USA Today bestseller and rising queen of atmospheric horror Darcy Coates returns with a ghost story that will haunt you long after the final page.

Keira, hired as Blighty Graveyard’s new groundskeeper, lives surrounded by the dead. They watch her through the fog. They wordlessly cry out. They’ve been desperately waiting for help moving on—and only Keira can hear them. But not every restless spirit wants to be saved.

Sometimes the dead hate the living too much to find peace.

As Keira struggles to uncover the tangled histories of some of the graveyard’s oldest denizens, danger seeps from the darkest edges of the forest. A vicious serial killer was interred among the trees decades before, his spirit twisted by his violent nature. He’s furious. Ravenous. And when Keira unwittingly answers his call, she may just seal her fate as his final intended victim.

My thoughts:

This is not a Christian book. I just enjoy reading spooky books once in awhile and if I can find one that is pretty clean I consider that a win. There are a few curse words but otherwise deals with supernatural scary things that I know aren’t true but fun to read about for me.

I didn’t read the first book in this series but the author does a good job of catching the reader up on what was going on. At first I wasn’t overly interested in this book but the more I read the more the danger increased and the more invested I got in the book.

If you like scary reads with many twists and turns I am sure you will enjoy this read.
