Ms. Price has become a master at creating a world full of magic, Fae, and Reapers! I was hooked with Grave Witch, loved Grave Dance, and am now bewitched by Grave Memory. If you are looking for an Urban Fantasy series that is a keeper, give the Alex Craft series a try. I promise you won’t regret it!
The main character of Alex continues through the series and she has major growth. You will root for her as she deals with the complications of her "Gift" and the continuous battle she faces with the usage of it. She has new powers she must learn and she comes across as a real character. She has doubts one minute and a kick ass attitude the next. Her relationship with her best friend is good for her character and her interactions with the ghosts are entertaining.
The love triangle with Death and Falin is just a downright tease for readers! I find myself going back and forth between the two trying to decide who she should end up with. If I had to pick I think I would say Death. Although something for Ms. Price to think about is Alex having both – LOL! In Grave Dance Falin gets a little more time and in Grave Memory it is Death.
As a Grave Witch Alex Craft can see and communicate with the dead. When Alex and her fellow grave witch friend open "Tongues of the Dead Investigations", their first case may turn out to be more than they can handle. They witness a man fall to his death in an apparent suicide. When they are hired to investigate, things take a strange turn when the shade has no memory of his days up to and of his death. He only remembers being murdered and seeing someone commit suicide. Alex and Rianna have many questions and they need to find the answers. How can a shade not remember his death, what magic could be powerful enough to make people kill themselves, and is Alex next?

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 string of suicides occur in Nekros City and Alex is hired to investigate. The shades have no memory of the days leading up to their brutal endings, so despite the very public apparent suicides, this is murder. But what kind of magic can overcome the human will to survive? And why do the shades lack the memory of their deaths? Searching for the answer might mean Alex won’t have a life to remember at all…
