The Curse of Tenth Grave
The Curse of Tenth Grave: A Novel | Darynda Jones
Part-time PI and full-time 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 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. But one of them stole her heart a very long time ago. Can a god of absolute death and destruction change his omniscient spots, or will his allegiance lie with his brothers? Those are just some of the questions Charley must answer, and quick. Add to that a homeless girl on the run for her life, a man who's been framed for murdering a woman who is still very much alive, and a pendant made from god glass that has the entire supernatural world in an uproar, 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...

Ten books in and it‘s still keeping my interest 🙂

I still love this series. A lot of times a series will outlasts a reader's interest. Charley's humor is sometimes childish, but it keeps me smiling. 5/5 ⭐'s.

Giving it a pick but it was a 3.5/5 for me. Certainly not as good as the rest of the series, but far better than 9. There's only 2 more left in the series so I'll just ride it out.

So a few things about this app - if you don't know the exact # of pages it has a book listed at, it won't mark the book as finished. When I tried to, it told me I must read for at least 10 mins of mark all pages read - even after the timer hit the 10 min mark. What's worse, I think it reset my timer at one point because this should have been 10 hrs rather than 8. #24in48

BeckyLeJ And no, it didn't take THAT long to finish this book, I read something else in the middle & left the time running. I wasn't sure if I could set a diff book before marking this one complete. #24in48 3y
Theresa What app is it? 3y
BeckyLeJ @Theresa it's the Bookout app someone recommended for tracking read times for the readathon. It's ok, but I'm not loving the lost time aspect. 3y
Theresa It seems that, if a primary purpose of the app is to track time, losing time would be a pretty big problem! 🙁 3y

Finished the audio book of this fun paranormal series yesterday (my 1st audio book for the series). I liked the narrator (Lorelei King) & how she voiced Charley & team but the story didn't grab me as quickly as in previous books. The last 1/3 did pick up, set things up for book 11 & ended w/a cliffhanger for at least one of my favorite characters, so I'll be waiting to see what happens. I'll likely give audio another try for this series too.👂📚👍

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I've listened to most of this series and love the narrator, but I agree about the book... I was wondered if the excitement was dying down for me as she gets closer to wrapping up the series, because I also found the 'mystery' much less exciting this time, but still enjoyed the ending where it ties into the larger plot line. 3y
DebinHawaii @Riveted_Reader_Melissa It could be. I was excited to have her back home with her memory back but wasn't that excited with her interactions w/ Reyes or the mystery. I suppose it has been 10 books so maybe the thrill is going. But I am anxious to find out what happens with everyone in the next book. 3y

A little work at Starbucks today taking advantage of my free B-Day drink a day early. This is the first book in the Charley Davidson series that I have tried on audio instead of reading. The narrator is good but I'm at Chapter 8 and it's not pulling me in like the other books have. Not sure if it's book 10, the fact it's audio, or a mood thing. I'll try again later and if I feel the same, stop & wait for my book hold to come in.

Reaper & PI extraordinaire Charlie and her crew continue to work to keep "Beep" safe and the supernatural big bads at bay. Add in her real world cases and she is one busy lady. Don't worry, she still has time for the important things, COFFEE and BOOTS! This series is great for those looking for a fumble bumble mystery with a supernatural twist! Also, ANYTHING narrated by Lorelei King is a must!

The human PI mysteries of this installment dragged for me a bit, but the reveals and additions to the overall larger plot line were HUGE and completely made me forget all about them with those killer last couple of chapters!

DebinHawaii I'm on library hold for this one! 👍 3y
Karen3 I so need to catch up with this series. Such a good one. 3y

The Grim Reaper is out saving lives with her man. Don't want to give anything away to non-series readers. Suffice to say these books are fun and each chap starts w a funny quip. Ex: my love is like a candle. Carry me w u and I'll light ur path. Forget me and I'll burn ur fucking house down.

I love Charley Davidson and the murders she solves! Not particularly impressed with how the story line is going at this point. I was truly excited to get this book and it is a good read but the plot is starting to sour a bit for me. But I still look forward to seeing what happens in the next book.
