Her new husband, Rook, is scheming again, and this time his plans are invading her dreams.

Lie Down with Dogs is book three in the Black Dog series by Hailey Edwards.
I enjoyed Lie Down with Dogs. I could not put it down, but it’s not the strongest novel in the series. Theirry is trying to come to terms with the events that happened in the last book Heir of the Dog.
The novel was a steady pace to read, entertaining, but not much happens until after the 50% mark and the author did give the reader a few surprises at the end that I did not see coming. As for the plot development I felt that their was not much in this area, nor character growth or growing up on Thierry’s part. She does a lot of self pitying throughout the novel. I’m married to a man I don’t love, I have to give up my life to be Queen of the Fae, and oh no I broke Shaw. Is she doing anything to change her situations? Nope. It got old fast all the doubting, woe is me, and I love Shaw, but I broke him stuff.
I’m still not sold on the guys in Thierry’s life. I just don’t get what she sees in either of them and Shaw is the one she loves. Neither guy in her life seems to care for her. They only seem to want her for what she can give them. Though the author did try to make Shaw out to be a bit more likable, but I still feel that Thierry needs to dump them both.
Lie Down with Dogs was a good story, but not exceptional. Thierry seemed less than what she has been in the other novels. I hope the final book meets my expectations and accomplishes what needs to get done in this series.
If you have not tried this new urban fantasy series Black Dog, I recommend giving it a try.
