Maybe I m just scared to read on lest I run into another female main character having sex with a wereleopard while a room full of people look on. So, we have Alex, a grave witch What the hell is a grave witch Think Anita Blake kinda without all the whorishness Well, there is a bit of whorishness, obviously, because Alex has a rep for having one night stands with drunk dudes in bars She is resisting the guy that wants to sleep with her in this book and he says this You know, for someone with your reputation, you are amazingly difficult to get into bed So, I m guessing that her name and number are on the bathroom wall of a few bars And, they want something raised, but it ain t no dead bodyMan, kid s books are so different than when I was in school But, gotta keep with the times and all that.

And, speaking of Menage s, there is a small triangle in this book, but it barely hits the radar And, for once, I m NOT on Team Death Of course, Death has a crush on Alex He s kind of boring, in my opinion I mean, sure, the whole harvesting people s souls is cool, and he probably has some hilarious work stories, but.

His class was kind of boring too Gimme something new and fresh, death. Personally, I liked Falin, the hot cop but that s not all he is wink wink. No, he s not a father wait, what the hell is going on in this book Why are the dad and son dressed like male strippers Why isn t that little girl wearing a top There is so much wrong here What do you think they are grabbing out of that bag I m guessing it is stripper glitter They must have a family business.

But, don t worry about this being PNR than UF if you are one of the only other ones on the planet who hasn t read it yet The focus is on the mystery and murders I thought it was pretty good and will read in the series But, for now, it s on to this next one on my TBR I heard that Kenny Loggins is really wise. Grave Witch was a decent story with a decent heroine and a whole lot of decently written supernatural happenings But it just wasn t particularly exciting at all I found it an okay way to pass a lazy evening but it didn t get my pulse racing once, didn t make me feel the need to go out and buy Grave Dance, just generally failed to move me in any kind of way The first book of a series should sell the rest of the series to you but it didn t.

So, what did I like I liked Alex Craft the heroine for the most part and, I never thought I d say this in a review, Death is sexy No, that s not me finally going over the edge and taking up necrophilia, that s me talking about the jeans clad, dangerous and amusing Grim Reaper that is always looking over Alex s shoulder I thought he would have made a much interesting love interest yes, I know how weird that sounds than Falin Andrews Andrews seemed alright, a bit of the old serious and broody kind of attractive until we find out he s got really long, platinum blond hair How many times It is only okay for men to have long blond hair if their name is Eric and they re from Bon Temps Only Ms Harris could sell a look that is better suited to Barbie dolls.

I ll tell you what I m also tired of that happens in nearly every novel with a witch long, pointless descriptions of spells, rituals, summonings, etc, etc Unless I discover my inner witch any time soon, I doubt I have the need to know the exact lengthy process that they must go through when casting a spell Whatever happened to bibbity bobbity boo Now, those were the days.

I think it s fair to say I need to leave this genre alone for a while, it s giving me a headache. The quirky yet distinctive opener, followed by some intriguing action Death saved a life why, and is that allowed calmed any concerns that I d made a mistake buying this one but not long after we re stalled, left waiting for the good stuff to happen.

Why did I have such a hard time reading it Ugh why I tried my best to find stuff to like about it Nothing happened Nothing And I m pissed off because I m still looking at all those good reviews and I can t seem to figure out why the hell people liked it.

I did not enjoy the story nor gave a shit about any of the characters in the book And I mean it when I say NONE NADA No character was worthy of my love, admiration and not even hate I did not hate anyone in the book Do you know what this means A hater without hate is like a day without sun Like a happy meal without a toy Like a dolphin without its porn Yes, dolphins watch lots of porn.

Alex is a sad excuse of an urban fantasy heroine She might be good in a paranormal romance, contemporary romance or young adult, whatever you name it, but urban fantasy Bitch please She s a wimp She s not funny She doesn t know how to fight, she s not tough She s just. Taking up the extra space that should belong to a fucking good heroine I d already activated the charm that blocked my image from cameras, so now I just needed to worry about the two people Roy had seen.

Isn t this a bit too silly Am I being too harsh Of course I m being too harsh, that s what I do But anyway, I watched Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol this weekend so I had my ratio of silly ideas bullshit for this week Well, at least MI has its own badass spy excuse but using a charm to block cameras from seeing you Really A charm My mind is having a tough time swallowing this Whenever I feel like I m boring my readers I dress up as a ninja and pretend to have awesome super powers This helps me get over my childhood traumas and the insecurities caused by all the badass heroines who are better than me.

And even though I was excited about the Devil being a character in the book, I can t say that I m happy with what I got regarding him Yes, I know I m the silly one for being excited over something like this but whatever, we all have our little brain gnomes who put weird stuff in our zomg I must have it shelf So I have my excuse And I have my own ideas of how Death can be hot and perfect and the best villain and yet a hero deep down in his nonexistent black heart Death in Magic Graves is a Good Guy Greg One does not simply make Death a Good Guy Greg Death is a force to be reckoned with He makes you want him and yet you shit your pants because of the fear you feel when he looks at you So please cut the crap Oh, and it has a love triangle It s mild, but still there removes one star from the rating I ll take back my star, thank you very much.

I m a big fan of the urban fantasy genre so it is always exciting to discover a new series particularly one as engaging as Grave Witch was This was the first book I ve read by Kalayna Price but I can t wait to continue this series and I m also planning on buying her Haven books ASAP In the world the author has created the public have been aware of witches and the fae for about 70 years and although there is some prejudice between them and the humans in general they are accepted With the Humans First political party gaining popularity this could change in the future though I was really interested in finding out about all the different kinds of witches, they each have very different abilities and Alex s grave magic is one of the rarer forms There are also all kinds of fae creatures to watch out for.

I found Alex a likeable heroine, her power has limitations meaning she doesn t come across as too perfect to be real and she has a lot of the same worries as normal people do which makes her easy to relate to The after effects of using her grave sight were fascinating especially the developments towards the end and I thought Alex was brave to continue using the sight considering what happened to her afterwards She isn t a perfect PI, in fact she missed quite a few clues along the way, but she is determined and once she sets her mind on something she will do whatever it takes to see it through even it that does mean bending the rules a little.
