Review: How to Save an Undead Life by Hailey Edwards

Review: How to Save an Undead Life by Hailey Edwards How to Save an Undead Life Author: Hailey Edwards Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Hailey Edwards has a new series out!!! **muppet flail happy dance** I’ve been chomping at the bit to get my grubby little hands on How to Save an Undead Life since Ms. Edwards announced the project and started dropping hints. This is the first of three (currently) planned titles in the Beginner’s Guide to Necromancy series, and I’m already all grabby hands for book two. We’ve got some awesome vampire lore here, and the world is well-developed so it’s easy to see the hierarchy. First, supporting characters. Boaz: this guy is Grier’s...

Review: Over the Moon by Hailey Edwards

Review: Over the Moon by Hailey Edwards Over the Moon Author: Hailey Edwards Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: I think Over the Moon is an excellent end to the Lorimar Pack books in the Black Dog universe. Don’t get me wrong—I’m definitely up for more books in the universe—as matter of fact, I think Ms. Edwards sets us up well for at least a novella for Theo—but Dell’s story arc feels complete in a satisfying way. That makes sense, right? You guys know what I’m talking about. I’ve been very vocal about adoring the Black Dog universe since it started. The world-building is killer, and any time I have questions, I can guarantee...

Review: Dog Eat Dog World: Limited Edition Bundle by Hailey Edwards

Review: Dog Eat Dog World: Limited Edition Bundle by Hailey Edwards Dog Eat Dog World: Limited Edition Bundle Author: Hailey Edwards Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: It’s no secret how much I adore the Black Dog Universe. I gush over them every chance I get. If you haven’t jumped on the bandwagon, Hailey Edwards has released a LIMITED EDITION bundle with every previously released story (except Over the Moon, Gemini #6, the upcoming title due out this summer), including the shorts she’s had in other collections. And I’VE READ THEM ALL…now you can, too! Below are some quickie comments for the short stories in the collection I hadn’t reviewed and a complete reading order—with linked reviews—appears below...

Review: Wolf at the Door by Hailey Edwards

Review: Wolf at the Door by Hailey Edwards Wolf at the Door Author: Hailey Edwards Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: Yes. Every time I read one of the Black Dog books, I completely rave. This review won’t be any different. So, if you haven’t jumped on the bandwagon yet, pick up Dog with a Bone and get reading. Hailey Edwards has a significant backlist with these titles that’ll keep you busy for a minute ☺ So. Dell & Isaac. Gods, I love them together so hard. We were introduced to them in the Gemini titles, but getting to focus on them as a main couple in the Lorimar Pack spin-off is absolutely wonderful. Their...

Review: Promise the Moon by Hailey Edwards

Review: Promise the Moon by Hailey Edwards Promise the Moon Author: Hailey Edwards Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: **blinks** What did I just read?!? (totally in a good way). You all know I’m a HUGE fan of the Black Dog series and it’s spin-offs. Promise the Moon is the first title in the Lorimar Pack books. The second title, Wolf at the Door is set to release January 25, 2017. **grabby hands** There’s a lot of history in this book. I highly recommend reading all the Gemini titles before picking up Promise the Moon. Ms. Edwards does do a great job of filling in backstory, but seriously? Who would want a shot of their...

Review: Fish out of Water by Hailey Edwards

Review: Fish out of Water by Hailey Edwards Fish Out of Water Author: Hailey Edwards Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: If you haven’t been following my reviews of Hailey Edwards’ Black Dog books, GO! GET ON THAT! Fish Out of Water is a plot resolution from the spinoff Gemini series, featuring Cam. It DEFINITELY needs to be read after Hell or High Water—seriously, don’t mess with the series order, folks. I had a lot of questions about Harlow at the conclusion of the third title in the Gemini series, and Fish Out of Water clears them all up for me. It was super nice to see Harlow again. I must admit, I really adore...

Review: Hell or High Water by Hailey Edwards

Review: Hell or High Water by Hailey Edwards Hell or High Water Author: Hailey Edwards Reviewer: Vampbard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: What? You haven’t started reading Hailey Edwards’ Black Dog series? You guys…get on that. I know, every time Ms. Edwards releases a title in the series or a spin-off series, I say the same thing. I MEAN IT. In the latest release in the Gemini series, Hell or High Water, there’s all the feels, and I honestly wish I could’ve holed up somewhere and devoured the story in one sitting. If you HAVE been reading this series, there’s a lot of awww and booyah! moments. There’s more than one oh, HECK no! happening as well....

Review: Head Above Water by Hailey Edwards

Review: Head Above Water by Hailey Edwards Head Above Water Author: Hailey Edwards Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: Head Above Water is… awesome. I was really excited to get back to Cam and Graeson. Their story is compelling, wrought with sexual tension, and contains a twist in their romance I did NOT see coming!!! The over-arching series conflict with Charybdis continues to build and puzzle Cam, as well. I may have devoured this title in one sitting, had life not happened. I love the theme of ‘family’ in this title. Part of what we get to see involves Cam, Aunt Dot, and Cam’s cousin, Isaac. Blood relatives. The family dynamic is unique, and...

Review: Dead in the Water by Hailey Edwards

Review: Dead in the Water by Hailey Edwards Dead in the Water Author: Hailey Edwards Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: You. Guys. I’m not kidding here. I actually growled when one of the kidlets interrupted me while I was reading Dead in the Water. This is Ms. Edwards’ Gemini series, a spin-off of the Black Dog series. Yes. You should probably read the Black Dog series before you read this one. Otherwise, if you go back, you’ll have read spoilers. Dead in the Water takes place after Old Dog, New Tricks, the fourth title in the Black Dog series. Not gonna lie. I adore Cam and the way she handles everything. Ev.Er.Y.Thing. I am...

Review: Stone Cold Fox by Hailey Edwards

Review: Stone Cold Fox by Hailey Edwards Stone Cold Fox Author: Hailey Edwards Reviewer: VampBard Rating: A+ What I’m Talking About: Shut. The. Front. Door. I didn’t think it was possible to love one of Hailey Edwards’ characters more than I did Thierry. First, I’m totally going to gush about the whole Black Dog world. While Mai’s book, Stone Cold Fox, isn’t *technically* part of the Black Dog series, anyone who’s read about Thierry’s adventures already knows and loves Mai. Readers new to the series? Okay. This’ll whet your appetite, but be warned—it’s spoilery to the series featuring Thierry! If you haven’t partaken of the Black Dog books, I do highly recommend them. I adored this...
