Eight grave after dark - Darynda Jones

Charley Davidson has enough going on without having to worry about twelve hellhounds hot on her trail. She is, after all, incredibly pregnant and feeling like she could pop at any moment. But, just her luck, twelve deadly beasts from hell have chosen this time to escape onto our plane, and they've made Charley their target. And so she takes refuge at the only place she thinks they can't get to her: the grounds of an abandoned convent. Of course, if hellhounds aren't enough, Charley also has a new case to hold her attention: the decades-old murder of a newly-vowed nun she keeps seeing in the shadows of the convent.
Add to that the still unsolved murder of her father, the strange behavior of her husband, and Charley's tendency to attract the, shall we say, undead, and she has her hands full...but also tied.

My thoughts:
I did like, I did read it fast, but, oh I just wish it would end! I read the blurb for book 9 and it was SUCH a filler. It was more than a filler, it seemed like a book about nothing. But that is book 9, this is book 8.

Charley is very very very preggers, about to burst. They are hiding at a convent since hellhounds are after them.

We have a wedding.
We have angry hellhounds.
We have Reyes sneaking around.
A new arrival.
Searching for her dad's killer
Wondering what the Vatican is up to.
Wondering what Lucifer is up to.

But yes I enjoyed it, but yes I also wish it would end soon. A series that goes on and on, they tend to turn sour. It has not happened yet but I am scared.

  3. I've read a couple series where we got into the double digits without too much filler along the way, so hopefully that's the case with Charley! Maybe book 9 won't be as much filler as you think:)

  5. I am worried too that it won't continue to entertain. I did like this one because it had some revelations.

  6. It would be such a shame to see a series gone sour.

  7. See! That means that you don't love Reyes as much as I do! He is MINE! *grumpy face*

  8. I do love this series. I enjoyed this book. I do see it as a filler, but this series is a LOL time for me and this book still brought that. I don't know how many more books, but I do agree that there shouldn't be too many more.

  10. Sounds like an interesting series. That sometimes happens with long series and a filler every so often. I hope that won't be the case for the next one.

  11. I'm feeling the worry, too. I haven't read this one yet, but the last few feel like the series arc is spinning its wheels. Still...it's Charley and Reyes and I love that.

    1. I do love them, but that spinning thing, yeah

  12. Wait so she has a baby in this book but the next book sounds like it's filler? You'd think a huge event like that in someone's life would shake things up in the series a little, pity. I look forward to seeing the verdict when you tackle book 9.

  14. I have this series to read. Yes there comes a time when a series needs to end. Must be hard though for author/publisher to call it a day!

  15. Whenever I think about Charley Davidson book I have a strong wish to drink a cup of coffee. :) I'm a little behind with this series but I will catch up soon.

  16. I must be the only one who hasn't read her yet :\ I feel left out...

  17. I agree about going on too long... I hope this one doesn't. I wasn't a fan of books 6 and 7, so for me, this one was better. But the ending made me mad. We'll see where book 9 takes us.
