Twelve. Twelve of the deadliest beasts ever forged in the fires of hell have escaped onto our plane, and they want nothing more than to rip out the jugular of Charley Davidson and serve her lifeless, mangled body to Satan for dinner. So there's that. But Charley has more on her plate than a mob of testy hellhounds. For one thing, her father has disappeared, and the more she retraces his last steps, the more she learns he was conducting an investigation of his own, one that has Charley questioning everything she's ever known about him. Add to that an ex-BFF who is haunting her night and day, a rash of suicides that has authorities baffled, and a drop-dead sexy fiancé who has attracted the attentions of a local celebrity, and Charley is not having the best week of her life.
But all of that combined barely scratches the surface of her problems. Recent developments - and a few distressing prophesies - have forced her to become a responsible adult. Exactly the kind of adult she's never aspired to be. To conquer such a monumental task, she's decided to start small. Really small. She gets a pet. But how can she save the world against the forces of evil when she can't even keep a goldfish alive? A tad north of hell, a hop, skip, and a jump past the realm of eternity, is a little place called Earth, and Charley Davidson, grim reaper extraordinaire, is determined to do everything in her power to protect it. We're doomed.My thoughts:
What could be better? A series I love, great humor (I LOL'd so many times!), secondary characters I want as family or at least friends, and one smokin' hot demon. *fans self* Yea, you can say I am addicted to this series.
I love Charley's attitude in this book. Faced with certain doom in the form of the twelve, hell hounds who cannot be killed, she still refuses to let them totally change all aspects of her life. She still wants to do what makes her Charley. While this is great for her clients, it is not the same for her cohorts. In fact I believe that several of those cohorts will have several white hairs before this is done. Can demon's get white hair? Hm... I bet Charley will find a way.
While this one was full of humor, there was a tear or two shed. Not everything works out in the end and this event also shoves her in a slightly new direction. Yea, I want to know more too, but like me you will have to anxiously await the next installment in this series.
I also can not end this review without saying something about the narration. Lorelei King nails this book as she did the others. Yes, she is the reason I have done every book in this series so far on audio and will continue. I highly recommend this series on audio.
I give this book 4 1/2 stars. Again another great and entertaining installment in this series. I hope it never ends.
