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). When I read a book that I’ve bought, like this Beginners’ Guide to Necromancy one, I write a mini review instead.

So with that in mind, today, I want to share my thoughts about…

How To Wake An Undead City (The Beginner’s Guide To Necromancy #6) by Hailey Edwards

Savannah has fallen to the vampires, and it’s up to Grier to take out their leader, Gaspard Lacroix, and restore peace. Lacroix might be more powerful and immune to her magic, but she’s got a plan. Too bad it’s got holes big enough for a new threat to waltz through while the city is on her knees.

Now Grier must risk her very soul if she hopes to slay her enemies and prevent her world from going up in flames. But salvation comes at a steep price, and she’s not the only one who will pay. The cost just might break her, and the man who owns her heart.

 A Gripping Finale To This Addictive Series

This amazing series has firmly cemented Hailey Edwards as one of my favourite authors. 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 all her characters have multifaceted personalities, making them feel real – even though most are not even human. Ms Edwards got me feeling emotional about a house for crying out loud! A house, people!! 😉

While I’m on the subject of characters … Existing followers will know that I need heroines to be intelligent, resilient, resourceful and have plenty of gumption. Although Grier Woolworth’s only in her early 20s, I love how she continued to grow and evolve as this series progressed. She has all the personality traits that I crave plus her sense of humour makes me chuckle.

This is the sixth book in a completed 7 book series. However, the final book is a novella tying up a few loose ends. All of the main mysteries have been solved and the threats neutralises in this story. This means that there’s NO life-or-death perilous cliffhanger at the end of this book. I’m emotionally invested in Grier, so can’t wait to read the extra novella – How to Kiss an Undead Bride: The Epilogues. I’ll be borrowing it using my Kindle Unlimited subscription before you can say, “Necromancers do it in sigils“. Plus I’ll read any more that Hailey wants to write in the future! 😉
