Trouble is, the only available position is training Mr. Lucius’ cursed and disobedient hellhounds to track his missing father. No matter how scared Barny is, he’d rather face the fleabags than fail school. Except working with Mr. Lucius drags Barny into a millennia-old family feud, where Louis’ jealous, scheming sister, Gaybreeal, tries every little dirty trick to sabotage them and spark a war between Heaven and Earth. Barny must summon the Alpha within to command the hounds, or end up on their menu.

Heaven and Hound: Rise of the Alpha by LJ Clarkson is about a boy, Barny, who is absolutely fearful of dogs and with a twist of fate gets stuck at a job as a dog trainer....not what he wanted but the only thing available. Now Barny has not much of a choice as he gets dragged into a family war, a possible war between heaven and earth, within it all learning to become the Alpha and control two hell hounds.
Now you can only imagine who the hell hounds belong to, Mr. Lucius, yes Lucius. Then you have Mike, knows his way with a sword, Gaybreeal who creates utmost havoc. These characters are all in good fun with some biblical reference thrown in but its utmost a adventure and journey for protagonist Barney that leaves you wanting to know more. Know More about Barny and his mother, his absent father, if his absent father has anything to do with his journey with these magical characters, with school, etc.
It's a fun tale wonderfully put together with a nice flow, and just enough description to keep the reader engaged. It's a tale that I can see being enjoyed by many for the sake in its entirety its a good story, if you pick up some references thrown within great, if not, it's one of those stories that is enjoyed either way and by many.
About The Author:
LJ 'fibber' Clarkson tells everyone she gave up her Environmental Engineering career to study a Masters Degree in Creative Writing and pursue her writing dreams. But that's not entirely true. Ten percent of the time she sleeps in. Playing spider solitaire consumes 5% (bad, bad habit). Running Indicated, a promotional site for authors steals another 18.75%. In her remaining waking hours, she writes, laughs at her own jokes, reads and falls asleep whenever her boyfriend reels off geeky computer lingo (zzzzzz). If she were a Mastermind, she'd uninvent early mornings, grammar, broccoli, cleaning and her dog's fussy eating habits.
