Eight grave after dark - Darynda Jones

Charley Davidson has enough going on without having to worry about twelve hellhounds hot on her trail. She is, after all, incredibly pregnant and feeling like she could pop at any moment. But, just her luck, twelve deadly beasts from hell have chosen this time to escape onto our plane, and they've made Charley their target. And so she takes refuge at the only place she thinks they can't get to her: the grounds of an abandoned convent. Of course, if hellhounds aren't enough, Charley also has a new case to hold her attention: the decades-old murder of a newly-vowed nun she keeps seeing in the shadows of the convent.
Add to that the still unsolved murder of her father, the strange behavior of her husband, and Charley's tendency to attract the, shall we say, undead, and she has her hands full...but also tied.

My thoughts:
I did like, I did read it fast, but, oh I just wish it would end! I read the blurb for book 9 and it was SUCH a filler. It was more than a filler, it seemed like a book about nothing. But that is book 9, this is book 8.

Charley is very very very preggers, about to burst. They are hiding at a convent since hellhounds are after them.

We have a wedding.
We have angry hellhounds.
We have Reyes sneaking around.
A new arrival.
Searching for her dad's killer
Wondering what the Vatican is up to.
Wondering what Lucifer is up to.

But yes I enjoyed it, but yes I also wish it would end soon. A series that goes on and on, they tend to turn sour. It has not happened yet but I am scared.

That's what most people said about this one. I've only read the first book so far.

I also liked it, but I wasn't crazy about this book. I hope next book is better.

Jenny said...

I've read a couple series where we got into the double digits without too much filler along the way, so hopefully that's the case with Charley! Maybe book 9 won't be as much filler as you think:)

Hello, and thanks for sharing. Greetings!

I am worried too that it won't continue to entertain. I did like this one because it had some revelations.

Blodeuedd said...

THey are still good, just, not as good

Blodeuedd said...

I hope so too, but after that blurb I doubt it

Blodeuedd said...

She will have amnesia and meet her friends again, that does not sounds good

Blodeuedd said...

:)

Blodeuedd said...

And she did have a baby, but I am worried

Anachronist said...

It would be such a shame to see a series gone sour.

Melissa (Books and Things) said...

See! That means that you don't love Reyes as much as I do! He is MINE! *grumpy face*

Melanie Simmons (mlsimmons) said...

I do love this series. I enjoyed this book. I do see it as a filler, but this series is a LOL time for me and this book still brought that. I don't know how many more books, but I do agree that there shouldn't be too many more.

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

Oh good grief! This series is this far along!?! I need to get to reading it!

Yvonne said...

Sounds like an interesting series. That sometimes happens with long series and a filler every so often. I hope that won't be the case for the next one.

Sophia Rose said...

I'm feeling the worry, too. I haven't read this one yet, but the last few feel like the series arc is spinning its wheels. Still...it's Charley and Reyes and I love that.

Anonymous said...

Wait so she has a baby in this book but the next book sounds like it's filler? You'd think a huge event like that in someone's life would shake things up in the series a little, pity. I look forward to seeing the verdict when you tackle book 9.

Melliane said...

Oh yes I always love so much all the books!

Blodeuedd said...

Sigh :/

Blodeuedd said...

*sobs*

Blodeuedd said...

It still is lol, I just worry, 5 more? I need an ending

Blodeuedd said...

Yup

Blodeuedd said...

I will keep my fingers crossed

Blodeuedd said...

I do love them, but that spinning thing, yeah

Blodeuedd said...

In the next book she will have amnesia and be somewhere else, and it seems meet her friends again Sigh, filler

Blodeuedd said...

:)

Kathryn T said...

I have this series to read. Yes there comes a time when a series needs to end. Must be hard though for author/publisher to call it a day!

Dragana M. said...

Whenever I think about Charley Davidson book I have a strong wish to drink a cup of coffee. :) I'm a little behind with this series but I will catch up soon.

Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer said...

I just love this series.

Blodeuedd said...

If they can make money they will keep it going

Blodeuedd said...

I do not drink coffee, sorry Charley! I did not have your back there

Blodeuedd said...

:)

Piecraft Bucharest said...

I must be the only one who hasn't read her yet :\ I feel left out...

Jen Twimom said...

I agree about going on too long... I hope this one doesn't. I wasn't a fan of books 6 and 7, so for me, this one was better. But the ending made me mad. We'll see where book 9 takes us.

Blodeuedd said...

You have time

Blodeuedd said...

It has kept going down. yes this one was good, but that ending, I hated everything about it

Carole Rae said...

Not for me. Too bad tho...the cover and title seemed interesting

kara-karina@Nocturnal Book Reviews said...

Yep, it's been going on too long without some kind of resolution. We'll see.

Blodeuedd said...

Well you still have to start with nr 1

Blodeuedd said...

I do need an ending soon

Joyousreads said...

I can't get enough of this series. I wish the opposite, actually.

Blodeuedd said...

IF I felt they were all awesome then I'd wish the same

Nise' said...

I did not like how this book ended either. I hope book 9 redeems it self.

Blodeuedd said...

We can only hope. That one thing, grrrrrr, NO!

Teddyree said...

argh I have to start on this series, I was tossing up between First Grave on the Right and The Queen of the Tearling. Picked the wrong one I think ;)

Blodeuedd said...

Oh noes
