Grim Reaper Charley Davidson is back in the twelfth installment of Darynda Jones’ New York Times bestselling paranormal series, The Trouble with Twelfth Grave.
Ever since Reyes Farrow escaped from a hell dimension in which Charley Davidson accidentally trapped him, the son of Satan has been brimstone-bent on destroying the world his heavenly Brother created. His volatile tendencies have put Charley in a bit of a pickle. But that’s not the only briny vegetable on her plate. While trying to domesticate the feral being that used to be her husband, she also has to deal with her everyday life of annoying all manner of beings—some corporeal, some not so much—as she struggles to right the wrongs of society. Only this time she’s not uncovering a murder. This time she’s covering one up.
Add to that her new occupation of keeping a startup PI venture—the indomitable mystery-solving team of Amber Kowalski and Quentin Rutherford—out of trouble and dealing with the Vatican’s inquiries into her beloved daughter, and Charley is on the brink of throwing in the towel and becoming a professional shopper. Or possibly a live mannequin. But when someone starts attacking humans who are sensitive to the supernatural world, Charley knows it’s time to let loose her razor sharp claws. Then again, her number one suspect is the dark entity she’s loved for centuries. So the question becomes: Can she tame the unruly beast before it destroys everything she’s worked so hard to protect?
First let me say, I love these books and this one is no exception. So many places, had me laughing uncontrollably with tears streaming down my face (it is so hard to read with tears between your eyes and reading glasses). Excellent story, the end left things hanging and I dislike thinking we are close to the end of this wonderful series but now am anticipating the next. Rock on Darynda.
I’m going to give advice that I’m horrible at taking for myself. You’re gonna want to start at book one. This whole series follows Charley Davidson with a wide variety of side characters and a continued storyline. Even though I have not read all the books...yet, I’m loving this series. Darynda Jones is a captivating writer. I love that it’s full of laughable moments as well as so much paranormal action that there isn’t a dull moment.
In book 12, Charley is so busy that I was exhausted for her. While on a 24 hour deadline, Charley was trying to find her missing husband, who may or may not be about to destroy the world; investigating a murder to keep her friend from being arrested; investigating a serial killer that can only be by a supernatural and guiding her niece as she starts her own investigating firm, teenage style.
All the cases are solved but this still ends on a cliffhanger. I’m looking forward to the next book! ARC provided by NetGalley.
Love this series!
I am so in love with this whole series. One of the best stories I’ve ever read. Please hurry with book 13! I didn’t get enough Reyes fix in this one!!
