Description

Never promise a life that isn’t yours to give.

New York City is decked out for the holidays, and Special Agent Patrick Collins is looking forward to a reunion with his old team when he gets assigned a new case. A human child is missing, and the changeling left in her place causes a prominent witch family to demand justice from the fae.

Meanwhile, continued harassment from the New York City god pack forces Jonothon de Vere to formally establish his own with Patrick. Doing so will mean a civil war within the werecreature community - a war they risk losing from the start without alliances. Making bargains with the fae is never wise, but Patrick and Jono have nothing to lose when a fae lord comes asking for their help.

The Summer Lady has been kidnapped from the Seelie Court, and if they can find her, Patrick and Jono will cement an alliance with the fae. But the clues to her disappearance are found in Tír na nÓg, and the Otherworld has never been kind to mortals.

Venturing past the veil, Patrick and Jono risk losing territory, time, and their very lives while searching for answers. Because the Queen of Air and Darkness knows they are coming - and the ruler of the Unseelie Court has an offer for them they can’t possibly refuse.

A Crown of Iron & Silver is a 107k word m/m urban fantasy with a gay romantic subplot and a HFN ending. It is a direct sequel to All Souls Near & Nigh. Reading the prior books in the series would be helpful in enjoying this one.

A good story

Okay, there was a lot here that I liked but, TBH, the story was quite repetitive and overlong at times. If I had been reading it, there had been some skimming. And yes, there was a lot of action, and that's part of the problem. Too much action, but not really a lot happening.

Add to that that there is a LOT of new characters and gods. Too many, to my taste. I felt as if I had to have a doctorate in Mythology to follow them.

And, personally I’m SO done with Ethan. I’m hoping in the next books there will be another bad guy :/

The constant recaps from previous books didn't help, either. This is a common mistake I keep seeing in series. And I really wish authors would stop doing that. You don't begin a series by book three, do you?

On the positive side, I really liked how the characters keep growing, Particularly Jono, who is becoming a great alpha. I also liked how Patrick was aware of becoming a better (and happier) person because of Jono.

All in all, an entertaining read.

Now, Gary Furlong... Gary Furlong I loved. He's such a fantastic narrator! A truly marvel ♥

So entertaining

I love seeing how much Patrick has grown and developed over the series. I've enjoyed seeing Patrick and Jono’s love and trust in each other grow and deepen. It's been a beautiful journey so far,

I love how the author has taken the Gods, Weres, Vampires, Fae, basically all mythological creatures, and incorporated them into a fun and adventurous story.

As always, the narrator knocked this out of the park!

Broome's Books Review

A Crown of Iron & Silver did not let me down. At all. First, let’s talk audio.

Gary Furlong does an amazing job in voicing Patrick, Jono, and the entire cast of unique characters. I could listen to him speak as Jono for forever. His voice was soothing, mischievous, and when the time called for it? Sexy as hell. With audiobooks of this length (ten hours) I tend to have issues staying interested. That was not the case with this audiobook. I was immersed in the Soulbound world.

Now onto the book review!
Patrick manages to get pulled into a case and into the complicated world of the fae (and brings everyone along with him on the ride). I enjoyed the Celtic, folklore that most of this story was rooted around.

We get to learn more about Patrick’s life in the Mage Corp and the men he spent his time fighting side-by-side with in the 30 Day War.

I’ve wanted to see pack interaction. And I got it! I needed to know how Jono and Patrick were going to lead their and work with their pack. Wade, oh Wade, he had me cracking up. I swear I’ve never wanted Poptarts more than after Wade munching on packet after packet.

Patrick and Jono make my heart melt into a gooey puddle of happiness. Their relationship is still growing and changing, but in all the best ways. Also, they just have a chemistry together that makes my breath catch.

Even better when read to you!

This story was so well written. Like watching a movie in your mind lol. The narrator had me convinced I was living the story as it went along. It was a great experience from an audiobook! Definitely recommend!

Loved It!

This series just keeps getting better and better, just like Hailey's writing! I am such a huge fan of everything she writes.

