Dark, original and awesome, GRIM TIDINGS is a strong follow-up to Kittredge’s BLACK DOG. With less of the elements that I don’t like and more suspense and drama, GRIM TIDINGS is an excellent second book in the Hellhound Chronicles.

BLACK DOG, book one in the Hellhound Chronicles, had some aspects I definitely was not a fan of. However, for the most part, BLACK DOG is a dark urban fantasy, packed to the brim with characters, plot lines and action, and is a wild ride through a new world Kittredge has created.
THE NIGHTMARE GARDEN is an absolutely gorgeous book with captivating mythology and elegant phrasing. I found myself pausing as I read to roll phrases over my tongue and read them aloud to savor. Kittredge’s world is a dark delight that blends shades of otherworldly magic with the mechanical enthusiasm of steampunk to create something I’ve never encountered before.
Once a month, Angela from Dark Faerie Tales and I will each bully each other into reading a book we love that the other hasn’t read. This month, I’m reading STREET MAGIC by Caitlin Kittredge, and I’ve bullied Angela into reading THE GREYFRIAR by Clay & Susan Griffith.
