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 Claim An Undead Soul (The Beginner’s Guide To Necromancy #2) by Hailey Edwards
The Beginner’s Guide to Necromancy, Book 2
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. Grier takes it upon herself to uncover what’s preying on Savannah’s supernatural community, and what she uncovers is bigger than a few flickering lampposts gone dark. It’s a deadly threat unleashed by one of their own, and saving her city just might kill her.
I’ve only read the previous book so still class Hailey Edwards as a new-to-me author, I really enjoyed the first book in this series and am happy to say this second instalment kept me reading too. I am so pleased to have found Ms Edwards.
How To Claim an Undead Soul was very easy to read and I loved Ms Edwards writing style; the plot kept me hooked, the world created for this series is completely engaging and the characters are wonderfully multifaceted creations that feel totally believable even though many are not even human.
While I’m on the subject of 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. Goodness me, Grier Woolworth ticked every box and has a sense of humour that made me both smile and chuckle while reading.
As this is only the second book in a completed 6 book series, we are left with more unanswered questions than you can poke at stick at but nothing is life-or-death-perilous-cliffhanger-esque so that’s a good thing. (I HATE those type of cliffhangers with a passion!)
I will be popping over to my Kindle Unlimited account and downloading the next book as soon as my little fingers can type.
(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,
