Hadley is losing time, and her shadow refuses to shed light on the gaps in her memory. How can she protect her city if she can’t remember where she goes or what she does when she ought to be asleep? Her grim history appears to be stuck on repeat, and the only way forward might be a scythe through her back.
Pack of Lies by Hailey Edwards is the second novel in the Potentate of Atlanta series. This is a spin-off of the Beginner’s Guide to Necromancy featuring an unlikely heroine. Relationship developments and witchborn fae problems kept me flipping the pages.
I gotta tell you…. I am really starting to like Hadley.
I adore the back and forth between Midas and Hadley. Both have secrets, and we learned a little more about some of Midas’s issues and how they tie into some case threads. Hadley has been losing time and waking up behind a dumpster. I enjoy Ambrose. Sure, he is evil…. but he likes chocolate and cracks me up. Sorry. Not sorry.
Witchborn fae, slimy cockroaches and missing members… eek gads. Things got pretty intense. Hadley called on Linus for answers and while I get it, I’d like to see her gain more confidence. I know it’s because she doesn’t want to repeat past mistakes, but Linus’s faith in her should be a strong indicator that she’s got this.
One of my favorite things about this series the interaction between the characters, from pack to team members to the relationship developing between Midas and Hadley. I laughed, swooned, and became caught up in their world.
While it isn’t necessary to have read the previous series, I recommend that you read this series in the order of its release. I am anxious for the next installment. Fans of urban fantasy, shifters, necromancers and paranormal suspense will find themselves right at home.
