Infernal ties by Holly Evans book review

Note: This is a spoiler free review!


The Hawke twins are hunters. They keep the supernal community of Prague in line, and they’re good at it. The witches whisper their names when something goes bump in the night, and the lycans tell stories of them to make their cubs behave. When Quin doesn’t come home after what should have been a quick rogue-disposal, Evie begins to worry.

Evelyn Hawke is a force to be reckoned with. Nothing and no one will stop her from getting her twin back. She’ll do whatever it takes, even dive into the supernal world and work with those she despises to find Quin and dig him out of the very large hole he’s got himself into.

Little does she know the far-reaching consequences of her actions.

Initial thoughts

I follow Holly Evan’s blog so have been watching her progress in readying to publish her books. I have read snippets of her writing that she shared, all unedited, all mouthwatering. I was excited to read this!


The writing is brilliant. The action and description pieces are the best of the lot, though I would’ve liked a bit more dialogue. I felt as if I was in Prague. (And I really want to try a pastry now!)


The plot was intriguing, several thing were foreshadows for the next book that I need to know! There were a few thing I would’ve liked expanded on. How the supernatural community fit in with the normal humans, the rules as it were. How The Hawke twins fit in to become Hunters.


I love the alchemist. Full stop. We’re done. Bye bye. Also his assistant.

Evie herself is brilliantly bad-ass. I actually felt sorry for some of the supernatural creatures who got in her way when she was on the warpath. I would’ve liked to known a bit more of the reasons why she felt the way she did concerning magic and the supernatural beings.

Overall thoughts

 It was a quick read, written well. My favourites were the description of Prague itself and just the description overall, there’s some many great one liners that had me smiling. I would’ve liked to learn more explanation and not as much fight scenes, but that just means I’ll have to read the next one to find out!

Was it worth the read? Yes

Would I re-read? Yes

Would I read this Author again? Yes

    Great review! I really enjoyed Infernal Ties. A great introduction to the rest of the series! I just finished the ARC for Infernal Bonds and it was just as wonderful 🙂
    Happy Reading!
