The Epilogues: Part I
Hadley has worked her butt off to earn her title as Potentate of Atlanta. All that’s left for her is the gauntlet. A show of prowess for the citizens of Atlanta. A taste of what their new POA can do. She’s ready to dazzle them and bring home the prize.
Until an old friend gets kidnapped. The price of his freedom? Her flunking the gauntlet. Either she gives up on her dream or her friend. For Hadley, there’s only once choice.
I loved the Beginner’s Guide to Necromancy series. They are all on Kindle Unlimited as well as this new series, The Potentate of Atlanta. It is with some characters from the original series. Hadley, ie. Amelie, is now living in Atlanta training to be the POA.
I thought perhaps the previous book, Moment of Truth was the final in the series. Badge of Honor does have a description as an epilogue. I am so happy to have more with lots of favorite characters and learning more secret bits of information about this world.
To become Potentate, Hadley has to “run” the gauntlet which is an obstacle course of sorts. It is to show she can handle different issues as POA. We don’t learn much about it until the end. There are plenty of real life obstacles because someone doesn’t want her to be POA; they want their own hand picked puppet.
So people are kidnapped to force Hadley, to do what they want. Hadley is also busy planning her wedding on the side. I was on edge hoping everything would work out. I loved seeing all the support for Hadley from multiple supernatural factions in the city. Linus was on hand for the actual “run,” as the current POA. Hadley did a great job of investigating the problems and handling them. Badge of Honor was an uplifting, exciting adventure.
Rebecca Mitchell is Grier for me and also Linus. I have adjusted to her as Hadley also. She performs male and female voices well. However, all the female voices are quite similar and the male voices are mostly alike also. I listened at my usual 1.5x speed.
