Forgiveness is a hollow prayer you only hear in your dreams.

Patrick Collins has spent years handling cases as a special agent for the Supernatural Operations Agency, even as his secret standing in the preternatural world has changed. He should have confessed to his role as co-leader of the New York City god pack when he and Jonothon de Vere took up the mantle months ago, but he didn’t. Now that split loyalty will cost him at a time when he can least afford it.

Outmaneuvered, framed for murder, and targeted by the Dominion Sect, Patrick has to face a past full of lies to regain his freedom. Revealing the truth means he’ll need to give up the life that has defined him. Everything he’s fought to build with his pack is at stake, and losing them isn’t a price Patrick is willing to pay, but some choices aren’t his to make.

Jono knows they can’t cede any more territory if they want to win the god pack civil war spilling into the streets of New York City. But the souls of werecreatures are free for the taking when demons come to town and angels sing a warning no one can ignore. When Jono’s worst fear comes to life, and he loses the one person he can’t live without, the only option left is to fight.

Facing down the demons of their past and the ones in their present, Patrick and Jono will learn the hard way that some sins never wash away clean.

An Echo in the Sorrow is a 118k word m/m urban fantasy with a gay romantic subplot. It is a direct sequel to On the Wings of War. Reading the first book in the series would be helpful in enjoying this one.

Jono bit lightly at his bottom lip, the faint sting making Patrick’s cock twitch with interest. “Not going anywhere. Won’t let you go either.”

Patrick couldn’t bring himself to voice the fear that he might, and so kissed Jono again, because that was better than thinking about everything in his life he couldn’t control. Jono let Patrick set the pace of the kiss—quick and hard, needy in a way Patrick only ever was with him.

Jono responded with just as much want, but the touch of his hands was careful and soothing against Patrick’s body. One slid down his thigh and curled around the back of his knees to hike his leg over Jono’s hip, pulling them flush together. Their cocks slid against each other, and the dry friction drew a groan from Patrick.

“Gonna make a mess of you,” Jono promised.

Patrick hummed agreement, in no way capable of arguing against that. Jono had fucked him every single day since he’d been released from prison. Patrick couldn’t smell the scent of Jono on his own skin, but he didn’t care. It was a mark that he was pack, and he’d never say no to that or to Jono.

They both had a day packed with meetings, but in the soft morning light of their bedroom, their responsibilities faded away in favor of slow kisses, shared breath, and the warm slide of Jono’s slick fingers jacking them both off together. It was easy and warm and gentle, Jono in no hurry even when Patrick pressed biting kisses against his collarbone.

It’d been four years since the end of the Thirty-Day War. Four years since Ashanti had delivered the gods-given dagger into his hands and willingly sacrificed herself to break Ethan’s spell. The guilt Patrick had carried since then hadn’t faded with her resurrection by way of the Morrígan’s staff. Weeks wasn’t enough time to come to terms with the hidden details of Ashanti’s myth and a grief that had been ultimately misplaced.

Maybe he should’ve looked harder at her history, but he’d been a child when Ashanti came into his life, and gods were meddlesome and uncaring in the face of immortality. Ashanti was no different than Persephone and all the others who tore Patrick apart with their demands in that way. But in some ways, she was kinder. She had never treated him as anything but what he was—a weapon to be used until his soul debt was paid in full.

Hailey delivers yet another headrush of emotions and tensions

Soulbound-6-FullSizeAn Echo in the Sorrow by Hailey Turner

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I need more stars and time to process the total head rush that makes up this book’s story!

Every time I read a new entry in this series from Hailey Turner, I have to take a breath to absorb what she’s just blown my mind away with.

Book Six is no exception, in fact, it’s probably the most complex so far in all the Soulbound books as there are a multitude of big WTF moments that I won’t be spoiling at any point in this review 😁

As the tension builds in this penultimate chapter of the series long arc, we find Patrick and Jono dealing with an escalation of attacks against their pack while trying to chase up the missing Morrigan’s Staff (this book picks up almost immediately after On the Wings of War with Ashanti’s return still at the forefront.

As with all the other utterly brilliant books in this series, Hailey mixes mythologies with a deft hand, bringing the Egyptian pantheon into the mix, as well as the lesser known Hawaiian War God and his Nightmarchers.

This is one of the aspects of the Soulbound series I love the most. I am a mythology nerd and I freely admit it, but my knowledge is mostly related to the most commonly found pantheons – Greek, Roman, Norse, Egyptian, South American – so I am always delighted when someone new pops up to give me another rabbit hole to fall into.

As for Patrick and Jono, and the rest of the gang, things are as complicated as ever, but the strength of the bond between them is solid. The way Patrick and Jono’s relationship has developed throughout this series is another solid thread which binds the narrative together.

They are each other’s lodestone, and both are forced to call on that certainty at points during this book where I wasn’t sure if they’d get through it unscathed. Hailey is so good at driving an escalating sense of foreboding where you’re really not sure everyone you love is going to make it.

Here she drives the tension to the extreme, and that’s why, once I picked up this book, I didn’t put it down until I had finished it, the plot was simply too captivating to let loose and I couldn’t bear to wait to find out whether everyone comes through unscathed.

Emotionally, this book holds the reader captive from the start, we are taken through a multitude of different highs, lows and all points in between, before being flung out at the end with a exhale of mixed relief and disbelief at just where the narrative has ranged.

Book Seven will be both an anticipated release and a bittersweet one, as I am sure there will be more pain to endure and joys to celebrate before Patrick and Jono can safely take a breath and go on that vacation to Maui.

And I cannot wait!
