The author of Wish Bound and the Grimm Agency novels returns with an all-new urban fantasy novel!

Burying the dead is easy.  Keeping them down is difficult.

At the Bureau of Special Investigations, agents encounter all sorts of paranormal evils. So for Agent Brynner Carson, driving a stake through a rampaging three-week-old corpse is par for the course. Except this cadaver is different. It’s talking—and it has a message about his father, Heinrich.

The reanimated stiff delivers an ultimatum written in bloody hieroglyphics, and BSI Senior Analyst Grace Roberts is called in to translate. It seems that Heinrich Carson stole the heart of Ra-Ame, the long-dead god of the Re-Animus. She wants it back. The only problem is Heinrich took the secret of its location to his grave.

With the arrival of Ra-Ame looming and her undead army wreaking havoc, Brynner and Grace must race to find the key to stopping her. It’s a race they can’t afford to lose, but then again, it’s just another day on the job . . .

The Reburialists was like mother-fucking Indian Jones meets Caitlin Snow. With the bonus of Egyptian mythology added in. The Reburialists is a trifecta of awesome that made my geeky heart pitter patter and sing joyous songs. I might have broke out into song or dance, ok that it’s a lie..or is it? If your blinking in confusion so far, this might not be the book for you. I think the cover is a bit serious for the overall tone of this book, which even with all of the reanimated bodies and death, it still held a pretty light tone. Or maybe I just lost the rest of you thinking I am one warped individual. I won’t deny it. It is true. But enough about me, the Reburialists was a joy to read. I was entertained and laughed out loud many times and then held my breath during the action. All in all, it was a win-win for me.

In the beginning I had small little pangs of doubt and worry about Brynner and his man-whoring stereotypical ways. I feared the author was walking a bit of a tight rope with stereotypes, but then I realized these went both ways. He really poked a lot of fun at his character and all in all, his lady character were bad asses, so clearly some of the nuances of this could be missed if you got too stuck on things that clearly were meant to poke fun. OF MEN. Shrugs. Some of us get a little sensitive about it, it is true. And in all of our defense..there is a metric ton of literature out there that is just downright offensive to women. This was not one of the books.

The Reburialists was an adventurous ride in a new world that I hope you will find equally as entertaining!

I rate The Reburialists 4.5 out of 5 Bullets!
