Took me forever to get to it, but now that I've finally read it, I'm very glad that I did and will be reading the rest of the books to get ready for book 4 later this month.
Charley is an awesome heroine. I love her smartass quips. I know that can put some people off, but I just loved her for each and every one of them. It turns out that Charley is a grim reaper. The departed cross through her to reach Heaven. While Charley is sometimes annoyed with the ghosts that come to her making requests and dealing with the people-who-are-left-behing (it makes her sad, Charley is surprisingly sensitive), she doesn't seem to mind providing this service, not that she has much of a choice. She does seem to be prone to getting herself hurt, though. Still, she definitely isn't stupid and I like her a lot.
Then of course, there's Reyes. This guy is an enigma up until the very end of the book. Even after we learn what we learn (shocking!), the man is still a mystery. I'm surprised that he seems to have taken it upon himself to protect what he's protecting since it seems he's protecting more than just Charley. What made him decide to work against his father? Besides his Dutch? That scene where she seemed to obtain some of his knowledge was powerful and very enlightening. I'm wondering how to feel about this guy. I like him, but talk about dangerous. It feels a lot like liking Barrons. Not really a good guy, but pretty difficult not to like him, considering. I need to see more of him to make a real decision. I will keep him in the like column for now.
I really liked the story going on as well. Charley and her Uncle did good, helping to find out who had killed those lawyers and getting an innocent man out of prison. For all that Charley isn't a real police officer (but she is a licensed PI), she actually handled herself pretty well. I'm just glad she seems willing to work with others instead of doing everything by herself.
I was glad she was able to open up to Connie more than she originally had as well. It helped me to learn a lot about Charley and the kind of person she is. Hopefully, she'll be able to confide in more people as the series goes on.
I really like the way Darynda Jones uses the concept of the Grim Reaper here. Much different from most grims I come across in other series. This is a very promising series....more

I still really liked it, but I didn't completely love it because there is a big issue that IAnother solid installment in the Charley Davidson series. I still really liked it, but I didn't completely love it because there is a big issue that I want to see resolved that just seems determined not to go all the way there.
The story starts out with Charley as a shut-in (in Cookie's apartment, not her own) with lots of crap bought from TV infomercials and no plans to ever leave the apartment building. She has not heard from Reyes in over two months. She also not spoken to her father in pretty much that same amount of time. Charley's friends and family are understandably worried. She finally leaves the building when she decides she needs to get paid by Reyes for finding his father after Cookie explains to her just how broker she is.
Charley is a bit different in this book. The snarky comments and habit and naming things that don't really need to be named were still there, but Charely has acquired something that she's never really had to deal with before. Fear. Because of the attack she suffered at the hands of Earl Walker, Charley has become deathly afraid of just about every thing. I was proud of her for going out and doing what she had to when she got a case, though. She took a gun everywhere, but at least she went out. Of course, confronting Reyes gives Charley the knowledge that humans can be possessed by demons and that they really want to find her and kill her. The fear she now carries around attracts them to her, so finding her isn't all that difficult. Reyes being Reyes, he still protects her despite believing she wants him to stay away from her. He doesn't want what will happen to happen should Lucifer and his gang get their hands on her.
I loved, loved, loved the info Reyes gave Charley about what she is and where she came from in this book. That's the most info he's parted with since the very end of book 1. It was about time. There's still quite a lot Charley doesn't know (although I think she knows more than she did before about what she's capable of now, thanks to the end of this book), but she still learned quite a bit from Reyes. Speaking of him, I'm wondering how much truth was in what Hedeshi (and Garrett) said about why Reyes was really up on Earth. That info comes from demons, so can it be believed? I just don't know. I don't think Reyes does, either.
The way Charley's case played out was bittersweet. I knew that was what the deal was with her client, but it still jolted me a little. The culprits were a huge surprise and I felt so awful for Art and Harper's family. Which makes me think about Charley's family. I understand why her dad did what he did at the end of book 3, but it was still so messed up. And then that scene in Charley's office in this book was nuts. Charley's dad is definitely a true believer, but that was overkill. It also seemed to cost Pari a potential girlfriend. Charley feels that they will likely make up at some point, but it's likely to take a while. Her dad needs to chill out a bit, I think.
My biggest disappointment is that there still seems to be no real resolution between Charley and Reyes. With that ending, it seems like there is high potential for things to go smoothly between them, but I really am not sure where they stand. They are so hot and cold. One minute they're having hot monkey sex and then one of them pisses the other off and I don't know what's going on with them. Pick a side you two, pick a side and stay on it!
I'm looking forward to the next book. I want to see if the demons are telling the truth. I want to find out more about what happened to Garrett, too. Plus, how will Charley deal/live with what she did to that guy at the end of the book? I really want to see how things play out....more

