The Abandoned By Amanda Stevens

Published: March 14, 2011

There are rules for dealing with ghosts. Too bad Ree Hutchins doesn't know them.
When her favorite patient at a private mental hospital passes away, psychology student Ree Hutchins mourns the elderly woman's death. But more unsettling is her growing suspicion that something unnatural is shadowing her.
Amateur ghost hunter Hayden Priest believes Ree is being haunted. Even Amelia Gray, known in Charleston as The Graveyard Queen, senses a gathering darkness. Driven by a force she doesn't understand, Ree is compelled to uncover an old secret and put abandoned souls to rest—before she is locked away forever....
An ebook exclusive prequel to The Graveyard Queen series.

Ree is currently a student at a grad school in Emerson and is also a volunteer at a mental hospital.  She had a favorite patient named Violet, who then passes away of old age.  She overhears a conversation that reveals that there is a secret lingering within the facility, which relates to the paranormal experiences she encounters. 

This piece of literature was a decently written short story.  I didn't have a grip on this book for the first  couple chapters, but after a while, i got absorbed into it by the suspense this story was giving off. I'm a sucker for romance stories, and this one had a little spice into it! What i didn't like about this book was that it was very brief of the character Amelia, although i grew interest in Ree.

Overall, i think the story was very good & well written.  The Abandoned is a eBook prequel to The Graveyard queen series, which i'm sooo exited for :)

My rating:
