Publisher's 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.

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.

Another Triumph

Hayley has done it again. This series gets better with each volume which is a tall order because all the books are really excellent. Gary's narration is superior and makes the story come alive. I recommend each and every volume in the series and hope that Hayley continues the story.

buckle up!

Hailey Turner has mentioned that her running subtitle for “An Echo in the Sorrow” was “Actions Have Consequences, Patrick, FFS”, and she meant it! One by one almost every secret, lie and bad decision Patrick made (willingly or not) is bared to the world.

Patrick has been on desk duty since the events in “On the Wings of War”. Being requested by Casale for a simple stolen artifact case starts as a welcome slice of freedom, but quickly spirals into imprisonment as Patrick finds himself the prime suspect in a murder that exposes his ties to the werecreature community as a God Pack alpha.

While Patrick is being stripped of the protection of his badge, Jono and the packs under their protection are being targeted in increasingly violent ways by Estelle’s pack and the Crossed Knights, all with demons riding their souls. As Patrick and Jono battle in the streets and the legal system, they are assailed on too many fronts to manage as more gods and supernatural beings enter the fray or disappear, alliances are tested and unseen magic works to aid the Dominion Sect. With the God Pack civil war spilling into the streets and causing worsening collateral damage, Jono and Patrick plan to stand side by side as they finally take down Estelle. But they should both know by now that their plans don’t mean much in the chaos of gods and war, and Jono is presented the ultimatum of protecting his packs or the man he loves.

I am once again in awe of how Turner manages to create such densely action packed stories without sacrificing the emotional development of the characters. There is A LOT happening in “Echo”, and it’s not always action. Patrick’s legal issues are intense in their own way; there is a plethora of information, characters and maneuvering throughout—all of it having the emotional impact of a meteor strike. Of course, Patrick doesn’t do himself any favors. He’s a product of his upbringing and with the importance of secrecy drummed into him from an early age, he can’t seem to make himself share when he should. It’s difficult watching Patrick deal with the fallout and hard not to feel his pain (even when he makes it worse for himself).

While it’s good to see Patrick relieved of the burden of most of his secrets, it’s hard to see him stripped of all his shields—his badge, his name, his magic—and left so vulnerable and exposed. Patrick is left raw in so many ways by the end of this book; however, the cohesion of his pack/family, the support and love they have for one another is on full display. With Wade’s love language being food, him trying to feed Patrick or offering to buy him cupcakes are some of the many quiet moments of love conveyed throughout the book. And I am HERE 👏🏾 FOR 👏🏾 IT 👏🏾.

I was also pleased that the god pack civil war plotline was closed in the penultimate book of the series, as the threat the Dominion sect poses, their number of powerful allies and the lengths Ethan will go to to achieve godhood has grown in every book along with Estelle’s, and having to split their forces and focus on two extremely powerful battlefronts seemed like impossible odds.

Turner also did one of the best jobs of providing synoptic information without sounding overly repetitive or dragging the pacing. That was the only hindrance to my enjoyment of “On the Wings”—so. much. basic. info from earlier books about established characters and previous plots. I guess it’s to help make the book more accessible to those who decide to randomly jump into the 5th book of an ongoing, connected series, but it was tiresome filler for me. In "Echo" much of the backstory is more condensed and presented in a way that clarifies previously alluded to ideas/importance.

Turner also finally picks up a thread from the second book (“All Souls Near & Nigh”) dealing with a known Dominion sect member in the government that I was bothered had no follow up because it seemed kind of important. Patrick didn’t try to find out more, pass the info to Setsuna, follow up on the lead, nothing. To be fair, Patrick was in a bad headspace and I guess even he can’t keep track of every Dominion sect mole. Fortunately, the resolution in "Echo" doesn’t feel shoehorned into the narrative to obviously tie up loose threads.

The books in the series with the larger emotional connections/payoffs are my favorites and “An Echo in the Sorrow” is another heavy-hitter for me. It’s editing is tighter (probably because of the sheer number of new supernats and legal chess taking up so much space), and it doesn’t really let up—ever. Breathing room? A brief reprieve? Who needs it? Not you! Be prepared for crisis after crisis to fall on Jono and Patrick like dominos, perfectly setting the scene for the final book in the series.


Gary Furlong does an amazing job as usual when it comes to emotion, nuance and inflection. However, this is one of his weaker performances in the series as he completely removed Leon's accent, which fluctuated a bit in the last audiobook but in now practically nonexistent. Moreover, Leon often sounds like Merrick and since they tend to be in scenes together, it is even more noticeable. However, he handles the almost obscene amount of new character voices with a deft hand so overall the listening experience is still great.

Devilish Devine!!

Wow!! 4.5 Stars in this penultimate book in the series & Gary Furlong keeps killing it with his performance in this multicast saga.

There is lots going on here, but Turner does a fantastic job of reviewing the main plot points in case it’s been a while since you read the last book.

So...the fight for the NYC Alpha God Pack comes to a head with some crazy fights.

More gods come on the scene & it’s anyone’s guess as to whose side they are one.

There is a wedding to plan.
Fenrir wants to come out to play.
A murder charge locks up one of the alphas.
A missing god has the fae on alert.
Hermès keeps popping up.
Wade keeps eating.
Gargoyles!!
And more....

This is definitely NOT a stand-alone by any means.

My rec? It’s such a good series!! I ADORE hard-headed Jono and Patrick ❤️❤️

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.

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.
