i adore NK in all the other books because of her feisty, no non-sense attitude... but in her own books she comes off as really insecure and it is annoying... I do understand why since she been through so much. im hoping her character like Rose will grow more confidant over time.

The main character is string and independant and not needy like previous main characters. I like her alot. Im going to skip over Amy’s story because she is too timid and weak for me and the few times she was in previous stories she annoyed me with her delicateness. But I look forward to seeing if the doctor gets a dragon.

This series is good and entertaining but the constant wonder of how Shelby is always getting into dangerous situatuons is annoying... as well as her attraction to Ramos. She says she has a great very attractive husband yet she is always creaming over Ramos and want to be in his arms... like seriously annoying. Other than that its a good read but I do roll my eyes often when she could do things a different way to get better results... stil a good read though. Looking forward to more of her misadventures

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 will Charlie come into her powers!! Im really tired of her helplessness!! She got a little stronger from the 1st book but really... when?!! She is still flighty which can be funny somtimes and other times could be very annoying. The author says that she thought of Buffy when creaung Charlie... I just dont see it... this girl cant even fist fight... she did get herself out of her latest situation herself but... 5 books in and still keep hearing about how powerful she is... but she still dont know her powers... ANNOYING!
Other than that very intriguing story with her cases.

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.

I found this series a week ago so I have been binge listening to the entire series... Charlie is starting to annoy the life out of me. Im wondering if its because Im listening to the series so close to each other. Charlie’s decision making is infuriating... Angel is supposed to be her sode kick and yet he barely helps her out... if he was helping maybe she wouldnt get in most violent situations she gets into... annoying. She cant fight... she doesnt know her power... I just need her to get better... im strongly thinking of stopping with the series... or just listen once a month... decisions

The story was good but her not knowing all of her powers is kind of annoying. She is funny but sometimes act kind of slow bus when trying to grasp what is really going on... but the mystery keeps me going so... im here for it. I do wish the story would be told from the other characters and not just Charlie... but its still intriguing

This book was very hard for me to finish. I even stopped listening to this book to start and finish another book. This story did not have much action... it goes on and on about the main character missing her family and how much it sucks to have to hide. The author explains EVERYTHING in painful detail... feels like to drag the story along. This story could have been done in 2 hours if not less.

I was anxious to hear more of “Melody’s” story... now I dont care to ever hear her story Again...

Human laws do not apply in the territory controlled by the Others - vampires, shape-shifters, and paranormal beings even more deadly. And this is a fact that humans should never, ever forget.... After her divorce, Vicki DeVine took over a rustic resort near Lake Silence - in a human town that is not human controlled. Towns like Vicki's have no distance from the Others, the dominant predators that rule most of the land and all of the water throughout the world. And when a place has no boundaries, you never really know what's out there watching you.
