Publisher's Summary

The devil you know is never the one you should trust.

Special Agent Patrick Collins is dispatched to Chicago, chasing a lead on the Morrigan’s staff for the joint task force. Needing a cover for his presence in the Windy City, Patrick is ordered to investigate a politician running for mayor. In the lead up to Election Day, not everything is what it seems in a city where playing to win means appeasing the gods first and the electorate second.

But Chicago brings its own set of problems outside the case: a standoffish local god pack, a missing immortal, and Patrick’s twin sister. Fighting Hannah and the Dominion Sect provides Patrick with a sinister reminder that some blood ties can never be cut.

Left behind in New York City, Jonothon de Vere finds himself targeted by hunters who will go through anyone to kill him - including the packs under his protection. With a bounty on his head, Jono is forced to make a choice that Patrick would never approve of. Doing so risks breaking the trust he’s built with the man he loves, but not acting will give the rival New York City god pack leverage Jono can’t afford to give up.

When Patrick and Jono reunite in Chicago, Patrick must confront the fraying of a relationship he’s come to rely on for his own sanity. But fixing their personal problems will have to wait - because Niflheim is clawing at the shores of Lake Michigan and the dead are hungry.

A Vigil in the Mourning is a 102,000 word m/m urban fantasy with a gay romantic subplot and a HFN ending. It is a direct sequel to A Crown of Iron & Silver. Listening the first book in the series would be helpful in enjoying this one.

It just keeps getting better!

I (im)patiently waiting for this book to come out on audio. I've read the ebook version and I knew the audio version would take the action to the next level. I was not disappointed. Patrick was out of town for work this time and Wade came with him. I adore Wade more each book, but in this one, he really showed his badass side. Jono, strong and Patrick's rock, as always. I just love the two of them together. They keep getting stronger, their pack as well. Hailey did amazing with the battle scene in this book. It's so good, I felt bad for the city of Chicago!
I can't wait for more adventures of Patrick and Jono and I keep hoping that maybe in the next book, Patrick will say 'it' back to Jono. It's a thing now for me.
Gary Furlong definitely brought this book to life!

** thanks for GRR for the opportunity to listen and review **

Wade comes into his own..

For those following this series, Wade has been a wonderful oasis of comic relief. He has some choice moments in this book, plus the ongoing allure of this ongoing saga of a mortal mage, his noble werewolf lover, and the gods who continue to f#ck with their lives. Terrific performance by Gary Furlong, whose command of accents and vocal nuance brings these characters to life.

an absolutely must read/ listen to series

so before it even became available once I send it up here I pre-ordered this same with the actual book. I have to say that I used to pass up all the books. David kept popping up look for some reason I just have passing them up. until one day I decided what the heck I guess it wants me to buy it. so when I bought the normal regular book one I realized that there was an audiobook attached to it. so I decided why not just get the audio as well. I'm busy so I didn't get to physically read the actual book but I listen to the audio. and that was it, I was hooked. not just in the story. which by the way is amazing braids character-building world-building just overall a wonderful magical fantasizing extraordinary book. I what is 2 chapters in before I decided to go back on to the audible and Kindle and by the second one. and pre-order the Third. that is how amazing that book was. Not only was the book amazing but they chose the best narrator for it. after listening to this book I looked up the narrator because I fell in love with their voice because of this book. and a lot of my other purchases that I own are some this narrator. this book also was amazing as soon as I seen it for available for just a book I bought it or pre-ordered it anyway same what I noticed and I checked every day for the audible. and once became available I pre-order it. the author is an amazing talented writer and I just love this series of theirs. I just found book 5 of this series and pre-ordered the book I cannot wait the book 5 Audible. and I am sure that it will be as amazing as the last four have been. I can't wait. I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves fantasy, Magic,Fae, vampires, werewolves and so on oh and yeah can't forget one Kick-Ass SOA red-haired agent.

A Werewolf, a Mage, and Dragon walk into a bar ..

If you like werewolves, mages dragons, demons, magic , the fey , vampires, annoying norse gods dropping in from time to time , and a teen age fire dragon who is a kleptomaniac and has an endless appetite for food and snacks even though he has just eaten - bottom less stomach , then you are in the right place .

