Dead Witch on a Bridge by Gretchen Galway ~ a Review

by MK French

Alma had never been able to kill demons for the Protectorate, so she stayed in Silverpool, a small town that's fairly isolated. She had always been able to see and hear the fae, unlike other Witches, and one draws her to the body of her dead ex. There's an influx of attention in Silverpool now, including her infamous father, who is a magical thief, ambitious Witches, dangerous fae and a charming demon. Tensions are rising in the magical community, and Alma has to find the killer before the upcoming deaths include hers.

ebook, print (338 pages); cozy mystery
Dead Witch on a Bridge is the start of a new series, so there's a lot of world building woven into this. It's very natural and flows through the text without sounding too much like an infodump. There are a lot of great characters in this novel, even the ones that aren't very pleasant. Alma's father is a piece of work, and I was upset on her behalf because of how badly he was treated her. The Protectorate, sure that they're right and uphold all of the laws, also have a huge blind spot for those they consider beneath them. This is what allows Alma to get past those low expectations that they have of her.

Alma is a really likable protagonist, and I was rooting for her all throughout the book. There were a number of fun characters, and those that maybe weren't as much fun to read about but really gives a flavor of the outside world. I hope to see more of this world in future books within this series.
