I love the stories of light supernatural tales with some romance, and giggles.
The whole premis is outstanding. Narration is the best, funny, her charicature of a reaper is new and refreshing.
When she discovers more of her powers, and how much more can be possible.
Of course the ending
The whole book, infact, the whole series!
The romance between Charlie and Reyes heats up even more in this latest installment in the Charlie Davidson series. This time, Charlie wakes to find not just one dead woman in her apartment, but a plethora of incorporeal beings, none of who are ready to cross quite yet. Reyes is living down the hall, leading to more fun, naked time. Garrett Swopes, the PI who has literally been to hell and back, returns with some new information on Satan and Reyes' real mission on Earth.
While Charlie and UB search for the serial killer responsible for all of the dead women in Charlie's apartment, Charlie continues her arson investigation from the last book on the side. Reyes has started a new job, which drastically increases the female patronage of Calamities. And Gemma gets a love interest.
Once again, Lorelei King does a fantastic job with the narration. Definitely my favorite book in the series thus far!
Charlie Davidson....shes great she has a witty since of humor, scatter brained, opinionated and I love her. This series is a must read the story is great and the narrator is right on with the jokes and sarcasm. You cannot be bored with this book I recommend this book to everyone who likes a good story with funny lines and a strong female lead.
Funny, clever & hot!
Care and feeding of stray vampires- Molly Harper. Both are quick witted authors, my favorites!
Yes and she's wonderfully perfect! She carries the perfect tone to really bring home the authors humor.
Yes, but I'm not one to leak spoilers.
Great series, so glad there will be more. I will read anything by this author, she's great.
I would definitely recommend this book. As with all Darynda Jones, Charlie Davidson series, her books are full of humor and sarcasm. They are just a joy to listen too.
If I have said it a hundred times! The narrator makes all the difference in the world when it comes to listening to a book. Lorelie King hits the nail on the head with her narration of this series. She brings the characters to life.
I LOVE this series. Charley Davidson is fantastic, love the banter between characters, it's so funny but at the same time serious. I have been waiting for this book to come out and after listening to it I'm going to go crazy waiting for the next one to come out. If you like Charlene Harris or Janet Evanovich, you will love this series. Read, listen enjoy!
Freezing in Idaho
I love this quirky, original, and entertaining series. The character's lives go on, sometimes as predicted, but always with an unexpected twist. Darynda Jones meets my expectations with every book without becoming trite. Can we clone her?
And Ms King is a very appropriate and capable narrator. With a good narrator, I can easily forget her contribution as narrator and how it influences whether I or not I can become absorbed in the story. Ms King hits the mark in everything I've heard her perform. She's a top tier narrator.
That this book is getting us closer to answers about Charley's abilities.
That Charley's relationship with the son of satan has moved to the next level. No more dancing around their attraction.
There is not a narrator I love to listen to more than Lorelei. Most of the books in my library were chosen because Lorelei was the narrator. She is the reason I found the Charley Davidson series. She brings personality to the characters
Yes, I would love to listen to this book in one sitting. Then I would be longing for the next book, which is where I am now. I can't with unitl the "6th Grave" comes out.
Darynda Jones reminds me of Charlaine Harris maybe Jeaniene Frost as well always able to write an absorbing story with great character base. Even though there is some really bad stuff happening there is alway a laugh out loud moment. (several actually) I finished this in one day it was that good.
There has been growth in Charlie and Reyes. Even though they are still coming to terms with who they are. These stories should be read in order from the first book in the series because information from previous books are important to the next one
I have listened to Lorelei King narrate Patricia Briggs "Mercy Thompson" series. (which she does just as fantastic as this one. Great with emotions, voices and humor.
I can't wait for the next book in this series. Daerynda Jones really knows how to make mystery/paranormal/dark humor work.
"Grrrrr! Now this could be for the growl or groan I made when I finished 5th Grave Past the Light and have to wait for the next book, (I'm guessing a year) or this grr could stand for the GRRREAT! that Tony the Tiger makes. I loved this book! 5th Grave met and exceeded all of my expectations. It answered questions, made me ask more questions and twisted me all up on the inside. Each book in this series dragged me more into this world and grips me harder and harder. Daryndra Jones has created some great characters and they all impact me, good and bad. From the first time I seen the cover of First Grave on the Right posted and recommended by JR Ward on her website (The White cover with the skull sandals and scythe). I thought hmm this looks interesting. When I read the blurb, a chick named Charely Davidson who happens to be the Grim Reaper, I was sold. I've never been disappointed. I was hooked with the first few chapters. With laughter or heartbreak I've loved this series completely and I recommend to everyone who will listen. I will admit my stomach clenched over the "post-it" note on Charelys door in chapter 9, and my co-works think I'm nuts. I had a few bust out loud with laughter moments today and The GPS app with OZZY as the Voice... All I can say is "Holy Crow! I want that!" The audio book is an awesome way to get into this series. Lorelei King is a great narrator and she does an excellent job with this series.
