Hello, fellow Urban Fantasy fans. Today, I’m sharing my thoughts about How To Survive an Undead Honeymoon by Hailey Edwards. Book 8 in her bestselling urban fantasy series, The Beginner’s Guide To Necromancy.

Last year, I decided that mini-reviews were the way forward me and my blog. 😉 Consequently, I only write full detailed reviews for the books I receive from authors, publishers and PR organiser (ARCs).

So with that in mind, today, it’s on to my mini-review.

The Epilogues: Part II

Nothing says romance like spending a long weekend at a haunted inn famed for sending its guests to the ER with scratches, bites, and fractures. Or so Linus thinks when he books a trip for Grier and himself to Oliphant House. As far as honeymoons go, the choice is nontraditional, but then, so is his bride.

Haunted history is one of Grier’s great loves, and she’s thrilled to discover Linus has given her a mystery to solve. Forget walks on moonlit beaches and sipping fruity drinks, Grier would much rather unravel the curse that’s plagued the Oliphant family for generations than pick sand from between her toes.

The resident spooks, however, aren’t happy with the newlyweds sticking their noses where they don’t belong. Between the missing persons, the dead bodies, and the secrets lurking in the basement, Linus and Grier start to wonder if they’ll survive their honeymoon.

A Perilous Honeymoon For Our Favourite Necromancers.

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 hooked with interesting 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 – even though most are not even human.

As I borrowed How To Survive An Undead Honeymoon book through my Kindle Unlimited subscription, I added the narration.

However, I ended up listening to the story rather than reading it. This is only the second 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, 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. She has all the personality traits that I crave from a female protagonist plus her sense of humour makes me chuckle. Grier is 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 second of the “epilogue novellas” that aim to tie up a few loose ends and gives Grier’s and Linus’s happy ever after. There’s NO life-or-death perilous cliffhanger at the end of this novella. However, I can’t wait to read the final epilogues novella, How To Rattle An Undead Couple.

Keep reading to find out more about Hailey and this amazing series.

About Hailey Edwards

Author - Hailey Edwards

Hailey Edwards writes about questionable applications of otherwise perfectly good magic, the transformative power of love, the family you choose for yourself, and blowing stuff up. Not necessarily all at once. That could get messy. She lives in Alabama with her husband, their daughter, and a herd of dachshunds.

Narrator Rebecca Mitchell is a performance artist and classically trained vocalist, as well as a professional host, emcee, and personality. Her natural flare for the dramatic, coupled with her love of being in the studio, brought her to the world of narrating in 2013. Her natural, mellifluous style reveals her rich alto training, love of storytelling, and ease in front of a microphone. Though a longtime New Englander, Rebecca Mitchell was born and raised in the Midwest. The myriad accents and dialects from her various homes, as well as those from her extensive travels, find their way into the characters she portrays. A collector of personality traits, idiosyncrasies, vocal styles, and personal histories, Rebecca infuses her narration with such elements, deepening the richness of her work.
