Présentation de l'éditeur

It's lucky number seven for Darynda Jones in her bestselling Charley Davidson series! Following up from Sixth Grave on the Edge, Charley's back and she's ready to reap . . .

Lead me not into temptation.
Follow me instead! I know a shortcut!
--T-shirt

Twelve. Twelve of the deadliest beasts ever forged in the fires of hell have escaped, and they want nothing more than to rip out Charley Davidson's jugular and serve her body to Satan for dinner. So there's that. But Charley has more on her plate than a mob of testy hellhounds. For one thing, her father has disappeared, and as she retraces his last steps she learns he was conducting an investigation of his own, one that has Charley questioning everything she's ever known about him. Add to that an ex-BFF who is haunting her night and day, a rash of suicides that has authorities baffled, and a drop-dead sexy fiancé who has attracted the attentions of a local celebrity, and Charley is not having the best week of her life. But all of that barely scratches the surface of her problems . . .

Recent developments have forced her to become a responsible adult. To conquer such a monumental task, she's decided to start small. Really small. She gets a pet. But how can she save the world against the forces of evil when she can't even keep a goldfish alive?

A tad north of hell, a hop, skip, and a jump past the realm of eternity is a little place called Earth, and Charley Davidson, grim reaper extraordinaire, is determined to do everything in her power to protect it.

We're doomed.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 3.5 un peu trop de répétitions et de longueurs 30 novembre 2014
Par Poison TOP 500 COMMENTATEURS
Format:Format Kindle
Voici le septième tome de la série Charley Davidson. Difficile de ne pas trop en dire, mais une chose est sûre : Charley a du mal à devenir adulte. Elle essaye, assez fort, mais le naturel revient au galop. Heureusement, elle pourra compter sur Reyes et sur Cookie pour l'épauler et la soutenir.
Reyes est bien entendu craquant, et leur relation est pleine de tendresse et d'humour, pourtant il y a trop de répétitions de la part de l'auteur pour nous dire à quel point il est beau, sexy, la cible de toutes les femmes, etc. Presque à chaque apparition, il y a toute la liste, et ça lasse. On le sait, ce n'était pas utile d'insister autant, surtout au 7ème tome !
Du côté de l'enquête, elle est un peu mise de côté au vu de tout ce qu'il se passe dans la vie de Charley et s'est bien dommage. On avance assez peu dans chaque intrigue. C'est dommage cette impression de sur-place.
La fin, en revanche, débloque certaines choses, entre autre l'enquête du père de Charley, mais pose de nouvelles questions. Cela commence à devenir rageant !
On ne sait toujours pas quelles sont les intentions de l'auteur mais il serait temps que les éléments de la fin de la saga se mettent en place.
La série est toujours un plaisir à lire, j'aime aussi les relations entre Charley, Cookie (et l'oncle de Charley), Reyes et les autres, mais je préférerai que la série s'arrête avant qu'elle ne me lasse.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Grim reaper pandemonium & audiobook magic 21 octobre 2014
Par RabidReads - Publié sur Amazon.com
*** Review may contain spoilers for previous installments in series. ***

Charley Davidson is back for her seventh round of cray-cray situations, murder n’ mayhem, and grim reaper pandemonium, only this time her snark is the sole weapon in her arsenal because she has to do it all sans caffeine. Fortunately for her, she has a strong crew of secondary characters at her back, and in this installment she’s going to need every single one of them! This audiobook was emotionally taxing; I went from laughing out loud at the heroine’s lunacy, to weeping with joy about that THING we’ve all been waiting for, to blubbering over the death of one of their own. But, this novel wasn’t just about the feels because it also featured mucho plot threads, wonderful epiphanies, and made some pretty significant mythology headway. The overall experience was rendered even more perfect with the delightful Lorelei King at the narrative reins.

