Fifth Grave Past the Light (Charley Davidson #5)
Charley Davidson isn't your everyday, run-of-the-mill grim reaper. She's more of a paranormal private eye/grim reaper extraordinaire. However, she gets sidetracked when the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, moves in next door. To further complicate matters, Reyes is...more
He’d gone back to staring into his wine, to running his finger along the rim of his glass. The movement mesmerized me. Without breaking his gaze, he said, “Come here.”

His mouth sought mine, the contact rough, raw, and he drank me in as though my kiss were the only thing keeping him alive.

Okay, so things never change with Charley. Yes, the case with the blonde women was really intriguing. I really enjoyed how everything set up. Th...more
A copy of Fifth Grave Past the Light was provided to me by St. Martin's Press for review purposes.
'The dead guy at the end of the bar kept trying to buy me a drink. Which figured. No one else was even taking a second look and I'd dressed to the nines.'
Charley Davidson is, as usual, up to her elbows in work and she's the only one equipped to handle it. Her apartment has suddenly been taken over by a few dozen ghostly blonde women who show no interest in passing, she almos...more
It all started with a key, a cheating man and a gun shot.
Charley, my book BFF has gotten into it again. She confronts a clients nasty husband, she is confronted by questions from the police, she's forced into therapy, her room is filled with blonds, she has a horrible life/death experience and Reyes is just down the hall in all his pure hot steamy sexyness. No, that is not all of it just the holy crisps parts for me. The best was of course Reyes just down the hall, va va voom ! The worst, the br...more
I would sell my soul to Darynda Jones if it meant she wrote these books in half the time and promised not to stop. Never stop writing Jones, NEVER STOP.
Fifth Grave was just as good, if not better than the first four. I know I've expressed how much I love Charley and the gang before, but you guys, I feel like I can't even physically express how much I
Okay, so this maybe sums it up...
Ok, ok, I'm trying to rein it in, I promise!

Darlings, if you liked Reyes before now...more
I previously claimed to hate erotica. Did I really mean that? Nooooooooo. Not when Reyes is involved. Give me more of that shit.
Saying Charley Davidson is an interesting character is saying Homer Simpson's a little bald, or Mr. Burns is a little evil. It's a wee bit of an understatement. Here, we have o...more
EEEEEPPPPPPPP!!!! I may have to curse in order to express my emotions for this one. I FUCKING LOVED THIS BOOK!!! This is probably my favorite in the series just because of the progression in Charley's & Reyes' relationship. They are so fucking adorable together I can't handle it. I get giddy & giggle, smiling like...more
I'm not sure how to rate this, I mostly liked it but I also had loads of issues with it. So for now, I'm giving it 2.5 stars. However, I may or may not change it to 3 stars once I'm not quite so pissed off.
I do think fans of Reyes, and the series in general will love Fifth Grave. Unfortunately for me, I LOATHE Reyes, and he was the main reason I wasn't impressed with Fifth Grave.
Random ranty thoughts:
-I couldn't take Charley and Reyes's relationshi...more
From the blurb, it looks like the Reyes/Charley relationship is finally getting somewhere. I hope this will be accompanied by more focus on Charley's powers and her discovering what they actually are. Less tell, more show, please !
Oh, and on a totally shallow note, here is my fan-casting if this is ever made...more
hasn't been said before?
Ok, how about:
~If you haven't read these already, what are you waiting for??
~There are heaps of sarcasm and humor on all books.
~Most body parts and material possessions get named!
~The sexual tension(and release) is off the charts!
~The mysteries, plot, climax, discoveries, characters, etc. They're all so much more polished than in previous books. I've loved all books in this series, but this book is by far the best...more
“A toast?” he asked, raising his glass.
“What are we toasting?” I clinked our glasses together, then brought mine to my lips.
“The fact that a girl I know named Charley survived another day.”
I'll drink to that too. But before I do, I want to share my feelings with the world...
The number you have called if currently unavailable because the owner is lying dead on the floor due to too much fangirling and crying and generally going cra...more
He asked her to marry him! He frickin asked her to marry him!!!!!!! Gah!!! Now I gotta wait for the next one... Really?!?!? My only complaint is that the book wasn't long enough.... I need Sixth Grave like NOW....
I was also doin a lot of this throughout the book... ESPECIALLY during the end!!
Charley, Reyes, Cookie, and Mr. Wong are all back in this fifth installment in the always freaking hilarious Charley Davidson series. Fifth Grave Past the Light is one of my favorite paranormal/romance/mystery/fantasy/WTF series and this one is one of my favorites so far! In the previous book, Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet, and in this one we really learn a lot more about what Charley and Reyes each are: where they come from, what their powers and abilities are, and where their relationship is go...more
If you are up to a FUNNY, FAST-PACED and WELL-WRITTEN urban fantasy story, this is it. And the best part is LOTS of romance for those who find other series in the genre lacking for not having enough of it. This has become one of my favorite series, one of those I just can't wait to put...more
Hurry up with the fifth one, Darynda Jones, Pretty please? c:
This book has been the best of the series so far. It was incredible, complex, hilarious and just… honestly it was just perfect. Every single page was better than the one before it and I never wanted it to end.
The chapter headers were as funny as ever!
’It’s all fun and games until someone loses a testicle.’
Every time we got some serious Charley and Reyes time, I thought I was going to cry. Everything I wanted to happen for them since book one, finall...more

SUMMARY (50 words or less)
I feel like there was something missing. First, I may have laughed with a slightly chuckle out loud once. Second, I felt like the plot was thin. It seemed like Charlie was running around doing other stuff besides solving the mystery and i...more

Darynda lo hizo otra vez, me ha encantado 5to libro y todavia no me ha decepcionado esta saga es tan buena *O*
-Oh Dios mío, no lo sé. ¿Qué quieres?
-A ti-, dijo con la voz una octava más grave. -Te deseo Holandesa, en cuerpo y alma. Te quiero en mi cama cada noche. Te quiero allí cuando me despierte por las mañanas. Quiero tu ropa colgada por mi apartamento y tu aroma en mi piel.
