This was not the cover of the book I read, but its so far superior that I'm using it instead. Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book was delightful. It was fun and not predictable and had wonderful characters throughout. The villain was perfect. I learned oh-so-much about things like ghoul gates. Everything was to the point and not overly explained or told (so maybe I'm still smarting from the previously reviewed Heyer novel).
Anyway, I'm giving this one an 8.
