Eighth Grave After Dark

Book 8, Charley Davidson Series - A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


There's holy hell to pay for Charley Davidson in Eighth Grave After Dark, the New York Times bestseller from Darynda Jones.

With twelve hellhounds after her, pregnant Charley Davidson takes refuge at the only place she thinks they can't get to her: the grounds of an abandoned convent. But after months of being cooped up there, Charley is ready to pop. Both metaphorically and literally since she is now roughly the size of a beached whale. Fortunately, a new case has captured her attention, one that involves a murder on the very grounds the team has taken shelter upon. A decades-old murder of the newly-vowed nun she keeps seeing in the shadows is almost enough to pull her out of her doldrums.

Charley's been forbidden to step foot off the sacred grounds. While the angry hellhounds can't traverse the consecrated soil, they can lurk just beyond its borders. They have the entire team on edge, especially Reyes. And if Charley didn't know better, she would swear Reyes is getting sick. He grows hotter with every moment that passes, his heat scorching across her skin every time he's near, but naturally he swears he's fine.

While the team searches for clues on the Twelve, Charley just wants answers and is powerless to get them. But the mass of friends they've accrued helps. They convince her even more that everyone in her recent life has somehow been drawn to her, as though they were a part of a bigger picture all along. But the good feelings don't last for long because Charley is about to get the surprise of her crazy, mixed-up, supernatural life….

From Publishers Weekly

May 04, 2015 – The eighth entry in Jones's tongue-in-cheek supernatural soap opera with ever escalating stakes (after 2014's Seventh Grave and No Body) finds Charlie Davidson and her super-sexy, literally-from-hell husband, Reyes, hiding from hellhounds in a convent while awaiting the birth of their daughter, Beep. Somehow they're still doing bits of ghost-supported detective work despite these desperate circumstances. Series followers will appreciate significant turns in the many ongoing characters' stories as well as Jones's signature fiery sex and some surprisingly spicy soul-devouring scenes. But while Charlie attempts to find a missing teenager, understand a ghost nun, and stay on the trail of her father's killer, fans of the sleuthing side may find that work gets lost amid all the personal drama. The series' biggest problem is that the widening gap between the characters' power level and their concerns, which puts humor at odds with plot: though Charlie is a god preparing to interfere with Lucifer's takeover of the Earth, she's worried about whether pregnancy makes her look like a blimp.

Customer Reviews

I'm hooked.

A friend dropped this off while I was recuperating from surgery and laid up. So then I had to buy the rest from iBooks because I couldn't get to the library to check them out! Love the characters, story lines and dialogue. Thanks Daryanda!
