Grave Matter is Book A full review can be found at United by Pop.This begins with a sense of pervading eeriness that haunts every page due to both the nature of the writing and the inky shades of the illustrations within. The opening scene features a drunk Samuel mourning atop the grave of his recently deceased girlfriend, Eliza. Snow carpets the ground and blurs the gravestones around him. His pain is almost total, only pushed aside to make room for the overwhelming anger that consumes him.The strength of emotion in the gloomy opening scene is felt, and not just witnessed, by the reader. Despite having never been prior introduced to the character who now eternally lies in her coffin home, I felt saddened by this loss and mourned with those left alive to grieve for her. Scenes from her short life punctuate their current grief to really drive home their feelings of undoing. We see the now-dead Eliza stand for feminism and we see the night that cut this fight short. We get to witness the love shared by ones so young as well as viewing the destruction of that love severed by death. Scenes from Samuel's own childhood interrupts to hint to the reader at what is about to follow, and provide the hope that all may not be lost.... Since the crash, since Eliza died, Samuel can t find a way to go on His need to see his love again is overwhelming, and so he ventures into the strange, terrifying world of Hoodoo Samuel is about to make a pact with powers he cannot comprehend, let alone control. A viral Kindle Grave Matter I really enjoyed this book! After reading an 11 book series it was nice to read a short yet interesting story! Perfect Halloween/gothic style story line. I will definitely be reading this book again!
