When her grandfather and brother die, Mackenzie Bishop becomes the youngest Keeper of the afterlife, known as the Archives. Each body that enters the Archives contains the Histories of the Dead. As some awaken, they have to stop them from getting back to the real world and into the Archives. When bodies start awakening more frequently, MacKenzie realizes that some is tampering with the Archives and try to kill off all of the librarians by releasing the bodies back into the world. Can MacKenzie find whoever is doing it before it’s too late?

The characters are likable, well-developed, and easy to sympathize with. The plot is well-developed, intense, and unique with lots of plot twists. A must-read for mystery, fantasy, and supernatural fiction fans. MS, HS. ESSENTIAL. Reviewer: Jessica Moody, Library Media Specialist, Olympus Jr. High.
