     To say I was elated to find this on NetGalley is an understatement. And when I got the email of approval to read this title in exchange for an honest review, I damn near jumped out of my skin with excitement. 
     A little over a year ago, a good friend of mine introduced me to The Graveyard Queen series. I’m so happy she did, as I’ve really enjoyed these novels. And every single book in this series has been a great read . . . but . . . holy-freaking-moley, this one wasn't only great, but fucking awesome. It made the wait of this novel worth it. There is a ton of fantastic story in this.
     Each book in this series is a building block to a much larger story. Like its former, The Visitor gives you just enough of those blocks to leave you needing more. I mean, that ending freaking line. I was also happy to see that this one, more than the others, had a bit more of thriller bite to it; there were a few moments during the story where I totally blurted, "oh shit," because of the build of something about to happen, or something that happened. 
     I love Amelia Gray. I love this story, and I cannot wait to continue reading The Graveyard Queen as her story flourishes with each book, because every book gets better and better.

My name is Amelia Gray. I'm the Graveyard Queen.
Restoring lost and abandoned cemeteries is my profession, but I'm starting to believe that my true calling is deciphering the riddles of the dead. Legend has it that Kroll Cemetery is a puzzle no one has ever been able to solve. For over half a century, the answer has remained hidden within the strange headstone inscriptions and intricate engravings. Because uncovering the mystery of that tiny, remote graveyard may come at a terrible price.
Years after their mass death, Ezra Kroll's disciples lie unquiet, their tormented souls trapped within the walls of Kroll Cemetery, waiting to be released by someone strong and clever enough to solve the puzzle. For whatever reason, I'm being summoned to that graveyard by both the living and the dead. Every lead I follow, every clue I unravel brings me closer to an unlikely killer and to a destiny that will threaten my sanity and a future with my love, John Devlin.
