Darynda Jones - Summoned to the Thirteenth Grave (Charley Davidson series #13)

Grim Reaper Charley Davidson is back in the final installment of Darynda Jones’ New York Times bestselling paranormal series!

Charley Davidson, Grim Reaper extraordinaire, is pissed. She’s been kicked off the earthly plain for eternity – which is the appropriate amount of time to make a person starkraving mad. But someone’s looking out for her, and she’s allowed to return after a mere hundred years in exile. Is it too much to hope for that not much has changed? Apparently it is. Bummer.

She’s missed Reyes and her daughter, Beep, but now that she’s back on earth, it’s time to put to rest burning questions that need answers. What happened to her mother? How did she really die? Who killed her? And are cupcakes or coffee the best medicine? It all comes to a head in an epic showdown between good and evil in this final smart and hilarious novel.

5 Stars

We have come to the end. On one hand you never want a series to outlive it's storyline and become repetitive and boring. But when you have a really great writer who makes each and every book outstanding then it's hard to say goodbye. 

We had 13 books, with 13+ cases, more than 13 new "family" members to the group, and way more than 13 memories of a spellbinding series. It's been a funny, amazing ride with Charley, Reyes, Cookie and the ever expanding gang. Darynda Jones always had us laughing and in awe of Charley and Reyes (Cookie's antics), and still managed to weave a story in amongst the peripheral view. The supernatural aspect just fit in perfectly with the everyday "case" solving and you didn't even notice how far you strayed from the everyday life into the "celestial" one. 

I'm going to miss the gang so much, but I'm really crossing my fingers that the ending was a clue to a new series.
