Hello my lovelies. Today, I’m sharing my thoughts about How To Save An Undead Life by Hailey Edwards. The first book that kicks of her 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 Save An Undead Life by Hailey Edwards
Published by Self-Published Genres: New Adult (NA), Urban Fantasy
No. of Pages: 240
Grier Woolworth spends her nights weaving spooky tales of lost souls and tragedies for tourists on the streets of downtown Savannah. Hoop skirt and parasol aside, it’s not a bad gig. The pay is crap, but the tips keep the lights on in her personal haunted mansion and her pantry stocked with ramen.
Life is about as normal as it gets for an ex-necromancer hiding among humans. Until the society that excommunicated Grier offers her a second chance at being more than ordinary. Too bad no one warned her the trouble with being extraordinary is it can get you killed.
Warning: This book contains one ex-con/ex-heiress with a pet zombie parakeet who lives next door to her ex-army/ex-crush. Brace yourself, we’re talking more exes than a pirate treasure map here.

So, what did I think about How to Save an Undead Life?
A Fantastic Start To This Intriguing Series
Hailey Edwards is a new-to-me author and I am so pleased to have found her. I found this book very easy to read and loved her writing style; the plot kept me gripped, the world was fascinating and the characters were multifaceted creations that felt totally believable even though many were not even human.
While I’m talking about 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. Grier Woolworth ticked every box and more.
As this is the first book in a completed 6 book series, we are left with more unanswered questions than you can swing a bat at. However, nothing is life-or-death-peril-cliffhanger-esque so that’s a good thing. I will be popping over to my Kindle Unlimited account and downloading the next book as soon as I finish typing this review.
Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read my mini-review. Keep reading to find out more about this series and the author herself
