Review: Grave Memory by Kalayna Price

Jul 22, 2012

Book 3
Alex Craft Series

When the dead need to talk, Alex Craft is always ready to listen…

As a Grave Witch, Alex solves murders by raising the dead—an ability that comes at a cost, and after her last few cases, that cost is compounding. But her magic isn’t the only thing causing havoc in her life. While she’s always been on friendly terms with Death himself, things have recently become a whole lot more close and personal. Then there’s her sometime partner, agent Falin Andrews, who is under the glamour of the Winter Queen. To top everything off, her best friend has been forever changed by her time spent captive in Faerie.

But the personal takes a backseat to the professional when a string of suicides occur in Nekros City and Alex is hired to investigate. The shades have no memory of the days leading up to their brutal endings, so despite the very public apparent suicides, this is murder. But what kind of magic can overcome the human will to survive? And why do the shades lack the memory of their deaths? Searching for the answer might mean Alex won’t have a life to remember at all…

Cindy's Review:
Our wyrd witch, Alex Craft, has discovered many hidden agendas by her father, the police, with who she has worked with for years, the soul collector that has always had her back and the Fae she is trying NOT to love. There is a new game in town that no one even suspects is a case for a Grave Witch. Suicides are happening to people who have no memory of the days prior to their deaths. Alex Craft has raised their "Shades" and found that things are just not adding up to suicide. And the closer she gets the more things are looking GRAVE for her!

I don't quite know what to say right now. I want so badly to spill the beans and talk about what has just happened in this book. But I can't and have you still be surprised. I know I WAS! I feel as if the heroine of our novel has climbed to the highest peak on the tallest mountain...and once she got there we said: Hey babes, make yourself comfortable, there's no way down. Surprise!

Sigh. I LOVE this series. Ms. Price has given us a woman in a tough field that has not turned hard. But sometimes I want to just grab her and tell her to wake up and move on. Pick a color and fly your flag! You have discovered a secret that can be a glorious thing...enjoy it!
