Publisher's Summary

It’s a homecoming, of sorts, for Jayné Heller - and she wants some long-awaited answers to her past, in this fifth book in the acclaimed Black Sun’s Daughter urban fantasy series.

After years on her own, Jayné Heller is going home to find some answers. How did the powerful spirit calling itself the Black Sun get into her body? Who was her uncle Eric, and what was the grand plan to which he devoted his life? Who did her mother have an affair with, and why? And the tattoo - seriously - what was that about?

Jayné arrives during the preparations for her older brother’s shotgun wedding, but she’s not the only unexpected guest. The Invisible College has also come to town, intent on stopping the ceremony. They claim an ancient evil is threatening the child that would be Jayné’s niece, and that the Heller family has been rotten at the core for generations. The deeper Jayné looks, the more she thinks they might not be wrong. And behind them all, in the shadows of Jayné’s childhood home, a greater threat waits that calls itself the Graveyard Child....

It just got considerably more interesting

Would you listen to Graveyard Child again? Why?

This is probably the best book of the series yet when Hanover shows that the story is considerably more complex than you may have thought.

What did you like best about this story?

There's more to the story than just demons and vampires: Great timing as just when all the fantasy/occult bits are getting a bit played out and you're wondering how your interest can be held through another book, the deeper storyline emerges.

Wonderful Series!

Where does Graveyard Child rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is a wonderful series that I enjoyed and this book was the best book in the series. I liked that it answered all my questions and still managed to entertain.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved how unpredictable this entire series was. Every time I thought I knew what was happening, I was thrown a new curve. It was wonderful.<br/>And I liked that all of the answers were given by the end of the book. It managed to answer all the questions that the other 4 books had made me ask, and yet the story was still very wonderful and fun to listen to.

What about Suzy Jackson’s performance did you like?

She does a wonderful job with voices and listening to her was something I did not tire of even after 5 books. She did an amazing job! Her differing voices made it really easy to tell who was talking. That is very important in an audiobook.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed quite a bit, but it wasn't really a series like that. It is a very good story, but it is not really emotional.

Any additional comments?

I don't usually do sci-fi, but I really enjoyed this series. Totally worth the time!
