Novel by Lou Yardley
Hellhound, by Lou Yardley, is not like your usual werewolf tale. There's a a sort of chaotic organization that reminded me of the Underworld movie series. Except this book carried a theme that made you remember monsters aren't restricted to the night time. Hellhound carried a backstory that brought you into the current situation, providing all the information you needed to know!
This story isn't about one person and their trials to the end. It's about a huge conspiracy amongst the werewolves. You think it's about a young man, down on his luck, looking for a job. You think it's about a girl who sees something shady activity in a pub trying to be a Good Samaritan. NO. You may also think it's about a collective, called The Six, doing their best to keep a tight reign on a group of wildlings out to create names for themselves... No. You could assume a great deal with Hellhounds. I won't say what it's truly about, but I can tell you that it's a fun ride and right before you get to the huge fight at the end, you understand that there's more to come!
The story is great and I'm a fan of the author. The story went in the right direction, by going in all sorts of directions- but that's what kept me. The story is rich and original in the origin of things too! I'd never have imagined the true beginning of werewolves were from ***NO SPOILERS***. Sorry folks; you'll have to read the book. Just know that it's pretty cool.
The only thing I'd have to say was a bit off for me (and not in a terrible way) was the story's pretty wordy. There were a few times where I though "Huh... that could have been said differently." No big because it's the author's voice and if that's how it was supposed to have been brought across- who am I to really judge. It drew things out a bit, but not enough for me to skip ahead to what was coming.
I enjoyed Hellhound and I think you will too. Yardley also has two other books I'm thrilled for. I read the first one, but I'll be rereading it again, as a refresher before reading the follow-up tale. Check out her books, her website and even her social media while I move on to the next read. Cheers!
