Sixth Grave on the Edge: Charley Davidson Series: Book Sixth Kindle Edition
From the Back Cover
Sometimes I wrestle my demons. Sometimes we just snuggle.
Most girls might think twice before getting engaged to someone like Reyes Farrow---but Charley Davidson is not most girls. She's a paranormal private eye and grim reaper-in-training who's known to be a bit of a hell-raiser, especially after a few shots of caffeine. Her beloved Reyes may be the only begotten son of evil, but he's dark and sultry and deeply sexy and everything Charley could hope for. Really. But when the FBI file on Reyes's childhood happens to land in her lap, she can't help herself: She opens it . . . and then the real fun begins.
--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
First, Charley finds a naked corpse riding shotgun in her car. Then, a man loses his soul in a card game. Throw in a Deaf boy who sees dead people, a woman running from mobsters, and a very suspicious Reyes, and things can't get any worse for Charley. Unless, of course, the Twelve Beasts of Hell were to be unleashed. . . .

Great series I wish other authours would take note of how to keep a series vibrant and interesting.
There are several focuses in the storyline including a man who lost his soul in a game of cards and Charley’s dogged determination to uncover the truth about Reye’s past. She knows some of the ugly details of his childhood but she will set her sights on the people she believes gave birth to the Son of Satan. When Reyes demands that she stop her investigation, Charley’s inquiring mind doesn’t necessarily want to hear the story behind the story.
We will be introduced to the Dealer-a demon from Hell who knows more about Charley’s predestination than Reyes has revealed. The Dealer offers up ‘a deal’ to those in need but his price is steep and beyond what most people can pay. Charley is drawn to the Dealer if for no other reason than to learn the truth about who and what she has been ‘born’ to do.
Angel, Charley's forever thirteen year old ghostly assistant, will have a more active role in this particular storyline. We will learn the truth about his death and the woman who wants to know if her son is still on this plane of existence. Some stories are harder to tell and Angel's story is one that has been building since book one.
Cookie is her usual manic self-from the brains behind Charley’s PI investigations to the woman who has fallen for Charley’s Uncle Bob, Cookie is a one woman power house who plays off of Charley’s natural sarcastic banter-a perfect combination in any storyline or series. When Charley sets up a series of dates for the voluptuous assistant, Ubie (or Uncle Bob) becomes suspicious when he recognizes one of the men with whom Cookie has been paired.
SIXTH GRAVE ON THE EDGE is not as dark as some of the previous instalments. Charley’s knack for putting herself into dangerous situations continues but any near death experiences will not result in weeks to months of rehabilitation as in the past. Charley has yet to say YES to Reyes proposal and he is a man possessed to make Charley his wife and his own.
The relationship between Reyes and Charley is imaginative, erotic and arousing-psychic sensuality is something we should all strive to achieve. Reyes is the epitome of sex; his allure is far reaching but he is intensely captivated by only one woman-a woman who was made especially for him.
The ending and revelation were not unexpected for this reader but it was a definite twist in the storyline development. When the prophecies have decreed that the Twelve Hounds from Hell will come for Charley, there is another Twelve waiting to protect the daughter they have all been waiting to see.
Darynda Jones writes from the heart with humor, sarcasm, an astonishing concept of friendship and a brilliant mind. The Charley Davidson series is a phenomenal UF/paranormal series that focuses on a kick-a$$ heroine who knows there are limitations to her powers but has yet to reach her ordained levels prescribed in the hierarchy of all things supernatural and decreed.

Some questions have been raised for me like what the hell Charley's father is up to and what exactly is the prophecy about Charley and Reyes cause you had Rocket telling Charley she had to kill Reyes or the world dies in the last book and now cause she didn't kill Reyes someone else has to die (won't say who!) but someone else is saying Reyes isn't important but she has to survive. Even Reyes isn't sure any more about what his fathers plans were.
Personally, I still have faith that Reyes isn't going to be the cause of any apocalypse destroying all humanity, he loves Charley and he also has other people he cares about, plus he'd never be responsible for the death of a kid, kids are the only ones (aside from Charley, Cookie and his best friend and his wife) who treat him nicely without suspicion or fear.
I think between them Reyes and Charley will prove everyone wrong and save the world rather then destroying it and when that happens I'll be pulling mental faces at Garrett, the Dealer, Rocket and the rest that have badmouthed Reyes!
I will say there are a couple of big surprises at the end but I won't say what! Read and find out!
It quickly got back to it's usual level of crazy Charley plots and heated exchanges between her and her "nigh fiancé". Add in all the usual P.I./police/FBI stuff and once again it was another great book in the series.
I loved the car sex scene. That might sound a little strange but add Reyes, rain, a car bonnet and nakedness and you'll understand that was one hell of a hot scene. Especially if you've read the rest of the books in the series.
I'm happy about a lot of things that happened in this book but the ending has thrown me a little. I wasn't expecting it, anyway, and I'm intrigued as to where the ret of the series will go now and how many books there are going to be all together.
I'll definitely be keeping my eyes open for the 7th book in October :D
This is book six in a series that has yet to have a single dud. Charley Davidson continues to be mildly psychotic, continues to be the Grim Reaper minus instructions, loves the son of Satan and keeps faith in the fact that she can make bad boy turn good. I love Cookie cause she loves Charley. Ubie, Swopes, Angel and Mr Wong all have their roles and none of them feel like fillers. Charley's father and step mom are perhaps the weakest characters, but with so much else going on that's not a significant detraction.
The USP in all of the books, though, is the humour. Totally unique, totally Charley, totally me!
I cannot wait for the next book, so I'm going to re-read the whole series starting this evening.
