The spice rating is in regards to the type of sexual content within the book. Below is a helpful guide (courtesy of Georgia C Leigh)

1= YA romantic, making out, MAYBE a closed door.
2= some on page foreplay and nudity but mostly fade to black.
3= open door, on page vanilla sex.
4= on page sex – hot or with kink.
5= erotica.

“Possessions from a myriad of entities, mad warlocks who just won’t stay dead, and creatures that conjure images of John Carpenter’s The Thing…that’s just to name a few of the surprises waiting here. It reads smooth, still, and the horror and action are taken up to an even higher level. Just when you think that a switch to another character means the tempo will slow, it only proves that it’s getting its speed up to the rest of events. We learn more about characters from the first book, and I appreciate the greater definition it gives them.”
– Jason Jay Harrington, an Amazon review.
Awaken Something Ancient Within

One lays dying, one just lost their beloved, and the third finds themselves lost amidst rogues and wretches. Times have grown grim as the grave as the blight descends on Lancastle and House Lanier. But ghouls and lichlords are just the beginning of the horrors to come. As something far more sinister than the dead lurks beyond the devouring dark, but will the royal nothings survive long enough to stand and fight against it?

They Once Had Names is the second book in the stunning splatter fantasy series The Giftborn Chronicles, from Drew Bailey.
