Hello fellow bookworms. It’s mini review time! Today, I’m sharing my thoughts about How To Live An Undead Lie by Hailey Edwards. Book 5 in her bestselling urban fantasy series, The Beginner’s Guide To Necromancy.
In case you didn’t already know, I now only write a full detailed review for the books I receive from authors, publishers and PR organiser (ARCs). Consequently, it’s mini reviews for me and my blog. 😉

Published by Self-Published on 11 December, 2018
Genres: New Adult (NA), Paranormal Romance (PNR), Urban Fantasy
No. of Pages: 322
When a fledgling vampire arrives at Woolworth House searching for his maker, Grier is forced to relive her time in Atramentous. Most of those years are as dark and empty in her memory as she was in her cell. She can't remember her progeny, or the night she resuscitated him, but she can protect him from the Society. As long as she's willing to barter with her grandfather to do it.
But Lacroix has plans of his own. He envisions the city--her city--under his rule, and Grier under his thumb. Now all he needs is the right leverage to force her cooperation, and he has just the person in mind. Grier is ready to trade her freedom until a grim truth is revealed that splits her heart in two. Yet another person she loves has betrayed her, and Grier is left agonizing over how much of their relationship is real and how much was a lie.

So what did I think about How To Live an Undead Lie?
The beginner’s Guide to Necromancy series has become a firm favourite and cemented Hailey Edwards as a one-click author. I love her writing style and find it easy to read. Her storylines keep me hooked and I find the world that she’s created for this series fascinating. I love that her characters have multifaceted personalities which makes them feel believable – even though most are not even human. Ms Edwards got me feeling emotional about a house for crying out loud! A house, people!! 😉
Those of you who have read a review by me before, will know that I crave certain personality traits. Heroines have to be intelligent, resilient, resourceful and have plenty of gumption. Greir has these traits plus the potential to grow and has a sense of humour that makes me chuckle. Although Grier Woolworth is only 21, I love how she’s continuing to evolve and grow as this series progresses.
This is the fifth book in a completed 7 book series. Although some mysteries have been solved in this story, we are still left with unresolved threads. But, rest assured dear reader, there is NO life-or-death perilous cliffhanger at the end of this book.
I‘m emotionally invested in Grier and can’t wait to find out what happens next. I’ll be borrowing the next book using my Kindle Unlimited subscription before you can say, “Necromancers do it in sigils“. Watch this space for my next review. 😉
Keep reading to find out more about this wonderful series and its author.
