I assume that if you are reading this review is because you have read the previous books, if not, ¿what are you waiting for? And most important: don't read further!! You can get some unwanted spoilers, because this is the third book in a series and must be read in order.

I was waiting for months for the release of this book and I have to say that it totally fulfilled my expectations. When I read Kasadya Hellhound Awakened, I must say that I was a bit reluctant to read another book about

I love it!!!! Chax point of view was lovely!!!!

This book was feeling's twister (I almost cry in some parts), since the Kasadya's charm reveal (all we know who will be, but we never know what could happen) to a love and life sacrifice for the mankind.

Here Kasadya learnt the terrible consequences from taking a bad decission and thrusting in the wrong people and not in who have always been there for her.

“I have so many priceless memories to embrace at that final moment that it will soften the blow. I know my friends will continue the fight, and they will ensure victory.”

Karen Swart does it again! I swear her books get better and better! This book is the third in the series and is the best book yet! When I received this ARC, I was ecstatic! Seriously, I locked myself in my room for hours to read it. Can't wait for the last book to come out!

My Review *No Spoilers*

This book picks up directly after the second book. In this book Kasadya is ordered to unleash her hellhound born transformation to complete her divinity. The problem? No one knows if she can control th

I was so excited to get this book, I love this series and the reason for that is Chax I love him to pieces, even if he's an overbearing a** most of the time. This time we actually get to be in Chax's head at some points in the story which I loved, "I watched you from afar, my beautiful Kasadya, and wanted you to fine me on your own." We do see some jealousy I think it is from Kasadya which means she does care for Chax, I mean like seriously though jealousy is an emotion used for those you care a ...more

I don't think it's any secret to anyone at all that I love Karen Swart's Kasadya Hellhound series. They are just so much fun! I'm serious, I haven't had this much fun reading in a long time. The premise of the series is more unique that most "Angel" type books and the author throws in enough twists to keep me guessing, and on the edge of my seat. It's a wild ride, and the action literally never stops, and I got more Chax. A softer side to him, but still more of him!! Yeah.

Holy Shit! Talk about an emotional roller coaster.

In this book, Kasadya, also known as Kas, is all over the place on the emotional front. Her whole life as she knew it has already began to rock in the last book, but unfortunately for her that was only the beginning. Who is ever really ready to hear that the fate of the world rest in their hands? OH SHIT, right?!?!? To add to the boiling pot of nerves Kas is about to meet her mate.

I've said it before and I'll say it again! Be sure when you start Karen's Kasadya Series you start each book well before you plan to sleep at night! I don't mean that it will keep you up all night with night terrors, but it will keep you up all night turning the pages. As you can see I did none of the above when I read Awakened, Twisted or Born. I started them late and finished them all early.

Once again Born takes off where Twisted left off, so if you are wanting to start this awesome series, p

Kasadya Series #3

This series just keeps getting better and better and I can’t wait to see how it’s going to end. Kasadya just can’t seem to stay away from trouble, and can always be found right in the middle of it. Chax really stepped up in this book, and has turned into quite the guy to fall for. All the other characters were more in the background this time, but are there when needed and not to be forgotten. From start to finish, this book was such an emoti

Each book ends perfectly from the last, so there's no confusion as to what's going on. The main character in this story is Kasadya, Kas for short. Kas still has not found her mate. In this book she will found the one to take her from Hellbound Born to Kas again. Kasadya has grown up since the first book. I love how she protrays herself. Strong, independent and stubborn. Trying to be helpful, but trouble always finds her. Kas and her friends are preparing for battle with the demons. Each defeat K ...more

OMG!! It just keep getting better mad better. It is a non stop chain of reactions, actions and now, finally love and passion. I wished we had more of Chax POV, he is so much more than what I expected. Which is saying, a lot!!! As for Kas, she is still as reckless and stubborn but she learns to lean on others and keep becoming more and more powerful. Now I hope the next book is the final one, I don t think I can t take much more.

The moment has come, the moment when a monster will be born. But will he be able to reach her in time to save her? Is the one inside the monster stronger then the monster itself? There is only one way, and it wasn’t going to be pretty.

Kasadya’s world is thrown into turmoil, her charm revealed she has no choice but place her life in his hands and pray she walks out alive. But her world was about to take another turn for the worst. In a race against time, she trie

3.5. Almost a 4, so I rounded up. Although I think the average reviews are still higher than they should be, this was easily the best of the three books. There were still lots of writing errors, but the story was really compelling.

