Publisher's Summary

Third in the award-winning paranormal series that’s “hilarious and heartfelt, sexy and surprising.” (J.R. Ward)

Paranormal private eye. Grim reaper extraordinaire. Whatever. Charley Davidson is back in Darynda Jones' Third Grave Dead Ahead! And she’s drinking copious amounts of caffeine to stay awake because, every time she closes her eyes, she sees him: Reyes Farrow, the parthuman, part-supermodel son of Satan. Yes, she did imprison him for all eternity, but come on. How is she supposed to solve a missing persons case, deal with an ego-driven doctor, calm her curmudgeonly dad, and take on a motorcycle gang hellbent on murder when the devil’s son just won’t give up?

    "Still going strong...."
    What did you love best about Third Grave Dead Ahead?

    We get to really feel more in this book. The aurthor allows us to connect with some of her characters on an emotional level.


    What other book might you compare Third Grave Dead Ahead to and why?

    This whole series I have been thinking the writing style is similar to Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson series. She also writes about a strong female with a sense of whit in her character.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The most memorable is the scene in which Charlie is in the hospital and finds out that her PI practice has been suspended and Garrett has died. I think I was just as shocked at all that was happening as Charlie was.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.

    "HooRay!!!"

    I love the writings of Darynda Jones and I was so happy to see this one come out. I am enjoying the series and this one did not let me down.

    Jones and King are the perfect combination for a fun, interesting, and attention grabbing read.

    "I think this book is a set up for next few books"

    I was a bit upset with the ending on this one, but I know there will be others to follow. There were several story lines going on at once here, which I found made it a bit interesting. I think people are complaining mostly because they were not happy with the interaction of Reyes and Charlie. Well Charlie is being told "The War is Coming" and she better lean what she is capable of. Seems it's taking her a while. And Reyes used her as bate, which I can understand got her panties in a bunch, however bottom line was he did save her. I think those who complained about this book, were just expecting more. Ms Jones is creating a series here, and I guess that means at least 5 to 7 books. (or more) It seems lately most authors are writing series, and not just one book. With characters like Sookie Stackhouse, and John Taylor "The Night Side Series" or Harry Dresden "The Dresden files". I think that Darynda Jones is just getting her groove on and by the time we see her next few books they will be even better. I remember starting Jim Butcher's :"Harry Dresden series" the first book was good and they only got better, I was hooked. I believe that the same will show with Ms Jones. She has amazing twists and turns in her story lines and I think there will be many more surprises. The first two books were excellent, and this one was good as well, maybe not to every ones taste but, my feeling are let's see what's in store for the next book.

    "Not time well spendt"
    Would you try another book from Darynda Jones and/or Lorelei King?

    No


    Has Third Grave Dead Ahead turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes


    How could the performance have been better?

    Hard to give a good performance with weak writing


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    I picked this book because it was promoted as humorous. The storyline is slow and does not even rate a chuckle. The writing is childish and unimaginative.

    "Another Home Run!"

    Love this series and have been waiting for the third book forever, it seems. This is a series I can listen to over and over as I love the characters. The different scenario of The Grim Reaper is great and very innovative. The narrator is perfect for this series and I also love her in the many other audio books she has narrated. She is a class act.
    I did notice, in this book, that there were several things said that sounded repetitive, but overall, I was not disappointed in this third installment.
    WHEN IS NUMBER FOUR??

    "I am sooooo sorry it ended!"

    I have to wait until Oct before the next book comes out!!! I do not want to wait. I listened to all 3 books over the last 3 days. I didn't want it to end :( I really really liked this author and the narrator. One of the best series that I have listened to.

    "A Grim Reaper who names her breasts"

    I have listened to the previous books in the series and had liked the main Character in the past but am finding her to be less and less likeable. I can't put my finger on what it is. Naming her boobs "Danger" and "Will Robinson" is just moronic. Not funny at all. There were other things she was naming along the way which had the same effect. Made her sound like a dumb girl. I thought the point of these books was that she was supposed to be a sort of Kick butt female sleuth character. She seems to end up being injured or involved in things due to her stupidity more than anything. And the abrupt end was extremely unsatisfying. It felt like the writer just gave up and didn't bother to conclude anything. Obviously holding out for the next book in the series. I'm getting very tired of being strung along by Authors so they can sell more and more books. Tell me a good story. One that I can read and is concluded within the novel. If you wrote a series of novels that were better stand alone books, I wouldn't feel so annoyed, I think.

    On the up side, the narrator was very good. As she has been in anything I've heard her read. Very talented lady.

    Not sure I'll read the next book in the series. I feel like I'm reading schlock written to pay the bills instead of to entertain the reader. It's very disheartening.

    "Lorelei King makes this a great listen!"
    Where does Third Grave Dead Ahead rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This series is not bad, although not my favorite for this type of book. The storyline is pretty good, and I love Charley's kick-ass attitude, but the constant swooning over Reyes wears a little thin. A little too much romance for my tastes.


    What about Lorelei King’s performance did you like?

    Lorelei also narrates Kyra Davis's Sophie Katz books, and they ARE my absolute faves! I am an avid Audbile listener and few narrators can match Lorelei's range of voices and compelling storytelling. I will listen to a book just because she narrates it, and that's a first!

    "Too Much Rayas"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    No: Too much romance


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Too warm and literally fuzzy


    Have you listened to any of Lorelei King’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Excellent


    Any additional comments?

    The reason the first story was so compelling was because of the communication between Charlie and the spirits of the dead. There was humor and suspense as they tried to solve their own murders in the first book. In the third of the series, there was little of that. I hoped, thoroughout the the story, to hear it, but there was little of that type of communication, save that of a silent spirit and one in the basement of an insane asylum. I was so disappointed; there was just Rayas. So Dorynda, I would say LESS ROMANCE AND MORE COMMUNING WITH THE SPIRITS in your next book!
