The first time I raised a shade for profit, my client fainted. Since then, I've tried to better prepare clients for their encounter with the dead.Friday 56:
It doesn't always work.
A sharp sob cut across the phone. Shit. I hadn't meant it as such, but I'd just broached the fact that the baby might not make it to the point of being a consideration. Foot meet mouth. Geez, I was bad at this.Grave Visions by Kalayna Price. I began this series years ago but there has been quite a gap since the previous book. Here is the description from Amazon:
The USA Today bestselling author of Grave Memory and Grave Dance returns with her bewitching heroine Alex Craft in a new novel of twisting urban fantasy where the secrets of the dead can wreak havoc on the living.
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 she has her own secrets. She’s not human—and her newly discovered heritage is causing havoc for her both in the human realm and in Faerie.
Fae can’t survive without a tie to Faerie, and now that Alex’s true nature has awoken, she’s no exception. She must align herself to a court and soon. To retain as much freedom as possible, she makes a deal to track the source of a new glamour-infused street drug which causes hallucinations that kill—and not just the user. Her investigation entangles Alex in a conflict brewing in Faerie, and she must find answers before she’s dragged so deep that she loses not only her freedom, but her life.
