Publisher's Summary

Never promise a life that isn’t yours to give.

New York City is decked out for the holidays, and Special Agent Patrick Collins is looking forward to a reunion with his old team when he gets assigned a new case. A human child is missing, and the changeling left in her place causes a prominent witch family to demand justice from the fae.

Meanwhile, continued harassment from the New York City god pack forces Jonothon de Vere to formally establish his own with Patrick. Doing so will mean a civil war within the werecreature community - a war they risk losing from the start without alliances. Making bargains with the fae is never wise, but Patrick and Jono have nothing to lose when a fae lord comes asking for their help.

The Summer Lady has been kidnapped from the Seelie Court, and if they can find her, Patrick and Jono will cement an alliance with the fae. But the clues to her disappearance are found in Tír na nÓg, and the Otherworld has never been kind to mortals.

Venturing past the veil, Patrick and Jono risk losing territory, time, and their very lives while searching for answers. Because the Queen of Air and Darkness knows they are coming - and the ruler of the Unseelie Court has an offer for them they can’t possibly refuse.

A Crown of Iron & Silver is a 107k word m/m urban fantasy with a gay romantic subplot and a HFN ending. It is a direct sequel to All Souls Near & Nigh. Reading the prior books in the series would be helpful in enjoying this one.

A good story

Okay, there was a lot here that I liked but, TBH, the story was quite repetitive and overlong at times. If I had been reading it, there had been some skimming. And yes, there was a lot of action, and that's part of the problem. Too much action, but not really a lot happening.

Add to that that there is a LOT of new characters and gods. Too many, to my taste. I felt as if I had to have a doctorate in Mythology to follow them.

And, personally I’m SO done with Ethan. I’m hoping in the next books there will be another bad guy :/

The constant recaps from previous books didn't help, either. This is a common mistake I keep seeing in series. And I really wish authors would stop doing that. You don't begin a series by book three, do you?

On the positive side, I really liked how the characters keep growing, Particularly Jono, who is becoming a great alpha. I also liked how Patrick was aware of becoming a better (and happier) person because of Jono.

All in all, an entertaining read.

Now, Gary Furlong... Gary Furlong I loved. He's such a fantastic narrator! A truly marvel ♥

I Loved Every Paranormal Moment! 💖🐺💖

Celtic Irish/ Welsh Pantheon

I absolutely fell in love with the first book in the Spellbound Series because it featured my favorite pantheon, The Greek.

Book #2 kept me in its thrall with the mystery surrounding Patrick's soul debt to Persephone and now dealing with a new case involving Santa Muerta. Encased in all of this are the problems still going on with the NYC Godpack, Jono, a pending vampire war over territory, and Patrick's never ending "daddy issues." Oh, and there may or may not be a fire-breathing fledgling who needs a family.

Book #3!!! Holy Celtic/ Irish/ Welsh Deities, Batman! Do not blink or you baby may be swapped for a changeling by the fae. This triggering an avalanche of paranormal assertiveness, creepy creatures, rival deities, secrets, half-truths, riddles, and trickery, like you could NEVER have imagined!

There is so much going on in this book, I read it, AND listened to the 🎧Audible version. I was captivated by the genius that is Hailey Turner. She goes above and beyond to stay as true to the history, and legends of these Pantheons, and it is evident in the countless details that weave this story on your soul like an ancient tapestry. The colors, sounds/ cadence/ dialog, character facets, and subplots all work together in a beautiful, majestic, and often dark way so your only option is to fall in love with the story.

I cannot express enough what this series has meant to me so far, but Fenrir be praised I am loving every paranormal moment! This family reunion of Gods, Goddesses, and Monsters makes this old Crone's heart very happy!

You are a true wizard, worthy of your craft, Hailey Turner! Goddess Bless!

As for the Audible version, Gary Furlong does an amazing job with accents, pronunciation of the names and of the phrases used. He has made Jono so stinkin' hot in my mind's eye, it's a wonder my skull candy buds haven't incinerated.

***sigh... So much more I could say, but I will close with this- paranormal goodness, sMMexy times, action, mystery, ongoing character arcs, a thrill ride you will take more than once! Change your name to Nike (name the pantheon - make me proud) and, "JUST DO IT!"

