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*.

Cool and meh at the same time

  6. 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>

  16. 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

    1. 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

    2. 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)?

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

    4. You and me both then ;)

  20. 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.

  23. 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.
