    Hell¿s Gift is the second novel in the Save My Soul series, yet

    Hell’s Gift is the second novel in the Save My Soul series, yet a standalone story, just like the first. You can read my review of book one, Save My Soul, here. A completely original idea for a fantasy romance, this book is a huge accomplishment on so many levels.
    For a start, there’s a lot of story within those pages, and not one word of that is useless waffle. The action starts on page one and finishes with the last sentence. What made it more interesting for me was the frequent change of environment. Most of the action takes place in Hell, but it’s not the sort of Hell you would have imagined. I won’t tell you how it’s different, just trust that it is. Sometimes it’s better, often it’s worse, and the pain is not necessarily physical.
    Rhyan’s trials are imaginative, and the secondary plots developed enough to allow us a glimpse into the psyche of many of the demons and fallen angels that populate the upper classes of this incredibly rich world. There are minions and beasts, love and hate, fear and debauchery – you’ve really got to read it and see for yourself.
    Characterisation is one of K.S. Haigwood’s strongest points. Rhyan, a depressed guardian angel, is very well developed, his voice clear and easily identifiable throughout the story. You can understand his predicament – who doesn’t know the feeling of unrequited love? – and you can almost foresee his reactions. But. There’s always a but, with this author, because K.S. Haigwood can deliver enough twists and turns to turn a tornado on its head. Just as you think you’ve figured where the story is going next, she’s duped you again. Rhyan grows through his experiences and, in the background, you can see a few cracks beginning to appear in the personalities of secondary characters, too. Each one gets what they deserve, even if it’s just another chance to prove themselves.
    I loved the story and the idea behind it. Love conquers all is the message in many books, but you rarely see it as challenged and as humorised as here. Take this short dialogue, for example:

    “Which direction should I go?” I said to both Pogo and Malcolm.
    “North,” Pogo replied.
    “South,” Malcolm said.
    “West it is, then,” I said, and stepped out into the acid blizzard.

    The whole novel is littered with good chuckle moments, and even in the darkest hour, the thinnest hint of a silver lining is still visible among the clouds.
    I wholeheartedly recommend reading this book. Shock therapy for body and soul, delivered at a hundred miles an hour with the humor and charisma of a trendsetter, Hell’s Gift is certain to be hailed the new wonder-drug to cure all ills. No one is perfect, and this books shows you why you don’t have to be. Get ready to laugh, cry and most of all feel your way through this addictive story. Kristie Haigwood is a skilled sorceress of the fantasy world. Five very well-deserved stars for this effort.

    I can’t find the right words to tell you how great this book is. I mean, honestly, without providing any spoilers to the book, it is hard to define the greatness. I will not spoil Hell’s Gift for anyone. It is definitely a must read. So many emotions will consume you….many times I cried and many times I laughed. In the end, my heart was relieved that everything worked out almost perfect…You don’t want to miss out on this book. You won’t regret buying it. You will not be disappointed! I promise!!! I would rate it a 10 if I could but since 5 is the highest…it’s a HIGH 5!!!

    Hell's gift is a wild ride with Rhyan, the guardian angel from S

    Hell's gift is a wild ride with Rhyan, the guardian angel from Save My Soul. He's deeply depressed that his charge, Kendra, married her soul mate. He strikes out at everyone and as a punishment is sent to Hell. Here he finds his true love, Abbi. She is now the Princess Gluttony. The memories of their past life return and so does forgiveness and love. To save her he must escape from each of the seven sydes of Hell, but Lucifer won't let that happen. No one escapes Hell. There is so much danger and treachery. An old enemy, Murry, wants his revenge. He plans to harm Kendra and her family since Rhyan can no longer help. Thank goodness he gets assistance from his angelic friends, Malcolm and Josselyn. Lucifer's princes and princesses are compelling characters. I especially loved Thoros, the Prince of Lust. He finds love with Josselyn and wants her with him. Can he escape his demonic past? I couldn't put this book down. The danger and surprises never stop. The plot flows smoothly and introduces new characters that grab your attention. The author outdid herself! I wish I could find words to tell you what a wonderful book Hell's Gift is. This is a must read!

    I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.

    Wow. I just couldn't put this book down. Rhyan was my favorite character from Save My Soul, the first book in this series so I was glad to see him get a book of his own. Miserable since his charge chose to spend her life with her soulmate instead of him, Rhyan is striking out at everyone. But angels are people too, and the archangels have finally had enough and take a drastic step to bring him to his senses.

    Feeling sorry for himself and not in a mood to accept any sympathy or understanding from his friends and fellow guardian angels, Rhyan finds himself cast into Hell after making a few hate filled statements. Stripped of his angelic powers, he must complete a task in order to not just his own soul, but someone very special. His soulmate and wife.

    Making an ill-advised deal with Lucifer himself, Rhyan sets off to find his way out of Hell. Of course, since we're talking about Haigwood's universe here, nothing is as straightforward as you think. An old foe returns and help comes from unlikely quarters. Desperation definitely makes for strange bedfellows.

    If you liked Save My Soul, then you will definitely enjoy Hell's Gift. Have a seat and buckle up, because you're about to go on a wild ride. Oh please, let book three not be too far into the future.

    I was given this book by the author K.S. Haigwood for an honest review. This is book 2 of the Save My Soul series by the author.

