Book creation ratings:
Overall total -- 23 out of a possible 30
-- Story & characters -- 9
-- Cover & title -- 7
-- Editing -- 7
* based on a 1-10 scale with:  1-4, poor; 5-7, good; 8-10, very good.*

My 5 point review:
-1- The storyline was fabulous especially for those whom love period based fiction.

-2- The characters were well developed and fit the era they were portrayed 

-3- Imagery was well defined but allowed the reader to extrapolate the scene.

-4- The only downside I would have to give the work would be in editing, I noticed a few mistakes, primarily a shift from the first to third person perspective.

-5- Overall, Grave Vengeance is a hauntingly wonderful jaunt into the past!
