Is this series love triangley I don't mind being spoiled about this aspect of the book if it saves me from another love triangle? I don't mind when there's a well done "romantic" portion through this genre, but I'm not a huge fan of an author who sort of skirts around their shenanigans.
So to speak. Is this whole series is about ALex Croft? Sahra Hachem No, luckily they are all about Alex, who faces a new problem in each book. See all 3 questions about Grave Witch….

Oct 03, Felicia rated it it was amazing Shelves: urban-paranormal , vaginal-urban-fantasy. VERY rarely do I pick up a book and stay up until 2am reading so that I feel gross and tired all day the next day and I don't regret it one bit.
This book did that to me last night, so yay I think? Watch them make out too! That's why it's really tough for me to buy into a world VERY rarely do I pick up a book and stay up until 2am reading so that I feel gross and tired all day the next day and I don't regret it one bit.
That's why it's really tough for me to buy into a world that mixes paranormal and reality in that perfect escapist way we all crave, but for some reason this did it for me! I really enjoyed the world and the plot and the characters. That's all. It's all faerie and witches. The witch magic was really interesting and has the potential to be filled out in interesting ways.
Second, the main character is NOT really mouthy and wounded, she has a relatable POV without being boring, which is super hard to do, she has functional friend relationships The secondary characters are slow-played, added to the main character's life in a believable way, just a nice mixture that was fun.
I mean, let's be clear, this book doesn't re-invent the wheel of urban fantasy, but it does what we expect well and that's all I wanted! So immediately reading the next one. Hope I don't stay up too late and feel icky again like I do today.
It will probably happen. View all 27 comments. I loved it when I reread it before books 2 and 3 came out, too. This time. Again, I say, hmm. There wasn't anything wrong with it. AND there were a lot of borrowed ideas I didn't remember noticing. Like how Alex is a necromancer grave witch who raises zombies spirits of the dead.
Her ability is an embarrassment to her family, and she gets shipped off to boarding school when it becomes clear there is no hiding her magic--if she doesn't deliberately use her gift, it will latch on random dead things of its own volition.
That does sound familiar. Know what else sounds familiar? He always wears gloves. It's almost like he's trying to cover his bloodied hands. Hamilton fan in the house. Then there's the helpful ghost who can and will go places Alex can't, who's just grateful not to be ignored Night Huntress , and the gargoyle who stalks the parameter of her house and the yard of her home The Hollows , and in hindsight. Most of what's left--a Fae friend and landlord, two girlfriends, a snotty younger sister, and an inscrutable father--is flat and underdeveloped.
Even Death the one unique element and his feelings for Alex are just tossed out there without much effort put into the backstory. The "snarky" dialogue also left something to be desired. Why is it Humans First Party supporters hate witches, but sneak in illusion charms for an instant face-lift or boob job? I think there's more Fae, and now that view spoiler [Rianna Alex's college roommate who disappeared hide spoiler ] is back in the picture, I've got my fingers crossed that things get more interesting.
I'll let you know. Pre-review: WELP. At least one reputable blogger claims to have read the forthcoming and looooong awaited fourth installment of this series, so I'ma go ahead and get my reread on.

And a Merry Christmas to you, too. Okaaaaayyyyyy , now that we've established that this book is, indeed, a piece of crap, let's do the non-review thing. Isn't today your lucky day?! Come on, you People of the Despicable Book Taste, let's do this! And flat characters yes, we're in Barnacle Land again: cardboard-like characters with brick-like chemistry. And flat magic. And flat ghosts. And flat everything. The only interesting thing here is Fred the gargoyle.
And he only has one line in the book. That should tell you something right there. And to the overbearing blockhead of a love interest, too. And to the cast of characters in general.
And to the plot. And to the author. And to my lovely neighbor who seems to have fallen in love with his cordless drill. For the second half of the book. I could have kept feeling like this: But no.

The Alex Craft series is written by Kalayna Price. Alex Craft is a grave witch, which means that she has the power to raise the shades of the dead—not ghosts the disembodied spirits of the dead but shades the truth-telling memories of the dead. She operates her own business, called Tongues for the Dead, meaning that she helps the dead to speak. In the usual manner for UF heroines, Alex's magical powers grow stronger and more complex as the series progresses. Nekros only came into existence at the "Great Awakening.
