Amanda Stevens is a new author for me and I have to admit that the only reason I downloaded this book was because Khristine Hvam narrated it and I am so happy I did! I am now a fan of Amanda Stevens and I am looking forward to downloading other books by her, (even those not narrated by Khristine Hvam)! She has a way with words that made me feel like I had a ghost touching my hair! Goose bumps galore! This is hands down, a 100% "make you FEEL and SEE" story, and an awesome author and narrator combo. I am now hooked! For me, there was a gothic romance feel to "The Graveyard Queen", Amelia, the main character. And the idea of someone who is so passionate about graveyard restoration.......just wow! I NEVER expected it to end the way it did and was surprised by the "who done it". I don't like to give anything of the story away, so all I can suggest is to read the book blurb, listen to the sample offered and just ENJOY. Downloading book 2 now!

Stop everything and read this book. Talk about creepy, hair raising, bone-chilling, endearing, who-done-it awesomeness! Add in a tortured love interest haunted by a tragic past and a fiery, brave heroine that can see ghosts and you have a perfect book.
Set in Charleston, South Carolina the location is as much a character in the book as the complicated people in the story. Amanda Stevens has a real gift painting an image with her words that will linger days after the read. Just be warned that some of the images are quite horrific. I am already half way through the next book but am too much of a weenie to read it alone after dark or I would have finished it already.
I listened to this on audio and have to say that is one of the best narrations I have heard. The southern accents are done beautifully and add a real charm to the book.
Amanda Stevens is an instant favorite of mine and I will read everything she writes. (except maybe, The Dollmaker, just the cover gives me nightmares)
