Blurb: The human and fey worlds plummet toward an ancient war. Enter two unlikely lovers, a myth, and a mad queen hell-bent on conquest and revenge. Fire Marshal Finn Hulain, tormented by the death of his best friend and an unrequited love, is tossed from the world he knows into the upside-down realm of the fey. Dr. Redmond Fall, psychiatrist to the deadliest criminals in the Unsee, awakes to find the brutal Queen May deposited within the walls of his hospital for a bit of therapy. While May would like to get over her daddy issues, it’s sometimes easier to bite off heads.
Hound, the epic finale to the Haffling trilogy, delves into the darkest reaches of the addictions we all carry. To save the worlds and themselves, Finn, Redmond, and even May must confront the ghosts of their past and the demons of their present. The clock is ticking. There are no second chances. Everything is on the line.
Review: I would advise reading this series in order as each book picks up where the last leaves off. In this installment May is back again but in two pieces. What’s scary is that she needs even more magical creatures to sustain her. Very gruesome in the way she obtains that energy.
I was a little leery of new characters being introduced but those feeling changed as the story progressed as each character had a role to play. Action, drama and mystery all play a part of this epic story of good versus evil.
Finn and Redmond fall in love amidst the battle plans and preparations. I love this series and am sad to see it end. I was entranced from beginning to end by the whole series and this story was no exception. Though things start out slow it picks up quickly and delivers a punch.
Fantastic read and highly recommended.
