Présentation de l'éditeur

Sometimes I wrestle my demons. Sometimes we just snuggle.
Bumper Sticker
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 Twelve Beasts of Hell are unleashed…Sixth Grave on the Edge is the sixth Charley Davidson novel from bestselling author Darynda Jones

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Un poil en dessous des précédents 12 juin 2014
Par Poison TOP 100 COMMENTATEURS
Format:Broché
J'ai pas mal attendu ce dernier tome des aventures de Charley. Notamment en raison de la fin du tome précédent qui nous laissait vraiment dans l'expectative ! Bon rassurez vous...Vous n'avez pas fini d'attendre ^^
Comme les opus précédents, Charley garde son côté très fantasque et pleine d'humour et de répartie. Pourtant, on sent qu'elle a gagné en maturité. Elle est un peu responsable et semble moins volatile, ce qui est un avancement positif. Elle réussit à grandir en restant drôle et attachante.
Du côté de l'intrigue, ça part un peu dans tous les sens avec beaucoup d’événements secondaires à traiter. En se dispersant de la sorte, l'auteur perd en profondeur pour traiter un maximum de choses. C'est dommage, je préfère une grosse intrigue et deux trois en parallèle, pas cinq ou six.
La vie personnelle de Charley suit le même chemin : entre son père, les flics et Reyes, on nous met l'eau à la bouche, sans jamais nous satisfaire totalement.
De plus, beaucoup de dénouements et de rebondissements sont prévisibles. Le dernier (par exempleà m'a semblé totalement évident.

Au final, c'est un roman que j'ai pris beaucoup de plaisir à découvrir, avec quelques réflexions géniales, mais un peu en dessous des autres. J'espère que le tome 7 remontera le niveau.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 As always it's perfect 28 mai 2014
Par ceres95
Format:Format Kindle
Charley must make a choice that can change her life but she hesitates. As always she have a lot of problems, a missing boy, a missing soul, a demon Dealer, her father, Cookie love life and Reyes of course. But in the end all will be good.
She is so funny, I like the way her brain works, she like Reyes but she have doubts. In this book Charley want to see Cookie happy with Uncle Bob and she will make all that is necessary so that's arrives. I like the relation between Charley and Cookie, they are so fun, charming and Cookie is always here to Charley.
Reyes is as always, so hot, sexy, protective and in this one I fall in love again and again. He is so nice with Charley, Cookie and Amber that I love him so much, he's the man of all my dreams.
"The wall scene" was so funny, it was so much fun.
I love this serie and I think that the 6 is better than the 5 which is better than the 4... And this end is so WHOA, I can't wait to read the next one because Darynda Jones is just the best author in the world, she has a real talent to describe the character, their feelings and the relation between each characters. All the books are great and I don't know what Darynda Jones will do with Charley and Reyes and all the others characters. I have the feeling that Quentin, Pari, the Dealer and Rockett will be part of something bigger and I like that.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 I loved 99% of this book 20 mai 2014
Par Jen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I loved 99% of this book. It’s funny and irreverent. The world-building is awesome. The characters are engaging. And the plot is completely entertaining. It was a great book. But that one percent that didn’t work for me was pretty significant. (I’ll get to that in a minute.)

If you haven’t read the previous books in this series, stop here. You need to start with First Grave on the Right. This review will reference spoilers from the previous books.

Like all readers, I opened the book, excited to find out whether Charley was going to accept Reyes’ proposal. Well, she’s considering it, but it’s with her typical levity. After all, she has other important things to think about too: like coffee… the naked ghost in her jeep… Cookie’s love life… and the backstory on Mr. Wong. This means the answer doesn’t come with the swiftness you might hope. It also means there is plenty going on to keep up the pace.

As always, Charley’s work as a PI plays a part in the story. And as always, she is working one mundane case and one supernatural case at the same time. Only here, her PI case is the supernatural investigation –and the regular bad-guy caper involves her personal life. In her paid case, a man is asking her to find the demon who he sold his soul to, so he can get it back. At the same time, she is trying to track down a woman in witness protection because some goons have threatened to go after Charley’s loved ones if she doesn’t. All this, while she tries to learn more about what it really means to be the grim reaper and to understand the prophecies that surround her and Reyes.

