Hello my lovelies. Today, I’m sharing my thoughts about How To Claim An Undead Soul by Hailey Edwards. Book 2 in her bestselling urban fantasy series, The Beginner’s Guide To Necromancy.
I want to build up Flora’s Musings to be THE place to go to for paranormal romance and urban fantasy fans to find their next reads. However, I’ve decided that mini reviews are the way forward me and my blog. 😉 Consequently, you’ll only find full detailed reviews for the books I receive from authors, publishers and PR organiser (ARCs).
So with that in mind, on to my thoughts about…

Title: How To Claim an Undead Soul by Hailey Edwards
Published by Self-Published Genres: New Adult (NA), Urban Fantasy
No. of Pages: 286
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.

So, what did I thing?
I’ve only read the previous book in this series, so still class Hailey Edwards as a new-to-me author. However, I‘m 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 and the world created for this series is completely engaging. 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. However, 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.
Keep reading to find out more about Hailey and her amazing series.
