What did I think about it?
A Fascinating Story of Loyalty, Duty, and Assassination.
I’m a huge fan of Hailey’s Beginners’ Guide To Necromancy series. It has firmly cemented Hailey Edwards as one of my favourite authors. I love her writing style and find her stories easy to listen to. Her plots keep me listening as they’re full of interesting threads and plenty of action. The world that she’s created 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.
Sofia Willingham is a new-to-me narrator.
I enjoyed Sofia’s performance. The pace at which she read the story felt just right, and the emotion she puts into the narrative adds further depth. Sofia is able to adjust her voice slightly when reading the dialogue, it made it easy to distinguish male from female characters.
Although Adelade Whittaker is only in her early 20s, the weight of duty on her young shoulders, makes her feel older.
I already liked Addie from meeting her in the Beginners’ Guide to Necromancy series. But I’m so glad we got to know her better. Addie has all the personality traits that I love in a female protagonist; she’s resilient, courageous, puts others first, and has a great dry sense of humour. While we’re talking about fabulous female characters, I have to say how much I love Addie’s vampire bestie, Cass. Her inappropriate sexual behaviour and outrageous humour were hilarious. Every scene Cassandra was in was golden and she quickly became one of my favourite characters.
Boaz Pritchard was not my favourite person from the Beginners’ Guide to Necromancy.
However, I’m glad that Hailey wrote this story – Boaz needed redeeming! Boaz is intelligent and an accomplished warrior. However, he’s also a long-term lady’s man with all the unappealing traits that come with being a manwhore. Thankfully, in this book, we learn that there’s more to him than that. I like the man that Boaz becomes around Addie.
The Redemption of Boaz Pritchard is an unconvential love story.
I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook. I loved the new characters we met and learning more about those I already knew. My fingers are crossed that Hailey intends to write more stories starring Addie, Boaz, and Cass.
And now as promised, here’s Hailey’s bio and social media links.
And as I listened to the audio, here’s Sofia’s bio and links too.
