My name is Amelia Gray.

I am the Graveyard Queen, a cemetery restorer who sees ghosts. My father passed down four rules to keep me safe and I’ve broken every last one. A door has opened and evil wants me back.

In order to protect myself, I’ve vowed to return to those rules. But the ghost of a murdered cop needs my help to find his killer. The clues lead me to the dark side of Charleston—where witchcraft, root doctors and black magic still flourish—and back to John Devlin, a haunted police detective I should only love from afar.

Now I’m faced with a terrible choice: follow the rules or follow my heart.

The Graveyard Queen Series:

Book 1: The Restorer (May 2011)

Book 2: The Kingdom (April 2012)

Book 3: The Prophet (May 2012)

About the author:

Amanda Stevens lives in Houston, Texas, with her husband and a black cat named Lola. She is an avid reader, a fledgling taphophile and a collector of Alfred Hitchcock memorabilia. When she’s not writing, she likes taking road trips to Austin. You can fi nd her online at or

In The Prophet, Amelia was back to Charleston, which also means back to her haunted Devlin. The interactions between Amelia and the ghosts made the story more creepy. The ghost detective who had requested Amelia to help investigate on his death, had added some mystery and suspense to the story, which also made Amelia becoming more dangerous. While Devlin was trying very hard to keep Amelia away from him, in order to protect her. I wish to see more on him telling Amelia about his feeling, and letting go of his death wife and daughter. I also wish to see a stronger Amelia when she's around Devlin.

Simple story line and yet the author is capable of presenting it in a very beautiful and not too complicated writing style. I enjoy reading the twist and turns, and the unexpected outcome from the whole investigation. I wish there would be more books for this series, as I really wish to see a more happy ending for Amelia and Devlin. I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.

Note: I receive the digital ARC of this book from the publisher via Net Gallery. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
