Review: A Cat’s Chance in Hell


What you see here is first book of a series that’s been out for about 3 years. It’s the start of a series that includes vampires,werewolves, wizards, shape-shifters, demons, ghouls and best of all, an attack cat! Trust me on the last one, you’ll love him.

If that doesn’t interest you should at least read the blurb:

If the Demon Master gets his way the City is about to become Hell on Earth.

Gabi has some extraordinary talents. Some might call them supernatural, but for her they’re just part of everyday life. What she knows about the supernatural would give most humans nightmares forever. Ridding the streets of bad-ass creatures of the night is Gabi’s other job. Taking up the mantle of her father’s legacy, she is a Hunter for the Societas Malus Venatori. The first female ever bestowed the title. Her day job is a little less dangerous. Most of the time.

Being ambushed and kidnapped by the sinfully sexy Master Vampire of the City should have been just another night on the job, except for the fact that Julius has other plans for her. When he reveals that his nemesis wants control of the City and has plans to fill it with Demons from the Etherworld, creating an army of Ghouls and turning humans into nothing more than cattle to feed his Clan, Gabi must choose her path. She must decide whether to join with Julius in a stand against the Demon Master or flee the City with her friends and family, leaving the Vampires to wage their own war and the rest of the residents to their fate.

But it’s not in Gabi’s nature to back down from a fight, no matter how impossible the odds. As the Malus Venatori prepare for war, Gabi finds herself pulled deeper into Julius’s world and she makes some disturbing discoveries about her unusual supernatural abilities. Her existence might just be the answer to a mystery as old as the Vampire race. Even more unsettling than that is her undeniable attraction to Julius and the taste of his blood. But before she can come to terms with her conflicting desires they must all survive the Demon onslaught and find a way to safeguard the truth of her heritage.

While the supernatural bad guys know her as Angeli Morte, her friends call her Hellcat!

If you like your heroine smart, sassy and absolutely kick-ass and your Vampire hero sexy as sin and twice as dangerous you’re going to love the Hellcat Series.

Now come on, you have to admit it sounds like an interesting series to read.

When I read A Cat’s Chance in Hell it was not what I expected. I could tell you one thing which is that the author, Sharon Hannaford, wrote one heck of a 1st book. As said in the blurb, Gabi is a hunter and she’s got to be one of the most kick-ass heroines I’ve ever read. She also has a secret: Gabi is a human with vampire abilities. Don’t misunderstand this bit, none of her parents are vampires but the method in which Gabi got her abilities is very fascinating. Kudos to Sharon Hannaford for creating such a method.

I’ll admit that the beginning of the story was kind of slow and was a bit difficult for me to get through it. Ignore those thoughts and just continue on! Once Julius appears, the action kicks in full force and it becomes impossible to put this book down because you will be sucked in! Also, be warned because once you finish A Cat’s Chance in Hell, you’ll be rushing to get the next book, All Hell Breaks Loose.
