Queen of the Dead is book two of Stacey Kade's Ghost and the Goth trilogy. There is a growing storyline through the three books and they should be read in order. This review does contain spoilers from book one The Ghost and the Goth .

Alona Dare may not have planned to become Will Killian's spirit guide, but things were working out well. They had a really good working relationship going, with her being dead and him alive. It was hard to believe how really good he looked at times, although she knew with her help he could do so much better. And surprisingly, he was a really good kisser. Right now though, she needed his help. Her parents were making mistakes, and she needed him. But was he there for her? Oh no. He had discovered another girl. A live girl - one who was a ghost talker like him. Well, she didn't really need his help, she could take matters into her own hands.

Will couldn't believe it when they ran into Mina. There was someone else like him, and he needed answers. The problem was that Mina kept running off. He needed to go after her and find some answers, but Alona didn’t agree. That was the problem with dealing with Alona Dare - dead or alive. She was always the priority, and Will had had enough.

He should have known telling Alona not to do something was a bad idea and the consequences would only add to their nightmare.

Queen of the Dead is a fun, fast paced continuation in Stacey Kade's Ghost and the Goth trilogy. We see Will and Alona in action as they try to help a ghost, and the fallout is never ending. Even more fascinating is the complex relationship growing between Will and Alona. I had no patience once I completed this story, and immediately started the conclusion to the trilogy, Body & Soul.
