Reviews With Silent Screams (Hellequin Chronicles #3)

  • Alaina
    This series just keeps getting better and better!With Silent Screams is the third installment of the Hellequin Chronicles series. I fall more and more in love with Nate's character and can't wait to dive into the next book. In this book, Nate is back with a little bit of vengeance. He's tracking down someone who murdered one of his friends. I loved the whole mystery parts of these books because timelines seemed to intertwine with one another maki...

    First of all the "generic" rating/review. It's a good book. if you like Urban Fantasy and/or action I think you'll like it.Okay now for those who'd like a little more detail as to why I like it, read on.First I will be assuming that if you are planning to read this book you have already read the first 2. If you haven't stop messing around here, go and get the first 2 books and read them. If you're an Urban Fantasy fan you'll like them. Really go ...

    Book 1: 3*Book 2: 3*Book 2.5: 3.25*Book 3: 3.5*These are slowly getting better. They're still cheesy as all hell but entertaining.

    Someone is trying to send Nate Garrett a message, and since it's Nate, they're sending it with blood. When Nate receives a call from an old friend and arrives to find the friend rather messily murdered, he knows something is up. When the mysterious killers follow up with a well-placed bomb, it begins to get a little personal. Nate soon realises that the people after him have some connection with a case he closed over thirty years ago, a case that...
  • Gary
    not as good as the first two but we'll worth the read looking forward to the next one
  • Jake
    So much potential, but……For some reason finding a good male lead urban fantasy is quite a feat. The two series, that I believe, lead the pack in this genre are The Dresden Files and the Iron Druid Chronicles. After reading the first two Hellequin books I thought we may have a new contender. The main character wasn’t a distraught underdog (something I hate and many series seem to be adopting), there was plenty of action, and I enjoyed the sp...

    Nate Garrett returned!!! I loved this series; was happy when I stumbled into it by chance. It was fast-paced and entertaining. This book brought up the gory factor. The villains were vicious. The horror that they brought upon the victims were insane. Although I couldn't help to get pretty excited over it (I sound insane myself, don't I?) because it gave reason for Nate to go rampage over the villain... As always, this book has historical flashbac...

    Another great adventure! Devoured it in two days - and already started on the fourth...Amazing series, interesting characters, unpredictable plot and lots of magic had me perfectly entertained once more throughout the book!Heartily recommended for fans of HArry Dresden or Iron Druid Chronicles!

    With thanks to the author and publisher for the review copy.His name is Nathan Garrett, but he’s also known as Hellequin. And murdering one of his friends and trying to blow him up is a good way to get this centuries-old sorcerer’s full attention…A long time ago (It feels like now) I impulsively purchased “Crimes Against Magic” the first in the Hellequin series from Steve McHugh featuring sorcerer Nate Garrett and immediately and irrevo...
  •  Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books)
    This is by far the darkest book in the series so far, which is saying something. I think it might also be my favorite. I loved the magic and the supernatural entities in the book, and Nate when he's peeved is something to watch out for. This would make a great action movie, although I'd cringe on some parts. Nate is the man!!Reviewed for Bitten by Books. http://bittenbybooks.com.

    I'm really enjoying listening to this series in audio form. The narrator does a good job bringing Nate to life, and I love his character.This time, Nate is trying to track down who killed an old friend. Things seem to point to a case that he handled a long time ago for Galahad, another old friend and current king of Shadow Falls. In the current timeline, he is paired up with an FBI agent who ends up having a very close connection to the case. The...

    Wow! I have never been disappointed with this series, every novel kicks it up a notch! And if you read this series you all ready know that! If you haven't well start with book 1 you will love them all!

