“I fell in love with an angel.

“He was beautiful, and ugly, and corrupt, and innocent, but all the same, I loved him. He had dark, raven hair that hid the thoughts so clearly on his face, azure eyes that stalked his prey, and golden skin marred by wounds I made so long ago. No one could tame him.

But he was mine nonetheless.”

It’s no secret that Nick wants to leave the small Southern town of Fontaine. From his relationship with the town bad boy, to the constant night terrors he’s subjected to, he’s counting down the days until he can finally move himself and his family out. But when a pastor suddenly burns alive right in front of him, he becomes ensnared by a past that torments him, and a man entrenched in lust and blood.

I have to say that the description of this book made it sound so much better than it was. I do believe that the best part of this book was the prologue. That being said, I did read the book all the way through hoping that the weirdness of it would all come together in the end. Unfortunately in my opinion, that was just not the case. It was a semi decent read but it is far from being the best book that I have read.

I will be honest when I say that I really looked forward to reading this book but now I am sitting here after reading it wondering what the hell I just read. This is one of those books that is truly out there. I am all for supernatural/paranormal reads. And even angel versus demons as well but this book left me feeling truly confused and wishing I could rewind time and not read this book. This is a book that is for other people and just not for me.

I do believe that others will enjoy this book. It is on the verge of being a dark read. I would not call this a love story by any means. Nor would I call this a romance either. There are some aspects of love involved in this story but very little. I would lean more towards a dark mystery/suspense read that involve witches and witch hunters. There are graphic details of murder and torture. So be forewarned ahead of time.

Advanced Review Copy

Galley copy of Dog of the Coven provided by Laurel Black in exchange of an honest review.


Hello, I am an avid reader of male/male books. I do not have a favorite genre when it comes to male/male books because I love all of them from romance, dark reads, paranormal, shifter, threesome, whatever I see that catches my eye at the time. I read books about rock stars, CEOs, military, cops, and just the original plain old good boy types of books. Basically when it comes to a book, I read whatever I am in the mood for at the time. So my tastes varies from day to day and sometimes even hour to hour.