I like listening to these books because they are light, fun, and typically don’t require much thought—ear candy at its best! SEVENTH GRAVE AND NO BODY changed all of that because every chapter, while entertaining, was also crucial to this series’ overall story arc. Charley solved a ten year old case in fifteen minutes, and even though that initial plot thread was quickly overshadowed by several others, it was still super important because it was related to the twelve, and pulled agent Carlson into Davidson’s inner circle. Then, the priest’s minor haunting episode brought Heaven and Hell to the fore by introducing the Vatican and bounty hunter angles. And finally, don’t even get me started on the suicide kidnappings and Silvia Star! There were a lot of seemingly unrelated incidents in this installment, however upon closer inspection every single one was part of the bigger picture. Genius!

Charley never fails to crack me up with her t-shirt sayings, eccentric naming habits, and outlandish sense of humour. Her lack of progression as a character used to frustrate me, but the evolution of her abilities, and that of her sidekicks more than make up for her shortcomings in that area. Cookie was as terrific as always, and it appears as though her daughter, Amber, will play a pivotal role in this story as well. Reyes isn’t quite as evil as he used to be, but both Charley and The Dealer definitely kept him on his toes. I actually got a kick out of Swopes for once, and even Ubie managed to surprise me. There were unfortunately two deaths in this installment; Belvedere’s which was a given (haha!), and one other that broke my heart.

Darynda Jone’s writing style is without a doubt addictive; however it’s Lorelei King’s voice that keeps me coming back for more. She adds a whole new level to Charley with her saucy tone, and uncanny ability to switch from silly to serious in the same breath. I gave this audiobook five stars, but it should be noted that the narrator earned at least one of them all by herself thanks to her A+ delivery. It takes longer to listen than it does to read, yet with King in your ear those extra hours feel like a gift instead of a burden. This novel was one of the most suspenseful in this series to date, and that aspect really came through in Lorelei’s performance via her character voices, and the high impact action scenes.

SEVENTH GRAVE AND NO BODY was audiobook magic, plain and simple!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Review: Seventh Grave and No Body by Darynda Jones 12 novembre 2014

Format:Format Kindle
**Spoiler Alert!! If you haven't read book six this review will contain spoilers**

Entering into the seventh installment of Darynda Jones wickedly funny and smoking hot Charley Davidson series, Seventh Grave and No Body, picks up not long after book six-Sixth Grave From The Edge- ended. Charley Davidson, Grim Reaper in training and P.I. extraordinaire, is pregnastic and affianced by non other than the sex on a stick hottie son of Satan-Reyes Farrow. But if you think any of this will finally slow Charley down, you’d lose that bet. Already ready to kill due to lack of the exceptional goodness only highly caffeinated beverages can give her, Charley has to deal with twelve homicidal hellhounds, a series of suicide notes with no bodies, a misplaced father, and a fiance who had decided to stick extra close to her but not in a fun “let’s do some mattress dancing” kind of way. As the bodies and clues add up, Charley finds herself once again standing toe to toe with the good, the bad, and the stinky.

Once again, Jones has left readers giggling and shaking their heads at the antics of her eccentric protagonist Charley Davidson and her band of strange and deadly cohorts. A strong character driven series, Jones kidnaps the reader and takes them on a crazy adventure teeming with solid storylines, multiple subplots, high octane action, unusual characters, and laugh out loud dialogue. A slow but steady advancement of the arc and world building keeps you entertained without the feeling Jones is trying to rush you along to the end.

Charley has a lot on her plate; the most important and dangerous being the twelve hellhounds sent to kill her. Hellhounds who can come and go like the wind so you never know where they are until they take a bite out of you. This places Charley in a predicament as she has jobs to do and refuses to sit at home waiting for the threat to be nullified BUT she is also carrying a very special child who will be the world’s savior in the future. She needs to slow down but Charley only knows two speeds…fast and super fast. Observations are made that clue us into the possible motivations behind Charley and her antics.

This becomes a serious point of contention between her and her fiance-Reyes Farrow. He is consumed by his need to see her safe and uses everything in his disposal to facilitate that. I like that we see a significant change in Reyes this installment. We are granted more insight into his thoughts and emotions, something that hasn’t been as evident in past books. He shows us a vulnerability that wasn’t there before. Even with the added conflict between Reyes and Charley, Jones answers fans requests for more one on one time between this unlikely couple with well written and extra hot love scenes that will steam up e-readers. Add in the breakdown of Reyes’ emotional barriers and we finally get to see the intense connection that Jones has pushed towards in the series.

