GRAVE KEEPER: DARK
OF THE MOON
A must read for those who enjoy short thrillers:
Bethany is a young girl trapped and injured in the woods, trying to
escape her crazed boyfriend, on the brink of death from her injuries.
Only one man can save her – Rush, a retired veteran from Iraq. He
senses her pain and seeks help from Brody and Helena, the only two
people in his home town he can trust… though time is not on their side.
From the first chapter, Grave Keeper: Dark of the Moon
captures you, feeling the urgency in Rush to find Bethany. Absolutely
enjoyed this short story and can’t wait for the next from Margaret Marr.

have to trust me that I do like this book. Really, I do. It’s
different, almost a little awkward because it surrounds a couple of
average people going about their plain day-to-day lives. Think of those
you see when you walk into your local coffee shop. Everyone is there
semi-locked in their thoughts, some interact with small talk, and some
sit and mind their own business. You’d never know who’s bored and who’s
writing you into their next novel.
we have Brody and Helena…each knowing the other and passing time
without much more pushing them together. Bring in Rush and life turns
on its head and everyone’s in a race against time and death. Who knew
the local grave keeper was a psychic. Since coming home from Iraq he’s
felt others’ pain. Will his connection to a young woman save her or
just find her?
this within roughly fifty-three electronic pages. A simple
straightforward quick read and yet writing this review has haunted me.
Marr has started a series with an unlikely character…a grave keeper.
She’s thrown me into upfront action and I found myself racing to catch
up. And like Brody and Helena, I’m trying to figure out Rush and
everything as if I’m the one hurrying to save the girl. There’s little
time to know if I believe Rush or if I even like the characters, I’m
learning about them purely through their story actions and nothing
works for me. Every time I think of Grave Keeper: Dark of the
Moon, my head spins and I wonder what’s happening with Rush.
this most certainly works for me.
