    1 thought on “The Restorer”

    1. Like the sultry afternoon, the jasmine gently floating on the breeze, the cool sweat dripping from a glass. Just when sun bids farewell and the moon says hello, between day and night- twilight- a veil is lifted, the unrest sprits rise to roam the land of the living once more… Amanda Stevens writes poetic and downright spooky novel in The Restorer, set in the old south city in Charleston. Amelia Gray is a cemetery restorer, and can see ghosts, but unlike the ghost whisperer, Amelia has been rai [...]

    2. Me encantó. Hace tiempo que no leía una novela que durante toda su lectura me mantuviera con el vello erizado. Y es que además de un ritmo muy ágil y un estilo que traspasa la ansiedad de una seguidilla de acontecimientos que te mantienen pendiente del libro en todo momento, la autora logra una historia muy original, combinando en forma muy equilibrada la condición paranormal de la protagonista con el misterio asociado a una serie de asesinatos.Giros en la trama, más de una sorpresa y unas [...]

    3. So beautiful and chilling. The Restorer was recommended to me by someone I trust implicitly when it comes to books (that someone being my favorite author, Ann Aguirre) so it’s no wonder I didn’t hesitate to pick it up as soon as I found it in my mailbox. My intention was to read a chapter or two to get a feel of the story and then leave it for the night, but I ended up reading it all in one sitting. Let me tell you, reading this book at night, in a dark and silent house wasn’t the smartest [...]

    4. I abandon most paranormal series because they're rather annoying. Most of the ones I've tried to read have contained vampires, werewolves, etc and a variation of otherworldly politics and conspiracies, one would have to use a great deal of suspension of disbelief to really get into those stories. This series is believable, it's not too out there as far as paranormal activities go. One can be induced to believe that ghosts do exist, and aren't visible to everyone. This book sticks to ghosts, the [...]

    5. 2.5 StarsThe Restorer was a mixed bag for me. Let’s start with what I enjoyed:The creepy vibe. I do love the thrill of wondering what darkness lurks in the shadows. I can’t think of a place I’d feel more tension and an undercurrent of fear than an old cemetery in the South. Ms. Stevens made the setting sound beautiful, but haunting, just the way I love a spooky story! The ghosts were a believable presence upping the scare factor big time. The mystery unfolding, although it’s one of my co [...]

    6. Repeat to myself - I do not need another series, I do not need another series.oh well, I guess I have found another series. I read The Restorer for a challenge (read a book with a grave on the cover - for Hallowe'en). Damn these challenges:)Anyhow it was a great book. Nice and creepy without being too scary, lovely Southern atmosphere and two very attractive main characters. Amelia can see dead people, which is always good for a start, and Devlin is like a sexy vampire without actually being a v [...]

    7. Amelia Gray restores graveyards, having spent her whole life in cemeteries as her father is a caretaker of them. And, she sees ghosts and has since she was nine-years old. Her father sees them, too, and he's taught her the rules to follow to protect herself, one of them being to never let ghosts know she can see them. Amelia has also never told anyone else about her gift. Amelia is on an assignment in Charleston, restoring an old cemetery associated with a university and gets embroiled in a murd [...]

    8. Can you say creepy?Can you say wonderful?If you love spooky, creepy, darn right oh-my-god-I-just-saw-something-in-the-corner-of-my-room scary type books, this is your book. If you want to be frustrated by a blossoming relationship between two main characters, this is also your book. Let me explain.I love to be scared. While this book IS scary, it is not the blatant in your face, gory, axe murdering serial killer type of scary. Instead, it is the hair rising, I cannot see him, but I knew he is be [...]

    9. I gave this book 5 stars because some day I would love to reread it.Amelia saw ghosts from the age of Nine. Her father have her rules to follow and she was never to acknowledge a haunted man and to stay far away from one. There were Three rules that she needed to live by and she had broken every rule!This is a great spooky Gothic mystery. There are several Murders, where keeps you guessing till the end on who was doing it. I love this Game. Ghosts were everywhere. If you love to read paranormal [...]

    10. Uf! No me lo esperaba, de verdad. En ningún sentido me lo esperaba. La historia es fascinante, única, original. Y sus personajes ¿qué se puede decir de ellos: de Amelia y Delvin? Solo que muy pocas veces uno tiene el placer de leer una historia de amor tan intensa y prohibida. Desde luego, un estupendo libro con que empezar el año.

