Hello Avid Readers,
Sometimes, when I read a book I don’t write a full review, I just write a paragraph or two to publish on Amazon and Goodreads; especially if it’s a book with thousands of reviews already. But I want to build up my blog to be THE place to go to for paranormal romance fans, so I should really post those smaller reviews on here too, right?
So with that in mind, today, I want to share my thoughts about…
How To Save An Undead Life (The Beginner’s Guide To Necromancy #1) by Hailey Edwards
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.
A Fantastic Start To This Intriguing Series
Hailey Edwards is a new-to-me author and I am so pleased to have found her. I found this book very easy to read and loved her writing style; the plot kept me gripped, the world was fascinating and the characters were multifaceted creations that felt totally believable even though many were not even human.
While I’m talking about characters, those of you who have read my reviews before will know that I crave heroines who are intelligent, resilient, resourceful and have plenty of gumption. Grier Woolworth ticked every box and more.
As this is the first book in a completed 6 book series, we are left with more unanswered questions than you can swing a bat at but nothing is life-or-death-peril-cliffhanger-esque so that’s a good thing. I will be popping over to my Kindle Unlimited account and downloading the next book as soon as I finish typing this review.
(I am part of Amazon , The Book Depository, Foyles Book Shop and Waterstones affiliate programmes, which means when you use those links to buy a copy of this book, I will get a (very) small % from the sale.)
Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read my mini review. I hope I’ve sparked your interest.
Bye for now,
