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 fianc� 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!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 No Body is a Great Name and the Story Will WOW You (as always) 21 octobre 2014
Par Douglas C. Meeks - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Where to start with this one as much new stuff is injected and questions unanswered as ones from last book that were answered. This seems to be heading for a big finale someplace in the next few books so it is almost becoming a very involved serialized story and kinda has a big finale getting lined up out there in a future book.

WARNING!!!!! If you have NOT read Sixth Grave on the Edge then STOP reading, this will be a spoiler that you don't want to read.

Now that I have your attention I should mention that you do not want to read the synopsis of book 8 either until you finish this book

OK, on the last page of Sixth Grave on the Edge we find out that our favorite Grim Reaper Charley is pregnant (which kinda came as a surprise to everyone), in this book keeping herself and the baby alive have become a primary mission for Reyes(and Charley to a somewhat lesser extent it seems at times). 12 hellhounds have been released from Hell and they want Charley, Reyes does not know how to kill them (and neither does anyone else), add to this plot, Charley's Dad is missing, add to that people who are writing suicide notes but leaving no body (hence the title). It is a real party for Charley and crew.

While Reyes would like nothing better than to lock her in her apartment with him as 24 hour guard, Charley is having none of it because she will go crazy if she even tries. Unfortunately, it does lead to some moments of TSTL for Charley which does not really help her cause.

A newswoman is getting a bit too close to Reyes for her comfort and jealously looks bad on almost anyone, Charley is no exception. Reyes wants her to stay away from the newswoman because he feels something is "not right" about her but when it comes to scummy reporters how do you tell.

I can tell you that I laughed more at this book than the last one which I thought was hilarious, the beauty is that Darynda Jones manages to do this without taking the edge off of the serious parts of this book, takes a clever touch to accomplish that piece of writing.

There are several surprises in this book, a couple are held to the last chapter, you will have a few questions that obviously are not going to get answered until next book.

The overarching story is for all practical purposes being serialized and while i have no problem with that it DOES mean that you cannot even read the synopsis for future books or you WILL get some spoilers that should be discovered while reading the book.

Bottom Line: This is a 5 Star novel, I will subtract a half a star just because I already knew a big spoiler just from reading the synopsis for the next book Eighth Grave After Dark. Still you gotta get this but again, books 6-7-8 look like they HAVE to be read in order or you will not be able to appreciate them as much as previous novels (which still should be read in order but was not a 100% requirement). There are a couple of quick plots that Charley takes care of that add to the entertainment level of this book. So 4.5 Stars and highly recommended.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Too little progression and evolution for the cost 23 octobre 2014
Par S. Brown - Publié sur Amazon.com

In this installment we do learn a lot more about charlie and her origins/purpose, but the series, as usual, continues to go at such a slow pace. Especially considering these books cost around 10-12 bucks!!! Nothing has changed about Charlie's character, and i therefore, still don't like her. Moreover, this dislike continues to grow with each installment. She's still silly, selfish, and has no self preservation. But what really irks me is how she treats Reyes. This is the first time in reading a book that i really want the male lead to just dump the female lead and move on. She's too much, a total air head, and she never takes anything seriously (What?!!!). She's pregnant, but yet has no sense to be more safe, especially since she's being hunted. Moreover, her continued anger towards Reyes for trying to protect her and THE BABY makes her look stupid! She comes off as too whiny, and childish to me. Her character is supposed to be a grown woman isn't she?!!! What grown woman rushes into danger while pregnant, then gets angry at her fiance for trying to protect her, and wanting to be around her so he can guard her? Sheesh, it's about time Charlie grew some brain cells.

Then there is the writing. In the beginning the humor was good, and I enjoyed it. I did at times thought there were scenes that should've been written with a more serious air or vibe, but it wasn't completely jarring. However, as the story progresses i find the excessive use of humor to be nothing but filler. Especially since they never talk about anything important. It's just all babbling. Sigh...I like the series. And honestly, I don't know if i'll read the next one. Charlie just doesn't seem to be evolving as a character, and it's all the same just different cases and very little information about the major plot (her origins, the prophecy, her daughter, lucifer, etc.). It seems a waste to continue.

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.

Seventh Grave picks up right where the previous book leaves off. Charley is preggo with baby girl aka: Beep who is destined to defeat Reyes father in the big final showdown. Needless to say gramps is not pleased and has sent the Twelve to kill Charley and Beep. Even though she's being hunted, Charley is still running around trying to solve cases and look for her missing dad while also being harassed by her deceased ex bff, Jessica. Annnd... to make all this craptastic hellhound danger worse, she decides to give up drinking coffee because the caffeine is bad for Beep. Yes, you heard me, CHARLEY DAVIDSON IS GIVING UP COFFEE. The horror! Needless to say it does not go well, lol, and I cringed alongside of her as she went through the horrendous withdrawal symptoms. Reyes is his usual smexilicious, panty melting self and I just adore how fiercely he loves Charley. They are both keeping secrets from each other which makes for some conflict as they adjust to the idea of being parents and deal with the threat from the twelve.

Charley learns more about her powers that she wields (mostly) from the Dealer that we met in the previous book and we also learn a little more about Mr. Wong. The Dealer is one of my new favorite characters and he plays a big part of the book, I am very much looking forward to seeing more of him. Cookie freaking rocks!! She is the best best friend ever and I just adore her and Ubie together.

The storyline was flawless and I was on a roller coaster ride with my emotions while reading, hilarious moments that had me cracking up one minute, then some super sweet moments as well as a heartbreaking death that I was totally not expecting. So far we've just dealt with Hell and demons but we get a sneak peak of the inhabitants of Heaven and they are not too happy with what Charley has been up to lately. I'm so excited to see what comes next that I'm going to be on pins and needles waiting for Eighth Grave After Dark to come out!! So go, grab your copy as soon as possible! For a fast paced read with a kick ass heroine and a scrumptiously sexy hero, I totally recommend reading Seventh Grave!
