Book Synopsis:

As a 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 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…

My Review:

I can’t believe I’ve finished book 10 of my reread/listen of this series!  I’m going to have a bit of a wait for book 11 and 12 which is alright as the last book doesn’t release until 2019.  I have to say it has been a blast listening to these books and I’m going to explore rereading other series I enjoy in audio format.  I used to not enjoy audiobooks but now that I’ve gotten used to them it is a rewarding and different way to enjoy books.  After all, doesn’t most of us start off with having books read to us as children?

Not a lot I can add to my previous review as I’m getting into the books in this series that I’ve read fairly recently.  Much of the plot is fresher in my memory and there are fewer surprises of stuff I forgot.  I had forgotten that this book ended on a huge cliffhanger but since I know what happens next it isn’t such a big deal.

At the end of the audiobook, we are again treated to an interview with the author which is simply the icing on the cake as far as I’m concerned.  It is so cool to listen to Ms. Jones’s thoughts on the characters and how she got some of her inspiration.  Totally worth listening to the books for the interview alone.

One thing that rereading this series has made me realize is just how much I’m going to miss this series when it ends.  I really like Charley, Reyes, Cookie, Uncle Bob, and all the others.  I do hope that Ms. Jones takes this series into the future and does a spin-off featuring beep and her army.  Fingers crossed!

My Rating: 5 Stars
