Grave Witch by Kalayna Price
Release date: October 5, 2010
Series: Alex Craft #1
Rating: Four stars!
I haven’t been reading books like this since I started blogging, mainly because they take me a little more time to finish than young adult books do. But I’ve decided I’m going to go back to reading these as well, because I’ve always enjoyed them, and Grave Witch was a breath of fresh air for me. I loved this book.
I was reading vampire books right before the publishing industry exploded with them. Once the shelves were over saturated with vampire novels, I got burnt out on the entire adult paranormal spectrum for a few years. Grave Witch was my reintroduction to Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance books, and I must say I’m now itching for more. Alex is a kick ass main character, strong and yet vulnerable. She’s quirky too, with her cute little dog, and a great sense of humor. Loyal as hell to those close to her.
The story itself is not groundbreaking at all, but each author brings their own ideas to the table and present it slightly different. I enjoyed the story very much despite it not being a fresh idea, because of how Kalayna Price writes it and makes it her own. And it never hurts when there’s not one sexy guy, but two involved. Though I know who I’m leaning towards. Though I don’t see how that relationship can work, but this fiction so that’s all right. I’m definitely looking forward to seeing where Alex is taken in the next book, especially after one of the guys drops the L word at a crucial time.
I’m definitely looking forward to digging into the next book. I recommend this to anyone who just wants something fun to read.
