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 murder, 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…
First up, we mix a grim reaper with the son of Satan and if that wasn't twisted enough Ms Jones throws in demons (which okay, yes son of Satan), ghosts, and again that makes sense as it is kind of what Charley's mission on Earth is but then it gets so tangled with Gods making their presence felt. I'm down with Jehovah and his angels, I'm almost holding my own as those from other dimensions’ feature (heavily!), but what has happened to Charley and Reyes’ child? Eek, I don't honestly think I could function! Yet there's our intrepid duo going about their everyday lives and Charley has a new case, Reyes carries on being the best chef in town, and yet the cracks in their relationship just keep getting wider and wider.
Reyes is well … Reyes, he is always a cool customer and in comparison Charley feels juvenile and I freely admit I adore her wit but there are moments I want to shake her. Not only is Charley terrified for her missing child but her feelings for Reyes and the secrets she hides from him are surely going to need marriage guidance or counselling at the very least. Reyes is sex on legs, the reader knows this, and yet Charley constantly reminds us to the point where I question, is it love or obsession? There's just so much crammed in here and as usual the supporting characters add greatly but it's the tough choices Charley makes that kept me glued to the page.
So okay, The Curse of the Tenth Grave answers many of my questions and yet it's a bittersweet ending. I'm not exactly sure what Ms Jones intends next, but I sincerely hope we get a lot more Reyes as it felt a little uneven at times. Yes, I understand that exploring Charley's fears and paranoia added to the storyline but secrets between a couple as powerful as this two is clearly a recipe for disaster. Read this series from the beginning and follow the ups and downs of this couple and hold on tight because it's not over yet!
