I am partial when it comes to Charley Davidson series. I like them almost as much as Charley likes coffee. I am too invested in it.
Not very often do you get to rediscover your protagonist in a series but ninth grave gives you just that. With this novel it is established that Charley doesn’t need her memory to define her. She may not have her memory but she can do all things ‘grim’ just right.
Darynda has really tamed her writing in this book in comparison to the others in this series. At times I was disappointed that she didn’t explore as much as she did in her other books. There were parts when the story just dragged which often happens as Charley gets in trouble. But then you are catapulted into a free-fall of “what?…what?…what!”.
We are yet again left to agonize for another 6 months, in the anticipation to know what happens to the ‘devil in blue jeans’.
My rating is 4 stars for Darynda and another 1/2 star for Lorelei King the narrator of the audio book.
**I don’t give books rating below 3 (at least not as yet), because it takes a lot to write and sometimes it may not connect with me but the effort is definitely appreciated. **
