Additional information of the “prophecy” was revealed in this book, though we are still not quite getting the whole picture. Conveniently the one person may be able to translate the prophecy drop dead of natural causes? So we are again left in darker and more riddles.
It wouldn’t be a Charley Davidson book, if trouble didn’t find their way to Charley’s doorstep, though this time it was about Reyes, again. Which seem to be the recurring themes, that I am not too keen on. This was another zealot of Reyes gone wrong again, not only I thought it was a diversion to the main plot, but I am seriously so over the fanatic females and males that are absurd and possessively over Reyes. Yes, he is irresistible and unduly sexy, because he is the son of Satan, which means he has special supernatural pheromones that will allure all females, and sometime even males. But that part has been well-established, and mentioned over and over in the past six books, at this point I think it’s getting rather ridiculous.
Meanwhile, the 12 Hellhounds are haunting Charley and no one includes Reyes knows how to defeat those bloody suckers. In fact, they are having their behinds kick to the curb in every encounter they have with the hounds. Which is just another issue on top of the weird suicide case Charley was investigating. I loved that Reyes believes in Charley even getting a little angry when Charley is having doubts about being a good mother. Reyes pretty much out was out of his mind in this book, althought it was mostly out of fear of losing Charley and their baby. I am glad Charley was slowly getting the hang of her power, we heard so much about how special and how Charley can do anything she wants. Glad to finally have some new developments on her abilities and see them in action in this book.
While I have been a fan of Charley’s character since book one, but current circumstance may require Charley to be mature and seriously for once. Not only Charley is facing rather serious, life-treating, end of the world circumstances. But she is also pregnant with a daughter, whom has a prophecy said she may be destined to save the world. But Charley will be Charley, she was still quite reckless and runs straight into danger as always.
It turned out Jessica was not an issue for me in this book (I was afraid she would become one), though she can be annoying sometimes, and of course she was in love with Reyes (who isn’t, really). But I did like her part in this book, I thought it ended with a meaningful side story.
Another little cliffhanger in the end (it was said), and we left with more mysteries on our hands. I was hoping we would finally have a serious progress on the prophecy part, but that didn’t really happened. Although I am really curious and enjoying the new development of the series, and the more the story reveals, the more I wonder what will happen next.
Seventh Grave and No Body still came fully stock with actions, mystery, humors, and sexiness that we all love in Charley Davidson series. Overall I had a pleasant time reading this book, as the series progress it just gets better and better, despite there were parts that I am not overly fond with. But the parts I enjoyed most definitely outweighs them.
Two Charley Davidson books in one year, you think I would be satisfied, but no I need the next book now!
