“This was an action packed, fast paced ride…” ~ Under the Covers
Ava has spent the last one hundred years as an indentured servant to a reaper…as his hellhound. Her job is to find all the souls that try and skip out of the deal they’ve made and bring them back, kicking and screaming, and deliver their souls to her reaper. When she is convinced to steal her reapers scythe and kill him, she never expects it to actually work… and she never expected to earn the personal attention of her bosses boss, the demon Lillith. Lillith has a new soul for her to track down and the consequences of her failure are distinctly hellish.
Black Dog is the start of Caitlin Kittredge’s new Hellhound Chronicles, I have been a fan of hers for a while, I love her writing and her worlds which are dark and twisted; you get caught up and tangled in them before you know it. Black Dog I found was no different, it had her distinctive edge and I enjoyed every page of it.
If you want a dark urban fantasy book than this is definitely one that will capture your interest, it deals with heaven and hell, angels and demons all of whom are ruthless and brutal. This all blends into the world that Kittredge has created and has started to build up in this book. Like her Black London series, the world seems to be a dark underbelly of the mundane world where any normal good person would be chewed up and spat out, bloody and broken, if they made it out at all. And Ava the heroine of Black Dog is one of the creatures hunting in the dark.
Ava is the kind of heroine I like, tough with a smart mouth and a born survivor and although she is fully capable of unleashing savage violence, she has a twist of compassion in her that makes her likable. This book isn’t devoid of romance either, as long as you like your romance slightly complicated and with a guy with no compunction with torture and death, and luckily I do.
This was an action packed, fast paced ride and I can’t wait to read more. Caitlin Kittredge has created a world and characters dark and rich and I can’t wait for her to develop it further.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
