Dell has persuaded the Bloodless army to fight alongside her pack in Butler, but she still has to get there. Halfway home, the rift detonates, blasting out a magic surge that sweeps across the globe, frying electronics and spells alike. Leaving her with no way to get home except on her own two--or four--feet.

 

Dangerous times demand equally lethal alliances, and she has to make a risky deal if she wants to reach the front lines before it's too late. The bargain grants an ancient fae power over her, a hold she vowed no man would ever have on her again, but freedom requires sacrifice.

 

As the threshold between Earth and Faerie erodes, humans and supernaturals alike are in danger of being erased as the fae seek to claim this world as their own. This is the moment when new legends arise and old gods fall, when fates unspool and futures unravel, when battles are won and lives are lost.

The war isn't just coming. It's here.

Over the Moon concludes the arc series for the Gemini and Lorimar Pack. We may return to the Black Dog world, but for now Dell’s story and many others are ending.

 

I’d say this series is best read after at least starting the Gemini series with book one, if not beginning with the Black Dog series. Theirry who is our heroine in the Black Dog series plays a major role in the Lorimar Pack books and world.

 

It’s been a thrilling adventure from start to finish. I feel in love with Ms. Edwards writing and world when I read Dog with a Bone book one in the Black Dog series. I’ve come to relish and savor the stories, characters, and world.

 

This one brings back many of the old characters: Thierry and Shaw, Cam and Graeson, and many more. Fans will not be disappointed in the return of favorite characters nor the conclusion that is given with each getting an epilogue at the end.

 

As for Dell her adventures have taught her to rely on others, think things through, and be more careful. She’s grown into a better Beta for her pack and a stronger more confident women.

 

Earth and Faerie are at war. It’s an eye opener for the humans and a turning point for the supernaturals. Dell and Isaac are hard pressed to stay in one piece and come out alive on the other side. Deals are being made and allies are coming to help. It’s a bad place, but what can you do? Except deal with the hard circumstances and hope everything will turn out ok at the end.

 

Over the Moon ending on a wonderful note. I’m hoping we get a few more spin-offs for some of the characters featured in the series. Isaac’s twin brother Theo’s epilogue was an eye opener and has me wanting to know his story.

 

If you are a fan of Urban Fantasy. I highly recommend picking up the Black Dog, Gemini, and Lorimar Pack series.

 

Rated: 4 Stars

Lorimar Pack, Book 2

 

Prison is no one's idea of a good time, and it's even worse for Dell. Confinement has her inner wolf snarling as she paces their cell, and there's no end in sight. Just as she reaches her breaking point, the pack liaison shows up with an offer she can’t refuse. Dell’s freedom in exchange for going to Faerie and recapturing the fae prince responsible for her current digs.

 

But this fool's errand won't be a solo mission. Isaac Cahill has lost Dell twice, and he’ll be damned if she slips through his fingers again. This time, he’s not letting her out of his sight. Even if it means earning more than a few love bites from his pissed off she-wolf.

What they discover on their perilous quest is that war is closer than anyone imagined. As trusted allies fall and dangerous new threats emerge, Dell discovers one defining truth. Isaac is hers, and she'll fight to the death for him. And, at the rate this war is coming, she might not have long to wait.

Wolf at the Door was the continuation of Dell’s story from Promise the Moon. It’s a suspenseful and fast-paced urban fantasy adventure.

 

The Lorimar Pack is a spin-off from the Black Dog series and a continuation from the Gemini series. I would recommend reading the Gemini series, before picking up the Lorimar Packor even better starting from the begging with the Black Dog.

 

Dell is in a little bit of a pickle. She did a no no and now she’s in jail. Thierry pops up and offers deal a chance to get out and fix the situation. The only way to do that is to take a trip to Faerie where hazards luck at every corner.

