After winning her freedom from a reaper and facing off against a fearsome demon boss, Ava is now a masterless hellhound. Her friend, Leo, has found a new life after death hims ...more
It's set in the '30s and follows a guy named Lee Grey, but that's all I know about it. (I think he might be a mob cleaner, though, like Leo, but that is purely secondhand speculation. I haven't read it yet.)(less)
Dark, gritty, and original, GRIM TIDINGS is a strong follow-up to Kittredge's BLACK DOG. With less of the elements that I don't like and more suspense and drama, GRIM TIDINGS is an excellent second book in the Hellhound Chronicles.
A lot happens in GRIM TIDINGS. Between flashbacks to World War II and the Midwest in the late 1940s, we get a pretty significant chunk of Ava's history, and as a result, we find out what is driving her actions for the majori ...more
I haven’t read the first book, so it was a bit confusing in the beginning. As I got further into the book the author filled me in on past events. She did it without slowing down the story and I was soon swept into the book.
You’ll be taken back and forth from Ava’s past to current time as she battles The Walking Man once again. She thought sh ...more
If Ava thought killing her reaper and thus winning her freedom would make her life easier, she was dead wrong. Being a hellhound isn’t an easy life, especially when a murderous presence from the past comes back to haunt you, bringing zombies with him. Ava once again finds herself in the thick of thing with little hope of survival, but, she’s tougher than she thinks and not entirely alone.
This is the second book in the Hellhound Chronicles by Caitlin Kittredge and much like the first book, she b ...more

Grim Tidings was absolutely, by far, my favorite book of 2016! It grabbed my shirt and took me for one Hell of a ride!
Even though I haven't read the first book in the Hellhound Chronicles, I was able to easily follow the entire storyline with ease. The author was able to mix in just enough back story that I didn't feel lost, but she never created a narrative that rambled on for days. It was a fantastic transition from chapt ...more
Ava, a lost soul, is a hellhound. In Black Dog, Ava is subjected to a cruel reaper of souls named Gary. She meets Leo and her life changes. In this book, as an unfettered Hellhound, she and Leo become witting and unwitting accomplices of an Angel of the employed rather than fallen persuasion. They are tasked to stop the Walking Man, a wild card in the pantheon of mystical beings in this series.
I may have mentioned, Ava is a contradiction, she is a merciless kill ...more
