Love this series. Author, and Lorelei King!!!! And it just keeps getting better and better. Love how the surprises just keep coming for the main character.
I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)
This was a great addition the the series. I have to admit that I'm growing to love this series. The first book was 4 stars for me but there was something about it that drew me in and I've now just finished book #4, reading one after the other. I'm planning to continue until I'm up to date on the series so that tells you how much I've been sucked in.
When this story begins, it's 2 months after the end of book #3 and Charley's not doing very well at getting back on her feet after the physical torture and emotional betrayal she had to deal with. She's been shut up in her house buying stuff off off TV that she'll never use until Cookie has a minor intervention and confronts Charley with the fact that she's out of money. This prompts Charley to try to collect money from the only person that still owes her for a past job, Reyes. She's refused to see him during the 2 months but figures since she did the job he asked her to she should get paid for it.
In the mean time, Charley gets a new case trying to find out who's been making a woman's life miserable for years while also getting pulled in to investigations concerning both bank robberies and arson. Charley's issues with her father escalate to the point where I would have happily slapped the man but thankfully things seemed better by the end. Things between Charley and Reyes are rough and still unresolved by the end of this book. The pull is there but there's still too much conflict and things unsaid for them to be together easily (although there is improvement). Everything gets resolved (if sadly) in the end except the arson case which looks to be carried in to the next book.
I really enjoyed this story even if it was a bit rough (emotionally) a times. I still love Charley and the other characters, not just the regular secondary characters either...the author does a great job of making the transient characters into the type of people that evoke strong emotions in the reader. Overall I thought this story was a great addition to the series and I can't wait to see what happens next. I'd recommend this story and series. :D
I've enjoyed the previous books so I was curious how this would play out.
The battle between demons is so well done and very new age.
I'm looking forward to the next book.
Love these books. They have so much going on, humor compassion, mystery and romance. Lorelei King narrates superbly. She is my favorite narrator....this series is wonderful...
Love the series, love the narrator.
The Charlie Davidson mysteries/romance/urban fantasy series is fun and engaging. I can't wait to see what Darynda Jones has in store next.
This narrator is in my top 3 for audiobooks and I've listened to well over 100 books.
I am loving this series! Can't wait to listen to the next three! Her sarcasm is awesome, the story lines are captivating and the narration is one of the best I've heard-I have listened to a lot of books! My only complaint out of all four of these so far and I am sure it will continue to spill over into the next 3 books... The character and certain experiences recapping. This is annoying. I feel it's a waste of time to re-explain who a certain character is in each book. Tough $hit if you don't know who she is referring to-don't start a series in the middle or skip around. It's THAT simple. Other than that, this series is fantastic!
As usual, Lorelei King did an amazing job as narrator! She breathes life into every character. Darynda Jones is a true storyteller. Brilliantly crafted, complexity within each of her main characters lured me in, Charley's wandering inner dialogue and smart quips kept me entertained, and the hot romance with Reyes had me on the edge of my seat. On to the next one.... I can't stop now, but I dread the impending day when I reach the last book and actually have to wait until the next is written. I don't think I have the required amount of sanity needed to wait that long...
