Dark, bloody, and the perfectly gripping 2-hour Audible nugget. I have never read anything by Tamsyn Muir. If you follow my reviews, you might find that surprising as Muir normally writes about dark paranormal lesbians so that could not be more up my alley. Not to mention if you asked me what my favorite book-ish things are, the geek in me would immediately say either Dragons or Necromancers and considering Muir has a whole series about the often-overlooked necromancer, it would seem like a match made in heaven. Truth is I’m waiting. I’ve purchased her books but am waiting to binge them since the cliffys sound too painful, so I have been missing out on Muir’s writing all this time. I’m happy to say that is not the case any longer, and in just 2 hours Muir has won me over and now I really can’t wait to read her Locked Tomb series.
Just a reminder that this novella and audio are free if you are an Amazon Prime member. This is the 3rd book I have read in the Into Shadow Amazon series and it is my favorite. I have also read The Six Deaths of the Saint by Alix E. Harrow, which comes in a close second. It was a tough choice as both are so good, but Muir won me over by a quarter star. And finally, I also enjoyed What the Dead Know by Nghi Vo. It wasn’t quite on the scale of the other two stories, but it was entertaining and a fun read. I got to listen to all three on Audible, since they were free for Prime members, and it just took the experience of these stories to another level that reading them didn’t feel quite the same. I highly recommend listening to the audio if you can. 4.50 Stars.
