Grave Dance (Alex Craft #2)
by: Kalayna Price
$7.99 mass market paperback
Released: July 2011
When body parts start showing up all over the city, Grave Witch Alex Craft is called in to consult with the police. After a month of down time from her last fight, she's more than ready to get back to work. What she finds, however, is something that stumps even her. The police have found multiple severed feet, but Alex needs a full body in order to raise a shade, so she must rely on good old fashioned detective work to solve this case.
As she digs deeper, she realizes there's more at play than she realizes, and there are dark forces that will do anything to make sure she doesn't succeed. Add to that weird powers coming to light from her Fae blood, an MIA faerie lover, and the comforting (but awkward) presence of Death after his declaration of love, and you've got more than even Alex can handle.
I loved the first book , and I really got into this one as well. I'm glad I re-read the first one right before this one because book 2 takes right off, and the refresher was nice. The characters take on even more depth, and Alex's strange powers are explained a bit more in here. Falin makes another appearance, and lucky for him he had a good reason for disappearing or else I really would have been mad at him. Death is the constant, but although the innuendo between him and Alex is hotter, it's doubtful it could go anywhere. He is Death, after all. Still, we all have our favorite characters and I'm rooting for Death.
