Book Review: The Sinner

I am a living ghost, a wanderer in search of my purpose and place… 

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?

I found the main character in this book, Amelia Gray, to be quite interesting.  She works as a cemetery restorer for a couple reasons with the main one being the peace and solitude.   Unfortunately the second reason which as the ghosts tend to interfere with her peace.  She is really hoping that this time around will be quiet so that she will have the time she needs to get over John Devlin.  

It seems that lately her hopes just don't come true and she finds a woman who was recently buried alive.  Amelia also discovers that her old nemesis. Darius Goodwine is about asking for her help in protecting his daughter.  

I very much enjoyed THE SINNER which is the fifth in the Graveyard Queen series.  I do feel that I would have gotten more out of the book if I had read the previous ones as it did refer back to earlier happenings quite often.  It does however stand on its own so don't stress if you have had the opportunity to read the earlier books.  

I do recommend this book to any of my readers who enjoy a dark twist to their paranormal.  It does get dark at times but there is no graphic violence or sex so its up to you if you feel your kids would enjoy this book.  

*** I received this book at no charge from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.  All opinions expressed within are my own.
