Summary
  After being sent back from the light, Alona Dare - former homecoming queen, current Queen of the Dead - finds herself doing something she never expected: working. Instead of spending days perfecting her tan by the pool (her typical summer routine when she was, you know, alive), Alona must now cater to the needs of other lost spirits. By her side for all of this - ugh - “helping of others” is Will Killian: social outcast, seer of the dead, and someone Alona cares about more than she’d like. 
Before Alona can make a final ruling on Will’s “friend” or “more” status, though, she discovers trouble at home. Her mom is tossing out Alona’s most valuable possessions, and her dad is expecting a new daughter with his wicked wife. Is it possible her family is already moving on? Hello! She’s only been dead for two months! Thankfully, Alona knows just the guy who can put a stop to this mess.

Unfortunately for Alona, Will has other stuff on his mind, and Mina, a young (and beautiful) seer, is at the top of the list. She’s the first ghost-talker Will’s ever met—aside from his father—and she may hold answers to Will’s troubled past. But can she be trusted? Alona immediately puts a check mark in the “clearly not” column. But Will is - ahem - willing to find out, even if it means leaving a hurt and angry Alona to her own devices, which is never a good idea.
Packed with romance, lovable characters, and a killer cliffhanger, Queen of the Dead is the out-of-this-world sequel to The Ghost and the Goth.


What I gave it: 5 outta 5! I loved it!!

Where I got it: My Local Library

My Thoughts:
      I waited for a while to get my hands on this book, and it was TOTALLY WORTH THE WAIT! I loved it! I was already totally in love with Will and Alona's story, and this book just fueled that fire! When Alona learns that not only her mother but also her father is moving on from her death, she kinda loses it! And she has pretty much every right too! After all she IS / WAS their only child! But Will doesn't see it that way, and refuses to help her, so in true Alona fashion she takes matters into her own hands... AND ends up in BIG TROUBLE!  I cant wait till the next book to see where Will and Ally (ALONA) go after all the major changes they have been through,  But sadly the next book Body and Soul does not come out until May 29th 2012! So I guess it's Another LONG wait for me!
