This was probably my least favorite book in the series so far. While all my favorite things in this series were there, the crew being trapped on a convent was a bit stale. Charley, Reyes, Cookie, Ubie and the rest of the crew are all working together, trying to figure out how to defeat the hell hounds that keep the sacred ground surrounded.
While the story has plenty of conflict, most Charley stories have a bit more action, and a lot more laughs. Out of all of the books this one was the most serious, and while the subject matter was a bit deeper than usual, the story didn’t move along as quickly as usual.
While I enjoyed the story moving forward, it felt like it took a long time for the story to really get rolling and not just Charley describing how sexy Reyes is, which was even more repetitive in this book, almost like Jones wasn’t sure how to move the story along, so five paragraphs describing Reyes’ eyelashes would suffice.
I loved that Cookie and Uncle Bob’s storyline move forward, and the moment was my favorite part of the book itself. We’re looking forward to the next book, but hope that it moves more in the direction of the Charley Davidson we know and love.