 

Faerie was full of adventure, twisted politics, powerful fan, and side games. Theirs danger around every corner and things are looking turbulent. The Faerie world is intense and we learn that war is not far off and might be closer then everyone expected.

 

The romance between Isaac and Dell is changing. I understand Dell’s heartache, but we finally learn the reason as to why Issac left in the first place and it made sense. They both needed to grow and now they are at a point where a relationship can start to bloom.

 

Wolf at the Door was another terrific addition. If you like Urban Fantasy I highly recommend picking up the Black Dog, Gemini, and Lorimar Pack series.

 

Rated: 4 Stars

Reading progress update: I've read 22%.
Over the Moon (Gemini Book 6) - Hailey Edwards

 

I really love the world Ms. Edwards has created. I feel in love with the characters and world when I picked up the Black Dog series and then she branched out and gave other characters their own books in the world. I didn't like Dell so much, but after book two and now three for her. I'm actually enjoying her character and what is going on around her. 

 

Wonderful Urban Fantasy. Really enjoying the newest installment that's out.

Dog with a Bone
Dog with a Bone - Hailey Edwards Note: I do NOT recommend reading the rest of this series. Thierry turns into an awful wimpering mess, the romance is shot to hell, and nothing makes a lick of sense. Enjoy this story for what it is, then forget the rest of the series exists.

Original review:

A pretty awesome story written poorly.

The writing and lack of world building was awful. It was confusing as hell, there were no explanations for anything. So you just had to go with it like, "yeah, it's a flobbernoggen, of course." Well, it sounded like a fucking hydra-sandworm, but thanks for the explanation, Madge.

That being said, the plot was awesome and even though the characters and their abilities aren't explained AT ALL, this was a really fun story. I was totally into it. The humor was on point, the romance wasn't too heavy, and the action was both entertaining and intense.

But dear god, there is literally zero world building and I was mildly confused for at least half the book. So you'll have to decide for yourself whether or not the fun factor will outweigh the confusion factor if you read this.

Beta than an Alpha or just as good!
Promise the Moon - Hailey Edwards
”Daddy didn’t come home.” One plump hand gripped the bark. “Did you eat him?” “What?” I pushed to my feet. “No. I would never hurt your daddy.” The girl recoiled, disappearing for a moment before her voice drifted to me. “He said the magic wolves eat bad fae.”

[This quote is from the advanced reader’s copy and may have been deleted or altered.]

 

The Lorimar Pack, exiles from a dysfunctional pack, establishes a new territory for themselves located near a fissure between realms. Some of the Faery’s citizens are the bogeymen Earthborn Fae children are warned about in bedtime stories. Cord Graeson and Camille Ellis, the alphas of the pack, volunteer their pack to patrol the fissure but Earthen Conclave business temporarily takes the alphas away leaving Lorimar Pack’s Beta Dell Preston in charge.

 

Dell survived her previous pack by acting opposite to her nature. Establishing her dominance and engendering the respect amongst the warg pack is a step toward leaving personal ghosts in the past. There’s also a broken heart with which to contend.

 

Establishing a new structure, training recruits for patrol and managing a flirtatious witch seem all in a day’s work. Riiiiight. Kidnappings and strange happenings disrupt their progress. Interspecies politics and relationships are at risk. Dell is feeling the pressure and things are about to get worse.

 

“Promise the Moon,” a Gemini spin-off, lives up to its promise with snappy dialogue, a tangled plot, and an engaging heroine with droll humor. The mystery and heroine affectively unravel from beginning to end. Dell’s snarky voice may be excessive at times but the mystery sucks the reader back into the story. The romantic elements link to Dell’s complicated past (to which there is possibility for another mystery) and to her duality. This heroine has choices. What is easy for the warg is not easy for the woman!

 

Dell proves to be worthy of her own series. She’s a nice blend of strong, tender, stubborn, and brave. The ending of “Promise the Moon” will leave you anxious for “Wolf at the Door,” book 2 in the Lorimar Pack series!
