4 1/2 Stars

The more I read of the "Graveyard Queen" series the more I love it. The Kingdom is the second installment in this fabulously original and suspenseful urban-fantasy series. I didn't think Amanda Stevens could outdo herself after I read "The Restorer" (the first book), but she definitely came through with flying colors. Not only are the characters well developed, the storyline is solid and strong. I often find myself distracted a bit while reading books, but that is definitely not the case with this series. I don't skim over pages wanting to get to the next great scene. I read every word. Ms. Stevens doesn't waste words when writing to "fill space," she simply writes beautifully constructed stories that capture you and keep you on the edge of your seat.

In this book the main character, Amelia Gray, finds out more about her past and why she has the powers she does. In a genre that has so many great authors and series, Amanda Stevens' Graveyard Queen stands out (in a good and fabulous way). I would have to say it is one of my favorite newer series. The books aren't predictable... there aren't the usual vampires and werewolves to read about; simply put they are original, entertaining, well written, and extremely good reads.
