Publisher's Summary

Grier Woolworth spends her nights weaving spooky tales of lost souls and tragedies for tourists on the streets of downtown Savannah. Hoop skirt and parasol aside, it's not a bad gig. The pay is crap, but the tips keep the lights on in her personal haunted mansion and her pantry stocked with ramen.  

Life is about as normal as it gets for an ex-necromancer hiding among humans - until the society that excommunicated Grier offers her a second chance at being more than ordinary. Too bad no one warned her the trouble with being extraordinary is it can get you killed.  

Contains mature themes.

Waiting

Didn’t like that we are left with nothing at then end. Made me feel cheated. Of course I had to buy the next book to see if it is worth it. Everything is a big secret and there aren’t any foreshadowing of who and what is doing anything. Hope I am not disappointed in the second book.

Good story, textbook reading narrator

The story was very good, and exciting, if a little frustrating with the main character's naivete sometimes. The relationship between Grier and Boaz was seductive and fun.

The narrator, however, sounded like she was reading from a textbook most of the time. The way she finished sentences, enunciated the wrong word in sentences, was a little annoying. Though she did make the different characters sound good and different.

Unique, hillarious, great start to the series!

I loved this book. It was a very unique story line, and I love the characters and world-building. It was good enough that I went back and started picking up all of the author's other books.

fun, but not engaging

the story is fun, but not engaging enough to fall in love with any of the characters. depending on how everyone else in my book club liked it, we wont finish the series.

Good story, narration just ok

Enjoyed the world building and first book in the series. I switched to reading while listening at chapter 2 so I could keep track. I mostly read more the half the book. Listened to the last two chapters. Narrator was fine but for some reason I tuned out when listening early in the book. I enjoyed the book much more switching between.

Full of twists!

This is my first book by Hailey Edwards and I truly enjoyed the story. The best thing about he story is, it’s different from others. The “haunted house”, the lead female and the lead male are fun, yet a little bit of a mystery.

I love Greer, she’s a down to earth girl who is trying to stay afloat in a word that wants to keep her down.

She spent 5 years in a supernatural prison for a crime she didn’t commit, and now has been pardoned.

Her best friend, her best guy (even if she hasn’t figured out he’s her best guy) and the house, Wooly, all do their best to keep her on the straight and narrow. And yes, I said the House helps. The house is alive in its own haunted way and it’s awesome.

When Danger strikes and Greer is in grave danger, all bets are off. They’ll do whatever they need to, to save her.

Great listen!

I really enjoyed this story. Initially, I was drawn in by the fabulous covers, but I wasn't let down by the story. I loved the characters, especially the house, and the narrator did well too.

Another addictive series by Hailey Edwards

Ms. Edwards puts her own spin on how vampires are made in this tantalizing series set in Savannah, Georgia. Grier Woolworth lives in a haunted house, but where else would a necromancer live? With all the history of Savannah, it will be fun to see how much Hailey can incorporate.

It’s a great beginning to the series and I can’t wait for the next one. It’s refreshing to hear a narrator read a series set in the South and not lay on a thick fake accent. I thought she did an excellent job.
