Sorrow’s Song is the ninth book in Keri Arthur’s Lizzie Grace series. Lizzie is a witch and a psychic who was on the run for thirteen years from her powerful magical family after they blamed her for her sister’s death, and trapped her in an unwanted marriage. However, she is not alone; she has her best friend and familiar Belle. The pair now run a tea and psychic consulting business on a werewolf reservation in Australia.

Thankfully, Lizzie and Belle no longer have to hide as the situation with her family came to a head and was mostly resolved in a previous book. Lizzie still has to testify against her father. In this book, Lizzie is also dealing with her recent break-up with Reservation Ranger Aiden O’Connor. She ended the relationship because she knew it was only going to lead to heartache as Aiden would in the end choose his pack over her. Making the break up even harder, she has to see him constantly now that she is the Deputy Reservation Witch.

The pair are brought together in Sorrow’s Song when a body is found that appears to be that of an accidental drowning victim, but something just doesn’t feel right. They soon discover that another supernatural baddie is responsible and it seems to be targeting werewolves, or more specifically the O’Connor pack, with a haunting song that leads them to a watery death. Lizzie fears that her grief has called this thing here. And if that wasn’t enough, there is another seemingly unconnected series of crimes where the criminal is doing horrific things to its victims.

I love everything about this series! First off, it is my favorite pairing of mystery and urban fantasy. Secondly, the cast of characters are well developed and ones that you love spending time with—from Lizzie’s familiar Belle, to her cousin Monty, to the other witches on the reservation Eli and Ashworth, to the werewolves, and of course Lizzie herself. I am currently a little annoyed with Aiden, but really hoping things end up working out for him and Lizzie despite the odds against it. I also love the Australian setting and the café! Reading about their delicious desserts makes my mouth water. I highly recommend this series, but be sure to start with book one, Blood Kissed. You can find a list of all of Keri’s on her website. Sorrow’s Song will definitely be on my list of Best Books of 2022 and I can’t wait for the next one!
