Darynda Jones has done a mind blowing job with this book. A brilliant finish to the entire series with just an opening for an off-shoot with the last line..
The main story had Reyes starting a zombie apocalypse and Charley stopping it and the reveal of Charley’s mother’s killer which shocked me so much that now I have adrenaline coursing my body…
Charley, as in the previous 12 books, was the best main character, she was funny, bold, kickass and in this, she was doubly seen here as she would do anything to protect her daughter Beep. Her love life… Omg… Omg… I have always been massively jealous of her relationship with Reyes. It was so perfect. Darynda Jones has made me long for such a love… Sighhh..
This book has Charley’s entire family on her side fighting the last war. I loved every bond she shared with her motley of friends and family. My niggles never showed up in the entire read, a few tears sure did. I loved the entire series.. They rocked!!
Emotional moments, sexy moments, scorching hot moments, along with a complete weaving of all the plot lines made this book the perfect action packed climax to the series (pun intended… Come on it is Reyes and his smoldering glances!!)
What’s next, Darynda? So excited!!
I received an ARC from NetGalley and publisher St. Martin’s Press, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!!

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author DARYNDA JONES won a Golden Heart and a RITA for her manuscript First Grave on the Right. A born storyteller, she grew up spinning tales of dashing damsels and heroes in distress for any unfortunate soul who happened by, annoying man and beast alike. Darynda lives in the Land of Enchantment, also known as New Mexico, with her husband and two beautiful sons, the Mighty, Mighty Jones Boys.
Charley Davidson, Grim Reaper extraordinaire, is pissed. She’s been kicked off the earthly plane for eternity. But someone’s looking out for her, and she’s allowed to return after a mere hundred years in exile. Is it too much to hope for that not much has changed? Apparently it is. Bummer.
She’s missed her daughter. She’s missed Reyes. She’s missed Cookie and Garrett and Uncle Bob. But now that she’s back on earth, it’s time to put to rest burning questions that need answers. What happened to her mother? How did she really die? Who killed her? It all comes to a head in an epic showdown between good and evil in this final smart and hilarious novel.
