URBAN FANTASY REVIEW: Hellforged - Nancy Holzner

Release Date: 31/03/11


A demon is stalking Vicky's dreams-just as several of Deadtown's zombies are viciously attacked and become really dead. And when Vicky realizes she is the only connection between the victims, she suspects that the demon is somehow working through her dreams to become Deadtown's living nightmare.


When I read the original novel in the series, I was instantly struck by how much scope there was for the world within, the author had some outstanding characters which had been beautifully detailed in such a way that there was someone within that would appeal to any fan of the urban fantasy.

So when I heard that the second novel was being released I really couldn’t wait to get a copy. What Nancy does well is create drama with characters that the reader will love, backs that up with some seriously delicious prose and tops it off with a good dollop of kick ass action that is so fulfilling it feels like a five course banquet. Add to this dialogue and backstory to die for (or undie in some of the cast’s cases) which leaves you desiring more. A real treat and one that demonstrates that Deadtown is here to stay.
