“As a part-time PI and full-time 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 murdering the daughter of a degenerate gambler, 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…”
This is the tenth book in the Charley Davidson series. The eleventh book in this series, Eleventh Grave in Moonlight, released early in 2017. This was an excellent continuation of the Charley Davidson series. So many interesting things happen in this book and all our favorite characters are here.
Charley is still recovering from her memory loss in the last book and is also reeling from the news that Reyes is actually one of the evil Gods she is supposed to destroy. This is causing things between Charley and Reyes to become extremely strained.
I loved that this book really gets into the malevolent gods that Charley is supposed to destroy. We learn a lot more about the history of this evil threesome and the role Charley plays in their past. Additionally there is another contained mystery involving a runaway girl and an innocent man that is being blamed for the murder of his girlfriend.
There is always a lot going on in these books but I am always impressed at how nicely all the storylines come together and are wrapped up. I am continually surprised by how much I enjoy each and every book in this series.
Overall this was an amazing addition to the Charley Davidson series. I have been loving this series and it’s quirky characters. I have been enjoying it even more now that the main storyline involving Charley’s divinity is really start to make a lot of progress. I would recommend the whole series to those who enjoy light-hearted urban fantasy.
