Alex Craft, Grave Witch extraordinaire, makes her living solving murders by raising the deceased shade. Her latest case involves an apparent suicide that she was hired to investigate. It should have been an open and shut case, but when she questioned the shade it had no memory of the events leading up to its death, something that has never happened before. When several more suicides pop up with the same circumstances, Alex realizes that these deaths weren't suicides at all but murder. But getting to the bottom of this case may just put her in the crosshairs for the killer's next target.

I really enjoy the framework of this series in that using magic comes with consequences. Alex's vision issues after raising a shade are worse than ever, to the point where it won't be much longer until she becomes fully blind. It would have been so easy to have her new found fae powers to have been a magic fix for this, but that isn't the case and I really appreciated it. In fact there was another opportunity for an easy fix in Grave Memory where Alex was basically completely healed and renewed, yet her vision issues were left alone. I just hate when power comes too easy or there are no real consequences to using such power in books. I vastly prefer there to be responsibility and consequences for power, and this series definitely hits that mark.

Alex's love life is even more complicated than ever, something I didn't think possible. Even though neither man was really a viable option for her due to the circumstances, Falin still seemed to be the more likely of the pair to stand a chance, even if I would have preferred Death to be the victor.

When the dead need to talk, Alex Craft is always ready to listen...

As a Grave Witch, Alex solves murders by raising the dead--an ability that comes at a cost, and after her last few cases, that cost is compounding. But her magic isn't the only thing causing havoc in her life. While she's always been on friendly terms with Death himself, things have recently become a whole lot more close and personal. Then there's her sometime partner, agent Falin Andrews, who is under the glamour of the Winter Queen. To top everything off, her best friend has been forever changed by her time spent captive in Faerie.

But the personal takes a backseat to the professional when a mysterious suicide occurs in Nekros City and Alex is hired to investigate. The shade she raises has no memory of the days leading up to his brutal ending, so despite the very public apparent suicide, this is murder. But what kind of magic can overcome the human will to survive? And why does the shade lack the memory of his death? Searching for the answer might mean Alex won't have a life to remember at all...

I really liked this series when it first came out. Although it reminded me a lot of early LKH (basically Alex Craft had the exact same job as Anita Blake before she went all Ardeur, raising shades of the dead and getting them to testify as to what happened or their wishes after they have departed ...AND working with the police as a consultant to solve murders) It was still fun, and well written. I loved the fact that this character had a very strong female support system, something so few of our female leads in Urban Fantasy seem to have.

I'm not a fan of a Heroine who is a self admitted slut. Call me old fashioned, but I like my heroine to be a bit of a challenge to whoever she is dealing with.

I feel I should review this as 2 books...the first half would be a 3; the last half a 4.25
I really like this series, but this book didn't grab my attention until almost half way in. I found myself skimming through parts that we're either recapping from previous books, or got very complicated and detailed. Granted, Alex's abilities are a bit complex, but the mystery/case that's introduced in the beginning just didn't hold my interest very well.

Although we see a lot of Rhianna, Roy, Tamara and a few other friends in the beginning, as Alex opens her own PI firm, we see very little of Falin or Death. And I'll admit, I like a good bit of romance in my UF series.

It wasn't until about the half way mark that this got rolling for me. The case they're working to solve becomes more interesting. Alex and Falin's interaction is interesting (I officially hate the Winter Queen) and Death finally makes an appearance. Still have the love triangle, but I'm sort of on the fence about it. I think I may be in the minority, and though I do like them both, I'd like to see things work out with Falin. Maybe because there's been more relationship interaction with them. With Death, we definitely do see some progress, and lord knows he's hot, and sweet, and funny, but I just don't see how Death can ever be a real relationship because of what he is (he can't even have a real name!) .... and he can never go to Faerie. Not a good thing as we see Alex becoming a full fledged fae!

So I'm holding out hope things can work out with Falin. He's like that tortured hero that steals your heart- was literally born to be the Queen's knight, taken from his parents as a baby and raised to be her bloodied hands, stripped of his free will from birth.
