This second book in the series can be read as a stand alone, but to get the full effect and understanding of the story I do recommend reading the books in the correct order.

Having dealt with Vokkel in the last book, our team of ghost killers are confronted by a new and devious enemy in the shape of a seventeenth century muskateer and a teenage boy. As they unravel what they can about this dangerous duo they become aware an old enemy is lurking in the wings for revenge, which he hopes to gain by unleashing a huge amount of evil as per an ancient prophecy.

The narrative in this second volume is crisper and more concise giving this thriller a brisker pace than the first. We learn more about Billy’s mother and the truth about her father too.

The book starts in the midst of a big show down and ends with one. I found the unravelling of clues in this thriller fascinating and could not put this book down. I look forward to reading the next one in this series of supernatural thrillers. This book is available to read for free to Kindle Unlimited subscribers.

Let me start by saying I didn’t read the first book in this series, but the author includes some background information in this novel, so I wasn’t completely lost, and feel it could also be read as a standalone.

The whole concept of an international covert organization of ghost killers intrigued me from the start – then you throw in secret vaults, old diaries, and mysterious prophecies?  Yes, please.  I liked how there are both ‘good’ and ‘bad’ ghosts and the way a person can be haunted for a lifetime – that definitely gives the ghost killers job security.  The way the story develops is also intriguing, as George discovers connections between various hauntings and people.  George is likable, but flat, and I didn’t feel as if I had as good a grasp on his character as Billy or some other supporting characters.  The author did a wonderful job with Calvin’s character – he was equally disturbing and creepy.

The story begins and ends with exciting action sequences, but the middle is predominantly information gathering and sharing, making the pacing a little uneven for my taste.  I was also overwhelmed with the sheer number of characters (there were many mentioned, even though some didn’t appear in the book) and had to backtrack several times to remind myself who they were.  At the beginning of the book, there are some grammar and tense errors, but the last 80% or so seemed better edited.

I’d classify The Edge of the Cemetery as more of a supernatural thriller – and if you’re a fan, this is a book you’d enjoy – but with the mention of ghost killers, ghosts, and demons, I was hoping it would be heavier on the horror.  But I’m probably in the minority on that preference.

I received a copy of this book through Rosie’s Book Review Team in exchange for an honest review.

Title: The Edge of the Cemetery

  • Published: 2016
  • Author: Margaret Millmore
  • Started: Tuesday 16th of June
  • Finished: Monday 27th June
The Edge of the Cemetery is the sequel to the supernatural thriller, What Haunts Me, following George Sinclair and his friends,  all of whom have the remarkable talent of being able to see and vanquish ghosts and demons. In this book, George faces some tough demons, and has to act quickly in order to stop Gilles, one of the most powerful, murderous ghosts of all time from unleashing all kinds of supernatural danger.
I liked that the book starts In medias res, so we are introduced to action sequences much quicker than in the previous book. I thought the action sequences throughout the narrative were very dramatic and I could certainly see the events unfolding clearly in my imagination. I also thought the mystery surrounding Calvin, the human chosen to “converge” with Gilles and magnify his power, (or as I dubbed him: Creepy Calvin) was intriguing, although it took me a while to work out what his significance was. I liked Millmore’s development of the friendship (and potential romance) between George and Billy, but any hints of their relationship were very sparse so it was difficult for me to want them to “get together”.
However, I thought there was excessive recapping of What Haunts Me which was disappointing because I read it so recently, although other readers may benefit from this. There also seemed to be an over-reliance on dialogue for exposition, and I thought there could have been more creative ways to conceal or reveal different pieces of information.
All in all, I thought the narrative structure of The Edge of the Cemetery was clearer than in What Haunts Me, the characters were more well-established and I enjoyed discovering what was going on in the dramatic life of George Sinclair. If you enjoyed What Haunts Me, you will really enjoy The Edge of the Cemetery.
Star Rating: 3.5/5
