Amazing conclusion

I love this series so much! I adore the characters and the world. I’m beyond sad to see the end of a series I love but it was such an amazing ending. There was action, heart breaking moments, g-ds to deal with, and of course Jono and Patrick. I love the interactions between Jono and Patrick so much. I couldn’t stop listening I needed to know how things would end for all the characters I loved and the ending made me really happy. I love this author so much and the narrator does an amazing job as always. Definitely going to be a series I relisten to!

Great story. Great narration.

Since this is the last book of the series, this is a bit of a review for the whole series.

The narration was amazing. I liked reading the first book of the series, but the narration added an extra bit of flavor to the story. I now search for books narrated by Gary Furlong.

Hailey Turner did an amazing job of keeping track of and managing a large cast of characters and a complex story. Epic fantasy series are often derailed by too many superfluous details and out of character moments. Turner did not fall into that trap. This series was well thought out.

I enjoyed getting to know Jono, Patrick, Sage, and everyone else. The characters care so well built that they feel like friends and neighbors. I would have liked a few more personal insights into their thought process, but that might have derailed the flow of the story considering how large the cast was.

Overall, the rhythm of the storytelling was good which allowed for an excellent narration. The use of never in awkward places bothered me sometimes. This might be a quirk in regional dialects, but I kept envisioning a fight scene where Jono never let go of Patrick.

Emotions were evoked in this series and especially this book. I did shed a few tears in this story. Patrick's self-sacrificing nature was challenging to deal with emotionally. Also, anyone who has been responsible for the care or protection of a sibling will understand why Patrick had such a difficult time with his mission to pay his soul debt.

I will definitely listen to this entire series again. The end was satisfying. In the tradition of myths, Greek and otherwise, Patrick's story was told, but that doesn't mean the story won't evolve with time....

I tend to hold epic fantasy stories to high standards. This series showed me that Hailey Turner has a talent for constructing an engaging, epic story in a timely fashion. I look forward to the next series.

An epic conclusion to an epic journey

Story: 4.5⭐️
Audio: 4.5⭐️


“A Veiled and Hallowed Eve” begins with its fingers wrapped around your neck and pretty much only lets up long enough for a small breath to brace for the next hit. While the first few hours are relatively calm, there are enough emotional hits to keep you aware of the deep, emotional core and cost of the war Patrick has been fighting in one way or another for two decades.

The culmination of Ethan’s godly ambitions means that his machinations and set up for his final push to godhood are well-calculated, brutal and keep Patrick and Jono on their feet for almost the entire ~13hr ride. The Norns may have been sleeping on the job and keeping Merrick and Patrick in the dark, but apparently whatever fates Ethan has access to can see plenty since the last book and this one have him ambushing Patrick, Jono and their pack with agonizing success.

I don’t know if: the Norns only focus on Patrick; if Ethan has so many different fates from different mythologies someone always sees something; Ethan’s fates have learned it’s a tactical advantage to focus on the pack instead of Patrick; and/or the Norns have seen that allowing the ambushes and letting Patrick walk in blind (like in the Hamptons) is the best chance of success, but Ethan and crew always run the chest board. However, I’m happy to say I finally got to agree with Patrick about a plan Jono, Gerrard and everyone else thinks is terrible—all his options really are terrible and his choice has actual tactical reasoning to go along with the emotion.

“Eve” is a very battle-heavy story as more than half of it is fighting, but Turner has a gift for crafting and pulling off these grand scale yet realistic war set pieces that are bursting with characters, actions and tension without them feeling overwhelming in a bad way. Personally, I feel like a bit could have been trimmed here or there but none of it felt unnecessary. I was also pleasantly surprised by how easy Turner is on the reader; this last book could have been much more emotionally draining (looking at you Metahuman Files) but for all the heart-wrenching emotions and gut-punches, there are so many others sprinkled within the chaos and blood-soaked battlefields that are hopeful and cathartic.

These emotional moments (great and small) are handled with so much nuanced mastery by Gary Furlong that even the most stone-hearted listener would be hard-pressed to not be moved. On the battlefield or off, from gut-wrenching yells to quietly choked breaths, Furlong makes sure Turner’s already impactful words leave a crater in your heart.

