Publisher's Summary

Sometimes, you have to play dirty.

I’m Paige Harper, and I clean up supernatural messes. But my personal life is something I can’t seem to straighten out.

I accidentally married a fae, and even though we've been divorced for years, Jax still manages to land me in hot water. Like, putting my house on the table at a high stakes poker game type of hot.

Now, he's been arrested for murder and the cops want to pin a series of vampire killings on him. I don't know if he did it or not. But I do know he needs to be at that poker game or else my house is gone.

In order to get Jax out, I turn to Nico, a one-eyed werewolf private detective, for help. Nico is a handsome, dangerous ladies man, and I have no intention of falling prey to his charms. 

Although, that's easier said than done as the two of us begin crawling through the dirty underbelly of the supernatural world...

It’s a good thing I brought my broom.

Grave New World is the first book in an all new paranormal mystery series filled with laughs and romance!

Love love love

Wow what a great find. First let me say I am so glad to have found this book. I loved the writers. I have never laughed so hard one minute, then gotten mad the next on behalf of the character. I seriously hope to see her get her revenge the next books. Now the narration wow just wow. I will be on the look out for more books from both the writers and the narrator loved everything way to go Ladies!

loved listening to it

The narrator was really good. I liked how she did a whiny voice for Jax and a jerky voice for Brent. I'm a Nico fan what can I say. Now I have to wait for the others to come on audio. I've read the books they're fantastic backed up by the audio they can't be beat

Cleaning or Detective

What a fun and enjoyable listen. This story was easy to listen to with great characters some of whom will give you a laugh others you’ll be second guessing their motives. I love the idea of the Venus fly trap that was very creative. And just when you thought it was all going to be wrapped up nicely you get thrown a twist. Overall I enjoyed this book and the narrator has a pleasant voice to listen to.

Meh

Intriguing premise in the preview but disappointingly executed. Some glimpses of humor and starts to interesting characters but otherwise tedious. Plot holes, lots of whining, and an and non-ending which was too confusing to even be called a cliffhanger. Decent narrator kept me from quitting early.

Not sure I want to keep this book....

■ There is a lot of blatant, in-your-face prejudice in the book and a lot of crude sexual references that I find off-putting. I'm not a prude; sex scenes don't bother me or embarrass me, but this girl ain't got no class.

■ The writers do an "okay" job of snark (there really is a skill to writing snark well), but so much of it wraps around the prejudice and crudity that it often misses the mark.

■ I'm not really sure how three people write a book together, but the writing seems pretty seamless and cohesive. The narrative voice comes from the same source.

■ Unless the boarder (Darren?) has a place in future stories, I don't see the purpose of him, other than adding a couple thousand words to the story. His place in the book doesn't offer any substance to the story line.

■ I don't find the main character particularly likable or funny; she's kind of borderline pathetic.

■ The narration is done well, character voices are discernible and seem to fit the characters.

As someone who will read a good book over and over again, I'm afraid this book wouldn't make that list. It is an okay book, easy-to-read, but it didn't grab me or make me anticipate the next installment.

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.

Supes

I second the other reviews concerned with the supe hate. Could have been better without the constant supe hate verbiage. Otherwise I found it an enjoyable quick read.

Great Story

I really enjoyed the concept of a cleaning lady for the supernatural. A strong protagonist and believable characters made this a fun story. I especially enjoyed the narrator, great job!

I recommend this book, and I can’t wait to listen to boom 2.

Prejudiced Heroine Ruins Book

While the premise is interesting & the narrator does a good job with a highly flawed story I cannot recommend this book. The heroine's unrelenting prejudice against a whole class of people (Supes) is incredibly off putting. Seriously if I heard "that's supes for you" when faced with an individual doing a bad thing one more time I was going to scream. It's shocking to me that a book where the heroine -- even when presented with evidence to the contrary by individual "supes" -- constantly expresses her hatred & distrust of a subsection of society, and is just plain mean and nasty to some of them because of her prejudices, even got published. I don't care if it's fiction, the echos of her words and actions to real life are beyond distressing - particularly as her words and justifications parallel discriminatory language used by hate groups.

Seriously, skip this one.

Torn

I am a little torn about how what to say. There were parts of this story I enjoyed, like the storyline. There were parts I didn't like and tried to skip, like the random crude comments. As a rule, I don't mind swearing, sex scenes, or the occasional crude comment but they just didn't work for me in this book. I think I would have liked it more if I had read it, not listened to it (if that makes any sense!).

I am willing to give this series another chance, but I I am leaning toward reading it.

Interesting New Approach

Review of Grave New World Book 1 Of Down and Dirty Supernatural Cleaning Services
Author Kate Karyus Quinn, Demitria Lunnetta, MarleyLynn.
Narrator Carrie Coello
Length 6 hours 11 mins

I was really excited when I came across this series of books, I loved the name of the series, Down and Dirty Supernatural Cleaning Services, the book cover looked exciting and its one of my favourite genres, my imagination was working over time, so it had a lot to live up to. Thank you Kate for giving me the chance to listen to and review your book which I enjoyed imensley

If you like supernatural fantasy, then I think you will enjoy this story, the book is full of supernatural's of every kind you can imagine. I won't go into details about the plot as the preface (intro) gives you all the information you need, and will most likely leave you hooked.

I really enjoyed the story, and was kept well entertained throughout, although I did have a few surprises, I was expecting the usual nice, clean pleasant story you normally get with this general type of book, but it was a little bit grittier, don't get me wrong I am not a prude and quite enjoy sex scenes etc in stories but found Paige the main character a little on the crude side, I would not of wanted a teenage daughter listening to the book and thinking it was okay to talk like Paige, but saying that, it suited Paige and was part of her personality. I must add that Carrie Coello did a great job of narrating this story, and felt that she portrayed Paige perfectly.

I believe that there are four books in the series so far, but only the first one is available on Audible at the minute, I am hoping that the others will be released soon, as I am looking forward to hearing about what happens next for Paige and the other characters in this story.
