Sexy, Funny, suspenseful
Rayes Farrow. the first time he visited charley.
I love Cookie.
Yes. There are times I just busted out laughing.
I am so glad I found this series it is truly one of my favorites. Thank you
The characters were interesting and well thought out
over the top
I loved the intrigue surrounding "the big bad"
Wife to sometimes neglected husband (due to listening to audiobooks) and mother to adult children. I am a relatively recent avid reader/listener, only really starting to read for pleasure a few years ago but now am thoroughly addicted.
I agree with a previous reviewer that I almost too didn't purchase this book. It sat in my wish list for a long time before I finally purchased it. I was very glad I did. I found Charley funny and a strong female character. Lorelei King is great and adds a lot to the story, her delivery of the humerous parts really makes the difference.
This book is a new modern take on scifi. I love it it keeps you guessing but satisfied at the same time. The main character is easy to relate to and sarcastically witty funny. I found my self laughing aloud and grinning from ear to ear and there are parts that are serious and you find your self trying to figure out who the bad guy is right along with her. I love this narrator. I found this book by looking through her because I love how well she did the Mercy Thompson series. I love these new urban fantasy books. can't wait to keep continuing the series. .
Every aspect of this book is great. The idea, the personalities, the flow and the the diversity of feelings. Also its a new take on fantasy for me.
Yes, Mercy Thompson. She Does all characters so well and i just enjoy her work all around. She is the best narrator i have come across.
pretty close. I only put it down when i absolutely had to do to normal life interruptions.
I downloaded this book probably almost one year after I had purchsed it. I could kick myself. Once I listened to this book, quickly hurried to download the rest located on audible. I rarely find books who's storyline gets better and better with each book. I LOVE Charlie.....She is sooo freakin funny......I hope this series doesn't end anytime soon. I see that the fifth book is coming out this year "2013" I will be right there to purchase it. This book is soooo worth the credit.
So many times I've looked at the cover of this audiable and thought no I don't like the cover. My sister told me later that she started reading this very good book called, 'First Grave On The Right." After I looked up the audiable book, there that cover was again. Usually if she tell me a story is good usually it is. My sister was right this is a very good series, I fell in love with this story it is different from any book I've read so far, and I've read a lot of books. Now I'm waiting on book 5 and just can't wait. There is not enough time for me to write in detail all that this series deserve, due to the fact that work is waiting for me. This is a wonderful story and if you love a very good detective love story with comedy and a good twist, this series has it all. Read this or listen to it you wil be very happy that you did. Trust Me!
Charley Davidson has problems. She is *the* Grim Reaper, and sees dead people. All the time. The problem is, dead people keep asking her to help with their unfinished business.
Oh, and then there is the mysterious "Big Bad," who protects her and freaks her out at the same time.
Darynda Jones is a skillful story teller, who manages to tell a compelling, funny, and sometimes heartbreaking mystery tale. On the other hand, Lorelei Hand, the narrator, does justice to all the characters and bring them to life in all their colorful glory.
I am now hooked on the series, and have downloaded Book 2.
Say something about yourself!
I have recommended this book to several family members and friends. I love the delightful bits of humor peppered throughout the story. I was totally engaged in the "who done it" mystery, and the supernatural elements made it just that much better.
Faith Hunter's Skinwalker series. I love a kick butt heroine with a supernatural twist.
I didn't feel like she was reading to me about the thoughts of a character. I felt like she was the character. Of course, that's what all good readers are striving for, but I felt Lorelei accomplished it.
It was one of those books that makes you put off your bedtime. However, I almost popped a blood vessel when I got to the end and saw the other book was not out yet. It does leave you hanging out there a bit in the end. Fortunately, that won't be a problem for listeners now.
Darynda Jones gave us a story full of wit and humor. The story was very entertaining; it had a love interest, mystery, and the supernatural. The reader was great, and I was given a new writer to add to my must read list. It was a credit well spent.
I found this series beacuse Lorelei King is my favorite narrator. Darynda Jones.. I'm so excited to read more! This book had me laughing from minute one. Charley Davidson is a hilarous heroine that rivals Stephanie Plum and Sookie Stackhouse. This is definitely a laugh out loud listen!
The end of the story is the middle of any other book. The author drags things along and then puts everything in the last chapter. Then, surprise, the book ends! It's just a teaser to get you to the next book. Don't waste yout time.
