I've always loved cemeteries. They're huge open spaces, often crawling with wildlife, beautiful, old trees and full of history. I love seeing gravestones, reading inscriptions and seeing what decorations have been used and what keepsakes have been left. Maybe it's as voyeuristic as reality television but I find it very calming. This series sums all that, feeding my little ghoulish appetite, while throwing in southern charm, a dash of horror and big helping of mystery.

The author manages to build the feeling of the South, without having to drag an accent out every other word. Her ghosts and goblins are suitably chilling without being overdone. While her tie ups with men are a bit annoying while I would rather be chasing down ghosts and odd shadows, they are at least essential to the story in some way, rather than being an attempt at throwing in a paranormal romance. The main character is in many ways almost a little too quiet and passive at times, but the story makes up for it. By not being the sassy, brash character so many authors write the real gems of the story and world building can come through. And in all honesty, I'm a little tired of the kick butt ninja-wannabe girls so full of snark the other characters can't get a word in. She is actually a more realistically and better realized character. She doesn't gnash her teeth, threaten retribution or cry over her terrible circumstances. Instead she pulls herself together and goes back into the fray. If anything it makes her stronger than a lot of those characters out there wielding uzis and blades. She has very little to call on and yet she gets up every morning, deals with ghosts both literal and figurative and gets things done.

Definitely a recommended read. ( )

Amelia Gray leaves Charleston and travels to Asher Falls, South Carolina where she’s been commissioned to restore a cemetery. She thinks she needs to put some space between herself and Devlin, the man who led her to break the rules that have kept her safe from the supernatural her entire life.

Asher Falls is quite literally a ghost town. You can almost hear the silence in the empty streets, boarded windows, and even a stopped clock in a tower. Those same streets are populated with ghosts when night falls. And only Amelia can see them. The townspeople are obviously hiding something and most of them are really dislikable.

The Kingdom was creepy, with a gothic undertone, and filled with frightening atmosphere. The book also takes on a more evil and paranormal tone than the first book, [b:The Restorer|9722219|The Restorer (Graveyard Queen #1)|Amanda Stevens|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1327904796l/9722219._SY75_.jpg|14610994]. The cemetery she has to restore is eerie but no match for the older watery grave that is under the lake right outside the house she is staying in. The ghosts have grown bolder and appear often.

I recommend The Kingdom to fans of mystery, suspense and the paranormal. I'm not normally a fan of paranormal mysteries at all, but for some reason I really like this one. While this book can be read as a standalone, I do not recommend it because the connection between Amelia and her relationship with ghosts is more fully explained in the first book. ( )

The Kingdom
By: Amanda Stevens
Narrated by: Khristine Hvam
Series: Graveyard Queen, Book 2
This book really brings a dark and heavy atmosphere feel as the author describes the town Amelia has to work in next. She thinks it is just effecting her but once she arrives in town everyone is feeling something dark and strange. This town has lots of secrets that can cost Amelia her life! Many secrets of the family are explored too! The Graveyard Queen becomes the prey as she is stalked by humans and nonhumans. Great suspense and mysteries.
The narrator performs very well! ( )

I really enjoyed this. You get nearly all of the answers you're looking for after book one...everything that has nothing to do with Devlyn anyway. Sure, I saw some of it coming, but not all.

This one was even creepier than the first one for me. LOVED that!

Looking forward to reading on. ( )
