Queen of the Dead
(Ghost and the Goth, Book 2)
by Stacey Kade
Not long ago, Alona Dare was a happy, healthy, first-tier senior looking forward to finishing out her last year of high school with a bang. Then she got hit by a bus. There was definitely a bang there.
Now she's the "spirit guide" of Will Killian, goth boy. He's been able to see ghosts his entire life, whether he wants to or not. While most of his life, this has been torture, Alona has actually managed to use her spunky, take-no-prisoners attitude, to give Will a break from all the constant talking and requests for help.
But when another girl shows up with a talent to see ghosts, Will gets a little too intrigued for Alona's taste. As he gets caught up in finding out about the Order and their apparent desires to save humanity from the "echoes" of the dead, Alona goes out on her own to find a way to try and keep her memory alive.
And with Alona, nothing is ever easy.
Final thoughts: Not as fun as the first book. This one goes from cotton candy to a dark and gloomy pretty fast. And it appears that this will be yet another trilogy, if not more. Teen ghost series? Eh. Plus the cover doesn't match the book at all, which is disappointing.
