You can’t bargain with death if you’ve already sold your soul.

Special Agent Patrick Collins has been reassigned by the Supernatural Operations Agency to New York City. Navigating his new relationship with Jonothon de Vere, the werewolf he’s now soulbound to, is nothing compared to dealing with territorial disputes between the vampires and werecreatures who call the five b

As much as Patrick would give anything to not be part of this coup, he had promises to keep, places to be, vampires to kill. His life could be called a lot of things but never dull.

And it is also full of surprises...

This is the second book in the Soulbound series by Hailey Turner.
As much as I enjoyed the action in the first book, A Ferry of Bones & Gold, I wasn't sure I'll stick to this series because it got exhausting at times. As English isn't my native language I had a hard time keeping up with all the werecreatures, mages, vampires, werewolfs, gods, immortals.

Well in this one we get many more characters, but I got more invested into the story! Much more than I expected.

Arhgggghhjjjuhhvvcc - that's the noise my brain is making at how bloody brilliant this book is.

Full review to come when I'm at my laptop and I can get some semblance of order back!


Righty, brain back sort of functioning so here we go. A bit more detail about why this book is so bloody brilliant. As with Book One A Ferry of Bones & Gold Hailey takes well know mythological Pantheons (Greek, Roman, Norse) and mixes them up with the lesser known ones.

The previous book A Ferry of Bones & Gold was amazing and one of my few 5* reads of last year. It’s safe to say I was positively giddy with excitement when I started this and it didn’t disappoint.

Patrick seems determined to increase my stress levels as yet again he agrees to a life threatening deal with Lucien.

“I’m going to take over the Manhattan Night Court, and you’re going to help me.”

Seriously Patrick at least pause before you say yes and spare a thought for Jono and us your loyal f
I absolutely adored this!

It was much better going into this second installment knowing that romance wasn't the main focus (for the first book I didn't seen the note at the end of the blurb and thought it was be romance with a fantasy subplot not fantasy with a romance subplot) and that I wasn't going to get a ton of focus on Patrick and Jono and their moments were going to be more weaved in and out throughout the story.

I was much happier with the two sex scenes we got (one at the beginning an
I really enjoyed the first book in Soulbound series but this one was outstanding! I loved the characters, the interspecies relations, the politics and intrigues - everything melded together into thrilling and fascinating story. Fast-paced, full of adventure and sense of belonging this book grips you from the start.

Between werecreature murders and squabbling vampires Patrick can't catch a break. Still recovering mentally from all the events in June, he is thrust headfirst into a case that brings

All Souls Near & Nigh, just like A Ferry of Bones & Gold is my kind of urban fantasy! Lots of mythology, meddling Gods, errant vampires, and a thieving, hungry dragon ... in New York City. What could go wrong? It's a good thing New Yorkers can take pretty much anything, because if it can happen, it did happen in this book.

Patrick Collins is settling into his life with Jono, being soulbound and part of Jono's pack. There's a lot for him to get used to, and he's not the type of gu

More rollicking, explosive battles ensue when Patrick grudgingly agrees to help the viscous master vampire Lucien take over one of the local night courts. Mix in werewolves, jaguars, gods from multiple pantheons, and a fledgling dragon, and you’ve got non-stop, blood & gore, blow-‘em-up, spellbound action. I’ll admit I didn’t like this one quite as well as the first one, but it’s a worthy addition to this this wonderful urban fantasy series. I kept wishing Jono would do the big rev

Shelves: action
The driving motif of All Souls Near and Nigh is quite literally Deus Ex Machina. More than once, our protagonists, Patrick and Jono, are saved from impossible situations by one god or another, Patrick because he owes a goddess a soul debt, while Jono has a god living in his soul (more or less).

This time around, we are dealing mainly with gods based on Mexican (or Mesoamerican) religions - with a little bit of Navajo thrown in - both of the ancient and modern variety. If I have a niggle about th

Recommends it for: those in need of a great story (also in the second book in the seires)
Let’s be honest, the second book in the series is hardly ever as good as the first one. But thank goodness, this is not a case here. I loved A Ferry of Bones & Gold and I am glad to announce that All Souls Near & Nigh is just as great.

First of all, the plot is truly outstanding. It’s fascinating with just enough twists and turns. With enough action to keep you on the edge of your sit and enough explanations and descriptions not to be just a rush of events. The plot is fully developed a

Whoa. That was like edge of my seat exciting. My God. So much action! So much danger! So much adventure! And for me, so much fear. This book scared me and rode right on that edge of comfort for me.

And it has only been two months since they met? What? Two months? What, really?

Ok, yeah. That totally threw me. I don’t know how much time I thought they had been together since meeting in A Ferry of Bones & Gold but I for sure thought it was more than two months, a lot more! These poor boys can’t
I wasn't as familiar with the pantheon used in this one, so I'm glad there was an appendix/glossary...

