Charley Davidson, Grim Reaper Extraordinaire, is back in this sexy, suspenseful novel of supernatural shenanigans.

 

When Charley is rudely awakened in the middle of the night by her best friend who tells her to get dressed quickly and tosses clothes out of the closet at her, she can't help but wonder what Cookie's up to. Leather scrunch boots with a floral miniskirt? Together? Seriously?

 

Cookie explains that a friend of hers named Mimi disappeared five days earlier and that she just got a text from her setting up a meet at a coffee shop downtown. They show up at the coffee shop, but no Mimi. But Charley finds a message on the bathroom wall. Mimi left a clue, a woman's name. Mimi's husband explains that his wife had been acting strange since she found out an old friend of hers from high school had been found murdered a couple weeks prior. The same woman Mimi had named in her message.

 

Meanwhile, Reyes Alexander Farrow (otherwise known as the Son of Satan. Yes. Literally) has left his corporeal body and is haunting Charley. He's left his body because he's being tortured by demons who want to lure Charley closer. But Reyes can't let that happen. Because if the demons get to Charley, they'll have a portal to heaven. And if they have a portal to heaven... well, let's just say it wouldn't be pretty. Can Charley handle hot nights with Reyes and even hotter days tracking down a missing woman? Will Cookie ever get a true fashion sense? And is there enough coffee and chocolate in the world to fuel them as they do?

 

Here is your signpost for the most hilarious listen of the summer: Second Grave on the Left.

Second Grave on the Left is book two in the Charley Davidson series by Darynda Jones.

 

The humor continues in this second installment of Charley Davidson. It’s over-the-top ridiculous, but so much fun. Expect to laugh out loud.

 

Charley is one unusual character. Her personality, fearlessness, and sauciness just add to the whole thing. Cookie is Charley’s friend, neighbor, and co-worker. She is a great sidekick. She’s got Charley’s back and brings her own humor into the mix. The main plot revolves around one of Cookie’s friends, so she’s taking a more active role in this investigation. I liked seeing more of Cookie and having her around with Charley.

 

I had fun with the different mysteries, yes, their is more then one thing going on. I also cried in some areas. I’m glad I don’t have to wait for the next book release; because the ending left me wanting more asap.

 

The Narrator, Lorelei King, brings Charley and all the characters to life. It’s memorable. Her witty tone and colorful reading add to the listeners enjoyment and bring’s the world and characters to life. I’m so adoring the audiobooks for this series.

 

I have to say Jones and King are a winning combo. I’m savoring the audiobooks for the Charley Davidson series. I recommend giving this series a listen. You certainly will have a good time!

Because I'm a completist
Gunmetal Magic - Ilona Andrews

Drat, barely a vampire cameo. Will need another book. No matter.

 

I'm not as invested in Andrea, much less in her hit-me/kiss-me relationship with Raphael, but I had fun. It's inevitable with any of Andrews' books. Fast pace, mythology tie ins, and badass characters all around are always good. And I'm closer in filling in the bits of Kate Daniel's world.

Erster Satz | Kevin Hearne: Gehämmert
Gehämmert: Die Chronik des Eisernen Druiden 3 - Kevin Hearne,Alexander Wagner,Friedrich Mader

Einer weit verbreiteten Meinung nach sind Eichhörnchen putzige kleine Wesen.

 

Wenn sie an diesem oder jenem Ast oder Baumstamm entlangwuseln, zeigen die Leute auf sie und rufen: "Ohhh, wie niiiiedlich!". Dabei nimmt ihre Stimme einen ganz süßlichen Tonfall an und schraubt sich in ein aufgeregtes Falsett empor. Doch ich kann Ihnen versichern, diese Tierchen sind nur niedlich, solange sie so klein sind, dass man drauftreten könnte. Wenn Sie jedoch einem verdammten Rieseneichhörnchen vom Format eines Betonmischfahrzeugs gegenüberstehen, dann verliert es einen beträchtlichen Teil seines Charmes.

Erster Satz | Kevin Hearne: Verhext
Verhext - Kevin Hearne,Alexander Wagner

Du brauchst nur einen Gott zu erschlagen, und schon wollen plötzlich alle möglichen Leute mit dir reden.

 

Paranormale Versicherungsvertreter mit speziellen "Gottesschlächter"- Lebensversicherungen. Scharlatane mit Rüstungen, die hundertprozentigen Schutz gegen Götter bieten sollen, und mit Mietangeboten für außerweltliche Geheimverstecke. Vor allem aber andere Götter, die dir erstens zu deiner Tat gratulieren, dich zweitens davor warnen, je solche Scherze mit Ihnen zu versuchen, und dir zu guter Letzt nahelegen, doch einen ihrer Rivalen zu erschlagen - nur so zum Spaß, versteht sich.

Erster Satz | K. Hearne: Gehetzt
Gehetzt: Die Chronik des Eisernen Druiden 1 - Kevin Hearne

Es hat viele Vorzüge, einundzwanzig Jahrhunderte alt zu werden, aber das mit Abstand Beste daran ist, dass man Zeuge der seltenen Geburt echter Genialität wird.

 

Das spielt sich ausnahmslos so ab: Jemand wirft den Ballast überkommener kultureller Traditionen ab, ignoriert die unheilschwangeren Blicke der Autoritäten und tut etwas, das seine Landsleute für komplett verrückt halten. Unter diesem Genies war Galileo mein persönlicher Favorit. Van Gogh folgte dicht dahinter auf Rang zwei, wobei dieser tatsächlich komplett verrückt war.
