    Update 2:

    Ooooooh. EMMMM. GEEE.

    My prayers to the author lord have been answered, because I have never seen a more redefining moment for a series that I loved to pieces prior. BECAUSE HOLY CRAP THAT ENDING. Was. Amazing. Grave Destiny was written well; down the pacing, action, new friendships, sarcasm, political machinations, mystery, and best of all, my

    greatly desired faerie romance. How DID she do it???

    My prayers to the author lord have been answered, because I have never seen a more redefining moment for a series that I loved to pieces prior. BECAUSE HOLY CRAP THAT ENDING. Was. Amazing. Grave Destiny was written well; down the pacing, action, new friendships, sarcasm, political machinations, mystery, and best of all, my

    greatly desired faerie romance. How DID she do it???

    Ya'll, let me tell you, I have been FIGHTING hard core for that faerie since book one. I know there's team Faerie Freaking Falin, and team Death, but there's only one true suitor. And I'll tell you I had my

    doubts with this so slow burn-I'm-practically-rotisserie-now love triangle. But Falin is forever *insert heart eyes*. <3

    I am beside myself because I could have sworn this book was the last, but I need more. I THINK there's a 7th book, but in all honesty I need at least two more books something. Alex still has so much to learn and to grow, but her journey thus far from Grave Witch has been a joy to read. There's still plenty left to explore, especially further into her relationship with her father and her faerie heritage. Heck, is that a new job entirely I see? I enjoyed seeing less of Death *avoids being stoned*, and seeing (hopefully) more of Dugan in the future with consideration to what transpired in Grave Destiny. Hmmm.

    Overall, I don't mind reading about fae politics as one of the nearest and dearest series to me was the Wicked Lovely series. In some ways, this is just good old sweet nostalgia.

    Kalayna, I beg you to keep writing because this is the seriously good stuff.

    Update 1:

    SAY WAHT SUDDEN RELEASE DATE. *drops everything to read this book*

    I JUST WANT IT.

    I always know when I open an Alex Craft book I am going to get one heck of an action packed adventure. One that will keep me rapidly turning the pages and engaged the whole way through.

    I have loved these characters from the very beginning and even though I once thought myself as not a fan of anything having to do with the fae, this series completely changed my mind.

    From the very first page it was obvious this series stood out. The deceit, the lies, the glamour, the mystery, the death

    From the very first page it was obvious this series stood out. The deceit, the lies, the glamour, the mystery, the deaths, magic...just all of it. The very characters themselves are memorable and with each new installment I find myself more and more in love with it.

    The latest installment had even more of all the things I have come to know and love about this series. So much more was revealed and slowly meted out. The twists, the turns, that unbelievable ending! I seriously am so excited about the direction this series is headed and I couldn't be more excited for the next book.

    It’s always a real pleasure to find a new Alex Craft novel, so how can I resist this 6th volume? Well, I can’t and I was really looking forward to finding out what the author was going to propose, and I’m thrilled!

    Alex needs help to control her powers, but now she finds herself in a story that is completely beyond her control. Dugan and Falin need her to investigate a murder that could well lead to a war. As a team, our three heroes will have to face several monarchs but above all several plots that could well change the kingdoms in a way! But what they might find out could change the deal!

    I’m always a little afraid of being disappointed with the growing number of novels in a saga, but that’s far from being the case and I was completely swept away! The alliance between the three characters is surprising, but the whole thing works perfectly and I must admit that I was really curious to see how things would end. Besides, I can say that I was very surprised by the ending which makes me want to have the next one even more! Arghh, why do we always have to wait? I want the rest now!

    In any case, I had a really good time with this novel and I loved discovering this new story! It’s a series that I recommend!

    Alex wants to find a way to learn more about her powers when she is hired both by the shadow and winter courts to uncover murders that have taken place in the winter court. Alex finds herself, with Dugan and Falin, traversing a tenuous path that has them all in the sights of the killer.

    Price writes a strong and masterfully engaging addition to the Alex Craft series. The mystery will keep you guessing till the end while captivating the reader with characters that you just can't help but to route

Can't help but love the friendships the Alex creates as she is tuggled through the fae world.

    Solid 4.5 star read for me.

    OMG OMG OMG!

    Ok, so let me tell you a story (a short one this time, I promise!).

    It was a good read 'til about 80%, then it became really good and, at about 91%, I couldn't put it down. Problem was, I had to get to work (and, so nice of me, I did). But after about one hour after I started, I kept thinking about the book and what will happen. So guess what I did?

    Yup, I was pretending to work while I was reading the book.

    Don't know what that says about my work ethic but you know what that says about

    I can't believe this book had some sort of closure! Not the end of the series (really hope so) but at least we got something and it's appreciated.

    If you're reading the review, you probably read the series. If not, you should definitely start (and don't stop when the stories get predictable and normal, it's worth reading through those and getting to this book).

    We see Alex evolve. And finally, she ends up with

    Yes, it is definitely worth reading!

