"Twelve. Twelve of the deadliest beasts ever forged in the fires of hell have escaped onto our plane, and they want nothing more than to rip out the jugular of Charley Davidson and serve her lifeless, mangled body to Satan for dinner. So there's that. But Charley has more on her plate than a mob of testy hellhounds. For one thing, her father has disappeared, and the more she retraces his last steps, the more she learns he was conducting an investigation of his own, one that has Charley questioning everything she's ever known about him. Add to that an ex-BFF who is haunting her night and day, a rash of suicides that has authorities baffled, and a drop-dead sexy fiance who has attracted the attentions of a local celebrity, and Charley is not having the best week of her life. But all of that combined barely scratches the surface of her problems. Recent developments--and a few distressing prophesies--have forced her to become a responsible adult. Exactly the kind of adult she's never aspired to be. To conquer such a monumental task, she's decided to start small. Really small. She gets a pet. But how can she save the world against the forces of evil when she can't even keep a goldfish alive? A tad north of hell, a hop, skip, and a jump past the realm of eternity, is a little place called Earth, and Charley Davidson, grim reaper extraordinaire, is determined to do everything in her power to protect it. We're doomed. "--… (mere)

Good sick day reading. Nobody was too painfully stupid, and the whole prophecy thing is heating up nicely. ( )

Listened to audio narrated really well by Lorelei King. I feel a bit repetitive but King does an outstanding job narrating this series. The pacing, tone and varied portrayals is spot on.

This book picks up right after 'Sixth Grave on the Edge.' Solving murders, trying to crack the prophecy, figure out what her father is up to and find him and find the missing bodies from their graves, drives this book a million directions. Charley's life is none stop. As we follow Charley through her chaotic days and life threatening nights we peal another layer off who she is, her powers and the baby's future.

I mostly enjoy this series but there always seems to be something that pulls me back from a five star review. There's a lot of repetition in this one and while I love Reyes I don't need to be reminded over and over how perfect he is and that every man, woman and child wants him. I also got frustrated with Charley taking risks that fell into the 'too stupid to live' category. The fact she survived because of either a) her guardians or b) suddenly discovering abilities she didn't know she had was just too convenient.

One of the outstanding moments in the book is when Charley had to discuss Reyes' 'Special Purpose' with Cookie's daughter. It was brilliantly done, I laughed out loud it was just too funny and Lorelei King delivered it perfectly.

So this installment is a mixed bag for me, but contains info you'll need for the overall arc of the series.

If you like my reviews I hope you will follow my blog. https://wyldheartreads.wordpress.com/

This series just keeps getting better and better. Rarely do you find that but Daryinda Jones is blowing it out of the water! ( )

Is it popcorn supernatural sexytime or is it a trip down 'burque nostalgia lane?

Why can't we have both!? Okay, okay, we can have both.

And the trip is always more fun than the destination. Gimmie everything Chili please, even the sexytime, and I'll forgive the fact that the basic plot is just the increasing danger of Charley's father-in-law.

Hell hounds? Okay. No problem. I guess it's the requisite stepping stone before we get to the really good stuff. And I don't really count certain relationship milestones as the good stuff. It's almost always... ho-hum usual. Sorry, Reyes fans! This is getting old.

BUT all the supernatural and the quirky personalities? That's golden. :) ( )

Yep, "resting' in an institution, most likely.