Which was awesome because I wasI was too immersed in this book to make status updates apparently. I did not want to put down my kindle, so I didn't! Which was awesome because I was able to read straight through. I love doing that, but now I'm sad the book is over. Thank goodness there isn't a crazy ass wait for book 4. October 30th, I'm all over you Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet.
Charley's case this time around had her knowing who the culprit was as soon as the case began. Only, it had quite the twist to it and watching Charley figure it all out was amusing as usual. Man, that guy was such a douche! But at least, Charley was able to reunite a family by taking on this job.
Too bad her other case didn't go so well at all. First, Charley gets tricked into helping Reyes with his prison escape, then she's on the case to finding his not so dead Dad, Earl Walker. That ended quite horribly and angry Charley got quite angry. (view spoiler)[And Swopes nearly got dead, again. I'd quit hanging around Charley if I were him. She's gotten him shot twice in the space of a few weeks. Take a hint, Swopes! (hide spoiler)] I had no idea Charley could do what she did when her anger went buckwild when she was in that hospital room. I can't blame her for being so angry. People keep neglecting to inform her of extremely pertinent, life-saving information. Her Dad did not have to do what he did to her, though. He may very well have lost his daughter for good this time. What he did in the last book was bad enough and Charley worked past that feeling of betrayal. I'm not so certain she can do it again. Not so quick on the heels of last time. And not with her anger at Reyes mixed in. Not to mention her now lowered self-esteem, (view spoiler)[speaking of which, where is this thing with Donovan going to go? Reyes seemed so very genuinely hurt when she kissed Donovan in front of him. But how can you care for a person that much and not trust them? (hide spoiler)]. I do hope that those two can work things out somehow, but I don't think they can do it too soon. I wonder if he'll come around to check her progress considering the war that seems to be right on top of them. He might be too hurt to do it, though.
We now have a bit of prophecy, too. Apparently, angels like to gossip and a nun tends to overhear them. Things are going to get bad for Charley and crew since the demons seem to have a way of tracking her. At least she seems to have a guardian (view spoiler)[ghost dog! (hide spoiler)] now. I hope to see more on that front. Charley has a lot to learn, but no one will tell her what she's supposed to be able to do. She's done some amazing things a couple of times now, but surely, there's more that she can do. But for some reason, no one can tell her what these things are or how she's supposed to do them. I don't blame her for being frustrated about that.
I hope Charley won't regret too much the way things stand with Reyes right now. I wonder how close she'll allow Donovan to get? I have a feeling she'll be hanging with those bikers from time to time.

We start off with a week having passed since the events of First Grave on the Right. Reyes is missing and Charley is determined to find out where he is. Especially after the condition she sees his incorporeal body in when he happens to fall on top of her from her ceiling. When he's lucid, he tells her that he's hiding where she'll never find him and he's determined that she never will since demons from hell are after him to get to her. They go back and forth on this a lot and piss each other off constantly. They care about each other in their own fucked up ways, though it seems more like an obsession. Like they can't help but want each other. Charley seems to have developed deep feelings. I am never sure exactly where Reyes stands since every time he shows up, he immediately starts trying to have sex with her. I know he can get jealous when Garrett flirts with her and based on some things his friends told her once she tracked them down, it seems as though something could be there on his end, but I'm still not completely certain. (view spoiler)[He didn't kill her when the demons saw her like he said he would, so something must have been there, not too sure on that now that Charley went and bound him to his corporeal body without a way of unbinding him. (hide spoiler)] Too bad things with them stand where they do now. Here's to hoping those two won't have such a volatile, unhealthy relationship forever. As it is, it seems like Charley should start thinking about moving on.
As to the case that Charley was working on, the outcome of that shocked me. I honestly did not see that coming. I still can't believe those guys were Secret Service.
The other surprise was the thing that was going on with Charley's father and that parolee. When they listened to those tapes, I understood why he didn't want Charley to be there. And she was so upset. I get why he did what he did, but like Gemma said, he should have warned Charley that what happened was a possibility. I was so upset on her behalf. It's lucky for him she didn't let it come between them. And how is it that everyone understood what he did, but Denise just couldn't get it? *smh* That woman irks me. That part made me cry.
I sure can say this, Darynda Jones sure knows how to write an engaging story. I never want to put these books down.

