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 Decent ghost story July 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
The Graveyard Speaks is a short novella about a young woman who hunts ghosts. She learns of a ghost that is appearing by a specific grave every night and investigates it. It's well written, but has a few issues.

The first is that it feels a bit rushed. There's lots of interesting backstory that is only mentioned in passing. Now I'm sure that more is reavealed as more stories are released, but it felt like a lot of what made the character interesting is glossed over.

It also felt too easy. There was no real peril (except for one excellent moment) where you felt that maybe she was in any real danger. She never really had to struggle in any way, everything she needed was conveniently provided for her. I felt that she needed to work at the situation more to be satisfying.

My other issue was that the book ended abruptly. It finishes then hints at the next case and thewn ends. At 75% of the book. A quarter of the book was devoted to advertising other stories and the author. Now don't get me wrong authors have to make a living so some advertisement at the end of the book is expected, but not to the extent that it occupies a quarter of the book. Anyway, it's a pet peeve of mine, but I haven't factored it in to the score.

Overall it's a fun read read, the ghost is well done and I enjoyed the interactions between it and the main character, but it's also a bit of a disappointment, it could have been so much more.

Nineteen year old girl gets rid of ghosts after school. The short story is just a tease to purchase the next book - which you won't care to.

Fun short story. Makes me interested in seeing what happens next. I didn't know it was a short story though, which was a bit frustrating.

This book or rather short story had great potential to be a book. The story line was great but it just hurried through straight to the end. Read more
