2 Bloggers 1 Series - The Unseen (Krewe of Hunters #5)


This month Stormi and I decided to pick up another book in the Krewe of Hunters series by Heather Graham.  For those keeping track, there are three main series lines featuring various incantations of the Krewe and Stormi and I have started all three.  Luckily, they each stand pretty independently, but I need to figure out a good tracking system because I'm starting to confuse myself.  So read on for my thoughts and then hop over to Stormi's at Storm Reads and see hers!


TITLE: The Unseen (Krewe of Hunters #5)
AUTHOR: Heather Graham
PUBLISHING DATE: March 27, 2012
PAGES: 311  
SOURCE: Library

FROM GOODREADS: 1800s. San Antonio, Texas: In room 207 at the Longhorn Saloon, in the long shadow of the Alamo itself, a woman renowned for her beauty was brutally murdered. Her killer was never found. 
One year ago: In that same historic room, another woman vanished without a trace. Her blood was everywhere...but her body was never recovered. 
Now: In the last month, San Antonio has become a dumping ground for battered bodies. All young women, many of them long missing, almost all forgotten. Until now. 
Texas Ranger Logan Raintree cannot sit by and let his city’s most vulnerable citizens be slain. So when he is approached to lead a brand-new group of elite paranormal investigators working the case, he has no choice but to accept the challenge. And with it, his powerful ability to commune with the dead. 
Among Logan’s new team is Kelsey O’Brien, a U.S. marshal known for her razor-sharp intuition and a toughness that belies her delicate exterior. Kelsey has been waiting all her life to work with someone who can understand her ability to “see” the past unfolding in the present. Now she has her chance. 
Together, Kelsey and Logan follow their instincts to the Alamo and to the newly reopened Longhorn, which once tempted heroes with drink, cards and women. If the spirits of those long-dead Texans are really appearing to the victims before their deaths, only Kelsey and Logan have the skills to find out why. And if something more earthly is menacing the city’s oldest, darkest corners, only they can stop it—before more innocent women join the company of San Antonio’s restless ghosts....

MY THOUGHTS: I continue to really enjoy this series.  I had a minor setback with reading the first one of the connected Harrison Investigative series and really disliking the male MC, so I'm thrilled to say I love Logan Raintree.

This book takes place in Texas and is centered around historic Alamo and a missing diamond worth millions.  The reader gets a present-day tale as well as flashbacks to the historical incidents and I loved both timelines.  In addition, this book starts a new arc forming a spin-off Krewe team, so it was nice meeting all the new players and seeing how they come together.  Finally, I have to mention the ghosts in this one.  I really loved the Alamo ghost and I believe this book really relied on supernatural entities more than some in the past and it made it that much more enjoyable for me.

As I mentioned this before, this series is somewhat formulaic.  However, each book has its own tale to tell, and the romance is present but doesn't interfere with the action of the book, so everything is done with good balance.  I find them to be quick reads and am already looking forward to the next one.  


  1. The Alamo ghost sounds awesome. I love that mix of supernatural suspense and romance. :D

  2. OK I guess I need to get back on this series after taking a 5-6 year break. This may be where I left off. I listen to the audio though because Luke Daniels.
