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 murdering the daughter of a degenerate gambler, 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…

In this continuation of The Charley Davidson series Charley is keeping a few big secrets from Mr. Big and Sexy aka Reyes. She has a pendant made from god glass that can trap a god inside of it and only the god that trapped them can release them. She has to decide whether or not she will need to use it to save Beep.

The Charley Davidson series is one of my absolute favorites and I was not disappointed! If I had to pick one thing that wasn’t quite as great as usual it would be the slogans, bumper stickers, t-shirt headings at the beginning of each chapter, other than that the story stayed strong with new elements and of course, trouble. Charley’s god name really should have been Trouble because she can find it without even looking, which keeps you laughing from start to finish.

  1. Love this series! I have to admit, I'm a little behind :(

  2. Shame on me for not starting this series, since I have had my eye on it for quite some time. I love that the following books are as good as the first ones.
