Publisher's Summary

Grave witch Alex Craft is getting pulled back into deadly fae politics in the thrilling new novel in the USA Today best-selling series.

Grave witch Alex Craft has forged an uneasy truce with the world of Faerie, but she's still been trying to maintain at least some semblance of a normal life in the human world. So it's safe to say that stepping up as the lead investigator for the Fae Investigation Bureau was not a career path she ever anticipated taking.

When an explosion at the Eternal Bloom threatens to upend the fae who make their home in our world, Alex finds herself in charge of the most far-reaching investigation she's ever tackled. And it's only her first week on the job. With the threats mounting and cut off from half her allies, Alex can't wait on the sidelines and hope the fae's conflicts stay contained within their borders.

Contains mature themes.

Good book, but why end a good series???

Was this a good place to end this? Was the author just tired of these characters? Of the last few series finales, I guess this wasnt the worst. Seeing as I started this series 3 years ago, this is all fresh to me. It seems like a drastic stop in production of a higher quality series.

What happened to Death? How did the Light Court react to all that happened? The Mender? Terrible Tim? What about those three days in Summer? The Summer Kings request?

Did these authors watch the finale of the Sopranos and say, "Yup, that's what I'll do too"... or GoT and think... I'm gonna make some stuff up in the end like that show just so I can save some time. Maybe my loyal fans wont notice. Ughhhh 😡

Sorry, the book is good as a PART of the series. It just sucked this is the end. And no I dont want some side story about the boring human friend. 🙄

My bad. I went there again... the narration was great... so I'll end on a high note.

Good Story, Interesting Twist

I enjoyed the twists to the story line, but feel there were just a couple of small details that were unresolved. This is only a concern if the series is now ending. It at least feels that way. Fun book.

satisfying end to a great series

I’m sad that this series ended, but it was a good ending. She may have been able to get a few more stories before the ending, but still good.

disappointing

This gets three stars because I really enjoyed the series, but this final installment was really lacking in my opinion. It starts out with a lot of action and then really goes nowhere. I can usually finish one of these books in a day, but I just kept putting it down so I could take up something else. Not a lot really happens, though the series is now wrapped up.

Great ending to the series

I wish it wasn't the end but it was well done. This will become one of the series I re-read periodically just to hang out with the characters again. I'm looking forward to other books the author may write.

Great Ending

Great ending to the story. I was not looking forward to the end, because I really enjoy these books, but if there had to be an end, this was a very good ending. I still have questions about her father's politics, being who he ended up in the story, since that was not explained. Anyway, I may start back over and listen to all of them again.

Grave War

This was a great conclusion to the Alex Craft series. I was sad to see it end and at the same time, I feel it is still open to a few spin off series.

Great story with an amazing array of characters. I will definitely reread this series.

Can't stand this narrator

I've physically read all of the other Alex Craft novels, but I figured I'd listen to this one since I don't have a lot of time for reading recently. This narrator made it impossible to finish this book. Her voice is like an aural valium. She doesn't pick up any of Alex's snark or sass it's all monotone and boring. The worst narrator I've ever heard.
I haven't finished the book yet, I'm switching back to my physical copy, but so far the story is just as intriguing as the previous entries.
