Hellhound Shifters #2
Genre: Urban Fantasy, Series
Life really loves to pull the rug out from under you.
Who would have thought things would take this weird turn? There was me thinking everything would be by the book. Do my job as a Protector, keep Midgrove City safe. Be a good hellhound shifter.
How wrong I was!
There are so many pieces to this puzzle, with nowhere to slot them in. But I’ve got to keep on. Somewhere in the shadows is the truth. I just need to find the light to blast it out.
There’s a storm coming…
What happened to the fun, carefree days of gaming and bingeing my favourite Sci-Fi TV show?
Ha! Like a hellhound’s life is ever carefree!
Dream on, Draven!
Hellstorm is the second volume in an Urban Fantasy series packed with action, adventure, and slow-burn MM Ménage Romance.
This book is not a standalone.
This story picks up from when the last one stopped, continues the action at a fast pace and then finishes on another cliffhanger. I loved how this 2nd book advanced the plot, grew the characters, and threw in several curveballs for good measure. I’m hanging out for the 3rd book now to find out what happens next!
I always know I’m going to get fabulous worldbuilding and quirky characters when I read a book by this author. I like how he takes what seems like our world on the surface and then shakes it up with supernatural entities like hellhounds, hellspawn, and alchemy.
I particularly liked the twists in this plot, and how Lyle grows in this story. He’s having a few issues coming into his powers but when he does he’ll be a force to be reckoned with. Poor guy goes through a lot, and I liked how, despite that, he manages to come out the other side with his wonderfully flirty and sweet nature intact. He’s definitely one of the good guys.
I love Simon, and I’m looking forward to him playing a bigger part as the series progresses. He totally rocks, and I like his and Lyle’s friendship.
Poor Micah gets a raw deal too. The author is basically being mean to everyone and I love it. That scene where he realises the truth of what’s going on is raw and emotional. Love it. Draven’s growing a few clues about how everyone fits together too. I love how quirky he is, with his obsession with gaming and the X Files. I like his strong ties to his brothers, and his determination to protect the people he cares about. His axe is a wonderful character in her own right, and her TV viewing preference is a great touch.
I love how these characters’ world view is changing rapidly into something else entirely, and I’m looking forward to see where the author takes them next.
5 out of 5 stars.
