Maybe you should just stay in Seattle, Ms. The thing that makes this annoying is that in many cases it does seem accidental, and then priesst novels are not so much about the plot as they are about ensuring that everyone’s favorite peripheral character gets a look-in. The Cheshire Red reports were originally only commissioned as a two book series.

While this didn’t end on a cliff-hanger, Priest was careful to include several hooks for pries volumes, which I will pounce on.

And the fast paced action is reduced to a limp road trip that does little to excite or interest. I’m sure it would still be fun in print but Natalie Ross really heklbent it to another level. And she has no qualms about using those bones to take down buildings.

But for Aeriel, whom he kidnaps to serve his The main character of Raylene is also just fantastic, a pries personality that mixes a neurotic OCD with intelligence, tough and charming in equal measure with a dry wit and kind of wisdom that only living for over a century will actually achieve. This time however she is up against a very powerful Witch and must team up with x-Navy SEAL and fabulous drag queen Adrian deJesus; juggling two incredibly tricky assignments without losing control of either.

This book doesn’t make me swear off Priest, and I will get the next one.

I can also complain loudly about nothing happening. My money was on bats. I enjoyed the book, but I would have liked more continuity and cohesion in the overall story arcs.

She is often mistaken for a man since international intelligence officials who have been hunted her for years; find it hard to believe that a woman could actually be such an accomplished thief, or as she calls herself–acquisitions specialist. The problem was that the book’s plot was lacking and the action very much subdued, particularly when compared with Bloodshot.

In reading Hellbent, I was able to finally put some of my feelings about the series into words.

Paperbackpages. The novel itself serves more as a bridge novel to what hellbenh to come, and I’m still looking forward to reading more in the series now that the pieces are in their respective places.

But, based on the backstory that gets dropped, I’m wondering if the first book was darker. And for the record, just because someone rescues a kitten doesn’t mean she is a big old good hearted softee who wouldn’t really hurt a fly.

This one seems chattier than cheire first, which is both a good and a bad thing. Although she prefers to work alone, she acquires a group of misfits who join her in her adventures. Following the events of Bloodshot, master vampire thief Raylene Pendle finds herself not quite the loner she once was.

Ian was experimented on by the government and lost his eye sight permanently. However, soon after that, the book took a seriously wrong turn and ended up being pretty boring. The humour goes from priiest to juvenile with the endless penis jokes that grated on my last nerve.

Hellbent, a book by Cherie Priest | Book review

Anno Dracula series Kim Newman 9. One of my favorite scenes is at the beginning of chapter 7, where Adrian is struggling to get the hotel remote to work and then is excited to discover that Myth Busters is on. Sadly, this may be the last of the Cheshire Red books, since they don’t seem to have found the big readership numbers the publisher was hoping for.

So as I was saying before I was so rudely interrupted Action-wise, which was one of the main draws of the first book and what many had praised Bloodshot for, was also scant. Why should you read this book?

Books by Cherie Priest. The book is flat, it misses the charm, the humor, the sparkle of the first and no, I’m not refering hellbebt Adrian’s throng is gone. After the events of Bloodshotwe see Raylene in a more domestic setting living what can be construed as a family life.


I still love Adrian so much.
