My name is Amelia Gray. I'm the Graveyard Queen.
Restoring lost and abandoned cemeteries is my profession, but I'm starting to believe that my true calling is deciphering the riddles of the dead. Legend has it that Kroll Cemetery is a puzzle no one has ever been able to solve. For over half a century, the answer has remained hidden within the strange headstone inscriptions and intricate engravings. Because uncovering the mystery of that tiny, remote graveyard may come at a terrible price.
Years after their mass death, Ezra Kroll's disciples lie unquiet, their tormented souls trapped within the walls of Kroll Cemetery, waiting to be released by someone strong and clever enough to solve the puzzle. For whatever reason, I'm being summoned to that graveyard by both the living and the dead. Every lead I follow, every clue I unravel brings me closer to an unlikely killer and to a destiny that will threaten my sanity and a future with my love, John Devlin.
What I thought of this book.
Things are getting stranger for the graveyard queen as she finds out more and more about who she is and the dead want from her. Could contain spoilers but I try had not too!
So I totally forgot to review The Prophet which was book three, and it’s been to long ago for me to do a full review so lets just say things with Devlin got settle a bit. His ghost are gone and him and Amelia are trying to make it as a couple, but now there are some things out there threatening Amelia again.
Something evil is threatening Amelia and she found out someone from a long time ago has her exact name and she looks a lot like her. Her father finally confesses that it was his mother and she was very unique person. So with Amelia’s bloodline from both sides of her family and being born of a dead mother she is not sure exactly what she is, but something besides just the dead want her.
Amelia has been fascinated with the Kroll cemetery and now she has been asked to restore it. Though it’s not just the living that want her at the cemetery because the dead are restless. But is it just the dead that are in Kroll or is there something more evil.
Won’t say anything more as I don’t want to spoil. 🙂
The Visitor was a great mix of paranormal weirdness and mystery which I love. Amelia is a great and fascinating character. Devlin is alluring and haunting which makes him very interesting. In this installment we learn that Devlin knows a bit more about her than he has let on as his grandfather doesn’t want him to associate with her because they know what she is. Devlin is so skeptic, even when he sees things happen in front of him. He just doesn’t want to accept that those type of things exist.
With how things left of I so can’t wait till the next book comes out! This is why I hate being caught up with a series…lol.
Khristine Hvam has quickly become a favorite narrator. She does a great job with this series although her male voices are not extremely unique, they are decent. Some times it’s best not to try to hard and make them sound horrid. 🙂
