Grave Dance by Kalayna Price (VO)

Alex Craft, Book 2

Synopsis : Whoever said dead men tell no tales obviously never met Alex Craft.

After a month spent recovering from a vicious fight with a sorcerer, grave witch Alex Craft is ready to get back to solving murders by raising the dead. With her love life in turmoil thanks to the disappearance of Fae Investigation Bureau agent Falin Andrews and a shocking “L” word confession from Death himself, Alex is eager for the distractions of work. But her new case turns out to be a deadly challenge.

The police hire Alex to consult on a particularly strange investigation in the nature preserve south of Nekros City. The strange part: There are no corpses, only fragments of them. A serial killer is potentially on the loose, and Alex has no way to raise a shade without a body, so she’ll have to rely on the magic of others to find leads. But as she begins investigating, a creature born of the darkest magic comes after her. Someone very powerful wants to make sure the only thing she finds is a dead end—her own.
Review : I really like this second novel, as much as the first one. Alex is hired by the police to help them to find a murderer who just leaves behind him some feet. But she can’t raise the dead with only that.
By integrating this investigation, she is involved in a very bad story. It will draw the winter queen attention, which is not a good thing, mainly now she has a lot of secrets to hide. She is determined to do what she wants with her life and not to be afraid by other.
We will see Falin, who after a long absence, decides he wants to come back in her life. But Death doesn’t agree with this, mainly since his declaration. Alex doesn’t know who she musts choose between the two of them. (I totally understand, I think the choice is very complicated !) Despite the fact no one can help her, they will be by her site when she will need it.

We will learn about the origins of our heroine, her new powers and the consequences of the Coleman’s death from the first volume. Every characters will be here. Even Roy who wants to stay with Alex to help her (when there are no soul collectors near him, of course).

The author introduces new fairies creatures which are really interesting and some new very binding laws. Alex will have to make some choice, and I’m very curious about it !

  1. I loved this one even more than the first. Alex has a difficult choice between Falin and Death but I have to confess I’m currently on team Death (that may change when I get to read the 3rd book though lol)
