The Sinner by Amanda Stevens
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
OMG, best Graveyard Queen book yet. Of course I always say that. These books keep me flipping pages and wanting more.
This has become one of my favorite series. Mystery, spine tingling terror and romance...my favorite elements all in one. Some scenes are so creepy you won't want to read them at night, but you will because you won't want to put the book down.
Stevens keeps you riveted to the page with a first person narrative that puts you right in the middle of the story.
The Sinner picks up about a year after the events of The Visitor.
(Spoilers ahead if you have not read book 4, The Visitor yet)
Devlin and Amelia split up and after the terrifying events at Kroll Cemetery. Devlin seemed to drift away, unwilling to acknowledge the supernatural occurances that were happened.
Amelia goes on with her life, even though she misses Devlin everyday. Finding out he's so clearly moved on makes things even harder.
She's been hired to restore Seven Gates Cemetery, and it doesn't take long for Amelia to stumble on a mystery and a dead body tied to that decades old mystery. Soon she realizes everything is connected as people from her past and those close to her heart are all part of a big puzzle that needs to be solved. There's more to this than your average murder mystery. Clues lead her deep into a world of evil rituals and straight into the arms of a stranger. Can he heal or broken heart or will he rip it out?
I am sad that there's only going to be one more book in this series, The Awakening, which releases in April 2017. The author says The Awakening is the end, for now at least, fingers cross more will eventully come. But the good news is that a spin off series may happen as she's working on an ebook featuring Amelia and Devlin and a new cast of characters. So that means there may be more in this world, even if it doesn't feature Amelia and Devlin.
