Release Week Review! Bone Driven (Founding # 2) Hailey Edwards!
Bone Driven - Hailey Edwards

 

 

The bayou is burning, the battle is just beginning - and Luce Boudreau is smack in the middle of no-man's land . . .


Life as a cop in Canton Town, Mississippi, is never dull - particularly when hiding deep within you is a demon bent on the apocalypse. Luce is doing her best to pretend her two worlds aren't crashing into each other, but what should be a routine arson investigation takes a shocking turn when Luce discovers a link between the suspects and her own dark secrets. There's no turning back, even though her search for the truth threatens to burn her old life down around her.
Lines are being drawn in a war Luce barely understands, and she just might be on the wrong side of them. Now she must embrace her powerful destiny, or the ones she loves most will pay the ultimate price.


Book Two in the powerfully addictive fantasy series The Foundling, perfect for fans of Ilona Andrews, Jenn Stark and Helen Harper

 


The second book in the Foundling series, Bone Driven is a fascinating read that draws you in and refuses to let you go.

 

The characters in this urban fantasy are strong, compelling and endlessly intriguing, about the time you think you have them figured out, they add something new to the mix and you have more facets of their characters that hooks into your curiosity gene and ensures that you are gonna come back for more. Luce Boudreau, the heroine of the series certainly pulls readers into the story as she some mysterious depths that appeal to readers… well I really have to be honest and say all the characters seem to be that way. There’s not a lot of romance in the book, just hints and some sizzling chemistry between Luce and of her guys but there are lots of bonds and connections that are intriguing and capture reader’s attention.

 

The story is fast paced as there is never a dull moment to be found and there is lots of intrigue and surprises throughout the story to keep the readers on the edge of their seats and quite a few characters also add to the suspense as you try to determine if they are friend, foe or maybe they are sheep in wolf’s clothing and going to do a total about face one day in the future. The author made it easy to imagine each and every scene as they played out and brought them along with each of the characters to vivid life, so it was easy to become caught up in all the happenings and there was no way for me to put the book down, once I began.

 

On a side note, I haven’t read the first book in the Foundling series yet (which I will be remedying soon) and while I had no trouble figuring things out, I feel that they should be read in sequence to have a complete understanding of this unique and fascinating world and the events that led up to this book.

HEART OF ICE by HAILEY EDWARDS
A Heart of Ice - Hailey Edwards

I had started this story a while ago and thought spiders - yuck. And then stopped reading. But I started it again and really liked it. Short and sexy story.

Quite original.
Bayou Born - Hailey Edwards Bayou Born - Hailey Edwards

The first half was brilliant.

 

After the big revelation it got a bit OTT, but still a very good read and I enjoyed it - it felt a bit more fantastic than UF normally does, but it was well written and the characters were interesting and likable.

 

The love interest was also quite good - not Currran-level good, but still yummy enough :)

The Beginner's Guide to Necromancy, Book 3

 

Grier finally has the one thing she’s always wanted: Boaz Pritchard. Too bad her dream boyfriend is keeping her up nights, just not in a sweaty or fun way. Boaz has dialed down the Southern charm and stopped returning her calls. His job forces him to keep secrets, but his radio silence is cranking up her suspicions. He’s a shameless flirt, but he’s her shameless flirt…right?

 

Soon an attack on Woolworth House leaves her with bigger problems than he loves me, he loves me not. Vampires are on the prowl, and they aren’t the only predators circling. A new threat has emerged, one with blood rights to Grier. With enemies closing in on all sides, she must choose her allies, and the decision could make or break her…and her heart.

 

Warning: This book contains a buttload of zombie parakeet poop. Like grab a poncho and thank me later. Watch out, y’all. It’s about to hit the fan. Hearts will break, and heads will roll. Literally.

** Note: You do need to read this series in order.

 

How to Break an Undead Heart is by far the best in the Beginner’s Guide to Necromancy series to date. I devoured this extraordinary novel in one sitting.

 

WOW, the title should have been a dead give away, but I wasn’t expecting what happens to happen. The author left me an emotional wreck and I’m still getting tears in my eyes, when I think about what happened.

 

The story takes place close to where How to Claim an Undead Soul ends. Not much time has passed between books. Grier and company sparkle off the pages. Boaz is out on a confidential assignment, Amelie is working through her house arrest, and Linus is trying to help Grier get knowledge on her necromancy skills.

 

Their are a few different conflicts introduced in this one. The master is still trying to take Grier under his care, Linus and Grier are trying to understand what Grier can do, and Boaz is being sketchy.

 

In the last book Boaz said he was all in and it seams like they where finally going to be TOGETHER, but she has some concerns that he’s not as in as he said he was, especially since he’s talking to Amelie all the time and only shows up when Grier is severely hurt. I really liked Boaz and was hoping for the underdog to come out on top, but what Boaz does made me say Goodbye.

 

As for Linus; I still don’t see him as a lover, but the possibility is open. At this time he’s more a friend and teacher. I liked that we got to see more of Linus and his different masks he wears and his Wrath. The combination is interesting and Linus plays more of a role in this installment. He gets Grier out of the house, shows her a different life, and helps her grow. With what Grier went through she never got to have the life she dreamed and now she learns that she will never be the same Grier and it’s time to let go of many things and move forward.

 

So much happens in How to Break an Undead Heart. We learning more about Grier, get to meet new creatures, and have our heartbroken. Edwards ripped out my heart at the end. I’m not sure if I’m glad she did it, but I see it needed to be done. Grier needed to let go of so many things. No one likes to let their first love go, but it’s something that happens in life.

 

I’ll leave you with this. My heart broke for Grier and Woolly, the house, so have tissues ready. I cried the last 15% of this book, but I couldn’t stop; because it’s such an important and impactful moment for everyone involved.

 

Rated: 5 Stars

Life was simpler for Grier when she was flat broke and a social pariah. Now she's carrying the baggage that goes along with the title of Dame Woolworth, and shouldering that weight is giving her a serious crick in the neck. Her work as a Haint is the one thing that makes her feel normal, but even that's more paranormal than usual.

 

Spirits are vanishing from well-known hot spots on the ghost tour circuit, and vampires are turning up as shriveled husks. When Grier stumbles across the menace preying on Savannah's supernatural community, what she uncovers is bigger than a few flickering lampposts gone dark. It's a deadly threat unleashed by one of their own, and the cost of saving her city might be her life.

How to Claim an Undead Soul is book two in the Beginner’s Guide to Necromancy by Hailey Edwards.

 

This series is one you do need to read in order. Each book builds on the previous one.

 

Grier has been through a lot in her life and theirs still more hardships, trills, and heartache in store for her.

 

I had to remember a few details about what happened in book one. It took me a moment to get back into the swing and the story, but once I did I enjoyed How to Claim an Undead Soul. We get moment in the story and theirs a mystery to solve in regards to ghosts disappearing and no one knows why. The author gives us more developments; from Grier, from her love interests, from her powers, and more. I enjoyed the twist in the plot and had a delightful time with the story.

 

As for Grier’s relationships. I’m not a fan of adding in a new man to via for her attentions, but we see a competitor possibly rising up. Grier has the hots for Boaz and I’d like to see the underdog get the girl, but that love angle is still undecided even though Boaz is finally waking up and realizing Grier is what he wants. Then we have Linus who is their to help Grier learn about her powers, but he’s also their for other seasons. Not everything is clear. One thing I did get is that Linus hides who he truly is and I can’t see him every truly opening and being what Grier needs, at least at this stage.

 

How to Claim an Undead Soul was a satisfying read.
