Early Review: The Curse of Tenth Grave by Darynda Jones

The Curse of Tenth Grave: Charley Davidson and Reyes Farrow

(Charley Davidson #10)

The Curse of Tenth Grave by Darynda Jones

Expected publication: June 28th 2016


As a Part-time PI and fulltime 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 murder, 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…

I adore the Charley Davidson world.. It's one of my favorite urban fantasy series mostly due to its humor. This book picks up about a week after the last one left off. Charley is still doing her, taking cases, pissing people off and making people laugh.

In the last book her learned some disturbing information about her beloved Reyes... At first I was going to be pissed for her yet again leaving Reyes in the dark about something important, and she does, but she's smarter about it this time. So it feels like she's growing as a character and in maturity. Maybe motherhood has changed her. Beep is still a central theme in this book as they concentrate on keeping her safe. To do so, Charley has to trap at least two evil gods.. The third, remains up in the air on whether they are a true threat or not. At the end Charley makes a bold declaration which elevated her bad ass status. Overall, with all the other installments in this series we are taken on an entertaining roller coaster ride. I definitely recommend this series to anyone that likes to laugh.
