Pick of the Week

There are some good releases coming out this week, but I think for my pick I am going to have to go with The Curse of Tenth Grave from Darynda Jones. I am interested to see how things progress after the events in Ninth Grave.

the curse of tenth graveSynopsis…

Part-time PI and full-time 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 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.

But one of them stole her heart a very long time ago. Can a god of absolute death and destruction change his omniscient spots, or will his allegiance lie with his brothers?

Those are just some of the questions Charley must answer, and quick. Add to that a homeless girl on the run for her life, a man who’s been framed for murdering a woman who is still very much alive, and a pendant made from god glass that has the entire supernatural world in an uproar, 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…

I got my copy already, but I chose to read Shadow Riders by Christine Feehan first, which I have been quite enjoying. It reads like a “Feehan” book, unlike some of the past few stories have. All in all, this is a nice release week, I must say.

    I am about half-way thru Shadow Rider and I am so happy that it is more like her Ghost series and not more smex than story. The lead h does get a bit annoying but I don’t know if that is a tribute to good writing or just irrirtating.
    Still I am really liking it so far.
    I have the Curse on the Tenth Grave on my to be read when I get it from the library. Just checked out the reviews and it sounds great…. just not in the zone for it.

      Weird, I was the same about 10th Grave. Really looking forward to it…in a while. Shadow Rider did read like old-school Feehan, didn’t it? I was glad. Unfortunately, it does make me wonder about the “ghostwriter” claims some have made about recent books, because not all of them do anymore. It is weird.

    Can’t wait!! I love both authors, I am buying both books this weekend. I have jury duty next week and plan on sitting there just reading without interruptions ….unless they call my name of course 😉

    I just finished 10th Grave I enjoyed the book even though it took a long time to get into the stuff that was left from the 9th book. For the first half of the book Charlie was funny, loving, and stubborn. Reyas for the most part just pissed me off with how he was behaving with Charlie. There is a nice twist curve ball thrown in at the end of this book that sets up for book 11. Many of the side characters from previous books return in this one. Over all I would give it a 4.5 stars, 5 for Cookie, and Charlie, 3 for Reyas, 5 for the other characters brought back into the series (those that did not go to New York).

    Oh btw you need a edit function because I forgot to say now on to my next book that is not in this genre but still Science Fiction/Fantasy – United as One by Pittacus Lore (Number Four series). I have enjoyed the series since the movie and I see Kids reading them when I am subbing at Middle Schools, so I started reading the series.