Things get turned upside down for sophomore Lorelei MacAlister when the Angel of Death starts high school in her small town. What she doesn’t know is that she has been slated to die. It’s simply her time. And Death has been sent to do the deed. But when he touches her, when he peers into her eyes and reaches into her heart, he realizes she is more than what he was led to believe, and he disobeys his orders. He brings her back from the brink of death when he was supposed to push her into it. Because of this, he gets trapped on this plane. And that’s when all hell breaks loose. Literally.
The ratings on this book aren't as high as I was expecting considering how wildly popular Darynda Jones's Charley Davidson series is. Despite that, I enjoyed it immensely. I really, really did.
Lorelei McCalister is just a regular, normal girl-except that she gets visions when she touches people. To her, most of these visions are nonsense and never come true. Things start to change, however, once she sees and accidentally touches a boy and has a vision of him that shows he isn't entirely human and he apparently fights monsters. She begins to wonder constantly who this boy is. Then he shows up at her school and things start to get even more weird.
The school loner seems to be following her around and he really, really hates the new guy. And the new guy doesn't seem to like him any better for that matter. They constantly go at it and it seems to be because of something stemming from Cameron's past. I seriously doubt that Jared (whose real name is later revealed to be something quite different) would have an issue with Cameron if Cameron wasn't always going after him the way he does. Jared, after all, knows who and what Cameron is. He's always known. It's amazing the strength of those two. Those fights were pretty damn epic. And scary for Lorelei who was a bystander and had no idea wtf was going on.
A few days later and Jared reveals all once Lorelei and her friends are able to track him down. That was so refreshing. A supernatural being who isn't all secretive and mysterious. She asked and he answered. I loved that. And it turns out that he did something for her that he shouldn't have done. But it turns out, that he did for such a sweet reason. He wanted a chance to know her. Even if it was forbidden. For such a powerful being, he is insanely sweet and I adore Jared.
I'm not sure how I feel about Cameron, yet. He's so antagonistic, but I think he really is falling for Lorelei's friend Brooklyn who seems to care about him, too, for some reason. Too bad for their friend Glitch. It looks to me like he doesn't have a chance with Brooke at all. If not, I hope he can find someone that will make him happy. Because Glitch is awesome and funny.
Still, there was one more big secret to be revealed and it was quite the doozy. Poor Lorelei. And it turns out that her grandparents and many others in their tiny little town know a whole hell of a lot about what's going on. Like adults, though, they keep the info from the children. It's possible Lorelei wouldn't have gotten herself into so much trouble if they had been as forthcoming with information as Jared was.
And it seems that someone else knows what she is, too. Namely, the guy that seems to have set things in motion, caused Lorelei's parents to disappear and caused her to have to live with what's inside of her. Now I know why that reporter was hanging around. It seems to me that Lorelei might want to watch her back. And her soul....more

My favorite parts overall were the POVs from Dank. I hated that he was hurting, but he was so sweet. My other favorite parts were Gee's pep talks to Dank. She is completely awesome. I don't like that whatever was going on with her and Dank's drummer is left hanging out there, though. I wonder if we'll get a book for Gee tying up some things.
My major issues with this book is that it needed some serious editing. Really, really needed it. There were instances of someone being called the wrong name, wrong words being used and just bad grammar or missing punctuation. Luckily, this didn't detract overly much from the story, but it did bother me that I noticed so many instances of this just within the first 5% of the book.
My other major issue was that story felt just a bit contrived. What was the point of Pagan needing to make the choice between Dank and Jay if there was never a chance of real competition? Jay bored the shit out of Pagan. He kept saying he couldn't quit thinking about her, but he kept banging another chick. When Pagan chose Dank and that left Jay's soul without a mate, it seemed too easy the way that was wrapped up. I didn't mind that Pagan's heart was already with Dank, but I expected more of a fight. I hated the way Leif interfered. So sick of that guy. At least he didn't pop back up after that.
Anyway, I like the way this concluded. It's a little too HEA, but not anything short of what I was expecting. In the end, this was a fun series to read....more

