Audie Award Finalist, Fantasy, 2014
Another day, another apocalypse....
James Stark, aka Sandman Slim, has managed to get out of Hell, renounce his title as the new Lucifer, and settle back into life in L.A. But he also lost the Qomrama Om Ya, an all-powerful weapon from the banished older gods. Older gods who are returning and searching for their lost power.
The hunt leads Stark to an abandoned shopping mall - a global shopping paradise infested with Lurkers and wretched bottom-feeding Sub Rosa families, squatters who have formed tight tribes to guard their tiny patches of retail wasteland. Somewhere in this kill zone is a dead man with the answers Stark needs. All Stark has to do is find the dead man, recover the artifact, and outwit and outrun the angry old gods - and natural-born killers - on his tail.
But not even Sandman Slim is infallible, and any mistakes will cost him dearly.

Yes. I love the series and the voice actor MacLeod Andrews really enhances the experience. I just thought this story was lacking like there was only 3/4's of a book here,
I have recommended the series to friends, so yes I would with the reservation that this book is not as good as the rest.
This guy is excellent!!!! He really captures the Stark character and the different personalities of the supporting characters. He has the attitude down pat.
I used it to pass the commute time in my car and to further extend the Stark Saga. Not a go out of my way to read story though.
I'm a horror nut! Zombies in particular! Epidemics, end of all things! Also enjoyed Game of thrones very much!
I liked it all, the characters, the Attitude, the "in your face" defiance of religious Norms! Pushing the limits, who am I kidding,? Smashing the limits, making new limits & smashing them as well! When a Man becomes the Devil then tricks God into taking over his duties as Lucifer (Hells Paper pushing Mayor of sorts) while he goes back to being a man (somewhat) killing angels, deals with Vampires, pissing off Ghosts, & Demons & ghouls & old Gods... Oh My..! What more could a guy ask for out of one book??
Everything! This story could go on and on & never get boring!
I don't do spoilers!
Laughed a few times out loud.. But crying.?! Nah!
If you listened to the other Sand Man Slim books Im sure you don't need to read a review to know your buying this one too! You won't be disappointed!
