I love love love the Charley Davidson series!! I don’t know how Darynda Jones does it, but the humor in this series is flat-out phenomenal – without doubt, she writes the FUNNIEST books I’ve ever read. So if you love humorous paranormal/urban fantasy books, you should definitely read this series, if you haven’t already.
The Curse of Tenth Grave is another fantastic installment to the series, and it’s a must read for those who’ve been keeping up with Charley and the gang. So much goes on here and so many things about the characters are revealed – THIS was the book I’d been waiting for ever since we found out the truth of what Charley was. I wanted answers, and I got them in Tenth Grave.
Charley has gained her memories back, which means PI Charley is back, too! The fun- and trouble-filled mystery that we love that Charley and the gang get into is back in the game, and this time, Charley has to balance her PI side (helping a homeless girl with a curse and solving a murder) with her paranormal side (trapping a dangerous god), all while trying to fix some marital issues with Reyes. No big deal, right?
Given that the last book was so romantic, I was surprised that Charley and Reyes had some problems. But since they’re both keeping secrets from one another, it’s inevitable that they’d bump into a few problems in their marriage. Plus with everything going on with Beep, it’s a very trying and emotional time, though I had faith that these two would work it out together. And trust me, this couple comes out stronger in the end because of it.
“What other secrets are you hiding behind those sparking eyes?”
He grinned. “You have my heart. That’s where I had all my secrets.”
“Then I guess I don’t have the key.”
“Are you kidding? You forged the key.”
The Curse of Tenth Grave isn’t another filler installment – it’s packed with plot and revelations, I nearly couldn’t keep up. It’s another fantastic, fast-paced, hilarious book in a series I adore. Darynda Jones seems to never disappoint, and I only fall more in love with these characters with every new installment. I can’t wait to see where the author will take us next – I’m already dying for Eleventh Grave in Moonlight!
