Where does The Awakening rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
First 3 books in this series are the best, This book parallels book 2 in many ways, but weak in comparison.
1. Too many similarities between Jonathan Devlin and Pale Asher. Old Devlin tries to confuse Amelia about the death of Johns wife and daughter, but Amelia acts like book 3 never happened. She knew things from Robert Freemont about their deaths that made what Jonathan Devlin said meaningless. And the phone calls from the sinking car that never happened. Did author forget all about book 3?
2. Amelia and John want no more secrets, and come clean in this book. But they don't because again book 3 is forgotten. Amelia tells John she has seen ghosts since she was nine, and he makes the comment "But you never told me", and replies that he never seemed receptive due to his time working with the elder Shaw.
Again, in book 3 she did tell him everything when he finally had to let Shani go. Some how after he was shot, he forgot everything.
3. Last, is it Essie Goodwin or Goodwine. Previously it was Goodwin, now 6 books later its Goodwine.
Have you listened to any of Khristine Hvam’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes I listened to this narrator many times and like her.
Any additional comments?
See no where for this series to go from here, so am assuming this is the conclusion of the "Graveyard Queen" .
ending was rushed and unremarkable.
I listened to this book twice before writing this review, hoping I'd feel differently about this book, but have to admit this book was a bit disappointing.

First off, the first 3 books were great. Those books got me hooked and I had to see the series through. However, by this book, and the previous, the author clearly ran out of steam. For instance was it just me or did the knock on the door segment take FOREVER!!??!! And it wasn't even that interesting to boot. Also, do you think as a life long resident of a red state the author could hook this poor girl up with a concealed carry permit and a handgun by this point? She's almost been killed in every book, but thank goodness she has a can of mace. wtf? Lastly Amelia became more and more of a pathetic sappy human with each passing book; way to let your character dissolve. This author has nothing on Jeanine Frost, Danika Dark, and many many others. Way too rushed at the end and such a total disappointment. wish I had skipped this series.
