“Ever since Reyes Farrow escaped from a hell dimension in which Charley Davidson accidentally trapped him, the son of Satan has been brimstone-bent on destroying the world his heavenly Brother created. His volatile tendencies have put Charley in a bit of a pickle. But that’s not the only briny vegetable on her plate. While trying to domesticate the feral being that used to be her husband, she also has to deal with her everyday life of annoying all manner of beings – some corporeal, some not so much – as she struggles to right the wrongs of society. Only this time she’s not uncovering a murder. This time she’s covering one up.
Add to that her new occupation of keeping a start-up PI venture – the indomitable mystery-solving team of Amber Kowalski and Quentin Rutherford – out of trouble and dealing with the Vatican’s inquiries into her beloved daughter, and Charley is on the brink of throwing in the towel and becoming a professional shopper. Or possibly a live mannequin. But when someone starts attacking humans who are sensitive to the supernatural world, Charley knows it’s time to let loose her razor-sharp claws. Then again, her number one suspect is the dark entity she’s loved for centuries. So the question becomes: Can she tame the unruly beast before it destroys everything she’s worked so hard to protect?”
Oh Charley, I have missed you so. This was the 12th book in the Charley Davidson series and was an incredibly entertaining read. Really there is only one Charley Davidson and she is always incredibly quirky and hilarious. I loved getting to visit this world again and love where the story is going.
I listened to this on audiobook and the audiobook was a delight to listen to. King does an excellent job narrating and makes these books even more fun.
Reyes was sent into the God Glass but returned as something different. Charley is trying to figure out how to get the old Reyes back. In the middle of all of this Charley gets called in to help with some strange murders; the victims all appear to be sensitive to the supernatural world.
I loved all the wonderful characters and the crazy, fast pace of this novel. I always wonder if there will be another series of books featuring Charley’s daughter in them.
I was a bit frustrated with the ending; it seems to be almost the same as what happened at the end of book 11. Now I have to wait forever to see what happens in book 13…arg.
Overall this was an amazing read, this series has been so much fun. I would definitely recommend to those who enjoy light-hearted investigative urban fantasy.
