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.

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.

Keeps getting better...

And it just keeps getting better and better. Hailey Turner's stories are engaging, enthralling, and encapsulates the imagination. I love Patrick and Jono as a couple and as alphas of the NY God pack. This story finds the duo in Chicago, facing another pantheon of Gods and the trouble that ensues, whilst looking for an object to ensure that Ethan does not get his wish. For those who have not yet read any of SOULBOUND series, might I suggest you do. Each story is better and better. I cannot say much without wanting to share all aspects of this story. I cannot wait for the next in the series, but alas I will have to. But I will listen to them again. Great series!!!!

5 Stars All The Way

This is the fourth book in The Soulbound Series. You do need to read the previous books to get the most out of this book. Once again, this author has earned a 5-star rating from me (I don’t give out many). It is a spellbindingly wonderful story that is written great. The worldbuilding is complex yet understandable. There is a plot for the series, but each book has their own plot and subplots that tie in to the main one. Very entertaining and it was steady throughout the book. The characters are diverse and well developed and thought out. Patrick and Jono are the MC’s of this book. The secondary characters are fantastic too. I love Wade and his growing character is fantastic. You get to see his development and who he is starting to be. There was humor, wolves, shifters, mythology, gods & goddesses, snacks, mystery, action and so much more in this book. I was already wanting book five before I was finished reading this book. The narration was good and made the book enjoyable. Out of the series I think that the narration in this book was the most expressive. I can highly recommend as a great read and listen. I voluntarily read an advance copy of this book for an honest review.

Fantastic

This series is absolutely fantastic! This is the 4th book in the Soulbound series by Haliey Turner. These guys are everything...and this novel is sheer perfection! Turner really knows how to draw her audience in and make a statement...make you really care about her characters. This doesn't work great as a standalone so go back and start at the beginning. Loved every second of Gary Furlong's narration!

Excellent Story + Narration

Gary Furlong kills it again in this audiobook. His narration has always been one of my favorites and I think this would be one of the harder series to narrate simply because there are a lot of myths and gods and goddesses he has to learn how to pronounce. The voice for Wade is definitely my favorite, and only makes the character even more endearing.

This was a fun story. Not in a comedic sense, but in terms of new characters, higher stakes, the mystery of the cases, and laying the groundwork for a god pack show down. What I love about this book is that you know that Patrick and Jono are good. They’re a unit as two alphas in a god pack and they love each other a lot. Jono says this is words, and Patrick says this with his actions. In this story, they’re split up with Patrick being sent to Chicago to help with a case (and handling an undercover one on the side) and Jono helping out packs that are turning to their side while fending off Estelle and Youssef.

Trigger warnings for violence, murders, blackmail, death of a beloved beast. trading of souls, graphic depictions of a murder by hanging, and mentions of a fertility rite.

What I loved about this book is that there’s a bigger mystery at play in this story than in the previous books that’s not too different from a regular murder mystery. Except in this one, there’s a shady politician and, unsurprisingly, the gods are involved. There’s a lot of mythical beings in these books from all sorts of cultures, and this one introduces some recognizable gods like Odom, Frigg, Thor, and the Valkyries, while also introducing Hinon – a Haudenosaunee thunder god. The Valkyries were a nice addition to this book. I loved their modern day depictions. I found the vampires to be a very interesting bunch and how they have vampires in charge of their own New York City boroughs.

The plot twist really got to me because I wasn’t expecting it and I gasped out loud at that one. That was excellently done.

This book was packed with a lot of action as well, in between the two cases Patrick was juggling in Chicago. And I thought everything happened a lot earlier in this book than in the previous ones (which was great). Sorry to the Bean in Chicago. I think it’s pretty much done for at this point.

Jono had his own troubles to deal with in terms of the dispute over which god pack is THE New York City god pack. It’s been building up throughout the books, and Jono and Patrick have really been picking up a lot of packs as their own. So, we know something is going to go down at some point in this series, but it’s just a matter of WHEN. I think whatever needs to happen with the god packs will happen before we see a final showdown with Ethan, but I could be wrong. Ethan is a sneaky bastard, but eventually he’s going to run out of godheads to steal.

Maybe.

I loved Patrick and Jono in this book, of course. There is a little spat but doesn’t drag out too long. Wade is still a DELIGHT as he tries to eat Patrick and Jono out of all Marek’s tithes. He’s a much needed comedic break from the story that does tend to get dark at times. Poor Patrick is having a hell of a time in this book and it breaks my heart how much he loves his twin sister he’ll never see again because she’s been completely consumed by Macaria’s godhead.

I will say I'm not sure about some of the more regional accents in this audiobook, say in Brooklyn and Chicago, but as someone who doesn't live in those areas, I couldn't say if they were spot-on or not. But the audiobook was still really enjoyable.

I can’t wait to see what comes next in the Soulbound series!!

So Good

As always an fantastic book, for a awesome series, by a great author....
Patrick and Jono are separated for most of the book, but they each have trials they must overcome. Patrick has Gods, Goddesses, his crazy father to deal with. While Jono has the rival God pack, demon/hunters, and the nightcourts to deal with.
With new and old, enemies and friends alike this is as action packed as all her books.

Gary Furlong did an excellent job as always bringing these characters to life.

Not when I have you



Boy oh boy, is this book even more action packed or what?!?! Our boys are on a new adventure of their lives. Patrick is in Chicago for a new case for SOA and he’s also working for another one for Norn’s. He’s one busy detective and as always, upon his arrival to Chicago, he realized that he has one again bitten more than he can chew off. Meanwhile, Jono is back on New York facing his own problems. Knight Hunter’s has targeted him as their next project and they won’t relent and stop until he dies. And as always, Patrick is being kept in the dark by Jono and imagine how furious he’ll be when he finally finds out.

I mean this book is one exciting, action-packed and smooth read. We see the stronger bond between Jono and Patrick as well as how exciting this whole scenario is. I swear I’ll never get enough of these adrenaline filled and blood pumping battles and I love how trusting and loving Jono and Patrick are towards each other. And I love my darling Wade. He’s just so precious! All in all, loved the whole book and I’m counting the days when I’ll get next book in series on audio. Also, Gary Furlong did a spectacular job performing bff of the story. Gary you rock! 😉❤️

Wonderful narration.



This series of books is amazing. Unfortunately I’ve not listened to any of the books in the series before this one. The narration by Gary Furlong was excellent. To hear Jono and Patrick come to life was very nicely done. Wade was perfect (he was really the reason I wanted to listen to this one so bad). Very easy to listen to distinctive voices. The following review is similar to the book version.


Patrick is a mage, his partner Jono is a God pack werewolf. They are soulbound, which allows Patrick to access external magic again. Something they have to keep secret. They both strive to take care of their pack. Doing what ever they need to do to keep everyone safe. Sometimes at the expense of their own relationship.

Another fine addition to the series. Surprises, twists, assassins, gods of the good and bad variety, a very hungry dragon (probably my favorite in the books), and two men who just shouldn’t keep secrets.

By now the world building is fairly established but there were some revelations I wasn’t expecting. I liked the Valkyrie’s and their steeds. I couldn’t help but fit a movie stars face to one of the characters. And his part of the narration only added to the feelings.

The narration was really well done.