Enjoy

To the author ...... when will book 5 be available ? on audible .

Excellent and engaging and fun world-building

Queer guy here, loved this book and am loving the whole series. At some point during the pandemic I decided I needed to listen to trashy queer fantasy books, and I was so surprised to stumble onto this VERY GOOD series while I was chasing that m/m fantasy high!! Not trashy at all.

I love the protagonists, I love their relationship, I love how respect and consent are the cornerstones of every pair wise relationship in these books. I wish I could give these books to myself ten years ago.

Narrator is fabulous, the writing is terrific, I could go on. I am buying the paperbacks too just to funnel more money to this author. I will keep on with the audiobooks as my first read through though, before I reread the physical books.

Masterful ending to an epic scale series

When I purchased Book 1of this series, It was based on a few prior listening experiences with narrator Gary Furlong whose high quality narrations I really enjoyed. Therefore, I expected a decent story from Hailey Turner whom I had not read yet since Gary Furlong seemed to me to always be paired with quality story writers in LGBTQ Romance and Sci-Fi/Fantasy. Well, not only was Book 1 a wonderfully imaginative and satisfying story masterfully narrated by Gary Furlong but this entire Series just kept drawing me in deeper and deeper through Books 2-6. Each of the books in the series skillfully develops the main characters and progresses the main plot while adding new characters and unique plots which cumulatively builds the Series into a fully epochal heroes tale. A tale that needed an appropriately grand ending!

Since the first 6 books are each so individually excellent, I have often re-listened to them as I impatiently awaited release of the final Book 7 on October 1st. I freely admit that I was so deeply invested Intellectually into the story and emotionally into the characters that I set some extremely high expectations on Hailey Turner’s storytelling skills and Gary Furlong’s narration skills for delivering a concluding story fully deserving for this outstandingly series. I am so grateful that both of these awesomely talented professionals so masterfully surpassed these high expectations in A Veiled and Hallowed Eve - Book 7. Hailey Turner earned my even greater respect for her imaginative and sensitive story writing. I am equally awestruck with respect how Gary Furlong narrated the final story in such a consistently poignant manner given the narration of such a large and complex volume of characters.

I dedicated October 1st listening to A Veiled and Hallowed Eve - Book 7 in its entirety. As the final book of the Soulbound Series, Hailey Turner creates once again a fully believable mortal, immortal and magical world. All of her characters (be they major, minor, or incidental - good or evil) are carefully described and fully contribute to the story. There is no waste or “fluff” regarding their role within the story. The same precise skill also applies to the scenes throughout. The cumulative scope of the series is epic therefore one must acknowledge that Hailey Turner demonstrates genuinely expert skills in writing the characters and scenes so precisely in order to so successfully achieve the grand scale of her epic story without losing the exciting pace of the series from beginning to end. Due to this grand scale, equal acknowledgment of expert narration skills must be given to Gary Furlong. His range of voice is impressive. Despite the huge volume of character dialogue, he narrates with such consistency and sensitivity that he truly adds a uniquely valuable dimension to the audio Series books which will of course be missing in any non-audio format.

While I will not offer any spoilers, I will say that there were some surprises woven into a richly exciting story that more than fully completed the various closures needed from preceding books. Admittedly, I cried often and sincerely throughout as the story drew to its final ending. So most assuredly A Veiled and Hallowed Eve - Book 7 is a “Heavens -vs Hells” story but it is the grand conclusion to a fresh, exciting and richly dimensional Soulbound Series that I highly recommend.

Can’t think of any further praise to recommend this book as well as the entire series except perhaps to selfishly wish that the were more stories and the series could have kept going on - they are genuinely that outstanding!

Exciting and fantastical world

To really enjoy this audiobook, I suggest listening to the first three in the series, you won’t regret it they are just as good as this one.

Hailey Turner writes action, adventure and suspense unlike any other I’ve read so far. Turner has an incredibly ability to draw in listeners/readers with the story and keep you hooked. The characters are funny and endearing. Each with their own incredible personalities and quirks. The plot is insane and action packed! You never know what’s going to happen next and your never disappointed.