When the dead need to talk, Alex Craft is always ready to listen…
As a Grave Witch, Alex solves murders by raising the dead—an ability that comes at a cost, and after her last few cases, that cost is compounding. But her magic isn’t the only thing causing havoc in her life. While she’s always been on friendly terms with Death himself, things have recently become a whole lot more close and personal. Then there’s her sometime partner, agent Falin Andrews, who is under the glamour of the Winter Queen. To top everything off, her best friend has been forever changed by her time spent captive in Faerie.
But the personal takes a backseat to the professional when a mysterious suicide occurs in Nekros City and Alex is hired to investigate. The shade she raises has no memory of the days leading up to his brutal ending, so despite the very public apparent suicide, this is murder. But what kind of magic can overcome the human will to survive? And why does the shade lack the memory of his death? Searching for the answer might mean Alex won’t have a life to remember at all.
For some reason, I did not read this book as soon as it came out. I do know that I was reading quite a few books during that time period, but I still should have gotten to this one long before now. I don't know why I kept pushing it back like I was afraid to read it. Turns out, I'm a bit glad that I did wait until closer to the release of book 4 to do so because that ending is so mean. It also turns out that there was no reason to dread reading this as I totally loved it and it's currently my favorite book in the series. Go figure.
Alex is back and it's been some time since the last book as she's just finished recovering from her loss of sight after overusing her magic during her last big case. She's decided to open up an office for her and Rianna so that they can go into business together like they'd always dreamed. While checking out the building, they very nearly witness an apparent suicide and from here on in, things start getting strange.
This case is frustrating for Alex because she can't seem to convince the cops that the man didn't kill himself, but was murdered and it seems that this case links back to more apparent suicides. When she discovers what's really going on, she tries to catch the culprit only to cause more loss of life. She was already practically on the outs with the cops because of the events in the first two books, but this last misstep seems to have made her very much not one of the squad's favorite people. After a certain incident, I don't think Alex's relationship with John can go back to what it was. That makes me sad.
It does seem that Alex may be repairing her relationships with her other friends. I'm hoping that Caleb will calm his ass down now that (view spoiler)[he and Holly are finally screwing each other. (hide spoiler)] He was getting on my nerves with the way he's been snapping on Alex over those FIB raids. I understand he doesn't like having his place tossed. Really, I do, but there are so many factors involved before Alex can align with a court or even declare as an independent and it isn't her fault that the Winter Queen is a bitch. And now that Alex and Holly aren't keeping things from Tamara, anymore, that relationship seems to be improving as well.
It's Alex's relationships with Death and Falin that are still up in the air. I truly believe that both of them love her, but I have no idea what she feels for them. That mender guy says near the end of the book that Alex won't put a name to her feelings for Death, but what she was doing for him proves what she feels for him. I'd like to think so because after everything Death has done for Alex, I'm freakin' in love with him. I just adore that man and Alex needs to nut up and make a decision here. Falin is still under the Winter Queen's compulsion and he admits to something in this book I hadn't expected to hear him say. I need him to try to get out from under that or something. He's admitted that Alex can't trust him and that she should run if she sees him, but with the way the book ends, how the hell is she supposed to run now?
Also, it seems the cat is about to be out of the bag with Alex's secret. Can't wait to see the fall out of that.["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>...more

I don't even know where to begin. Yes, there was heartache, but also so much happiness. I loved reading this and those last few chapters were doozeys. I kept crying through the last two. I have to hand it to Rachel Vincent for making me feel everything so deeply.
What happened with Kaylee and Nash I knew would happen, but not in that way. Not at all. Sure didn't think he was gonna damage himself so badly, either. And with what happened during those last two chapters, I don't know how things can be fixed. I want at least some kind of closure there.
Tod is the best. I knew I loved him for a reason. Can't wait to see how that will all work out.
Kaylee's last moments were so very well written. I was proud of her.
I find myself extremely excited for book 6. Gotta read Sophie's short. About time she finally learns what's going on....more

StDespite my extreme dislike of Sophie, I enjoyed this novella. We get some Sophie insight, though most of it didn't do anything to endear her to me. Still, she proved that she can do what it takes to survive. I honestly thought she handled that really well.
We meet a new character; who seems quite interesting. And now Avari has his sights set om him. And if I didn't know better, a soulless Thane is now on the loose.
Honestly, it's about time Sophie learns about the whole bean sidhe thing. I wonder if they'll tell her the complete truth about her mom.
I also can't wait for her to find out that she's hardly the only special one. She wants to be better than Kaylee because she's survived monsters, but she has no idea whatsoever just how much Kaylee has done for her.
Still, Sophie did well. I just hope she gets an attitude adjustment. She's gonna need one when whatever Avari tries to use Luca for comes to pass....more

I really got into it. I liked all of the main and secondary characters and just had to know how things would turn out. I'm glad I decided to check this out.
I liked that this was mostly a paranormal romance. There were times when I felt that the love between Pagan and Dank was a bit more than obsessive and I felt terrible for Leif. Pagan used him horribly. I can understand why she did it, but it sure didn't make it right. And she let it drag on for so long. Still, I'm glad things were able to work out in the end. Sort of. It seems they'll probably have more problems. I do wish it hadn't taken her quite so long to figure out the deal with Dank. She is much too smart for that.
Thank goodness book two comes out in April after that bombshell of a cliffhanger. Sheesh....more

