Teaser Tuesday with Grave Witch

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
This is the first book in the Alex Craft series by Kalayna Price. I really like it so far. I picked it up because it was recommended to me by Goodreads as similar to the Downside Ghosts series. The only similarity is that it has ghosts. Grave Witch is nowhere near as dark as the Downside Ghosts series, but it's fun.
Here's your teaser:
"I'm not raising a shade with foreign magic on me." I wasn't about to chance having my magic interact erratically in front of the entire courtroom, particularly after what had happened yesterday. (page 52)

    1. I finished the book and the next one already! (My Teaser Tuesdays are a little behind what I'm actually reading.) I'm on Team Death too. I don't often give five stars on Goodreads, but I did for both these books.
