Read from December 31, 2010 to October 20, 2013 — I own a copy

I absolutely LOVE this series.
Dave is an intriguing character to read about, and easy to fall in love with. It kept me on my toes and I purposefully read it in parts, because I didn't want it to end too soon...
still ended too soon, but so worth the read!!!

48.0% "Loved Skinflick and Randy Van's character. Both Skinflick and Gravedigger seemed to be getting to Dave much more than the other books had, especially with Amanda's boyfriend going after Dave. Dave does put himself through the paces, doesn't he? I liked Cecil's return in Gravedigger. hated the ending and ended up reading the first page(s) of the 7th book, so I could sleep knowing if Cecil was all right ..."

You're heart's in the right place, but... *sigh* I can't believe you just went out and did that.

74.0% "The annoying thing about this series is that I wanted to stretch it out, didn't want to read all books in one go... but I just can't seem to make myself stop *sigh*
I want to know what happens!"

79.0% "Have I mentioned I much I love Dave and Cecil? No? Well... I do :D

Though... will I be able to stop reading after this one? Or will I read through to the end of all twelve?"

82.0% "Finished the tenth one, and actually managed NOT to start the eleventh right away. Going to take a little break, and then read the rest.

I absolutely loved this one--Obedience--though. I loved how Dave is aware of his growing limitations and questioning whether he should have taken this job. Loved the intrigue, and loved Cecil :)"
