Book Description

Some secrets can’t stay buried.

Deep in a dark, snow-covered cemetery, a terrifying, moaning apparition rises from the same grave night after night. Even the most hardened caretakers won’t go near the Spooner gravestone on their midnight rounds. Only one ghost hunter has the will to face the unknown, but at what price? In the chilling blackness, only Jessica Backman is prepared to answer the spectral cry from beyond when the graveyard speaks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Be Warned About This Graveyard April 3, 2013
By RRJames
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another winner from Hunter Shea. This terrifying little short will keep you turning pages as the young heroine struggles to save a spirit in distress. Be warned that this tale is just the gateway drug to his new novel Sinister Entity, and it will also force you to buy his earlier Forest of Shadows.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! April 3, 2013

This was my first time reading a book from Hunter Shea and it was well worth reading. The only complaint I have is wanting the book to be longer as I enjoyed it so much.

4.0 out of 5 stars pleasently surprised May 9, 2013
By Gypsy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
it is true I started this book expecting another bad ghost hunting story. What happened is I fell in love with the 19 year old ghost hunter, Jessica. She is wonderfully brave and persistent. Her loyal but scardie pants friend Angela provides a a perfect balance to the hunters. They, with a little help from overseas, have to get a ghost to stop haunting their own grave.


I have to say that how Jessica saves the ghost of a young wife from being further tortured by her recently deceased abusive husband is absolutely awesome.

nice job Hunter Shea! ~Gypsy Patti~

3.0 out of 5 stars Short and sweet. April 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love to read suspeence and horror stories. And since I got a kindle fire I seem to be reading all the time. I think that the story was predictable. I do however like the main character. And the story line. The story was good enough to make me want to see what other adventures she would have next. And in all fairness, the teaser for the next book st the end seemed to be better. I would suggest that you give this author a try.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not my style of story, but well written. June 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
3 1/2 stars.

This is my second book by Hunter Shea---the other being Swamp Monster Massacre, and they could not have been more different books. That isn't a bad thing, really. He is part of the new trend of talented authors writing both in YA and for more mature audiences (like Jonathan Maberry and Jeff Strand).

Swamp Monster Massacre is a gory, violent, over the top monster romp that would send my daughter screaming out of the room. The Graveyard Speaks is clearly a YA supernatural novel with more of a focus on the characters and the mystery of what is going on at this graveyard. She will enjoy this one very much. The main characters are paranormal investigators, which is another plot that will appeal to a young audience. Thank God was are spared the sparkly vampires and angst-ridden werewolves.

As I commented in my review of SMM, Shea knows his audience and has the skill level to pull off enjoyable fare in several genres. I gave it 3 stars because this type of novel is not to MY personal taste, and this is MY rating, but I am sure that fans of YA paranormal thrillers would like it and rate it much higher. I even confess to being curious to read the next novel in the series just to see what happens with these characters.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time! June 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I am actually really surprised that this book received so many positive reviews. This was the most idiotic book that I have ever read...I had to look up the author Hunter Shea to make sure that he wasn't a 12 year old kid. Amateur writing, zero character development, and no build up to the plot. Not that I thought that the plot was that great to begin with. You will be finished reading the book almost as soon as you pick it up, it is that short. However, I found that to be a positive as all I wanted to do was be done with this horrible book. I will not be reading anything else by Hunter Shea.

3.0 out of 5 stars GUESS IT'S JUST ME June 30, 2013
By Juker
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's well written, has a nice plot. It's just me--I'm afraid I've outgrown loving to be scared to death. I can see this being a favorite for some people and at one time it would have been for me. I have lived in a house with a ghost--he wasn't Caspar, but he wasn't a threat either. Had to ask him to leave when my grandson noticed his pranks and he left nicely never to return. Of course they aren't all as cordial as mine. Hope yours aren't like the one in the book!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good short story June 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In general I liked this story. It makes more sense when you read the books that are related to it. Forest of Shadows and Sinister Entity give the background info for why Jessica can do these things. This story was a quick read. I felt like the ending was a little abrupt, but again, the two books that related to this story give an idea of why that might be. I read this as a free kindle download before I purchased and read the books.

More About the Author

Hunter Shea is the product of a childhood weened on The Night Stalker, The Twilight Zone and In Search Of. He doesn't just write about the paranormal - he actively seeks out the things that scare the hell out of people and experiences them for himself.

His novels, Forest of Shadows, Evil Eternal , Swamp Monster Massacre , Sinister Entity, Hell Hole, The Waiting and Island of the Forbidden are published through Samhain Publishing's horror line. Hell Hole was named Horror Novel Reviews #1 horror novel of 2014. His first thriller novel, The Montauk Monster, was released June, 2014 as a Pinnacle paperback, and was named by Publishers Weekly as one of the best reads of the summer. His follow up Pinnacle novel, Tortures of the Damned, a post apocalyptic thriller, will be out July, 2015. That will be followed up by his latest cryptid tale, The Dover Demon in the fall through Samhain. His horror short story collection, Asylum Scrawls, is available as an e-book, straightjacket not included.

Hunter is an amateur cryptozoologist, having written wild, fictional tales about Bigfoot, The Montauk Monster, The Dover Demon and many new creatures to come. A copy of his book, The Montauk Monster, is currently on display in the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, ME.

He wrote his first novel with the express desire to work only with editor Don D'Auria at Dorchester (Leisure Horror). He submitted his novel to Don and only Don, unagented, placed on the slush pile. He is proof that dedicated writers can be rescued from no man's land. He now works with Don, along with several other agents and publishers, having published over ten books in just four years.

Hunter is proud to be be one half of the Monster Men video podcast, along with his partner in crime, Jack Campisi. It is one of the most watched horror video podcasts in the world. Monster Men is a light hearted approach to dark subjects. Hunter and Jack explore real life hauntings, monsters, movies, books and everything under the horror sun. They often interview authors, crytid and ghost hunters, directors and anyone else living in the horror lane.

Living with his wonderful family and two cats, he's happy to be close enough to New York City to get Gray's Papaya hotdogs when the craving hits. His daughters have also gotten the horror bug, assisting him with research, story ideas and illustrations that can be seen in magazines such as Dark Dossier.
