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.

The first book took me a while to get into. I think probably it was because of how proper everyone sounded. I'm not from the south, but where I'm from we speak our mind and not tip toe around what needs to be said or done. The series was great and you felt every emotion. Sad, angry, happy, annoyed, scared, grossed out and everything in between. The narrator throughout the series was incredible. I'll be listening to these again in the future!
