Grim Reaper Charley Davidson is back in the final installment of Darynda Jones’ New York Times bestselling paranormal series!
Charley Davidson, Grim Reaper extraordinaire, is pissed. She’s been kicked off the earthly plain for eternity – which is the appropriate amount of time to make a person starkraving mad. But someone’s looking out for her, and she’s allowed to return after a mere hundred years in exile. Is it too much to hope for that not much has changed? Apparently it is. Bummer.
She’s missed her daughter, she’s missed Reyes, and Beep, but now that she’s back on earth, it’s time to put to rest burning questions that need answers. What happened to her mother? How did she really die? Who killed her? And are cupcakes or coffee the best medicine? It all comes to a head in an epic showdown between good and evil in this final smart and hilarious novel.
My top thoughts:
Gah! What a way to end the series! I’m so sad it’s over and I totally started stalling the last couple chapters because I wasn’t ready for it to be over. I really want to reread it, too, I think.
I feel like Darynda did a really good job bringing things to a satisfying conclusion. I like where Charley and Reyes’s relationship is at as we end the series. And man did she bring some revelations I just did not see coming at all – talk about plot twists! And despite blowing my mind, not a single one of them felt ridiculous or unbelievable.
The story is only partly over though – we still need to see Beep’s story – and I really look forward to that. I have no idea when or how that’s coming, but I can’t imagine we won’t get it. I wonder if I’ll miss Charley’s brand of humor though. Because that’s seriously great and a favorite element for this series.
Lorelei King has delivered this entire series beautifully and put herself at the top of my favorite authors list. If I see she’s narrated something, I will pick it up, regardless of the author or topic I think.
It's bittersweet for Berls to see the end of the Charley Davidson series. She gives 13th Grave 4.5/5 stars. #audio #review. Click To Tweet
