Summary

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 listeners, 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.**

Disappointed :(

I was so hoping that this story would continue to move the series towards Beep & Osh. I didn’t even feel like I knew the Quintin & Amber characters. As always though, Lorelei King was fabulous.

The Gravedigger's Son

This novella is fantastic. I love the Charlie Davison series so much. It was great getting a glimpse of Quinton and Amber all grown up. Their connection is intense. I hope there will be more from the Charlie Davison world in the near future! Lorelei King did amazing and brought me right back to these characters!

love the author, hated to see it end so quickly.

Loreli King was amazing as always.

Yes, I get that it was a novella, but there was so much potential that I think wasn't met. I was disappointed in how short and how rushed the story was.

Darynda does it again!

I wish it was a longer story but other than that it was very compelling. I particularly liked that I finally found out some background information about Quentin. It is really cool to see him and Amber as grown-ups. If you like or should I say love the Charlie Davison series, this is a must-read.

Amber and Quentin grown up

I loved seeing Amber and Quentin again and I hope that this is just the beginning of a new series. I'd really like to get more background on what happened and see where this second chance can take them. Thanks, Darynda Jones for writing and Lorelei King for narrating.
