Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy

Urban fantasy series are becoming more and more diverse in terms of the paranormal elements that make up their worlds. It’s not enough to just have vampires or werewolves, readers want it all. And that’s exactly what Kalayna Price delivers in her increasingly gripping Alex Craft series.

Witches, fae, ghosts, and grim reapers are just a few of the supernatural creatures that populate Alex Craft’s Nekros City, a magical meets mundane world where humans can buy charms for just about anything, the dead can be raised to testify against their murderers, and the fae have their own branch of the FBI. It’s an endlessly entertaining world that serves as a perfect setting for the story in GRAVE MEMORY.

Alex and her fellow Grave Witch friend (witches with the ability See and communicate with the dead) have recently opened Tongues For The Dead, a magical PI firm. Their first case proves to be more than either of them expected. As the body count rises, and Alex discovers much more than she was ever supposed to, her debt to Death may have to be paid. Death, as in the Grim Reaper, has always been my favorite character in this series. The flirtation he and Alex have always shared hints at so much more, and I loved getting to learn more about him and see him finally decide to risk it all for Alex.

Alex Craft is quickly becoming one of the heavy hitting protagonists in urban fantasy. GRAVE MEMORY makes more than a few bold choices that will have lasting implications on Alex and those she cares about (especially the ending! What an evil–but sooo good–way to end a book). The good news is that Kalayna has signed on with Roc for at least three more Alex Craft novels. Can’t wait.
