Heart of Evil (Krewe of Hunters #2) Reviews
Another reviewer summed up this review really well:
"Heart of Evil is the second book in the Krewe of Hunters series and it is quite different to the first one. Heart of Evil contains the same characters but this time it focuses on Jake. While, I think that you don’t have to read the first one in order to understand this one I would definitely recommend reading the first book, Phantom Evil before this one; especially if you want to know more about the characters backgrounds and things like that." ...more
Oh, Heather Graham...what have they done to you? Did you sit in a meeting, after the success of the first book, in this series, and listen to some asshole in a suit tell you how to make your series more marketable? Did he say, more ghosts--ghosts are in right now? Did he say, more romance--romance is big? Did he say, let's dumb it down a bit--people are stupid?
If he did say those things, you seem to have taken them to heart because this book is an insult to the one that preceded it. I gave that ...more

The opening scene / prologue, where the two main characters have nightmares, was a real eye-opener and gave way to how the rest of the book would go. Jake and Ashley’s (main characters) introduction into the story couldn’t have been more perfect.
As the first chapter progressed, it was rather humorous and made me giggle. Then things began to get spooky in a good way considering it‘s a paranormal mystery. I enjoyed reading the parts from the murderer’s point of view. It made the tale more captivat ...more
Compared to book one, I liked the story better in this book, but I liked the characters better in the first one. The characters here came across as rather flat.
I also had an issue (one of those must suspend disbelief kinds of things) with the fact that Jake, who previously was pretty much just a musician that also apparently helped to find people (unless I’m mistaken on that aspect), now is a full fledged FBI agent that knows all about protocols, procedure and apparently the knowledge to give a ...more
This book was just OK for me. It was a good story and it flowed fine but it wasn't something that I would read again or necessarily recommend. If you are a Heather Graham fan you will like it.
