Sixth Grave on the Edge: Charley Davidson, Book 6 | [Darynda Jones]

Sixth Grave on the Edge: Charley Davidson, Book 6

Most girls might think twice before getting engaged to someone like Reyes Farrow - but Charley Davidson is not most girls. She’s a paranormal private eye and grim-reaper-in-training who’s known to be a bit of a hell-raiser, especially after a few shots of caffeine. Her beloved Reyes may be the only begotten son of evil, but he’s dark and sultry and deeply sexy and everything Charley could hope for. Really. But when the FBI file on Reyes’ childhood happens to land into her lap, she can’t help herself: She opens it...and then the real fun begins.

Publisher's Summary

Sometimes I wrestle my demons. Sometimes we just snuggle. (Bumper Sticker)

Most girls might think twice before getting engaged to someone like Reyes Farrow - but Charley Davidson is not most girls. She’s a paranormal private eye and grim-reaper-in-training who’s known to be a bit of a hell-raiser, especially after a few shots of caffeine. Her beloved Reyes may be the only begotten son of evil, but he’s dark and sultry and deeply sexy and everything Charley could hope for. Really. But when the FBI file on Reyes’ childhood happens to land into her lap, she can’t help herself: She opens it...and then the real fun begins. First, Charley finds a naked corpse riding shotgun in her car. Then, a man loses his soul in a card game. Throw in a deaf boy who sees dead people, a woman running from mobsters, and a very suspicious Reyes, and things can’t get any worse for Charley. Unless, of course, the 12 Beasts of Hell are unleashed.…

    "This book could change EVERYTHING!"

    I held off on the fifth book for the sole purpose of evading the cliffhanger, yet here I am experiencing exactly what I wanted to avoid—a horrible hangover that’s going to last five months. Ok, so I know it’s bad form to start a review off by talking about the ending, but holy geez how can I not? I mean… the series just completely changed directions because of one revelation! I always feel like Darynda Jones leaves readers with more questions than answers, and that’s the case yet again with SIXTH GRAVE ON THE EDGE. As usual, this installment is packed with so many plot threads that trying to figure out how Lorelei King managed to cover them all in under 10 hours just might make your head explode.

    It’s been a while since I’ve mentioned the entertaining quotes this author uses at the beginning of each chapter, so it’s definitely worth repeating. Jones also takes it a step further in this installment with the addition of hashtags which I LOVED! Then there were the countless references to Charley’s coffee addiction that always make me feel like we’re sisters-from-another-mother. All of the spork jokes cracked me up too! The author also delves deeper into the powers of the reaper, and if you thought Davidson was badass before, just wait until you learn what other tricks she has up her sleeve. And then, there’s the mystery surrounding the prophesies, the daughter of light, and the twelve. Yes, we get some answers, but mostly it’s just more questions.

    Charley’s got her hands full once again in this installment with a naked dead man riding shotgun in Misery, her on-going child abduction case, Reyes’ looming question, and then there’s The Dealer. Ooh, and of course let’s not forget that Angel’s true past comes to light, there’s news on the Mr. Wong front, and in the midst of all this chaos Charley is also playing matchmaker to Cookie and Ubie. Needless to say, life as the Grim Reaper is never dull! But, leave it to Reyes Farrow to totally eclipse the entire action packed story line with his hot self. I love how far his and Davidson’s relationship has come through the course of this series, and I think the ending of this book will be a step in the right direction for them, even though the world might not agree.

    When it comes to audiobooks I consider myself somewhat of a slow listener, but I had no problems finishing SIXTH GRAVE ON THE EDGE in a day thanks to Lorelei King’s exquisite narration. Her pitch is perfectly suited for Jones’ writing style, and her voice couldn’t be any more CHARLEY DAVIDSON if she tried. You can tell that she’s having a blast while in the studio recording these, and that really comes through in her performances. It doesn’t matter whether it’s an action or sex scene; King always gives it her all which is why pre-ordering this audiobook was a no-brainer.

    SIXTH GRAVE ON THE EDGE ends with a big surprise that will leave you reeling in the possibilities. I’m telling you, this could change EVERYTHING! #holyshit

    "Fantastic As Always!! Funny Too!!!"

