The rest of the discussion between the two results in continued cringeworthy penis jokes every few lines and this got old really fast.

What’s next, hamster rescuing? This kind of made me want all the characters to snuff it. Bloodshot also features the world of urban exploration. Raylene decides to cberie the bones, let Elizabeth kill everyone and then helps her to escape. In reading Hellbent, I was able to finally put some of my feelings about the series into words. But for Aeriel, whom he kidnaps to serve his These developments make both Raylene and Adrian seem more real and work well to counter the more action-based sequences of the novel.

So to sum it all up, if you liked Bloodshot, you can pretty much expect more of the same from Hellbent.

Sharp and ambitious, Zach Barrows is on his way My money was on bats. Apr 16, chucklesthescot rated it it was ok Shelves: A rip-roaring good time Like its predecessor, Hellbent is a fun little story which sweeps the readers off of their feet and puts them at the front of a speeding amusement park ride of their choosing. You’d think with something that funny this book would be as good as Bloodshotwhich was a fun romp, whose humor more than made up for the flaws.


I know people get tired, burnt out, overworked. In a happy-go-lucky way.

Hellbent by Cherie Priest book review

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. Raylene was working two cases throughout dherie book and they were nicely balanced. It was fun, fast moving, and some good action.

Retrieved January 15, Cherie Priest is back with another installment in the tale of Raylene Pendle, vampire thief extraordinaire. I thought I was back in sixth grade again. I am sorry there seems to be no more ;riest for this cgerie of misfits because they have found a soft spot in my heart, especially now that there is a new Vampire House in Seattle with Ray and her companions at it’s helm. Retrieved 18 February cgerie She gives just the right amount of background ;riest the reader doesn’t get lost.

I read Bloodshot about a year ago, and while I wouldn’t list it as one of my top titles of the year, I must admit that I found it to be a fun, yet enjoyable read that’s not afraid to play with the conventions of priset urban fantasy genre.

Meanwhile Ian’s brother Max is trying to track him down to kill him because Max wants to control the Vampire House and Ian is the current heir to it. The dry sarcasm, the world building and characters, the long arc that is evolving, the relationships For a smackdown, everyone knows you wear something you could care less about because there Better than the first, a little bit of humor, but two areas I didn’t like are: The baddies of the plot; namely, the schizophrenic witch, and the Atlanta Barrington House vamps, turn out to be not much of a challenge for Raylene – which takes a lot of air out of the narrative.

Cherie Priest

Raylene is trying to find a witch who has stolen some penis bones that Horace wants. Bishop is the director of acquisitions for a NYC auction house and has discovered some rare and highly valuable Baculum or penis bones while at an auction house. But Raylene needs the fat payday that Horace is promising her for retrieving the bones to help take care of her new makeshift family, which includes a blind vampire named Ian and a couple of runaway human kids.


A lot happened, and while it built up to a good follow, I’m sad to realize that there won’t be a book three in this series. This book was a total riot. Now Raylene must snatch up the potent relics, solve a murder, and keep Ian safe—all while fending off a psychotic sorceress.

A girl could do a lot worse for a partner than an ass-kicking drag queen—right? In terms of the plot, there is, paradoixcally, too much going on and not enough.

Want to Read saving…. There were some mean bastards who were very nice to thier pets. View all 5 comments. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Other readers may follow the same line of thought and reach the other conclusions I ultimately drew.

But other than that, there wasn’t much here.

But her fledgling family is threatened when Ian is called back to his old vampire house, an action that may cost him his life. How could a vampire survive acting as stupid as Raylene does here?

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. The funniest things happen to her!

I don’t know who this Ross person is.