    Rhyan has been sent out of Heaven  and into Hell in order to get himself together but what he finds in Hell is something he never expected to see again, his wife. Now he must deal with Lucifer and his minions in order to get his wife's soul back.

    This book got me hooked from the start and I couldn't put it down it was so good. Rhyan goes through so much and he risks his very soul for his wife in order to take her out of Hell and take her to Heaven with him. There is so many twists and turns for him and he tries to never give up and you just want to cheer for him all the way.

    The only part of the book I cringed at was what happened to Abigail at the hands of Lucifer when she was caught daydreaming about her newest minion, her husband. 

    This book is for mature readers only due to some of the sexual situations in the book. But all in all this is a very well written and great flowing book from start to finish for any mature paranormal lover.

    This is the 2nd book in the Save My Soul series.  After reading

    This is the 2nd book in the Save My Soul series.  After reading the first I just couldn’t wait to read the second.  Lucky for me it didn’t take long to get it.  This is another amazing story from K.S. Haigwood.  This time it’s Rhyan’s story.  As a guardian angel he is kicked out of heaven and sent to hell.  He soon finds that his soul mate is there and he must find a way to get them both out.
    You’ll laugh, you’ll hold your breath, and you’ll cheer.  The introduction of more and more characters gives you the impression that there will be plenty of more stories to come.  I can’t wait for the next installment.  This 2nd book is even better than the first and I highly recommend it as a must read.

    Must Read!

    Rarely do sequels come anywhere near being as good as the original, but I actually loved this one even more than the first. I loved the imagery as Hell was described, I loved the depth of each and every one of the characters, that just because you are an angel that doesn't mean that you are incapable of ever doing the wrong thing. Just as demons are also not the typical 1 dimensional forked tongue monsters. They all have their own goals, ambitions, and drive. Hard decisions are made on both sides. .. sometimes the only way out is a deal with the devil.

    Hell's Gift was even better than Save My Soul, the first book in this series. Now I have to admit, I didn't much like  Rhyan in Save My Soul. I wasn't to excited to learn that Hell's Gift was about him. This book though had me from the first chapter. I felt so bad for Rhyan! 
    If your looking for a new series about angels to read this is definatly one to get. I can not wait for the next book!

    Five star hell
    This is the second in the series and although I started this one and then went back and read the first one
    you don't gave to, the writer does an excellent job of playing catch up so you know who everyone is
    without too much trouble. Ryhan is a wonderful character a guardian angel who fell in love with his charge,
     I love Ryhan he is such a strong character knows right from wrong and will do it always to the best of his
    abilities, and his abilities are certainly tested in this book being thrown into hell is no picnic. Abigail is Rhyan's
    soulmate the fact that she happens to rule one of the domains of hell is not going to stop them, that is once
    she remembers, the character was a good offset to Rhyan and easily believable as what she had been through.
     Malcolm and Josselyn are angels and I love the way that they are so human still, real characters, as are the
    various demons in hell. This was a very well written and enjoyable read, I can't wait to read the next
    one in the series.

    Hell didn¿t have to  make sense, and I had already been through

    Hell didn’t have to  make sense, and I had already been through enough of it to know that it didn’t. – Rhyan, Guardian Angel Extraordinaire. :)


    Ms. Haigwood and I must have gone to the same Sunday school because her descriptions of hell are exactly the way I pictured them. And just as scary.
     I’d read Save My Soul and loved it, so I was excited to read this second book in the series, and wasn’t surprised that I loved it, but what did surprise me, was that it was even better than the first one. I found myself laughing at some of the Ms. Haigwood’s wit and cringing at some of the intense moments in the story as the Guardian Angel, Rhyan, makes his painstaking journey through the seven sydes (what KS.H, calls them) of hell.
     Rhyan, is cast out of heaven and sent to hell, but at first, he has no idea why. He soon finds out his soulmate, Abigail is in hell and he must free her soul, but in order to do that, he’s forced into making a deal with Lucifer himself.
    There are so many great things about this book, but what struck me most, was Kristie’s ability to write another unique story just as good, if not better than the first one, Save My Soul. This is the third book of Kristie’s I’ve read, and I want to say that her writing just keeps getting better and better with each one. 

    I must admit though, I was crushing on one of the side characters in Hell’s Gift, more than Rhyan, and that would be Thoros, the Prince of Lust. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this awesome series and I am hoping Thoros has a huge part in it. There was a part that had me questioning what had happened, but I won't say what it is since I wouldn't want to spoil anything.  And sometimes you just need to realize that it is always the writer's story, not the way the reader thinks it should be. Great job, Kristie.

    Decent.

    I found this through the author's Twitter feed, and agree with both of the recent reviews. I feel it is well edited, never deserving a one-star. I also feel that most paranormal romance is here b/c of Twilight's success. The problem with the genre isn't the popularity, but the fact that most entries don't measure up. I feel that's what we have here. Standard indie writing wrapped in a nifty cover.
    The author seems nice enough, but after reading her work it is obvious that her reviews are left by a small group of readers...who don't represent the majority. I would have given it 3 stars, but after seeing so many inflated 5 star reviews, two seems better.
    I encourage potential readers to give Wilde's Fire by Krystal Wade a look instead. I found IT to be everything the reviews claimed.
