Overview

The first installment in a fabulous dark urban fantasy series--think Kill Bill with demons and gangsters instead of martial arts--from the award-winning author of the Iron Codex trilogy and Vertigo comic Coffin Hill.

Ava has spent the last hundred years as a hellhound, the indentured servant of a reaper who hunts errant souls and sends them to Hell. When a human necromancer convinces her to steal her reaper's scythe, Ava incurs the wrath of the demon Lilith, her reaper's boss.

As punishment for her transgression, Lilith orders Ava to track down the last soul in her reaper's ledger . . . or die trying.

But after a hundred years of servitude, it's time for payback. And Hell hath no fury like an avenging Ava. . . .

This confusing hodgepodge of the damned—comprising hellhounds, shapeshifters, warlocks, vampires, demons, fallen angels, and two varieties of deadheads, among others—is an inauspicious start to the Hellhound Chronicles. The unnecessary clutter of characters gets in the way of the story and deflects the reader’s attention from the heroine, Ava, a hellhound. In both human and canine form, she collects souls of the damned for her employer, a particularly nasty reaper called Gary. Ava is a potentially sympathetic character, struggling to make sense of her previous life, chafing against the hellish abuse of her reaper, and dealing with the existential loneliness of the hell-bound. Had she not been forced to share the spotlight with a necromancing Russian mobster, an enfeebled fallen angel, and a 1,000-year-old demon, Ava’s strong presence might have been just enough to bring this book back from the dead. Even fans of Kittredge’s Iron Codex Trilogy will struggle with this one. (Oct.)
