Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, highlighting the upcoming releases being eagerly awaited by all of us bibliophiles.
This week's Waiting on Wednesday title is:
The second installment in the Alex Craft series finds Alex still recovering from the events of Grave Witch (Alex Craft, Book 1). Her love life is more complicated than ever, her grave witch powers are still causing problems and her family situation is a mess. However, there's still work to be done and Alex is ready to take on more mysteries. Here's the Goodreads synopsis:
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...
I'm interested to see how things develop between Detective Andrews and Alex, as well as her complicated relationship with Death. I love Alex's character, she's strong, witty and smart, but flawed. Her judgment isn't always the best and sometimes using her magic causes her to seek out random hook-ups to replenish her body temperature. But, she has a good heart and goes out of her way to help others, even if they don't deserve her help. I really enjoyed the first book, Grave Witch (Alex Craft, Book 1) and am looking forward to reading Grave Dance: An Alex Craft Novel when it is released on July 5.
