Summary

Forgiveness is a hollow prayer you only hear in your dreams.

Patrick Collins has spent years handling cases as a special agent for the Supernatural Operations Agency, even as his secret standing in the preternatural world has changed. He should have confessed to his role as co-leader of the New York City god pack when he and Jonothon de Vere took up the mantle months ago, but he didn’t. Now, that split loyalty will cost him at a time when he can least afford it.

Outmaneuvered, framed for murder, and targeted by the Dominion Sect, Patrick has to face a past full of lies to regain his freedom. Revealing the truth means he’ll need to give up the life that has defined him. Everything he’s fought to build with his pack is at stake, and losing them isn’t a price Patrick is willing to pay, but some choices aren’t his to make.

Jono knows they can’t cede any more territory if they want to win the god pack civil war spilling into the streets of New York City. But the souls of werecreatures are free for the taking when demons come to town and angels sing a warning no one can ignore. When Jono’s worst fear comes to life, and he loses the one person he can’t live without, the only option left is to fight.

Facing down the demons of their past and the ones in their present, Patrick and Jono will learn the hard way that some sins never wash away clean.

An Echo in the Sorrow is a 118k word m/m urban fantasy with a gay romantic subplot. It is a direct sequel to On the Wings of War. Listening to the first book in the series would be helpful in enjoying this one.

Epic!

The twisted and dangerous path continues! I love the whole Soulbound series and family and loved all the twists and turns Gary has interwoven throughout this series and this one is no exception! you can feel the danger mounting as the end draws closer, I'm sad for it all to end but everything is falling into place for an epic finale. I'm so glad Sage and Merek were able to get married safely and I look forward to more if this awesome God pack, world, family and masterpiece of Hailey's creation. 100 percent recommend this series. it's totally epic!!!

Amazing

How do I write a review this far into the series without giving away spoilers? This is the penultimate book in the series I think and things are getting plotty and detailed. This one follows on almost immediately after book 5. There's a great blend of different myths and legends that the author uses in their epic story. The relationship between Patrick and Jono has developed over the 6 books and feels solid and secure no matter what is thrown at them.
I'm looking forward to doing a complete series listen through just before the final book releases.

Absolutely amazing!!!

What a heart stopping rollercoaster of a ride!
Patrick and Jono are once again navigating the insanity that their lives have devolved into.
An absolutely thrilling page turner.
Gary Furlong has of course once again done a brilliant job continuing narrating this amazing series.

She did it again!

With every book in this series, I think, "It can't get any better than this." But it does! More struggles, more surprises, more twists, more friends, more enemies. more gods, more packs, more successes, more failures...more of everything that makes this series so addictive. I won't say anything about the story itself, because you'll want to listen for yourself, and spoilers suck, but there is plenty of action, angst, friendship, passion, danger, and...demons to keep you enthralled. I am so eager for the conclusion of the series (only one more book!) because I want to see how everything works out in the end, but I will hate to say goodbye to Patrick and Jono. Regardless, it is going to be a long, hard wait

The narration by Gary Furlong is fantastic. He captures the snark and sarcasm of Patrick (and others) perfectly. The pacing and delivery is spot-on, too.

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

Jono and Patrick in trouble

Hailey Turner’s Soulbound books are complicated. I definitely recommend reading them in order, if at all possible. Could you step in at any point? Sure. Would you get the Loki jokes? Maybe not. Have to say, I laugh every time he appears. And Wade. Can’t forget the perpetually famished fire dragon.

Patrick Collins works as a mage and agent for the SOA. What he neglects to mention to his bosses is that he’s got a soulbond to the werecreature Jonothon de Vere. Slowly, through no fault of their own, they’ve been accumulating a pack. That brings them in conflict with other established packs in New York City. This all comes to a head in this book. Jono and Patrick have to fight to save their pack. But the battle is all-out and epic.

I enjoyed the book, but I won’t go into many details. Best left to the listener. I am desperate for Hannah’s outcome, though, so I’ll definitely keep listening. And speaking of listening, Gary Furlong is the narrator for all these books and he’s just amazing. I can’t wait for the next one.

Brilliant addition

Brilliant series and Hailey Turner just keeps adding super twist to the story. Jono and Partick are in for another great adventure that will lead them to claiming what should be theirs. Gary Furlong make the extra wait bearable with the fantastic narration that adds so much more to the already brilliant story.

