Book Details Hellbent Author: I’m glad that Priest kept Raylene’s dark side, sorta. A lot happened, and while it built up to a good follow, I’m sad to realize that there won’t be a book three in this series. Things happen out of the blue, characters behave in ways that don’t make any sense.

Hellbent by Cherie Priest book review

Retrieved 19 May I enjoyed the ccherie anyway, it just didn’t hold my interest the same as Bloodshot. The whole thing was childish and not entertaining.

Mark is a Day Boy. The first half or so is well paced, but the latter half contributes to the skin-deep feeling I got from helllbent book, as a lot of stuff happens. A girl could do a lot worse for a partner than an ass-kicking drag queen—right?

This review was originally published at Vampire Book Club. The cheerie time they meet Elizabeth the witch throws her from the roof of a mission.

My only problem with the two books is Raylene’s narrative hellbrnt. As with the first book, although the drama extends from Ian, he’s almost entirely in the background and Raylene goes gallivanting off on multi-state hijinks with Adrian still described with his drag queen alter ego even though that too is barely a factor and I am super disappointed that Priest never went into this side of his character more than as window dressing.


Hellbent (Cheshire Red Reports, #2) by Cherie Priest

Now this hobby has burgeoned into quite the popular pastime — though as with any field, the influx of trend-surfing amateurs tends to cause problems for the old pros. That would suck because Raylene and her crew of off-kilter friends are delightful cherif always seem to have the most interesting adventures in Urban Fantasy.


What humor there is simply recycled from the first volume. There are worse things in this world than al-Qaeda and North Korea, Zach. My other problem was that the resolution to the chwrie was heavily hinted at in the middle of the book, which made the ending quite predictable.

I think what makes these books so enjoyable is the mixture of humor and action. This book is not dark but rather light and fun. I look forward to reading the next book in the series whenever it becomes available, and thank Netgalley and the publisher for allowing me access to this book before it is to be released. This duology is about a female vampire thief. The pacing also throws me off in this novel. Hellbent ups the ante by introducing some more, and it occurred to me that Cherie Priest has done an awesome job of avoiding obvious stereotypes by treating her offbeat characters like normal people.

There were some mean bastards who were very nice to thier pets. I had a blast reading Hellbent.
