Book Review: Death Knell (The Foundling Series Book 3) by Hailey Edwards

Death Knell (The Foundling Series Book 3)
by Hailey Edwards
December 4th, 2018
320 pages

Book Three in the bestselling fantasy series The Foundling, perfect for fans of Shannon Mayer, Jenn Stark and the Sookie Stackhouse novels

War burned her. Famine nearly killed her. Now Death is at her heels.

After her two worlds clashed apocalyptically, Luce Boudreau needed some time out. But Destiny had other ideas. When bodies begin washing ashore down the Mississippi River, Luce discovers they are part of a gruesome, lethal message. Her final sister, Death, is trying to break through.

Every sign is clear: the end is coming, but earth will be destroyed - quite literally - over Luce's dead body, even if that means she'll be battling her own nature. And her coterie will stand with her, though Cole keeps standing one step too goddamn far away. Her mysterious new partner, Adam Wu, on the other hand, seems determined to keep her close at all times. And the more Luce learns about the new world she's part of, the deeper the secrets go. Who - if anyone - can she really trust?

As the final pieces of an ancient war come together, Luce's chance to fight back comes sooner than she expected. Death can come at her . . . she's eager to return the favour.

Famine is locked up, Sariah is under Luce’s coterie control and bodies are washing up on shore down the Mississippi River with what appears to be a message for Luce. Wondering if Death has already broken through, what they can do to stop War and in turn stop the earth from being destroyed, Luce is not sure who she can trust in the coming battles.

This series by Edwards is original and unique unlike anything I have read for a long time. She is a master at creating a universe in which to submerge yourself in and not feel like it’s something you’ve already read. Luce is a strong character whose goal is to protect not only the people she loves but all of humanity which is something that is needed today. Wu is the mystery card, just when you think you have him all figured out, BAM he does something that is a total surprise. Cole is the protector you’ve always dreamed over including the dreams that are hot and steamy.

About the Author:
Hailey Edwards writes about questionable applications of otherwise perfectly good magic, the transformative power of love, the family you choose for yourself, and blowing stuff up. Not necessarily all at once. That could get messy. She lives in Alabama with her husband, their daughter, and a herd of dachshunds.