Greg Furlong did an amazing job with this series, especially this book. Always crisp and clear, concise in tone and wording that the story comes off extremely well presented. From one scene to the next, Furlong bring life, passion and oomph to the story. You can tell he is really interested in the stories as he reads them, and as excited about what is happening as we are.

It just keeps getting better!!

The world, the action, the twists and turns! This series is AMAZING! Another story, another case for Pat and another challenge to face with Jono at his side.
I love the mythological detail and depth. every god and creature seems to have a roll, I look forward to the next adventure!
Now I have to say, WADE is awesome! He's a standout in this story and adds a lightness to a somewhat heavy story with his unique humor and typical teenage behaviour. I think he's my favourite character at the moment and I can't wait to see him grow into his own!
an unique and complex world and easily one of my all time favorite series!!! can't wait for the next one 😁

Magnificent!

This is another fantastic part of Patrick and Jono's story in Hailey Turner's alternate fantasy world. I love the mix of magic and myth. Wherever Patrick goes, trouble follows (or maybe he just unearths it), and this time Chicago is in the cross hairs. I love the way the Gods all come and go at will, and how they have adapted to exist in the modern world. I love Patrick and Jono! They still experience some growing pains in their relationship, and sometimes get pulled between wanting to protect each other and keeping communication open, but there can be no denying how much they love each other (even if Patrick can't say it.) Then there is Wade...dragon fledgling, pickpocket, always hungry, and a constant source of humor and amusement. He can be bratty and pouty, but he is also loyal and protective of Jono and Patrick when things get rough. I absolutely love this series, and hope Hailey gets the next one out soon. I want to know if Patrick will find a way to save his sister.

The narration is always fantastic. I cannot say how impressed I am by the way Gary Furlong makes all those long and complex people and place names roll off his tongue like a second language. The sound editing is perfect, and I never hear a stumble or mistake. Really helps the listener get (and stay) immersed in the story.

I received a free copy of this audiobook from Gay Romance Reviews and am voluntarily leaving this honest review.

Testing the Soul Bond

When Patrick is sent to Chicago on business, Jono is left in New York to defend his god pack. Being apart doesn’t work well for these two as they both get into some serious trouble. I watched that and counted down the minutes until they could be together – and then watched the metaphorical fireworks when each found out what the other had been up to without them.

Hurt feelings and anger, anyone? Then the mother of all reunions. Poor Wade. And how is our friendly fledgling dragon doing? Well, he’s still eating continuously, getting into mischief, and then shifting when his help is really needed. So basically being Wade. Oh, and Hermes is up to his old tricks. The trickster indeed.

This book is fast-paced and full of gods, vampires, wolves, and everything else I’ve come to expect from Ms. Turner’s Soulbound series. At times I would almost get lost then I’d be anchored by some point of reference. Also, I had high hopes something good might come from Hannah’s reappearance. Patrick’s twin sister isn’t faring well these days.

So, yeah, action, adventure, the mother of all showdowns in the windy city, and a satisfactory ending. Everything I was expecting. I will say that fortunately I’ve read the three previous books as I think this is a series you need to read in order. Could someone with an agile mind and an ability to absorb many characters do okay? Sure. But it’s so much more fun to follow these two and their merry band from the beginning.

As always, I have to give a shout out to Gary Furlong. As a narrator he’s everything you would wish for when you’ve got dozens of characters with a myriad of accents. He delivers another tour de force performance. I’m glad I listened and I can’t wait to see what these guys get up to next.

More adventures with the gangs

Another exciting installment in the series. The adventure is nicely balanced with the relationship. Although I prefer it when Patrick and Jono are fighting together.

Can't wait for the next installment.

Loved this series so much

Everything I could want in an inclusive urban fantasy series. A little disappointed about the fat phobic comment in this book, but I've seen far worse in other books so I'll give it a pass for now.

Adore the characters and I'm praying there's another on the way to give closure to the final plot threads.