Amazing and ready for more

If you enjoy urban fantasy paranormal books you don't want to miss this series. This is book 3 and the others in the series need to be enjoyed first before embarking on this journey. This is an amazing story as we continue on this journey with Patrick and Jono. What starts off as a kidnapping turns out to be so much more. I love the world building in this book and amazing characters. This book is full of action from beginning to end. And Wade, you gotta love Wade and his continuous appetite, not to mention he's a dragon. I highly recommend this book and series and I look forward to what comes next.
Narrator Gary Furlong does an absolutely fantastic job in bringing the characters to life. He drew me into this world, held my attention, didn't go until the very end, and left me wanting more.

Enjoyable urban fantasy

This was an interesting take on urban fantasy. The magic system is unique with the connection to souls and gods. The characters are likable. The interplay of various styles of magic from fae to shifters to ancient gods was interesting. The plot carried through from prior books in the series and should definitely be read in order. The narrator brought the action to life. All in all, I enjoyed it.

Enjoyable audio

This series has been pretty enjoyable so far. This book was a bit repetitive and there are about a million characters which makes it a bit confusing if your not paying attention. What I do love is the mythology aspect and the growing relationship between Patrick and Jono.
Narration was ok. Gary is hit or miss for me sometimes. The narration was pleasant if not one note in some places.

Engaging adventure

Wow great story. This is book three in the series. The Summer Lady has been taken and if they find her they could cement an alliance with the fae. Patrick and Jono risk losing there territory, time, and their very lives, because the Darkness knows they are coming. If you like magic adventure and none stop action then this is a great listen. The narrator is amazing.

Keeps getting better

I don’t know how she does it, but these books just keep getting better. There was so much that happened in this one. We go from New York to the Fae realm to Ireland. We have the mystery of a baby from a influential witch family is discovered to be missing, and a changeling is left in her place. Patrick and Jono try to save the innocent child who is being hunted by both Seelie and Unseelie court's Wild Hunts & figure out who she is. We also have a missing Fae princess and a missing artifact. There are what is perceived as betrayals and half truths that have a lot of hurt feelings and possibly not being able to trust those that have had trust and loyalties. So very much went on in this one and I don't want to give anything away so you will have to pick it up & read it. I love that Jono is one step closer to taking on Estelle and Youssef and finally bringing an end to their terror.

This series just keeps getting better.

I love this complex world with its gods immortals, and preternatural creatures. Here, Hailey draws from the Celtic to complicate Patrick Collins life and we continue to see growth in our main characters as they battle new foes, and are confronted by perceived betrayals.
Buckle up for another great installment and, as Wade would put it, have plenty of snacks.

AMAZING!

I absolutely loved this third book/audiobook in the Soulbound series. It is AMAZING and I would give it TEN stars if I could. The characters are wonderfully complex and the plot is intricate with plenty of twists and surprises to keep the reader/listener enthralled. The story is full of action and adventure, secrets and half-truths, subterfuge and double-crosses, hurt and betrayal. There is also plenty of love, friendship, and devotion, and some very steamy intimate scenes between Patrick and Jono. I loved it and I can't wait for the next book. (Please write fast.^^) Although this story can be enjoyed by itself (and is the best one so far), you won't understand everything going on if you haven't read or listened to the first two books.

The narration by Gary Furlong is beyond words. His delivery really brings the characters and story to life. I don't think I would ever enjoy the story as much by reading it myself, as I would stumble over (or skip) the names that he seems to pronounce with grace and ease.

I received a review copy of this audiobook through LesCourt Author Services and am voluntarily leaving this honest review.

Magnificent!

I am in awe of Hailey Turner and her imagination, she has yet again surpassed herself with the third in Soulbound series, A Crown of Iron & Silver.
This time Jono and Patrick take on the Fae after a changling is substituted for a another child. The Fae are not the cute fairies 🧚‍♀️ you imagine them to be but monstrous, sly paranormal creatures.
Just like the previous two books this was complex and fast paced, with exceptional world building and character development.
Gary Furlong is amazing with his narration, he really excels at making each character his own and you can easily differentiate between each and every one.
I’m now eagerly looking forward to the next in the saga.