New and old characters are back in full force to help round out the story, move it along, and keep us in stitches. Osh, Garrett, and a ghostly cast of spies try their best to keep Charley alive. Amber, Quinton, Strawberry Shortcake, and more make appearances when needed. Cookie is still backing Charley one hundred percent though her time now is split between hooking Charley up with her “blood of Satan” while sharing snuggle time with Charley’s Uncle Ubie. Cookie and Charley’s relationship still remains one of my favorite aspects of this series. Friends, neighbors, and co workers, their strong connection never waivers. They are two peas in a pod and the love between them is epic. They have a wonderful friendship that shines throughout the series.

My issues, which I have addressed multiple times throughout the series, are still alive and kicking. Charley’s immaturity, the increasing one liners, and her need to personalize things. It all becomes overpowering at times. Charley gives cutesy names to everything and I do mean everything. Re-naming her body parts is a little strange, but now she’s on to appliances and furniture. I found myself confused to whom or what she was speaking to. She also doesn’t seem to be “growing” emotionally anymore. Still treating life as one big Vegas act, she has tunnel vision when it comes to herself. While she’ll do anything for anyone, there were times I felt she was being purposely obstinate. Like a child, she tries hard to be an adult and taken seriously, but ends up running headlong into danger just to spite those around her. The direction the series seems to be taking shows readers Charley needs to grow up and think about how her actions endanger herself and everyone around her.

Multiple story lines twist and tangle around one another, offering clues to bigger dangers heading Charley’s way. Jones wraps up the main conflict, leaving just enough open to ensure we need book eight pronto. Fans will rejoice in getting a rare Reyes POV at the end-though I understand this is only available in print copies.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Words cannot do this installment justice, there's nothing out there like it 22 octobre 2014
Par A Book a Day - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
When I finished reading this book, I thought to myself, how did this book get even better than the last? I'll leave the credit all to Ms. Darynda Jones who clearly has one Hell of a plan for this series, pun intended. If you've never read the series before, you do not want to start here, and there's no reason for it. You'll start at the beginning and won't come up for air until you're all caught up in no time. The Charley Davidson series is easily the most unique story around, that is also clever, funny, engaging, entertaining, fast paced, and simply magical which rides on the fringes of urban fantasy, paranormal romance, and mystery. If you haven't read previous stories, then this book will have spoilers of previous installments, so if you don't want to know, stop here.

Book 7 picks up right where we left off with Sixth Grave from the Edge and Ms. Jones does not drag this story out but moves full steam ahead in her usual fashion to progress the story forward. Charley is now engaged, expecting a baby girl who's prophesized to be the fall of Satan, and is being hunted by the Hounds of Hell, but she still has a job to do and it seems more and more people keep getting in the way of her living her life. There are several mysteries taking place once again, but Charley manages to clear some up early on, while others take place throughout the story. Most prominent is that there are a string of "suicides" where no bodies can actually be found and Charley hasn't received any visits from the dearly departed to truly know what's going on. As she tries to investigate, she has Reyes on her heels at every step, and although they are constantly clashing wills, I still find the relationship between the Son of Satan and the Grim Reaper to be the most compelling couple in fiction, and that's saying something for you Kate and Curran or Cat and Bones fans.

The story is written in its typical Attention Deficit fashion where Charley is easily distracted by caffeine withdrawal, practicing motherhood on a goldfish, and other stray thoughts that constantly pop into her head, that always keep me chuckling and with the deeper than usual revelations, sacrifices, and, yes, losses, the style of writing was very helpful in keeping me from weeping. Charley learns alot more about her abilities and we as readers, learn alot more about the other characters from Amber to The Dealer that are clearly in Charley's life as part of a much bigger picture. As the events unfold, we're left with a very different Charley Davidson and I cannot wait to see how her vengeance will unfold.

3 1/2 stars This was a tough book to rate. I loved some things and was irritated by others.

*WARNING* If you have not read Sixth Grave on the Edge, there will be spoilers ahead.

