Quatrième de couverture :
The devil you know is never the one you should trust.
Special Agent Patrick Collins is dispatched to Chicago, chasing a lead on the Morrígan’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 stand-offish 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 102k 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. Reading the first book in the series would be helpful in enjoying this one.
L’Avis d’Eric :
Hailey a un don pour rendre chaque roman encore meilleur que le précédent.
Ici je me suis vu embarqué dans ma lecture sans pouvoir me détacher de celle-ci. L’action est omniprésente et nous ne soufflons à aucun moment.
Nous commencerons avec Patrick et Jono qui gèrent séparément des affaires, l’un pour son travail, l’autre pour sa meute naissante. puis ils se retrouveront…
J’adore chez Hailey la manière dont elle crée ses personnages, ils ne sont pas parfaits mais cela ne les rend que plus atttachants et réels.
J’ai adoré Wade dans ce tome, franchement il est absolument génial
Vous l’aurez compris cette lecture a été un coup de cœur et je la recommande les yeux fermés.
Hailey has a knack for making each novel even better than the last.
Here I saw myself embarked on my conference without being able to detach myself from it. The action is omnipresent and we don’t blow at any time.
We start with Patrick and Jono who run separate businesses, one for his work, the other for his fledgling pack. then they will meet again …
I love Hailey’s way of creating her characters, they are not perfect but that only makes them more endearing and real.
I loved Wade in this tome, frankly he is absolutely brilliant
You understand this conference was a crush and I recommend with eyes closed.
