Must Love Hellhounds by Charlaine Harris, Nalini Singh, Meljean Brook, Ilona Andrews

From New York Times bestselling authors Charlaine Harris, Nalini Singh, Ilona Andrews, and Meljean Brook come four paranormal tales of man’s worst friend...

Follow paranormal bodyguards Clovache and Batanya into Lucifer’s realm, where they encounter his fearsome four-legged pets, in Charlaine Harris’s “The Britlingens Go to Hell.” Seek out a traitor in the midst of a guild of non-lethal vampire trackers, one that intends to eradicate the entire species of bloodsuckers, in Nalini Singh’s “Angels’ Judgment.” Find out why the giant three-headed dog that guards the gates of Hades has left the underworld for the real world—and whose scent he’s following—in Ilona Andrews’s “Magic Mourns.” Embark on a perilous search for the kidnapped niece of a powerful vampire alongside her blind—and damn sexy—companion and a hellhound in Meljean Brook’s “Blind Spot.”

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.

The Britlingens Go To Hell is a short story by popular American author, Charlaine Harris. Paranormal bodyguards, Batanya and Clovache are hired to accompany their client into a dangerous situation for the retrieval of an item left behind. Only once the paperwork is signed do they learn they are going to Hell, that their client is a thief (with some rather unusual attributes) and that said item actually belongs to Lucifer. This is a tale that manages to include Hellhounds, Narcissus and Amelia Earhart. It is billed as Sookie Stackhouse 9.2, but is better described as a story set in the Sookieverse, as Sookie herself never makes an appearance. Clever and funny.

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).

I really like this group of short stories. If you like Charlaine Harris, Sookie Stackhouse books you should like the rest of the stories

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.

This is an anthology with both authors I have read and authors I haven't read. They also seem part of different series, which I haven't read as well. And as usual they vary in enjoyment for me so I don't feel comfortable giving them a blanket star. . The, professional and already paid for, summary is a good summation of the different stories. The first 2 in the book (C.H. and N.S.) I would give 3 stars to. For those reading the respective series it may hit them differently. Magic Mourns, by Ilona Andrews, was very good and seemed a 3+ at least (if not a bit higher). My favorite of the books was an author I have not read at all, Meljean Brook. Her Blind Spot story was well written and felt total complete and not like a short at all. I would love to read more about the H and h in the story, as well as some of the supporting characters. The hellhound here was also hands down my favorite and I loved how he was made more integral to the story than the others.

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.
