Review - Seven Kinds of Hell by Dana Cameron


Thank you to 47 North /Net Gallery for providing me with a copy of this novel

When archaeologist Zoe Miller's cousin is abducted by a vicious Russian "businessman," she must come to grips with a haunting secret: unknown to even her closest of friends, Zoe is not entirely human.
She is a werewolf and the daughter of the "Fangborn," a secret race of werewolves, vampires, and oracles.


Zoe Miller has been on the run her whole life, running with her mother from her father's family but following her mother's death, her father's family come out of the woodwork and all hell breaks loose in her life.

Now I didn't know much about Dana Cameron's body of work before reading this but I can honestly say this, I am going to find out more.

Seven Kinds of Hell is a fast paced exciting novel, the kind of story that grips you from the start and doesn't let go until the last page is digested.

Zoe is an Archaeologist, never staying in the same town for long, her mother has been protecting her daughter all her life from her father's family always keeping on the move and out of sight.

Zoe also has a major problem one that she has kept to herself for a long time, she can turn in to a wolf and because of this she is worrying that she is losing her mind.

She loses her mother at the start of the book and following her death her father's family starts to come out of the woodwork, coming at her at every opportunity, she does the one thing she knows best, prepares to flee.

Her escape is hampered by her cousin Danny being abducted, and Zoe has to help the kidnapper retrieve a figurine, a figurine that is part of a set and Zoe has one of these hidden in her bag, she explores Europe looking for the rest of the set so she can get Danny back and along the way she finds out that these objects are linked to the mythical Pandora's Box.

As she progresses on her journey she realises she knows nothing about being Fangborn, she meets on her journey friends and foes who explain more about what it means and the history behind it.

This story reminded me a lot of Indiana Jones, a kick ass wolfy Indiana Jones!, I loved how the story explored beautiful parts of Europe and the details of the architecture in the cities was a lovely addition too.

This was a great story and I am pleased to say there is a book two in the series called Pack of Strays which I will be reviewing hopefully next month.

I have awarded Seven Kinds of Hell 4 out of 5
