Sixth Grave on the Edge by Darynda Jones
If you’re looking for a story that will have you feeling a whole gambit of emotions, then SIXTH GRAVE ON THE EDGEby Darynda Jones is that book.
In this fantasy novel featuring the grim reaper and the son of Satan, Jones makes the impossible plausible and so entertaining you’re lost in a world where all she creates is real.
Once again narrator Lorelei King does a tremendous job of giving distinct voices to each of the characters. Her mannerisms adds depth to the characters and enhances the story. King’s interruption of the story brings the characters to life.
Charley Davidson, a private investigator (and the grim reaper), has a lot on her plate. There’s a naked dead man in her car, a man has lost his soul in a card game, a woman is on the run from the mob, and her assistant Cookie needs help with her love life. Oh, and she has to give sexy Reyes Farrow (aka the son of Satan) an answer to his marriage proposal and the Twelve Hounds of Hell may be coming for her.
Author Darynda Jones serves up numerous sub-plots throughout the story and has a surprise twist at the end with a glimpse of what could come next. While the story deals with ghosts, demons and the supernatural, Jones combines it with laugh-out-loud humor and steamy romance. Woven throughout the story is also subtle and poignant dealings with real everyday tragedies such as abusive relationships and child abductions.
Charley Davidson is a protagonist you can’t help but love. She’s witty, independent to a fault, unsure of herself, kind hearted and fiercely loyal to those she loves. Jones has crafted a cast of zany characters that will entertain you for hours. In addition, each chapter begins with a whacky quote that will leave you smiling.
This is a series that I highly recommend you read/listen to in order. Each story can stand on its own, but some content will be lost without the whole backstory.
SIXTH GRAVE ON THE EDGE will have you on the edge of your seat with its fast-pace, adrenaline-driven action, sizzling romance, and unexpected twists.
