The Grave Report by R.R. Virdi
This is a series still in its infancy with only three books out, but it’s definitely one worth picking up. The main character, Vincent Graves, is a man of many faces…literally. He’s a soul who inhabits the bodies of those recently killed by the supernatural and solves their murders. Every book so far has had a killer opening, but the third book, Grave Dealings, was phenomenal. I laughed and cried throughout the book because of how well it manages to hit that emotional resonance. Sometimes, Graves’ snark gets to be a bit much, but he’s always balanced out by his sidekicks.
Why this series?
Aside from the gut punch to the feels and the stellar in media res openings, this really is a series with heart and soul, pun intended. It’s also a series I feel comfortable letting my 10-year-old read.* These books stay with you. While there are lots of fluffy, feel good urban fantasy books out there, this series dares to dig deeper and ask you to consider the good, the bad, and all the ugly about being human.
