Shallow Graves; Kali Wallace

Shallow GravesShallow Graves by Kali Wallace
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

At first I thought this was a Lovely Bones-type novel, but then it became more paranormal than LB was. The world it's set in, ours but with "monsters" out there (monsters being harpies, nightmares, ghouls, ghosts and other things), is very well drawn even if the characters and the monster-types aren't. At times I wondered what Breezy's motivation was (she seems unfocused, but that might be because she's dead) and the ending felt a little tentative. Still, despite the paranormal genre fading from my students' interests, this might just get them back into it. Bonus: no real romance but a nice boy-girl friendship.
