With twelve hellhounds after her, pregnant Charley Davidson takes refuge at the only place she thinks they can’t get to her: the grounds of an abandoned convent. But after months of being cooped up there, Charley is ready to pop. Both metaphorically and literally since she is now roughly the size of a beached whale. Fortunately, a new case has captured her attention, one that involves a murder on the very grounds the team has taken shelter upon. A decades-old murder of the newly-vowed nun she keeps seeing in the shadows is almost enough to pull her out of her doldrums.
Charley’s been forbidden to step foot off the sacred grounds. While the angry hellhounds can’t traverse the consecrated soil, they can lurk just beyond its borders. They have the entire team on edge, especially Reyes. And if Charley didn’t know better, she would swear Reyes is getting sick. He grows hotter with every moment that passes, his heat scorching across her skin every time he’s near, but naturally he swears he’s fine.
While the team searches for clues on the Twelve, Charley just wants answers and is powerless to get them. But the mass of friends they’ve accrued helps. They convince her even more that everyone in her recent life has somehow been drawn to her, as though they were a part of a bigger picture all along. But the good feelings don’t last for long because Charley is about to get the surprise of her crazy, mixed-up, supernatural life….
It was nice to see Charley and Reyes again, a lot of things happened to them in this book.
Charley is as always, she’s doing what she wants when she wants. The only problem is that now she has more responsibility and Reyes is not too happy with her when she goes away.
Like always a lot of things happen to her, this book contains action, love, family, marriage and Reyes.
I like this book, there is less romance than in the other books but we move forward in the history. Charley’s humor and Reyes sexiness is here, I always like the other characters and I confirm that, Cookie, Bob and the others are awesome.
The terrifying thing is that Darynda leaves us with an awful end, not like in the others books, worst and the next book is really too far away from now.
The writing style is great as ever and if you like the series, this book won’t make you change your mind. Darynda has a real talent for humor and action, I like her and hope to see her in France one day.
