Black Dog, Book 3

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.

I gave serious thought to giving this a bit higher rating and rounding it off to 5 Stars but in the end I decided a few little things kept me from doing it and 1 BIG thing for me that made me want to rate it higher. She made me like Shaw, it only took 3 books since I really have not liked him since book 1. I know that I am a bit biased since I have a personal lack of interest in succubi and incubus as characters (and a few other reviewers I know feel the same way) so making me like Shaw was an u ...more

Lie Down with Dogs is book three in the Black Dog series by Hailey Edwards.

I enjoyed Lie Down with Dogs. I could not put it down, but it’s not the strongest novel in the series. Thierry is trying to come to terms with the events that happened in the last book Heir of the Dog.

The novel was a steady pace to read, entertaining, but not much happens until after the 50% mark and the author did give the reader a few surprises at the end that I did not see comin

I've decided to write a deliberately obtuse review in an attempt to prevent spoilers for Lie Down with Dogs.

Please keep in mind Lie Down with Dogs by Hailey Edwards is the third book in a four book series all published. Therefore, if you're still on the fence about reading this series & have decided to read a few reviews as a determining factor, proceed with caution. I will attempt to minimize spoilers but this is book 3 in a 4 book series. Spoilers are likely in your particular case.

Dammit. Love triangles mess with my emotions. I’ve never been a fan of Shaw, but now I just don’t know how I feel. As the story begins, Thierry has been separated from her new husband, Rook, and she is back home, at least for the next year until she must return to Faerie to be crowned Queen. So she decides to go out on one last vacation with her best friend to Florida. Shaw tags along to work on a case nearby. And of course, she has her two fae guards along with her giant shape shifting cat, Dio ...more

Poor Thierry, she does NOT have a good time in LIE DOWN WITH DOGS. She has a crown laying over her head she doesn't want, she has a phone stalker, her best friend's family is no longer behind her, and her new bodyguards aren't on her side like she thought they were.

I was SO torn over the whole Shaw V.S. Rook dilemma after reading HEIR OF THE DOG, but I think LIE DOWN WITH DOGS did a really good job of finally making me choose a guy to root for. A lot of things were revealed and it was easy to se

Still invested in the stories and this one was good, just not great. It rides the line of YA (which it feels like) and NA (which is where the ages of the characters land it.)

Lie Down with Dogs is another awesome read in the ‘Black Dog’ series in which we re-join Theirry on her adventures.
The last book proved a real game changer in the series and left me thinking ‘wth’ just happened? Theirry’s life was completely turned around and if you though you knew where the series was headed…. Like me, you would be wrong.

OMG! These books are killing me. In a good way. In a "can I squeeze in one more tonight or should I think about getting sleep at some point?" sort of way. (Answer: I can at least START the next book. I might not finish it, but I can TRY!)

Thierry and Shaw and OMG! YES! I'm not saying I agreed with some of the choices he made, but I'm glad things are finally getting ironed out between them. I mean, at least they're communicating, right? Communication is KEY. Especially when you can drink someone's

Thierry´s trying to come to terms with the future she´s bound to, to return and rule as Queen in Faerie within a year, but it´s hard to give up on life as she knows it, her friends and her mother.
Mai convinces her to take a vacation in Florida, sun, beach and fun, but that doesn´t turn out as planned. With her royal guards, the giant cat she befriended in Faerie and not to mention Shaw and her being his only means to feed..

Thierry is now a princess of Faerie thanks to her new husband Rook. She is given a one year reprieve and she hopes to find a way out of this mess in that time. In the meantime Shaw shows up and lets he know that something happened and he can now only feed from her. And if things aren't complicated enough she finds out her mother in law the Morrigan wants the throne for her own as well as the human world.

This was good, the second is still my favorite but this was entertaining. Mostly, I don't ge

Kindle Unlimited, basically Dog Eat Dog World: Limited Edition Bundle (Black Dog) an omnibus type book, order given is not necessarily by 'set' or collection but by order blurb said in the one book. Rather hard to figure out rating when there are multiple stories in 1 large collection, as usually don't like all of them the same, so had to figure out whether a 3 or a 4 basically but figured liked it overall 'okay; but not really invested in any.

