For generations, the Devlins have been members of Charleston's elite. John Devlin once turned his back on the traditions and expectations that came with his birthright, but now he has seemingly accepted his rightful place. His family's secrets make him a questionable ally. When my investigation brings me to the gates of his family's palatial home, I have to wonder if he is about to become my mortal enemy.

Mixed Feelings - Series finale ?
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.

I want MORE!
I'm feeling conflicted at the end of this book and series. I'm happy to have resolution but I'm also bereft because it's over. It's been a while since a book series has effected me so strongly. I want MORE! Maybe we could talk Amanda into writing a sequel series. I'd say more, but I don't want to include any spoilers.
Kudos to Kristine Hvam for using her vocal talents to bring the cast of characters alive for me. As I listened, I could see everything with my mind's eye.
