Midnight in Savannah...
It’s a city of beauty, history…hauntings. And one of the most haunted places in Savannah is a tavern called The Dragonslayer, built in the 1750s. The current owner, Gus Anderson, is a descendant of the original innkeeper and his pirate brother, Blue.
Gus summons his granddaughter, Abigail, home from Virginia, where she’s studying at the FBI Academy. When she arrives, she’s devastated to find him dead. Murdered. But Abby soon learns that Gus isn’t the only one to meet a brutal and untimely end; there’ve been at least two other victims. Then Captain Blue Anderson starts making ghostly appearances, and the FBI’s paranormal investigation unit, the Krewe of Hunters, sends in Agent Malachi Gordon.
Abby and Malachi have a similar ability to connect with the dead…and a similar stubbornness. Sparks immediately begin to fly - sparks of attraction and discord. But as the death toll rises, they have to trust each other or they, too, might find themselves among the dead haunting old Savannah!
The narration was horrible throughout and the story felt like a rinse and repeat of the previous books. The narrator made the characters feel like cartoons characters.
loved this book. I recently visited Savanah and could visualize the places in this story.
Overall the book was good. I think there could have been less details on the history and more on what the killers motives were etc. Luke Daniels' performance was good but some of his characters sounded waaayyyy off. Malachi sounded like an old man at times and some of the old men sounded younger... The agent Will Chan sounded huskier and had an accent showing he's from Trinidad in one of the other books and in this he sounds like he's a high school kid.
I like the mystery, the characters, and the consistency of bringing in previous Kreme members, but the plot structure has become a template. Luke Daniels is fabulous at keeping the voices consistent.
Would you listen to The Night Is Alive again? Why?
Probably not, and for just one reason. I'm not sure if this is the author's fault, or the narrator's fault, but there is this one thing that I keep seeing in Heather Graham's books. And I want to scream, "for the love of GOD, please stop having educated southern men pronounce the word 'situation' as "sitchy-ashun"! I live in Texas, and have my entire life, and of course I'm acquainted with many southern men. I don't remember ever hearing any man pronounce that word in that way.
Did Luke Daniels do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
Yes, he does a great job with differentiating the characters. But i have noticed that the character Will Chan sounds different in every book.
This was a very thought provoking mystery which had me guessing and trying to figure out the killer along with the agents. I loved the romance between Malachi and Abby ... They totally fit. Luke Daniels narrative worked really well for the voices here. Great narration!
The Krewe series is awesome.. They stand alone or are great all in a row...!!! Can't stop listening and reading..!!!
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
This has to be my favorite book from the krewe series. I loved the story and characters.
this narrator makes almost every other character other than the main characters sound like old people with wobbly tremulous voices. Story was fun though.

I like the Krewe books. Heather Graham has a good formula going for her with these books. I really liked this story. I realize that real pirates are bad, but I like fictional pirates a lot- I blame Johnny Depp. The only thing is that Abby kind of whines a lot, you get over it but when she strings more than 5 sentences together it's kind of like nails on a chalkboard. The good news is that it's more Mal's book than hers so he's the focus of the book. Luke Daniels does a great job, as usual.
