Krewe of Hunters is a paranormal mystery series born out of Heather Graham’s Harrison Investigations series. The Krewe itself is a government unit that has been created to deal with murders with supernatural undertones, under the supervision of paranormal investigator Adam Harrison.
The elite unit of paranormal investigators is called on to solve cases linked to historical mystery involving legendary crime and serial killings, war events and hauntings. The Krewe draw on their various abilities such as telepathy, mind reading, communication with the dead and supernatural intuition to solve unexplainable crimes. The stories in the book series are located mostly in Virginia and New Orleans, with some well-known legends used as themes.
This series is well-loved by readers who enjoy a mixture of mystery and history, thrown in with the creatively crafted contrast of life between two different eras. The contrast is also shown through the types of technology and methods used to solve mysteries, and the differences between what is considered ‘normal’ and not in either époque in the story.
The series has three distinctive groups of Krewes. This first Krewe is spread over the first part of the book series, namely Phantom Evil, Heart of Evil, Sacred Evil and The Evil Inside. This Krewe is led by Jackson Crow, a man coming from English and Cheyenne parentage. Jackson Crow is haunted by a ghost who saved his life when he was a child. Each member of the crew has a distinctive psychic talent and otherworldly experiences that come in handy to suit the job description. Jackson shares his adventures with Angela Hawkins, a police officer with paranormal perception and a past filled with deep loss. The third Krewe member is Jake Mallory, a gifted musician who is perpetually haunted by ghosts; both phantoms and a few of his own making. Whitney Tremont and Jenna Duffy make up the rest of the first Krewe, investigating inexplicable slayings and recreations of gruesome killings from another century.
In this first group of books, the reader is introduced into the world of the supernatural and how the first Krewe grapples to come to terms with their own gifts, for the good of society. It also shows how they battle to fight their own demons and resolve emotional problems that have plagued them for many years. This metaphorical aspect underlines the interconnectedness of both battles – in real life and in the alternative realm – that the Krewe Hunters are engaged in.
The second Krewe is led by Texas Ranger Logan Raintree, who is approached by Adam Harrison to create a second group of paranormal investigators. Logan has the ability to commune with the dead, a gift he might have to call upon in order to find out who, or what, is killing the women of his home town. On his team is U.S Marshal Kelsey O’Brien, dainty and gentle but armed with a supernatural intuition. The character of Sean Cameron, with his uncanny ability to delve into the world of dreams and nightmares, brings to life the conflict between reality and fantasy, lifeless and animated, as he tries to investigate movie monsters that are coming to life. Beautiful Katya Sokolov is the third member of the Krewe, delving into evil that dates back to the days of the ancient Pharaohs. Agent Tyler Montague on the other hand is well versed in the history of the war era and is roped in to investigate replica killings that rock a historical house. The second Krewe will be found in The Unseen, The Unholy, The Unspoken and The Uninvited.
The second Krewe is characterized by elements of flitting through periods of time that are separated both in time and materially, to the point of almost having nothing in common except for the spirits that link them. The history that Heather Graham weaves in to show this makes for an interesting read, and reveals creative twists of common legends that give them a fresh twist. If you are a lover of conspiracy tales and unsolved crimes, this would be the series that you will enjoy.
The third Krewe has a little bit more emphasis on the ‘real-world’ battles that the paranormal team face on a daily basis, even as they fight their supernatural battles. For instance, Jane Everett in The Night is Watching, is a talented artist with a penchant for recreating realistic images of the dead. She tries to fight her love for Sloan Trent, the policeman with whom she is working to solve the mystery of dead bodies in a nearby desert. Agent Malachi Gordon is paired with Abby in The Night is Alive. Both can connect with the dead, and through their adventures soon fall hopelessly in love. In The Night is Forever, Krewe member Dustin Blake fights to protect his client Olivia Gordon, and as the phantom dangers facing them rapidly evolve, so do their feelings for each other.
The third set in this series brings home an element of normalcy in a world that is obviously far removed from normalcy. More current books in this series, such as Crimson Twilight, are based on the progression of relationships forged by the crew members to form solid commitments such as marriage, as is the case when Sloan Trent and Jane Everett plan their marriage.
The Krewe Hunters is an exciting mystery series that is bound to get your imagination stretching into realms unknown as you set of on an adventure together with the Krewe members. Heather Graham does a remarkable job of giving each character a life of its own, fantastic, yes, but believable too. There are fifteen books in this series, and each story can be read individually. However the story is enjoyed best if you read it in the series it was written in, as the Krewes have an overarching story arch that is linked to the group they were created in.
Considering the reception that the Harrison Investigation Series got, the Krewe Hunters series is further proof of the creative prowess of Heather Graham.Book Series In Order » Characters » Krewe of Hunters
