Series: Alex Craft, Book 1
Not even death can save her now. As a grave witch, Alex Craft can speak to the dead-she's even on good terms with Death himself. As a consultant for the police, she's seen a lot of dark magic, but nothing has prepared her for her latest case. When she's raising a "shade" involved in a high profile murder, it attacks her, and then someone makes an attempt on her life. Someone really doesn't want her to know what the dead have to say, and she'll have to work with mysterious homicide detective Falin Andrews to figure out why...
What I thoughtI have to say, I really liked the storyline of this one. I read a few reviews before finally buying this one and all the talk of how hot Death was I was excited for a romance. It wasn't really a romance, but more of a paranormal murder mystery. And I'm not disappointed in the least over that. I loved the mystery, I loved the detective work and I loved watching Alex deal with the lead detective on the case.
I liked Alex. I did. While there are romantic elements (very few, but they exsist), I really liked watching her deal with the world around her. She's strong. She has her vulnerable moments that come with her abilities but she doesn't let it hold her back. She strives to do what is right and to find the truth. She's not a whiner, which is a huge bonus for me.
Pretty promising start to a series. I do plan on getting the next book and seeing where the story takes me.