It’s getting to the point where something big needs to be revealed. Little clues keep being dropped about the twelve and Mr. Wong amongst other things. There is no way to know where it is all going yet. This series is good, but some issues need to be resolved to spice things up. All of this needs to lead up to a jaw dropping moment. That is what I'm waiting for, but I was hoping that would have happened in this book.

Just like that last book, there was not a strong plot. Most of the book focused on Charley, Reyes and the baby. A good portion of it was about the twelve that are after Charley. She’s barely investigating anything for her PI business. She was working on an investigation, but it was shoved way into the background to the point where I nearly forgot about it until the end where it was resolved. Charley didn’t really do the work anyway. She constantly asked Cookie to do everything for her.

Slowly but surely the circumstances have changed for most of the characters. The biggest thing has been the change in the characters themselves except for Charley. She hasn’t changed a bit as far as her personality goes, but she is gaining strength with her powers. For the first time ever I actually liked Swopes! He didn’t give off his usual mean vibe. There was an unexpected change in Amber (Cookie’s daughter) that will change her life. Reyes has changed the most. He’s still an adorable bad boy, but he’s lost his edge somewhat now that he’s with Charley. I miss the brazen daring side of him although it’s for the best that he has settled down considering the direction his life is going.

Charley has no interest in growing up. She’s ditzy and flakey at times; it’s part of her charm and humor, but sometimes it’s too much. She is pregnant now. She has got to live another 8 months if she has any hopes of this baby being born. She threw herself into one dangerous situation after another and got mad at Reyes for being concerned. I don’t want Charley to stop being Charley, but I wish she would at least take being a mom seriously. I think this bothers me so much because I’m a mom. I know that good parents can do the best they can and still screw things up. With Charley’s haphazard behavior, it’s hard to believe the baby will be born let alone reach adulthood.

Overall, I enjoyed the book. There was some good humor. Although the story lacked cohesion in the middle, it was really good at the end. There were some nail biting moments while I was wondering if some characters were going to die. Charley managed to bring more unexpected trouble upon herself, which will be a problem later on. Something sad did happen at the end. Charley will be hurt and probably looking for revenge.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Time to bury this in its grave.. 7 novembre 2014
Par AyJay - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I bought my kindle version of this on the day that it was published, but it then took me over a week to gather up the inner strength to actually read it as I find Charley "At least I wasn't going down alone. I'd drag everyone with me that I could" Davidson selfish, spiteful & childish, and as the book is in her POV there is no escape. Plus her constant humour injections are so over-the-top that this series has started to seem like a parody. As for Reyes: he is manipulative, has severe anger issues, and is suffocatingly controlling. But despite his many faults, I have actually been finding him less of an irritant over the past couple of books - probably because he now calls Charley out on her crap, and she is using up most of my ire.

Another ongoing dislike that I've mentioned before is watching the dysfunctional relationship between Charley and Reyes trawl along; Charley just bangs on [and on] about how hot Reyes is, and that is apparently all the justification we need for their relationship - there's not been any significant development to derail my thinking that she is just simply in lust with Reyes. No deep thoughts about any feelings she has for him, it's just he's hot, phworrr. Following their relationship just leaves me wondering who will snap and kill the other one first...

However the bigger problem I had with this book is that there were over a dozen plot threads (no, I'm not exaggerating) that were casually picked up and dropped again as we crazily zigzag between them. I found that I can't fully separate what's important and worth remembering from what is just filler, and I now struggle to remember every character and their relationships with Charley - there's too much pointless waffle to wade through. Plus; most of the subplots plots seem underdeveloped, and failed to make any impact on me. If the author had picked one or two subplots and focused solely on them then I would have really enjoyed this book. But as it is it seems sloppy and halfassed, as if the author became bored with whatever she was focusing on at the time, so just left it all undone and picked up another subplot to amuse herself with for an hour or two.

I've read every book in this series and I kind of wished I didn't, but I couldn't stop because I just had to see if everything will all turn out to be a bad dream or something. The problem with these books is that I saw real potential for growth in the beginning, so the promise of what could be kept me coming back to see if there's any improvement, or at least see how it will conclude. However now that I've found out that this particular series has now been extended again (to at least nine books), I've given up on it as I get no enjoyment out of reading these books anymore - reading them feels like a chore.
