The Prophet by Amanda Stevens - another clear winner

The Prophet (The Graveyard Queen) by Amanda Stevens

I just finished this thrilling conclusion to a planned trilogy and now I really wish the story was not the end of a trilogy. It's so good that I would be thrilled to read another installment.

Amelia Gray go back home to complete the renovations on a cemetery that was the centerpiece of the first book in the trilogy. Meanwhile, Amelia is in love with a haunted man and one of his ghost is far less than friendly. I don't want to spoil the plot so I won't say much more.

This story is written in first person point of view which, with this tale, heightened the suspense all the more because we could only know what Amelia is feeling and seeing. You are removed from the place you are and placed directly in the main character's shoes. Amanda Stevens manages to heighten the suspense so much that I couldn't stop reading. Again, more a thriller than romance - regardless of the fact that this one is categorized as romance, any reader who loves thrillers would enjoy this book.


Finished the following book a few days before the above book:

LabyrinthLabyrinth by Alex Archer

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Thrilling, though not quite as good as some of the earlier books in the series. Anyone who wants to start reading the Rogue Angel books really should start with the first one. The first installment helps make everything in the later books make more sense. After that, you really can read this series in any order.