Patrick may have never wanted to be the hero in this bloody myth of godly creation and destruction, but he carries his mantle of votive with so much heart, dark human, hidden vulnerability and humanity I can’t imagine walking this journey with any other character or hearing his story told in any other narrator’s voice.

HOLLY MOLLEY BATMAN

non stop action, wrenching loss, gods galore, and the all encompassing happy ever after ending makes the bitter sweet knowledge that this is the last book for Patrick, Jono, and their pack just a little bit easier to except. now gotta listen to Hailey's other books. Can't wait for the new hinted new series!!

Amazing finale to an amazing series

This is an action packed finale, seventh book, to this wonderful series. It does start off a bit slow, and I started and stopped several times. However, I kept at it, and I am so glad I did!

Gods and demons, zombies and hunters, all conspire to take away everything from our heroes. However, the pledged help and alliances that have been forged are kept, and some unexpected help even shows up along the way.

This book was an emotional rollercoaster for me, a long time devotee to the series. But, in the end, everything is as it should be, and Patrick and Jono (and their God pack) finally get the peace and happiness they have sacrificed so much for. It's a fantastic happily ever after, and I can't wait until I have time to relistent to the series again soon.

The one thing that brought down my rating was the narration by Gary Furlong, and it kills me to say that. He has done a fantastic job with the rest of the series, but something is off with this book. The characters voices are different throughout most of the book, which took me out of the story for a time. Don't get me wrong, the narration is still amazing; it just doesn't seem to match up with the other books. If this had been a standalone, it would be a 5 ⭐ narrative all the way. But the difference between this book and the others was disappointing for me.

Final Chapter in an epic saga

I have followed along this series with awe, wonder, a touch of frustration, and true enjoyment. Just to get the frustration out of the way – I’m not up on mythology, gods, supernatural beings, or anything else like that. I have learned a ton from these books, but it kind of gets confusing. Unless it's Hermes. I can never forget Hermes.

These books are epics. They take the overarching good versus evil, and break it down granularly into Patrick and Jono versus all the ill that exists in the world. That’s quite a task. And the couple have made friends along the way, so they’re not alone. They’ve also made a few enemies as well, and many of those join in the pitch battle for the souls of the good. Along the way, Patrick loses someone dear to him and that nearly broke me. I understood why this character had to die, but it still hurt.

In the end, though, Patrick has to fight Ethan for dominion and that means dealing with his twin sister. Patrick went for twenty years thinking Hannah was dead. Once he discovers the horrors she’s endured during that time, his guilt intensifies. Only he can end her suffering. I’d somehow hoped Hannah would get a happy ending, but after twenty years of horrific abuse, how is happiness even possible? To pay off his soul debt, Patrick has to return Macaria to her parents. That’s quite an ask. Oh, and he has to do it alone.

Jono is not happy being left behind after the battle. He settles back into life with Sage, his dyer, and Wade, the dragon shifter who is still eating them out of house and home. In case you couldn’t tell, Wade is the comic relief. Patrick traveled across the veil during Samhain. Time is different in the other world, so the wait is doubly painful for Jono. But Patrick is determined to make it back to his mate. So what happens when Persephone offers to sever the soulbond between the mage and the werecreature? Well, you’ll have to listen to find out.

OMG, this is so much going on in this book. The overarching theme of good versus evil is viewed through numerous lenses and rarely is it straightforward. The gods have their ways of dealing with mortals, and Patrick’s job is to keep the world safe. Not a small task. But he has Jono, so it makes success a possibility.

So the series is over. I’ll be sorry to see it go. I have to give a huge shout out to Gary Furlong who has shone through the entirety of the books. His narration was amazing, and between his voice and Ms. Turner’s words, I was mesmerized. I might even go back to do a re-listen now I have a better idea of the mythology. Should have paid more attention in the ninth grade. Definitely recommend.

All Debts Must Be Repaid.

