Fifth Grave Past the Light: Charley Davidson, Book 5 | [Darynda Jones]

Fifth Grave Past the Light: Charley Davidson, Book 5

Charley Davidson isn’t your everyday, run-of-the-mill grim reaper. She’s more of a paranormal private eye/grim reaper extraordinaire. However, she gets sidetracked when the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, moves in next door. To further complicate matters, Reyes is her main suspect in an arson case. Charley has vowed to stay away from him until she can find out the truth... but then dead women start appearing in her apartment, one after another, each lost, confused, and terrified beyond reason.

Publisher's Summary

Never underestimate the power of a woman on a double espresso with a mocha latte chaser high. (T-shirt)

Charley Davidson isn’t your everyday, run-of-the-mill grim reaper. She’s more of a paranormal private eye/grim reaper extraordinaire. However, she gets sidetracked when the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, moves in next door. To further complicate matters, Reyes is her main suspect in an arson case. Charley has vowed to stay away from him until she can find out the truth... but then dead women start appearing in her apartment, one after another, each lost, confused, and terrified beyond reason.

When it becomes apparent that her own sister, Gemma, is the serial killer’s next target Charley has no choice but to ask for Reyes’ help. Arsonist or not, he’s the one man alive who could protect Gemma no matter who or what came at her. But he wants something in return. Charley. All of her, body and soul. And to keep her sister safe, it is a price she is willing to pay.

Charley Davidson is at it again in Fifth Grave Past the Light, the sexy, suspenseful, and laugh-out-loud funny fifth installment of the New York Times best-selling series by Darynda Jones.

    "Outstanding!!!"

    I've enjoyed all the books in this series, but this has to be my favorite! The combination of Darynda Jones & Lorelei King is unbeatable! If you haven't read this series from the beginning, you owe it to yourself to give it a go!

    "OMG!!!! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS SERIES!"
    If you could sum up Fifth Grave Past the Light in three words, what would they be?

    ABSOLUTELY AWESOME! I can't wait for the next installment!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The progression in the romance between Charlie and Reyes. And finally some answers


    What does Lorelei King bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Everything. I can't imagine this series being narrated by someone else. She does such a fantastic job of drawing you into the story and bringing the characters to life.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh and brought tears to my eyes at points.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this series to anyone looking for a great read (or listen)

    "Please grow up!!!"
    Would you try another book from Darynda Jones and/or Lorelei King?

    The story concept for this series is great... and I have stuck with it hoping the writer would grow up and drop the juvenile sarcasm... it gets very old and takes from the flow and quality of the book. The need to sound hip and in the moment is annoying too. Just write a good book... it's in there.. I'm just getting tired of weeding it out.

    I love to read but with my busy schedule I barely get a chance to. However, audiobooks allow me to "read" while I manage my crazy life.

    Story
    "And she does it again, folks"


    "These are fists of fury. They will get close. You'll feel the air as they swoosh by you. You'll stand in awe of their speed and accuracy, but if you move, you lose. You still up for this? Speak now or forever hold your peace."

    -Charlie Davidson, Fifth Grave Past the Light

    The fifth installment in this sensational series, Darynda works her magic to create the caffeine-filled and ADD-riddled life of Charlie Davidson. The series takes place where the fourth book leaves off and readers can expect the signature Charlie Davidson's world-wind of what-the-heck-have-you-gotten-yourself-into situations, humorous dialogues, and- be still my heart- Reyes Alexander Farrow.

    Fans of this series will absolutely adore this book with Charlie being Charlie, the drool-worthy Reyes being even more alluring and irresistible (is that even possible?), and the rock solid supporting cast all gather to make this book a huge hit. Not to mention the fact that we get more insight as to Charlie and Reyes' role in the grand scheme of things and a sweet (and freaking HOT) progression in their relationship. My only regret in reading this book is that I devoured it too quickly. Like Paula Dean with a pound of butter, I was over zealous and lacked self-control. I think I see a run of the entire series back-to-back in the near future.


    Note: the beginning quote was taken from a scene that had me laughing so hard I cried and nearly pissed my pants. Don't you just love stories that have that kind of power?

    Narration
    Narrator: Lorelei King
    Performance: 5/5
    As always, King nails it! Depicting Charlie's voice spot on, delivering her witty humor with perfect inflection and timing. King also does a fantastic job with the other characters, changing her voice enough to add distinction to the various characters while keeping it consistent for the recurring cast members throughout the series. I love that King has narrated all of the series thus far. Please don't ever change it!

    "Love this series!"

    First of all, Lorelei King IS Charley! She is absolutely the perfect narrator for this character. Second of all, this series is so fun, so exciting and I hope, hope the next book will be out soon!
    And third of all, if anyone doesn't like the character of Reyes, they must be, I don't know, from some other dimension?

    "Best book in the series so far!"

    Oh my God! I LOVE this series. Charlie is growing in so many ways, but doesn't become bitter or shut down with all of the bad stuff happening to her.
    You can also see her and Reyes' relationship blossom into something more than lust.
