The Gravedigger’s Son, an all new 1,001 Dark Nights novella in the Charley Davidson series from New York Times bestselling author Darynda Jones, is available now!
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Darynda Jones comes a new story in her Charley Davidson series…
The job should have been easy.
Get in. Assess the situation. Get out. But for veteran tracker Quentin Rutherford, things get sticky when the girl he’s loved since puberty shows up, conducting her own investigation into the strange occurrences of the small, New Mexico town. He knew it would be a risk coming back to the area, but he had no idea Amber Kowalski had become a bona fide PI, investigating things that go bump in the night. He shouldn’t be surprised, however. She can see through the dead as clearly as he can. The real question is, can she see through him?
But is anything that’s worth it ever easy?
To say that Amber is shocked to see her childhood crush would be the understatement of her fragile second life. One look at him tells her everything she needs to know. He’s changed. So drastically she barely recognizes him. He is savage now, a hardened—in all the right places—demon hunter, and she is simply the awkward, lovestruck girl he left behind. But she doesn’t have time to dwell on the past. A supernatural entity has set up shop, and it’s up to them to stop it before it kills again. While thousands of questions burn inside her, she has to put her concern over him, over what he’s become, aside for now. Because he’s about to learn one, undeniable fact: she’s changed, too.
**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

“There is nothing idle about my threats. My threats are hardworking. Not afraid to get their hands dirty.”
Amber Kowalski is a part Private Investigator and part psychic. While on a job for a departed soul she runs into her ex best friend/ ex love Quentin. Quentin Rutherford, who had broken her heart when he disappeared leaving with no explanation. Quentin is definitely not the same boy she fell in love with and stayed away from Amber to protect her. Now they find themselves reluctantly working together to stop an angry demon, and they might not be able to ignore their feelings for the duration.
With the last Charley Davidson 1001 knights novella in my opinion it didn’t stand up well as a standalone without having read the original series, but this one was quite the opposite. I completely giddy over having a book about Quentin and Amber because I had falling in love with them during the Charley Davidson series. Yet, even if you hadn’t read that you would have enjoyed this too. It reads as a second chance romance with a some demons, a few ghosts and a whole lot of angst.
I honestly enjoyed every moment of The Gravedigger’s Son, it had the balance of everything I love about the Charley Davidson series. Great banter, high stakes paranormal actions, romance and quality steam. I just wanted MORE , I would have loved a full length novel about them and hope they pop up in other of this series novellas!
