Vigilare: Hell Hound by Brooklyn James

From Amazon - Book #2 in the Vigilare series. A red hue emerges, where once it was only emerald green! Now accepting of her position, Vigilare is propelled into a twist on Greek Mythology's Cerberus-Hell Hound-a rival Vigilare with fire capabilities. ETNA harbored her blood. Have they created a monster they cannot control? Along with her motley crew, the dashing Detective Tony Gronkowski, wily hematologist Dr. Godfrey and suspicious Emily Truly, Vigilare comes face to face with her past in the form of the hellish one. As the city of New Orleans and its Gambini mafia family are under siege with Vigilare drones, the power hungry Emily wastes no time in solidifying her place in the ranks when she exposes Vigilare to the menacing Hell Hound. Newcomer, Maxim Kiesel, the steel blue-eyed prodigy graced with icy powers may very well be the antidote, or the ultimate traitor. Will Vigilare give up her role, sacrificing her immortality to stop Hell Hound? The second in a trilogy, Vigilare: Hell Hound-when power is given, the true testament of one's character will rise.

I read the first book in this series, Vigilare, and thought it to be really good.  But the second book, Vigilare: Hell Hound really tops it! The characters are driven and the addition of Maxim and the hell hound makes for some really exciting reading.  The book has changed it's setting this time from Vanguard to the Vigilare compound and the Big Easy.  I really liked the world-building in the compound, seeing how Vigilares are trained. 

So the Hellhound is uncontrollable, but they try to do it anyway.  The Vigilare will have to sacrifice something to do so though. What ensues is plot twists, action packed sequences, superb character development and what you end up with is something sexy, gritty and unputdownable! I just loved everything about this book, even the surprising moments. I definitely can't wait for the third book in this series.  There's something for everyone - paranormal, urban fantasy, suspense, romance, science and more! Put this series on your wishlist!!

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
