AN AIRLESS TOMB. AN UNSPOKEN CURSE 1898: Bound for Chicago, the freighter Jerry McGuen goes down in Lake Michigan, taking with it every man aboard. But what other fate could befall a vessel carrying the ill-gotten sarcophagus of an Egyptian sorcerer? Because a curse unspoken is no less deadly. Now: A veteran diver and "ghost ship" expert is exploring the legendary wreck for a documentary. He dies inexplicably inside the freighter's main saloon. Then another diver is killed and panicked rumors rise like bubbles from the lake: ancient demons have awakened below! The expedition's beleaguered financier calls paranormal investigator Katya Sokolov to Chicago to save the film -and perhaps some innocent lives. Along with media forensics guru Will Chan, Kat plumbs the depths of an evil that may date back to the time of the Pharaohs. But some secrets are best drowned in the seas of the past....(Goodreads).
Today I finished reading The Unspoken, book 7 in Krewe of Hunters series. I have to say that I am getting bit bored with this series. It has become very formulaic, which is bit disappointing for me and I like Heather Graham very much. I have read a lot of her other books and I've never gotten bored with any of them. But this series is getting boring for me. Mind you I have only read book five The Unseen, book six The Unholly so far.
Aside from this series becoming formulaic, this story was OK I guess. I liked the mummy part of the book, I liked the mystery and bit of Egyptian history. I liked most all of the characters and I was glad to see some of the characters from the previous books. Another thing I was bid disappointed in the paranormal aspect of these books. Yes we have talking ghosts but that's it. These ghost do nothing else other than appear in several different scenes. I guess I was expecting more from these ghost, to wreck more hell so to speak. Also romantic aspect of these series becoming very predictable and boring; there is not romantic chemistry or tension between the character. So at best romance was bland.
Overall this was OK read for me, I enjoyed it to some point but I could not help think that it was identical to the previous books in the series, only difference was that the scene of crime was different and different characters. I think that the author should have made this book into a trilogy that way series remains fresh and avoid the sameness in every book. I am giving this books 2 stars only and this saddens me very much :( because i want to give it more stars but I can not. Maybe book eight, The Uninvited, will be better.
I give this book 2/5 STARS - Happy Reading!!!
