Eleventh Grave in Moonlight
As a fan it hurts me that every freaking book is now a cliffhanger. I use to be the biggest advocate for this series, and honestly I just feel letdown as a fan of the series. I get so sick and tired of little info being put out each book that pertains to the big showdown at the end of whenever and then bam cliffhanger. It's now book 11, what are we waiting for? It's super convoluted, and I just find myself frustrated at best to describe it. I put in my time, money, energy and love into this seri ...more
The case she was trying to solve here was interesting enough, I guess, but I'm so underwhelmed by the way the ongoing story is unwrapping that I can't get too enthusiastic about this instalment.
I really wish this series stuck to a simpler formula of Charley being snarky and fun and solving mysteries with just a hint of the supernatural stuff. This is just to ...more
Now I have to wait another year to find out? Just get a gun and shoot me instead. It would be easier than the slow torture you have unleashed upon me, Darynda!
Ugh! So, anyway, in this installment, we have Charley trying to solve a case that involves the people who kidnapped her husband as a baby. These people, unlike most kidnappers, are bat-shit crazy. Like religious crazy, which is somehow worse. The way I see it, if you want to be evil assholes, why drag God into the mix? ...more
Watchful angels everywhere! a psychotic stalker, missing children and the sickest, most misguided religious adoption agency to ever see the light of day. To top it off; there is Eidolon...
That's right, there is no rest for the wicked. Or the godly. As in actual gods, of course. Our star-crossed crossed deities are unlikely to find peace on Earth anytime soon. Add a God Glass to the equation and things might get a little hairy...
But I suppose thats only to be expected when you're Sata ...more

Why this book?
I love this series
What I thought
This book was just plain awesome, but of course it was the whole series is awesome! I love Charley and all her shenanigans and Reyes and gang. It kills me every year to wait and see what they're going to be up to next. So much stuff happened in this book and so much is brought to light. There is never a dull moment. I liked how this book didn't feel as dark as the last two did and ...more
Jones' eleventh book is every bit as good as it possible can be. After eleven books one would expect things to start to get to be too much or even too little but instead, each page is infused with just as much humor, fun, and adventure as always, not to m ...more
There is never enough pages in these books ! Ms Jones writes so magically that it always feels like I just started the book then BAM it’s over. I get lost in the story, lose track of time and become totally emerged in Charlie Davidson’s world, fall so completely in love with her husband. Ah, I mean I really enjoy reading these characters. Falling in love with a fictional character would be nuts right ? I may be a little nuts.
Point of extreme interest-
-Charlie is evolving, superpowe ...more
I read the past three CHARLEY DAVIDSON titles, and looking back that was a mistake because Lorelei King’s voice has become as synonymous with these books as the t-shirt quotes. Things are still trucking along after 11 volumes, some for the better, and others not so much. Like any long running series, it’s had its hiccups. More questions get added while as others are answered, but overall ELEVENTH GRAVE IN THE MOONLIGHT was another set-up installment for what is to come, ...more
I enjoyed Eleventh Grave in Moonlight but as with most long running series I'm beginning to feel some fatigue. It took me much longer than usual to read this because I felt like the series has began to go off the rails a bit.
Darynda Jones is a masterful storyteller. She has somehow managed to keep this series funny, sexy, and filled with emotion. Despite my fatigue I will read book 12 which I believe will the last in the series.

Yes! another five star read and my first for this year. I love this series and every single book just keeps getting better and better.
In this book, Charley's up to her same old thing...solving mysteries and helping people at every turn but she is getting stronger with her powers. She is learning more about herself and thankfully Reyes is finally giving her some real help.
Of course, Reyes and Charley are my favorite parts of this whole series and I just love getting to know more about t ...more
Anyway onto the plot. There is so much converging here that ...more
I just can't believe this author! How she amazes me every time I read a book of hers. I just love Charlie and Reyes! This is one the the most beautiful and extraordinary series EVER!! I'll always read about Charlie.
This series is just getting better and better. The smexy scenes are incredible! I LOVED the plot this time, it didn't involve just the MCs but the side ones as well ( not so sidey...). I hope I see more of Shawn, he looked so cool...
This is a book you read in just one s ...more
I can honestly say that the Charley Davidson series is my all time favorite. Darynda Jones has cracked the code of keeping a series fresh even after 10 books. I love every character in this series and they all play such an important role in what makes this series so amazing. In Eleventh Grave in Moonlight Charley is up to her usual Private Investigating activities while also dealing with the paranormal danger that is hanging over the ...more
From the beginning until the very end I was caught up in her world; but let’s start from the top, shall we?
Something is up with Uncle Ubie, Angel gets a little touchy feely, and Reyes? Well… he gets some steamy prime time not ready for television moments. I really did love this installment. It feels like a throwback to the earlier books. It’s more focused and albeit still funny, just not as silly as she’ ...more
Personally, I try to stay away from any partic ...more
And now? I'm just enjoying the UF goodness.
Let's enjoy those godlike powers, shall we? It's BIG power. :) HUGE.
So why isn't the story overwhelmed with such huge powers and huge stakes?
It's Albuquerque. Nobody expects much of that place, I think. BUT GIMME MY HOT FOOD! ...more
The men in Charley’s life are trying to boss her around. Someone from Reye’s past has asked Charley to do some investigative work for him and Reye’s has ordered her to ‘Drop the case, Dutch’. Ubie is in a grumpy mood and has told Charley to stay at home or he will arres ...more
I love the way Charley has developed over the last 11 books to become what she has in book 12, however, she is only just starting to become what she is meant to become, where will that take us?
Can't believe Reyes done what he did and that Eleventh Grave in Moonlight ended with that cliffhanger!!
Bring on the next round!!
Unlike the turmoil in Curse of Tenth Grave, things felt a little more mellow. Say hello to snuggle time with Reyes and some traveling. Jones used these moments as a lesson for both Charley and the reader. We gain a better understanding of the true ...more
Humorous and captivating, with a healthy dose of mystery and passion threaded throughout, Eleventh Grave in Moonlight by Darynda Jones is a page-turner! Reyes and Charley's unique chemistry intensifies, so prepare yourself for some steamy moments. Unspoken fears and truths lead to a reality neither Charley or Reyes will be ready for. A MUST READ!!! Brace yourself! Jones delivers one of her best and most shocking nail-biting endings yet! Happy Reading!
This time around things are a bit slower for Charlie, at least in Charley’s world which is really saying something because the girl is always in the middle of something. During her “down” time she’s ta ...more
Charley is one of my favorite characters! She’s sarcastic, loyal, and tough.
In this book Charley begins by trying to figure out how to release innocent souls from a hell dimension and arrives at a plan that has her usual results. Bad.
Meanwhile she battles a cult, works to rescue missing children and work on her marriage.
Excellent book! 😊💕📖
Ok, so I've slept on it a bit. Not much re ...more
My review will probably saying nothing new compared to all the five star review for this book or any other book in this series. Most Likely it will say how awesome this book or this series is or how Jones has godly writing skills as she sucks us all into Charley Davidson’s world so deep we’re left in a worse case of reading slump. It also say how funny, emotional, nail biting and how sexy this book is. In truth, every word is meant with a passion and I’m sure I speak for everyone in that gro...more
