Immortal hounds is an interesting read, a world in which no one can die from wounds or illness. To the point where they even cure their illnesses by killing themselves and reviving instantly with a clean bill of health. I was naturally drawn to the covers with splatter and interesting looking characters. The story had me wanting to know what happens next with the ending of every volume.
Unfortunately and much to my surprise,the series only has six volumes. With this, I feel that the characters are under developed as well as the story and the ending wasn’t clear enough for it to really be “the end” and conflicts didn’t seem fully resolved. Despite this fact, I feel that the series is still a fun one to go through, jam packed with action!
If you guys have access to reading online, I would definitely recommend it, I’m happy to have owned it for the entertainment aspect. It’s really a gamble, if you’re bored go for it, if you want fulfillment, this won’t really do it for ya.
But if it is any solace at all, the girl characters area really cute and bad ass!