    The story seems to be ever increasingly rooted in Faerie. Grave magic did play a role in this although it was a small one. I miss it that Alex no longer seems to be straddling two worlds, but it may be a temporary break from that. Rather momentous things happened. Alex’s life will no longer be the same.

    My feelings are mixed about how some things have turned out, but it is good that Alex’s path has become more clear. She learned much more about her magic and the history of faerie. Knowin

    My feelings are mixed about how some things have turned out, but it is good that Alex’s path has become more clear. She learned much more about her magic and the history of faerie. Knowing the history makes it easier to understand what needs to be done.

    The love triangle seems to have been resolved by default rather than by Alex’s choice, but I strongly emphasize seems to have been. Things went one way that strongly opened the door for one suitor, but something else important happened that may have opened the door for the other.

    Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for giving me this in exchange for an honest review!

    3.5 Stars, but I’m rounding up because although it wasn’t to my personal taste, that doesn’t mean it’s not interesting and well written.

    Definite mixed feelings on this book. While it was nice to have a new book after a wait of two years, the storyline didn’t tick all of my boxes. When the plotline centered on the case and Alex’s talents as a grave witch/plane weaver, the story was fine. Unfortunately (for me) the case took place entirely in faerie. I’m not a huge fan of the fae by a long stretch

When the plotline centered on the case and Alex’s talents as a grave witch/plane weaver, the story was fine. Unfortunately (for me) the case took place entirely in faerie. I’m not a huge fan of the fae by a long stretch; they are by far my least favorite UF paranormals. While I enjoy reading the politics of various paranormal groups; I don’t enjoy reading about fae politics…because again, I don’t care for the fae. This is a personal reading bias, others may love it. On that note, I also have to say that I miss the early books which were about Alex’s cases and raising the dead to get info from them. The latter books are all fae, all the time; and the series has lost track of where it came from, which is a bummer.

    As to the rumor that this is to be the last book of the series, the ending gave off the vibe that it could go either way. Lots of threads were tied up a satisfactory enough fashion, including Alex’s personal dilemma with the men in her life. By the same token, the book ended in way that opened the door to a new chapter in her life, so who knows. I really think it depends on whether Price ever gets around to writing more, honestly.

    This isn't the first time that Alex has been asked to investigate a murder that happened in Faerie but this time the potential consequences are all out war between two of the courts so the stakes have never been higher. When it appears that a member of the Shadows has murdered a Winter Court noble tensions between the two reach breaking point. Dugan comes to Alex for help as he wants to prevent a war and along with Falin the three begin a difficult investigation, it quickly becomes clear that no

    This isn't the first time that Alex has been asked to investigate a murder that happened in Faerie but this time the potential consequences are all out war between two of the courts so the stakes have never been higher. When it appears that a member of the Shadows has murdered a Winter Court noble tensions between the two reach breaking point. Dugan comes to Alex for help as he wants to prevent a war and along with Falin the three begin a difficult investigation, it quickly becomes clear that not all is as it first appears and they need to get to the bottom of the conspiracy fast if they want to prevent any further deaths.

    I've been a fan of the Alex Craft series for years now and I really enjoyed learning more about Faerie and Alex's magical planeweaving abilities in this instalment. Alex, Falin and Dugan have to visit multiple Faerie courts during their investigation and this was the first time we really get to find out more about the other rulers and how their courts are run. This story had a lot of action and there were some really great developments for certain characters that are going to have a huge knock on affect as the series continues.

    It also looks like we finally have a resolution to the love triangle (or should that be square since Dugan was also a potential suitor?). I'm not sure I love the way it's been resolved, personally I think a certain character's potential was wasted by the way things were handled in the last book which was really disappointing, but I at the same time I was fed up with the dithering so I'll be pleased if Alex has made a decision and sticks to it. I'm not convinced the best man won although his character has grown on me so hopefully I'll come round to the idea eventually.

    Completely disregarding my feelings about the romance I'm very happy with the way this series is going, I like that Alex is starting to come into her Fae heritage and learn more about her magical abilities and I really love that she's starting to make a name for herself in Faerie as someone who shouldn't be crossed lightly. I'm desperate to know more about her parents too and hope we'll see more of the different courts in the next book.

    Based on the winter themed cover I have a BAD feeling Alex will end up with Falin. Even after the events of the last book I still had hope (maybe) for her and Death. And yes, this is one of those lame UF series with still unresolved love triangle until the bitter end, maybe not even then. I don't know if the author herself was even 100% sure who she wanted Alex to end up with, or if it was a later on in the series decision, seems to me like the letter. It was very back and forth, but I always go

I don't know if the author herself was even 100% sure who she wanted Alex to end up with, or if it was a later on in the series decision, seems to me like the letter. It was very back and forth, but I always got the sense, up until the previous book, that Alex would end up with Death. But maybe it would be just good enough for Alex to finally choose either way.
