Dusty Pages Review: Hellhound Bound

It’s a helluva job, but someone has to do it, and for Rhune, it’s a small price to pay for his past sins. He’s taken a new name and a somewhat normal life. Except at night, when he transforms into a hellhound to take souls to Gehenna, the City of the Dead, for purgatories legions to deliver them to Hell where they belong. For fifteen centuries he’s lived in happy solitude, until a paralegal, with the most amazing eyes, rear ends him in the small town of Rio Morden. He’s seen those eyes before, but it’s been years since the last time. Now she’s all grown up and involved in a murder trial that has its sights set on her becoming its next victim. What’s a hellhound to do? Surely not fall in love—and certainly not with a Dreamwalker.

Mix in a diabolical lawyer and his lover, some Voodoo magic, and it’s a recipe for mayhem and murder. Can Rhune keep Hanna safe, or is she destined to be Hellhound Bound?

I really enjoyed this book. The characters were engaging and the world around them filled with the realism I like in a story of this kind.

Rhune was destined to be a hero despite the quiet isolated life he tried to live. Hanna needed him but turned out to be stronger than even she knew. The mythos was on par with what I like too, a little dark and scary. I think there could be more here if the author so desired, the door is open for a sequel.

The only thing that I got a little confused on was why Hanna was targeted. I understand she was working on a high profile murder case but unless I missed it, there wasn't anything other than the murderers arrogance that justified it. I was expecting her to have stumbled onto a piece of evidence or had some notable suspicions.

I would definitely read a sequel.

I give it
