You know you have issues when your back up is a six pound dog and Death's minions.

High off her 15 minutes of fame after raising a shade on tv, business is booming at Tongues for the Dead. Unfortunately for Alexis Craft it seems like everyone wants a piece of her. The Nekros PD and independent fey want Alex to find a killer, the Winter Queen and Shadow King are trying to recruit her, mortal magical skimmers want to use her, while Death and Falin are trying to woo her.

Alexis Craft is up to her neck in.... Feet? Well, no one said her job was uninteresting. Alex is on the case of a serial murderer with a serious right foot fetish. Because only finding feet wasn't weird enough, they all had to be left feet. Unfortunately Craft can't raise a shade from foot alone, and any attempt Alex and her buddies at the NPD have made to find the bodies has yielded nothing. Literally. Like the feet only ever existed without an entire body. Of course this is only one of Alex's on going problems. It seems the Blood Moon ritual has awoken her Fey Soul. Craft is now finding it increasingly more difficult to lie, she is also developing a very annoying intolerance to iron, and her powers as well seem to be growing. Alex can now see across multiple plans of reality at once. This new ability not only makes her a hot commodity, it also puts her life in danger. But it's not like homicidal attempts are anything new for Alex. Especially when an abnormally high number of imaginary magical creatures keep trying to kill her. If the bad guys don't succeed her would be lovers might. Falin Andrews reappears after being MIA for a month, and the love triangle heats up with a little deathly drama as Mr. Muerte shows his interest and tries to keep the Queen's Bloodied Hands off Alexis.

Alex has spent plenty of time recovering from the outcome of the showdown at the end of Grave Witch, and is more than ready to get back out there. She really needs the distraction from her messy love life and throws herself head first into her latest case. Problem is that there will be no easy solve on this one. They are only finding pieces of bodies, no where near enough to raise a shade. Her investigations put her front and center and she becomes the prime target. Someone wants her dead in a bad way and it will take everything she has to pull out of this mess alive, let alone in one piece.

In the aftermath of the Blood Moon in the last book, Alex has noticed some major changes in herself. Her fae heritage is making itself well know and is definitely complicating things. She has developed new abilities as well as some difficulty controlling her old ones. It is almost as if that showdown unlocked a door to her potential. The downside to that is she now has to deal with the implications of being far without growing up knowing the "rules." Her new found sensitivity to iron as well as an inability to lie are all part of her growing pains. The lying in particular is going to be a very rough one as it will take time to learn to twist her words around in order to tell the truth yet mislead. That being said I have a feeling that once she comes into her own she will be more powerful than most of the far put together. She just seems to be able to harness so much raw power as well as break down glamour whereas other fae cannot. I'm really looking forward to seeing more of her journey and hope she is able to stay true to herself.

Alex's love life could not possibly be more complicated.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I'm a sci fi fan, but the shortage of good new sci fi has reluctantly got me into fantasy and even more reluctantly into "supernatural romance". I spend a lot of time cringing at books that are Harlequin Romances with a dash of vampires.
While this novel definitely had an element of supernatural romance, it wasn't too cringe worthy, and it was primarily urban fantasy. There was the mandatory love triangle with two supernatural this case a Faery Assassin from the Winter Court and Death (or, more precisely, a Grim Reaper). Fortunately, the author skipped the all-too-common bit where the love interests act devoted to the point of being servile while the protagonist abuses them for no apparent reason to show she is independent.
Another common trap thing the author avoided was describing the character as incredibly "kick ass" and then having her constantly get beat up. This character is NOT "kick ass". She isn't a helpless putz either...she is a consultant called in by the police, who is now very much out of her depth. About as good at combat as your typical forensic accountant. In some ways she is more sensible then most fantasy heroes. She calls the cops when she is attacked, a couple times she plans ahead and does the obvious things to investigate. (Surprisingly lacking in a lot of fantasy).
The mystery element is decent but not great. The character development of the heroine is very good. Unlike many heroes, she does not exist in a void. She has a family history, friends, roommates. You don't often see urban fantasy where the protagonist has roommates. I like the description of how her powers work, and her built in weaknesses.
