The final half started it’s redemption, earning another star for its rating. I didn’t like it, even as a light read. Rebekkah acted like one of Ms.
Byron as the male main is much more likeable and easy to sympathize with. The romance was about average.
But in this case, my reasoning is clear. There was so much world building an I can see why some people would gobble this up and fall into this world.
Then I’ll tell you everything, anything, nothing. While mwrr partner the Undertaker, is supposed to protect her from harm and be with her for her lifetime.
I’m afraid you won’t love me anymore if I tell you. Marr’s first venture into adult fiction. This review refers to an advance reader’s copy. This book is not blatantly anti-feminist like the Twilight series and features female characters that are not hampered by their “femaleness.
There were quite a few chapters that I sat there trying to figure out what in the wholly grave was going on.
She remembers that Maylene always attended the funerals of each townsperson, always taking three sips from a flask and telling the dead to “sleep well and stay where I put you”. I felt I couldn’t leave without sharing my opinion.
Byron is determined to be a part of Beka’s life, no matter how small that part may be. Debatable at this time.
Hence the reason why I picked up Grave Minder in the first place! When an unexpected evil is let loose and Maylene is killed, Rebekkah returns to Claysville only to learn she has been designated the new Graveminder. I felt like I wasn’t learning anything new and just being told the same thing eight different ways every time they interacted.

With this strong opening and unique mythos, I was hoping for a great read.
The next thing you know, the woman is dead, savagely murdered, and her granddaughter must return to the town. Either way, you’ll probably love Graveminder.
I get why people don’t like the heroine. It seems like the great majority, if not all, of the confusion and conflict in the book was a result of the characters just not bothering to ever tell anyone anything, and never for any reason beyond “Oh, I just couldn’t! All the elements are there; paranormal phenomenon, secrets, alternate realities, romance The dead EAT the living. After 1 month of reading this book, I finally finished it. I really don’t want to get into it because it isn’t fully explained until later on.
Why does nobody tell them anything? Did I set my expectations too high?
The prologue drew me in with the palpable sense of dread and mystery grveminder created. Yes, I think Melissa Marr had a lot of great ideas in this book. It’s more of a quite tedious setup for the inevitable, for the main event. Guess that means I’m gonna have to re-read it.
Claysville has a lot of weird traditions and superstitions, including a mysterious connection between the Barrow women and the local undertakers, including Ella and Rebekkah’s onetime boyfriend Byron.
Or ghosts that can nom on people which is nearly as good. I won’t jarr them, and I would hope that I, and those like me, aren’t criticized. Apr 26, Angela rated it liked it Shelves:
