Winner of the 2009 Golden Heart® for Best Paranormal Romance for her manuscript FIRST GRAVE ON THE RIGHT, Darynda can't remember a time when she wasn't putting pen to paper. DARYNDA JONES lives in the Land of Enchantment, also known as New Mexico, with her husband of more than 25 years and two beautiful sons, aka the Mighty, Mighty Jones Boys.

LORELEI KING has recorded over 200 audiobooks, including several titles from Janet Evanovich’s bestselling Stephanie Plum series and Darynda Jones’s Charley Davidson series.  Her many awards include the 2008 Audie Award for Female Solo Narration for Tallgrass by Sandra Dallas, the Radio Times performer of the Year for The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood, and AudioFile Earphones Awards for Eleven on Top and Twelve Sharp, both by Janet Evanovich.  AudioFile also deemed her one of the "Best Voices of 2008."


King’s screen credits include
Notting Hill, House of Mirth, and Cold Feet, among others. She has appeared as regular and recurring characters in popular British television shows such as Chef, Cold Feet, Alistair McGowan's Big Impression, Emmerdale, and the saucy Mile High.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal series ender! But is it really the end? I hope not.
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on January 29, 2019
Final books are so tough, especially when they’re part of a much beloved and long-running series, like the Charley Davidson series. From the first book to the last, Darynda has provided laughs, romance, unbreakable friendships with characters, both living and dead, that you can’t help but love. And while one door closes, another stands wide the heck open and I have a feeling that this isn’t goodbye for many of the characters. Or at least I hope it isn’t.

In this installment, Charley finally makes her way back to the mortal world after being sent to a hell dimension, courtesy of Gee Oh Dee. Time works quite differently in both the heavenly and hellish realms, and while Charley is aware of the exact number of years, days, minutes and seconds that have passed, she has no clue what that translates to in the mortal realm. Lucky for her, it’s not an exorbitant amount of time. Unluckily, demons and hell on earth wait for no one and before she knows it, she’s back solving cases and trying to get to the heart of a plague that has demonic ties.

Summoned to Thirteenth Grave was really a story of goodbye, and that was certainly a focal point throughout this book. Every single character of note was present in this book and while some appearances were as simple as a few words exchanged, others were told of their destiny in the battle between Satan and the Sentry. Because yes, that battle is still on the horizon, and yes, Beep is still at the center of it all. Along with everyone’s favorite Daeva, of course, and a few new and surprising additions to the Sentry.

There were plenty of surprises and twists thrown into this final book, almost like Darynda was holding out on us and saving the best for last. Not only that, but Charley has finally learned the history of her mother’s death — the history that everyone around her kept under a layer of secrecy, only divulging the basics. This was such an emotional book, not simply because it’s the final installment, but also because there’s loss, past and present, and every seemingly small thread tied to those losses were explored and given a bit of closure. Jones has never been afraid to put her characters (and readers!) through the emotional wringer, but she definitely outdid herself with this one.

I’ve heard word of a spin-off, and I’m certainly hoping that comes to fruition in the future. This story can’t be finished, and I’m not just saying that because I can’t let go. The biggest battle hasn’t yet happened, the prophecies haven’t yet been realized, and there are so many current characters who have been given a place in the Sentry, thanks to Charley’s ability to see parts of the future. So while Reyes’ and Charley’s arc may have come to a close, I have hope that it isn’t truly the end. Just a break while Beep grows up.

Bottom line — phenomenal series ender, with plenty of room left to revisit the world and (some) of the characters. Many series questions have found a conclusion, while many others have not, and I’m hopeful that a spinoff happens sooner rather than later. Highly recommend the entire series, and I’ll certainly be rereading the series in the future.
