103) Fifth Grave Past the Light by Darynda Jones

The Blurb :

Charley Davidson may not look like your everyday, run-of-the-mill grim reaper, but she has vowed to reap grimness wherever she goes despite this unfortunate fact. Sadly, she gets sidetracked when the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, moves in next door. As he is the main suspect in her arson case, she is determined to stay away from him until she can find out the truth. According to her therapist, however, she lacks conviction.

When dead women start appearing in her apartment - lost, confused and terrified beyond reason - Charley has no choice but to ask for Reyes's help, especially when it becomes apparent that her own sister Gemma is the serial killer's next target. With his ability to observe incorporeally, surely he can find out who's responsible. And even if he can't, he is the one man alive who could protect Gemma no matter who or what came at her. But he wants something in return: Charley. All of her - body and soul. And to keep her sister safe, it is a price she is willing to pay…

My Thoughts :

Amazing, fantastic and just spectacular!  I don't think it is really worth writing a review for a book this good because you should all just got out and read it.  Actually you should read the whole series!  I just can't get enough of this one and the audible version is absolutely perfect!  I would love to read the books someday but I can't help myself listening to this series.  The narrator just brings the characters and story to life in such a special way.  It is hard to explain how good it is.

If you haven't already had the ultimate pleasure of reading/listening to this series yet then you really need to play catch up.  Already a fan?  Then wait no longer and just go get a copy of this book today.  I would rather use my money to buy a Charley Davidson book than buy food or pay some bills.  Everything else can wait but this book/series is not just entertainment but nourishment for the soul.  It makes you laugh, cry and just feel good.  There are moments you think are scary and frightening but Charley makes them fun and interesting.

Being the Grim Reaper isn't easy and it isn't always fun but Charley Davidson makes a living out of it and also manages to help a lot of souls pass over to the otherside.  Meanwhile in this newest installment she also manages to solve a few cases and see her love life evolve in a way I definitely wasn't expecting.  I can hardly contain myself and hope book six comes sooner rather than later.  I need to know what happens next.

Darynda Jones is one of those writers who has a unique writing talent.  She manages to pull you in, keep you occupied and weave a wonderful plot with the most awesome characters while also entertaining you with some realistic situations filled with joking scarcasm.  I absolutely love the style and the paranormal element just makes this the perfect read.  I can only highly recommend this series and tell everyone who will listen about how great this series is.  It is a series I will giving to friends and family as presents and one I will be listening to again and again.

10 out of 10, A+ and 5 stars!  This is the best of the best and you should be ordering a copy already!  Or get to the nearest bookstore and start reading it there! Go!  Do it now!  You won't regret it!
