My Review - 3 stars
I read this one as a ARC and just couldn't put my thoughts together. This was suppose to be an end to a trilogy and was so successful, it is now being continued as a series. I was absolutely loving The Graveyard Series, but unfortunately for me this felt like a transition novel, it didn't meet expectations and I was bored at times, so disappointed.
The creepiness is still there and done well, you can feel the presence of the ghosts and the eerie atmospheres. Can a ghost manipulate, blackmail and make you feel emotions you don't understand, absolutely, especially when you are Amelia.
I couldn't wait to read more about Amelia and Delvin, well that suspense was for nothing, but in the end I felt maybe that is for the next installment. Delvin is still haunted by his wife and child, this is done very well.
Amelia doesn't follow the rules her father taught her, she has tempted fate, hmm, I can't wait for the overall consequences of this throughout the rest of the series.
Amelia is still learning who she is and why ghost come to her. The Prophet does come together for this meaning and Amelia is fighting with understanding her past and her future. I do think Amanda Stevens is a great author and I love the characters. I am very excited to read more of this series and think the next book will be amazing. Her fans of course are happy but I think the decision may have came to late in the writing of this one.
But no rationale could convince me that the one crawling on my shoe had been an accident. I no longer believed in the randomness of the universe or the happenstance of everyday occurrences. Everything happened for a reason, and I was very much afraid this current synchronicity would be the death of me.
