110:59 Grave Witch by Kalayna Price

The first book in the Alex Craft series.  Alex Craft is a grave witch.  She can raise shades and speak to ghosts and is on good terms with Death.  She's been asked in to investigate a high-profile murder and gets much more than she bargained for.  Much, much more.  Dark magic is involved and someone is definitely after her.

A good first novel for the series and really, I would have given it a 3.5 stars if I could have but I ended up rounding down because there were places were it was just a bit too slow paced and I think the writing needing to be a bit tighter.  The characters were good and fairly lively.  The main protagonist had a lot of good points but did she really have to remind herself every single time not to thank her fae roommate?  There were a few points like that which were just unnecessarily repeated but yet she never wondered why the detective is wearing gloves?  She wasn't as clueless as some heroines and I liked that even if she couldn't depend on the cavalry to come save her, she wasn't going to go down without a fight and gives it her all.

In all tho, it had some new and interesting twists in a new setting.  Intriguing and fresh and I'm already starting the next one.