MM, Paranormal Suspense, Adventure, Romance. Seventh and final book in the series, best listened/read in series order due to long and complicated plot. Non stop action throughout the story with all kinds of Paranormals and God's making an appearance. Easy to listen to/read if you have read the others in the series and definitely a page turner, in fact I would say binge worthy. Thoroughly enjoyed listening/reading their story. I listened/read the book at the same time which I now wish I hadn't as it highlighted some narrating errors that I probably wouldn't have noticed otherwise. It would of scored five across the board if not for that. A fantastic series that has given me many happy satisfying hours.

Nail Biter

This series couldn't have had a better ending and the fact that it happens on Samhain makes it perfect for the season. Patrick, Jono, their pack and allies have to summon every bit of strength and every trick they possess to stop the carnage about to be unleashed on the world. This is one rollercoaster ride where you are never sure who's going to survive or how great the physical and emotional damage might be. Strap yourself in and don't miss this. Gary Furlong's performance here is wonderful. You feel the character's pain and uncertainty and also, the strength they gain from each other.

Amazing story and brilliant narration

This is the conclusion to this brilliant series and I'm sad to see them go even though I'm also very very happy to see Patrick and Jono finally get the life they want on their own terms. Hailey Turner brought out all the stops and nothing was off limits as she wrapped up this amazing series.
The narrator did a brilliant job at bringing this story to life. The emotions were spot on, the voices were excellent and in a book with so many people it could have been easy to get lost amongst the sea of voices but that doesn't happen. The narrator has an amazing range and I could easily tell who was who.

A Veiled & Hallowed Eve

Great ending to a great series! Everything was settled nicely, and I have no lingering, tortured questions. The narration was good - the character's voices have become the narrator's. Overall great listen.

Epic Ending of an Enchanted Expectation

Hailey and Gary have brought it all home! New York City beware of mages trying to usurp the gods! Patrick's Soul Debt has come due and it'll take a miracle to extract himself from the dire quandary he finds himself in. Gary brings Hailey's wonderful cast of characters to life one final time and I was not disappointed. After getting to know them all through the 6 previous books in the series, I had high hopes for this one and knew the journey would be tumultuous and epic. Brace yourselves for the gripping conclusion of this epic saga, it's well worth the rollercoaster ride! Highly recommended for all lovers of Paranormal MM action-adventure romance. Best enjoyed if listened to in order starting from book 1. An amazing series by a wonderful writer.

Thank you!

As a huge fan of the author and the series, I got a little sad when hearing this will be the last in the series, but it was a treat witnessing this last adventure of Patrick and Jono and how strong and unique their bond and love would become throughout their time together. I enjoyed a lot remembering all the books in the series, each one of them better than the previous one, with many stories, about Patrick and Jono and their extended family and friends, and even about the villains and how every single heartwarming moment and steamy scene were more beautiful and amazing as the series advanced. Gary Furlong was perfect as the narrator of all the books in the series and his smooth voice and great acting talent helped round up the characters and their Universe into a flawless performance. Thank you for all the amazing hours I spent reading and hearing these wonderful books! What a finale!

Epic - spoiler free review

Wow! Seven books and now it's over. I have a book hangover like no other.
This review will be vague because I won't give away anything for readers who have yet to start the series.
This (as my headline states) was epic. A roller coaster of emotion and action that didn't stop from start to finish.
Don't worry, Patrick and Jono get their HEA, eventually. Have faith.

And the narrator, well he was excellent.

Gosh, it's over. What will I do? A listen with no gaps sounds like an excellent plan. When I've recovered a tad.

Epic conclusion to the series

This was a series that had me hooked from the very start and it was bittersweet to get to the conclusion of it - because I really wanted to stay with the characters for longer. The whole series has been building and building, keeping us on tenterhooks until we reached this, the epic conclusion of the series. My emotions were all over the place! No spoilers here, because if you’ve made it to the end of the series I know you don’t want them, you just want to know does it live up to the rest of the series. And the answer is yes! Yes! Yes! Yes!

Gary Furlong’s narration of the series is perfect. He clearly distinguishes all the characters without them sounding like caricatures. He took the amazing books written by Hailey Turner and brings them even more to life.

Such a good ending

what a great ending to the series I am so happy that I got to listen to it and also sad that it was the last book.☺️
