Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Is the narrator drunk?"
    What did you like best about Grave Witch? What did you like least?

    I have not finished this and am trying to hang in there, but wanted to jump on to warn others- the reviewers who said the narrator sounded like William Shatner are being kind. She sounds slightly drunk & the sibilant s's in her speech make me cringe. I feel sorry for the author because there may be a decent story here, but I'm having difficulty gettting past the stilted pronounciation to follow the plotline. I have an image of someone shoving her the pages as she's trying to read them. It really makes me angry for the writer and for us, the consumers, that the audio company can't be bothered to hire quality performers.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Haven't finished yet....


    Would you be willing to try another one of Emily Durante’s performances?

    No, no and NO


    Do you think Grave Witch needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Not sure- get back to me if I finish this one.....


    Any additional comments?

    Tavia Gilbert & Lorelei King should start a training school for narrators.....Just saying.

    "Decent Story"
    Would you try another book from Kalayna Price and/or Emily Durante?

    I would read another book by Kalayna Price, but I am not sure about listening to another book narrated by Emily Durante. She wasn't a bad narrator, just not my favorite and I didn't think her voice was right for the main character.


    Would you recommend Grave Witch to your friends? Why or why not?

    Most likely. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoyed Discovery of Witches and books like that.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I didn't care for the performance as a whole.


    Was Grave Witch worth the listening time?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked the story, but wish that the world building had occurred a little earlier. It wasn't until halfway through or so that I really understood how the world was set up and it had been something that I was wondering about the entire time.

    "Not at all what I expected!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A different narrator (not so monotone) and a better story line. It doesn't even start off giving you any background to the story, it just dives right in. I'm completely lost. I think I've only gotten an hour in but it has yet to grab my attention. Even though I only paid $4.95 for the book I still feel ripped off.

    "turns out a good witch is easy to find."

    i think part of that makes a good audio book is the marriage of the story (here it is a great bit if world-building peopled with characters that feel real (at least to me) and the actor doing the read.

    in this case we have a perfect match: excellent story, excellent actor.

    i picked this book up on a whim and I'm very pleased i did because I burned through the rest of the series and am now pining for the next installment.

    snap it up, ladies. I'm on the clock here.

    "WOW"

    This is a great book. I overlooked it many times because I didn't like the cover and was tired of witches and faire's. I was so wrong. Kalayna Price does a great job keeping the mystery a focus instead of romantic entanglements. I bought the second book before I was half way through the first.

    "Good world building"

    I liked the world she's created and the characters in it. I'm looking forward to the next one but I think I'll read it. The narrator on this doesn't really work for me.

    "Fun and easy 'read'..."

    I found myself laughing out loud at times and not wanting to put this one down. It was lighter than some in this genre but still very firmly within the expectations.

    "Does not keep my attention -- boring"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I have tried to listen twice to Part 1 but only get 1/2 way through before I turn it off. This is only my viewpoint.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Kalayna Price again?

    No


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Nothing

    "Unexpected surprise!"
    What made the experience of listening to Grave Witch the most enjoyable?

    Just a very good story line.


    What did you like best about this story?

    You had a real feel for her life and her feelings about the torn feelings in the love triangle she found herself in.


    What does Emily Durante bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Brought the characters to life.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I can't say that it was easy to listen to the book when her life?

    I liked this book I gave it a 4. It was light listening and you didn't need to be too deep into it to know what was going on. I will definitely be listening to the next one.
