Grave Witch (Alex Craft, Book 1) by Kalayna Price
Grave Witch is an enthralling paranormal murder mystery. Set in a world where the imaginary have come out to play, Fey are members of government and magic is as common as kleenex. Our heroine Alex Craft is a rare Grave Witch able to raise shades, give them enough energy to be visible, and use “grave sight” to see into alternate planes of reality. But even to other grave witches she different, with the ability to see and speak with death himself.
The story begins with Alex just trying to make ends meat, and while helping out her sister, stumbles onto a ritualistic serial murder. Before she even knows it someone’s trying to kill her, while death, ironically is trying to save her life. In a world where disapperances are all too common, the Fey are doing there best to kidnap her. And sexy new Detective Andrews seems to be everywhere she is, becoming just as bad as her new ghost stalker. But Alex has to find the murderer, and soon, her own life depends on it.
Grave Witch is fast paced, and complexed. There was a lot going on in this book. All the different threads could have become a jumbled mess, but were well handled, and came together nicely in the end, weaving some unexpected surprises sure to provide the foundation to the sequel. Kalayna Price’s new book is heavy on the storyline, light on the romance, that built slowly bewteen Alex and her admirers. This has potential for a serious love triangle in the next book. With the foundation set and charaters established I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book.
This is a great book to curl up in your favorite comfy spot and get lost in. For Hours. Highly entertaining. Hard to put down.
