The bone houses / Emily Lloyd-Jones.

Lloyd-Jones, Emily, (author.).



"When risen corpses called 'bone houses' threaten Ryn's village because of a decades-old curse, she teams up with a mapmaker named Ellis to solve the mystery of the curse and destroy the bone houses forever"-- Provided by publisher.
Since the death of their parents, Aderyn ("Ryn") and her siblings have been scraping together a meager existence as gravediggers in the remote village of Colbren, near a harsh and deadly mountain range that was once home to the fae. The problem with being a gravedigger in Colbren, though, is that the dead don't always stay dead. Risen corpses are known as "bone houses," and legend says that they're the result of a decades-old curse. When Ellis, an apprentice mapmaker, arrives in town, the bone houses attack with new ferocity. What is it that draws them-- and how can they be stopped for good? -- adapted from jacket
