Twelve. Twelve of the deadliest beasts ever forged in the fires of hell have escaped onto our plane, and they want nothing more than to rip out the jugular of Charley Davidson and serve her lifeless, mangled 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 the more she retraces his last steps, the more 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.

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.

The Charley Davidson series is not only my favorite series, but it is my favorite series on audio too.

In Seventh Grave and No Body, we see an even more protective Reyes. Charley’s affianced has handcuffed himself to her and that does not sit well with Charley. She attempts a few times to escape him and work her cases without an escort, and things go as they usually do. A little crazy.

Charley always ends up with a few different threads in the works, and this is no different. She is trying to avoid the twelve beasts of hell, find her father, deal with a wicked case of *gasp* jealousy, find out who is setting Reyes up and help solve the case of some missing little girls.

Charley is so much fun. Her relationships carry so much snark and sarcasm that you can’t help but laugh. She finds the good in characters that Reyes would prefer to rip spines out of. Charley might complain about Reyes’ protectiveness, but when it comes to her family and friends, she would do literally anything. To such a degree there were a couple of scenes where I was in absolute panic of what she would do. Charley also has a few more revelations of what she is actually capable of.

Seventh Grave and No Body is just another great thrill ride in the Charley Davidson world. We have crazy danger, sexy Reyes time and even some pretty devastating news. We leave off with everything in Charley’s world completely upside down. Eighth Grave cannot come fast enough!

As she has been with every book in this series, Lorelei Kings is truly amazing. She brings so much life and personality to these characters that you feel right in the world with Charley and the gang. This is one series you just have to get on audio.
