A Glimmer of Hope (The Avalon Chronicles #1) Reviews
I must confess I liked the Hellequin books a tiny tad more - but then I "only" really enjoyed the first and it was the sequels that had me fall head over heels in love with the series, and I think this one will be similar.
I really like the new main character - she is flawed and comicated in a way - but very believable and realistic in her actions and reactions. I loved her growing with her challenges and learning to accept what is happening around her!
The world is the same as in the Hellequin bo ...more
Fantastic! I loved the Hellequin Chronicles. I was excited when this book came out! I got it as a Kindle First book. A great book set in the Hellequin Chronicles world. There are some continuing characters from that series but this book stands very well on its own. Layla and Chloe are wonderful! This is a must read!

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 forward to the next installment!
I read Scorched Shadows, the last book in Steve McHugh's The Hellequin Chronicles at the end of last year and loved it so much I included it in my list of favourite books of 2017. A Glimmer of Hope is the first in his new series, The Avalon Chronicles which is set in the same world as the previous series but features new storylines and a new cast of characters.
Layla Cassidy has moved to Southampton to escape her past; from a young age her father taught her how to fight and protect herself but h ...more
Great new series
I'm a big fan of the Hellequin novels and couldn't wait to get started on this new series. It expands the universe the author has created and introduces new characters but also throws in some familiar faces. Good fast paced story and some truly despicable villains make this a brilliant read, pre ordered the next one already and can't wait to read it.
