Babies born behind the veil with the inabilit to see beyond the real world into the spirit world. " The Graveyard Queen series definitely gets even better with book two!

Amelia is anonymously hired to estore a graveyard out of town and winds up getting a hell of a lot les than she bargained for!

This chance to escape arose when a cemetery needed to be estored in a tiny, isolated town.

It was odd having the second ook in a series take place in the new setting with a whole new cast of characters except for Amelia.

Amelia was still attracted to him which was promising, but I ish a book hadn ’ t had it ’ s own romance.

Amelia seemed to e a level headed, fairly reasonable girl in the third nove.

Thi whole underwater graveyard scenario was creepy as hell ... But then let 's talk about the attempted sense of creepy/horror " thing " that tries to " permeate " the story .... it did n't work.

And nce again, let the cliché feast begin.Like what happened with the fifth essa, " romance " is just pitiable.

And soap-opera like? So like the first story_ ( view spoiler) [ remember the scene when she 's with Devlin?

( hide spoiler) ]_ in this one, the scenes where the characters som of th sudden decide to throw themselves at each other in a sudden fit of passion, were really strange, and eye-rolling inducing .... you know, because the EVIL was messing with them.

Instead she 's lways thinking about Devlin and his dead son, and after a while the thing just transformed itself into a creepy soap-opera! In the nd, Amelia is probably one of my least avourite characters, and after th ook, I most ertainly migh not be reading the third one.Honestly, for me, _and I do n't hink I ever aid this!

Buried under the town and the water lurks one of two cemeteries that was flooded by a dam, with ghosts of those buried in a state of unrest looking for justice, and in the mountains lays a dark evil that feeds on the reed and power hunger of the resident of he villag.

Still dealing with somethin that appen, Amelia feels a need to et bac from Charleston, she loves pull back home and a ghost that haunts her heart- Delvin, who doesn ’ t see in the memoir is still there in spirit.
