  • Emma
    For those already 7 books deep into the Hellequin series, this first book of three Avalon Chronicles provides a welcome addition to the world. Switching the focus to newbie, Layla Cassidy, it blends the usual mix of faces with someone who comes crashing into the supernatural for the first time. Being set before Scorched Shadows, with the two follow ups dealing with its aftermath, Layla is going to have to deal with some serious changes, from her ...

    A Glimmer of HopeThe Avalon Chronicles, Book 1By: Steve McHughNarrated by: Elizabeth KnoweldenOh, it was nice to see/hear the gang again! Even Nate made a brief appearance in the end! Yippee!! This has all the excitement and thrills of the Hellequin series but focused on a different direction. Same characters but adding some new ones that are really special! Wow, are they. I say, plural form because she has souls in her, she is more than just her...

    I was a bit reluctant to start this new series by Steve McHugh because I loved the Hellequin Chronicles and its main character Nate so much. I'm so glad I did, I loved this book as well! Fantastic new characters were introduced and some familiair faces show up as well. Don't worry, if you haven't read the Hellequin books you can easily start off here! (But you do really want to read Hellequin as well... trust me on this)I'm very much looking forw...

    **ARC provided by publisher in exchange for an honest review**I'm always on the lookout for a new Urban Fantasy series to read, and when I read the blurb of A Glimmer of Hope I was intrigued. The thing with first books in a new series is, that there is a lot of information you have to take in as a reader. You are introduced to a new world and have to get used to the writing style of the author. I liked the beginning and was looking forward to see...

    Is Layla doomed to become a monstrous killing machine like her father? With her blood spilled on an ancient scroll, Layla will find powers and beings living within her that could easily overpower her very essence…unless she learns to fight back. With evil dogging her every move, she could be used as a tool of destruction, especially if those closest to her are in grave danger. What Layla needs is A GLIMMER OF HOPE that she will learn to control...
  • Janet Robel
    High octane action and pure fun. This is amazing right outta the gate. Hit the ground running and never stopped. Monsters, mythology, and ancient scrolls - I'm giving the author a high five here. Layla Cassidy's life is forever changed when she stumbles upon an ancient scroll. She's now on the run and doesn't know who to trust or what to believe. The secondary characters are awesomesauce! Mr. McHugh does an astounding job of giving each of them u...

    Review courtesy of All Things Urban FantasyA GLIMMER OF HOPE is a spin-off of McHugh's Hellequin series, although it seems like you don't really need to know anything about that series to understand this book. It started out slow for me, but eventually picked up the pace unraveling a complex magic filled world and interesting plot. I enjoyed the world building, the unique take on magic, and the central plot which became pretty interesting once th...

    The world was interesting, but the book was missing something vital. The characters all fell flat for me. None of them were truly believable. I lie. Elias was believable. Everyone else felt one dimensional.
