Black Dog, Book 1

Half-bloods with Thierry's skill set are given two options. They can join the conclave's marshal program, or they can pack their bags. Turn down the job offer, and you've just shredded your residency pass for the mortal realm and booked yourself a one-way ticket to Faerie.

Texas is the only home Thierry has ever known, and she's not going anywhere. Even if it means following in her notorious father's footsteps as a peacekeeper. But pinning on the badge opens her eyes to the fact sometimes fae need protection too, and that sometimes humans are the real monsters.

Half-Bloods, Faerie and Succubus, OH My...and I loved it. Dog with a Bone is the first in the Black Dog series and I can't wait for more. Thierry is a half-blood fae trying to make a her place in the world. Choices are limited when you are a half-blood, which puts Thierry as a fledgeling peacekeeper. Thierry's first assignment turns deadly very quickly. She must learn to rely on her inner strength and her partner to survive. Hailey Edwards has created a stunning, contemporary fantasy that oozes sexual chemistry. What it has in sexual heat is only enhanced by the non-stop action, riveting characters and wonderful world building.  Dog with a Bone is novella length but packs the punch of a full novel.  Edwards is an author I will be following.

I'd been interested in this series for a while. I saw it up for sale of 99 cents so i grabbed it. The cover graphics are enticing and i was drawn in. This paranormal had a bit of a slow start, but interesting enough to not put it down. The heat between Theiry and Shaw is push and pull. Just when you think they are goong to connect good action sets their attraction on the backburner. I can't wait to read the next book in the series. I give this book a 3.8 if the stars woild reflect that. The ending, in anticipation of the next book cuts off a bit sharply. But good thing is I want read more. Good read. Next in the series please.

**I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review** 5 stars! The night of Thierry Thackeray’s 13th birthday, she had her 5 best friends over for a fun sleepover…no could have foreseen what would happen that night, or that it’d be the end of those 5 girls’ lives – especially not the shocked Thierry that watched as she sucked the souls out of the girls with merely a simple touch of her left hand and left them lifeless husks on her bedroom floor.  But that’s what happens when your mother unknowingly has a fling with a fae being – you get a half-breed fae child that may or may not get powers similar to their father’s, and certainly won’t know how to use the powers should they manifest.  Forced to move from their hometown of Galveston, Texas to a small town called Wink so Thierry could be protected and taught by the conclave, while Thierry has thrived from all the knowledge, it’s been a difficult road for her mother and their relationship has been strained because of it.  And since she’s never seen her father – let alone met him – she has relied on her instructor and friend, Jackson “Shaw”, a Marshal who is like the police of the fae in the human world.  Being that he’s an incubus, it hasn’t been easy for Thierry to maintain a professional relationship with him through the years without wanting to jump his bones, but through it all they keep their relationship purely professional (with some minor flirting here and there). So when Thierry passes her rigorous test to become a Marshal herself – under Shaw’s tutelage – she finally starts feeling like she can give back to the world.  Only problem is that it she is once again paired with Shaw, but this time as his partner…and they are having an even harder time keeping their hands to themselves.  Thrust into immediate action on their first case, the pair is tasked with finding out how some major fae breeds – dangerous fae breeds – are making their way into their normally fairly quite territory at a farm of a very human couple.  The more they look into and investigate the two, Thierry and Shaw become convinced there is more at play than a normal looking farmer and his high-society interior decorator wife.  They become convinced that this time, it might just be the fae that needs to be protected from the humans.  The only problems will be proving their absurd claims and making it through their first case without falling into bed together!  When there are fae at play, it’s a guarantee they will never play fair… When I first started this book, I truly had no preconceived notions about it.  I honestly wasn’t quite sure what it was about – aside from the fact that it was fae related, which is a genre I usually enjoy reading.  But after the first couple of pages, I was seriously hooked and couldn’t get through the book quickly enough – to find out if Thierry ever meets her father, or gets a shot at Shaw, or what crazy thing she’d do next in the name of her job as a marshal.  The chemistry between the smoking hot incubus Shaw and half-human Thierry was immense and all consuming.  Thierry is smart, funny, and loyal – all the makings of a great heroine.  What a great start to a series – what will happen next to the Dog’s daughter…I couldn’t stay away from this series if I tried!

~ 4 Dog with a Bone Stars ~ Filled with tension, action, and a world filled mythical creatures! Dog with a Bone is book one in the Black Dog series by Hailey Edwards. This is my first time reading Ms. Edwards and I quite enjoyed this first installment in the Black Dogs series and love the cover for this book. As most things go Urban Fantasy can go so wrong or so very right! Dog with a Bone is filled with tension, action, and will keep you glued to the pages with a world filled with Fae, Magic, Half-Breeds, and more. It starts us off with a bang, meeting Thierry in an actin-packed situation and Shaw her training instructor and part-time keeper. We learning about Thierry though-out the book and what it means to be a half-breed and one with some very deadly magic. I'm not a fan of young teenage heroine's, like Thierry, who is 18, but Ms. Edwards did such a good job that her age and inexperiences never bothered me. Teenagers can be so dramatic, but not Thierry and that is what made her so wonderful for me to read. She is still insecure and conflicted about her powers, angry at her father, hurt by her mother’s inability to cope, and trying not to be a disappointment. She is always thinking about her next step. Shaw is all alpha male and has been around for sometime. He admires Thierry’s brains and determination, but is also attached to her more then he should be. As for their relationship I’m not sure what to make of it at this time. They are dancing around each other and some concerns. The plot is entertaining and will keep you engaged in the story. Dog with a Bone has a good mixture of mythical and fae creatures, snappy dialogue and some great action packed moments. I look forward to continue this series and seeing where things go from here Disclaimer: Copy provided by author via Novel Reviewers with the sole purpose of an honest review.

