Grim Reaper Charley Davidson is back in the final installment of Darynda Jones’ New York Times bestselling paranormal series!
Charley Davidson, Grim Reaper extraordinaire, is pissed. She’s been kicked off the earthly plain for eternity – which is the appropriate amount of time to make a person starkraving mad. But someone’s looking out for her, and she’s allowed to return after a mere hundred years in exile. Is it too much to hope for that not much has changed? Apparently it is. Bummer.
She’s missed her daughter, she’s missed Reyes, and Beep, but now that she’s back on earth, it’s time to put to rest burning questions that need answers. What happened to her mother? How did she really die? Who killed her? And are cupcakes or coffee the best medicine? It all comes to a head in an epic showdown between good and evil in this final smart and hilarious novel.
It has been a while since my last review, WordPress seems to be very different since my previous posting…
Summoned to Thirteenth Grave is the last book of the Charley Davidson series. I have enjoyed Ryes’s badness and Charley’s quirkiness throughout the series, and finally, the ending is here. We learned more about Charley and where she is from as well as interesting family secrets. However, it’s painful for me to say, I was expecting more. The end of this book was lukewarm and not at all excited. The big ending, the apocalypse was often interrupted by the other case that Charley was trying to solve. Which was frustrating to read, and makes the end seriously underwhelming. I am assuming there will be a spin-off series of Beep because the last few books of the series was a set up to Beep’s story. And I felt that is why the focus of the story plot was a lineup of the introduction to Beep’s army. In the end, the big battle was not resolved.
Overall, I would still recommend reading this series but don’t expect an epic ending to the series.
