“Most girls might think twice before getting engaged to someone like Reyes Farrow – but Charley Davidson is not most girls. She’s a paranormal private eye and grim-reaper-in-training who’s known to be a bit of a hell-raiser, especially after a few shots of caffeine. Her beloved Reyes may be the only begotten son of evil, but he’s dark and sultry and deeply sexy and everything Charley could hope for. Really.
But when the FBI file on Reyes’ childhood happens to land into her lap, she can’t help herself: She opens it…and then the real fun begins. First, Charley finds a naked corpse riding shotgun in her car. Then, a man loses his soul in a card game. Throw in a deaf boy who sees dead people, a woman running from mobsters, and a very suspicious Reyes, and things can’t get any worse for Charley. Unless, of course, the 12 Beasts of Hell are unleashed….”
This is the sixth book in the Charley Davidson series. The eleventh book in this series releases the end of January. I think this series keeps getting better and better. I love that the storyline is getting broader and more interesting. Of course there is a ton of humor in here and I continue to love Charley’s off the wall comments.
I listened to this on audiobook again…I am just absolutely hooked on these audiobooks. King does an awesome job narrating and continues to make this series rock even more on audiobook than it would on paper. I definitely recommend listening to this series on audiobook if you enjoy audiobooks.
There is a ton going on in this book but Jones does a good job keeping track of all the separate story threads and making them come together in a unique way by the end of the story. The story is unpredictable, fast-paced, and continually intriguing.
The 12 Beasts of Hell have been released and things are about to get really really interesting for Reyes and Charley. We learn a lot more about Reyes’ past and more about Hell. Charley’s powers continue to grow and change.
There were points in this book where all the multiple storylines going almost got to be too much; however it never quite got to the point for me. Jones does such an excellent job weaving the story together that you really only realize how complex it’s all gotten when you stop to think about it.
Overall this was a fantastic continuation of the Charley Davidson series. I am really loving this series and I love it more with each book I read. I would definitely recommend this whole series to fans of light-hearted urban fantasy. It’s just been so much fun to read!
