Review: Third Grave Dead Ahead - Darynda Jones


Paranormal private eye. Grim reaper extraordinaire. Whatever. Charley Davidson is back! And she's drinking copious amounts of caffeine to stay awake because every time she closes her eyes she sees him: Reyes Farrow, the part-human, part-supermodel son of Satan.

Granted she did imprison Reyes for all eternity, but how is she supposed to solve a missing-persons case, deal with an ego-driven doctor, calm her curmudgeonly dad, and take on a motorcycle gang hell-bent on murder when the devil's son just won't give up on his plan of seduction..... and revenge?

My thoughts:
You who have read this series know what I am gonna say, and sighing while doing so...Reyes Reyes Ray'ziel. Yes, oh did other things happen too? I did not notice ;)

This book was just awesome, funny, it had me giggling, and totally swoonworthy as it had me melting into puddles. The reason for that? Reyes, even when he is angry, so very very angry, he has me going weak in the knees. Totally psychotic by the way but Jones writes it so well and I just can't think properly when he shows up. But as always he is in jail, or her dreams. Still plenty of Reyes for me.

Ok we covered funny and the most droolworthy man on the planet, go son of Satan ;)

The plot in this one is to find a missing wife (and then more things happen that I can't tell you about but holy cow!).

Conclusion:
The book was much better than book 2, which also was a good book. I read this one in a day and I seriously crave book 4 but must wait for the paperback *curses the sky*.

Cover:
Cool and meh at the same time

Reyes *swoons* I love this series and the characters.

kara-karina@Nocturnal Book Reviews said...

"Go, Son of Satan!" - that made me laugh hard, Blodeuedd! :))) I agree, great read and I can't wait to read the next one too.

Darlene said...

I think I mentioned this to you but my friend loves this series as well. She keeps bugging me to read it and I'm sure I picked up the first book. Must read it!

Heidi@Rainy Day Ramblings said...

I adored this book, the funniest in the series the sleep deprived amped up Charley is even better. I still am a big fan of Garrett and the end was shocking! I am so glad to see that you loved this one. It is the best so far in the series IMO>

Blodeuedd said...

It's a great series :D I really want book 4, but I have to wait a bit

Blodeuedd said...

He is too dreamy

Blodeuedd said...

;)
He is sure too good to be true, too hot, the pages are burning

Blodeuedd said...

You really should give it a go :D Your friend is totally right

Blodeuedd said...

Oh yes her being all sleep deprived, lol. Jones know how to write.

I did like this one the best too..well book 1 was awesome. So 2nd place maybe

Blodeuedd said...

That it is

Mel said...

I really should start reading this series! Everyone seems to love it! :-)

Chris said...

I did like the cover more when I saw she was wearing Chucks...

Mary (Bookfan) said...

Ok, you and the comments have convinced me to get book one.

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

HEY! *balls hands into fists* Reyes is MINE! *growls*

Menacing enough? Okay, the question makes it a fail, but I'm frankly not that intimidating. LOL

Still, hands off girl, he's mine! :D

Blodeuedd said...

Yes yes you must!

Blodeuedd said...

Yeah, that was cool

Blodeuedd said...

Haha, yay :)

Blodeuedd said...

*growls* Do not mess with me Missy! Reyes is clearly mine MINE!!!!!!

My precious

Yvonne said...

I haven't heard of this series, but your review makes me want to read it. I'm off to add it to my wishlist.

Melissa (My World...in words and pages) said...

Oh damned. I have the first on the shelf and so need to get to this series. :D So glad you loved it.

Aurian said...

Lol, fighting over Reyes already I see. I also enjoyed this book Blodeuedd, and like you, I am waiting for the paperback of book 4. And 5. And so on.

Blodeuedd said...

Add away, it's awesome

Blodeuedd said...

You must read it!!!

Blodeuedd said...

I so wish paperbacks came out at once! This hurts my poor heart

Anachronist said...

Ok we covered funny and the most droolworthy man on the planet, go son of Satan ;)

Your reviews are so sweet and funny!

Mari said...

I am so reading this series! I am in need of something to replace The Sookie Stackhouse series which is awfully close to an end(and rightfully so, what was once a fun read is now just meh).

Great review :D

Elysium said...

I was thinking this was new author for me and then realised I have the 1 book on my wish list. You're making my wishlist grow too much ;)

Melliane said...

I'm so glad you enjoyed it so much I love this series! And you'll see the 4th is really great as well.

Felicia the Geeky Blogger said...

I *heart* this series! I really really do :)

Karen said...

I'll have to give this series another try. I thought the first book was cute but not enough to seek out #2. I do like books with humor though.

Blodeuedd said...

Thank you madam :)

Blodeuedd said...

I know all about that. I gave up at 10 or something. It had been meh for some time then.

And yes please read it :D

Blodeuedd said...

Lol, it happens ;)

Blodeuedd said...

YAY I can't wait

Blodeuedd said...

I heart it too

Blodeuedd said...

Hm..book 2 was a bit weaker than 1 but then book 3 is worth it

Carole Rae said...

hahaha sounds like a fun series.

Blodeuedd said...

:)

Mari said...

Will do! The first book has been on my wishlist forever and a purchase is overdue ;)

I cannot seem to leave Bon Temps until Charlaine gives me some closure. I have my fingers crossed that Sookie & co. will entertain us in the finale and that it is going to be the best book in the series. Is that too much to ask(probably)?

Unknown said...

Like the cover a lot. love the trainers on her feet and the grim ripper thing. I think that i will add this series to my TBR, since it has got a lot of hype from the blogging world
GREAT review

I've never heard of this. I am so glad I have now. I just ordered the first one and will get it Friday. Sounds so fun! By the way I am loving M.L Buchman's Night Stalker series. Much more that a romance. This is saying a lot since I don't read romance. I try and fail.

Blodeuedd said...

Yes do read it :D It's fun, and weird and Reyes is..weird too! Lol, gotta love it all in the end

Blodeuedd said...

YAY :D I am so glad you are enjoying the series. It sure is different, that is what makes romantic suspense so cool

Teddyree said...

Arggh another series I want to start on ... not enough hours in the day lol

Blodeuedd said...

...I sure hope not! I do wanna read the last one so I can see what happens. Just scared it wont go my way ;)

Blodeuedd said...

Tell me about it!

Mari said...

You and me both then ;)
