The supposed prequel of the Graveyard Queen…..

The Abandoned (Graveyard Queen #0.5)The Abandoned by Amanda Stevens
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Novella length story, which is supposed to be a sort of prequel to The Restorer.
I have to admit to being disappointed in this after reading books 1 to 3.
The author chose two new characters and then connected them on the periphery with the old ones. It was rushed, lack the lustre and finesse of the other books and also seem inconsistent in parts.

Where did Ree read about what had been done to Ilsa and who was involved? The answer is she didn’t. One minute we are reading records that contain hardly any info at all and the next Ree is giving a detailed account of what happened.
This has the general feel of ‘needed to get something out quickly’ and it doesn’t matter what.
It doesn’t do the series any justice at all.
It is suitable for a fun quick read and a bit of info on the Graveyard Queen.