Fantastic penultimate book of this superb series

This series is an instant must read as soon as the latest edition is released and An Echo in the Sorrow does not disappoint in any way! From the plot (in this book and overall series arc), the characters, the action and drama that constantly keeps you on your toes, you're grabbed from page one right through to the end. This is a book/series that has to be read in order due to the ongoing series story arc.
There is a lot going on that has Patrick and Jono have to contend with -the Dominion Sect, the rival god pack, Patrick getting arrested for murder, hunters, demons, Gods constantly coming through the veil, as well as Sage and Marek's wedding that is coming up and the appearance of Ashanti at the end of the previous book. It's fast paced but Hailey's writing does not miss a thing, drawing on the smallest detail
Lines blur between Patrick's pack and his work, impacting what protections he can offer whilst at the same time a civil war spills out onto the street between his and Jono's pack and their rival pack, Estelle and Youseff. Those two will go to any lengths to keep their grip on the city which leads to disastrous results for those involved.
I cannot commend Hailey Turner enough. The world that she has created is vast and includes so many characters, packs, and gods. If not read close together, I think it takes a moment to recall who everyone is but it doesn't take long to dive headfirst into a fantasy world full of drama, action, fear, excitement and what seems a never ending journey for Patrick to pay his soul debt. I know this will be coming in the next and final book of the series. I agree wholeheartedly with another reviewer that it will be bittersweet as we come to the end of Patrick and Jono's journey but every single moment with the characters is worth it. Soulbound is one of my favourites to read and listen to and I cannot recommend it enough.
Gary Furlong's narration has been on point the whole way through this series and he has never failed to give his best performance, providing everything possible to Patrick and Jono's story. He's cemented himself as one of the top narrators, especially in this genre.

Fantastic!

Okay, so this is book 6 in the Soulbound series, and while Hailey Turner is really good at weaving some of the past events into the book, I wouldn't suggest reading it as a standalone. The series is amazing, so I really encourage you to give it a try.

I love that Jono is always there for Patrick, they both certainly need the support after some of the events that happen in this installment. They're just so perfect for each other, and I love them together, even when one or both of them are being difficult. LOL

I adored Wade and how he's coming into his own with each new book, and of course, I love Sage, too.

This book was filled with twists and turns, some of which made me really anxious. There were a few things happening that I've been waiting for since book 1, and setting things up for the last installment, which I can't wait to read. But overall, and in an attempt of not being spoilery, just know that this book has action, violence, friendship, love, and kicka** characters that are hopefully going to come out on top against Ethan and his allies.

Gary Furlong was amazing as always. I've been saying this since book 1, but I adore his Jono. The narration was pretty much flawless and he just brings every character, good or bad, to life for me.

I’m Not Ready!

The biggest difference between reading the ebook version and listening to this audiobook is that everything is magnified almost ten-fold. That’s in big thanks to Gary Furlong’s excellent narration.

Because this is the second to the last book of this magnificent series, several things are happening, all of which are keeping me on the edge of my seat.

I’d definitely recommend this entire series to those who love urban fantasy with mythology of different pantheons and one hungry dragon. Seriously, it’s an excellent series, it’ll suck you right in.

I can’t wait for the bittersweet conclusion book of this series.

A Great Buildup

In this next to the last book, events are barreling toward the final confrontation between Patrick and his father. But first, the problem with Estelle, her wolf pack, and the demons they've allied with, must be dealt with. Is Patrick's lover, Jono, up to this? Of course! And Wade steps up as well. Wade is a favorite---and his moments of comic relief are a nice dash to add to this hearty meal of an adventure. As always, the narration is superb. Gary Furlong does a terrific job with accents, and with the voices of various gods and werewolves.

Characters being stupid is not a fun plot mechanic

There's much less sex than previous titles, which I found nice.
The dialog is well done.
The main character making ridiculously stupid choices, which seem inconsistent with his usual behavior, almost ruined my enjoyment of the book. It's hard to care what happens to characters who behave so stupidly.
Seriously, there's lots of good fun with the book. But that just makes it more annoying when main character does stupid stuff.

A rollercoaster of a ride


I honestly feel like it takes a bit long for each book in the series to come out since I’m totally and thoroughly enthralled by Juno and Patrick.

