Grave Dance: An Alex Craft NovelGrave Dance
This is one of the best Follow-ups I've read in awhile. The first one was good, but not very memorable IMO. The 2nd may be one of Price's best books to date.

The book has a lot going on, but it still flowed smoothly and everything seemed to tie-up well by the end.  About a month has passed since the events in the last book. The book starts off similar to the last, with Alex raising the dead & working with the PD to unravel a paranormal murder mystery. With her love life in turmoil, Alex is eager for the distractions of work. But when her new case forces her to overuse her magic, it might be the last mystery the Grave Witch ever gets to solve. About a quarter of the way through, the plot expands to the interesting world of Faerie and the sexy FIB agent-Falin, and of course the hot enigma-Death.

I couldn't help but get carried away with this Fantasy heavy plot. Lots of different genres converge within this series, which could have easily become muddled with too many subplots. Fortunately, Price does a superb job of keeping everything straight and moving along until the very end. Excellent World-Building & riveting plots, I cannot wait to read the next book.
