The Prophet (Graveyard Queen Series #3) by Amanda Stevens

Re-read award-winning author Amanda Steven's chilling modern gothic series and relive the journey of Amelia Gray, Graveyard Queen.


My name is Amelia Gray.

I am the Graveyard Queen, a cemetery restorer who sees ghosts. My father passed down four rules to keep me safe and I've broken every last one. A door has opened and evil wants me back.

In order to protect myself, I've vowed to return to those rules. But the ghost of a murdered cop needs my help to find his killer. The clues lead me to the dark side of Charleston—where witchcraft, root doctors and black magic still flourish—and back to John Devlin, a haunted police detective I should only love from afar.

Now I'm faced with a terrible choice: follow the rules or follow my heart.

Received from NetGalley for review. Book three in a series. This book focuses on Amelia and John Devlin. I read this book without the benefit of reading the first two in the series. That's a mistake. If you choose to read this book, and I encourage you to, pick up the first two and read them before attempting The Prophet. I have since read both and then reread The Prophet, enjoying it much more. A wonderfully written story. Amelia is a great character. Imagine, a Graveyard Queen! And I just love the role of Devlin. Oh, and ghosts!!!! I love reading about ghosts. Upon finishing this book, I have several unanswered questions. I look forward to the next book to find out what happens with Amelia and Devlin. 4 stars

Amelia is back in Charleston after her adventures with the Asher clan...and back under the spell of John Devlin! The third book in the series ties up some loose ends and throws some surprises the reader's way. Amelia sets out to solve Fremont's murder, you'll remember him from The Restorer. Chills and thrills ensue, and this time we discover more about the mysterious Devlin and his past. Pick this up and you won;t want to put it down. Again, I have a waiting list of ladies ages 20-73 to read this book! Read these books if you love southern gothic paranormal/mystery/romance! Can't wait for the fourth in this series!! Keep writing Amanda Stevens!

I liked The Prophet a little less than The Kingdom. True, it ties everything nicely together, but it leaves too much loose ends for me to rate it a five-stars. It’s like the author deliberately wanted to leave a gap open so another book could be written in the series if she wanted to. Or maybe she wanted to maintain a sense of mystery at the end. Either way, I like my trilogies more nicely tied up, so that brought down the rating for me. Apart from that, Amanda Stevens once again delivers a gripping, fascinating read with protagonist Amelia Gray starring in the main role as graveyard restorer who can see ghosts. Amelia returns to Charleston, worn out after everything that happened in Asher Falls and the dreadful discovers she made about her own past. This time around she goes back to restore Oak Grove Cemetery, forcing herself to face her own fears after what happened there. But going back to Charleston also means going back to Devlin. The spirit of Devlin’s daughter comes to visit Amelia, luring her to a house where she finds Devlin and another woman. Trying to cope with her feelings of jealousy, Amelia grows fixated on Devlin’s daughter and why she keeps on haunting her, and more importantly, why she can’t let go. She also goes to see her Dad and talk about what happened in the past, and his aversion toward ghosts. The Prophet from book one makes a re-appearance. He needs to know who killed him if he ever wants to rest, so Amelia, amidst all the other commotion, goes out to search for his killer. Meanwhile a man named Darius, who’s related to Devlin’s deceased wife, shows up and threatens not only Devlin but Amelia as well. The plot thickens, and Amelia will have to come to terms with who she is if she wants to survive. She realizes there’s more to the spirit world than she ever thought possible. I liked Amelia here. Strong and capable, intelligent. Even when she sees Devlin with another woman, she doesn’t completely freak out, and she handles it as maturely as can be expected. I doubt anyone would be thrilled to see the object of their desire with someone else, but Amelia has other stuff to worry about. She’s really grown throughout this series. She’s much more confident in her abilities, less afraid of ghosts somehow. I also liked Devlin here. He was the mysterious ‘bad boy’ cop persona in book one, but he’s a real person now. I finally understand his attraction toward Amelia, and they truly had chemistry here. The plot was a bit of a let-down. It was like it picked up from The Restorer, tying up the loose ends from that book but without the urgency The Restorer and The Kingdom had. I wouldn’t have minded another visit to Asher Falls. The plot was less intense somehow, even though a lot was going on, and it was like the other wrapped up too much and didn’t explain enough. The vibe was the same though: haunting and mysterious, and the writing was solid. But because of the ending, which disappointed me because so much was left unresolved, I really want another book to wrap things up nicely. What happens to the Ashers and what the old Asher patriarch predicted or wished? Why is The Prophet so much more powerful and different than other ghosts? What will Amelia do about her heritage?

This is book three in the series. I have read all three and have enjoyed reading them all. Good plots and likeable characters. "The Graveyard Queen" is a great paranormal series.

Fantastic story. I am a fan of the Graveyard Queen series and only hope there are more to come! I highly recommend this author and series.

I really enjoyed the whole graveyard queen series. I got the first book as a daily find and after reading it, I just had to buy the second, third and prequel. While i enjoyed them all immensely, i really enjoyed the second one, The Kingdom, the best. It just had a whole new feel to it and a lot of interesting characters. Plus, it answered a lot of questions about Amelia's past. I really recommend this book and all of the graveyard queen series to anyone who enjoys a good ghost story with a little romance intertwined. I also recommend reading them in order or you may be a little confused.

I really enjoyed this series. i got the first book free from a Nook free Friday and ended up buying and reading all three. Great characters, great writing. I was totally caught up in the world she created.

Wonderful book!! Love the characters. They need to give these books a series name though, I had a hard time trying to figure out which book was in what order. I eventually had to go to the author's website.

This series is one of the best that I have ever read. Although I enjoyed the second book, the kingdom, the best this was great too. Every book was so interesting and spooky. I couldn't put these books down.

Stevens is a fine writer, with strong character development , good placing, and intriguing storylines. I love "Graveyard Queen" Amelia and have powered thru the first 3 books in a week. Will be waiting for her next ones and probably jump in to her other series, as well.
