Review: Grave Visions by Kalayna Price

Title: Grave Visions

Author: Kalayna Price

Genre: Urban Fantasy

Series: Alex Craft (Book #4)

Publication Date: February 2, 2016

Format: Paperback, 340 Pages

ISBN-10: 0451416570 (ACE/Penguin)

ISBN-13: 978-0451416575 (ACE/Penguin)

Reviewed by: Roxanne

Synopsis:

If you want to hear voices from the dead in Nekros City, you call Alex Craft. She’s a grave witch with reasonable rates and extraordinary powers who specializes in revealing the secrets of the dead. But she has her own secrets. She’s not human—and her newly discovered heritage is causing havoc for her both in the human realm and in Faerie.

Fae can’t survive without a tie to Faerie, and now that Alex’s true nature has awoken, she’s no exception. She must align herself to a court and soon. To retain as much freedom as possible, she makes a deal to track the source of a new glamour-infused street drug which causes hallucinations that kill—and not just the user. Her investigation entangles Alex in a conflict brewing in Faerie, and she must find answers before she’s dragged so deep that she loses not only her freedom, but her life.

Quick & Dirty: People are dying and there is no visible cause of death. Alex knows something dangerous is going on…

Opening Sentence: The first time I raised a shade for profit, my client fainted.

Excerpt: Yes

The Review:

Alex is still dealing or not dealing with her weird living situation, she and Falin barely speak. Plus, she is sort of really dating Death. Now if the situation wasn’t complicated enough, to top it all off she is coming down with something as is Rianna and the other fae in her castle. When her father picks her up and brings her to the pocket reality in his house, she finds that she also has a betrothed and if her problems aren’t strange enough she is fading because she is not Independent or aligned with a court.

Adding to the problems Jensen calls her in off the books to raise the shades of some weird deaths, he is afraid the fae are involved and he doesn’t want any bad publicity unless they can prove it. When the one shade mentions he took Glitter, they both wonder what kind of new drug that is, but Alex begins to wonder if it might be more when she is summoned to the Winter Court, and has to raise the ghost of a dead fae.

With more deaths showing up every day, Alex is in a race against time to find out what is killing the humans, and to figure out how to stop from fading or dying herself. She is on the hunt for a new drug, a way to keep out of court politics and to save her life.

I think this is the book that kind of completely sways me to Falin, although I still don’t hate either man. Although sadly most of the romance in this one is with Death, but I love how Alex doesn’t lie or hide the fact that she has feelings for both, and that really both situations are so complicated that she really can’t be with either of them. Not too much Roy or Rianna which is kind of a disappointment because I adore them and what they add to the books.

The newest book in the series is supposed to be out July 4th and I can’t wait to see where Kalayna continues to take this series. I have loved every minute of rediscovering how much I adore this series, and I hope that you all enjoy as much as I do!

Notable Scene:

I glanced a the bodies at my feet. Both teens had imbibed Glitter and now their shades were weak, exhausted. The first victim we knew of, Jeremy, had also taken the drug and had a weak shade. There had to be a connection. The drug somehow burned them out to their core. And it had something to do with pure glamour.

2. Grave Dance

3. Grave Memory

    I admit to not having heard of this series previously, but then again I’ve only dabbled in this particular genre. That being said, it sounds pretty good! I might have to read up a little bit more on it now…thanks for the share!