Dog with a Bone (Black Dog #1) by Hailey Edwards Half-human half-Fae, Thierry, just graduates from the marshal’s conclave program, and she learns that sometimes humans are just as evil as fairy. Dog with a Bone is a great story.  It was imaginative and fun.  It had numerous twists and kept me intrigued.  At 100 pages, it is a fast read that is well worth the time. Thierry is an enthralling character.  She grew up thinking she was human until a terrible tragedy occurred.  She has strong supernatural abilities but continues to be compassionate with a soft spot for protecting those that need it. I enjoyed her relationship with incubus, Shaw.  I like that she can resist him when others cannot.  They are good partners who seem to complement each other well. Dog with a bone was a stimulating read that was difficult to put down.  I look forward to Hailey Edwards’ next book in the series, Heir of the Dog (Black Dog, #2).

I always enjoy Hailey Edwards' books, and this one was no exception. My main complaint is that it was too short! I flew through the pages and wanted more. The characters were realistic and likable, and I found myself really rooting for Thierry and Shaw. I wish that she'd added a bit more world-building, but I'm excited to see what the next book brings.  Thierry was an interesting character, and she had a really dark past. I liked that about her. I hate when MCs seem perfect. She wasn't so tormented that she was angsty and whiney, though. She was very strong. I think Thierry was a good balance and remarkably well-adjusted, considering her life. Shaw was a bit more complicated, in my opinion, but I liked him quite a bit. He made for a good love interest, and he also wasn't angsty and angry, even though his past was also rough. The secondary characters weren't around a lot, but they were a colorful group - each one had his or her own personality, and I loved it. I can't wait to get to know them more.  The pacing and plot were fantastic in this novel, but the world-building was lacking, in my opinion. I still don't fully understand Thierry's gift - what are the runes for? I get that her left hand kills things and that her powers are growing, but I'm still confused about what she can do. I don't think Thierry knew all there was to know about her powers, either, though, so I'm hopeful that more explanations will be given in the next installment. Also, I would like to know more about the different types of fae and what their powers are. I just didn't feel like I understood the world fully. Of course the book was so short that there wasn't much room for world-building. The next one is supposed to be longer, so things should be explained in more detail. The romance in this book wasn't as hot as the romance in Edwards' other series. Every time it started to get steamy, something interrupted. Things were a bit sweeter and more genuine because of that, though, in my opinion. I'm looking forward to seeing where Shaw and Thierry go from here. The ending tied things up from this book, but set the scene for the next installment, which I can't wait to read.  Overall, I'd recommend this book to people who are tired of the same old paranormal romances. This one was a bit different and the characters definitely stand out in a good way.

I loved the characters and the premise was great in this but thought it needed a little fleshing out. Im not sure if its a series of shorts but I think it definitely could pull off and even deserves to have a series of full fledged novels :)

Urban Fantasy can go so wrong – or as in this case: so very right! The first installment in Hailey Edwards’ Black Dog series, Dog With A Bone is laden with tension, action and keeps readers glued to the pages.   Starting with a bang in the middle of a giant capture the flag game that is serving as the final exam for the Marshall’s programme, we meet Thierry in an action-packed, tension laden, muddy, rainy chase to ascend the tower and grab the flag, all one step ahead of her training master and part-time keeper, Shaw.  Brought to ‘shadow’ and train with Thierry, as her magic is deadly to many, her crush and insouciant banter with Shaw are matched by his own concerns and attraction to her, incubus-driven feeding aside.   All new Marshalls are required by the Conclave to serve a period of on the job training, and again, she is paired with Shaw: to the delight of her best friend Mei, and to her own concern.  While their first call involves eradicating a Chimera, the case is much deeper than a simple rogue fae, and Shaw and Tee are off and running.  Thierry is wonderful: still insecure and conflicted about her own powers, angry with her father, the executioner for the council on the Fae side, and hurt by her mother’s inability to cope with the fae half of her, she is constantly thinking about her next step, and not being a disappointment.  With a solid core of justice for all screaming in her head, Tee is concerned with making things right, or finding answers and solutions.  Shaw has been around longer, and while he admires Thierry’s guts, brains and determination, he is also more attached to her than he should be, and intrigued that she can (and does) see him, even in the midst of his ‘incubus moments’. These two are dancing between a mentor-teacher concerns that she is learning what she needs, while he has an overwhelming alpha reaction to her as a being, without his incubus thrall.  Neither is quite sure of the extent of her powers, but she is more than willing to jump into the mouth of danger (literally) to save him, and hopefully others.  Secondary characters are introduced and given solid personalities and defining characteristics, not the least of which is having the worst timing ever in terms of Shaw and Tee actually acting on the palpable sexual tension that is constantly rubbing between them.  Oh there are some kisses and some smoldering looks, and an almost there moment interrupted by a high ranking conclave member with an obsession for strawberry-kiwi scented hand sanitizer…… Yes, Hailey Edwards mixes laughter, mythical and fae creatures, snappy dialogue and some incredible life-or-death moments into this start of what promises to be a wonderfully fun series, and wraps it neatly with a long ribbon trailing to the next story.
