Book Review: Advice by Clyde by Amber Lynn(Nyx Slaughter #5.5)

This is a novelette from the world of Nyx Slaughter. It is told from the perspective of her faithful and reliable Hellhound, Clyde. Join Clyde as he goes about his day in an apartment full of vampires and werewolves. It is meant as a thank you to those who have read the other books in the series and want a little extra Clyde. It can be read by itself, but it is just a normal day in the life of Clyde when he isn't following Nyx on a case.

My Review:
First of all I must say that I haven't read anything else in this series. I tried this book because it was free to see if I liked the writing enough to give it a go and the answer was yes. I have since bought book 1 in the series which is Night Calls.

Clyde is a Hellhound who can talk to his mistress, Nyx, who lives in a house with an assortment of werewolves and humans. He spends his spare time writing an internet advice column and having sexual relations with stuffed animal toys.

"I hope they didn't find out about me humping a fluffy stuffed duck I found lying around the other day. It was just the right firmness to...well you get the idea."

Clyde is not your patient, kindly, compassionate agony aunt and his advice to his followers is to the point and illegal in most cases-and pretty funny. Now he may be about to lose his internet access, and his mistress seems pretty mad at him all the time.

"She must've found out about the duck. I tried to hide the dang thing."

It's a hard life for Clyde, living with someone who hates him, unable to communicate with those around him and getting bored. Only the internet gives him a sense of purpose.

"I have to say the Internet is one of the best things ever created besides maybe the cow."

This book is pretty funny and it is impossible not to love this intelligent hellhound as he talks to us about his typical day. I think he appears in the later books in the series and seems popular among those who follow the series. Based on this I certainly want to give the series a try.

At night is where I am at my best. I prowl the shadows looking for my targets. If you find yourself on my list, you are the scum of the earth and I am here to end your life. Don't worry, I will try to make it as quick as possible.

I work for the paranorm governing body, otherwise known as the Grand Collective. I have lived within their midst my entire life. I am not like them, though. I am just human. It has made my life a little difficult, but I have made it to the top of their team of assassins.

My life is about to turn upside down. Do you want to join me for my new adventure? Who am I, you ask? That's simple, most people call me Slaughter, but you can call me Nyx.
