Just Bought These Books #3

Who am I, a book reader and reviewer or only a book shopper? Oh, yes, I read books which I bought but I just too lazy to write my thought about them. Hufff! And, again, today I bought another books to be piled on my shelves. I don't know where will I read them, hahaha...

Rebekkah Barrow never forgot the tender attention her grandmother, Maylene, bestowed upon the dead of Claysville. While growing up, Rebekkah watched as Maylene performed the same unusual ritual at every funeral: three sips from a small silver flask followed by the words, "Sleep well, and stay where I put you."

Now Maylene is gone and Bek must return to the hometown—and the man—she abandoned a decade ago, only to discover that Maylene's death was not natural . . . and there was good reason for her odd traditions. In Claysville, the worlds of the living and the dead are dangerously connected—and beneath the town lies a shadowy, lawless land ruled by the enigmatic Charles, aka Mr. D. From this dark place the deceased will return if their graves are not properly minded. And only the Graveminder, a Barrow woman, and the current Undertaker, Byron, can set things to right once the dead begin to walk.

Melissa Marr is known to young adult readers as the author of the popular faery series, Wicked Lovely. This is her debut leap into adult fiction.

"A deliciously creepy tale that is as skillfully wrought as it is spellbindingly imagined."
—Kelley Armstrong, author of The Gathering
