Contrary to popular belief, Gordon was never an intelligence officer with a license to kill, and Ilona was never the mysterious Russian spy who seduced him. They met in college, in English Composition 101, where Ilona got a better grade. (Gordon is still sore about that.) They have co-authored two New York Times and USA Today bestselling series the urban fantasy of Kate Daniels and the romantic urban fantasy of The Edge and are working on the next volumes for both. They live in Texas with their two children and many dogs and cats.

Batanya and Clovache are bodyguards in the service of the Britlingen Collective. The ladies have only recently completed their last assignment, yet are called in for a new mission. The pair's new client is named Crick. No matter how innocent the man pretends to be, Batanya and Clovache can tell he is hiding information. It is not until the contract is signed that the bodyguards learn where they are going. Crick is heading to Hell so he can steal Lucifer's conjuring ball. It is the only destination in which no one has ever returned from.
***** FIVE STARS! Exciting and intriguing. The Collective is worth having its very own series! *****
Angels' Judgment by Nalini Singh
The Cadre of Ten are the archangels who rule the world in all ways that matter. They meet when Simon, the human Guild Director of the American Chapter, decides he will retire within the next year. Simon informs them that he chooses Sara Haziz to be his successor. Once done, Simon calls in Deacon to be Sara's bodyguard without her knowledge. Why? Certain archangels may feel the urge to "test" her. Though the Guild hunts and retrieves Made vampires who break their Contracts, the hunters do their best not to kill them. However, very rarely, a hunter cracks and seems to go insane. Should that happen the one called "Slayer" hunts down the hunter and terminates him.
Sara knows almost instantly that Deacon is a babysitter, but is shocked to learn he is also "Slayer". The two are out to find a vampire serial killer. The evidence points to the killer being a hunter from the Guild. At the same time, Sara must keep her eyes out for a possible life-threatening test or two.

What none of them have is a cliched, hackneyed storyline in which supernatural hunky lover meets plucky female, immediately takes her to bed for "amazing" sex, then together they defeat the bad evil thing and vow instant and eternal love. The End!
Instead each story is different and everyone of them is a treat. My personal favourite is "Magic Mourns" by Ilona Andrews whom I enjoy in everything she writes.
I was less impressed with "Angel's Judgement" by Nalini Singh, although she is also a great favourite of mine. Anyone who has read "Angel's Blood" will find this story worth reading because it gives the back story about two of the characters in that excellent book, Sara and Deacon. If you haven't read "Angel's Blood" or "Angel's Consort" don't let this piece put you off. Both novels are terrific. And the novella is okay, just not as good as the novels.
Charlaine Harris is on an interesting tangent with "The Britlingens Go to Hell." It can be a pleasure to see a well known writer going in a different direction and this piece stands up very well. I did not know Meljean Brook but I really liked "Blind Spot" and will be looking for more of her work.
No two stories in this book are alike and they are all imaginative and fun to read. And somehow they each managed to get at least one Hellhound into each story quite comfortably.
