Keep a spot open on your dance card. This is one ball you don't want to miss.
Grier is nursing a broken heart after Boaz announced his engagement to another woman, but life goes on. Or it would if vampire assassins would stop taking pot shots at her every time she leaves Woolworth House. Seriously, who sends archers to deliver murdergrams these days?
To protect herself, Grier must pull out all the stops, even if it means revealing her darkest secret. All eyes are on her, and—for the first time—she begins to understand why Linus wears so many masks. But the target isn’t Grier, and when the archers single him out, it feels like one of their arrows might have struck what remains of her heart.
How to Dance an Undead Waltz is the fourth novel in the urban fantasy series, Beginner’s Guide to Necromancy written by Hailey Edwards. Danger, discovery and a romantic development await you …
I have been having a blast reading through Edwards‘ novels. The Beginner’s Guide to Necromancy has it all, from a magical house to a wraith. Grier Woolworth is a necromancer who is goddess-touched. With each volume we discover more about her abilities. Because this is urban fantasy I recommend that you read the series in order of release. Each novel deals with a new threat against Grier as she hones her skills and finds herself.
“Make no apologies for surviving?”
In How to Dance an Undead Waltz, vampires are firing arrows at Grier and she is assisting Linus with a resurrection as part of her training. She is also organizing her coming out party as Dame Woolworth. Once again I was quickly pulled into the story from the death threats to family shenanigans.
Secondary characters, particularly the shifters add humor, tension and friendship to the mix. Between arranging for the ball, gathering ingredients for the ritual and the vampire attacks, Linus and Grier spent more time together. I adore Linus and loved seeing the changes in Grier’s thinking about him!
We see developments concerning the basement of the Woolworth house and oh my is all I have to say. The ball, twists and discoveries kept me reading into the wee hours.
“How can you tell when someone loves the real you and not the idea of you?” “They see you at your lowest,” he said softly, pitching his voice so Cruz had no hope of overhearing, “and they don’t blink. They don’t offer you a hand up, they offer you a hand to hold while you rise on your own.”
Edwards offers a nice blend of action, suspense, snark and swoon. I am curious to see what the author has in store for Grier and the gang.I hope you’ll read or listen to How to Dance an Undead Waltz and the rest of the series.

Oh your reviews have got me really excited to take on this series! Are you listening to them on audio or did you get them from KU? I noticed the KU hashtag. I was thinking about getting them in audio but was not sure what the narration was like.
When I first began these were not on audio, so I just read them.
Thanks for your review and reminding me to get back to this series. I have the first 2 books but havem’t read them yet. So many books, so little time……..!
