"This gripping, fast-paced, emotionally intense fourth volume in Green's Secret Histories series is sure to delight fans of paranormal investigator Eddie Drood and his girlfriend, the fabulously strong and strong-willed witch Molly Metcalf....Fans of the series will be delighted by the deft combination of urban fantasy adventure, sharp-edged sarcasm, and treachery upon treachery, which make this installment strong enough to stand alone as a great introduction to Green's work."

    "The Imortals"

    In book four of the Secret Histories series, Simon Green introduces us to the Anti-Droods. The polar opposites of the Drood family and everything they stand for, The Immortals. The plot thickens as new enemies become powerful and allies appear out of the most interesting of places. Eddie Drood is vexed by two deaths his Grandmother, The Matriarch and the death of his Molly. Molly Metcalf the wild witch of the woods. As Eddie uncovers the murderers he also uncovers the plot to release the hosts of Hell upon the earth. It's a nail bitter right up to the end if Eddie will pull it off or will Roger Mornigstar not have to travel to get home for thanksgiving this year. The Armorer amazes us with his toys as Eddie fights again to save the world. It is the best of the series but not the last, as Simon Green left us with a classic cliffhanger ending.

    Would you consider the audio edition of From Hell with Love to be better than the print version?

    It was like a mini crossover. All my favorite players in one book.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Please don't. I prefer imagination.

    "Loved it!"

    I'm a big fan of Simon R. Green. I typically like to read his books, have read all of his Nightside and Shadow Falls but for some reason, the Droods are much more fun to listen to. I have the first 4 of the Secret Histories books on audio, I enjoyed the narration on this one the best so far. Very happy with this purchase.

    "Good continuation of series"

    Action packed, fun listen. The author tends to over-use and re-use phrases a bit much, but the plotting is strong. Could have done without the cliff-hanger ending, too.

    Story
    "Good silly fun"

    The structure of the book is this: semi-comic banter between some characters followed by a battle with lots of things blowing up. Repeat. Repeat again. There's some suspense but not so much that you'll be late for work because you can't bear to pause the story. The novel's ending is a cliffhanger but you know the situation isn't what it seems. It's sort of a super-hero comic for grownups.

    I bought the book during a sale and wouldn't use a regular credit on any others in the series. Despite the clever banter, puns and asides, the writing is too formulaic for me. But who could object to meeting the Bride of Frankenstein, mad scientists, and a dragon's head?

    "I can't wait to listen to this again!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of From Hell with Love to be better than the print version?

    I love the print version, but this narrator is absolutely wonderful. The depth he brings to the characters is amazing, not to mention the perfect timing for Simon R. Green's humour.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Eddie and Molly's interactions just keep getting better.


    Which character – as performed by Gideon Emery – was your favorite?

    I had a geeky girl crush on Eddie Drood before, but now I am totally in love.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed at a good amount of the book, sat on the edge of my seat for all the action, and the ending distressed me so much I could hardly wait for the next book!


    Any additional comments?

    I am a long time fan of Simon R. Green, and I love how he takes each series he writes and intertwines them.