    11. 6 starsWell, I'm dazzled, stunned, shocked and yes haunted. This is an amazing book, the best I've read so far in 2011. I don't feel like picking another book right now, my mind's stuck there with Amelia, Devlin and their ghosts. And for a book that does not belong in the romance genre, the attraction between them was a very powerful and vivid thing.Many people have described the plot, but I find it difficult to explain to someone who hasn't read the book. In short, there are some gruesome murde [...]

    12. Sencillamente brillante.La Restauradora es la primera parte de una serie que realmente deja el listón muy alto para sus siguientes continuaciones.Me ha encantado la trama, el ritmo y sus personajes.Amelia es una mujer solitaria que dan ganas de achucharla. Y Devlin tiene tanto misterio a su alrededor, que no puedo evitar desconfiar de él.Amanda Stevens crea una atmósfera espeluznante con la que consigue ponerte los pelos de punta a lo largo de todo el libro.La parte del misterio junto con los [...]

    13. Pictures of Oak Grove Cemetary, from Amanda Stevens’s website: thegraveyardqueen Book Quote:An old live oak guarded the darkest corner of the garden, and a swing hung like a childhood memory from one of the gnarled branches.★★★★½ (This is a review of the audiobook.) Oh, this one is excellent! The first thrilling mystery in the Graveyard Queen series is narrated by the wonderful Khristine Hvam, who is perfect for this first person POV telling of a Southern gothic. She doesn’t miss a [...]

    14. Feb 2017 monthly deal on amazon for $0.99 Here3.5 StarsForbidden love stories always hook me hard. Add ghosts, murder and a creepy cemetery into the mix and you have my attention. Amelie sees dead people, she always has as long as she can remember. Rule #1 don’t let them know you see them, Rule #2 never stray to far from hallowed ground and Rule #3 avoid people who have ghosts attached to them never invite them into your life.

    15. Reseña completa: masromance/20Le daría 3.75Enganchar engancha y está bien escrita. No creo que se trate de una novela romántica, sino (dado que esa parte no me ha gustado) bajaría de puntuación. En mi opinión, es un thriller o suspense, o como se llame, pero no romántico y solo por el hecho de no haber averiguado al culpable ya se ha ganado otra estrella.Por lo demás, muy entretenida y muy visual. Aunque hay muchos momentos repetitivos. Resulta algo cansina cada vez que ella lo mira. La [...]

    16. Rating: 4.5 (After some more thought: A five, really.)Quick Take: Loved it. Loved. It. Steven's writing style is so easy to get into. To say that I look forward to more of this series is a serious understatement. Highly recommended to all of my ghost-story-friendly urban fantasy peeps. It might give you a fright, but it's well worth the thrill.Review:Freaking A, man. What an awesome book this is!I must confess that, as a scaredy cat and ghost-story wimp, I was hesitant at first to read Amanda St [...]

    17. There was no mistaking her intent.She knew I was there.She knew I could see her.And she was letting me know that she knew. Lock your doors, check your windows, plug in your night lights, and prepare to be frightened! This book chilled me to the bone, and I adored every minute of it. I stayed up all night to finish this not just because it was sooooo good (it was) but I was too much of a scardy cat to sleep. Amanda Stevens has made spooky graveyard stories my newest obsession. A woman's body has [...]

    18. 2,5 starsTHIS REVIEW HAS BEEN EDITED:(30/04/13)Having already read the second one, I can definitely say that I won't be reading any other books of this series.I've also removed a star, since on further consideration I've decided that this was just an okay reading. Yes, there were some aspects that I liked, but in the end, the negative parts surpassed the positives.Former Review:It's impossible for me to say that I didn't "like" the book. I did, it was completely different from what I've been rea [...]

    19. 4.5 starsEerie, haunting, and definitely spooky, The Restorer is unlike any ghost story I’ve read before. The Restorer is part ghost story, part murder mystery. There’s a touch of voodoo and witchcraft in it along with a mysterious secret order. Add in a pretty eccentric cast of characters and there you have it – a compelling read.Amelia Gray sees dead people. She’s seen them for most of her life. Amelia follows a strict set of rules to help her cope with her ability so that no ghost wil [...]

    20. 4.5 Finally, a great ghost story ! I had good old fashioned goose bumps while reading this wonderful tale. It was scary with a subtle touch, slowly unraveling. I was enchanted, by the characters, the mystery, and the hint of a romance. The Amelia Grey, a cemetery restorer, loves her job, repairing the forgotten treasures of our ancestors. She is a southern girl, her father a cemetery grounds keeper. She see’s her first ghost at nine years old. Her father warns her and gives her a set or rules [...]

