OH MY GOD!!!!
What is this cliffhanger?!
A typical day in the life of Charley Davidson involves cheating husbands, missing people, errant wives, philandering business owners, and oh yeah…demons, hell hounds, evil gods, and dead people. Lots and lots of dead people. As a part time Private Investigator and full-time Grim Reaper, Charley has to balance the good, the bad, the undead, and those who want her dead. In this eleventh installment, Charley is learning to make peace with the fact that she is a goddess with all kinds of power and that her own daughter has been born to save the world from total destruction. But the forces of hell are determined to see Charley banished forever to the darkest corners of another dimension. With the son of Satan himself as her husband and world-rocking lover, maybe Charley can find a way to have her happily ever after after all.
Okay, so I’m a little late getting back to this party. I was also nervous that I wouldn’t like the series anymore or that it would feel flat now 11 books in.
I was wrong.
Well, okay, I was kinda right. Reyes does his whole lean-against-doorways thing and tells Charley not to do her job, as per usual. Also, because we know the characters so well by this point, there isn’t much to evolve– in terms of side characters. I miss Charley and Cookie interactions, but in a way… it is how life goes. They are both super busy with their ways of saving people.
We did get more information on the prophecy and Charley’s…powers. There is seriously so much to this book and I’m amazed at how I still laugh at it, but am totally hooked.
I blew through this book. I wouldn’t have moved from my reading spot if I didn’t need to pee or make food.
Once again that stupid ass cliffhanger!! I am in such need for the next book. At the same time, I could totally go for Beep’s story now too. I am a huge sucker for Osh. Quentin and Amber? I ship it hard. I need the next generation’s story too and this series is really setting that series up. We just need to know all about Charley and all that jazz.
