Book Release Promo & Review: Hellhound: Dogs of War (Hellhound Series #2) by Rue Volley

Please join us as the Rue Volley releases book two of her Hellhound series, Hellhound: Dogs of War.
Rue is always striving to bring her fans the freshest, hottest, plot-driven erotica, which has made her an Amazon International Bestselling Erotica Author. Dogs of War picks up right where Hellhound left off and drags the reader relentlessly through hell, literally.



This is Book #2 in the Hellhound series. 

In 'Dogs of War' we rejoin Halo Bay and the Hellhounds as they adjust to an unexpected loss. Weakened and feeling as if they may be losing the battle, the Hellhounds reach out to the most unlikely of creatures...that of the vampires. At Ari's insistence, two very powerful vampires are called upon to help them. Hunter, who has a sordid past with Dorin and Vanessa, Queen of the vampires and daughter to Dracula himself. As they struggle to solidify their new alliance, Halo finds she has to barter with the only thing she truly owns. Herself. This is a deal that Lucifer is eager to seal and, blinded by love, Halo may be stepping into a plan set in motion centuries before she even existed. Will she restore the balance between Heaven and Hell? Or will be become the final seal? 

My Review:

Hellhound: Dogs of War (Hellhound, #2)Hellhound: Dogs of War by Rue Volley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.

This is the second book in the Hellhound series. I really enjoyed this novella!

Halo Bay is a character that I liked from the first book. She had horrible judgement in men when she was alive, but now she is a Hellhound (a type of guardian to keep the demons from getting out of hand in the human world). She is feisty and quite adept at kicking demon butt. However, she is also hunted by her nemesis, Lucifer, who desires her.

I began to read this book on the bus, going home from work, and I didn't want to put it down! The story introduces some new characters. Hunter and Vanessa are vampires who have been brought in to help the Hellhounds after the demise of Dorin, and the loss of Gunner to Hell. I wasn't sure what these two were to each other (lovers or friend siblings (as they weren't blood related)), as they constantly bickered. Unfortunately, I couldn't feel anything for these characters, although I did like Hunter more than Vanessa. They didn't seem to be as lifelike as Halo, Gunner or even Lucifer. Nevertheless, they brought a new dimension to the story. The story is told from several points of view, but mainly through Halo's eyes. I liked the way the story unfolded, and there were a few twists that I didn't see coming. However, there was a scene that I had my suspicions about, and the end of the story confirmed what I thought. I am now looking forward to reading the next part of the story as soon as it is released!

Rue Volley has written a wonderfully steamy erotic romance series that had more heat than the fires of Hell! Her characters are interesting and are very likable. I love her fast paced writing style, which flowed beautifully!

I do not recommend this book to readers under 18 due to scenes of an explicit sexual nature and the use of foul language. However, I recommend this book if you love HOT steamy romances (paranormal or contemporary), with a dark fantasy twist. - Lynn Worton

What reviewers are saying about Hellhound: Dogs of War

"Written in true Rue Fashion. Raw, Fresh and Real."

"...leaves you gasping for air and fanning yourself."

"...deliciously lickable men and toe-curling sex."

"Only Rue Volley could make me want to bite Lucifer."

From Rue:
The inspiration for HELLHOUND was simple. It is a culmination of all of my favorite things wrapped up into one. I have a deep love for history so adding in Vikings and Romans was so much fun to do. I am also fascinated with Heaven and Hell and what true dynamic there is between the two of them, so in this story I explore that as well. I also love vampires and anything paranormal in nature. Taking something like the idea of a HELLHOUND and making it my own was a pleasure to do and the best part about being a writer of fiction. I also LOVE writing EROTICA, mainly because there is no box you have to stay in and I can play as hard as I like to. No pun intended. wink

Excerpt from the book:

I fell to my side as I saw feet coming towards me. Black booted ones. Strong arms scooped me up, a chest to lean against. I listened to a heart beating, thump, thump, thump, its rhythm making me feel at ease. Was it a policeman? A neighbor? Or perhaps an EMT? I did not know. I closed my eyes as my heart slowed and when I woke up again I was laying on a sandy shoreline, black sky overhead with lighting crackling through it like thin spidery fingers. I pushed myself up, I then realized I felt no pain. I looked down and the blood was gone, as well as the deep cut to my stomach. I ran my fingers over the smooth skin on my stomach for a minute and then breathed out, white smoke rising up in the chilled air. Then I slowly looked up as lightning lit up the sky again and a million shadows stared me down, standing out in front of me like a crowd at a concert. They slowly started to approach me and I took one step back, only to find myself teetering on the edge of a cliff now. I caught my balance and looked down. I had no idea where the water went to but my new concern was that of NOT falling.
