The Summoning (Krewe of Hunters #27) by Heather Graham



The Summoning

Kindle Edition, 368 pages
Expected publication: May 21st 2019 by MIRA




Goodreads synopsis:
A CALL FROM BEYOND…

When Kristi Stewart inherits a property in the old part of Savannah, she knows it comes with stories of hauntings. But she doesn’t believe in ghosts, even while she runs seances for the guests of McLane House Bed-and-Breakfast. Until the inexplicable midnight appearance of one of her infamous ancestors. Terrified, she flees into the night—and right into the arms of Dallas Wicker.

Dallas is trying to uncover the truth about a colleague who died under suspicious circumstances. As strange happenings continue to plague Kristi’s home, it is soon clear that there’s a very living threat in the neighborhood—several people have disappeared without a trace. Dallas can’t find any connection between the victims, but someone wanted them gone, and it might be linked to the history of McLane House. And that means Kristi should be very afraid.

5 Stars

This is not a new series for me. I read book one, Phantom Evil, back when it came out in 2011. I haven’t kept up with the series but I have a good chunk of these the books in my collection. This series is just a sweet spot for me. I love how all the elements combine to make not only a romance but add that dash of supernatural to just provide the right punch of awesome storytelling. 

The setting is nice too. I think the original series started in New Orleans but I was happy to see it had moved to Savannah for this book. Lots of interesting ghostly things there. The character of Kristi has known all along that her house was haunted but when she actually sees her descendants in the flesh, so to speak, she freaks out. Classic!

Dallas has come to solve the mysterious death of a colleague. He can see dead people too but it is just a bit more apt at it. I liked how the newbie melded with the veteran ghost seer. The ghosts were a hoot too. Loved that aspect.

They brought in Jackson and Angela for this story as well which just reminds us that we are in a Krewe Hunters series. Graham also does a good job of introducing characters for upcoming books in the storyline so when the next book in the series comes out you aren’t surprised by who is staring in it.

This was like reading a book written by an old friend. All the elements I love wrapped up in one book. Reading this makes me want to get more updated on the series. Check this one out. It is a keeper. Highly recommended.


I received this as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) in return for an honest review. I thank NetGalley, the publisher and the author for allowing me to read this title.
