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.

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.

Simply brilliant

This book is the sixth (and penultimate) in the Soulbound series, starts with Sage trying to wrangle the pack mates into preparations for her and Marek's wedding. As usual, though, the gods and the pack's enemies are not content to let them just get on with things. It continues directly after the action in On the wings of War, with the action and pace being just as relentless.
This book is brilliantly done, Gary Furlong does an amazing job throughout. Another hit.

Reaping what's been sown

This series just gets better and better, but sorrow is definitely an operative word for this volume. Lies and deceptions have come home to roost and Patrick and Jono must deal with their consequences at just the time where they need be unified and as strong as possible. The next and final book promises to be a real page turner and heart ripper if the plot threads in this one are any indication. I cannot wait! Gary Furlong gives an amazing performance here. All the emotions you hear are spot on.

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.

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.

Adore this series!

I seriously adore this series so much! I love these characters and they just keep getting better even if at times the make stupid choices I want to smack them for I still love them. There was a good amount of action to enjoy. I kept wanting to know what would happen next and I seriously need the next book! I need more Patrick and Jon. The narrator did a fantastic job bringing their story to life.

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.

Huge bang for your buck!

This is one of the best mm urban fantasy series out there and this was a fantastic addition to the series! Patrick and Jon are epic characters and this one was definitely edge of your seat the entire way through! I will be so sad to see this series end. Gary Furlong is fantastic as always, I love what he brings to the audio version of this one!

Better and better...

This is the 6th part of the Soulbound series and it was just as good, if not better, than the first one. Patrick and Jono and the cast of characters are wonderful additions to my mindful menagerie. This book finds some things getting settled, which I am super happy about, and the rest just a toss up of what is to come. Gods, Fae, Vampires, Wolves, & Magic...what a mix and what a ride. Looking forward to the next in the series and a part of me wishes that all that is part of the NY God pack, keeps on keeping on, but...loved it!!

Finally, the unnecessary wait is over.

I'm only giving this book 5 stars because of the writing style, but the book is a drag in the series. I mean, we finally see something that should have been done ages ago and would have resulted in a much better outcome in terms of body count. So, that was the only good thing for me. This honestly should have been the last book in the series. Yet, it continues on with nothing ever happening. Basically akin to a soap opera on paper and audio.

Gay Furlong was freaking incredible. Hands down one of the best narrators I've ever heard.

Excellent Experience!

An Echo in the Sorrow (audiobook)
MMy Thoughts and Review

When I began the “Soulbound” Series journey I never expected to find a paranormal world that encompassed all the myths and legends of old. The most unique part of the story-weaving is how each deity is intertwined with another, no matter their origin or mythos. Just as, “No man is an island,” neither is a god(ess), even if they believe themselves to be.

In this ongoing series, the action and drama are outstanding. The romance between the two MCs is there and it is a strong point in the series, however, the story is not run over or overshadowed by too many bedroom interludes (is that ever really a thing).

Patrick and Jono (MCs) are joined by an extraordinary cast of misfit characters (the pop-tart-loving Wade is my favorite) who make up The NEW YORK CITY GOD PACK. These guys fight daily for their right to live free from the pressures of gods, demons, shifters, and magical humans, all while keeping innocents safe. This book ripped my guts out a couple of times, and I began to think the series would end here. However, this is an HFN… of sorts.

As always Furlong was stupendous with the narration, so nothing but 10’s 10’s 10’s across the board!

If you love PNR and you especially love one that is filled with lots of good action do not miss this audiobook series!

The Story: 4.00 🌟🌟🌟🌟
The Narration: 5.00 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Overall: 4.50 🌟🌟🌟🌟. ✨

Wow! Breathtaking ride

This series has been absolutely amazing and I’m very sad this is the penultimate book in the series as I’m really going to miss these characters. The action and pace of this book are relentless making it a real breathtaking ride. Patrick’s professional and pack lives finally collide in this book leaving Patrick fighting for his future. I found this heartbreaking as we see more of who Patrick truly is under the barriers he’s erected around himself and we see the pain of his situation. He’s the only one who can fight for himself at this stage and I found it hard seeing him alone and poor Jono unable to help him. Meanwhile, Jono has his hands full too as the pack wars finally erupt and Jono’s pack fights for its life as well as the lives of all the pack members. It was brilliant to see more of Wade too as he gets to play a bigger role in this book - and yes, he’s still hungry!! I’m so invested in all these characters now that there were tears as I listened to what they were going through.

These books are made even more perfect by Gary Furlong’s incredible narration. I love this narrator and the voice he gives Jono is my absolute favourite.

I received an arc of this book and am voluntarily leaving an honest and unbiased review