It’s a busy time. So busy you might be worried that we might miss out on some of the deliciousness that is Reyes Farrow. Fear not. He gets naked. Feel free to rejoice.

Unfortunately, it’s an element of the story involving Reyes that makes up that pesky 1% I told you about. You see, Darynda Jones tackles a rather hairy prophecy involving him –and it, well, it failed. (At least, for this reader.) I re-read the scene in question four times and I still don’t entirely understand what happened. And it’s pretty important. So that stinks.

But remember, 99% is pretty darn spectacular. There are major arc developments and another big ole’ hairy shocker of an ending. I’ll give Darynda her due. She always leaves me wanting more. If you’re not reading this series, you should be. It will make you laugh; it will light your fire; and it will keep you guessing until the very end.

Rating: B+

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Humor, Action, Sex and Mystery, What More Could You Want?? 20 mai 2014
Par Douglas C. Meeks - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
What can you say about these books, they are high on entertainment in all aspects. The mix of humor and action is amazing coupled with a host of characters you love to see, what's not to love .

Once again Charley is messing in places she probably should not be messing, she is playing matchmaker, researching Reyes background, trying to get a prophesy interpreted not to mention ghost of a dead guy in her car. All in a day's work for Charley the reaper.

While this installment in the series has a LOT of very serious things happening, it may be the one I laughed the most while reading (including those little tidbits at the start of each chapter).

We find out a lot more about Reyes background and we add yet another recurring character to the series it looks like. Can't be sure about his motives but he does come in handy and lest I forget, the last 2-3 pages will throw you for a loop. Enjoy reading , this is gonna be a bumpy ride.

The romance with Reyes is stepping up a notch, people breaking into her apartment (she really needs a security system by now), people threatening her life, this book has a bit of everything. I loved it so I have to give it 5 Stars for chaotic entertainment at its best.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Still love Charley, but this book aggravated me 28 mai 2014
Par Jen Twimom - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
My Rating: C+ Liked It, but I had issues
Originally posted at That's What I'm Talking About

Note: this story contains spoilers from earlier books in the series. In addition, there is a mild spoiler dealing with the open-ended marriage proposal from the previous book. If you don’t want to know how Charley deals with Reyes’ question, I’ve marked it below.

Sixth Grave on the Edge opens shortly after the conclusion of the previous book, with heroine Charley Davidson back in her baby - her bright red Wrangler, Misery. At the conclusion of the previous book, Misery was nearly destroyed, and I completely love how Charley describes each and every symptom and repair as if Misery was a human. And because this is Charley, you know things aren’t going to be anywhere near normal. This time around, Charley has a dead naked man in her front seat, and she is spying on the Foster Family as part of a cold case recon for FBI Agent Carson, a quasi-friend of Charley’s-someone she’s gotten to know over the course of her work as a PI. Long ago, a baby boy was kidnapped from the Fosters, and this cold case always bothered Agent Carson and her father. While Charley may be doing some recon work to help out, Charley already knows what happened to their missing child, since it is none other than her boyfriend, Reyes.

**Don't read this paragraph if you don't want to know about the marriage proposal**
Like most fans of the Charley Davidson series, I was anxiously awaiting the release of Sixth Grave on the Edge after the previous book ended with a marriage proposal on a sticky note. The reader finds out almost immediately that Charley has not given Reyes an answer, and because of this, Reyes is constantly getting in digs at Charlie stating with all questions to her “it’s a simple YES or NO.” I love that Charley calls Reyes her “almost fiancé.”
**End Spoiler**

Okay, so here’s the deal. This review was very difficult to write. On the surface, I enjoyed Sixth Grave on the Edge. Like all of the books in the series, this one is full of laugh-out-loud humor, impossible situations, and close friendships. The overall feel of the storylines was on target with normal Charley situations. I enjoyed the overall direction of the book and the various subplots - for the most part - and look forward to the upcoming seventh title.

