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

Charley Davidson, Grim Reaper extraordinaire, is pissed. She’s been kicked off the earthly plain for eternity – which is the appropriate amount of time to make a person stark-raving mad. But someone’s looking out for her, and she’s allowed to return after a mere hundred years in exile. Is it too much to hope for that not much has changed? Apparently it is. Bummer.

She’s missed Reyes and her daughter, Beep, but now that she’s back on earth, it’s time to put to rest burning questions that need answers. What happened to her mother? How did she really die? Who killed her? And are cupcakes or coffee the best medicine? It all comes to a head in an epic showdown between good and evil in this final smart and hilarious novel.

Do you have a favorite series? Ya know the one where EVERY DANG THING stops on release day and you consume the newest release only to suffer a book hangover and cry because you have to wait another year for the next book? A series you quote, whose fandom you belong to? Yes, I am a card carrying GRIMLET!

Summoned to Thirteenth Grave by Darynda Jones is the final book in the Charley Davidson series featuring a coffee loving, Grim Reaping god who collects friends, named her tits and loves a Demon who happens to be the son of Lucifer. These are my people. Osh, Cookie, Garret, Uncle Bob, the kids and so many more from the living to the non-living. I have loved every minute of this series, even the killer last paragraphs that left me hanging to the next release.

The only reason I am not curled in a fetal position somewhere is because I have it on good authority we will see more from this world pertaining to Beep.

Jones took me on one heck of an emotional ride and made me experience all the feels from laughter to tears as we said goodbye to some, made startling revelations, learned the fate of some, battled demons and spent time with our favorite couples.

An apocalyptic event is happening in Albuquerque because of events in the previous books. The CDC and national news are reporting illness, followed by violent changes in behavior to those affected. Think..zombie apocalypse..but no one is eating brains. Oh, and there are demons from a hell dimension. You must read the book to discover more but Charley and her army of misfits have mere days to save the world.

Summoned to Thirteenth Grave was epic!! If you haven’t begun the series now is the time to binge. If you’ve read all the books, but have final book phobia (trust me it is a thing), do not be afraid. I repeat. Do not be afraid….it is safe to go into the light!

On and Ms. Jones, that last paragraph was a killer.

    I listened to the first of this series for a challenge and I did enjoy it, but for whatever reason, I did not continue. I have three of these on my kindle and need to get back to them. It sounds like the series just gets better and you don’t think this is the end? Interesting. Great review.

    No doubt you and Charley have an unbreakable connection over coffee. I love the humor and the mystery cases in the series. There was so much in this last book and the pace was frantic. The narration is awesome. Fabulous review! Anne – Books of My Heart

    Fabulous review! I love the sound of this one, Kimberly – I do have a problem with reading final books in series, btw…

    Yep, book depression is staved off because she has confirmed that Beep’s books are coming. 🙂

    I do want to get her other new series, too.

    I’ve read first of this series and really enjoyed it. I must continue now it’s complete!

    I’m it was a wonderful ending. Especially seeing as the series is a favourite of yours. 🙂

    Love, love this series and went into this last book with some sadness, but it was a great conclusion.

    Still trying so hard not to begin any books that form a series for my own personal reading (IE not books that form a series that are sent to me by authors/publishers) but you make it so hard. Grief! This sounds good.

    Oh yes I love this series as well and I had sucha great time again with this book! Can’t wait for more!

    I’ve heard nothing but praise for these books. I’m so happy that the ending ended with a bang! It’s so nerve-wracking going into a series finale, but it’s always fulfilling when it ends great.

    I think the only reason many of us aren’t in a fetal position is because of not only that killer last chapter (and sentence!) but because we know we will be getting more! I need more Beep and Osh, dang Osh!