    Just gets better and better!Rtc
  • Valour
    Still burning strong I've really enjoyed this third book in the Hellequin Chronicles. McHugh creates a supernatural world that blends seamlessly with modern reality, and the ongoing suspense around Nate's background has me reaching for book 4!!
  • Jeff
    There are not enough superlatives to describe this series. In a review of an earlier book I compared Nate, the hero, to an urban James Bond (perhaps Jason Bourne might be a better analogy but either works). Well this time, he's up against a cross between Charles Manson, Hannibal Lector and any number of James Bond Villains. Nate is still a brutal killing machine (hence the Bourne analogy)but he's the good guy's killing machine.While this series l...
  • Annie
    While I've really enjoyed this series so far, I do wish the author had fleshed out the characters a bit more. They are all typically entirely centered around one or two character traits, and those traits seem to be consistent across all the characters that help Nate out. I wish there was more variety. But that won't stop me from continuing to read the series!
  • Anne Monteith
    I've always enjoyed reading about medieval history, especially the Tudor era. Years ago we had our family history done an discovered that we are related to one of the many Eleanor's in the Plantagenet line and I was excited to read this novel based on Joan, Countess of Kent and niece of King Edward III. I found this book very well-written and I read it in a few hours. I can defiantly say that I am glad that I was not a woman, noble or not during ...
  • Anoop Menon
    Though lacked the kind of depth that it had in its previous two books... (felt like something was missing)... i enjoyed this book equal to the previous two books in the series.. great setup and good way the characters are setup from history/mythology...awesome take on it.. must read..!!
  • Scott Voyles
    The Hellenic is backI thought this book was better as there were more insights into the main character. I the magic is stronger and the plot thicker.
  • Mike
    Great entry in a excellent series.Review: https://derailmentsofthought.com/2017...
  • Jules (Never enough time to read)
    I really enjoyed this one.It is turning into a favourite series of mine, I'm so glad I stuck with Nate after not liking him all that much in book one. It was a fun, action packed and fast read.
  • Teresa B.
    I really love this series! Not normally into urban fantasy with a male as the lead charactor but Im addicted to this series bad part is I have to wait for the author to write his next book
  • Victoria
    A good read. Really getting into this series. Looking forward to the next book.
  • Douglas Debner
    On the whole this is still a well above average book. There is a lot of bad guys taunting the main character (Nate), which makes no sense since he is supposedly the world's most accomplished assassin. It is portrayed as just those characters' type of crazy, but the bad guys are also part of a thirty year fairly well thought out plot so it is a little hard to see why they don't just try to outright kill Nate. Additionally, at one point in time Nat...
  • Anjum Madani
    This review is for the entire series so far (2018) and while i read the first one, the others were Audiobooks. There are some individual differences between the books of course but the statements below are for the entire theme and style of the books.First the bad. It was unclear to me what age exactly Mr McHugh is aiming the book at. The sheer quality of good yarn telling is superb but at times it feels like maybe it's predominantly aimed at the ...
  • Trish R.
    Wow! These stories just get better and better.This one was about Simon and Patricia and their group of murderers killing and torturing young people looking for a tattooist then killing them if they didn’t turn out to be the one. AND these murderers were really insane. The description of what they did and how they laughed while doing it was just incredible. The author really made you hate them.I do love Nate/Hellequin, he’s so brutally magical...
  • Nancy Sebert
    This series really reminds me of the Jim Butcher's Dresden files, very binge-able, and quick, and fun. What's not to like about a 1600 year old sorcerer who battles bad guys and has some cool friends like Hades, the Olympian, and Tommy, a werewolf? Each book combines battling an evil entity with political maneuvering between Avalon, the supernatural "government" overseen by an elusive Merlin, the Law of Avalon, the Shield of Avalon, the human sid...
  • Gareth
    A fun read, like the first two books in the series, but also marred by the same issues.Again, my one major issue is with the frequent cringeworthiness of the lead character, Nate's (and sometimes others'), behaviour and dialogue. At this point it's clear that mine and the author's taste just differs in this regard, and that's fine.I'll likely work my way through the rest of the series over the next few months, because I otherwise really enjoyed t...
  • Shannon
    Visiting old characters (like Sky), meeting new characters that could be useful in the future, and having Nate learn more about his necromancy while he no longer has blood magic ... It's a great book! I'm really enjoying this series and like the jumping between past and present, which ties the whole story together. In this book we go to Shadow Falls, see multiple battles with werelions and trolls, and get more proof that while Nate will do anythi...
  • Skye Blue ☆*~゚ლ(´ڡ`ლ)~*☆
    I really enjoy this series overall.I'm currently very big on urban fantasy, and I prefer a male MC.I'm a little thrown.We know he's very powerful, but since he just lost his strongest suit (blood magic) and now his new strong suit being a power he doesn't fully understand. I'd think he'd flounder more with his magic.He still gets his butt handed to him, when you'd think he would be able to crush them.Yet when the time arises that he needs to be a...
