Grave witch Alex Craft is getting pulled back into deadly fae politics in the thrilling new novel in the USA Today bestselling series.
Grave witch Alex Craft has forged an uneasy truce with the world of Faerie, but she's still been trying to maintain at least some semblance of a normal life in the human world. So it's safe to say that stepping up as the lead investigator for the Fae Investigation Bureau was not a career path she ever anticipated taking.
When an explosion at the Eternal Bloom threatens to upend the fae who make their home in our world, Alex finds herself in charge of the most far-reaching investigation she's ever tackled. And it's only her first week on the job. With the threats mounting and cut off from half her allies, Alex can't wait on the sidelines and hope the fae's conflicts stay contained within their borders.
Price concludes the Alex Craft urban fantasy series (after Grave Destiny) with a heaping serving of chills, adventure, and romance. Alex Craft, a grave witch, has been through the wringer, what with discovering her fae side and reluctantly spending time in faerie land, helping to solve supernatural murders, and seeing her love interest Falin Andrews ascend to the throne of the winter court. Along the way, she's picked up a few enemies most notably the maniacal Ryese, nephew of the late winter queen. Alex, now the lead investigator of the Fae Investigation Bureau, is thrown even deeper into the magical world she's been trying to avoid after Ryese destroys the doors to faerie land, stranding fae courtiers and independents alike in the mortal world. Now Alex must unravel deceptions and vanquish her enemies before faerie land is lost forever. Price provides a satisfying, slightly melancholy end to the series that serves as a jam-packed adventure in its own right while gracefully wrapping up most of the series' ongoing story lines. Fans will not be disappointed.
Alex Craft Comes out on Top
Enjoyed this installment of Alex Craft’s story. The adventure, mystery, and romance were there. For the reason below, I gave it a 4 instead of a 5. Price brought some major plot lines to a satisfying conclusion, but there were some plot holes that opened in this in this book that were not well concluded if this is indeed the final book. Price obviously wanted to give her readers a HEA, which is great, but also rang a little too tidy given the scale of the destruction. Sparing all main characters dampened the emotional impact of the book.
