Publisher's Summary

Deep in the shadowy foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains lies a dying town....
My name is Amelia Gray. They call me The Graveyard Queen. I've been commissioned to restore an old cemetery in Asher Falls, South Carolina, but I'm coming to think I have another purpose here.
Why is there a cemetery at the bottom of Bell Lake? Why am I drawn time and again to a hidden grave I've discovered in the woods? Something is eating away at the soul of this town - this withering kingdom - and it will only be restored if I can uncover the truth.

Creepy in a good way.

Really good second book in the Graveyard Queen series. I really like how the story unfolds for Amelia, how she discovers the towns secrets and how they effect her. At times it's a little predictable but getting there is a treat. Amelia and Thane are interesting and likeable and finding out how they've been manipulated is a very good read.

Khristine Hvam does a great narration but then I knew that from the Jane Yellowrock books she also narrates. I don't know a thing about a southern accent but I like to think that it's as Khristine represents it. In these books the accent makes the story all the creepier. I certainly hope they stick with her for the narration of the third book, The Prophet. Hopefully it will show up on audible soon.

Good continuation - but.....

Good second book in the series which sees another graveyard needing restoring by Amelia but this one has some creepy surprises in store for her. Along with the plot, which is dark and creepy, it also tells us more of Amelia's beginnings and thus why she can see ghosts. However, there just wasn't enough romance in it for me to enjoy fully.

Worth my credit? Mmmm again, 50/50 I will continue with this series now I am 2 books invested into it but if I hadn't ever started the series then it would be a no.
