Grave Witch by Kalayna Price is the first in the Alex Craft urban fantasy series that I’m finally getting to read! I’m a long time fan of a few urban fantasy series, but I tend to be picky and hesitant to start any new series without a lot of reassurances. I’m thrilled to add Alex Craft to the list that I’ll be continuing as soon as I have the chance. If you are a fan of an interesting urban fantasy world, grave magic, and Death being a notable secondary character, give this series a read!

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.