This one started off with a little less frenzy, but made up for in a big way later. BIG. HYOOOOGE. Seriously, when/if I visit NYC again I'm gonna be very wary of visiting (view spoiler). (I think I might be a bit crazy in that regard, but whatevs.) On
I am very happy with this book. Urban fantasy is my favorite genre and we rarely get true UF with the main characters having m/m relationships. I had read the first book in this series and enjoyed it but felt it had a lot of problems with repetition and clunky world building. I felt the writing was good but that it really needed better editing. I almost didn't try this but I had really enjoyed the characters themselves and felt the series had a lot of promise so I decided to give it another try. ...more

Just like the first book. A huge win for me.
I loved everything here.
And we have a DRAGON!!!!!


Patrick and Jono are perfect together and even if the romance takes a back seat, it's there and we can see that their pack is going stronger just as their feelings for each other.
Love the secondary characters.

I can't wait for book 3. I want Estelle and Youssef to be put down NOW!

All Souls Near & Nigh is the sequel to the book A Ferry of Bones & Gold and continues the story of Patrick and Jono.

This book is simply yet another wonderfully crafted story. The star of this book is the intricate story line that continues the overall story arc and has it’s on elements too. What I loved the most about the book is that the author strikes a fantastic balance between the love story and all the other elements. All the elements of the book seamlessly work together to

Such a great book and story! The idea of the Gods and all of it is so good!

Patrick and Jono deal with vampires, mostly in this one, but as usual some Gods have come to disrupt the peace and the clans. Patrick makes more promises because he can't say no, Jono is trying to protect his pack, which becomes bigger and more awesome, their relationship is going stronger and I cannot wait to read and meet more Gods and Goddesses from other mythologies!

In this the mythology was not one I knew of but mad

This was just what I needed! Been craving something in the paranormal/magic/fantasy genre and this book delivers on all three!

It took a bit to get back into the story because it feels like book one was ages ago. But it left enough of a mark that I remember the story. Vaguely. So I’m somewhat tempted to go back and read the first book again. Lol

I am certainly looking forward to book three cos it sounds intriguing from the little nugget that was the last chapter. And, I like Wade!! I think

4 stars!


The dead will not rest.

All Souls Near & Nigh is a slow paced and engrossing addition to this series. The world-building continues to be so unique and very detailed, with well developed characters and a really cool take on magic and mythology. There’s still romance and some steamy scenes, all of which are balanced with action scenes and Patrick putting himself in dangerous situations.

Hailey Turner delivers yet another compelling Urban Fantasy
4.5 stars. Even better than the first!

Man, Jono let the protective alpha aaallll the way off the chain this time. And really, he needed to, because Patrick clearly has no sense of self preservation. He seems to think that, because of the mistake in his past, he should risk his life for everyone and everything as a way to atone. At least he seems to be accepting that he isn't alone anymore.

I may have even liked Lucien a little bit this time. Maybe.

Loved that we got so much more of Patrick and Jono, including two smexy times. And Wade is a brilliant secondary character!
As to be expected from HT, there is tons of action, particularly in the last third of the book.

I enjoyed this, no discussion, but Metahumans is still my favourite.

The series is heating up. I enjoyed this as well as I did the last. I cannot wait for the third book. I like Patrick and Jono's pack and I can't wait to see Fenrir tear into Estelle and Yousef.

Fantastic!!!! 4.5 Stars!!!!

This follow-up to the first in the series rocked! Be sure to check out the glossary in the back before reading so you have an idea of the gods involved.

I can’t say anything new that other reviews haven’t already stated much better than I ever could.

If you loved the first, this one will blow you away as the god factions fight for New York!
While I enjoyed the first book All Souls Near & Nigh excelled my expectations. It's action driven and follows a flawless inner logic and while the main characters are far from being flawless they show their complex structure and we see them grow while the story evolves into a great world building tale.
Even the gods don't give me much to complain this time. Yes, they are still self-centric, one dimensional creatures but it seems their aztec and native-american branch isn't as annoying as the

“If there was one thing death and the Aztec gods held sacred, it was human sacrifice.”

As one of my Best of 2018 picks, A Ferry of Bones & Gold not only left me in awe of Hailey Turner’s storytelling prowess, but it also led to a six-month long torture period while I waited for what became my most anticipated sequel of this year. I had enormous expectations for this book because, let’s face it, the bar had been set ridiculously high, but Turner delivered on every single promise to carry on th

There's so much I want to say about this story so that when I need to come back for a recap for the next book, I'll know what's going on. I also don't want to give anything away so you can live the book as fresh as I did lol.

This story is way better than the first. It still has a lot of people and a lot of letter agencies, but having met most of them in book 1, it's so much easier to follow. I also think this book reads a lot like an action film. I could totally see these scenes being on sc

Well another great addition to this series. In this installment we are fighting Aztec Gods & Santa Muerte who is looking for sacrifices. When a dead Were is found Patrick is called in to investigate. On top of that, Lucien has decided that he is going to take down his "child" & pushes Patrick into helping him. Patrick still feels responsible for the Mother of all vampires death. As it turns out the two are connected so taking down, I forget his name, the head vampire is not going to be a ...more

Hailey Turner is big city girl who spoils her cats rotten and has a demanding day job that she loves, but not as much as she loves writing. She’s been writing since she was a young child and enjoys reading almost as much as creating a new story. Hailey loves stories with lots of action, gritty relationships, and an eventual HEA that satisfies the heart.

You can keep up with Hailey's future project
