Review: Hellforged by Nancy Holzner
Release Date: December 28, 2010
Publisher: Tor Teen
Deadtown Book #2
Genre: Urban Fantasy
After Vicky banished her demon nemesis to the fiery depths of Hell, she thought life would return to normal. But considering she has a werewolf lawyer boyfriend, a zombie apprentice who’s angling to become a pop star, and an eccentric vampire roommate, what is normal, anyway?
Then the supposedly banished Hellion starts to trespass in Vicky’s dreams—just as several of Deadtown’s zombies are viciously attacked and become really dead. When Vicky realizes she’s the only connection between the victims, she suspects that the demon is somehow working through her dreams to become Deadtown’s living nightmare.
What she doesn’t know is that her old enemy brings with it a force more terrifying—and deadly—than anything she’s battled before.
I find the world Nancy Holzner has built to be highly interesting, I love the people and places she describes and the new facts she throws in along the way. Victory has to go to Wales learn new things and expand on her training with her Aunt Mab and I loved learning more about her and the way she trains Vicky. I defiantly want to see more of Aunt Mab thrown in the next book. There isn't much romance in HELLFORGED (meaning like almost none) but there are many great fight scenes to entertain you. I missed all the people and places of Deadtown and hope that the next book has her do more in Deadtown and maybe with more of her sister and her family as well. Interested to see where Nancy takes this series next.
I gave it 3.5/5
