Hellbound (Sekhet Saga Book 2) by KK Weakley is a dark horror novel to disturb the psyche. The main character Molly has made mistakes, but she can no longer avoid them. She possesses powers that will be tested to the limit, and she will need them all to escape her descent into Hell. If you don't shy away from sex, violence, and powerful characters and themes from the underworld, read on; this book and this writer is for you.

Some books only skirt the edges of horror, but an honest horror writer such as Weakley knows you have to go there. You have to have your characters do those things and go to those places that aren't found in other genres. After all, this is horror. And Weakley is a bold horror writer who isn't afraid to plunge in. Molly is in deep chaos again. I love Molly's character, and this author is adept at crafting strong, fully-fleshed out people, places, and situations; careful to show the positives and negatives of those that live and act in her world. Her world-building is believable, and you find yourself not just observing the mysterious story as it unfolds, but living in it until the conclusion.

I appreciate the character descriptions at the beginning. It prepares you somewhat for their appearances and interactions in the plot, but it doesn't prepare you for the tormenting scenarios and the conflict that unfolds. This is a witch/werewolf/demon lover's dream novel. But inside the horror, you will find softer themes of compassion, heartache, and longing for salvation. For a thoroughly entertaining horror read, don't miss Hellbound (Sekhet Saga Book 2) by KK Weakley.
