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.

Like the first book in the series, this book does scary in a great way. I would not suggest starting at 8pm because it sucks you in and you will want to read all night.

This story is not only complete in itself, but is also definitely part of a series. We get to learn a lot of Amelia’s history. I found it very interesting and a great expansion on the first book.

One thing that surprised me was how strong Devlin’s presence is, even though he isn’t physically present. I didn’t realize how strong Amelia’s feelings for him were, until this book. It adds a subplot to the story that will continue into the third book.

I am so looking forward to the third book. I can’t wait for it to come out. This is one series that I love!
