Great read, can't wait for the next one!,
This review is from: Grave Dance (Alex Craft Novels) (Mass Market Paperback)
This is the second book in the Alex Craft series. I absolutely loved the first book so I had very high expectations for this one and the author did a great job of meeting them . . . mostly.
When several left feet are discovered Alex, a grave witch, is called in by the police to consult as she can raise the spirit of the dead to find out what happened to them. The problem is with so little body Alex cant do her job. Alex has also recently found out that she is feykin and is trying to figure out what that means for her life. With the help of her friends, the yummy winter fey queens knight and the delectable soul collector she calls Death, Alex must find out what is happening and fast!
This book was a little slow to start for me and to be honest I'm not entirely sure why, I simply struggled but once I got passed the first few chapters I was as hooked as I was with the first booked. The action flows brilliantly and the characters are great, Alex is particularly likeable for me as she is so normal and flounders when she is shoved into unusual situations which makes it more realistic for me. Falin is a puzzle for me I honestly can't decide if I like him or not and I'm not entirely sure it's not because I'm a little bit in love with Death, the soul collector, but I would like to have seen more of him and I was expecting more of a development in the relationship between Alex and Death.
Overall I really enjoyed the second installment of this series. It is a great urban fantasy story with action, mystery, emotion and intrigue! I am looking forward to the next Alex Craft tale.
