As a grave witch, Alex Craft can speak to the dead-she’s even on good terms with Death himself. As a consultant for the police, she’s seen a lot of dark magic, but nothing has prepared her for her latest case. When she’s raising a “shade” involved in a high profile murder, it attacks her, and then someone makes an attempt on her life. Someone really doesn’t want her to know what the dead have to say, and she’ll have to work with mysterious homicide detective Falin Andrews to figure out why…
I just finished reading Grave Witch and I enjoyed it immensely. Alex Craft is a Grave Witch. She doesn’t raise the dead only their shades. I like the twist the author has given the story so that while it is similar to Hamilton’s work it is also different enough to cover different ground. In this first book of Kayalyna Price’s new series we meet our cast of characters and learn a bit about their pasts while being drawn into a web of mystery, deceit, and Fae interference in our world.
I would recommend this book to anyone that is a fan of Laurell K. Hamilton, Charlain Harris or Kim Harrison.
