Book Critique: Seeing Darkness (Krewe of Hunters #30)

For review of all books in this series: Go here.

Stars: 3 / 5

Recommendation: Yes, pick it up for a mystery involving paranormal elements, historical flair and the romantic side of the plot. 

Seeing Darkness is the thirtieth book in the long-running series, Krewe of Hunters, by Heather Graham and published in May of 2020. The primary plot is centered around Special Agent Jonathon "Jon" Wolf Dickson - from the Krewe of Hunters department in FBI - and Kylie Connelly - a curator of a museum in New York City. It is set in Salem, MA.

This forms the first book in her next trilogy in the series. Pretty much from the ninth book The Night is Watching, Heather has been releasing her books in the Krewe of Hunters series in threes, creating multiple trilogies within the series. However, we do see some characters that have been floating from the beginning of the series that started in 2011 with the very first book Phantom Evil.
