Synopses & Reviews
After a month spent recovering from a vicious fight with a sorcerer, grave witch Alex Craft is ready to get back to solving murders by raising the dead. With her love life in turmoil thanks to the disappearance of Fae Investigation Bureau agent Falin Andrews and a shocking "L" word confession from Death himself, Alex is eager for the distractions of work. But her new case turns out to be a deadly challenge.
The police hire Alex to consult on a particularly strange investigation in the nature preserve south of Nekros City. The strange part: There are no corpses, only fragments of them. A serial killer is potentially on the loose, and Alex has no way to raise a shade without a body, so she'll have to rely on the magic of others to find leads. But as she begins investigating, a creature born of the darkest magic comes after her. Someone very powerful wants to make sure the only thing she finds is a dead end—her own.
"Fascinating magic, a delicious heartthrob, and a fresh, inventive world." ---Chloe Neill, author of Hard Bitten
In the second entry in Kalayna Price's Alex Craft series, Alex is ready to get back to solving murders by raising the dead—but when her new case forces her to overuse her magic, it might be the last mystery she ever gets to solve.
