First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
For a first book, start of a series, I rate this a generous 4 stars. Not really sure if that is entirely deserved. As the main case ended it felt too long, then came the side story of Charly's love-live.
Nice sex-scenes (explicit but rather non-kinky and straight).
Like the POV-tone of the MC Charley, snarky, but sometimes also a bit unsure and whiny, but not too whiny.
World-building nicely integrated in the story as the MC does not know everything, even in the end there are things hidden from her. So far luckily no Zombies, no Vampires, so that is a plus, also no love-triangle, and no insta-love (open to interpretation, some might say it is insta-love).
For the older YA-Generation, would not really see this for a 12 yr-old, I guess 14 and above. Bloody death scenes, torture described, and all that. Maybe not even YA but more NA.
Recommended four stars, might read the next book, but not too soon, I think.