Although the book had a good “feel,” I am disappointed at the volume of information and details presented. There were too many storylines. Some that added little to no value. Some that would have worked better if there wasn't so much else going on. Some that were started, but dropped without another mention before the end of the book. All of these points together made me frustrated and annoyed. Charley Davidson and her circle of friends are some of my favorite characters. Their banter and camaraderie make for an extremely fun, entertaining, and special series. However, as they say, "the devil is in the details," and when it comes to Sixth Grave on the Edge the sheer volume of detail is utterly devilish. My head felt like it was going to burst upon the introduction of each new storyline. I understand, and frankly adore, that Charley has ADD, and since the stories are all told from her perspective, the reader is subject to the zaniness that is her thought process. That is just part of what makes these books so enjoyable. But the bottom line is that even with meticulous note taking, I just couldn't keep up this time around.

While the number of issues I had with the various subplots is too numerous to outline, I want to point out a couple of the most egregious. First, the biggest dropped storyline involves Charley’s dad and stepmom. While Charley’s interactions with both characters are some of the first in this story: he is acting weird and she is begging for help and wanting the family to seek counseling, the characters never make a return appearance. So why even bring them up in this book?

Then there is the story involving one of Charley’s minor nemesis, Police Captain Eckert. He’s been tailing Charley, and when I found out why, I was beyond aggravated. First of all, what he was doing made me angry, but the why... I just shake my head. The biggest problem, however, is that there was no apparent point to the ENTIRE subplot. While it may be something that will change the dynamics of future investigations, it had no impact on any of the ongoing stories, and I felt that the entire plot could be removed from this book.

Finally, one of the better twists and storylines involves Charley’s teenaged ghost assistant, Angel. In every book, Angel is adamant that Charley not reveal his ghostly nature to his mom, even though she’s starting to figure it all out. This comes to a head in Sixth Grave on the Edge, and while I thought it was an interesting and well-played storyline, due to the sheer volume of other storylines - one of which that is way too similar to this one - Angel’s story felt misplaced and ill-timed.

If I had to pick out the primary mystery plotline, I would say it was the one that involved a money-laundering car dealer and his girlfriend. Although the story kind of sneaks up on the reader, it is a good one to follow. I enjoy how Charley’s mind puts all of the pieces together, even if she’s not one hundred percent correct. The climax of this plot creates a pretty harrowing situation, and I have a feeling (especially after the not-so-shocking-to-me ending) that the repercussions will reverberate throughout future stories.

Unfortunately, as much as I still love Charley, Reyes, Cookie, Ubie and all of the others, I was disappointed in much of how Sixth Grave on the Edge was written. I have already ranted on Twitter, but I am happy to discuss each of the various plots with other readers because maybe you will have a point-of-view better than mine. But each time I start wading through the details, I just feel overwhelmed and frustrated.

But there were definitely some good parts to the book, like the amazingly hot smex scene on top of Reyes’ car! Holy scorcher, Batman. And the plotline involving Ubie and Cookie was extremely entertaining. I also liked some of the progress made on other minor, on-going stories, even if I felt there were too many of them. This is why I write that I liked the “feeling” of Sixth Grave on the Edge, because if “feels” like all of the other books. Sadly, it just isn’t the same.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another amazing installment! 20 mai 2014
Par Victoria L. Wilson - Publié sur Amazon.com

From the first chapter in the first book of the Charley Davidson series, I was caught, hook, line and sinker. Darynda Jones has created a character in Charley that never fails to make me laugh out loud. But the truly amazing thing about Charley is the love and compassion that she envelopes around her friends and family. Book six is no different. In each installment we learn, along with Charley, a little more of her abilities, a little more of the prophecies surrounding her life. Darynda gives us just enough new information to intrigue us and keep us coming back for more. And then there is the love story between Charley and Reyes, the son of Satan. And I for one, can not get enough. Their scenes are so combustible they nearly set the pages of the book on fire.

When I turned the last page of Sixth Grave on the Edge I was so satisfied with the events of the book, and left longing for book seven. I can't wait to see what Darynda has in store for Charley, Reyes and her amazing group of friends.

I started reading this book this morning and couldn't put it down. I am so glad my friend talked me into trying this series (I thought it seemed silly/weird). When I started it, I read 4 books the first week, that was all that was out. Now I eagerly await each release, and am never disappointed. I love the characters and the story, and Charley's habit of naming everything never fails to make me smile, and sometimes makes me laugh out loud.
