Instead of the deadly force it once was, magic is now a useless novelty. But not for Shame Flynn and Terric Conley, “breakers” who have the gift for reverting magic back to its full-throttle power. In the magic-dense city of Portland, Oregon, keeping a low profile means keeping their gifts quiet. After three years of dealing with disgruntled magic users, Shame and Terric have had enough of politics, petty magic, and, frankly, each other. It’s time to call it quits.When the government discovers the breakers’ secret—and its potential as a weapon—Shame and Terric suddenly become wanted men, the only ones who can stop the deadly gift from landing in the wrong hands.

I am a huge fan of Devon Monk's Allie Beckstrom series, so when I read that Shame was getting his spin-off... I was over the moon!
I loved Hell Bent, I loved getting a glimpse into the characters I fell in love with through the years and also meeting a host of new characters and getting to know this new, post-catastrophe world.
Shame was always a favorite of mine and I worried that his darkness would make a not so enjoyable book... I shouldn't have worried so much, Shame is still in a very dark place, but Devon Monk did a great job in balancing that out in the story.
Hell Bent would have been worth 5 Loveys, if not for one details I can't go into in lieu of spoilers... However, I do comend Devon for being a fearless writer!
If you enjoyed the Allie Beckstrom series, this is a MUST! If you haven't read the previous series, it's totally ok too... Any Urban Fantasy Lover will get sucked in this awesome new series!
