Review: Grave Witch (Alex Craft #1)

"Grave witch Alex Craft can speak to the dead, but that doesn't mean she likes what they have to say."

Grave Witch, by Kalayna Price, is the first novel the Alex Craft series. It takes place in a fictional, futuristic city called Nekros City (located between Alabama and Georgia) where the supernatural - both witches and fae - have revealed their existence to the world during the Magical . Alex Craft is a private investigator and consultant for the Nekros City police. She is also a grave witch, someone who can speak to the dead and even Death himself.

In her latest case, Alex is investigating a high-profile murder of an elected official. She discovers the use of dark magic among the corpse. Not only are the dead attacking her but someone also tries a serious attempt on her life. Although Death saves her, she is infected by a soul-sucking spell that is gradually eroding her life force. Despite this setback, she continues her life and becomes the first witch to raise a "shade" to the witness stand in the courtroom.

Alex teams up with handsome homicide detective, Falin Andrews, and Roy, a ghost seeking vengeance, to uncover the mysteries behind the dark magic. It is nothing like she has seen before. As more deaths continue continue, they are racing against time to stop the ritual before it costs her life and her soul.

Yes, I am reading new book series in 2012! Two of my favorite authors, Patricia Briggs and Chloe Neill, highly recommended this new author. Since I am now interested in reading more novels about witches, I thought the series looked promising.

Stay tuned for the next novel in the Alex Craft series, Grave Dance.
