savannah, GA that I was unaware of. I thought the way that Graham included the tunnels, in their historical significance and as a plot device, in this story was great. I did figure out who the murderer was largely due to the sound clues that one of the survivors gave the Krewe team.
I feel like Abby and Malachi’s romantic development took a backseat to the mystery. It was still there and there were times when their passion was high. I just felt like it was secondary and at times perhaps a bit rushed. This might have been because, in my opinion, Abby is a bit childish where Malachi is concerned. I can certainly forgive that though as she experiences a pretty major loss in the beginning of the book. Malachi is a steadfast and level-headed man. He reminded me a lot of Jackson. I think the Krewe will benefit from his addition and I’ll be happy to see this couple in future Krewe books.
In the end I enjoyed my time with The Night is Alive. I doubt that it will be one that I pick up again in the future but it was a good read. I have a lot of work to do to get caught up with this series!
