Hello, fellow Urban Fantasy fans. Today, I’m sharing my thoughts about How To Rattle an Undead Couple by Hailey Edwards. The third and final part of The Epilogues and book 9 in her bestselling urban fantasy series, The Beginner’s Guide To Necromancy.
Last year, I joined the Audiobook Challenge 2020 and listened to this one as part of that back in December. I enjoyed the challenge so much that I’m signing up again this year. 😉
But for now, it’s on to my mini-review.

Bring on the cakes, balloons, cakes, gifts, cakes, and…well…cakes. It’s time for Grier’s baby shower!
Grier is ready to smile for the cameras, rip open the presents, and finally taste that lemon chiffon cake, but it’s just not meant to be. The Grande Dame is MIA, which turns the big event into an even bigger search party. And that delicious cake? It’s going right back in the fridge.
While Grier doesn’t have the best relationship with her mother-in-law, she’s determined her child will grow up with one living grandparent or else. Even if it means wiggling into maternity jeans, putting on actual shoes, and waddling over to Lawson Manor to investigate the potential kidnapping.
Just as the investigation turns a corner, Grier pays the price for her stress. The baby wants out ahead of schedule, and it has a unique way of making its desires known. Unique and terrifying. Now the race is on to find the Grande Dame before the baby makes his or her first appearance.
What do you get when you cross a goddess-touched necromancer with an Eidolon?
Linus and Grier are about to find out firsthand. Now they just have to survive parenthood.

What did I think about How To Rattle an Undead Couple?
I love this amazing series. It has firmly cemented Hailey Edwards as one of my favourite authors. I love her writing style and find her books easy to read. Her storylines keep me reading with great threads and plenty of action. The world that she’s created for this series is fascinating as are the different species that populate it. I love that all her characters have multilayered personalities even though most of them aren’t human – it makes them all feel real.
As I borrowed How To Rattle An Undead Couple book through my Kindle Unlimited subscription, I added the narration at the reduced cost.
However, I ended up listening to the story rather than reading it. This is only the third time I’ve heard Rebecca Mitchell and I enjoyed her performance once again. I like the pace at which she reads a story and the emotions she put into the narrative. Rebecca was able to adjust her voice slightly when reading the dialogue, to make it easier to distinguish male from female characters. However, separating Grier from Lethe or Hood from Linus, for example, wasn’t quite as easy.
Although Grier Woolworth is only in her early 20s, I love how she’s continued to grow and evolve as this series progressed.
Grier has all the personality traits that I crave from a female protagonist plus her sense of humour makes me chuckle. She’s intelligent, resilient, resourceful and has plenty of gumption. Linus has the traits that set off all my girly parts as well as warm my romantic heart. I love him too.
This is the third and final of the “epilogue novellas” that aim to tie up a few loose ends and give us Grier’s and Linus’s happy ever after.
However, Hailey hasn’t closed it down finitely. The world surrounding our Undead Couple, family and friends in Louisiana is still going on – just without us
