With tentative peace established in Faerie, Thierry returns to her job as a conclave marshal in Texas while the countdown to her coronation begins. But what happens in Faerie doesn't always stay in Faerie. A crown wasn't Theirry's only souvenir from her trip. Her new husband, Rook, is scheming again, and this time his plans are invading her dreams.

When her best friend throws a beachside going away party, Thierry is grateful for the distraction from Rook...and from Shaw. But her presence in Daytona rouses an old evil, one who wants the future queen as the crown jewel of his private collection.

In Lie Down with Dogs, Thierry is trying to come to terms with what happens in the previous novel. All while doing her job and attempting to enjoy her freedom until she has to return to Faerie. She takes a trip with her friend but trouble finds her. Her ex, Shaw, is in Orlando searching for his missing sister-in-law and some selkies are up to no good and a bunch of other complications.

The story dragged for me until about midway when the action hit and then it was one thing after another. While I enjoyed the plot twists and romantic complications, it was sometimes over the top.

Mooreghan Martin narrates and while she did a great job, from different voices to pacing, Thierry’s voice began grating on me. I am going to give the next installment a chance before deciding if I am going to part ways with this series. I love the author and don’t know if it is me or the storyline.

While Thierry is away, the Morrigan will play. Snatching the crown from her daughter-in-law’s head wasn’t the motherly thing to do, but Thierry doesn’t mind trading the throne in Faerie for the ratty couch in her Texas apartment. The old crow is welcome to it. But ruling one world is not enough. The Morrigan wants an all-access pass to the mortal realm too.

An attack on the marshal’s office leaves Thierry shaken…and Shaw missing. Now the fight brewing since Thierry took up the Black Dog’s mantle has landed on her doorstep, and the only way to save the man she loves is to defend the title she never wanted.

Old Dogs, New Tricks turned this series around for me and, of course, it’s the last book! Unlike the previous audiobook, this one held my attention from the get go. We’ve got an attack at the marshal’s office. Discovery something about Thierry and have to deal with the Morrigan who, apparently, wants access to the mortal realm.

Thierry will work with her Dad on this. Shaw has been kidnapped. It was interesting to see her come into her powers and accept things. She also makes peace with her parents and I think begins to understand and accept them. Along the way, Thierry will take back what she wants and perhaps find her happy.

Surprises and a strengthening of the romance ended things strong for me. I finally felt the romantic connection and enjoyed the fast-paced, action packed ending to the Black Dog series.

Mooreghan Martin continued with the narration and enhanced my enjoyment.

About Hailey Edwards

Hailey Edwards

Hailey Edwards writes about questionable applications of otherwise perfectly good magic, the transformative power of love, the family you choose for yourself, and blowing stuff up. Not necessarily all at once. That could get messy. She lives in Alabama with her husband, their daughter, and a herd of dachshunds.

About Mooreghan Martin

Love is at the heart of Mooreghan Martin, with cute meetings, wills in battle, the connections of family inherited and made, and the crossing of stars being a handful of stories told. She enjoys the existence of all inclusive, and some of her favorite stories can be found in the literary fiction, cozy mystery, paranormal, rom com, contemporary romance, and erotica genres. From the physical to the spiritual, love seeks out more of itself, and Mooreghan acts as a conduit of love, a guide to love, and as an active participant in the story of love.
