I try to match the books up a little each week to give them both a fair chance at being read. This is going to be another hard week for me to chose. I’ve read the first book in both of these series and loved them. They are both unique. They are both gritty writers. They are both urban fantasy, which I adore.
Here are the blurbs:
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.
Blood on the Bayou ~
What do you think? Don’t they sound great! But does one sound better than the other? What are you reading?
Stop by Friday to find out which one I picked.
