BORN OF HATRED IS THE SECOND IN THE HELLEQUIN CHRONICLES BY STEVE MCHUGH. Like the first book, BORN OF HATRED is, from the firs page forward fast paced,kickass good read!

Nate is getting his memories back and the Hellequin, again, pops up to save his ass!
Nate is after a serial killer that happens to be a Lich. This guy is bad news! He is strong, has wicked magic and can turn people into ghouls. Nate is really mad at this dude because not only is he raping women but he beat up and kidnapped Tommy ,his best friend ,and his daughter. And lets face it folks, you DONT want to piss off Nate,especially when he resurrects the Hellequin to help destroy this dude. ( )

Nice. Better than the first and the ending hinted at some really new directions for the characters. ( )

The journey continues with Nathan, this time on the trail of a serial killer, who seems a little less human (which makes sense, considering this is an urban fantasy series). This time the series flips between present day England and the past (this time in Montana). Nathan is getting his memory back and now we're finding out a little bit more about him and why this series is named "The Hellequin Chronicles."

Eh. I'll admit that this was a bit of a disappointment. Like the last book, this one is slow to start. It takes awhile to pick up and even then I was still sort of lukewarm about the whole thing. As other reviews mention, there aren't a lot of characters from the last book that appear here. I was hoping we'd learn more about the magic system and history, rather than perhaps a set of episodes (one per book) that maybe leads up to one big conclusion? I'm not sure if that is where this going but I'm still curious to find out.

I'm also not sure about the author's use of Native characters, places and tribes in this book. From basic Google research it seems the author did at least did make some effort to be accurate (and I don't have any specific criticisms at all), but I thought I'd note this just in case there are readers who might be concerned with this.

Am I raring to read the next book? Not as much as before but it helps this is readily available via Kindle Unlimited so I can easily binge read. Not a series I'd make an effort to wait for but it still has my curiosity piqued.

Recommend as a library borrow or buying the whole set really cheap if this interests you. ( )

Another 3 star book from Steve McHugh.

Don't get me wrong; it's a fun read. Once again the book follows 2 stories; that of the main character in the Old West, and then the main character in modern day London. Both are intriguing stories, that had be reading the book in little over a day. I'd definitely recommend picking it up if you're into urban fantasy.

My main complaints carry over from the first book. Every woman the main character meets is a bombshell. And unless that woman is with another man, they either want to sleep with the main character, or have slept with the main character in the past.

Everything else though was good. The book had an awesome villain, though one part of the story was fairly predictable. The inevitable power creep was handled in a way that ties in with the story well, and it had its funny moments. ( )

I had fun with this book. It's a solid entry and about what I expect and enjoy from urban fantasy books. The characters are likable enough, and there's a good mix of magic and real world elements. It's always been entertaining to me to see magical creatures live and adapt to the modern world.

One complaint I do have in the series is the women characters. Like a previous reviewer mentioned, every one of them is incredibly hot and attracted to Nate. It gets distracting and annoying after awhile. Plus, there are also some technical issues with the book such as grammar and spelling, but they weren't too bad.

Other than these minor gripes, I really enjoyed the story being told here. I'm interested in finding out more about Nate's powers and what he's truly capable of. ( )
