Faerie teeters on the brink of war and the mortal realm swells with fae refugees desperate to escape the bloodshed. As a half-blooded fae, Marshal Thierry Thackeray has a stake in the outcome of both realms and isn’t afraid to knock a few heads together if it keeps the peace.
When her father goes missing, the only hope of negotiating a truce between the light and dark fae vanishes with him. Eager to avoid another Thousand Years War, the Faerie High Court reaches out to the one person they believe can track him down—the daughter who shares his curse.
~ 4 Heir of the Dog Stars ~
Heir of the Dog is book two in the Black Dog series by Hailey Edwards. We are thrown back into Thierry’s life, with all the action-packed adventure.
My first impression: I thought I was missing a book or something from the way it starts, but we soon learn she is a year older, her relationship with Shaw did not work out, and she’s hard at work as a Marshal.
Thierry is developing into a kick ass, strong female, who takes no prisoners. She is dragged into Faerie and we get to see what Faerie is like and the political games they play. We learn what being the Black Dog’s daughter means and we get a few surprises along the way. She ends up having to make chooses she did not want for herself as her life changes.
A new man enters the picture. Thierry is not quick to trust him and she shouldn’t, even though she is attracted to him. But, there is Shaw and what choices she will have to make with him. Thierry is a strong female, but the men in her life are all posers and users and it’s sad she keeps going back for more. Not one is worthy of her. I’m not sure how I feel about the male relationships in this series.
Heir of the Dog gives us danger at every turn, an unfamiliar world that Thierry must maneuver in, along with her still ever growing powers as they continue to devleop. Action-packed and unique, story that keeps building to move Thierry along. I look forward to continue this series and seeing where things go from here.
