The Curse of the Tenth Grave

Charley Davidson #10

Reviewed by Melanie on September 14, 2017


Charley is back, but not quite herself. Hit with a bout of amnesia, Charley is living in Sleepy Hollow, New York, but doesn’t remember anything about her past life. Reyes, Cookie, Uncle Bob, and the rest of the group have of course followed Charley, but are trying to give her time to remember on her own.

Even as Janie, Charley is pulled to to Reyes even though she doesn’t know why, or what he is. As usual, Charley finds herself in trouble, but with their connection severed, Reyes isn’t around to help.

This book was a nice change from the pace, and was a great way to break up the same story line. With Charley’s amnesia, the descriptions of Reyes weren’t as monotonous as they were in previous books. Even with Charley not remembering who she is or what she does, she finds herself neck deep in poltergeists, and departed. She finds her way back to herself in the end. Learning more about herself, and Reyes, left us wondering how the next book will tie things up, and if Charley will share her new information with Reyes, or if she’ll keep her new secrets to herself.

As a Part-time PI and fulltime grim reaper, Charley Davidson has asked a lot of questions throughout her life: Why can I see dead people? Who is the hot supernatural entity following me? How do I get gum out of my sister’s hair before she wakes up? But, “How do I trap not one malevolent god, but three?” was never among them. Until now. And since those gods are on earth to kill her daughter, she has little choice but to track them down, trap them, and cast them from this dimension.

There’s just one problem. One of the three stole her heart a very long time ago. Can the Razer, a god of absolute death and destruction, change his omniscient spots, or will his allegiances lie with his brothers?

Those are just a few of the questions Charley must answer, and quick. Add to that a homeless girl running for her life, an innocent man who’s been charged with murder, and a pendant made from god glass that has the entire supernatural world in an uproar, and Charley has her hands full. If she can manage to take care of the whole world-destroying-gods thing, we’re saved. If not, well…
