Sixth Grave On the Edge Narration by Lorelei King
There is what I call “perfect teams in Audiobooks.” These teams don’t often happen, but when they do, it is simply Magical!! This is exactly how I feel about this duo of author and narrator. Their Audiobooks deliver time after time an exceptional listening experience.
It takes an extraordinary talent to continuously grasp the author’s intent, and once again, Lorelei King captures with perfection the essence of these characters and the story.
Her timing and pace allow the humor and the wit in the dialogue to flow effortlessly to deliver the playfulness so typical on Ms. Jones writing.
In Sixth Grave on the Edge, we get a taste of Ms. King’s ability to not only connect and placed you with ease and expertise to the story, but to bring your heart and soul to the emotional parts of the book.
Her diversity of voices complete her performance; the flawless interpretation of Charley, Reyes (OH MY!) and the rest of the cast make Sixth Grave On the Edge Audiobook another awesome must listen and not be missed by readers and listeners alike.

This is my favorite series on audio. The team of Darynda Jones writing and Lorelei King reading cannot be topped. This series brings everything I love in a great Urban Fantasy novel. It has suspense, snarky humor, violence and extremely hot sexiness. Put all of that along with wonderful characters and it is a recipe for greatness.
In this story, we have Charley dealing with her father, who has sold the bar to Reyes. There is something going on with him and Charley is worried. Reyes is trying everything he can to woo Charley even more. He bought her the apartment building she lives in. He bought her the asylum where Rocket and his sister lives.
One major side plot in this story, is Charley and Cookie trying to get Uncle Bob to “grow a pair” and ask Cookie out on a date. There is a decent amount of the story given to this part of the plot. It is pretty good as Cookie goes on “dates” to try to make him jealous.
As always, Charley working on a few cases, some paid and some for departed that she comes across. At the beginning of the story, she has a naked old man riding in Misery with her. She desperately wants to find why he is still around, because she is not a fan of sharing her beloved Jeep with a naked old man.
We meet a new character who will have a large role in the future, I believe. He is known only as “the dealer”. He is a demon, who is eating souls. I also see Mr. Wong coming into play at some point. There has to be a reason for him.
I don’t want to say too much more, because I don’t want to give anything away. Let’s just say, that this book is as good, if not better, than the first five books. It will make you laugh and it will make you cry (yes, my eyes did water at one point, I was really glad I was in my car and not at my desk at work). We have tons of Cookie, Angel, Reyes, Uncle Bob and Swopes. We have some of Rocket, Strawberry, Amador, Amber, Quentin and.Captain Eckert.
