Review of Hell Hound by Kaylie Austen

This is the story of Selene a girl born into the higher ranks of her society and from birth expected to rise to be part of the ruling body.  Selene however wants more and is attracted to a man who can show her life outside of her protected world.  Just as Selene is settling into her new role an unexpected tragedy strikes and changes everything she thinks she knows and affects everyone she loves.

I enjoyed this story, you get settled into the fantasy world without to much preamble, whilst it is mainly a fantasy novel it has a strong element of a murder mystery to it that did keep me guessing.  Selene is quite likable although you would initially think her to be a bit clueless she ends up being very resourceful and quite ruthless when needed. This book is written to be suitable for young adults however from time to time I found I had trouble keeping track of who was who especially when it came to the transference of powers after death so I'm not sure how a younger person would find it.

Overall I would give this 4 out of 5 stars
