Reviewed by JenI know. I know. You can't judge a book by it's cover, but before I start talking about the pages inside, let's all take a moment to appreciate the absolutely gorgeous cover art for this book. . . . Wow.
Moving to the actual story, To Hell and Back is a companion novella to Wrong Side of Hell. It continues the story of the tortured heroine Kira -- and Logan, the hellhound who loves her. The story picks up right on the heels of the last one. Logan is trying to get Kira to safety after having rescued her from Purgatory. They are happy together, but the odds are stacked against them. And it's only a matter of time before they can no longer outrun the monsters that are chasing them.
Logan is kidnapped and dragged back to hell. There, he must finally face his past and his enemies. He must find a way vanquish them if he ever hopes to have a real future with the woman he loves. In the meantime, Kira is offered help from some familiar faces from the League. But can she trust them?
The story is pretty fast paced and our couple must fight their battles separately for most of the book. There are a few love scenes, but this is really a story about these two fighting to get back to one another. I liked it. I was glad to see more of Kira and Logan. These are two people who complete one another. Both have endured horrific pasts. But in each other, they have found the peace and happiness that they never believed existed for themselves.
We do get cameos from Priest and Cale, in addition to Lillith, Seth the Golden, and Samael. This book could be read as a standalone, but you are really better off reading Wrong Side of Hell first, so you can see how these two fell in love.
I enjoyed it. I hope there will be a third story for these two one day.
