Release Day Review: The Trouble with Twelfth Grave by Darynda Jones

Grim Reaper Charley Davidson is back in the twelfth installment of Darynda Jones’ New York Times bestselling paranormal series.

Ever since Reyes escaped from a hell dimension in which Charley accidently trapped him, the son of Satan has been brimstone-bent on destroying the world his heavenly Brother created. His volatile tendencies have put Charley in a bit of a pickle. But that’s not the only briny vegetable on her plate. While trying to domesticate the feral being that used to be her husband, she also has to deal with her everyday life of annoying all manner of beings—some corporeal, some not so much—as she struggles to right the wrongs of society. Only this time she’s not uncovering a murder. This time she’s covering one up. 

Add to that her new occupation of keeping a startup PI venture—the indomitable mystery-solving team of Amber Kowalski and Quentin Rutherford—out of trouble and dealing with the Vatican’s inquiries into her beloved daughter, and Charley is on the brink of throwing in the towel and becoming a professional shopper. Or possibly a live mannequin. But when someone starts attacking humans who are sensitive to the supernatural world, Charley knows it’s time to let loose her razor sharp claws. Then again, her number one suspect is the dark entity she’s loved for centuries. So the question becomes, can she tame the unruly beast before it destroys everything she’s worked so hard to protect?

 The Charley Davidson series is the only Urban Fantasy/Paranormal series that has kept me hooked for so long. I could reread this series every year and not get tired or bored. After the cliffhanger in book #11, I couldn't wait to get my hands on The Trouble with Twelfth Grave. Like in every book there is humor, romance, quirkiness, sadness, suspense, heartbreak and so much more. Every character plays such an essential role in making this one of the best series ever. In this book we learn new things and get more of our questions answered. The next book will be the last one, so everything is being build-up to the grand finale. 

At the end of the previous book, Reyes is not quite himself, and in this book Charley and the gang need to find a way to get through to him. However that isn't as easy as it sounds. Furthermore, Charley also has other cases she's working on, and has friends that need her help as well. Charley has so much on her plate, but she would give her life for the people she cares about. She is one of the most incredible, honest, self-sacrificing person ever. I can't really say too much without spoiling the book, and also the blurb tells more than enough about what to expect. I don't think the fans of this series will be disappointed with this installment. However, I don't know why but this book was over before I knew it. It felt very short to me and it left me wanting more of everything. I am just addicted to Charley Davidson series, and will impatiently wait on the last book. Which I'll probably read with tears in my eyes.
