Hadley Whitaker is a liar, a killer, and a chocoholic, but she’s getting better about the first two. Or maybe she’s just getting better at them.

Some days it’s hard for her to tell fact from fiction, but only one truth matters. Goddess willing, she’s going to be the next Potentate of Atlanta. Even if it means playing nice with Midas Kinase, a shifter whose mysterious past might just be grimmer than her own.

When a bloodthirsty rogue begins hunting the city’s paranormals, Hadley ropes Midas into letting her work the case. But that rope starts to feel more like a noose as they come closer to discovering not only the rogue’s identity, but each other’s darkest secrets. 

Shadow of Doubt, the first book in The Potentate of Atlanta series is a spin-off from The Beginner’s Guide to Necromancy series that starts off with Amelie, who is now Hadley Whitaker, trying to find her footing as the potential next potentate in Atlanta. She is trying to keep her new identify straight and keep her shadow, Ambrose, under control as well as secret. Her new case puts her squarely in the path of Midas Kinase, the beta of the gwyllgi pack in Atlanta, who has the power to reveal her secrets. Midas is drawn to Hadley in ways he cannot understand and is trying is hardest to avoid her at all costs. Ford has been assigned to be the pack liaison with Hadley, but he also has his eyes set on her as well.

Once again Edwards does not disappoint. I was crushed when the last series ended, but this one keeps the magic alive and lets us dive deeper into some old favorites as well as new characters. A paranormal is killing different women from different factions in the area and the mystery surrounding it is intriguing and full of surprises. This series will be another great one by Edwards.

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.
