Once again, I disagree with the majority of the ratings for the same issues that I had with the first book. The story had a lot of potential (it was actually better than the first), but the writing really detracted from it and made it really hard to get through.

Once Kas returns to Hellhouse, she finds out that while she and Kali were gone, there were several attacks on the homes of the fallen, and many children were orphaned. In addition to taking care of the children, Kas, the fallen, and

Kasadya Hellhound Twisted by Karen Swart

WTH?? OMG??? REALLY? That is what is running through my head after reading this book. I have so many emotions warring with each other- sympathy, anger, sadness, betrayel and more. This author knows how to pack a wallop regarding her writing. I was so enthralled with her first book that I bought her second one and read within a day. I am still left needing and craving more!! I can't believe the events that took place in the bo

Once again, Swart has written an absolute page turner that had me devouring every single word. Her writing style is purposeful and personal which allows the reader to feel every emotion that is intended for the scene. Kas is still the spunky smartass that we met and grew to love in book one but there is so much more to her if you take the time to venture beyond the surface. Kas is a developed warrior but more importantly, she has learned the importance of independence and loyalty and she underst ...more

Hellhound Twisted picks up right where Hellhound Awakened leaves off.

Now she has to fight her own people, the fallen, for acceptance and she has to fight demons to save her best friend. She needs to hurry before time runs out for both of them. If she becomes a hellhound in entirety then the mysterious and her former trainer Chax De Luca will have to kill her. Unle ...more

Wow... Just WOW! Hellhound Twisted picks up right where Hellhound Awakened left off.. The reader and easily finished Awakened and pick up Twisted without losing a beat. Even if, like myself, some time has passed since you read Awakened, slipping back into Kasadya's life takes nothing. As with Awakened, so to with Twisted, the reader is sucked quickly into the book. The reader will while understanding Kas' hurt and pain, will fully understand Chax's anger at her as well. Kas learned nothing while ...more

Recommends it for: ALL
Kasadya Levourne’s journey continues where we left her in Hellhound Awakened. She is in trouble and Chax may have reached his limits with patience.

Together with Raphael the archangel, Kas her team and the fallen sets out to save Kali from the evil demon prince Ballen. They save her but; the only way to keep her alive is in Exsilium. Chax forces Kasadya and her team to go back to Exsilium where they have to face the other fallen and their fate in this world.

Kasadya is back from hell. After 2 years of kicking demon ass shes traded one hell for another. If you remember in the last book Kas and Kali escaped hell and caught up with the Fallen. They went after Ballen her capture however during this battle Kali was taken. So that is where Twisted picks up. Which was slightly a problem for me and trust when I say I cant believe this was an issue for me. But there is very little refresher content. Ive probably read 30 books since Kasadya Hellhound Awakened ...more

I read Kasadya Hellhound Twisted by Karen Swart. I recommend this book. It starts where book 1 left off. They are in the middle of a bar trying to kill demons and the Fallen show up with all her friends that she hasn't seen since she went to Hell. She greets her friends and goes to find Kali, but she is nowhere to be found. They all joined forces and with the help of an archangel Raphael, found Kali is the hands of Ballen, Gluttire. He had put her on a cross, bleeding her to out. More archangels ...more

Who has stayed up through the night reading a book knowing you'll be kicking yourself come morning. Little to no sleep, living in a fantasy world the author created. Closing your eyes... Nope not an option... Fighting heavy eyelids... Not a chance... No way, you're wide awake and turning pages no where near the end. Reaching the point of no return at 85% - 40 pages left and know that the time in this fantasy world will soon reach it's end. The pages fly by leaving you hanging by a thread, re-rea ...more

Favorite Line “For a phoenix to rise, it must first die.”

Man, another emotional bomb was dropped at the end of this book!
Kasadya tries and tries but that girl just can't stop and think before she does something. She has the best intentions but, that isn't enough!
First she finds out her blood turns demons back into humans which it totally not her fault me now
She is back in Exsilium with her friends the half breeds and Kali things should be getting easier right? WRONG! Kali has a death charm giv

This book is the sequel to the first book Kasadya: Hellhound Awakened. I said before that the last book deserves more than 5 stars and I'm going to say it again about this book. Wow!

