Graveminder by Melissa Marr
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.
I found Graveminder to be very good. At first it was a bit slow and I had put the book down for a while. But with some persuasion from Sandy; I picked it back up, and couldn't put it back down. The story was very original and exciting, I have never read a story like before, I feel like the story was kind of left unfinished but at the same time I am very happy with the ending.
I have to say they were a few parts that I find kind of scary and annoying, but they were very few and it helps you see the big picture on things! I'm actually hoping there is a second part to this.
