Grave Visions by Kalayna Price is the much-anticipated fourth instalment in the kick-ass urban fantasy series about Alex Craft, a grave witch who can communicate with the dead.
If you want to hear voices from the dead in Nekros City, you call Alex Craft. She's a Grave Witch with reasonable rates and extraordinary powers, who specializes in revealing the secrets of the dead. But now she's the one fighting to keep her own secret. She's not human - and her newly discovered heritage is causing havoc for her both in the human realm and in Faerie.
But her status as an unaffiliated fae also makes her an ideal candidate to investigate a new street drug that has surfaced in several of the spaces between the human and fae worlds. This glamour-infused drug causes hallucinations that turn real - at least for a while and often with deadly consequences. Searching for the source of this drug - and its purpose - lands Alex front and center in the conflict brewing in Faerie and she must find answers before she's dragged so deep she loses her freedom.
Praise for Kalayna Price:

Do you like urban fantasy novels that include the Fae in the world building then jump on board to the Alex Craft series by Kalayna Price. Grave Visions is the latest in the series about a grave witch (she can raise shades, echoes of the dead) Alex Craft as she navigates a world filled with magic and danger. I really love Alex as a character, as she is real and vulnerable, and despite being out of her element a lot of the time she keeps plucking onward. The mystery elements and the Fae remind me of Patricia Briggs Mercy Thompson series which is one of my hands down favorites. So reader’s of Briggs really need to check this series out!! Seriously sample this series and you will be hooked.
Now what I didn’t like about this latest installment was that the personal relationships had no movement, in a startling way, but in an inner conflict for Alex. Nothing is resolved as to Alex’s relationships with either Death or Falin. I guess Alex is officially Death’s girlfriend, but I can’t see that relationship going anywhere. I love Death and Falin, maybe Alex can be split in half!!! I am just as confused as Alex, and I am a little perplexed by Death’s last incarnation in the last quarter of this book. I think Alex missed that one of her hallucinations of death might have been real. Death did say he would come for her no matter what. I think the beginning of the end of her and Death’s relationship was just signaled.
I also have a lot of my hunches, as nothing is ever cut and dry in these books. Price left a lot of loose ends in this book, as Fairie is getting more complete and Alex has a whole lot of decisions to make for he life.
