Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book grabbed me from the first chapter and I couldn't put it down!" (Goodreads)

"Lots of unexpected twists and turns. I love the complex world which has been built outside of normal human awareness. There is a serious mystery at the heart of this and I can't wait to see how it unfolds. I also think the potential love interest is very intriguing." (E_bookpushers)

"Well done urban fantasy - the heroine is a necromancer and there is a nice take on vampires. She lives in a haunted house - and the house itself kind of talks to her. Well-paced with a great heroine. The world building is well done - twists and turns. I laughed, but there are also darker moments. I really enjoyed this one. First time I've read this author. Ready for book two." (Mandi @ Smexy Books)

"I absolutely loved this book. I have read many books from Hailey Edwards and this book did not disappoint. We get taken into a story that is fantastically written about a necromancer and the world she lives in. I cannot wait for the next book."

"This series is going on my "must read" list."

"I love anything Edwards writes, and this new series presents another interesting character mixed with great worldbuilding."
"...it has all the requisite parts for me; a strong female protagonist, a time-tested "family" support system, banter-lovely lovely banter, plenty of rocks needing to be turned over, mysterious others and unknown agendas... I'm shamelessly carrying around my iPad and inventing reasons to take breaks between every task."