I thought the first book in this series was amazing. Book 2 was even better. After being rescued from Hell, literally, Kasadya is dealing with some major issues. First she has to fight The Demon Prince to get her friend Kalli back. Just when she thinks she is safe away from Hell, she finds a death charm on her friends neck. The Demon revealed what he wants in return to remove the charm. Kasadya goes on a hunt to find the items needed to save her friend from death. In the meantime she has trainin ...more

This is yet another masterpiece! Twists, betrayals, and new found hope come from places you would never imagine in the heart pounding sequel to Hellhound Awakened. Alliances shift as fast as light and people are gunning for Kasandya from all directions. Even as she tried to harden her heart to survive the never ending blows she is forced to confront her worst enemy yet: herself. At this point I expected her character to crumble and the plot ultimately destroying the book, like has happened to me ...more

Kas is still just as smart-mouthed as she was in the first book, "hey, don't look at me. I didn't have the option of choosing my company, so you can take that "what have you done?" look and shove it." I love it she's just so snarky, "can you blame me? you have a really bad way of telling someone something Chax and you totally freaked me out." Chax we start to see something in him perhaps its jealousy, maybe, "Chax's evil smile appeared. "Good, I will not tolerate your weakness in my house, and n ...more

Kasadya leads you once more on a rollercoaster of emotions and you do not know where the ride will end. This book is the second in a series and starts where the Hellhound Awakened has left off. Kas has many hard lessons to learn including the hardest of all lessons; learning how to trust. Her friends must carry on their training to earn the right to be Guardians. Through the twists and turns of this book, you feel the emotions along with Kasadya, laughing and crying, panic and fear. Well wrote a ...more

Book #2 of the Kasadya Series

I loved the first book, and couldn’t wait to jump into this book and see where it was all going to lead. Hellbound Twisted didn’t disappoint, and I soon found myself completely immersed in their lives again. Just as well written, the characters come to life and all are such important aspects that work well together. A few twists and turns kept me fully gripped from start to finish, now I just have to wait until the next instalme

BUGGER... I've been wanting to reread this series again for a while, and finally got to it... And I'm REALLY REALLY struggling with it. The level of violence from the good guy/s to the good guy/s, especially the H/h is turning my stomach. It's not domestic violence or anything so simple... It's 'training' and 'control' and an asshole disassociated(?)

Lies, deceit, and distrust lie around every corner. No one is to be trusted and every move made will be a gamble in life or death. Kasadya's loyalties and skills will be tested beyond their limits and the choices she makes will effect not only her, but the entire world. She is the world's only hope, and she holds the fate of the world in her hands. But is she truly worthy of this most important responsibility? Only time will tell.

A strong sequel, and honestly a better book then the first. Fallen angels, demons, archangels, love story, i mean what more could you want? Kas has returned to Exsulim and back with the Fallen, but must face the consequences of her time spent in hell. In Hellhound Twisted, Kas has come into her own as a warrior, the only downside is sometimes (actually quite a bit) she's still an annoying selfish little twit. However, I have absolutely fallen in love with Chax... and I can only hope after the en ...more

I love the characters ,especially Chaz I like that he's the silent stubborn type. Kas needed someone to challenge her. Kas and her choices did start to annoy me after a while. It just seems like she never learned from her mistakes and does not take responsibility for her actions. I hope to see some growth from her character in the next book. I also enjoyed the plot twist I didn't see that coming at all. Read the book in one day so I obviously enjoyed it for the

Kasadya Hellhound Twisted did not skip a beat. It instantly picked up where Awakened ended and just like Awakaened, Twisted does not disappoint. There are secrets and twisits around every corner and the true nature of some is revealed.

I love the kick ass female lead! Kasadya delivers as the sarcastic, witty, hard knocks hellhound. This book has it all; demons, angels, friendships and romance. It is an action pack thrill ride from start to finish. An excellent series for the adrenaline junkie in
