DJones-Eighth Grave After DarkCharley Davidson has enough going on without having to worry about twelve hellhounds hot on her trail. She is, after all, incredibly pregnant and feeling like she could pop at any moment. But, just her luck, twelve deadly beasts from hell have chosen this time to escape onto our plane, and they’ve made Charley their target. And so she takes refuge at the only place she thinks they can’t get to her: the grounds of an abandoned convent. Of course, if hellhounds aren’t enough, Charley also has a new case to hold her attention: the decades-old murder of a newly-vowed nun she keeps seeing in the shadows of the convent.

Add to that the still unsolved murder of her father, the strange behavior of her husband, and Charley’s tendency to attract the, shall we say, undead, and she has her hands full…but also tied. While the angry hellhounds can’t traverse the consecrated soil, they can lurk just beyond its borders like evil sentries, so Charley has been forbidden from leaving the sacred grounds. Luckily, she has her loyal team with her, and they’re a scrappy bunch who won’t let a few thirsty hellhounds deter them.

While the team scours the prophesies, searching for clues on the Twelve, for a way to kill them or at least send them back to hell, 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. Their presence is comforting. But the good feelings don’t last for long because Charley is about to get the surprise of her crazy, mixed-up, supernatural life….

  1. Love Darynda Jones, Charley Davidson Series, don’t have any Darklight yet. Thanks for the chance.

    • So would I! While on vacation in Baltimore I of course had to follow his last steps. His works were always a favorite of mine during school. Reading some of his personal correspondence was the highlight of the trip! They even have the letter he wrote to his Aunt expressing his undying love for Virginia (his 13yr old first cousin, whom he did marry.) posted next to their burial site. I found it disturbing but fascinating and yet all so fitting for Mr. Poe.

  2. I would definitely love to meet Louisa May Alcott. I have always loved the book Little Women and I would love to get the opportunity to ask her a million questions about the March sisters.

    • This is sadly one of my book nerd fails. I am ashamed to say I have not read Little Women yet. I definitely need to make more time for the classics! :)

  3. I would totally meet King Tut! I’ve always been fascinated by his story, so it would be pretty awesome! I would obviously ask about the day he died.

  4. That is a tough one, their are so many intriguing historical figures that I would love to meet. At the top though would have to be Queen Elizabeth I and Marie Curie. Both were incredible women, whose brains I would love to pick.

    • Wouldn’t it be awesome to convene a meeting of all the past presidents and let them debate current politics?! I’d love to be a fly on that wall!!!

    • If I was going with more recently lost celebrities he’d be near the top of my list for sure, but my first choice would be Heath Ledger. I loved all of his movies!

  5. Maybe Abraham Lincoln, to talk about the challenges he encountered during his presidency. If it were time travel rather than a ghost, maybe suggest he go to the theater another night.

    • I don’t think there’d be enough hours in a day for that conversation! But isn’t that just it though? That’s what amazes me most when I go on historical tours, just really thinking about how the way of life and how much circumstances have changed over time. It’s truly awe-inspiring!

  6. This is too hard to pick one… but someone I always wanted to talk with was Anne McCaffrey.

  7. I would want to meet Jim Morrison!! Have always been a Doors fan and always said if I was alive in that era I would have followed him anywhere!!

  8. I’m gonna cheat and pick two, William Shakespeare and James Dean. Obviously for different reasons. ????

  9. Really tough question since I’ve never really thought about this one much. Maybe J.R.R Tolkien.
