As a Part-time PI and fulltime grim reaper, Charley Davidson has asked a lot of questions throughout her life: Why can I see dead people? Who is the hot supernatural entity following me? How do I get gum out of my sister’s hair before she wakes up? But, “How do I trap not one malevolent god, but three?” was never among them. Until now. And since those gods are on earth to kill her daughter, she has little choice but to track them down, trap them, and cast them from this dimension.

There’s just one problem. One of the three stole her heart a very long time ago. Can the Razer, a god of absolute death and destruction, change his omniscient spots, or will his allegiances lie with his brothers?

Those are just a few of the questions Charley must answer, and quick. Add to that a homeless girl running for her life, an innocent man who’s been charged with murder, and a pendant made from god glass that has the entire supernatural world in an uproar, and Charley has her hands full. If she can manage to take care of the whole world-destroying-gods thing, we’re saved. If not, well…

Oh, how I love this series! Honestly, I always have this sliver of fear every time a new book is released. We’re up to ten books now, and I’m afraid that one of these times I’ll be severely disappointed or find that I’ve fallen out of love with the series. But nope, hasn’t happened. Not even close.

What I love:

♥ Charley. Duh. I love how silly and funny she is, plus has the biggest heart. Yet, she’s super fierce! Don’t not mess with those she loves … actually she’s pretty protective over strangers too. Anyway, she’s one badass chick. Also, I love how she holds most of her cards close to the vest. Just because it seems like she doesn’t know what’s going on at times, she’s clever and puts the pieces together, revealing them when the time is right.

♥ I really like how we’re still discovering more and more about who Charley really is and the overall storyline. Bombs continue to be dropped!

♥ Ah, Charley and Reyes. The chemistry … yowza! I have to say though, I wish the constant talk/thoughts about how sexy he is was cut back a little. It gets kind of old.

♥ I want to adopt all of the secondary character! Seriously, they are one of the best cast of characters there is. I definitely have a major soft spot (or two *wink*) for Osh. I desperately need him to devour some souls in the next book, because that shit is sexy as hell! Besides that, though, the loyalty runs deep with this group; so deep I get a little emotional at times because it’s so moving.

♥ There are always multiple storylines going on in each book. I’m glad she’s still doing her P.I. thing – life goes on – even though big changes are happening. But what’s cool, is each thread always weaves into the overall storyline in some way, no matter how minute. There’s a reason for everything.

♥ That ending …

      *sigh* Forget my previous reply. My reading comprehension is on the fritz – I need sleep. But I get what you’re saying now, and totally agree!

      • Ya know, when I first wrote that comment, I wrote that I wanted to age Osh… so it’s not you! I just hope we get to see the future 🙂 Yeah, you got what I was trying to say. I suck at words and English in general!!!

  1. I have that same fear with some of my favorite series that are long running. I don’t know how many more books are set for the Charley Davidson series, but I think she just signed a contract for another two or three books. I haven’t read this one yet. I’m waiting on the audio. I must have Lorelei King’s voice tell me this story. I hope to be tackling it very soon. 🙂
