Book Review: The Grave Winner by Lindsey R. Loucks

The Grave Winner (The Grave Winner #1) by Lindsey R. Loucks
Genre: Young Adult (Paranormal Romance)
Date Published: May 15, 2013
Publisher: Crescent Moon Press

The Blurb:
Leigh Baxton is terrified her mom will come back from the dead -- just like the prom queen did.

While the town goes beehive over the news, Leigh bikes to the local cemetery and buries some of her mom’s things in her grave to keep her there. When the hot and mysterious caretaker warns her not to give gifts to the dead, Leigh cranks up her punk music and keeps digging.

She should have listened.

Two dead sorceresses evicted the prom queen from her grave to bury someone who offered certain gifts. Bury them alive, that is, then resurrect them to create a trio of undead powerful enough to free the darkest sorceress ever from her prison inside the earth.

With help from the caretaker and the dead prom queen, Leigh must find out what’s so special about the gifts she gave, and why the sorceresses are stalking her and her little sister. If she doesn’t, she’ll either lose another loved one or have to give the ultimate gift to the dead – herself.

My Review:
The Grave Winner is the first book in The Grave Winner Series and the enjoyable debut novel by Lindsey R. Loucks. This book took zombies mixed with magic and spun them around into a highly unique and entertaining story.  Leigh was a great main character. She was strong, and witty, and an all around fun person. There is a love triangle that develops. I'm not to keen on either of the love interests just yet. I need to know more about them. Tram is slightly in the lead, but I want to know why Callum acts like a complete jerk sometimes. Is he not who he seems? And who/what is the Counselor? We never got to meet him. Or did we? Maybe I'm over thinking it. I don't want to say too much, but there was a single statement that stuck in my head and really makes me wonder about the counselor though. Hmm! I want to know! Needless to say, I'm excited to find out more in the next book!

About the Author:
Lindsey R. Loucks works as a school librarian in rural Kansas. When she's not discussing books with anyone who will listen, she's dreaming up her own stories. Eventually her brain gives out, and she'll play hide and seek with her cat, put herself in a chocolate induced coma, or watch scary movies alone in the dark to reenergize.

She's been with her significant other for almost two decades.
