Is this series love triangley Kaayna don’t mind being spoiled about this aspect of the book if it saves me from another love triangle? I don’t mind when there’s a well done “romantic” portion through this genre, but I’m not a huge fan of an author who sort of skirts around hrave shenanigans.
Is this whole series is about ALex Croft? No, luckily sitch are all about Alex, who faces a new problem in each book. See all 3 questions about Grave Witch….
Lists with This Book. Oct 03, Felicia rated it it was amazing Grzve VERY rarely do I pick up a book and stay up until 2am reading so that I feel gross and tired all day the next day and I don’t regret it one bit. This book did that to me last night, so yay I think?
I pick up EVERY urban fantasy novel lately with huge skepticism, because it’s like someone wrote a how-to book everyone uses called “how to mix vampires and werewolves and sassy heroines together!
Watch them make out too! That’s why it’s really tough for me to buy into a world VERY rarely do I pick up a book and stay up until 2am reading so that I feel gross and tired all day the next day and I don’t regret it one bit.
That’s why it’s really tough for me to buy into a world that mixes paranormal and reality in that perfect escapist way we all crave, but for some reason this did it for me! I really enjoyed the world and the plot and the characters. It’s all faerie and witches. The witch magic was really interesting and has the potential to be filled out in interesting ways. Second, the main character is NOT kapayna mouthy and wounded, she has a relatable POV without being boring, which is super hard to do, she has functional friend kalayan The secondary characters are slow-played, added to the main character’s life in a believable way, just a nice mixture that was fun.
I mean, let’s be clear, this book doesn’t re-invent the wheel of urban fantasy, but it does what we expect well and that’s all I wanted!
So immediately reading the next one. Hope I don’t stay up too late and feel icky again like I do today. It will probably happen. View all 27 comments. I loved it when I reread it before books 2 and 3 came out, too. Again, I say, hmm. There wasn’t anything wrong with it.
AND there were a lot of borrowed ideas I didn’t remember noticing. Like how Alex is a necromancer grave witch who raises zombies spirits of the dead. Her ability is an embarrassment to her family, and she gets shipped off to boarding school when it becomes clear there is no hiding her magic–if she doesn’t deliberately use her gift, it will latch on random dead things of its own volition.
That does sound familiar. Know what else sounds familiar? He always wears gloves. It’s almost like he’s trying to cover his bloodied hands. Hamilton fan in the house.
Then there’s the helpful ghost who can and will go places Alex can’t, who’s just grateful not to be ignored Night Huntressand the gargoyle who stalks the parameter of her house and the yard of her home The Hollowsand in hindsight.
Most of what’s left–a Fae friend and landlord, two girlfriends, a snotty younger sister, and an inscrutable father–is flat and underdeveloped. Even Death the one unique element and his feelings for Alex are just tossed out there without much effort put into the backstory. The “snarky” dialogue also left something to be desired.

Why is it Humans First Party supporters hate witches, but sneak in illusion charms for an instant face-lift or boob job? I think there’s more Fae, and now that view spoiler [Rianna Alex’s college roommate who disappeared hide spoiler ] is back in the picture, I’ve got my fingers crossed that things get more interesting.
I’ll let you know. At least one reputable blogger claims to have read the forthcoming and looooong awaited fourth installment of this series, so I’ma go ahead and get my reread on.

Dec 27, It means that pfice I know you’ll go for 1 and you know I’ll go for 2, but in the name of the Holiday spirit and all that crap, let’s remain distant acquaintances friends and pretend this never happened, shall we?
And a Merry Christmas to you, too. Okaaaaayyyyyy witchh, now that we’ve established that this book is, indeed, a piece of crap, let’s do the non-review thing.
Isn’t today your lucky day?! Come on, you People of the Despicable Book Taste, let’s do this! The first half of this book mostly felt like: And flat characters yes, we’re in Barnacle Land again: The only pice thing here is Fred the gargoyle. And he only has one line in the book. That should grxve you something right there. As the flat story progressedit felt increasingly like this: And to the overbearing blockhead of a love interest, too. And to the cast of characters in general.
And to the plot. And to the author. And to my lovely neighbor who seems to have fallen in love with his cordless drill. For the second half of the book. I could have kept feeling like this: This was not to be. Because Kalayna Price is an overachiever, you see. Oh yes, she is. And so thoughtful, too. She thrives to make her readers feel an unprecedented abundance of wonderful, positive emotions such as: And After a while, I also started feeling like: OkaaaaayyyyyyI could go on like this for hours but I’m pretty sure we all have better things to do with our lives like drink a bottle of whiskey or twoso let’s leave it at that, shall we?
The moral of this review is: I can now officially send this delightful series to Doom and Oblivion Land. View all 20 comments. Oct 17, Rane rated it really liked it Shelves: So am pretty picky on what I read when it comes to PNR. When I came across The Grave Witch I liked the few pages I read, and was quickly immersed in the world Kalayna Price created, from witches to fae, bodysnatcher to a cat gargoyle named Fred This book had me on my toes with a race to the last page.
Seventy years ago, the Fae finally told the world they were there, and the world unfolded. Magic is pretty serious business, with many against it and others trying to live their daily life along side it and few whom abuse it.
