Wolf at the Door (Gemini Book 5) - Hailey Edwards

The story of Dell and the Lorimar pack continues in this heart-pounding story and I couldn't help but love it.

Wolf At The Door takes Dell and her friends to Faerie. It was a really fascinating journey, to be honest. The thing I loved most was that it was not as magical as I initially thought. The story has a ton of twists and turns, both on Faerie and on the earth plane, and I loved where the story went. I have to admit that this was my first visit to Faerie, because I'm reading these books out of order *hides in shame*. But I loved seeing the fae world through Dell's eyes. It was an intriguing experience, seeing it through the eyes of a non-fae creature, because she wasn't as enamored by that world as I would imagine an earth fae would be. She was able to question certain things, and not let them compel her to ignore the danger around her, while at the same time not recognize the danger in other details.

Dell still has a lot of growing to do, and a lot of baggage that she needs to deal with, but she's slowly getting there. As with the previous book in the series, I loved seeing the difference between Dell's human and wolf sides. Not only was it a intriguing aspect of the story, it helped understand Dell more. I know I said this before, but the way Edwards created the warg mythology in her books is really unique and I like the fact that the human side and the wolf side are two separate entities in these stories.

The pace was awesome, as expected, and there were a lot of surprises during this book. A few things I did not anticipate happened, and I quite enjoyed that. I don't want to give away too many spoilers, so I'll leave it at that. But just know that I loved this book and that I am very anxious to see what happens next.

Grier Woolworth spends her nights weaving spooky tales of lost souls and tragedies for tourists on the streets of downtown Savannah. Hoop skirt and parasol aside, it’s not a bad gig. The pay is crap, but the tips keep the lights on in her personal haunted mansion and her pantry stocked with ramen.

 

Life is about as normal as it gets for an ex-necromancer hiding among humans. Until the society that excommunicated Grier offers her a second chance at being more than ordinary. Too bad no one warned her the trouble with being extraordinary is it can get you killed.

 

Warning: This book contains one ex-con/ex-heiress with a pet zombie parakeet who lives next door to her ex-army/ex-crush. Brace yourself, we’re talking more exes than a pirate treasure map here.

How to Save an Undead Life is a brand new series by Hailey Edwards. I fell into the mystery and dramatic adventure of who and what Grier Woolworth is.

 

WOW I’m not sure where to start. This book is setting us up for one amazing adventure. Grier is thrown into the deep end and is not prepared for it. I felt for her. She’s one hot mess with some serious PTSD. You might wonder what happened, well lets just say her past is a tragic one and she didn’t have a chance. She also doesn’t know her background, has gifts she doesn’t know about, and everyone wants a piece of her. It’s a emotional roller coaster ride for the reader and Grier.

 

I liked the characters introduced and found them intriguing. The few friends Grier has are solid. I think she’s going to need those friends in the future. I absolutely loved her house, Woolly. Most think the house is haunted, but I think it’s more. The house is the only thing she has left of the caregiver she adored. We also meet Boaz, the neighbor boy and her long time crush. I’m not sure what is going on with these two. They where/are friends and may have been more if the events from her past hadn’t happened and now who knows where things will go.

 

This one is field with question’s, answer’s, mystery’s, more question’s, and some nasty stuff that Grier isn’t prepared for. I couldn’t put How to Save an Undead Life down and I’m excited to see what happens next.

REVIEW BY MERISSA - A Hint of Frost (Araneae Nation #1) by Hailey Edwards
A Hint of Frost - Hailey Edwards
It's not often that someone can do something different with a well known genre but Hailey Edwards has managed it. There are a lot of different clans in this world, all with confusing (to me!) names but the life and spark that Hailey has created is wonderful. There are aspects of this story that I was cringing at to begin with - as you are supposed to! It's written in a way that makes it horribly good. But then as you read more and understand more, you see how something has been abused and debased. It becomes less horrible as an act and more horrible towards the person doing it. Confused? Then give this book a try and see for yourself.
 
The world is well written and you can tell a lot of thought has been put into this world, the clans in it and the relationships between people, both those of inside and outside the clan. The characters are all very well written and even though it is written from the first person POV, nothing is lost.
 
This world is too good to read just one book and then leave. The others are now firmly on my T-B-R list.

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.
