Publisher's Summary

"If one door closes and another one opens, your house is probably haunted." (Bumper sticker)
As a part-time PI and full-time grim reaper, Charley Davidson has asked a lot of questions throughout her life: Why can I see dead people? Who is the hot supernatural entity following me? How do I get gum out of my sister's hair before she wakes up? But "how do I trap not one malevolent god but three?" was never among them. Until now. And since those gods are on earth to kill her daughter, she has little choice but to track them down, trap them, and cast them from this dimension.
There's just one problem. One of the three stole her heart a very long time ago. Can the Razer, a god of absolute death and destruction, change his omniscient spots, or will his allegiances lie with his brothers?
Those are just a few of the questions Charley must answer, and quick. Add to that a homeless girl running for her life, an innocent man who's been charged with murdering the daughter of a degenerate gambler, and a pendant made from god glass that has the entire supernatural world in an uproar, and Charley has her hands full. If she can manage to take care of the whole world-destroying gods thing, we're saved. If not, well...

I used to like this series..... but....

What disappointed you about The Curse of Tenth Grave?

I like the premise of this story, I like the characters and I like the narrator. I love that Charlotte is the grim reaper and is a little bumbling and that she talks to dead people. I think when people pass through her the stories of those people and their feelings are well written. I like that she is doing what she has to do to protect her child and I like her relationship with Reyus (sp?). What I don't like is the over the top sex scenes. The crude language in the sex scenes is plain distasteful to me and it seems to have gotten progressively worse as the series has worn on.

Would you ever listen to anything by Darynda Jones again?

I am not sure if I will buy anything of hers again which I think is a shame since she is a good storyteller when not wallowing in sex scenes that are far too descriptive. I really love this storyline and used to look forward to the next book in the series. I wish I could have the PG or even R rated version of the story rather than the X rated story. Listening to it on audio is more distasteful than reading it because if you are reading it at least you can skim through these scenes. I would rather have a shorter book than have to listen to the never ending sex scenes. It is almost like she has run out of storyline and has had to augment it with graphic sex scenes.

Have you listened to any of Lorelei King’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I think that Lorelei King does an exceptional job with the characters voices, I can easily discern who is "talking" throughout. She remains true to the voice throughout the series.

Love the book, but...

Love the book and characters. I just hate the sex parts. It's just too graphic for me. But I think the stories are so great and this book in particular was so entertaining! I just fast forward thru the sex scenes. Wish she had a clean version ! My rating overall because of sex scenes 2 stars but story and performance 5 stars!
