Mary Persephone Hail
Hail—well that speaks for itself.
Her name is painful to think about. Mary, his newfound daughter, isn’t a wished-for child. Persephone, though? Yeah, destruction is a fitting description. And Hail? Yeah, that’s just the final f-you.
The moment that her mother drops her off on his doorstep, Dante’s hell becomes complete.
Or so he thinks.
What can make life worse after losing one’s wife and kids, you ask? Here’s what: being given a baby that depends on him for her survival. Finding out that the baby’s mother is dying of brain cancer, and has a husband that he never knew about. A husband that Dante knows in the marrow of his bones is trying to kill her just as surely as the cancer eating her brain.
Dante’s a bad person. He’s done some not so nice things, and now he’s being punished for his misdeeds. Karma is finally catching up to him.
This child that he’s been stuck with is of his flesh and bone. This child is his salvation. This child is the final nail in the coffin of his wife and daughters’ too short lives.
He doesn’t want this child.
But this child will save him whether he wants her to or not.
With the help of a friend—yes, a woman friend—Dante finds his way back to life. But what he finds when he gets back isn’t the same life that he left behind. Turns out, he has to start living a new one. One where he's suddenly having feelings for a friend that helped him get through some tough times, and loving a daughter that won’t let him quit.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.5 Review by Kristie K
Another captivating and enthralling Hail brother gets under your skin in Hail Mary, a heartbreaking and beautifully seductive tale in the Hail saga…
Dante Hail knows what hell looks like…he’s lived it for the past two years. You think you understand the depths of hell? You ain’t seen nothing… After losing his wife and two beautiful girls in a senseless car accident, Dante has traveled hell’s highway with nothing but the sharp, jagged edges of his shattered heart to keep him company. The pain and devastation rule his world, take over his soul, and force him to withdraw from everything and everyone he ever knew. Drowning in his own pool of misery, Dante gets the shock of his life…and finds his salvation in the form of a beautiful blonde haired angel that has his eyes. The day that Mary Persephone Hail shows up on his doorstep is both the beginning and the end of Dante Hail. With a deathbed promise, destructive secrets, and hidden dangers surfacing with the dawn of every new day, Dante steps out and up into what could be his final destruction…or his salvation.
Hot dayum! Lani Lynn Vale has done it again! Hail Mary is the sixth installment of the amazing Hail Raisers series. Following the heartbreaking story of Dante Hail, Ms. Vale takes us on a soul searing journey through the devastating loss of his family…and the beautiful souls that pull his phoenix out of the ashes. An emotional journey from start to finish, Hail Mary will make you laugh, cry, scream, sweat, cringe, and smile. Ms. Vale has a tremendous talent for storytelling, and brings the characters and story to life with her words. A devastating and unique plot and storyline is only the beginning. Throw in the incredible characters, heartwarming relationships, broken pasts, and unwavering love of family, and you have a true winner. Every new installment I read, I don’t think Ms. Vale can top what she’s already given us…but she does it. Every. Time.
Fabulous storyline. Lani made Dante come to life! You could feel the pain he had to work through. Cobie’s unique life and circumstances helped her deal with him and the whole situation. The suffering she had been through in her life and was going through I can’t even imagine. Worth losing sleep over last night! Going to start my reread this evening. Gobbled it up so fast, now I have to go back and savor every word. After this, Lani has me breathless waiting on Rafe’s story.
A phenomenal read!!
This book was AMAZING!! It had the perfect amount of suspense and angst, and had me on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen next.
My heart broke for Dante and the pain of his past. Cobie was perfect for him, even when he was being a bit of a douche.
This book was phenomenal, and I would definitely recommend it!!!
