Kasadya: Hellhound Twisted (Book #2 of the Kasadya Series)

She fought against all odds and became the warrior she was meant to be … or so she thought. In a world where the rules have changed, can she embrace her destiny and become the hellhound she was meant to be?

Kasadya is back in Exsilium and finds her world a little different. Her half-breed fallen friends join her, and they are ordered to complete their apprentice training in order to obtain the right to be guardians. She must learn that her own fate cannot be denied and that others are set to follow. But most of all, she must learn that to trust is the greatest battle of all.

The tables are turned and Kasadya is put to the test. Will she be able to prevent her own death, or that of a friend? Or will her actions call forth the destruction of Earth and Exsilium?

For a Phoenix to rise, it must first die. —Chax De Luca


“Just breathe through it,” Chax tried once more. But my breathing wasn’t slowing down and my normal vision was almost non-existent. What a final moment. Here in the cold with my Custos, no final glory, no grand exit, just us in a deserted place. Suddenly a pain shot through my wing and I screamed in agony. Confused, I looked at the wing, and then at Chax and froze. He just broke my wing, the pain rippling up to my back and into my spine. Shocked and suddenly afraid I looked at him, “Now breathe,” he instructed and I did.

I lay there, pinned beneath him, and started to try and control my breathing. He was watching me intently, his eyes boring into mine. “That’s it,” he said after a few minutes. “Take back control, this is how you will fight it, this is how you will live longer.” I felt heat on my left cheek and then felt it become ice cold, stopping just below my jaw. The same was happening on my other cheek. Tears, I felt my tears. Angry that I would be so weak in front of the one person I wanted to prove myself to, I pushed him off me and got up in super speed. Walking away from him, I wiped the now frozen tears off my face.


Who has stayed up through the night reading a book knowing you'll be kicking yourself come morning.  Little to no sleep, living in a fantasy world the author created.  Closing your eyes... Nope not an option... Fighting heavy eyelids... Not a chance... No way, you're wide awake and turning pages no where near the end.  Reaching the point of no return at 85% - 40 pages left and know that the time in this fantasy world will soon reach it's end.  The pages fly by leaving you hanging by a thread, re-reading the last three pages over again and again all the while saying to yourself "NO WAY, IT CANNOT END LIKE THAT!"

Kas went through hell in Awakened - building courage and putting a wall up to survive.  Now she's back in action saving those she cares about.  Jumping into a situation over and over without thinking - messing up more than she could count.  Fighting for survival at every turn, and dealing with Chax's bad attitude at every turn.  Playing on her emotions numerous times, will she let her feelings ruin her life?  Kas's emotions are her weakness, will Kas have the strength to survive her curse?

If you have not read Kasadya Hellhound Twisted, I suggest putting it on your to be read list...  Reading Twisted without reading Kasadya Hellhound Awakened is not an option.  Twisted picks up right where Awakened leaves off.
