Grim Tidings by Caitlin Kittredge

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 killer and yet has a heart.   She is not a shape shifter and yet she shifts her shape.  Her internal conflicts would fuel the furnace of a passel of psychologists and psychiatrists.  Leo, is a grim reaper, perhaps the Grim Reaper.  The interesting thing about these characters is they take lumps, they bleed, belch, sleep and cry.  In other words in spite of their other wordly existence they still suffer as mortals.   

The plot is intricate and sometimes confusing.  It is often difficult to determine who is friend and who is foe.     

I recommend the book.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
