Sixth Grave On the Edge Narration by Lorelei King

Lorelei King Narrator

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.

Plot Review

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.

Seveth grave and No Body Audiobook

We are super excited about this!!!

Seventh Grave and No Body

Blurb:
Twelve. Twelve of the deadliest beasts ever forged in the fires of hell have escaped onto our plane, and they want nothing more than to rip out the jugular of Charley Davidson and serve her lifeless, mangled body to Satan for dinner. So there’s that. But Charley has more on her plate than a mob of testy hellhounds. For one thing, her father has disappeared, and the more she retraces his last steps, the more she learns he was conducting an investigation of his own, one that has Charley questioning everything she’s ever known about him. Add to that an ex-BFF who is haunting her night and day, a rash of suicides that has authorities baffled, and a drop-dead sexy fiancé who has attracted the attentions of a local celebrity, and Charley is not having the best week of her life.

A tad north of hell, a hop, skip, and a jump past the realm of eternity, is a little place called Earth, and Charley Davidson, grim reaper extraordinaire, is determined to do everything in her power to protect it.

We’re doomed!
Coming October 2014

  6. Sixth Grave was so good! LOVED IT!! Can’t wait for Seventh Grave! I haven’t listen to the series in audio (just clips), but I know Lorelei King is a wonderful narrator.

    • I’m really glad you enjoyed it too. I love Lorelei King, but I will say, she really outdoes herself with this series. I highly recommend you give it a try on audio.

  7. I would love to experience this book in audio format.

  8. Love this series. I own 1 & 5 and would love to complete my collection.

  13. Damn not open internationally, that’s a pity 🙂 I’m listening to Sixth Grave on the Edge at the moment I keep having to stop for breaks because I’m laughing so much and to rewind it most of the time! lol Absolutely love Lorelei King as a narrator one of my top 5 faves! Sometimes I’m a bit fussy when it comes to the narrators because since with my sight and not being able to read anymore listening to books means a lot more especially when I get an audiobook to re-read of one of my favourite books only to find the narrator isn’t putting much into it and its disappointing, I love when narrators put such enthusiasm into the books like Lorelei does, it makes you love the books even more and brings a little something extra to them 😀

    • Unfortunately, we are limited by the rules given to us. I’m sure it isn’t fun finding contests that aren’t open in your country.

      I agree with you about Lorelei King. She is one of my favorite narrators, especially with this series. She is the perfect fit for these characters.

      • Ah its no problem I got all fan-girly when I heard that you could choose a pre-order of Seventh Grave! lol 🙂 Thank Melanie

        yeah I agree out all the great narrators I’ve heard so far I can’t put their narration with the Charley Davidson series it doesn’t fit 🙂 Lorelei is definitely the best!

  14. This is my fav series ever! IT has everything anyone could ever ask for. Sixth grave was one of the best!

  15. I’d pick 5th Grave

  16. Oooh! Do I have to make up my mind right now? I’d probably pick Sixth Grave on the Edge.

  17. I have to confess that I’ve not read any of these though they’ve been on my TBR list… so I can’t say what I love the best… :-)))

  18. I love this series, it is one that I can re-read over again, and still ‘fall in love’ with a cast of wonderful, funny, sexy and complex characters.

  19. I’d pick Seventh Grave.
    I really love everything about these books…they are so entertaining! I especially love how Charley keeps persevering through everything that happens to her and dies her best fir everyone in her life.

  20. LOVE Charlie and Reyes. Can’t wait for the next adventure.

  21. I can’t wait! I want the new book!!

  22. I would choose Sixth Grave….still catching up and don’t own this book yet!

  23. I would ask for Sixth Grave on the edge. Not sure my library will order it and I NEED my aunt to ‘read’ it. My aunt, my mother and I follow this series (along with a half dozen friends). Thank you for this opportunity!

    • If your library has the series up until this one, I would think that they would continue the series. Also, check their website and see if they have a place where you can request that they purchase a title. I do that all the time. It also puts you on the list for first when the book comes in. 🙂

  24. Have I mentioned how left out I feel on this series?!! lol I still haven’t started it but man all of you ladies have me seriously regretting that. One day hopefully I’ll get a little extra time and can splurge. I’ve got the first 3 or 4 already. One day. Glad you enjoyed it!
