Grave Witch by Kalayna Price
This is a girl who can talk to the dead, see Death himself (or what I think is more like a Reaper) and uses it all to make money sometimes by solving crimes. I has hooked from the beginning.
Alex Craft is the product of a quite dysfunctional family, stubborn and bad-ass. I really liked her. With her intimacy issues and not so sociable personality. It might have much to do, too, with the fact that her fae lover Falin Andrews kept reminding me of Rowan Whitethorn (another fae hottie from a whole different story).
I think this might mean I have a thing for fae males.
And on top of that, there’s a whole mystery to be unraveled -gory clues, police dodging and unknown enemy interference included- that kept me flipping through pages to be able to figure out who did it!
I think my favorite character might have been the ghost side-kick.
“Then let’s kick some body-stealing ass”
Who wouldn’t love a little helper who cannot be seen, can sneak into all kinds of places and cannot tell on you due to his inability to be seen by anyone else but you?!
Besides, watching Roy Pearson annoy the hell out of Alex until he gets what he want, was really fun.
In case you didn’t notice at the top of this post, or haven’t catch up to my new rating system, I would give this book a very smiley face (or a 4 out of 5, for those who deal better with quantifiable things).
There’s a whole series of books based on this Witch PI character, that I might be adding to my library as soon as next month’s book budget comes in.