    WOW!!! This addition was so good and so funny!!! I have truly enjoyed this book all the way through... I laughed so hard during this book and almost cried at other parts. It was and emotional ride.

    So much character development in this book, and i guess not a single character was spared here... So many things happened, so many changes.

    You would never guess how it will end here, but its ending was really good... and I can't wait to get the next book!!! AMAZING!!!!!

    Narration is good as always... Really big fan of Lorelei King

    "One of My Favorite Series!!! 6 STARS all around!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes Yes Yes! But sadly not many of my friends that are avid readers as I am are very interested in paranormal books. But I have told them this is the series to start.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This is a hard one. I think it's Cookie in most of them, definitely in this one because sh just cracks me up with everything that comes out of her mouth.


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

    Her delivery is spot on. Her voices are perfect. She's perfect.


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

    I laughed throughout this entire book. I alway do with this series.


    Any additional comments?

    worth the credit. I listened to this one straight through.

    What made the experience of listening to Sixth Grave on the Edge the most enjoyable?

    Lorelei King is amazing and really makes the characters come alive. I have listened to everything she has read. Also Darynda Jones just has a gift for writing a Great story and making you laugh.

    All the characters of course.


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

    Story
    "What a Small World!"

    Charley's FBI contact has spent nearly her entire career trying to solve her mentor's "Moby Dick" case. It was a baby abduction and she gives the file to Charley "I talk to dead people," in the hopes Charley can help solve it. When Charley opens the file, she opens up a big old can of "What the H-E-Double Hockey Sticks." I don't want to spoil any surprises but a clue is it will make my headline make sense.

    The narration is tight and it's a great story

    "I really wanted to like this one. . ."

    I've been on the fence about this series since the beginning and the thing that keeps me coming back is Lorelei King. She's a wonderful narrator and I cannot say enough good things about her. There are a lot of cliffhangers in this book. There is nothing wrong with well written cliffhangers, but the sub plot with her father didn't feel like a cliffhanger as much as it felt like something that was going to go somewhere and then ended up getting edited out. I'm guessing there will be more about him in the next book? Charley's inner monologues also drive me nuts. They drive me nuts because in some of them she sounds smart and on the ball, while in others she sounds like an absolute idiot. I'm on the fence about the next one. I'm just not sure.

    "You SO have to read this book!!!"
    Would you listen to Sixth Grave on the Edge again? Why?

    Yes. I have listened to the whole series more than once. It is so entertaining and the characters are so fun! Charlie Davidson is my hero. Think I'm in love with Reyes with Swopes as the runner up. Angel is a typical teen, Artamis is fun, Cookie works so well with Charlie, and the list goes on!


    What other book might you compare Sixth Grave on the Edge to and why?

    I can't....never read anything like this series. This is a contemporary, fantasy, romance, mystery, comedy and more.


    What about Lorelei King’s performance did you like?

    I FEEL BAD FOR PEOPLE WHO READ THE BOOK VERSION BECAUSE LORELEI KING BRINGS EVERYTHING TO LIFE! Seriously, Charlie's character would not be as endearing and fun if you don't have the full inflection of her quirky thoughts and sarcasm.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    "I'm in love with the son of the devil and don't have any regrets...he'll do the right thing...eventually. Being with him may destroy the universe, or give satan a free pass to this world, but I totally got this."


    Any additional comments?

    If you have not read this series, you need to-from 1st Grave on the Right all the way through to this one. The books are fun and VERY entertaining, upbeat and sarcastic, but the subject matter makes for a great mystery aspect. The main character is a strong female who is such a good person, but she is embroiled in the most dangerous people/creatures. I can't say enough about this series. TOTALLY WORTH IT !!

    "It just keeps getting better."

    Once again Darynda Jones and Lorelei King are a power house duo. The story continues on from the 5th book bringing back the favorites but introducing new characters. I hope this series never ends. I always love the way Charlie Davidson blends her personal story with her investigations. I always look forward to the beginning to each chapter to hear the latest bumper sticker or T-shirt. I would totally wear theses t-shirts. DJ is my all time favorite writer. Her stories never get old or played out. Her style of story line of the life of a grim reaper is original and the humor is just top notch. Cant wait for the next book. For now I think I am going to start the series over and enjoy it again…..and place an order for some t-shirts on her web site.
