I had seen this book around before I was invited to be a part of the blog tour and thought it sounded like quite a fun read about hellhounds protecting the earth and mankind. Except the hellhounds are more like demons than dogs. Anyway, so, yeah. I agreed to be a part of the blog tour. I’ve got a little guest post for you about how Karen’s hellhounds came to be, and then there’s some information about the author and the book at the end, along with a tour-wide Rafflecopter.
For a very long time I had this demon like girl running around in my head. I always had a crazy imagination but never had the guts to bring life to it. But finally I caved and decided to write a novel about this crazy girl.
Although she looked like demon, Kasadya fights demons. When I think about the term fight fire with fire this gives a great example of the hellhound. I needed something that was as hard as a demon yet different. So I gave life to the hellhound. They have huge bat wings that is used for many things. They are strong and can be used as weapons to push away demons coming from her back. Further into the series she also learns how to control magic with them.
Then we have her horns. Not on top of her head, but in front these also comes in handy when she needs to head-butt a demon or two. Finally I wanted to give them some edge over demons so I gave her excellent aim and strength. Together all of these makes is possible for hellhounds to fight and concur demons. But of course every great thing needs it downfalls, so I also added in some exciting twist for the hellhounds.
They become super crazed and go into what I called the born version. This is when they really go out and destroy anything in their path. But don’t worry they have a safety button in the version of a charm. Their charms are their destined mates, and these mates are able to control their emotions and calm them down. But they are also able to release them when needed. And in Hellhound Born this is just what we are going to see. Crazed out hellhounds battling against thousands of demons.