I really am enjoying this series. Thierry is the Unseelie Princess, soon to be crowned Queen, a position most fae would die for, but one that Thierry is desperate to get out of. She is back in the mortal world, trying to live her life as normally as possible, yet this time she has a talk gigantic cat and 2 bodyguards following her every move.

When her best friend and roommate Mai suggests a short vacation to Daytona Beach to get away from everything, they both jump at the chance, but unfortunate

Lie Down with Dogs (Black Dog #3) by Hailey Edwards Book three takes place after Marshal Thierry Thackeray’s return from Fairy. She negotiated a year in the human realm before returning to Fairy as Queen. Mai and Thierry plan a vacation in Daytona where they of course run into trouble because Thierry’s life is never easy.
Thierry has a lot on her plate. She was tricked into being Rook's wife in book two. She is dealing with Shaw’s feeding situation. Work doesn’t want her on any life treating mis

Well, obviously I didn't like it.... I hate when that happens.

This book is slow, up until maybe have way through all that's really going on is girls on vacation...
And Thierry whiny a lot! She becomes passive and things happen to her. She doesn't take initiative short of saying all the time how she doesn't what to be queen... She doesn't research, she tries to catch a genie to make a wish... that's like the first view pages... and then that's it...

The interesting parts only start 70% in. After th

Another fabulous tale

I love the characters, I love the edge of the seat drama between them as well as the suspense... I LOVE that she understands an ending! There are so many parts that I love, I can't wait to start next book.. I just realized though that it will be ending soon.. What to do!

Getting better

Still I worry about her intelligence, even with the excuses they use she just leaves many opportunities walk by, and takes way too many risks. I don't get how she can still be so trusting and naive, and I get she is the good one, but having a good heart doesn't mean she has to be so stupid.

As always, loved it. I'm DYING to get my greedy little hands on Old Dogs, New Tricks (which doesn't come out until JULY *whines*)

Full review to follow when I can locate my review notebook that has all my notes in it.

I found this so disappointing compared to the first 2 books, the story just felt as if it dragged, the last 100 pages was all you needed to read for the main storyline, which leads to the final book.

What I liked:
-Thierry and Shaw. I really love these two together. They have fantastic chemistry, still some of the absolute best I've read in paranormal fiction. Their interactions are perfect as partners, both at work and personally. I feel like they bring out the best in each other and I really hope they somehow end up together.
-Politics. I thought it was pretty awesome that Thierry's new position isn't being forgotten about until it's important. She is forced to constantly think about how her

3.5 stars - rounding down (rounded up on the last one)
Somehow I find myself liking the mc less with each book. It's like she's developing in reverse and losing her character in the process. Or maybe it's more like she's now acting her age, whereas in the previous two books she came across as several years older than she actually is.
Halfway through I was just about ready to call it quits, luckily she got her act together again in time - somewhat.
Still the story itself is quite good, I like that

Fast read,

Good storyline, no vacation for Thierry, Surprises at the end. One book left to wrap up Thierry's story. Thierry and Mai take last minute beach vacation to Daytona. Shaw tags along to investigate family mystery in nearby Orlando. Danger and mystery converge. Good story and good seg to final book. Leaves me ready to move onto last book and see how it all wraps up.

OMG! Buckle up and prepare yourself for deceit, collusion, and the most shocking outcome so far. This non-stop thrill ride has just upped its game and left me dizzy rehashing the clues trying to discover this outcome. To say that Thierry, Mia, and Shaw have been put through the wringer in this episode, is a glaring understatement. This has to be the best installment of this series and, I just can't wait to see how this final book is going to get any better. Wow! This Was Amazing!!!!! ...more

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.

“Thierry, you must learn not only when to lift a burden, but when to set it down.” He patted Shaw’s lax face with his paw. “Otherwise, your back will break under the strain, and everyone who depends on you will be left as sheep without their shepherd. Do you understand?” 2 likes
