There are rules for dealing with ghosts. Too bad Ree Hutchins doesn't know them.
When her favorite patient at a private mental hospital passes away, psychology student Ree Hutchins mourns the elderly woman's death. But more unsettling is her growing suspicion that something unnatural is shadowing her.
Amateur ghost hunter Hayden Priest believes Ree is being haunted. Even Amelia Gray, known in Charleston as The Graveyard Queen, senses a gathering darkness. Driven by a force she doesn't understand, Ree is compelled to uncover an old secret and put abandoned souls to rest--before she is locked away forever....
My Thoughts :
I really enjoyed the Graveyard Queen books and hope that one day there will be more of them. This pre-quel to the series, as far as I can remember, was always unavailable to me via Kindle but while browsing the other day I noticed this short story was now ok for me to buy! I snapped it up quick and couldn't wait to curl up with it.
Not told from the perspective of the Graveyard Queen herself, this story is told by Ree, a student who is helping out at a private mental hospital. She manages to get involved in something very sinister and also happens to get to know a ghost hunter along the way.
The story isn't very long but it is full of details and action. I really liked the story and had it read within a half an hour. Well worth checking out if you want to see if the series really is something for you. However with the mystery and the ghosts why shouldn't it be? Oh yes and the graveyards and mental hospital add a nice touch. Nothing more spooky than those two together!
