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.

5 stars is i love and i will read agani and again. 1 is i hate and i never want to hear about it ever again. YES = :))) - NO= :'(
What can i say other than how funny and great this book was. From the beginning laughter was included and it was loud, specially remember this review when you hear the word salut in the beginning of the book, was at the office and i couldn't stop myself laughing.
We are at book 5 and the number of characters is increasing and you get to know few new ones here, and some of them are unique.
Of course narration was great. Lorelei King is a great narrator and one of my favorites.
Darynda Jones you have done a wonderful job here, and don't make us wait for he next Charley Davidson book.
I have been happily married for 17 years, I have 3 children (12, 14, & 16), and 2 dogs. I am currently working on a 2nd degree. Life is chaotic and stressful, but I wouldn't change it. I am blessed and enjoying my life.
Ms. Jones, it was an amazing sequel! Charlie makes you want to sit her in time-out just to get a breather. The plot and sub-plots where intricate and involved. Not a dull moment anywhere. I like how you have the romance between Charlie and Reyes, but you don't allow it to consume the entire book. I TOTALLY LOVED THE ENDING!!!!! Can't wait for the next addition to the series. This book totally left me with a big grin on my face :D!
Ms. King, you were awesome as usual!
Yep, it was worth my credit. I would have loved for it to be longer,. But, I am one of those guest who likes to stay a little too long, if I am having a good time! lol!
Say something about yourself!
Darynda Jones does it again. This series keeps getting better and i think the book speaks for itself.
"reading junkie" I read or listen to almost anything except for non-fiction or history, unless I find it interesting.
I'm at a lost. I thought the last line of the 4th book was the best ever but Ms. Jones may have topped herself. This series is exceptional. Each one is more entertaining than the last. This one is impassioned from the start. Mystery, action and paranormal all wrapped up with appealing characters.
If you're already a fan - then you know what you're gonna get..... an amazing, awesome and addictive listen that'll have you laughing out loud one minute and then on the edge of your seat the next. However, if you haven't heard of this series before then ..... JUST WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? it takes the saying "I see dead people" to a whole new level so start at book 1, sit back and enjoy.
Quirky humour, funny on-liners, hot sexual chemistry, new powers, more characters, action, adventure, mystery, surprises, plenty of paranormal activity and, of course, the oh sooo drool worthy and delicious Reyes (damn I'm jealous) makes this book a PNR lovers dream listen.
So what do you say Darynda - how about I agree to come round and be your own personal 'do absolutely everything' P.A. for a month or two then would that get Sixth Grave to your fans any quicker?
Worth a credit? Shhhhhhh (don't tell Audible) but I'd spend 2, 3 or even 4 credits on each listen they're that good - so that's not just a YES but it's a fling your arms out and scream it from the rooftops HALLELUJAH, THANK YOU DARYNDA YES.
I can't say enough how much I love this series. Just start at book one and keep listening you will not be disappointed. This series just keeps getting better. Charley learns more about herself and Reyes in every book and I am excited to see where things will go from here. Daryanda Jones is the best with witty, sexy and spunky. Lorelei King is also one of the best narrators and she does this series so well. This pair is a winner. I just wish these books would come faster.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
Another hit with Charlie Davidson. Crazy, ADD and plain good times. Since this is the fifth book in the series you know what I'm talking about. Otherwise start with book 1, you won't regret it. So funny in parts almost peed my pants. Time flew by at work. Defiantly will be continuing on with this series. Please write faster Darynda Jones. And as usual Lorelei King rocks with her narration.
Fun, Hilarious, Hot!
There are too many to pinpoint just one.
I love Lorelei King. Her timing is impeccable and she has a marvelous way of bringing the characters to life.
What I love about this series is that it is not one dimensional. Ms. Jones has a knack for being able to bring out many emotions.
Next one please. And hurry!
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!
Just so I didn't forget anything, I finished listening to the first 4 books again while I was on vacation last week. Since I've been on pins and needles waiting for the latest book, I downloaded it as soon as I woke up at 5:00 am this morning, listened to it off and on at work today and just now (8:00 PM) finished it. The only complaint is that the books are so short. Darynda Jones packs a whole lot of story in such a short book but I want more and longer. Why such fanaticism from a grown woman? It's because I just love Charley Davidson. What a great female character, she's so funny, warm, and smart. I think she just the kind of woman who should get the most sexy, beautiful, reformed bad boy of the underworld. There is so much going on, so many plot twists and turns to keep us on the edge of our seats. But, underneath all the action, Reyes is the main focus of this book. We learn more about him as a man than as a supernatural being, although more is revealed about that as well. His relationship with Charley grows deeper and we get to see them more as a couple, lots of fun, very sexy!! This is hands down, my favorite series out there, and I can't wait until the next book. And how does Lorelei King do it?? She reads all the characters so well, each with their own sound and personality brought to life. And, she does sexy Reyes so well, I forget it's a woman reading the part, or...I just try not to ponder that too closely. :o) Thank you both, Darynda and Lorelei, another purrrfect installment. Just don't make me wait too long for the next book! Did I mention cliff hanger??
