Whether she's dealing with other gods or acting as the Grim Reaper, Charley Davidson's adventures are never dull.
Charley's been in exile for what seems like a century but is in truth only 10 days when her husband, the god Rey'azikeen, "the Hellmaker," otherwise known as Reyes Alexander Farrow, appears to her in the Sahara Desert, where they have sex so hot the sand beneath them melts into glass. She'd been exiled for creating a new dimension of hell that's causing death and panic in their hometown of Albuquerque, where her Uncle Bob is a cop married to her best friend. Charley's daughter, Beep, and her caretakers have been evacuated to a safe house, but Charley, Reyes, and many of their friends are holed up in a warehouse trying to come up with a plan to close that hell dimension, which is expanding rapidly and making more and more people sick. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is desperately searching for a remedy, but since the problem is supernatural, only Charley and her fellow gods can solve it. Charley knows that something about her mother's death shortly after giving birth to her is a clue to their salvation, but so far she's been unable to get any useful information from her sister or Uncle Bob, who were both there at the time. As all her friends struggle to come up with some way to close the hell dimension, one of them brings her to the Vatican, where she discovers a box filled with mysterious powder that may hold the answer.
Melding inventive supernatural activities with scorching sex scenes, this final entry in Jones' series answers many questions but is a tad complicated. Readers who want to make sense of it all are well-advised to start all the way back with First Grave on the Right (2011).
