Within the last few years, I unknowingly purchased a book from the dollar store, that would change me into a better person for having read it. In fact, the book I purchased was the fourth in a 13.5 book series. Which of course I didn’t know at the time. Thus started my addiction to a charming and thoughtful way of storytelling.
Darynda Jones has since become one of my favorite writers. She not only unfolds a story with witticism and characters that spring from the pages with love and laughter, she creates a world, a universe where they exist! The fourth book of the Grave Series is where I began my journey. For a buck no less…smile!
I even wrote a fan email asking for her to make sure the rest of the series would end up at Dollar Tree as well. A polite reply saying it was out of her hands was my reward. (smile) I managed to find most used at Thriftybooks online and a few on ebay. When I finished the series, (sadly as I never wanted them to end!) I realized she had written other books. Go figure, a writer who writes more books?
I was delighted to find 2 of her new series, one being a trilogy called Betwixt and the other series Sunshine Vicram and immediately devoured them both. Happy to say her writing is amazing even though she broke my heart when she ended the Grave Series.
