After a month of down time, Grave Witch Alex Craft is ready to get back to solving murders by raising the dead. With her love life in turmoil, Alex is eager for the distractions of work. But when her new case forces her to overuse her magic, it might be the last mystery the Grave Witch ever gets to solve...

GRAVE DANCE continues the Alex Craft series with humor, action, magic, suspense and mystery. I love just about everything in Alex Crafts world. The characters are interesting and well developed, the world building is creative, engaging and all around phenomenal. Alex continues to be involved in a love triangle and I really like both Death and Falin. Death is sexy, dangerous and mysterious. Falin is of course sexy, but also can be there with Alex at any time where death can only be there at certain times. Alex really found out some interesting things about her self and her heritage in GRAVE DANCE as well as some things from her childhood she didn't even remember. I'm hoping Price will dig deeper into Alex's dad and in the next book. I also really like Alex's magic. Kalayna does a really good job with making everything feel real with all the details she puts into everything. There are quite a few people either trying to get Alex on their side or trying to kill her and even though there was a lot going on it all flowed really well together and kept me interested in reading the book which is always a major plus in my eyes. I will keep buying the books as long as Kalayna is writing them.

I gave it 4/5 stars
