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.

    "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.

    No

    Nothing

    Story
    "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?

    "Great Start"

    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.

    "I wasn't sure as first......."

    ....but this book was pretty good. A whole new spin on witches and Fey! Loved it. I was confused a little by the ending, but besides that I can't want to read the second book.

    Story
    "Witches and Elves a good combination"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Grave Witch?

    I can't choose a particular moment. I enjoyed the ghost, elves, witches in a city where all of them live with regular humans together


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

    She gets in character and makes the book and the people in the book come to life.You can't do that when you read the book yourself.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    yes

    Story
    "Weak Story, good performance"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I don't know. If it wasn't the one sex seen, maybe preteens.


    What could Kalayna Price have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The characters were described but not developed. The murder plot could have been better. If she read Jeannine Frost or Discovery of Witches she could get a vibe for an in depth story.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    She did a good job.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Grave Witch?

    My daughter should edit it. The beginning of the story needs to grab you. Close to the beginning there was a great deal of describing the magic world and it was boring.


    Any additional comments?

    The good parts were the friendships, coroner and love interest.
