Grave Witch by Kalayna Price
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I can't believe I have to wait until July for the next book! AHH!
This book was AWESOME! Scared the crap out of me in a few places in the begining - but now I can't imangine the book without Death or Roy popping up all over the place :)
This book had everything - the spooks - the different worlds - I've never been big on the Fae people - but they did keep true to some of their traditions - never thank and fae - never say sorry - the never ending dance :) I always thought there was a Never Drink with a fae too - but I guess that one was changed a little.
Then there was Fred - the gargoyle pet - I really love gargoyles :) and I want one too!
The end was a little predictable with WHOM the last victim would be - but it worked - I wasn't expecting the "Shadow Girl" part though. Seemed like it was hard killing off the bad guy too -
The ending made me laugh - she got back at her dad and still go what she deserved :) So that was good. I hope the next book has more and more of Falin in it - he seems to really be good for her. But then again ... she's known Death since she was 5 ... Next book is going to be great though. I seriously can't wait :)
The book ...
As a private investigator and consultant for the police, Alex Craft has seen a lot of dark magic. But even though she’s on good terms with Death himself—who happens to look fantastic in a pair of jeans—nothing has prepared her for her latest case. Alex is investigating a high profile murder when she’s attacked by the ‘shade’ she’s raising, which should be impossible. To top off her day, someone makes a serious attempt on her life, but Death saves her. Guess he likes having her around…
To solve this case Alex will have to team up with tough homicide detective Falin Andrews. Falin seems to be hiding something—though it’s certainly not his dislike of Alex—but Alex knows she needs his help to navigate the tangled webs of mortal and paranormal politics, and to track down a killer wielding a magic so malevolent, it may cost Alex her life…and her soul.
