GRAVE DANCE Cover and Blurb

As promised last week, may I present for your entertainment the official cover copy (back cover blurb) for GRAVE DANCE:


Whoever said dead men tell no tales obviously never met Alex Craft.

After a month spent recovering from a vicious fight with a sorcerer, grave witch Alex Craft is ready to get back to solving murders by raising the dead. With her love life in turmoil thanks to the disappearance of Fae Investigation Bureau agent Falin Andrews and a shocking “L” word confession from Death himself, Alex is eager for the distractions of work. But her new case turns out to be a deadly challenge.

The police hire Alex to consult on a particularly strange investigation in the nature preserve south of Nekros City. The strange part: There are no corpses, only fragments of them. A serial killer is potentially on the loose, and Alex has no way to raise a shade without a body, so she’ll have to rely on the magic of others to find leads. But as she begins investigating, a creature born of the darkest magic comes after her. Someone very powerful wants to make sure the only thing she finds is a dead end—her own.





Have a great day, everyone!

Sounds great! And have I mentioned how much I love your covers? I especially love the green in GRAVE WITCH.

I can't wait for this book! The cover is beautiful too! GRAVE WITCH was one of my favorite reads of 2010 I'm sure GRAVE DANCE will be one of my favs for 2011!

I loved Grave Witch. Thought it was the best urban fantasy I read all year. Really looking forward to the next one! Alex kicks @$$!

Thanks everyone! I'm glad people are excited. I recently turned it line edits, so aside from copy edits, my part is done. Now is when I get really anxious about the release, and it's still months away. ^_^

Greeeeeen. Green is my favorite color, in fact my last phone the only reason I got it was because it was green. But I really like this colver, it's even better than Grave Witch.

I just finished reading Grave Witch, and I LOVED it. Honestly one of the best books I have ever read. Love the way you write. Very excited for the next installment. Since its months away though I guess I am going to have to look into some of your other books. ;D Do you know yet if you are going to stop at two, or keep the series going?? I know, the 2nd book isn't even out yet and I'm asking for more :) It's just that good!

Kalayna Price said...

Thanks so much Hannah! So far Roc has contracted 3 books in the Alex Craft series, but I'm hoping they will buy more so I can continue with the story. Thanks again. I'm glad you enjoyed it!

Elf said...

YES! I can't wait! OH--there's going to be a THIRD book too? Hot damn! I tell ya, I have to spam all Creation with pimpage for your books; they are AMAZING. I loved gumshoe detective novels before, but when the detective is a six-nothing asskicking witch getting in over her head with Fae? Well you just found yourself a devoted fan, madame. XD

Kalayna Price said...

Aww, thanks Elf! You've made my day.

I picked Grave Witch up on a whim and I have to say that it was the most fantastic read I have had in quite a while. And I think I'm in love with Death. You made a world where I wish I was a witch.

Thanks so much, Miranda!
