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.

"[A] captivating series debut." (Publishers Weekly)
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.
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.
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.
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.
Just a very good story line.
You had a real feel for her life and her feelings about the torn feelings in the love triangle she found herself in.
Brought the characters to life.
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.
....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.
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
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.
I don't know. If it wasn't the one sex seen, maybe preteens.
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.
She did a good job.
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.
The good parts were the friendships, coroner and love interest.
