The Beginner's Guide to Necromancy, Book 6

Savannah has fallen to the vampires, and it’s up to Grier to take out their leader, Gaspard Lacroix, and restore peace. Lacroix might be more powerful and immune to her magic, but she’s got a plan. Too bad it’s got holes big enough for a new threat to waltz through while the city is on her knees.

Now Grier must risk her very soul if she hopes to slay her enemies and prevent her world from going up in flames. But salvation comes at a steep price, and she’s not the only one who will pay. The cost just might break her, and the man who owns her heart.

Savannah is at the mercy of Lacroix, an extremely powerful vampire and also her grandfather. Grier must find a way to defeat him and save her beloved city but to defeat him it may take more than she has to sacrifice.

This series is one of my absolute favorites of all time. I had a hard time reading this book because I knew it was the last one in the series. All the questions that need answering will finally come to light and there are more than a few surprises in that department. Edwards is a brilliant writer, who paints such a vivid image of her characters and stories that it’s hard to put down her books. The love and relationship that has developed between Grier and Linus is one to envy and her friendship with Lethe has a depth all its own.

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.


  1. I hard trouble read this one too because it's the final installment in a series I've loved. Thank's for sharing!

  2. I loved this, because Grier and Linus. And hated it because, last Grier and Linus.

  3. I have just started this series, Sharon so I quickly scrolled down without reading your review ;-)
