The Night is Alive by Heather Graham {Stephanie’s Review}


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!

  1. I love this series! I’m ever so slowly making my way through the start of the series while also reading the new releases as they come out. Great review, Stephanie!


    1. Me too! And thank you! There are so many of them but that just means we have more to look forward to!


  2. I have more work than you to catch up with this series. I think I am on book 6 since 2018 maybe and haven’t read one since then. I saw later books aren’t narrated by Luke Daniels so I lost steam. But I can still listen to all the early ones.


    1. Luke Daniels is a great narrator. If I had been reading these on audio I would be pretty bummed about that too.


  3. I LOVE that you use a random generator for your TBR! I sometimes will use a random generator for sub genre and then just browse my TBR for that sub genre. I have been wanting to try this series out though and see how her writing is now as I have only read her older historicals.


    1. It is SO much fun! I may do a post about it. I just picked my second TBR using it and I have to say I’m pretty impressed with the process!
