    Description

    Three sips to mind the dead....

    Rebekkah Barrow never forgot the attention her grandmother Maylene bestowed upon the dead of Claysville, the small town where Bek spent her adolescence. There wasn't a funeral that Maylene didn't attend, and at each one Rebekkah watched as Maylene performed the same unusual ritual: She took three sips from a silver flask and spoke the words "Sleep well, and stay where I put you."

    Now Maylene is dead, and Bek must go back to the place she left a decade earlier. She soon discovers that Claysville is not just the sleepy town she remembers, and that Maylene had good reason for her odd traditions. It turns out that in Claysville the worlds of the living and the dead are dangerously connected; beneath the town lies a shadowy, lawless land ruled by the enigmatic Charles, aka Mr. D. If the dead are not properly cared for, they will come back to satiate themselves with food, drink, and stories from the land of the living. Only the Graveminder, by tradition a Barrow woman, and her Undertaker - in this case Byron Montgomery, with whom Bek shares a complicated past - can set things right once the dead begin to walk.

    Although she is still grieving for Maylene, Rebekkah will soon find that she has more than a funeral to attend to in Claysville, and that what awaits her may be far worse: dark secrets, a centuries-old bargain, a romance that still haunts her, and a frightening new responsibility - to stop a monster and put the dead to rest where they belong.

    Give it a listen...you will be rewarded!

    I found this book when I was aimlessly perusing Amazon.com the other day for a new read. I recently listened to The Host by Stephenie Meyer again and Melissa Marr's Graveminder was likened to it: a wonderful adult work written by a successful YA author. Once I started listening I couldn't stop. I finished it in less than a day. This author seamlessly introduced a fantasy world without bogging the book down with boring details. Give it a try, you will be rewarded!

    Meh

    Although it has an interesting premise and good narration, this book just missed the mark. There are plot points that lead nowhere, obvious villains and characters that lack complexity. Also, there are points where there is so little description it's easy to be confused as to where the characters actually are and what is going on. I think the author was trying to set this book up as the first in a series, but there's not enough here for me to want to read more.

    Haunting and Strange

    I loved this book with all it's differences. It's backwoods Appalachia, mystified with guardians of life and death. It's a mythology I've never run into from Appalachia but it fits much of what is there. It's also very small town. And a lovely read.

    Gothic Southern Romance meets zombies

    Emma Galvin does a fine job in narrating the story, which boasts a pretty interesting beginning and a solid ending. All the self-imposed love-denial stuff in the middle, however, got to me. This read a lot like juvenile lit, so if you are looking for a fun light zombie-read for chicks, go ahead and jump into this one.

    Couldn't decide what it was

    Like some of the other reviewers I found this one by accident. Though It was not terrible overall and I did enjoy the narrator, to me there was no one real point of the story. Was this a scary zombie-ish book? One about relationships? Dealing with death? I couldn't figure it out. It went off in so many different directions that the main plot line was often lost. If the author had stuck with the main idea, that the dead must be tended and keeping them in their place, and had not gone off into the whole stupid Mr. Charles and the world of the dead section, it would have been a really good book.

    A must read!

    I read that Jeaniene Frost recommended this book & being that she's one of my favorite authors I got the audiobook. It didn't disappoint. It has intrigue, without continuous twists and turn some stories have that just drag out the plots only to end as one would guess away. It's a great book with a great storyline and characters. For anyone who loves a mystery or just loves a good book.

    Skip this book

    Would you try another book from Melissa Marr and/or Emma Galvin?

    No

    Would you ever listen to anything by Melissa Marr again?

    No

    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I would have liked greater differentiation between characters

    Any additional comments?

    Gave up on this book at about Chapter 18. Main characters that I never really cared about. Emo Bek whining and moaning about missing her dead grandmother. By Chapter 18, I was rooting for the dead girl to eat more people because I was just so tired of reading about them. I was tired of shouting (in my head) at the characters to STFU and get on with the story. That's when I knew I should walk away from this book. The premise was interesting, but the execution was definitely less than compelling.

    Horrible narration

    Can't finish. Flat tone. No voice differences between characters. Get James Marsters to re-record please.