Nash keeps trying to work it out with Kaylee and she keeps not being ready. She just can't forgive and trust. And like Tod says, maybe she shouldn't. The situation only become more difficult when his literal nightmare of a former girlfriend, Sabine comes to town after hunting Nash down for two and a half years. At first, you think she's just a bitch, but she has more problems than that and with Avari his friend running around stirring up trouble, it just makes everything worse.
Kaylee's determination to hold on to Nash after a while started seeming like a worse and worse idea. Sabine may be the foil here, but the girl does tend to speak the truth. Same with Tod. I think they're both right that Kaylee and Nash would be better off apart. Like they said, Kaylee doesn't need Nash anymore. Not even to help control her wail since his mother taught her how to swallow it back down. If she can't forgive and trust, what the hell is the point? I think I want them to split up. I really hope this doesn't get dragged out. I know that after every thing that happened, it can't be too easy for her. What happened with that whole Demon's Breath debacle was serious shit, but if she can't ever get past it, again, what's the point?
I'm glad she's finally told Emma everything. She deserved to know. It should never have taken her so long. Hell, someone should tell Sophie. The girl always manages in the mess anyway. Her Dad really isn't doing her any favors by keeping her in the dark. After all, it sure didn't work with Kaylee.
Now what's gonna happen? More relationship drama for sure. Will Avari still be up to his tricks? All I know is, drama, drama, drama......more

I can't believe how blI am giving this 4 stars because of how emotional it made me in the last chapter and because I spent most of the book in a rage.
I can't believe how blind Kaylee was. She noticed what was going on with Doug and Scott and didn't evem see it in the person closest to her. The whole thing is seriously screwed up. It frusttated me every time Kaylee noticed how cold Nash's hands were and just refused to put two and two together. How in nine hells did she forget about her balloon idea? They may have solved this more quickly if not for that. Nash and Avari both were at least partially right that the whole thing started with her.
Nash seriously fucked up. He deserves some kind of punishment. One kid is looney for life and Nash himself is partially responsible for the other's death. Addiction was not a good look for him. The Hudson brothers both messed up. Tod brought the stuff, even unkowingly so he could be with a girl. His intentions were good, but that deal was extremely bad. Nash will be lucky if Kaylee's Dad ever lets him near her again.
I can't wait for Sophie to learn what's been going on. She may be hurting from the loss of her Mom, but her attitude is on my last nerve. She needs to be made to eat some crow.
All in all, this book frustrated the hell out of me. I somehow didn't hate it because Kaylee did right by herself in the end. I just really hope she isn't so stupid in the future....more

Even when that friend is dead. And doing it for a girl she didn't even know and things still ended up the way they were supposed to. A sacrifice was made, but Kaylee did the right thing. I don't even know how to feel about Tod now. There be some conflicted feelings. For everything she did and all of the trouble she got into to, not to mention that near death experience he would have sacrificed her for that girl.
And could there be any more sexual tension between Kaylee and Nash? This is the first YA I've read where the tension is so overt and is more sexual than in others I've read. Save for the first Vampire Academy book where Rose and Dmitri got spelled. I think I remember reading a thread somewhere that mentioned the tension between them not being fulfilled. I hope there aren't too many constant interruptions or else that could get real old, real fast.
Kaylee has many good qualities and her intentions are good, but this girl gets herself into a lot of unnecessary trouble. I know she feels the adults in her life wouldn't help because of the danger, but going it alone is way worse. The fights with her dad do seem true to life, though. That is normal teenager stuff. Those scenes definitely feel real and seem real to the characters. I like her lessons with Harmony as well. Harmony is a great Mom.
I'm hoping that Kaylee learns a bit from her mistakes. It's great she wants to help people, it's a good trait, but the secrets never seem to help her. It just results in angry adults....more

Is he really gone? It seems so wrong. Given only to be taken away.
I really hadn't expected that group to have actually been working together. I wonder if Nathaniel was just being used so the real man behind everything wouldn't be seen consorting with the enemy. Still, what was up with him looking more and more disheveled all the time? Guess he had fallen a little out of grace for letting Maddy get away with the cubs and the cameras. No wonder he had asked why she wanted to take them. He knew exactly what they were. Part of me really wanted to believe he was genuinely interested in redeeming himself. Disappointed me that that wasn't the case.
Maddy has a bad habit of turning just about everyone into an enemy. I like that she's loyal to her friends, but sometimes, she needs to be quiet. She also has a really bad habit of just rushing right into a situation without much forethought. It's why they all keep getting stuck fighting everywhere they go. Hopefully, she'll think better of that now with the revelation that was revealed at the end.
While Maddy can seriously frustrate me, I love Samiel and Lucifer. ...more