In order to be able to battle the evil that is coming her way, Kas must become born. In doing so, she has become more reliant on her charm (who is confirmed within the first couple of pages). As she navigates the awkwardness of this new partnership, while simult

*I received this book (as an ARC) via the Author in exchange for an Honest Review*

This third installment of the Kasadya series, it definitely more powerful than the previous two. Picking up from the exact place where Hellhound Twisted ended, emotions run rampant as Chax forces Kasadya to go Born. This book has so many twists and turns the readers won't be able to put it down. There are twists of elation, a few of anger that the reader will wish they were Fallen to help out, and more than one

Karen, I would first like to offer a profound thank you for including me in your dedication. I am absolutely taken aback by this honor as it is a complete surprise and unexpected. Thank you!

I am absolutely in love with the characters that we have met along this most thrilling ride. The Kasadya Hellhound series is easily one of the best that I have ever read… and I’ve read A LOT of books. Let me flesh this out for you a little more.

Just keeps getting better! I am so grateful that I purchased the complete collection! I don't think I could have waited for the 3rd book to come out! The only other thing I could wish for is maybe pictures of the characters :) I don't think my mind is doing them all justice. Kasadya continues to let her emotions rule her in this book, and boy oh boy can I relate with that! Letting the heat of the moment drive you only to regret your choices later!

I am in awe! It's very rare that an author has enough talent to make you emote to a character as much as I did to Kasadya. I felt everything right along with her, from heart wrenching betrays, to the peace of knowing that your loved ones will live. Admittedly, I wanted to strangle her once or twice, but i can't think of a good book where the character doesn't draw you into the story to that extent. As Kasadya becomes more of a kick as than ever, I couldn't put down the book! Everything from the ...more

Wow! What a ride! I am really loving how each of the books in this series keep getting better. Not only was this one adventure and action filled, but we really got to see how Kasadya has been growing up and becoming the woman she was meant to be. Yes, she still makes some really dumb choices, but don't we all. I also adored watching as her relationships grew deeper with her friends and Chax *swoon*.

Wow! Where do I begin? This series kicks ass! The action starts on page one and there is no calm in the storm. When Kasadya unleashes her Hellhound Born, Hell had better look out. Just when you think Karen Swart has shown you all there is, she takes you to the bowls of Hell itself. Through Karen’s descriptive tones, I felt the heat, smelled the stench and tasted the sulfur. I devoured this installment of the Hellhound Series and if you are a fan of the series you will too.

2.5 stars. (spoiler alert.)

This series is just difficult for me. I wanted to love it , tried to enjoy it. From book one I knew that this story was a good. The plot itself I mean, is a good one. But the execution fell a hair short. The ultimate deal breaker for me are the characters.

Never have I wished the protagonist and her mate would just die so I could read the story from someone else's point of view. The plot was what kept me trudging through. Until now.

This is an overall review for the series (4 books).

It's pretty good. It's easy to connect with characters and the plots interesting.

The world building is good too... It's just that almost all the world rules are extremely flexible, and some of them only get followed when it's not easier for the author to forget them. There are quite a few things that left me thinking 'wtf just happened... that shouldn't be possible', or 'that should be possible because they have already done something similar'

Well, what a fantastic journey! In part 3 of this story we get to see a different version of Kas. Kas goes hell-hound born, and finds her charm. Chax makes the perfect charm for her, and their love is strong. Their love shows you just how important it is to have some kind of love in your life.

In order to do this she needs to kill the demon princes in order to get their power to help her achieved this goal. By letting go of her control and going "born" she needs to fi ...more

I Loved loved loved this book

I don't often get teary eyed while reading a book but the ending had me needing a tissue or two. The Kas character may get on my nerves from time to time but she has heart in a fierce loyalty towards her loved ones. I finally saw growth and maturity from her. The biggest bonus was reading each book and seeing the moments when her love began to grow for the mate she never knew she had. I thoroughly enjoyed this book it was a sweet treat for a hopeless romantic like me

Out of all the books, Hellhound Born is possibly the best, but I beg of the writer to PLEASE get an editor on this!!!!!! This series as a whole needs to be edited again. But as far as Hellhound Born goes, it's good. Kas is finally born as Hellhound, and discovers her charm... who is no surprise. However, I LOVE reading through Chax, but wish there was more. The fighting got repeative, especially at the end, and I found myself just scanning it, and I felt the final battle was completely blown by