The world building is exceptional. You become immersed in this wonderful word that Hailey has created. The characters are real to you and you are invested in their lives. I was so happy to go along for the ride with Patrick and Jono. Gary Furlong does an outstanding job of bringing these characters to life.

Where will this series take us next? All I know is that I will follow wherever it goes!

Hailey Turner does it again!

This is the third book in the Soulbound Series and honestly might be my favorite. We learn more about the overarching storyline of the packs in the city, as well as a specific case for Patrick in the book. Patric and Jono are still a great duo! I loved it and will definitely listen to it again! Gary Furlong’s narration was spot on.

The best so far

IMO, this book is the most entertaining of this series to date. We get to meet members from Patrick's old team, journey to new realms, watch as Jono comes into his own as the god-pack Alpha, and the relationship between Jono and Patrick is finally making some real headway.

First of all, this book involves the fae. Not the fun loving tricksters of some stories, but the dangerous immortals, or gods, that use bargains as weapons, and lives as currency. The words spoken in a bargain must be carefully crafted, because a bargain made is a bargain kept in the world of the fae.

Patrick is called in on a case of a missing baby of a powerful coven leader. The baby has been switched at some point with a changeling child of the fae. He turns the child over to a special protective services division for unwanted changelings. He knows the odds of ever finding the witch's true baby are not good, and he has also been tasked with another, in most ways, more serious problem; finding the Morrígan's staff. Little does he know what that little changeling will bring in the future.

This leads to why his old team, the Hellraisers, are on leave and coming to New York City. However, when Keith and Gerard arrive, Patrick learns the first secret about his CO and friend. See, Gerard is half fae, and is now engaged to the Summer Lady. Now, the search is not only about the staff, but also Órlaith as well. When the fae owner of Sage's law firm runs into Jono and Patrick, they learn that the Dominion Sect, and more importantly, Ethan, are the kidnappers.

While this is taking place, NYC is under attack from the skies, where the Sluagh and the Wild Hunt are searching for their own quarries. The Sluagh is under the control of the Unseelie court beyond the veil, while the Wild Hunt are the force of the Seelie court.

Jono is dealing with political intrigues among the packs as well, due to the other god-pack's influence over the five Burroughs. However, there are those who are getting tired of the treatment they receive under Estelle and Youseff's rule, and are seeking a new, more generous, and kinder master. This puts their, and their pack's lives in peril, but they are willing to take the risk in order to join the new god-pack that is slowly growing in power and influential supporters.

After the first disastrous trip through the veil, Patrick learns the second, and most devastating secret about Gerard; a man he not only considered a friend and commander, but also family. This one hits too close to home, and Patrick feels betrayed, hurt, and angry. He carries this anger with him through most of the story, and only Jono is able to relieve the pain for brief moments. Sage confronts him and forces him to see some hard truths, but he ignores them at the time.

The story is full of action and the wrath of gods. It has monsters and demons, and is fraught with danger around every turn. It is also filled with the dynamics that go along with being in a pack, in a family, and in a relationship. I'm so happy to see where Jono and Patrick are in their relationship at this point. They have never had things easy, but they are working together, and Patrick seems to have accepted that Jono wants to be by his side.

There is so much happening in this story that I'm not going to attempt to summarize the book. But, I believe I have given enough information for followers of this series to know that this book is not to be missed. As with all series that follow a central couple, I obviously can't say that there is a HEA. But, there is definitely a HFN, and that is enough for me.


Gary Furlong did a great job with the narration as usual. He really brought the characters to life, and made the story an enjoyable experience.

* I received a free copy of this audiobook and I am leaving my honest review.*

Amazing and I need more!!

Something about this series that I just can't get enough. Between the characters and the storyline is all amazing. I love seeing how Patrick and Jono relationship grows but also I just love how Hailey Turner takes Mythology and puts a twist to it. Then Gary Furlong does another amazing job with this story. I can't get over how he voices the characters and just make me fall even more in love with this story.

Good story. Good narration.

Enjoy this whole series. The blend of mythology and urban fantasy is interesting.

This story felt a bit like a segue. I got a complete story, but it feels like the set up for another.

As usual the narration was a great addition to this book.