The series may be a bit long but I assure you the journey is epic and it’s worth the wait. This one is just as action-packed and exciting as the previous one in the series. As hailey’s newsletter, this one is definitely a rollercoaster of a book. A wedding to plan, Fenrir that wants to come out and have fun, a missing god and secrets that got exposed. It really was a one very fun ride to experience Juno and Patrick once again.

I have come to fall in love with all the characters in the series especially Juno whose love and sincerity towards Patrick is never wavering and always anchoring him. Gary Furlong also did a divine job narrating the book bringing all these characters to life. I already can’t wait for the next book in the series.

Action-packed penultimate book!

THIS BOOK??? This was THE MOST action-packed of all the Soulbound books so far that had me guessing what could possibly happen next, and it had me sobbing by the end (but for good reasons). Rest assured this book does end with a HFN but it is a VERY hard fought road to get there and we still have one more book, one more epic showdown to go!!!

The rest of this review will be as spoiler-free as possible for this audiobook, but will reference things that happened in previous books.

Content notes include graphic violence, demonic possession with and without consent, torture, kidnapping, forced pregnancy (by a fertility god in a previous book), and dismemberment.

A lot happens in this book!! For anyone needing a refresher of what leads up to this book...there’s Estelle and Youssef (the other New York City god pack) making alliances no matter the cost in order to get Patrick and Jono out of the way, Ilya has control creating an army of the undead, Ethan and the Dominic Sect are still a threat because he wants to become a god, and Jono’s dire, Sage, and the seer billionaire Marek are engaged to be married. So, yeah. There’s a lot going on.

I loved seeing how all the pieces that have been laid out in the previous books are coming together, even if everything gives me anxiety. I just want everyone to be happy and for Patrick to finally get his vacation! Is that too much to ask? But until then, Patrick and Jono have a heck of a lot to do to clean up the gods messes. Patrick has been a pawn in their game for years and this book proves that all the gods have chosen their sides, and it’s getting really ugly.

This book is intense in all the right places, but still allows for some breathing room with some snark and levity at just the perfect moments. Wade is still a darling and I love him to pieces!!! Not that other characters don’t also need to be protected, but I would love it if Wade suffers no more trauma. He’s so young and he’s already been through so much! After this book too, I think Patrick might be right there with him. Patrick is put through the wringer even more than usual but I do love that the pack, this found family of his, can help him heal (along with his therapist).

The whole situation with Ethan and Patrick’s twin sister, Hannah, is just...a LOT. I think I’ll talk more about this when the series is done? I don’t want to spoiler too much right now but it’s something I definitely want to dive deeper into.

The next book (and last!) will certainly be interesting in not only how everything gets resolved but what life will look like for the pack and their alliances after. I’m kinda rooting for Wade to have his own book with his own HEA and even for Spencer to have a polyam book with Lucien and Carmen because I feel like I need it!! Everyone deserves happiness. Even beings who live to irritate Patrick but still begrudging help him.

If I had to give one critique, the one thing that confuses me the most in this series is Ginnungagap. Like, I get the definition of it in the context of this book but I don’t GET it? How does it work? It’s a place but not a place? What’s it even doing (or maybe not doing because it’s...controlled??) at the last fight in this book? I don’t understand it. It’s confusing no matter how much I try to understand.

There are new gods in this one! They don’t play a huge role like we’ve seen new gods do in previous books, but it was nice seeing some new myths and characters, no matter what side they’re on.

There are certainly characters I love who I worry about not surviving the next book just because they’re not the main characters and that means they’re fair game to be killed off. I desperately hope my faves will all survive, but I’ve never read how Hailey Turner finishes her long book series and I AM SCARED.

This audiobook is great as usual. Gary Furlong does an excellent job performing each of the characters, and his voice for Wade is still a favorite. I love that there’s so many switching of accents between characters (like British Jono to American Patrick) and it’s fun. I hope the audiobook for the next book manages to come out around the same time so we don’t have much long to wait for the finale!

All in all, I loved this book!! I adore Patrick and Jono and they’ve been through so, SO much in the year they’ve met each other! I can’t wait to read what else is in store for them after the events of this book and to see if they get their much needed vacation to Maui. I am definitely planning on re-reading all the books before the last book when it comes out!!!
