I really love this world that Kalayna Price has created. It features mostly witches and fae. Alex Craft is our main character and is a grave witch. She can raise shades of the dead to help police find out what happened to them and other things.

In this one, Alex has to help the Shadow Prince and the Winter Queen solve a murder of a member of Shadow Court that takes place in the Winter Court. Then there is Death’s boss, The Mender, has his own agenda for Alex. Oh, I can’t forget that his father is up to something too. The poor girl is pulled into so many directions in this book (actually, that might be everybook). A lot happens in this book and it ends with a lot of changes in store for the next book.

This is a fun urban fantasy. If you like investigations and fae politics, then this is the series for you. The characters are a lot of fun and the worldbuilding is complex. I’m not sure how long the wait will be, but I’m eager for the next book.

Grave Destiny Narration

4.5 Hearts

Emily Durante has always read this series and I’ve really enjoyed narration. She has no issues with the ever growing cast filled with many men, women and creatures of all kinds. I always look forward to listening to this series and Durante is part of that reason. I can’t even imagine just reading this series without Durante.

I’m Melanie and I live in Ohio. I have two horses and a dog. I’m an animal lover, avid book reader and audiobook listener. I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and listening to mostly fictional books in the paranormal genre, including Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance and Horror. My favorite paranormal creatures are shifters, doesn’t matter the flavor.

    • I’m not listening to nearly as many as I used to. But I do like finding gems that aren’t getting as much attention as some of the others.

  11. This is a series that I have looked at several times over the years. I do hope to get to it someday. I am thrilled to see that you are still having a great time with it.
