The Sinner - Amanda Stevens

I'm a cemetery restorer by trade, but my calling has evolved from that of ghost seer to death walker to detective of lost souls. I solve the riddles of the dead so the dead will leave me alone. 

I've come to Seven Gates Cemetery nursing a broken heart, but peace is hard to come by…for the ghosts here and for me. When the body of a young woman is discovered in a caged grave, I know that I've been summoned for a reason. Only I can unmask her killer. I want to trust the detective assigned to the case for he is a ghost seer like me. But how can I put my faith in anyone when supernatural forces are manipulating my every thought? When reality is ever-changing? And when the one person I thought I could trust above all others has turned into a diabolical stranger? 

My thoughts:
I could not put it down. I love the feeling of these books, not omg spooky I am scared. Ha, no, not that. But this eerie feeling, which just makes you want to read more to find out what is happening.

In this one, Amelia is working in a graveyard as always and comes across buried secrets. There is something out there, and then there are those secret societies again. She is also missing Devlin (and so am I). And she never gives up, ghosts wont let her. There is a case to be solved and she does have her powers that helps. 

There is suspense, secrets and the supernatural.

This was a short review, I should say more. But I just want to say that I really enjoyed it. It's a great series that I recommend.

  6. This is a series that I'm going to try. I even have book on already on my iPod. I guess I need to move it up higher on my list. Glad you're still enjoying. :-)

  7. I know this book rocked even without Devlin.

  8. Mystery suspense is totally my thing! Will definitely buy an e-book! ;)

  9. I still haven't started this series... But again this one sounds good too.

  10. I think I am so annoyed with the 'carrot dangling' over Devlin that I can't fully enjoy the series anymore. I am ready for it to be over actually, this one and the last one let me down. The eery feeling is what Amanda Stevens does well though, I agree with that.

  11. Oooooooooooooo sounds super good!

  12. I agree! I LOVED this one. Didn't you hate the ending... because it ended? :D We need the next one NOW. :D

  13. I love the sound of this! I'm more a fan of the eerie sense of dread feeling too, rather than being than flat-out scared.
