Future Release Pick

The Kingdom  
Book #2  (Mar 27)

One of the most haunting & unnerving series I've read, gets even scarier. Another well written read, that starts off a bit subdued, but quickly escalates to an eerie thriller that reveals plenty.
*****
Deep in the shadowy foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains lies a dying town. Amelia has been commissioned to restore an old cemetery in Asher Falls, South Carolina, but she quickly comes to the realization that she was brought there for another purpose entirely.

And while our haunted and handsome detective doesn't make an appearance in this book, there's still plenty of hot romance to be had, as Amelia uncovers the mystery behind the strange town that is Asher Falls. What makes this an especially good read, besides the eerie backdrop, is the amount intrigue, family betrayal, incestuous like affairs, and secrets that are uncovered, along with finding out how it all relates to Amelia.

Somewhere between a Dark Fantasy and a Horror, I found quite a few scenes to be completely unnerving and extremely creepy.

“His voice came from the bottom of the stairs. He was no longer in the chamber with me. But the arm was still holding me....  I was alone in the chamber with Emelyn Asher’s withered corpse.”

In Summary, if you liked the first book, then you will definitely enjoy this one. For those who are craving a bit of thriller/horror with their Fantasy, this is the sure ticket. Reaching my top favorite series to follow, I look forward to reading more in this series and anything this author has to offer.

Warning: Some Violence & Sexual Content, but no sex.

I received an advanced copy of this book via Netgalley.  This book is set to be released on March 27th.
