The Killer Clown Calamity (A Charlie Rhodes Cozy Mystery Book 7) Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
Audible Audiobook, Unabridged
|Free with your Audible trial|
It seems sadistic clowns with magical abilities are killing people in the suburbs surrounding Nashville, and the deaths are bloody and horrible. Upon arriving on the scene, Charlie and Jack stumble across an entire cadre of clowns hanging out at the fairgrounds and the game is afoot.
Mystic Caravan Circus isn’t what it appears to be on the surface. Poet Parker, second in command for the circus, is front and center as Jack and Charlie start digging for answers. It seems both sides are keeping secrets, though, and discovering the truth isn’t going to be easy.
Charlie has always zealously guarded her supernatural secret and it seems she’s not the only one, because the moment she crosses the threshold to the circus she senses she’s surrounded by a magical group of otherworldly individuals.
Trust takes time but that’s a precious commodity as the clowns ramp up their attacks. It’s going to take everyone working together to figure out what’s happening … and who is behind it.
Poet and Charlie make a fearsome twosome but they might not be enough to take on this particular threat. Everybody hates a clown, and when this trio declares war, the horror that follows will haunt an entire city.
Charlie is determined to deal with the clowns before focusing on her personal life. She has to survive to find answers, though, and it’s going to take every ounce of power she has to come out safely on the other side.
Fear is the name of the game, and two heroes are about to collide.

I understand you have to have some love interest, but the whole Jack and Charlie relationship just doesn’t ring true. It’s more of a teenage fantasy of what a relationship is supposed to be. Nothing comes across as real to me. Maybe that’s fair since it is a group searching for the paranormal while unknowingly having a paranormal in their midst. Each of them are naive creations and don’t seem to grow up beyond a childish representation of what each of them are. All surfaces, no depth.
I did like that we finally found out what Charlie’s genetic background is, at least so far as what her family claims. She’s obviously more then Witch, Mage or whatever else including Warlock, since that is supposed to be a male only line.
The crossover using the Mystic Caravan Circus was ok, but I feel like that is all the author is doing anymore. Crossovers between her various series. It’s getting to be extremely overdone. Just because Marvel has made it a thing, which truthfully they’ve been doing since the 60’s, and doing it better, doesn’t mean every writer has to follow in their footsteps.
I really enjoy the Mystic Caravan series, so that is the only reason I wasn’t totally put off with the story. The thunderbird mythos was an interesting angle. I feel it was explained well and in some way utilized reasonably well. I do think adding Fred and Toby to the thunderbird lineup didn’t work very well though. Yes Waya was good, but did evil things he couldn’t control after turning. That the two men just fell through the wards and were turned into thunderbirds seemed ridiculous. Waya was only turned due to a crossroads demon deal. Shouldn’t the two men have needed access to that level of magic to turn into thunderbirds as well?
I read a lot, usually the Lee books take a day or day and a half to read, which is the only reason I read the Charlie Rhodes books along with all of her other series. When you read as much as I do, sometimes you read just the ‘ehh’ stuff to fill the time, so you can occasionally be surprised with a good one. This one was not one of the better ones though, even with the unique thunderbird story. It could have been though, if the characters had a lot more depth to them.
I am all for female empowerment, but each heroine from each of the various series can’t each be the embodiment of the most powerful (insert paranormal type here). Can’t the character still be underpowered but knows how to use the power they possess to its best ability? Or research enough information so they know the villains weakness and can exploit them that way? Plus if each series has the strongest person in it, then wouldn’t the odds also create a situation where one of them may not be on the side of good and all that is right in the world? Or a villain would search them out to up their own status by taking out a super-powered do-gooder?
Also, please just get rid of Laura. Her sniping and ridiculous behavior would never stand in the real world, even in a job where her daddy got her the position, unless she worked directly under that nepotistic nightmare. She’s a ridiculous caricature of a person and after a couple exposures to her joke of a personality, it’s time to have her move on. Hostile work environment indeed, now end her.

The murders are proving hard to analyse with weird wounds at the victims necks and abnormal splatter patterns. The biggest concern for the police, however, is trying to link it to the circus that just so happens to have come to town.
Mystic Circus are also trying to work the case. So now there's three teams and some paranormal overlap as Charlie finds Poet and the motley circus crew she leads. Charlie's focus is being divided by the situation with Casey.. she's not sure what she wants to do and now Laura is accusing her of trying to steal him away because she couldn't find him Charlie wasn't with him but Laura's all about the hate! All Charlie wants is to hide away with Jack and forget about it all.
Fantastic, even though it was clowns.. coulrophobia is challenge with Mystic Circus tie ins.. we're finally uncovering more of Charlie's story and now I am desperately wanting the next book!! I hope it's coming soon!!
I love how this series has incorporated many of her other great characters, especially Aunt Tilley.
Amanda thank you for the company in the nights the pain won't let me sleep. My dreams are most interesting when I finally get their!
Love, love, love this book!!!
This time when Chris calls the team together, they are off to Nashville. There's been an unexplained death attributed to KILLER CLOWNS. Fantastic characters, super plot and just really good writing!
