Savannah has fallen to the vampires, and it’s up to Grier to take out their leader, Gaspard Lacroix, and restore peace. Lacroix might be more powerful and immune to her magic, but she’s got a plan. Too bad it’s got holes big enough for a new threat to waltz through while the city is on her knees.

Now Grier must risk her very soul if she hopes to slay her enemies and prevent her world from going up in flames. But salvation comes at a steep price, and she’s not the only one who will pay. The cost just might break her, and the man who owns her heart.

I am so sad to be writing this review, because it means I have read the last book of a much enjoyed series.

I have loved Grier since the opening chapter of HOW TO SAVE AN UNDEAD LIFE. There is just something about her that pulls you in and makes you root for her no matter what situation she finds herself in.

HOW TO WAKE AN UNDEAD CITY is the final showdown for Grier and her allies. They must save their city from her grandfather and his people. We get answers to questions that we have had since day one, and we see a glimpse of the future for not only Grier and Linus but some of our other favorite characters as well.

There have been quite a few secondary characters that I have loved and hated and hated to love throughout the series. I couldn't imagine Grier without any of them and it was great seeing them all come together in UNDEAD CITY.

The Beginner's Guide series was awesome. I loved every minute of reading it. I will miss Grier and Linus being the main characters because I think they still have so much story left to explore, but I'm excited to see what Hailey Edwards does with the spin-off.

I gave it 5/5 stars
