As a Part-time PI and fulltime grim reaper, Charley Davidson has asked a lot of questions throughout her life: Why can I see dead people? Who is the hot supernatural entity following me? How do I get gum out of my sister’s hair before she wakes up? But, “How do I trap not one malevolent god, but three?” was never among them. Until now. And since those gods are on earth to kill her daughter, she has little choice but to track them down, trap them, and cast them from this dimension.
There’s just one problem. One of the three stole her heart a very long time ago. Can the Razer, a god of absolute death and destruction, change his omniscient spots, or will his allegiances lie with his brothers?
Those are just a few of the questions Charley must answer, and quick. Add to that a homeless girl running for her life, an innocent man who’s been charged with murder, and a pendant made from god glass that has the entire supernatural world in an uproar, and Charley has her hands full. If she can manage to take care of the whole world-destroying-gods thing, we’re saved. If not, well…
THE DIRT ON NINTH GRAVE felt a little bit like a time out and reset sorta book, THE CURSE OF TENTH GRAVE brought us back to the normal side of Charley's life—if you could ever call it that.
I always look forward to getting my hands on the next Charley Davidson book and after THE DIRT ON NINTH GRAVE I was very interested in seeing how Charley would do re-entering her life again. She jumped in full steam ahead and re-entered her life as she always does, with determination and her own personal flair. There is a lot of action, there is a lot of danger and the emotions are up, down and off the wall.
There has been one major thing that has been bothering me for a really long time. The constant misunderstandings between Charley and Reyes causing bigger issues because they just won't open their mouths and talk to each other. I just don't get it. At this point in their relationship, after everything that they have been through, after all that they mean to each other, you would think that they would know better by now. THE CURSE OF TENTH GRAVE definitely wasn't as bad with this as some of the previous installments, but it's still present. They really need to start putting everything out there. I will admit that Cookies resolution to their current misunderstanding was pretty awesome.
So what will happen next with Charley and her gang? Who the heck knows. ELEVENTH GRAVE AT MIDNIGHT won't come out until January 2017 so I will have a while to dream of what I want to happen before I get it into my hands. This is hands down one of my favorite series. Thank you Darynda Jones for continuing to keep me entertained.
I gave it 4/5 stars
