While her body lies comatose on the Mortal Coil, Kirsty's spirit is dragged straight to Hell...which is not quite the fire-and-brimstone abyss she'd expected. In fact, the place is quirky, wacky, and not without charm. Desperate to reunite body and soul before her time runs out, she seeks out allies, earning the friendship of a powerful drag demon, a psychic server, and, most importantly, Hell's civil servant. But what of her growing attraction to Dante, the sexy Reaper with a flair for romantic language-can she forgive him for scything her soul?
Stuck in the netherworld, Kirsty vows she'll do everything on her postmortem bucket list, starting with getting her life back and ensuring that Conrad has Hell to pay!
This novella is a campy romp through Hell. It is not however the fire and brimstone realm of woe and torture bemoaned by clergy the world over. The Hell we have here is one made up of contracts, waiting lines, cross-dressing ferrymen, and reapers to-die-for.
The best things about this book are:
2. The Setting
3. The Campiness
The worst things about this book are:
1. Dante's insistence on switching into Old English speak.
2. The campiness (cute in small doses, but tiresome as time goes on.)
This is ok as a "first in series" and as such...on to book 2.
