So I was really pumped to read this, I really like Hargrave’s writing and I’m also really excited to read The Mercies when it’s released. Plus, a feminist Brides of Dracula retelling? Yeah, I’m here for that.

Soul of the Sword pretty much picks up where Shadow of the Fox finished off. I really enjoyed the previous book in this series so was chuffed to bits to be approved for this sequel.
