Publisher's Summary

He'll never let go....

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.

Great story - can’t wait for what’s next!

I love Darcy Coates’ imagination and writing style. While the Black Winter series is my favorite, I have really enjoyed getting to know Keira, Zoe, Mason, Adage - and Harry! Looking forward to the next installment.

Very Entertaining

This was a good sequel to the first book. Again we had afew plots going on at the same time, that keeps any book very interesting. Some plots were drawn from where book 1 left off flawlessly. The ending was quite surprising, I really didn't see that coming! If you loved book 1 don't miss out on the second book! I will definitely keep moving forward in this series. The abilities of the main character and her past is what has drawn me into this so deeply. This series so far is a true cozy mystery/ghost story tale. I highly recommend it!

Get this one! You won’t be disappointed.

1st started w/ another book in a series that contained one of this author’s books
This is a stand alone, but is even better as a second book in this series.
Won’t go over what others have put in reviews. This is a “what will happen” to the very end. Highly recommend, if into supernatural, suspense & an overall great “read.” Can’t wait for her next book in this series!
The narrator was excellent, which also helps to create the story from each characters perspective.
This review is from an Audible member & not compensated. It is just so good, that I have submitted this review.

Cozy Horror at Its Best

For those who aren't acquainted with Darcy Coates, there is no gratuitous violence, no sex, no swearing, no politics. Just a great ghostly listen with a touch of romance.

For fans who've read the Black Winter series, Mason is a close cousin to Dorran, and Kiera and Claire are twins separated at birth. Zoe is an excellent comic sidekick, who comes close to stealing the show.

Narrator Suzanne Elise Freeman is a perfect match for DC's books. However . . . there seems to be a short gasp or intake of breath at the end of every second sentence and once you've noticed it it makes it hard to listen to this title on headphones. It isn't as obvious on a speaker. Not sure if it's a breathing technique but I wish a sound engineer had cleaned it up because it's irritating. I had to turn the volume to just barely audible to continue with the book, hence only three stars for performance.

Looking forward to the next book in this series.

Main character insufferable

The story is boring, and the main character is a selfish self-centered insufferable person. Her two best friends are the only good thing about this book. They are both super funny. But Kiera is a coquettish, absurdly stubborn brat. For example, at the end of the book her best friend offers her a spare bedroom to sleep in while her burnt down house gets repaired. Instead, she asks to borrow a tent so she can sleep outside in a graveyard. She also drags her friends along and puts them in danger and uses them for money, and favors but does nothing in return for them.
