Grave Witch (Alex Craft #1) by Kalayna Price
Grave witch Alex Craft can speak to the dead, but that doesn’t mean she likes what they have to say.
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.
I was skeptical about this series because the reviews vary but since I won a copy of Grave witch in a giveaway, I decided to give it a chance. And, I wasnt dissappointed. I liked the dynamics of the book, the main character Alex, the world that the writer builded but especially I liked Death and Falin Andrews. They are both yummy and I honestly cannot decide who I like more, the quiet, protective and sexy Death or the brooding, frustrating and hot Fallin. Both are amazing characters and I really enjoy reading about them. Alex, the main heroine of the series, is a smart, resourceful grave witch (and something else *wink*) and I like her quips and I really liked her dog PC. I am curently halfway through book 2 and it is interesting. I am truly enjoying this series.
