Book Review: Heart of Evil

Heart of Evil (Krewe of Hunters, #2)Heart of Evil by Heather Graham
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was the first time I read (well, listened to) a novel by Heather Graham and I must say I was impressed. It's a damn good ghost story, mystery, and crime novel rolled into one. The romance is there, but not overstated, which is exactly what I enjoy.

The book is set in Louisiana, and the setting was well-laid. I felt that it was indeed the South, and not a caricature.

I hadn't read the first book in the series, but I was able to follow along easily. The version I listened to was abridged, but I never noticed what was left out, so there was some skillful cutting there.

The Brilliance Audio version was well-performed, but I had a hard time recognizing Ashley's voice. The actor was male, and maybe he didn't want to overdo things and sound too "girlie", but it just didn't sound like Ashley to me. The other characters were well-voiced, though, and I enjoyed the performance.

Finally, I love paranormal, and the paranormal here was both believable and scary. I really enjoyed this book.
