Alex Craft #1
by Kalayna Price
Grave witch Alex Craft can speak to the dead, but that doesn’t mean she likes what they have to say.
As a private investigator and consultant for the police, Alex Craft has seen a lot of dark magic. But even though she’s on good terms with Death himself—who happens to look fantastic in a pair of jeans—nothing has prepared her for her latest case. Alex is investigating a high profile murder when she’s attacked by the ‘shade’ she’s raising, which should be impossible. To top off her day, someone makes a serious attempt on her life, but Death saves her. Guess he likes having her around...
To solve this case Alex will have to team up with tough homicide detective Falin Andrews. Falin seems to be hiding something—though it’s certainly not his dislike of Alex—but Alex knows she needs his help to navigate the tangled webs of mortal and paranormal politics, and to track down a killer wielding a magic so malevolent, it may cost Alex her life...and her soul.

The Book: It took me awhile to get into this book to tell you the truth...I don't know why. However, once I got into it - I couldn't get enough! I loved it...LOVED IT. I love Alex's attitude toward everything (I don't know what this says about me). I found this world of magic, death, fae and crime to be quite fun to delve into! Also - hello hotties! Yes, I really did just say that. Death is an awesome enigma of a character and I love how Price made Death's caring/love/interest in Alex very obvious for the reader, but left Alex going, "...nahhhh." lol I honestly love that in stories. And then we get Falin *swoons* I love the "I hate you...but I kinda love you" trope!! And Falin does such a great job of sparring with Alex. I love Alex's toughness, but fault of listening to her emotions. What's wrong with emotions???? Needless to say - I cannot wait to read the second part and get more of this life of Alex, but also this lovely love triangle I find myself in when reading. This is truly saying something because I usually hate love triangles, but in this case I like both Death and Falin and I want to know how their personal stories play out.
The Vaginal Fantasy Video: Hilarious. I love these ladies. They run off in a bunch of tangents, but they are so funny! I enjoyed the video game references, recommendations, and the overall hilarity. Also - really enjoyed the fact that Felicia said we would get more in depth with the characters in book two of this series - so looking forward to it!
Also - taxidermy mice. LOVE.