    21. Me ha gustado, pero quizá esperaba más debido a todas las buenas opiniones o puede que no fuera el momento de leerlo. Le tenía ganas a esta serie desde hace tiempo, quería leer algo distinto pero a lo mejor no es para mí, así que de momento no voy a seguir con La reina del cementerio (aunque puede ser que un día me pique la curiosidad por saber como sigue).

    22. Amelia GrayJohn DevlinSeveral years ago I visited Charleston, South Carolina in the middle of summer. The weather was hot, the humidity was oppressive and the pace, well, people took their time. I signed up for a graveyard ghost tour, not my normal vacation time activity. But it was Charleston, and being a Southern history fan, I couldn’t resist. This was the center of antebellum South, where the cruelty of slavery and the genteel manners of Southern folks co-existed. I loved my tour and I lov [...]

    23. 5 Superbly Creepy Stars Fantastic writing, unique premise, strong historical context, captivating characters, and a terrifying but fascinating supernatural element all dominate this phenomenal read I was enthralled from the very first page and could not be pulled away until the final page turned; if you love a psychological thriller wrapped in a supernatural blanket that keeps you guessing and your heart racing until the end then you need to pick up this book up, take a deep breath, and hold on [...]

    24. Keep your distance from those who are haunted.Long story shortAmelia Gray, a cemetery restorer who can see ghosts, is forced into a police investigation when a body is found in the cemetery she is restoring.My thoughtsThe first thing that made me check out The Restorer was the cover. I absolutely love that sad angel statue. It makes me think of an extremely gloomy story. Which is exactly what The Restorer is. Amanda Stevens nailed the cover, it's perfect for the story. The second thing that made [...]

    25. Umm yeah Did not expect to get the chills at least twice while reading this book. I innocently picked it up for a Saturday afternoon peruse I'm sure the chills also came about because we had a brief dark, stormy rain (seriously, could the mood have gotten anymore perfect?). My afternoon peruse turned into a full day reading session with a few "Leave me alone, I'm reading" retorts to my kind husband who only wanted to know did I want dinner, what would I like for dinner, and it's time to eat. Cou [...]

    26. The Restorer has the worst interrupted love scene I've ever seen in a book. YIKES! But I'm getting ahead of myself. This book was simply marvelous, specially if you are more into Gothic books than Horror (as I am.) The atmosphere was magnificent - I simply love Charleston - the language was luscious and very Southern, the love interest and sexual tension were hot as hell, the narration was perfect, and the plot/pacing were extremely well done. If it weren't for Amelia's tendency to shiver every [...]

    27. This is absolutely amazing. The writing is evocative, lyrical, the epitome of elegant restraint. Ms. Stevens' grasp of setting as character is nothing short of sublime. Her Charleston is a fascinating place, every bit as vivid and enthralling as her lead characters, Amelia Grey and John Devlin. This book is a must-read for those who enjoy Gothic-touched mystery threaded through diamond-bright with sexual tension and forbidden longing. Why are you still here? Go get this book, and then read it im [...]

    28. Buddy Read with JaHy and Jenna!!I think JaHy and I kept confusing each other with our guesses and how deep we would go with our theories!! Confusing as shit.Ready to pull my hair out with all the names I had to keep track of.but HOLY SHIT!!What an ending and I was WRONGl my guess were dead WRONG!!Worth the confusion in the long run and can't wait to start #2

    29. Touted as a fresh new entry into the paranormal romance, The Restorer is am ambitious work at trying to break stereotypes within the genre. However despite it's awesome paranormal component, interesting back stories for it's characters; the restorer really fell flat in the character department and the almost unrealistic romantic portion which kind of ruined the reading experience for me. Fans of paranormal will enjoy this if you can get through the cringe worth romantic parts.The romance portion [...]

    30. Amelia Gray sees dead people, which is all well and good since she makes her living restoring old and neglected cemetaries. Seeing the dearly departed however comes with a cost, one that was imparted to her at the tender age of nine by her father, who also shares her odd ability. It seems there are certain hard and fast rules about the dead but it mainly boils down to pretending they're not there. Abiding by the rules makes for a somewhat lonely and isolated life but, like any true southern bell [...]
