Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Just the ticket for the dog days of summer.”—Monsters and Critics
Canines get a bad name in this quartet of original novellas about hell-raising hellhounds by four first-rate dark fantasy authors. This fearsome menagerie includes a three-headed dog, Lucifer's fierce four-legged protectors, and a seeing-eye hellhound. A trade paperback original with a bite.
Publishers Weekly
Four well-known fantasy writers bring magical dogs into the plots of otherwise standard paranormal novellas. Harris's urban fantasy, “The Britlingens Go to Hell,” pits bodyguards Batanya and Clovache against demons, wolfwomen and two hellhounds guarding some unusual prisoners. In Singh's paranormal romance, “Angels' Judgment,” vampire trackers Sara and Deacon must discover who is murdering vampires; one suspect owns a hellhound. In Andrews's sexy “Magic Mourns,” Andrea, a knight who helps people with magic problems, links with a shape-shifter to find a stolen corpse, but first they must get by a three-headed dog. In Brook's page-turning romance “Blind Spot,” Maggie Wren, CIA operative turned vampire's personal assistant, teams up with a hellhound to find her boss's kidnapped niece. Only the most obsessive dog fanciers will be really enthralled by the passing mentions of canines. (Sept.)

Nalini Singh "Angel's Judgment" This novella is from Nalini's Guild Hunter series. It follows Sara, the director of the guild before she became director and was a hunter. Sara and the Slayer, Deacon (slayers are Guild's internal police for rogue hunters) hunt down a suspected rogue hunter who has been performing unsanctioned vampire executions. This story was fantastic! It pretty much had it all; action, suspense, delectable sexual tension, mystery and the storyline was superb! This novella was exhilarating, impressively done and complete. It got me all hyped up to read the next Guild Hunter's novel, Archangel's Kiss due out 2/10/2010. This novella turned out to be my favorite story out of this anthology. 5+/5 Ilona Andrews "Magic Mourns" This novella is from the Kate Daniel's series. It focus's on Andrea, Kate's best friend. The story seems to pick up shortly after where Magic Strike's leaves off. I've been waiting on this novella for a long time, after getting just a tease of Andrea and Raphael's budding relationship. They are both hot-headed and at times volatile. Andrea and Raphael hunt down a necromancer who has stolen the dead body of Aunt B's mate (Aunt B is Raphael's mother and also the werehyena alpha), and finally hash out their issues. Unfortunately it's not at an opportune time, since they're being chased by a hellhound. It's so refreshing to see the male and female share the alpha/beta role, as oppose to the usual were story where the female only has value because of her mate's stature. This story was exciting, complete and well done. I also look forward to reading the next book in the Kate Daniels series Magic Bleeds due out 6/2010. 5/5 Meljean Brook "Blind Spot" I haven't read Meljean's Guardian series and have been on the fence about it for some time. This novella was easy to follow even though I am not familiar with the series. Maggie, a personal body guard and a hellhound named Sir Pup, help Geoff, Maggie's employer's nephew in rescuing Geoff's sister, Katherine who has been kidnapped. After enjoying this novella tremendously, I will definitely be picking up her Guardians series. This story was interesting, exciting and smoothly done. 5/5 Charlaine Harris "Britlingens Go to Hell" I've read several short stories by Charlaine and never really enjoy her novellas, however, I did find this novella the most enjoyable of the short stories I've read in the past from her. Two body guards are hired to guard a thief through his trip through hell, to steal back one of Lucifer's valuable treasures. This story felt a bit choppy. The storyline had great potential but fell a bit short of feeling complete. 3/5 This anthology was a success in my opinion. All stories kept to the hellhound theme and had a fun, humorous feel to them.

I read the first 3 chapters in the first story and found it weird and cunfusing i personally would not get this book:(:(

Each story held true to the books title and it was great that each author had their own original hound within their story. I have to say that Deacon and Sarah's story was my favorite of them all. It was the most complete and satisfying in what I look for in even a short story. My favorite hellhound (no contest) is Sir Pup. What a hound! Best I've ever encountered in all I've read that held a hound of hell within. He was so versatile, humorous and laid back for a hound of hell. I've read only from Charlaine Harris before (whom I am a fan of). But this helped me discover 3 new authors. One in which I'm extremely curious of the rest of her works (Nalini Singh).

please tell me why the ebook price is 12.99 when it's a paperback that starts out @ 7.99. I thought we were supposed to save money on books if we boughta nook not get overcharged!

I really like this group of short stories. If you like Charlaine Harris, Sookie Stackhouse books you should like the rest of the stories
bluedog More than 1 year ago
Sorry, I was disappointed in these stories. I was looking for more interaction with the hounds and not so much on the heavy romance. I'm really tired reading about the women drooling over abs, tight rears, etc. I know I'm in the minority, but I'll be looking for stories with more gal action and not in the bedroom.

Must Love Hellhounds was interesting and each novella featured a hellhound in someway. I have previously read Angel’s Judgement in Angels’ Flight and I re-read Magic Mourns. The Britlingens Go to Hell and Blind Spot where new novellas for me. I like to pick up these type of books from the library. They give you a chance to try new authors and find new series to read. I enjoyed this anthology. The Britlingens Go to Hell by Charlaine Harris - Rated: 3 Stars Angels’ Judgement (Guild Hunter #0.5) by Nalini Singh - Rated: 5 Stars Magic Mourns (Kate Daniels #3.5) by Ilona Andrews - Rated: 5 Stars Blind Spot (The Guardians #5.5) by Meljean Brook - Rated: 4 Stars

As usual with these anthologies, I usually buy the book because of one author. In this case, it was MeljeanBrook. It was fun to see Maggie and Geoff together, and I enjoy anytime I get to read about Sir Pup. What a great secondary character.
