Heir of the Dog:
I was impressed with the first book in this series, but Hailey Edwards has exceeded all expectations with this, the second in the series. In the first book, we were introduced to Thierry and were shown her new life, finally realizing just who her father is and adjusting to life as a Marshall, tasked with keeping humans safe and Fae in line. To really have the best understanding of this book, you should most certainly read Dog With A Bone to meet Thierry and get a sense of her as a person.
In this book, Thierry is developing into the kick ass and take no prisoners heroine that was hinted at in the first book. Faerie is in crisis, and her father, the Black Dog is missing. While the Faerie High Court isn’t excited to do it, they have requested Theirry come to Faerie and find her father, thus avoiding another long and protracted war.
And the story starts with action and almost never lets up. Thierry is not really comfortable or even all that committed to saving a man she doesn’t know. But, she’s not got a ton of time to wait and see as the conspiracies, secrets, double dealing and questionable agendas appear almost instantly, and without Shaw available to bounce ideas and questions off of, she is on her own.
When Rook enters the picture, his moral ambiguity is obvious to all, and Thierry isn’t particularly quick to trust in him, even though she is attracted. But, there is the question of Shaw, and what choice she will, or will have left to make. With danger at every turn, her unfamiliarity with the world of Faerie, still learning her powers and the ever-increasing questions about Rook and Shaw, the story is one new element after another, all building to keep Thierry moving on, if not always in a straight line. Engaging, action-packed and unique, this story is sure to please.

When the wrong fae answers her summons, Thierry finds herself saddled with a royal pain bent on making her life difficult. Well, more difficult. Her ex is back in town, her best friend is heartbroken and to top it all off, the Faerie High Court has issued her a summons.
Black Dog is missing, and the only hope of negotiating a truce between the light and dark fae vanished with him. Eager to avoid another Thousand Years War, the High Court reached out to the one person they believe can track him down–the daughter who shares his curse.
