Publisher's Summary

“Hell is empty and all the devils are here.” (William Shakespeare)

Violet Parker knows better than to play with devils. They always cheat, especially when lives are at stake. Deadwood’s charming, troublemaking, and soul-sucking devils are no different, and they’re biting at her heels. 

But the clock is ticking and Violet has no choice - she must risk her life to save her treasured Aunt Zoe. With any luck, she might be able to trick the devils and beat the old terrors at their own game. If not, Deadwood could end up short one Executioner. 

“Executioners don’t duck, they swing.” (Violet Parker)

Fabulous spooky world

Charles has imagined an unusual, detailed world of spooky monsters and crazy humans in Deadwood. The connecting story plots make me want a notebook, but the audio version keeps me on track Shaffer does an AMAZING jobs with the multiple characters such that I can identify them from her voice alone. I love all the mysteries and family history and the family that has supper each night at Zoe’s.

The only thing I don’t like is Violet. Seriously, she should be hitting the gym with the kids and Doc, being armed to the teeth every where she goes and have her hunting gear in a pack by her side after all the attempts on her life! I understand her fear but really, she has a big group of family and friends to protect, yet time and again she has to find a weapon to defend herself because she isn’t prepared. Her whining has diminished somewhat in this book, but the standing around and questioning to deflect while monsters come to destroy her and her friends is getting really old. Act your age and parental responsibilities, Violet!

Loved Devil Days in Deadwood

I love all of Ann Charles’ books. This was no exception. It has paranormal, monsters, good guys, bad guys, romance, hilarious moments mixed with nail biting moments and quirky characters that have become family. It’s been days and still every time I think of Cornelius and the scarecrow I laugh out loud.

Caroline Shaffer does a great job narrating as always!

More than credit worthy. It’s a don’t miss.

Oversexed In Deadwood

Not a bad concept and I’ve gone through several of the books but I’ve reached the point where I have to fast forward every time a Violet/Doc sexcapade comes up. The author has some serious issues with this or just needs filler and this is the simplest (i.e. laziest) way to do it. The book would be about 2/3 as long if you took out their hypersexed interludes. They can’t even have a normal conversation without Violets libido ridden fantasies playing out.

overall I liked this series

I enjoyed this series. the story was good I liked the characters. The female lead got annoying at times. Her insecurity and mistrusting attitude, and her refusal to accept what she was got very aggravating. Up until about book 6 I wanted to reach threw the pages and slap her.

overall a fun read

I have enjoyed this series so far particularly since I don't love Violet the protagonist. In the first book she was a whiny oversensitive bundle of insecurities and lies and I nearly didn't finish but as the series progressed she has shown signs of growing up...some . The thing that caused me to keep going and genuinely enjoy the series were the other characters and their interactions with each other and the crazy situations that they got into. the overall series is worth reading

Please tell Ms Charles A Vegan Cat Will DIE

Love the books! She has some terrific series that are all tied together. There's this one, the cousins in Jackrabbit Junction, one in the 1800s with another slayer who's also an undertaker, and one with Violet's brother in Mexico; every book is Fantastic!
BUT, if her daughter's cat was really vegan...it would eventually die (and not from old age). Most human vegans can get enough protein from plants --even dogs can (although I don't think they would be too happy about it). A cat could maybe get enough plain, generic protein, but there is an amino acid named Taurine that can ONLY come from an animal source and Cats Need It -- no substitutes will suffice for any type of feline. My grandson thought they could get it in a powdered form, and they can -- BUT THE POWDER WOULD BE MADE FROM ANIMALS. They are True Carnivores (some say the feline family are the only true terrestrial carnivores). Someone could think Violet's vegan cat would be totally cool and just do it. Please Ms Charles, toss in a joke about taking the cat to the vet and "Oh Guess What?" or something like that.
Yes, it is an individual's responsibility to get reliable information on which to base their pet care, but that doesn't mean a lot to a dead cat.
Please.

ignore the negative reviews!

I have to say, I wasn't crazy about the first book, at first! But Readers! this is a 12 part series! And I have to say, I WILL go back and listen to them all again! The characters are fantastic, yes..even Violet! The storyline is fun and a great book to listen to while driving or working! I got to the point that I was listening to right about a book a day! There are very interesting and loveable characters in this listen! I found myself wishing that these were my family and friends! someone PLEASE tell me there is going to be a next book!
